There is a great cruising guide for Maine, Hank and Jan Taft's (and I think someone else) Cruising Guide to the Maine Coast. It has detailed descriptions of each anchorage and things to do nearby. Unfortunately it is out of print. But I suspect there are others.
But Active Captain, a website at www.activecaptain.com
is just as good. maybe better. Use the Live Map feature to zoom into where you want to be and look for green icons indicating anchorages. They are rated by users and users review the anchorage and tell you what is near by. Same info for marinas but look for red icons.
