Houlton is in northeastern Maine, on the state’s eastern border with New Brunswick, Canada. The slow-paced town of Houlton appeals to many families seeking a friendly community and a wholesome lifestyle. Homes are affordable here in town – or in more of a country setting, with acreage available. Imagine a big home on over 50 acres for under $300K!
Northern Maine offers a delightful range of outdoor recreation including camping and hiking, canoeing and kayaking, hunting and fishing – plus wintertime activities like snowmobiling and ice fishing, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, and even dog-sledding! Houlton is the seat of Aroostook County, the largest county east of the Mississippi, so there are more amenities in town than you might expect for a community of 6500. This is a region of farms and forests and rolling hills plus many lakes and streams. Numerous organic farms thrive here.
Houlton residents enjoy visiting the city of Fredericton, New Brunswick – the provincial capital, with over 100,000 people – less than two hours to the east. Houlton is one hour south of Presque Isle, Maine (with a small regional airport offering daily flights to DC), and two hours north of Bangor, Maine’s third largest city, with an international airport, shopping malls, dozens of restaurants and stores, a big multipurpose arena/venue, riverfront concerts and festivals, a casino/hotel, and many more “big city” resources.
