Homes in Coastal Maine Towns

Homes in the Mid Coast region of Maine are as varied as the communities in which they are located. An hour or less from Maine’s largest city, Portland, towns in the mid-coast region range from small and remote coastal towns like Phippsburg to busy villages like Freeport (best known for outlet shopping and the L.L. Bean flagship store).

Maine’s mid coastal region is a hot spot for summer tourism and the year-round home of residents who enjoy the close relationship with the natural world that this area provides. From hiking and sailing in the summer, to snowshoeing and cross country skiing in the winter, coastal Maine is the scenic back-drop for a rich ecosystem of plant and animal life.

Founded in colonial times, coastal towns like Damariscotta and Boothbay Harbor currently provide modern conveniences and utilities in an old fashioned village setting.
