The Merrymeeting Board of REALTORS® covers one of Maine’s most treasured regions. The Merrymeeting area offers housing choices for everyone with a healthy mix of new construction to traditional New England, subdivision to country setting, and of course the coast.
Merrymeeting Bay touches three Maine counties Cumberland, Sagadahoc, and Lincoln.
The Kennebec River, Androscoggin River, Cathance River, Eastern River, Abagadasset River, and the Muddy River all flow into Merrymeeting Bay.
- More of an estuary because of the amount of fresh water,
- Merrymeeting Bay is home to birds, migratory fish, animals, and even a large population of Bald Eagles.
- Fishing, boating, swimming, canoeing and kayaking are all enjoyed by many residents and visitors to our region because of the size of the Bay.
Divided by the Androscoggin River, Brunswick and Topsham serve as the hub to coastal Route 1, and the rocky shoreline of Harpswell.
