Looking for a desirable, bargain-priced property which is permitted and ready to build on Moosehead Lake? You must see this 3.48 acre peninsula with 554 feet of deep water lake frontage.

This lot is partially cleared, permitted and State approved. There are deed covenants in place for value protection. It is one of the few places on Moosehead Lake that is currently on the market where you can build on a peninsula.

The property is located on Burnt Jacket Shores in Beaver Cove, just six miles from Greenville by auto or boat. Greenville, located at the head of Moosehead, is a quiet lakefront community offering nice restaurants, building supply stores, a hospital and airport. The region hosts a ski slope, guide and float plane services, marinas, wildlife tours including moose watching and much more for the four season recreationist.

Moosehead Lake, 40 miles long, 20 miles wide and 250 feet deep is truly the gem of the northern forest. It abuts over a million acres of land where you can pursue your choice of outdoor activities from crashing white water to just gazing at the millions of stars in the clear night sky. You won't be here long before you realize that you are part of a very special place.

This offer won't be available for long and if you have been looking for a special place to build or invest in the Moosehead area we recommend that you call today. Many times in our life we look back and say, "I remember a time when I could have purchased a beautiful place on Moosehead Lake at a bargain price" don't let this be that time.

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.

Burnt Jacket Mountain

Burnt Jacket Mountain from the air

As noted before, the trail to the summit of Burnt Jacket Mountain is open to the public.  This short hike takes one through the dense Maine forest to a rock outcrop with stunning, nearly 360° views of Moosehead Lake.

Writer and photographer Deirdre Flemming of the Portland Press Herald made the relatively easy trek recently to catch the breathtaking views.  You can catch her article of the trip as well as her thoughts regarding this beautiful yet quiet area of Maine.

Burnt Jacket Mountain Trail

Open June 1st to October 31st

The folks at Burnt Jacket have graciously opened the Burnt Jacket Mountain Trail to the public this year. This trail is easily reached from the Burnt Jacket Road. It is about a 7 mile drive from Greenville. Follow the signs to the parking area; from there follow an old woods road to the trail itself.

This is an easy climb to the summit which is about a mile in length. Be sure to sign the book located in the rock cairn at the trail’s terminus. Enjoy the sweeping views of Moosehead Lake from the various vantage points.

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 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.

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.
