The Bradley Inn is in a very special area, ideally situated for reaching many of Maine’s iconic spots. You can explore New Harbor and Pemaquid Point or move up the coast a bit to the Rockland/Camden area. With its granite shores, crashing waves, lobster buoys, and wildlife, you can literally just walk from the inn to explore the area around the Point. The Bradley Inn is the perfect landing spot for your Maine vacation.
