Maine Lake Front Homes for Sale

Kayaking Maine Lake

(Check out the most recently listed lakefront home and land listings in Coastal Maine below.)

Maine is known for its beautiful lakes and ponds. (And don't let the term "pond" fool you - most of these ponds have plenty of room to boat, fish, swim, and to nature watch.) And Coastal Midcoast Maine has many lakefront gems to chose from. 

These lake homes offer a variety of housing options but the popular choice is the Maine Summer "Camp". Camps in any other state might be called a cottage, summer home, or lake house. But here in Maine a camp is a seasonal structure which is often more rustic in style and accommodations. (Don't worry most have running water and flushing toliets!) These camps are used by the owners as a summer escape or a weekend retreat. And it's not uncommon for some families to escape to their camp for the entire summer. You will also find some people purchase lakefront homes in Maine as an investment and rent them on weekly or monthly basis.

Clary Knoll Farm is a magnificent, one-of-a-kind property in MidCoast Maine. This is a true kingdom property with 645+/- acres of gently rolling, carefully managed wooded hills and fields nearly surrounding the crystal clear, 72-acre Three Corner Pond. With approximately two miles of water frontage and your own island, you'll share the pond with a nesting pair of loons, a family of beavers, trout, bass, and an abundance of other wildlife that call this tranquil, deepwater pond home. You'll enjoy having the pond to yourself for your morning swim out to your island and ''swimming rock,'' or casting a line from your dock at dusk, with the peepers and loon calls your only company. A neat row of sugar maples lines the private Knoll Farm Lane, giving way to +/-40 acres of open fields bounded by stone walls and dotted with fruit and chestnut trees. A stone fire pit encircled by granite benches sits at the crest of the knoll looking over the fields and the western fetch of the pond. In the restored converted barn you'll find a purposefully rustic workspace on the first floor, and a meticulously appointed living area on the second floor, all done by Cold Mountain Builders. Recently added Anderson windows and expansive deck round out this thoughtful, simple living space. A conservation easement protects much of the land for future generations, while offering the buyer ample options for further building and/or expansion. A woodlot management plan is in place, and though the forest has been managed to preserve high grade trees and habitat, selective cuts have provided substantial revenue in recent years.
