New Haven is a place where time stands still. Where the raw beauty of this coastal fishing town is preserved in the weathered wood and old brick structures that dot this seaside community. Located on Saco Bay just twenty-five miles Southwest of Portland, New Haven boasts a beautiful waterfront with plenty of shopping, dining and activities for all ages. Charming ivy-covered cottages and rustic seaside bungalows provide a perfect place to start a family and the unhindered access to the Bay provide picturesque sunset views. And stretching out toward the horizon, the historical Siren’s Keep Lighthouse stands sentry over the town, where its everlasting light acts as a guide to welcome you home.
NEW HAVEN, MAINE
YOUR GUIDE HOME
Nestled along Maine’s beautiful rocky coast lies a charming fishing town steeped in history. Once here, take a walk along the cobblestoned streets and you’ll find yourself immersed in legend and lore- from pirates to mermaids and even buried treasure. Stop and feast upon exquisite cuisine featuring locally caught seafood or shop along the historic waterfront at one of our charming boutiques. And when you’re done for the day, relax and watch the beautiful sunset light up the Bay. No matter your reason for being here, whether as a tourist or looking to start a family, New Haven is sure to grow to be everything you need.
Though we continue to grow, we are always committed to maintaining that welcoming, small town feel and are actively seeking ways to enhance your New Haven experience. In fact, many attractions are our residents very own requests so we hope you love them as much as we do!
Spread out on several acres of land, Stonybrook Farms honors the tradition of the first settlers of New Haven by growing crops native to the area.

Featuring rugged trails, farm plots, camping and a large selection of horse stalls, there is always something to do at this year-round venture.
In the heart of downtown you’ll find the Riverwalk where lighted trees and weathered cobblestone walkways guide you along this historical stretch of New Haven. Here, you’ll find that plenty of dining and shopping await. And at night, this waterfront district comes alive with activity and romantic lights, making this location a perfect evening out.
A membership at our exclusive Yacht Club on Edgewater offers visitors an exhilarating experience. Featuring dining service, wine tasting, a playable tennis court, heated pool, sauna and more- you’ll bask in the life of luxury. We also offer oversized boat slips for members looking to dock their sailboat or yacht and event packages if you’re looking to plan that special day.
The neighborhood of Canton is a favorite hang out for many looking to hide criminal activity, or even for those without the means or care to live within the renovated parts of New Haven. Finally having been reopened since its closure in 1969, this area is ripe with all the accoutrements you’d expect from an under the bridge sort of place. With rundown housing, homeless camps and trash pandas, there is a surprise around every corner.

We also have our Community Center, with indoor pool, game room and a youth center.
We have big plans in place to further enhance the New Haven experience and are thrilled to be able to take the input of our residents and work them into the continued growth of our community.

And of course, if you have a suggestion or request, we’d love to hear it!
