Come Explore Life in Sidney

Sidney is the perfect Central Maine getaway. The area is filled with thick forests, local farms, and unspoiled waterfront vistas, yet it's only 15 minutes north of Augusta along I-95. You can truly enjoy the best of both worlds in Sidney!

Much of the area's appeal is due to the landscape. Local farms sell all kinds of goodies ranging from pure maple syrup to farm-fresh eggs, Messalonskee Lake is a hot spot for fishing, and the Kennebec River is a rafter's paradise. You'll find an abundance of waterfront homes and properties with acreage, too.
