Local Lodging and food

Peaceful views and a slower pace is what's on tap! You won't find chain hotels or restaurants Downeast, instead you'll be greeted by local Bed and Breakfasts each unique and worthy of a return trip, and local Restaurants serving mouth-watering fresh food. We encourage you to check out  AirbnbCouchsurfingHome Away Vacation Rentals,  and VRBO for local accommodations. 


Remember we host a HUGE picnic after the race open to everyone. A few local recommendations not too far from Pembroke include Pie Ladies Bakery (Pembroke), New Friendly Restaurant, and Helen’s Restaurant

Camping at 
Cobscook Bay State Park


The wildlife-rich waters of Cobscook Bay surround this 888-acre park on three sides, providing opportunities to watch birds and observe the ebb and flow of the region's impressive tides. Cobscook, the Maliseet-Passamaquoddy tribal word for "boiling tides," aptly describes this setting where the tidal range averages 24 feet and can reach 28 feet (compared to a 9-foot average tide along Maine's southernmost coast).



Cobscook Bay State Park is a great base for family camping and explorations in easternmost Maine. Many of the park's 106 campsites (both for tenting and RVs) border Whiting Bay, a sheltered inlet within the larger bay.


Location: 15 minutes from start line.
