    Soak up the solitude of coastal living in St. George

    On a forested peninsula jutting into Penobscot Bay, the town of St. George is a haven for artistic types and outdoor enthusiasts alike. Made up of a collection of quaint seaside villages, this quiet fishing town, established in 1803, is the picture-postcard image of Maine coastal living. While the year-round population is a mere 3,000 people, the number swells to nearly 7,000 in summer, thanks in large part to visitors, particularly writers, artists, and naturalists, who flock to the peninsula to enjoy its laid-back lifestyle, unspoiled nature, and fresh ocean air.

    From blue waters to blues clubs

    The villages come alive in the summertime, with enough festivals, parades, and lobster cookouts to make you want to leave big-city life behind. A St. George vacation rental puts you on the doorstep of some of the Maine coast's best water activities, including sailing, kayak tours, and fishing in Muscongus Bay. Hidden beaches offer peaceful swimming and beautiful ocean views. If you venture inland, you'll find plenty of forested hiking trails. A surprising live blues scene will delight the music lovers in the bunch.

    Where art coexists with nature

    Step out of your St. George vacation rental and you're just as likely to cross paths with huge wooden sculptures as you are with rare birds. Our feathered friends flock to the many bird sanctuaries of the Franklin Island National Wildlife Refuge. For even more wildlife, head to the islands making up the Brothers and Hay Ledge nature preserve. Art lovers will enjoy wandering the trails of the Langlais Sculpture Preserve, and just might recognize the colonial Olson House from a number of famous paintings. Feeling nostalgic? The shops and old-fashioned general stores of Tenants Harbor will give you a flavor of the old times.

    Don't forget the coats and sweaters (even in summer)

    With annual snowfalls more than twice that of the national average, don't be surprised if you find your St. George vacation rental coated in a thick blanket of the white stuff from December through March (and possibly longer). The crisp winter air is sure to wake you up, as temperatures at that time dip well below the freezing point. Warm breezes offer a change of pace in the summer months, with 70+ degree temperatures making June through August a pleasant time for exploring the coast (though you'll probably want layers at night).

    Birds of a feather flock together

    You'd need weeks to visit all the nature preserves and bird sanctuaries surrounding St. George. Countless species of marine birds flock to the Brothers and Hay Ledge Preserve, the 12-acre Franklin Island National Wildlife Refuge, and the various islands of Muscongus Bay. Plant life on the peninsula varies from spruce forests to grassy fields to raspberry thickets, making for some breathtaking backgrounds to the area's many hiking trails. The coasts along Penobscot Bay are dotted with tranquil beaches and charming harbor towns that are just waiting to be explored.
