Советы местных жителей
Blue Hill is so named after Blue Hill Mountain which has wild blueberries growing on it. It also has several hiking trails, all family friendly and maintained. A great place to do some light hiking and enjoy nature and the gorgeous views from the top.
One of our favorite hikes and close to the farm. Parking at the base of the mountain. Great views from the top.
Maintained by the Blue Hill Heritage Trust, this trail is a classic activity for those visiting Blue Hill. Stunning view at the top of Blue Hill village and surrounding waters, lakes, islands.

Рекомендации местных жителей
“In 1796 a group of townspeople in Blue Hill expressed a desire “to become acquainted with the customs and manners of the world and every other useful knowledge.” They opened the town’s first library in a corner of the local grocery store. The grocer doubled as librarian. Overdue fines were six cents a week, with additional fines of two cents per page for spilled drops of oil or tallow. Jonathan Fisher, the first settled minister in Blue Hill, designed a book plate for the library that is still in use today.”

“Barncastle is the go-to restaurant and bar in the area. It's located in an old renovated castle-looking house, and has a bar in front, restaurant with great pizza etc. in back (with reasonable prices), and an inn on the second floor. They sometimes have live music in the restaurant.”

“There is a gorgeous, secluded beach in East Blue Hill called Curtis Cove. Drive into Blue Hill on 172, take a left onto 176, go past the East Blue Hill Library (quaintest library ever), down a hill and usually there are a few cars on the side of the road on the right. This is a more quiet, downeast type beach, you can swim, picnic, look for crabs, rocks to climb on, but it’s not a sandy beach with a restroom and snack shack if you get our drift.”

Point of Interest
“Fabulous was to get an unguided ocean based tour of Stonington and the Islands to Isle au Haut. This is how the island residents get to the island so expect just about anything on the boat. Check schedules. About half of Isle au Haut is owned and managed by Acadia National Park. There are no cars on the island but you can take a bike. There are roads both tarred and gravel.”
