Retiring in Maine???

Jump to last reply

My partner and I live in Florida, and enjoy fantasizing about all the different places we can retire to in about ten years. Maine has been on our minds lately. We love Portland, and I had a great impression of the Rangely Lakes area when I was there a few years ago.

What are the pros and cons? I remember reading that taxes are high in Maine, but would this effect retirees much? Also, as Floridians, are we underestimating the misery of a Maine winter? We both love seasons (are tired of the monotonous Florida sun) and figure that, if we don't have to get up in the a.m. to get to work, that snow and bitter cold couldn't be too terrible. Right or wrong? Thanks for any advice!
