The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Hit the Coast in Cape Elizabeth


4. Insider’s Tip

The Black Point Inn is the starting point for a winding, cliff-side trail walk with spectacular views.   

To see the former haunt of another famous American painter, drive or bike seven miles to Prouts Neck, an exclusive coastal community in the town of Scarborough, where you’ll find the studio of Winslow Homer. The space is currently closed for renovations, but it’s still visible from a trail winding around rocky cliffs. Park at Scarborough Beach and walk to the Black Point Inn where the public trail begins. It’s not the easiest hike, but the incredible ocean scenery alone is worth the trip.
