Yes, Maine’s license plate says it all in this one compound word.  In fact, Maine has the highest proportion of vacation homes according to the 2010 census.  With its rockbound coast, sapphire lakes and verdant mountains; the Pine Tree State has much to offer.

Other less obvious attributes than its stunning scenery make Maine a desired place for people seeking second homes.  The pleasant days and crisp, cool nights of summer offer a welcome relief from the heat and humidity that most of the nation experiences.

Maine is a comfortable drive from the major metropolitan areas along the East Coast.  It is said that nearly 25% of the nation’s population is a 10 hour or less drive to the easternmost state.

Maine is considered one of the safest states in the union; especially when one considers violent crime.

 Many of the vacation homes are found on the nearly 3500 miles of coastline.  When compared to the coast, much of the inland areas are relatively undiscovered.  Large lakes such as Sebago and Rangeley have a traditional following. 

 Maine’s largest lake, Moosehead, was once a popular destination for city dwellers escaping the heat and associated diseases in the late 1800’s to mid 1900’s.  Much of its 232 miles of shoreline is now protected, yet there is a new lakeside development promising a unique opportunity for land ownership on the “Jewel of Maine’s Northwoods”.

This Saturday, August 13, 2011, there will be another open house from 10AM to 2PM. 

If you are looking for lakefront property on Maine’s largest lake in one of the most pritine areas on the East Coast, make it a point to stop by our open house and check out these beautiful properties for sale.  Parcels are large (1.4 to 4+ acres) with generous waterfront (229′ to 1800′+) separated by ample green space.  There are several common areas and the whole development is connected by a trail system making it pedestrian friendly.

Check out our website for more information and directions to the newest development on Moosehead Lake.

Looking forward to seeing some new faces!


Daylight Savings Time, longer days and warm temperatures can only mean one thing—spring is just around the corner.  Even though there is plenty of snow in the Moosehead Region, Winter’s icy grip is loosening.  It will not be long before we begin our Open House campaign.

Kindly visit our website for schedule or feel free to call us at 207-947-7957.


Escape to Moosehead Lake where the days are cool and the nights are crisp.  While you are here check out the newly approved lakefront community—BURNT JACKET SHORES AT MOOSEHEAD LAKE in sleepy Beaver Cove, Maine.  We have available a limited number of oversized building sites with generous frontage on Maine’s largest lake.

Stop by the open house gazebo and say hi.  An agent will be on-site 10 AM to 2 PM, Saturdays and Sundays for the hot months of July and August.  You can also make an appointment for a personal showing at a time that is more convenient for you.

We are easy to find.  Take the Lily Bay Road out of Greenville for about 6 miles.  Take a left onto the Burnt Jacket Road just over the Greenville town line.  Follow the signs for approximately one mile to the open house site on the right.

We have brochures and maps.  All properties have trails to the lake, so bring along a good pair of walking shoes should you want a guided tour.

Got some time coming to you?  Take a ride to Moosehead and cool off naturally.  Hope to see you this summer.


The newly approved Burnt Jacket Shores at Moosehead Lake experienced its first ice out on Maine’s biggest lake which was on tax day, 2010.  This was the second earliest since records have been kept dating back to the 1800’s.  It missed tying the record by one day.

This early ice out on Moosehead coincides with the early spring that we have been experiencing in Maine.  Winter really lost its grip here in early February and the weather has been the nicest in years.

Because of this, Wilderness Realty is excited about the long season and beautiful weather to promote this unique lakeside community.  We are in the preliminary stages of planning an open house or two.  The roads and trails are all constructed, the snow is melted and brokers are now taking appointments for those who plan to be in the area or may have scheduling conflicts with the open house dates.

In addition, if you would like to be on our mailing list and receive special notices, kindly contact us by phone (207-947-7957) or e-mail (

This should give folks plenty of time to plan a visit.  Hope to see you this year!
