Why Southern Mid-Coast Maine?
Once you visit our beautiful area- Southern Midcoast Maine and Merrymeeting Bay, you won’t want to leave. This beautiful coastal region has white sandy beaches, unspoiled off shore islands, golf courses, shopping, excellent schools, and lots of scenic vistas.
It’s a great place to live, work, and retire. It’s also a great place to buy a home, and here are some reasons why:
1. The Bath-Brunswick area has a stable employment base, low crime rate, and is within a short commute to Maine largest city, Portland.
2. Brunswick Maine and the Southern Mid-Coast of Maine is very “cosmopolitan” because of Bowdoin College, Bath Iron Works and two hospitals, Mid-Coast Regional and Parkview, all of which bring new people from all over the nation into our community.
3. It's hard to find a better place to live where you can enjoy the beautiful rocky coast of Maine and still be within an easy drive to the mountains and the Maine wilderness with its excellent fresh water fishing, hunting, hiking and camping.
Where is the Southern Mid-Coast Region?
Situated on the coast of Maine, the southern Mid-Coast area in just 2 ½ hours from Boston, and conveniently located between the state’s major population centers.
These picturesque communities create a special blend of small town coastal living with upscale shopping, health care and cultural attributes. The area also includes Merrymeeting Bay, a large fresh water confluence of six rivers, the Kennebec, the Androscoggin, the Cathance, the Eastern, the Muddy, the Abbagadasset , and many smaller streams.
The Sheepscot River and the New Meadows River are also important waterways for boating enthusiasts. Harpswell is comprised of 2 rocky peninsulas and connected islands which project into Casco Bay. Route 1 and I-295 provide easy access to Portland, 25 miles south (30 minutes driving time). Bath is northeast of Brunswick on Route 1, 8 miles (10 minutes driving time); Augusta is 30 miles north by I-295.
At the 42nd parallel, the northern climate is tempered by the coast. Compared with inland regions, the cold winter is moderated by the ocean and the cooling breezes of summer bring welcome relief. July is the warmest month with an average high of 75 degrees and an average low of 55 degrees. January is the coldest month with an average high of 30 degrees and an average low of 11 degrees. Average annual rainfall is 44.8 inches; 72 inches of snow fall in a normal year. The cool sunny days of Autumn bring spectacular fall foliage.
