The northernmost state in the eastern U.S., Maine is known as the “Pine Treet State,” for its abundance of forested land. Maine vacation homes and vacation cabins are situated on the 3500 miles of Atlantic shoreline, in the lush forests and mountain ranges, and on the inland lakeshores. With eight distinct regions — Beaches, South Coast, Western Lakes and Mountains, Midcoast, Kennebec Valley, Highlands, Downeast and Acadia, and Aroostook — Maine has a diverse climate, geography, and culture that will surely fit any traveler’s interests. Kennebunkport is an upscale community filled with fine dining, shopping, and glorious mansions along Ocean Avenue. Quieter communities, such as Jonesport, offer seaside vacationing without the crowds and commercialization of tourist-oriented towns. Maine’s maritime history is celebrated in Searsport on the Mid-Coast, a town once famous for its shipbuilding. No matter where you choose to rent your Main vacation home or vacation cottage, you can be sure it will be a beautiful, relaxing trip. Maine’s beaches are popular for their beauty, not for the noisy amusements that fill Atlantic seaside towns in the Mid-Atlantic.
