East-Machias is a small town located near the East Machias River and the Atlantic Ocean in beautiful, secluded Washington County, Maine. The area also includes the sister communities of Machias, Machiasport, Bucks Harbor and Cutler. East Machias is an area with great historical significance where during the colonial era; the area was a strategic location for lumber and trade. The first naval battle of the American Revolution was fought at Machias and a monument to that battle is the Burnham Tavern where a wounded British officer was taken for medical treatment. Washington County is 85 percent woodlands with an abundance of hiking trails, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, fishing, and hunting and is a birdwatcher's paradise. In wintertime, downhill skiing, sledding and cross-country skiing are all available. No trip to Washington County would be complete without a visit to the beaches and rocky cliffs along the shoreline where the tides range from eighteen to twenty-eight feet. The town of Cutler has one of the most picturesque harbors with an island lighthouse at its' mouth. A drive to the opposite side of the harbor provides stunning views of the village, harbor and fishing boats, and provides access to Western Head Hiking Trail and the Bold Coast Hiking Trail. This is also blueberry country and the town of Machias is home to the annual Blueberry Festival each August.

East Machias Weather & Climate

The easternmost area of the United States is Washington County, Maine, which is also one of the most remote areas of Maine. There are four seasons, although summers are very mild and air conditioning is not necessary in this part of the state. The greatest rise and fall of tides on the shores of the continental U.S. occur along the Washington County coastline, and it is the first place in the country to see the sunrise each day. The Maine coastal climate receives lots of precipitation - in every form. Ice storms are regular in winter and early spring, and rain is frequent in every month of the year. The average annual rainfall is 48 inches and the average annual snowfall is 61 inches. Snow does not stay on the ground as long along the coast as it does further inland and in northern Maine. There are plenty of clear, sunny days in summer and fall, followed by crisp, cold nights. Fog is common during June, July and August.
