Blue Hill Reviews

2 reviews
Very family friendly town and quite safe. Surrounded by lots of nature and opportunity for exercise- swimming, kayaking, hiking. Few choices for dining and very limited nightlife. Can feel isolating in the winter months.
Review Blue Hill
Blue Hill is a beautiful town, right on the coast of Maine. I work in Blue Hill and I love all of the shops downtown, and there are some great restaurants in the area like Arborvine restaurant, and the Barncastle. This is mostly a fishing town with some tourism mixed in.
