Harpswell Maine Business Association:Including Bailey Island, Orr’s Island and Cundy’s Harbor

Bailey Island Cribstone Bridge in the town of Harpswell

The Town of Harpswell includes Bailey Island, Orr’s Island, Great Island and Harpswell Neck. Harpswell is located on Casco Bay in the state of Maine. Harpswell is just  a short scenic ride North from Portland and Freeport. Riding South from Bath and Boothbay Harbor will take you on a pleasant short ride with beautiful Maine sights along the way. This unspoiled coastal community that is accessible by way of the beautiful Bowdoin College town of Brunswick is a unique coastal community which recently celebrated its 250th birthday. For over 100 years Harpswell has been a mecca for vacationers seeking a saltwater environment, a serene way of life, and an abundance of natural beauty.

Harpswell’s  216 miles of coastline consists of Harpswell Neck, the three large islands of Sebascodegan (Great Island), Orr’s, and Bailey, which are connected by bridges, the most notable being The Cribstone Bridge, and a scattering of over 200 smaller islands accessible only by boat. With some of the few remaining working harbors on the Maine coast, it offers an authenticity of which we are proud.
