Welcome to Winthrop, Maine

squire Welcome to Winthrop! This amazing community has much to offer, whether you live, work or play here. The 11 water bodies in the Town of Winthrop lure folks from far and wide to boat, swim, ski, paddle and fish. The village is charming and its local shops quaint. Mount Pisgah yields grand views of Maine and its mountain ranges. Bailey Library is second to none. Winthrop schools (Rambler Pride!) excel at prepping young people for the future. And a team of dedicated public servants provides a full complement of essential and high-quality services. But spend any time here at all, and the people will impress you most. They’re warm, welcoming and happy to reside in one of the nicest spots anywhere. Whether you’re establishing roots, launching an enterprise or simply enjoying a respite from the workaday world, we hope you’ll fully embrace all that Winthrop has to offer. We’re sure you’ll love this little burg as we do.
