Moosehead Lakes Real Estate

Area Guide to Maine's Lakefront 

Located at the doorstep of Maine's great north woods, Moosehead Lake is steeped in history.  From Henry David Thoreau's explorations with Indian guides in the mid-1800's to a century ago when fashionable visitors arrived by train and summered at the grand hotels on the shores of Moosehead Lake's clear blue waters to escape the heat, noise and crowds of city life, Moosehead Lake has lured those seeking the beauty and serenity of this pristine wilderness.

Moosehead Lake Waterfront Real Estate
Moosehead Lake Region Area Guide

The Moosehead Region of Maine is dominated by the enormity of Moosehead Lake - the largest lake east of the Mississippi contained in one state. Moosehead Lake stretches 40 miles from south to north, is 20 miles wide, and has a surface area of over 75,000 acres. Surrounded by a vast, forested wilderness, this area is largely populated by moose, not people - and that demographic is probably its primary attraction.

Moosehead Lake, Maine Lakefront PropertyA century ago Moosehead Lake was a summer playground for wealthy families from Boston and New York who would spend the summer here escaping the heat and pollution of the city. The grand hotels where they stayed and the trains that brought them here have gone the way of log drives and buggy whips, but the reason why they came remains.

This area has always been a siren call to those who crave the beauty and serenity of water and wilderness in a pristine, natural setting. Today nature lovers and eco-tourists frequent the area, mixing in with fishermen, snowmobilers, and mountain bikers, all of whom are turning this area into a four season destination.

Relax On One of Many Smaller Lakes 

Most who come here will pass through the town of Greenville, a place to relax, catch your breath, and take on supplies before heading out to such destinations as Rockwood and Mt. Kineo, Kokadjo, Seboomook, Brassua Lake, Lobster Lake, and closer by, Upper and Lower Wilson Pond. Greenville has plenty of fine accommodations from rustic cabins to well-appointed B&Bs and Inns as well as many interesting places to shop or eat.

Mt. Katahdin Nearby

You can also take the boatride of a lifetime on the steamship Katahdin, a vessel that has plied her trade for over a century on the waters of Moosehead Lake. Greenville - it's the quintessential jumping off point, is the last bit of civilization before experiencing the majesty and remoteness of the farther reaches of Moosehead and the Great North Woods of Maine.


Additional Maine Lake Resources

Learn About Local Lakes

Lakes of Maine (previously known as PEARL) is supported through a collaboration of research, management, and citizen-volunteer organizations, and is a superb example of cooperative stewardship. It is a searchable data base for Maine lakes initially created in collaboration between the University of Maine and the Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). You can access just about anything there is to know about any given lake or watershed.  Size, depth, location, fish species, plants are all available. The Knowledge Base includes the most current articles and scientific data.

This resource will not only provide environmental information, but will be a place where you can search specific lakes by name and their exact location using interactive maps and tools.
