Sidney is a picturesque small town, located in Kennebec County between Augusta and Waterville. As of the 2000 census, it had a population of 3,514 residents. However, the I-95 has an interchange in Sidney, which provides primary access to both Augusta and Waterville, and therefore makes Sidney one of the fastest growing towns in the state of Maine. It is also only approximately 58 miles northeast of Portland. The town of Sidney is bounded on the east by the Kennebec River and the west by Messalonskee Lake, which covers more than 42 square miles. There is about 15 percent seasonal housing within the town. Messalonskee Lake, also known as Snow Pond, and less commonly as Nine Mile Pond, is a 9 mile long, natural, narrow lake, created from continental collision and glacial scouring. A dam built in the town of Oakland in 1905 increased the size of the lake. Activities on Messalonskee lake include boating, fishing and kayaking. The nearby town of Waterville is home to the "Blistered Fingers Family Bluegrass Music Festival" (June and August,) and the "Franco-American Festival (in September,) and they also offers a series of outdoor concerts during the month of July. Sidney is also just a short drive to the China Lakes region, a 54 square-mile area of rolling, hills, three beautiful lakes, antiquing and sightseeing.

The really cold weather begins arriving around the end of November with January and February generally having the lowest temperatures. Below zero temperatures are possible, but not the norm.
