One Caveat: Get there EARLY! They pack them in and it's a small place. It is across the street from the marina. Best breakfast in the area.

When the Songo Lock at Sebago Lake State Park in Naples opened for business on June 1, 1830, it catered to 65-foot canal boats laden with lumber, apples and stoves bound from Portland to Harrison. Now, 184 years later, it’s mostly party boats hauling lotion-slathered sunbathers, fishermen and tourists. Songo Lock is the last vestige of the 50-mile Cumberland and Oxford Canal system, which once boasted 28 locks used to level out the 260-foot difference in elevation between Portland Harbor and Long Lake. But one thing hasn’t changed. The lock’s massive wooden doors and cast-iron sluice gears are still operated by hand.

Starting at the parking area off Grist Mill Road, the path takes you through a mixed forest of birch, beech, hemlock, and pine. You cross over a stone wall into a red maple swamp. In the spring, listen for the sounds of returning neo-tropical migrant birds and in the winter, look for the flitting silhouettes of chickadees shivering for warmth. Leaving the red maple swamp you find yourself on one of the several hummocks in the preserve, a nutrient rich glacial deposit where hemlocks have taken root. Venturing out to the Muddy River, a ripple in the water and a loud splash indicates the presence of a territorial beaver. Returning to the trail, you eventually make your way to the place where plants eat insects, moose wallow in the muddy waters, and minks scurry about looking for fish: the Holt Pond Overlook. The Holt Pond Overlook boardwalk crosses over a quaking mat of sphagnum moss. If you bend your knees twice, you will see a slight quaking motion at the end of the boardwalk. This is because the sphagnum moss is floating, colonizing the open water in front of you. The quaking bog is home to pitcher plants, orchids, leatherleaf, swamp rose, and many other unique plants, as it is one of the most diverse natural communities at Holt Pond. Pause at the end of the boardwalk and appreciate the beauty of this spot in every season, when migrant ducks swim about, water lilies dot the surface, reflected red, yellow, orange, and brown leaves shine in the depths, or snow and ice insulate the vibrant life underneath. After the Holt Pond outlook, the trails heads back into a hemlock grove, through red maple low lands and then up to within sight of Grist Mill Road. The trails continues over more dry woodland before returning to a boardwalk through red maple swamp and eventually to another trail head on the Knapp Road off of Fosterville Road. The trail then continues along the south shore of Holt Pond which is dryer but less used then other trail sections. The trail then jogs further south before returning to the pond and then out to Chaplins Mill Road. After walking about 1000 feet on the road, take a left through an old hay field to join back up with the trail for its last leg as it follows the Muddy River. An additional trail leg heads north up and over Grist Mill Road to rocky formations on Byron's Hill.

Run out of an old barn, it's quite unusual and always enjoyable. Beer and wine is served and the barn is open / no AC so not great on super hot days but worth a Google.

Rufus Porter (circa 1850) invented the revolver of which the Colts bought the rights from him. He published the "Scientific American", a magazine still sold today, was a teacher, mural painter, author, and invented an airship/blimp that he hoped would carry '49ers to the Calif. Gold Rush, and was the Martha Stewart of his day - doing it all! This teensy museum is devoted to him and his many accomplishments and has seasonal exhibits on the "rustic arts" where classes can be taken. The highlights are murals painted by him and his son that are displayed on the very walls from historic homes. A move to a larger, more stable building in town is planned for 2014(?) .Gift shop. No photos. Allow 1 hour minimum. $10.00 Adm. fee

If you are shopping in and around Casco, ME, this is a must see. The setting is in an old barn that proprietor Pam has filled with interesting gifts. Not your usual souvenir shop fare! We found several locally made items that were unusual and nicely priced. Pam's garden that surrounds the shop/barn is very attractive also. (From a TripAdvisor Reviewer)
