The Portland region, situated on Casco Bay and with its bustling urban center, provides diverse choices for finding the perfect vacation rental for a week or two. Visitors will encounter an array of unique characteristics. Waterfront settings to watch boats come and go in the harbor, or private beaches to launch a kayak are common features. There are farmhouses, artist studios, and in-town apartments available for making a temporary home. Also, the region’s landscape lends itself to remote settings that are close enough to town for a day of shopping and taking in galleries before heading back home.
Local real estate and property management companies have listings for rental homes, or unique cottages for a summer vacation, as do plenty of private renters. It’s usually easy to book a vacation rental and chat with the owner about rental specifics. Most visitors find it a breeze to find the perfect sanctuary – many make it their own, and return again and again.
