Mackworth Island – permanent Fairy Houses Village!




 
The Mackworth Island permanent Fairy Houses Village was established by local families in cooperation with the State of Maine Bureau of Parks and Land and the Governor Baxter School for the Deaf.
 

This superb village has been established for several years and gets more magical all the time! It is in constant use all year round (weather permitting.)

The village is a 10 minute walk from the parking lot around the island to the north side. The island is accessible by road, but parking is limited. Mackworth Island is located in Falmouth, just off route 1 heading north from Portland.

See Google Maps.

The official Fairy Houses Village sign reads:

“The village provides fairies with cottages during their visits to the island. We invite you to visit the village and admire the creativity of the builders. If you are so inclined, you may use your own imagination to expand the village or provide needed maintenance to the existing cottages. Thank you for treating the island with care and respect.
This helps to keep the fairies coming back!”

    Hello to all at Mackworth,
    We live in U.K. but my son and daughter-in-law Will and Angela Evans live in Portland and have just visited you this week and said how much they enjoyed building a fairy house – it is lovely now to be able to see where they went – best wishes to all at Mackworth Island perhaps one day we may have the opportunity to visit you – Ann & Colin from Wales – U.K.
