Whether you choose to take advantage of the many and varied activities offered on the Maine Coast, or just kick-back on the lawn or the beach, Ye Olde Forte Cabins offers a most enjoyable vacation experience at an affordable price in a small community environment.
Many of our guests--including some who have come back for 50 or more years--have made friendships here which span generations. Families whose children "grew up together" during their summer stays often reserve the same weeks year after year, enjoying visiting, dining and activities together. The private beach lends itself to kayaking, wind surfing, canoeing, scuba diving and of course, all kinds of fun in the sand. For boaters, a limited number of moorings are available at an additional cost.
Others enjoy the more solitary pursuits of resting, reading, relaxing and just taking in the view.
For the adventuresome traveler, we recommend:
Walk to Pemaquid Beach, historic Fort William Henry, museum, and restaurant.
Bicycle to the splendor of the Pemaquid Point Light House, the scenic fishing village of New Harbor, stores, restaurants and gift shops.
Take to the Water and cruise to beautiful Monhegan Island or go fishing or on a whale watch. Explore the deep seas or the many rivers and streams.
Make a Day Trip. Boasting museums, art galleries, antique shops, fabulous dining and world class shopping, Boothbay Harbor, Camden, Rockland, Bar Harbor, Freeport and Portland are all within easy reach.
