North Haven Island is a year-round community with a k-12 school, and a summer haven for many generations of families. These days, there is always something “happening” at Waterman’s Community Center, the Grange, the School, Mullen’s Head Park, several Farms, Restaurants, the Brewery, the Church, the Historical Society, the Sailing Club with Tennis, the Golf Club and more!
A car and passenger ferry operates all year to North Haven from a terminal in Rockland. Penobscot Island Air, an air charter service based at Owls Head Airport in Rockland, carries passengers and freight from the mainland to North Haven. There are frequent regularly scheduled commercial flights from Boston to Owls Head (airport code RKD). In addition, private boats travel from Camden, Rockland, and Deer Isle during summer months and all year long, weather permitting.
If you keep your own boat in Pulpit Harbor, one mile down the road from the Cookie Tree Farm, your closest fun destination is Camden. Rockland and Rockport are not far and offer added Maine services and harbors.
North Haven is a birding destination now also – with a huge variety of local and migrating colorful birds reported from early Spring on, not to mention ospreys, eagles and local birds all year long. In the Bay we regularly see dolphins, seals, and the occasional Minke whale.
Islands in the view from the Cookie Tree Farm and the North Shore here first reminded the current owners of being on the water in Greece – unspoiled , open, clean water, no heavy traffic in any season here, on land or sea!
