We are located at 13 Atlantic Avenue at the very end of Route 15 in Stonington, Maine.

From the South

From south of Brunswick it is faster to take Rt. 95 to Augusta then Route 3 to Belfast, and then Route 1 than it is to take Route 1 up the coast (especially during the summer months).

On Route 1 North go through Bucksport and continue about 5 miles to a Shell station on the right.  Turn right there on Route 15 S to Blue Hill and Stonington.  Continue on Route 15 for about 40 miles (no matter how many right angle turns) through Blue Hill and over the bridge onto Deer Isle and into Stonington village.  Bear left at the bottom of Thurlow’s Hill onto Atlantic Ave.  You’ll know you’re on the right street if after you turn, you have Harbor View Store and Fishermen’s Friend Restaurant on your right side and Camden National Bank on your left.

Continue down this road approximately 1000 feet, you should notice a fire station on your right side.  We are the very next building on the same side of the road. Our building is a beautiful, sage green.

From the East

Take Route 172 South from Ellsworth to Blue Hill.  There you will join Route 15.  Stay on Route 15 S to Stonington.  See above.
