Take a Luxury Yacht Charter to an Artist’s Paradise: Monhegan Island
Written by Missy Johnston
Monhegan Island Harbor
There is an island off the coast of Maine where time appears to stand still. Small, shingled 19th-century homes dot the otherwise undisturbed landscape. Rocky shores, wildflowers, and the Atlantic delight the soul. Monhegan Island attracts those who view life with an artist’s eye, as it has for centuries. Edward Hopper, George Bellows, Rockwell Kent, and others stayed and painted here. You can read more about them in this article.
Visitors come to paint, seek out rare birds, eat fresh lobster, and hike through serene forests. Monhegan Island invites people of all ages to unplug and focus on the sunset instead of their cell phones. One particularly lovely way to pay a visit is via a private charter yacht. Sail into the natural harbor and watch for whales along the way! Read more about this natural wonder here.
