The town of Medway is an hour north of Bangor – Maine’s third largest city, with a metro population of over 100,000 people. Medway is a picturesque community just 40 minutes from the entrance to Baxter State Park – a popular resource with 200,000 of protected land that includes Maine's tallest peak, mile-high Mt. Katahdin. This picturesque region is known for its many recreational opportunities - with boating, snowmobiling, camping, hiking and climbing, hunting and fishing – and many more ways to enjoy Maine's acclaimed four-season environment. In the Pine Tree State, you will enjoy warm, lush summers perfect for water sports, crisp autumn nights prompting the trees to burst with color, frosty winters ripe for outdoor sports, and fragrant springs, as new flowers climb through the melting snow.
Choose from a range of affordable homes in safe, friendly neighborhoods – or in a country setting! Acreage is available in Maine, so you could have 10, 20, or more acres all your own. Explore options for lakefront living too, where you can go boating in your own backyard! Due to the outpatient nature of this work, you can live in a community close to the practice, or in one of several nearby towns, or you could commute from Bangor.
Bangor offers an international airport, shopping malls and theatres, dozens of restaurants, an excellent children’s museum, a symphony orchestra, a casino, summer concerts and annual music festivals on the riverfront, and much more. Between Medway and Bangor is the city of Orono, home to the primary campus of the University of Maine, with over 10,000 full time students – and an abundance of cultural and collegiate sporting events including NCAA Division I football, soccer, basketball, baseball and hockey. Bangor is just an hour from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, voted “America’s Favorite Place,” where 50,000 scenic acres of beautiful mountains, trails and coastline attract more than 3 million visitors annually. Acadia offers a wonderland of climbing, hiking and biking, kayaking and sailing, horseback riding, and much more.
