List of Area Attractions

A wonderful resource guide full of area Maine attractions provided by our venue.

Hey Sailor!

25 East Main Street, Searsport, ME 04974

Grab a bite to eat and enjoy a cocktail at Hey Sailor, started by the owners of the Hichborn.


10 Church Street, Stockton Springs, ME 04981
, (207) 306-9069

Opened in 2018, the Hichborn is on a hilltop street a few minutes off Route 1 in Stockton Springs (population 1,628), a Penobscot Bay–facing town about 30 miles from Camden in one direction and 30 miles from Ellsworth in the other. The Hichborn seats 30, and except at the five-stool bar where fritters or other bar snacks may be ordered, it’s a prix fixe menu based around what’s in season, whether farmed, fished, or foraged. Courses include such dishes as short rib from Wee Bit Farm on potatoes, a single icy oyster from Stockton Harbor, or a galette baked with Maine apples.


357 West Main Street, Searsport, ME 04974

Enjoy dinner or brunch at Rios. The standout dishes from chef Gary Cooper were several: smashed, fried sunchokes, served with a chili-and-lime aioli; house-made ricotta with smoked beets, sliced almonds, and parsley oil; fresh farfalle pasta in a buttercup-squash cream sauce laced with smoked oyster mushrooms and Serrano ham, topped with a poached egg. The nuanced cooking was no big surprise — Cooper moved to Maine fresh off a stint as executive sous chef at a stalwart restaurant on the Washington, DC, fine-dining scene.

Splendiferous Sweet Shoppe

21 East Main Street, Searsport, ME 04974

Pass through Searsport and you might spot Alice, of Wonderland renown, in her blue dress and white apron, or the Queen of Hearts, in her red-and-black regalia, out front of the old Italianate bank building on Main Street. Alice is Meryem Rogan, owner of Splendiferous Sweet Shoppe. The queen is her mother, DeAnne. Inside the store, there’s Wonderland-themed wall art, tea-party paraphernalia, a large cardboard cutout of the story’s DRINK ME bottle, and an ornate Victorian clock whose swaying pendulum would undoubtedly distress a tardy rabbit. Also, there’s a load of candy, including shelf upon shelf of hot-chocolate bombs.

Camden Hills State Park

280 Belfast Road, Camden, ME 04843

Camden Hills State Park is a 5,710-acre public recreation area overlooking Penobscot Bay in the town of Camden, Knox County, Maine. The state park features multi-use trails to Mount Battie, Mount Megunticook, and other scenic locales.
