This was our fifth year at Newagen and plan on returning next year, God willing.
We have already made our reservations.
Newagen is the type of place you can park your car and never touch it until you are ready to leave, which is what we do.
The staff has always been very friendly and helpful.
We absolutely love the food and have all of our meals right there. They also have a huge buffet breakfast.
Beautiful grounds with spectacular views. The flower gardens are amazing.
I just wish we could spend more time there.

Newagen Inn made my first visit to Maine a wonderful one. It's such a beautifully run property by management and the Inn's staff was so caring and accommodating. The bar and restaurant were also great with plenty of delicious food and beverage options. It's such a gorgeous place. You won't regret staying here.

We have been eating at "The Inn" on Southport for 30 years. Chefs have come and gone. This year's is really good. We love having dinner on the inside porch overlooking the harbor. Good bar. Attentive service. Real Maine view. Pleasant vibes. This is Maine at its best.

Newagen is a must-stop for any Rachel Carson fans. Even though we weren’t staying at the Inn, we had a lovely time wandering the grounds where she spent time with her friend, Dorothy.

Take the “Sunset Path” across from the main entrance of the inn and walk a short distance to find two Adirondack chairs facing the ocean with a plaque honoring Carson. Her ashes were scattered at the edge of this sea, and it’s a peaceful place to take in the tidal pools she wandered in, and watch cormorants, eiders, ospreys, and gulls fish. We came back at sunset and had the place to ourselves for a lovely picnic and view.

The Inn’s restaurant was a great place for lunch. Fried clams and fish tacos were on point. The cocktails were refreshing, and we still had room for two pieces of blueberry pie split between four people.

Rachel’s last letter to Dorothy, written on Newagen Inn stationery, is framed on a desk to the right of the main desk.

To continue your Rachel Carson tour, loop around Southport along the western side. Rachel’s house is on 16 Carson Lane (private driveway, so you can’t get up close). Dorothy lived close by on Dogfish. There’s a very short hike and lovely beach near Hendricks Head lighthouse that they also frequented. Happy fangirling!

“To stand at the edge of the sea, to sense the ebb and flow of the tides, to feel the breath of a mist moving over a great salt marsh, to watch the flight of shore birds that have swept up and down the surf lines of the continents for untold thousands of years, to see the running of the old eels and the young shad to the sea, is to have knowledge of things that are as nearly eternal as any earthly life can be.”

Thank you for this beautiful recap of your Rachel Carson tour. So many people tell us that Rachel's presence is still felt very strongly on Newagen's property and we could not be more honored. We're glad you found us!

We have a long tradition (30 years) of dining at Newagen over its various iterations. We like the inner porch in the pub which gives you a view, but shields you from the elements and is airier than the tables closer to the bar. The lobster roll was good, but not exceptional. The accompanying Caesar salad was a bit strange as it had only four small dots of dressing on the leaves and no Parmesan cheese. And the leaves were not the tenderest making it a bit tough and harder to cut. Service, though, was outstanding, as we had Ricardo, our favorite waiter! We will be back, however, multiple times over the next few weeks to dine with friends and to sample other dishes on the menu. We are missing the firecracker shrimp appetizer, though.

Thanks for your feedback. You're right....Ricardo is a gem! Looking forward to having you back for your "menu odyssey"!
