Maine is overflowing with locations for your dream waterfront home, from freshwater lakes to brackish marshes and of course, the salty ocean. We’ve already featured lakeside lodges and oceanfront homes, so it’s time to take a look at some of our best riverfront properties for sale in Maine.
Hop in your kayak or canoe and join us at a fully-furnished home along the Kennebunk River in Kennebunkport. Next, we are off to the Sandy River in Phillips in Maine’s Western Mountains for a pilot’s dream landing strip, and then we float down the Damariscotta River to a dreamy home in Edgecomb with a private dock. After that, we head down south to a quaint cottage on the Webhannet River in Wells, nestled between a tidal marsh and the ocean. We wrap up our tour at a piece of acreage known as the “Cascades” in Madrid Township that’s fit for a state park at the headwaters of Orbeton Stream flowing through an ancient gorge.
