    We viewed Cuckold Lighthouse from the Southport town landing, which in itself is a wonderful site with fantastic views. The lighthouse is one of the most charming that I've seen in Maine.

    Historic white clapboard building housing the quintessential simple coastal library. When we visited, they were having a book sale and even giving some away. Wonderful place and well worth a visit.

    We visited the museum after reading a brief description in a local publication. We were so lucky to be guided by volunteer Jean Thompson, a relative of the owner of the house. She is a long-time resident of Southport and could describe all of the many household objects and art in the house. We learned how the house was moved to the site. Wonderful insight into the life of the hardy Maine residents and their love of their beautiful region. The boat shed was terrific, too, with several types of boats, boat-building tools, fishing photos, and ice-harvesting gear. We're history-lovers and spent over an hour. Best part is the knowledge and enthusiasm of the volunteer docents! Nice drive around the Southport island and stop at the marina for lunch or a drink. Museum is free and open Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday for midday hours in the summer.

    Fantastic owners and guides. The owners are very knowledgeable and make the walk enjoyable and know the Alpaca well. A blend of some wooded trails and then down to the ocean for great views with a fuzzy companion. The Alpacas are gentle, easy to hand feed and quite enjoyable to be around. Easier to walk than a horse, or a black lab for that matter ( black lab, you know who you are) no skill needed. The farm has a nice small store of fantastic hand made soap, really good , and a few alpaca fiber products like socks for purchase. Suitable for most ages and nice little farm to visit to see some Alpacas and few other animals for kids. All adults on our visit, kids at heart.

    One of our favorite stops on the island of Southport. Great food great gifts and very friendly people. And the best coffee around. We plan on stopping back in the fall.
