(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.
There are also many year-round living homes with more modern amenities. Lakefront living in Maine is truly something special.
