A quaint New England village with colonial-style homes and a sleepy, small-town atmosphere, Bowdoinham is a peaceful spot in one of the most scenic regions of Maine. Our Bowdoinham vacation rentals are the perfect way to experience its quiet streets and gentle charm.
Bowdoinham is located on the central Maine coast, about 30 miles north of Portland and 25 miles south of Augusta. It is perched on the shores of Merrymeeting Bay, a shallow inland body of water that offers plentiful opportunities for swimming, kayaking, and boating.
Bowdoinham's unique position on the water makes it a perfect launch point to explore the winding rivers, islands, and estuaries that make up the body of Merrymeeting Bay. Bring your binoculars and keep an eye out for eagles, herons, and other wildlife as you paddle your way through the peaceful waters. The town is also home to a beautiful waterfront park, which hosts free concerts in the gazebo on summer nights.
Bowdoinham is largely notable for its proximity to Portland, Augusta, and nearby Brunswick, which is home to an impressive art museum and the renowned liberal arts school, Bowdoin College. All three are accessible within a short drive, which makes our Bowdoinham vacation homes a great way to avoid the crowds while attending a graduation or visiting the city.
