Directions to Frankfort from Portland, Maine
Assuming you already know how to get to I-95 in Portland:
*** Take I-95 NORTH towards AUGUSTA/BANGOR.
*** Take Exit 44 - Cold Brook Road (I think it says HAMPDEN/HERMON).
*** After exiting make a RIGHT TURN heading towards Hampden.
--- If you turned left and pass a huge truck-stop (Dysarts) you went the wrong way.
*** Take Cold Brook Road until you pass a traffic light (Route 202).
*** Proceed THROUGH the LIGHT until you come to a "T" in the road, this is Route 1A.
*** Make a RIGHT TURN heading SOUTH on 1A towards Hampden/Winterport/Frankfort.
--- Note: Posted speed limits in Hampden are ~25-35mph and the town police are usually around.
*** Take 1A SOUTH passing through Hampden, then Winterport and finally Frankfort.
--- Some landmarks in order along the ways: Rite-Aid (left), Hampden Academy (left),
Mid-Coast Marina (left), Winterport's Steamboat Gas Station (left)...
*** As you come into Frankfort you will head down a hill then over a dam/bridge.
*** Just after the bridge, Route 1A will turn sharply to the left and at that turn you
will see LOGGIN ROAD turning to the RIGHT (or going straight).
*** Make the RIGHT/STRAIGHT-TURN onto LOGGIN ROAD heading WEST.
--- If you pass Smith's Country Store, a church, the Post Office you missed the turn.
--- If you get into Prospect or see route 174 you missed the town completely. Turn around.
*** Take LOGGIN ROAD about 2-3 miles. The valley will open into farmland and you will
see a field on the left and a house/garage w-wreath/barn on the left up a little on a hill.
*** You will see a sign for SWAN LAKE on the right indicating to turn LEFT.
*** Make that LEFT onto NORTH SEARSPORT ROAD.
*** At the FIRST DRIVEWAY make a left and you're here. The mailbox will say 28.
--- The driveway may be a little slippery so be careful making the turn or coming up the hill.
