Machias is on Maine’s scenic coast 90 minutes east of Bangor (Maine’s third largest city), and an hour from Maine’s border with Canada. This quaint, family-oriented New England town presents a real opportunity for those interested in “the traditional Maine way of life.” With excellent private, parochial and public schools, Machias is wonderful for families, or for empty nesters. Machias hosts a branch of the University of Maine, offering a variety of degree programs plus theater, dance, and more.

Settle in an area known for breathtaking vistas, fascinating wildlife, and recreational galore in all seasons. Quiet harbors are dotted with working boats and pleasure craft. Local beaches feature powdery sand – and one beach is composed entirely of smooth, colorful stones that clatter musically in the surf. Browse enchanting antique shops and art galleries, and visit local restaurants serving pizza, the freshest seafood and much more. The “Blueberry Capital of the World,” Machias hosts an annual festival each summer when the streets of downtown come alive with delicious foods, art, crafts, and entertainment for the whole family.

Machias is one of the safest small towns in New England. Housing options include ocean-view homes and lakefront properties, historic farms with abundant acreage, and all manner of in-town homes. If you dream of country living, you can find it here.

Nearby Bangor is home to an international airport, shopping malls and theaters, museums, a casino/hotel, riverfront music and art festivals, and more. Machias is 65 miles from Acadia National Park (with 50,000 acres of parkland, “Golf Digest” level golf courses, and a hundred miles of trails for hiking and biking) and 200 miles from Portland.
