Overnight Accommodations

Accommodations on Star Island are simple and rustic. Visit our accommodations page to learn more about spending the night on Star.

Can't stay overnight?

If you are unable to stay the night on Star Island you are welcome to still attend the festival 'a la cart-style'. Ferry tickets are available through the Isles of Shoals Steamship Company for both Saturday and Sunday. Food will be available for purchase at our island grill and snack bar. We are not offering an all inclusive day rate for the Kittery Family Festival. We highly recommended staying the night to get the full Star Island experience!
