The following links may help you or your guests and friends to successfully navigate a vacation at Higgins Beach. Welcome to Maine... the way life should be!
How to Get Here
For simple driving instructions on how to get to Higgins Beach, simply click on the photo of Higgins at the left. Print out the page and remember to bring it with you in the car.
For most of you who didn't grow up in this area, your first memories of Higgins probably came as a result of spending time here with friends or in a rental cottage. I do not handle summer or winter rentals. For such information, we would suggest that you contact Southern Maine Beach Rentals. Their website is can be found at
Some property owners like to handle their own cottage rentals, and as a community service,
we would like to direct you to those opportunities.
For property management services or concierge services, we would highly recommend Dave or Linda Brookes at Nextasea Enterprises at 207-883-2547 or see their web site at http://www.nextasea.com/

Where to Stay on Higgins Beach
Space is obviously very limited on the beach peninsula, but we do have two excellent establishments which offer overnight accommodations.... reservations will most likely be necessary, so make your plans early.
The Breakers Inn is located directly on the Atlantic Ocean at Higgins Beach. Built as a private home in 1900, it has served the public since the early 1930's. Rodney Laughton is the innkeeper.
Higgins Beach Inn
The Higgins Beach Inn is a three story colonial revival structure whose origin dates back to 1897, is within a stone's throw of the unspoiled, sandy, Higgins Beach. Off the beaten path, the friendly atmosphere of the Inn welcomes you. Bob Westburg and Diane Garofalo are the innkeepers.
