Rangeley Lakes Region Real Estate

Area Guide to Maine's Lakefront 

Maine's Rangeley Lakes glisten like gems stretched out below 4,120-foot Saddleback Mountain. Six major lakes and hundreds of smaller lakes and ponds lure vacationers for fishing, boating and swimming. The quiet splendor of lakes and mountains serves as a perfect setting for year-round activities. Play golf or tennis. Bring your own boat, canoe, or kayak. Hike numerous trails including the famous Appalachian Trail and enjoy cool lake waters after. Visit craftspeople at work, antique, and browse a variety of other shops. Enjoy cultural events and festivals in all seasons.

Rangeley Lake Waterfront Real Estate
Rangeley Lakes Region Area Guide

For years, the Rangeley Lakes Region has attracted visitors who yearn for a quiet escape from the faster tempos of regular life. Located 4½ hours from Boston, just travelling here can give one a true sense of "getting away from it all". Nestled in the western mountains of Maine and off the beaten path, the Rangeley Lakes Region offers an experience that cannot be found in the more southern or coastal areas of the state.

Rangeley Lake, MaineThe terrain here is different - the hills, valleys, and mountains are more numerous. Lakes and ponds of all sizes are found here and the fishing is still the best in Maine.

Get Away from It All

But perhaps the most impressionable feature of this area is the simple fact that there aren't that many people here and, consequently, fewer of the trappings of a contemporary society that accompany more populated areas. For those who crave peace and solitude, who revel in the majesty of Nature, and who long for a home or a getaway situated somewhere less touched by civilization, the Rangeley Lakes Region is that place.

The Rangeley Lakes include a half dozen large lakes and many smaller lakes and ponds. Twenty-five miles to the northeast is Flagstaff lake.

The two towns at the center of this region are Rangeley and, five miles to its west, Oquossoc. Together, their year round residents barely number 1000. There are, however, ample places to stay in the area and no end to the things you can do all year long - provided, of course, you enjoy outdoor recreation.

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.
