Chebeague Island Inn is accessible by boat only; however most of our guests do "arrive" by land. We are located just off the coast of Yarmouth, Maine, about 20 minutes North of Portland off 295. See google maps for a general overview.
There are two ferry companies that service Chebeague Island, in addition to water taxis.
Departing from Portland, Maine
If you're planning on keeping your car in Portland, Maine, there are a variety of parking garages. Casco Bay Lines is the ferry company that services Chebeague Island from Portland (they also have a covered garage). Located on Commerical Street in downtown Portland, the ferry is about $13 person. It's a scenic ferry ride, about an hour and a half, that stops at all of the islands along the way. The ferry landing on Chebeague Island is on the other side of the island, so please be sure to let the Inn know when you're arriving so the complimentary van will be there. Directions to Casco Bay Lines.
Departing from Yarmouth, Maine
If you prefer to drive a little bit closer to the Inn, there is a satalite surface parking lot on Route One in Cumberland, operated by Chebeague Transportation Company. Guests are welcome to park their cars in this lot and take the complimentary shuttle bus directly to the CTC ferry on Cousins Island in Yarmouth, Maine. This ferry costs about $7.50 each way, and takes about 15 minutes. It lands at the base of the Inn (about a 5 min. walk uphill). Please note that CTC accepts cash only; however, you can pre-buy tickets online and also receive a slight discount. Directions to the CTC satalite parking lot.
There are water taxis that service the island, much like taxis that service the land. On a water taxi, it takes about 25 minutes to travel from Portland to Stone Pier on Chebeague Island (the base of the Inn). Maine Red Line Water Taxi is located at Portland Yacht Services at 58 Fore Street. In the summer, it's advised to make a taxi reservation in advance, as the water taxis are in high demand. The Ocean Gateway Garage is right around the corner. Directions to a Water Taxi
