    Escaping to idyllic Maine

    The tranquil town of Union is a small, attractive rural community surrounded by lush, rolling hills and forests, sparkling lakes, and a region dotted with historic landmarks. It's just a short drive from the state capital – Augusta being a mere 45-minute drive to the west – and even closer to the Maine coast, where yacht-dotted harbors and seafood restaurants await. Union vacation rentals allow you to settle in for a getaway packed with hiking, rafting, biking and other outdoor pursuits while getting a real flavor of the state of Maine.

    Outdoor adventures near Union

    Outdoor enthusiasts can head to the trails and lakes around Union to enjoy the local hiking, biking, kayaking, and horseback riding on offer. This is classic backwoods country, after all. The pretty coastal towns and iconic lighthouses of the Maine Atlantic seaboard are also close by. The quaint, history-rich villages of Camden and Rockland cling to the rugged coast just 20 minutes away. Both are well worth a day trip. Browse the pretty boutiques, galleries, and gift shops, savor the tasty seafood, or take a cruise to sport fish or whale watch on West Ponobscot Bay.

    Discover Maine history in Union

    In the heart of Union, you'll find the maple-shaded Union common, a national historic landmark and the oldest public town common in Maine. A short way from the common, the Matthews Museum houses thousands of artifacts of Maine heritage and is open through the summer months – even if you're not a history buff, it's a fascinating introduction to the region. If you're staying at your Union vacation rental over summer, don't miss the town's annual fair – a fun week of family-friendly entertainment, live music, and stalls, where you can sample the local produce, wild Maine blueberries, and the output of local wineries.

    Union through the seasons

    Choosing a Union vacation rental offers something different but equally rewarding throughout the seasons. As spring buds, hitting the trails in the fresh bracing air is the perfect way to shake off the last dregs of winter. Come summer, the coast is hard to resist, with its picture-perfect beaches, and popular summer events like the North Atlantic Blues Fest and the Maine Lobster Festival. Meanwhile, autumnal splendor makes a stay at a Union vacation rental especially beautiful in fall. Then, from November through March, you can make the most of the winter snows and the nearby Camden Snow Bowl.

    Get out and about in Union

    Union vacation rentals are surrounded by rich woodland, wide meandering rivers, and calm lakes. The local hiking trails at Bald Mountain Preserve, less than 10 miles from Union, are popular for birding and offer spectacular lake and mountain views. From there you can pick up the Mount Pleasant Trail to Ragged Mountain, Spruce Mountain, Mount Pleasant, and the coastal town of Rockport. This stretch of coast is as famous for its whale watching as it is for its beautiful lighthouses, which cling to craggy outcrops above crashing white Atlantic waves.
