Gorgeous scenery, lovely homes, quaint little post office and general store, people are extremely nice. A working lobster town set on Atlantic Ocean coves. Couldn't be more quaint and special.

Very small New England town on the river. Very friendly. Quiet. Very safe as well, you don't have to worry if your children are taking a stroll to the Keag store or headed to the playground, the neighborhood watches out for each other.
