THE MIDCOAST AREA of Maine offers a superb quality of life. Spectacular coastline, pastoral farmlands, pine forests, and charming New England villages provide the backdrop for four seasons of unparalleled beauty.

Nearby Camden Harbor is home to many fine old schooners and yachts. Opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts (boating, skiing, hiking, camping, etc.) abound. Acadia National Park is two hours north.

Midcoast Maine enjoys a rich and diverse cultural life. The Rockport and Camden Opera Houses and the Strand Theater in Rockland offer a broad selection of live performances. There are ample choices for artistic endeavors, educational enrichment and alternative healing.

Local farms practice organic and biodynamic gardening and offer produce for sale at dozens of weekly farmers’ markets.

Additionally, midcoast Maine boasts many and varied local artisans who produce and sell products as varied as cheeses, skin care, soap, furniture, blankets, glass, pottery, wine and chocolates.

Maine’s two largest cities, Portland and Bangor–homes to notable symphonies, museums and professional theatre companies–are both an hour-and-a-half away.
