Heading Downeast along the Coast of Maine turn north up Narraguagus Bay and you will find Foster Island (NOAA chart #13324). This 300+ acre island in Harrington (near Millbridge) offers a variety of landscapes for the adventurer to enjoy. Access to the Island from the main land is about a twenty-minute boat ride from the Millbridge Town landing to the pier on the southeast side of the Island located in a protected cove.

From the Pier follow a path to a small simple cabin nestled in the depth of this cove facing out to the South. The current one bedroom homestead with outhouse was built in the late 80's and provides a rustic escape on this picturesque Island. In earlier times, there were four cabins on the Island primarily located on the south end. Here they had cleared the land for farming and evidence of these homes and of the fields still exist today.

The expanse of the Foster Island is awesome. The southern end offers fields interspersed with pines and birch and breath taking views south out Narraguagus Bay to Trafton and Pond Island and southeasterly to the islands of Dyer and Strout and beyond. Interior pathways meander around and down the center of the island to the northwest and northeast end. It is here you will find a mixture of bold shorefront that transitions into a sandy beach. Just off the eastern side of the Island as the tide recedes, one can see the seals rest upon exposed ledge and warm themselves in the sun as osprey and eagle fly overhead. There are indications of wildlife all around this lovely island making it a dynamic and unique escape from the mainland.

The Rockefeller family purchased Foster Island in the 1960's. In 1973, Mr. and Mrs. David Rockefeller placed a conservation easement on the property that is currently held by the State of Maine. Foster Island offers the opportunity to own a unique and virtually untouched island off the coast of Maine. The current conservation easement would allow one to construct a total of 5 homes on the property thereby preserving the quiet enjoyment of this island for years and generations to come.
