Coastal Maine vacation rentals on or near the Midcoast,
Maine Beaches, and Portland region
If you want a combination of urban sophistication and classic Maine villages and beaches, Midcoast Maine to Portland and the southern Maine beaches area has it all. There is a great variety of coastal Maine vacation rentals in all shapes and sizes from Freeport, (home of L.L.Beans) to York. Stay in a lovely Victorian home near the Old Port in Portland, or step onto the beach from your vacation cottage in Wells. Visit Cape Elizabeth, the Islands of Casco Bay, Ogunquit, Kennebunkport (home to the Bush’s), and many lovely coastal villages and farms. The Portland area offers extraordinary dining out opportunities with everything from classic Maine lobster dinners to vegan farm to table cuisine.
You will find wonderful art, local crafts, Maine farmstands, organic produce, and sophisticated shopping possibilities. The Trader Joes in Portland is bigger and better than the one in Boston. And don’t forget to visit Maine’s beautiful art museums, including the Museum of Art and the Farnsworth in Rockland, which features art of the Wyeth family.
