Chebeague Island

Chebeague Island is one of Maine’s most beautiful islands! It is home to generations of year-round and summer residents. At almost five miles long and 1½ miles wide,Chebeague Island is the largest island in Casco Bay and is home to over 360 year-round people and more than 1,600 summer residents. Its name means "isle of many springs.”

Chebeague Island has a storied history of sailing, notably the stone sloopers, men who carried ballast for the sailing ships of the 19th century America and later granite for many of the country’s most spectacular buildings, including the Washington Monument. The many lovely Greek Revival homes on the island were built by these sloopers.
