We've decided to focus on 25 of the biggest names, as well as what part of Maine they call a little piece of home. Some celebs prefer the ocean views of Downeast Maine, while others are all about the mountains. You'll find that private islands have their appeal to the celebrity as well.

Among those in this list are more recognizable names like Martha Stewart and John Travolta, to some you may not have known like The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams or Spider-Man's Green Goblin actor Willem Dafoe.
