Not from Maine? Auburn is situated in the middle of one of Maine's most beautiful lakes and mountains region. The pristine bodies of water and mountains offer unlimited recreational opportunities, providing an essential work/life balance in our own backyard. Auburn is an equally short distance to the ocean, Portland and the White Mountains of NH. We believe we are worth taking a closer look! “Maine-The way Life Should Be”.
Auburn is an up and coming community that closely works with the sister town of Lewiston. Once a mill town for textiles, the cities have been very successful at rebuilding and rebranding the areas. Many bedroom type towns surround Auburn and Lewiston making it very easy to find affordable and beautiful housing as well as school systems that are excellent for raising families.
