This gorgeous 16 acre woodland tract includes approximately 1300 feet of water frontage on crystal-clear Moosehead Lake. This prime property offers expansive views of the wide-open lake dotted with islands and a mountain backdrop. It is densely forested with mature spruce, hemlock and hardwoods. The bold, deep-water shoreline runs to a slight point that guards a protected cove which is also sheltered by a nearby island.

This unique property is accessed by an improved gravel road about 3 miles distant from a public, black topped road. Utility options include power and phone. There are suitable soils for septic disposal. Fresh water can be supplied from the lake or drilled wells. With the generous amount of frontage, there are several suitable building sites.

Moosehead Lake is 40 miles long, 20 miles wide and 285 feet deep. It is the crown jewel of the North Maine Woods with its numerous recreational opportunities beckoning the outdoorsman. The area is known for its mountains, waterways and vast woodlands. Open and unfettered access is provided by generous landowners, State of Maine public lands and thousands of acres of conservation lands.

The property is only six miles north of Greenville located on the south shore of Moosehead Lake. The village is a gem waiting to be discovered by folks wanting to paticipate in an idyllic lifestyle. It's just a few minutes by auto or boat to several eateries including two four star restaurants, eclectic shops and more. Of course there are traditional grocery and hardware stores in-town for basic needs. Greenville also has a fully-staffed hospital for emergencies. The Moosehead region has provided an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life since the mid 1800s.

It's easy to get here, Bangor International Airport is 70 miles away and Greenville has a municipal airport offering charter air service and three seaplane ports. Portland Jetport is about a three hour drive.

When you arrive, you are in Thoreau's place, where time stands still.

These Ducks Like Burnt Jacket

Ducks at the Chalet

Ducks at the Chalet

The other day, I was inspecting the trails on the various lots of Burnt Jacket Shores at Moosehead Lake. I decided to take a stroll on the path from the Chalet on Lot S-10 to the dock. Near where the trail first gets close to the lake, I spotted two ducks resting on a nearby rock not more than 50 feet away. The two hooded mergansers did not seem too concerned and just sat there. One even closed its eyes as if it were dozing.

I continued to the dock and the gorgeous water views. There were a few boats zipping about. The breeze was refreshing on that hot, humid afternoon. It actually seemed a bit cooler than at the chalet.

After a few minutes, I strolled back up the trail. The two ducks were still there, lazing about in the sun on the same rock; unfazed by my presence. As I made my way back to the pickup, I could not help wonder that such an idyllic spot on Moosehead Lake is waiting for some lucky person.

This Deer Likes Burnt Jacket

Buck at Burnt Jacket

A local camp owner on Burnt Jacket Peninsula took advantage of a rare opportunity to snap a couple of pictures of this buck enjoying the clover.  Now I realize there must be a million pictures of deer on the internet.  What makes these so unique is that the photographer was able to capture clear, readable images of the Burnt Jacket signs in the foreground; a real estate broker’s dream.

The kind land owner shared these with me; for which I am extremely grateful.  We have been watching this particular deer over the course of the summer as his antlers started out as spikes and are continually growing to at least 6 points.  He seems to enjoy the lush grass growing in the common areas and roadsides.  Unfortunately, he would make himself visible when we had no camera—so thanks again most gracious camp owner.

If you are looking for waterfront property on Moosehead Lake, kindly visit the Burnt Jacket website.  If this buck likes it here, perhaps you will too.  Contact us for a private showing.
