Come to Maine for an exceptional lifestyle! The acclaimed four-season environment has earned Maine the nickname “Vacationland.” Houlton sits on Maine’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 in town, or in a nearby country setting where acreage is available, and commutes are easy.
Northern Maine offers a delightful range of outdoor recreation including camping, hiking, canoeing and fishing in warm seasons, and wintertime activities ranging from snowmobiling and ice fishing to cross country skiing and even dog sledding. Houlton is the seat of Aroostook County, the largest county east of the Mississippi. This is a region of farms and forests and rolling hills plus many lakes and streams. Numerous organic farms thrive here.
Many Houlton residents enjoy visiting the city of Fredericton, New Brunswick – the provincial capital, with over 100,000 people – 75 miles east. Houlton is one hour south of Presque Isle, Maine (with a regional airport offering daily flights to/from Newark and DC), and two hours north of Bangor, Maine’s third largest city, with an international airport, shopping malls, dozens of restaurants and stores, riverfront concerts and festivals, and many more “big city” amenities. Portland is 3.5 hours away, and Quebec City is 5 hours from Houlton.
