The Guide

Home products with bold, Maine-inspired prints, a fearsome pirate drove the design of this MDI inn, do your house proud with a portrait by a local artist, this Freeport shop is your new happy place, you didn’t want to nod off in this former church in Alna, and a 19th-century inventor’s home needs a hero.
