Boothbay Region Land Trust

One of our favorite places

Here at Hodgdon Island Inn, Richard and I have come to claim Porter Preserve as one of our favorite places in Maine in the Boothbay Region!  No matter the time of year there is always beauty and magic to be had at Porter Preserve

Boothbay Region Land Trust's preserve on Barter's Island

There is always beauty and magic to be had

We love to meander along the trail (to be precise:  the 0.86-mile loop trail) and take in the spectacular views of the neighboring island, the water and

Well marked trail around the preserve

A peek into the "Enchanted Forest"

the “enchanted forest”, (especially at sunset, but then you know how much we love our pink Maine sunsets!). 

Porter Preserve

Pamela's favorite spot in Porter Preserve

We have also seen seals lolling around the ledges at low tide while eagles and ospreys fly overhead.  To get to Porter Preserve from Hodgdon Island Inn Bed & Breakfast just turn left out of the driveway onto Barter’s Island Road; go over the Trevett Swing Bridge; turn left onto Kimballtown Road and follow the signs to Porter Preserve as the road dead ends into the parking area for the preserve just past the cemetery (or if you’re looking for a stretch of the legs, it’s an easy walk from the inn).
