McLoon’s Lobster Shack
McLoon’s is walking distance from the cottage on Spruce Head Island. They feature fresh lobster rolls and other local fare. Located directly across from McLoons is their wholesale lobster buying station where local fisherman bring their daily catch.
The Kelpie Gallery is an independent art gallery in South Thomaston, Maine, exhibiting works of art by established and emerging artists, many of whom have a connection to Maine or call it home. With every show, event, opening, and fundraiser at The Kelpie, our goal is to engage and strengthen Midcoast Maine's creative economy. We hope you will join us in our dedication to this place, which has inspired centuries of artists, appreciators, and patrons.
maine Lobster Festival
It all began at a gathering of a group of citizens and summer folk in March 1947, where a discussion arose as to what could be done about reviving the summer activities that Camden had prior to the war years. It was decided that having a marine festival of some sort would be appropriate. Having it become an annual affair was intentional from the beginning. The festival is held every year on the first weekend in August.
