Area Activities and Midcoast Maine Attractions

Midcoast Maine attractions include activities for every taste and energy level. There are, first of all, a number of pleasant ways to spend your time here at Coveside and the immediate area of Five Islands. There are three hybrid mountain bikes for complementary guest use to explore Georgetown’s quiet back roads or the trails at Reid State Park. Guests are also invited to use our canoe and two kayaks to paddle to the nearby town dock and the Five Islands Lobster Company, or to inlets along the Little Sheepscot River.¬†Our club room addresses both ends of the activity spectrum — it includes a flat screen television and DVD player, game table, and lounge area for relaxing. And there is an exercise bike, cross-country ski machine, a weight machine and free weights to work off those lobster dinners from local restaurants. And there is always the short walk to the picturesque hamlet of Five Islands and the rocks, surf, and forest of the Nature Conservancy’s Ledgewood Preserve.

The tabs above link to various activities a bit further afield: the short drive or bike ride to Reid State Park with its spectacular beaches and headlands, kayaking around MacMahan Island or across the Sheepscot to our favorite picnic island, trips to nearby lighthouses or lobster wharfs, exploring the coastal towns of Boothbay Harbor, Camden, and Freeport, or visiting the many area museums and the extraordinary Maine Coastal Botanical Gardens. No matter the length of your visit, you are unlikely to exhaust the wealth of interesting and exciting things to do in our area.
