Tenants is a popular cruising stop with plenty of guest moorings, a well-stocked general store, and a welcoming boatyard owned by renowned Maine artist Jamie Wyeth, who also has a lovely home on Southern Island lying to port as you enter the harbor. The lighthouse, perched on the island’s east end, presents a painterly vision coming out of the fog approaching the harbor from the south or east. Like many Maine harbors, Tenants is a working ﬁshing village, so be prepared for the sound of diesel engines cranking up before dawn. If you’d prefer something a little quieter, Long Cove lies just to starboard as you enter Tenants. There are no moorings in Long Cove, but it’s an easy and safe place to anchor. If the winds are blowing hard out of the east or southeast, Long Cove is preferable to Tenants.
