Bethel is where my Mum was born and raised so I guess I'm a bit partial to what a nice place it is. Good luck, check out a few places and if it makes your list,.. Milo, a very small town (where I am living now) is "A Friendly Town"

Farmington sounds right up your alley. Small college town in the mountains and not too far from Lewiston/Auburn.

Bethel, Fryeburg, Farmington would all be good choices, and Farmington has the college as an added benefit.

If you want seclusion, but not too far from Farmington, take a look at Lexington.

Bethel,as other members have mentioned has a good mix of what you're looking for. In the immediate area,are low taxed Unorganized townships with close proximity to Bethel: Mason Township,Albany Township,Milton Township.
Sunday River Ski Area and Grafton State Park are wonderful outdoor experiences and in the surrounding areas,we have Weld State Park,Mt.Abrams Ski area along with Black Mt.
A new arts center in Rumford has opened.

There is a town we drive through on the way to Goose Rocks from Vermont.....Cornish? It's between Fryeburg & Kennebunk. It seems pretty artsy, and is fairly close to the coast and the mountains.
