maine lakefront real estate: Maine Lakefront Property Buyers Need to Keep an Eye on Interest Rates - 09/24/09 06:10 AM
If you're a prospective buyer of Maine lakefront property and you have cash, you can focus entirely on the lakefront real estate market alone to determine when you think it's time to get into the market.
However, if you need to employ the use of some financing to purchase your lakefront vacation home, you not only have to watch the ups and downs of the real estate market, but of the mortgage interest market as well. Interest rates, as you know, go up and down just like the prices of lakefront property.

What better vacation activity is there on a hot summer day in Maine than to leave the confines of your camp or cabin, stop by your local ice cream stand, buy your favorite flavor, then take a stroll, cone in hand, along side one of our great area lakes or ponds?
On the sweltering summer days of my childhood, my friends and I gravitated toward ice cream treats whenever our moms would let us. Listening for the jingle of the Good Humor truck is one of our quintessential memories of those days gone by.

maine lakefront real estate: Bridgton Highlands Country Club a Favorite of Highland Lake Lovers - 07/13/09 12:23 PM
Residents of Highland Lake in Bridgton know a good thing when they see it - and when it comes to golf they only need to look the short distance up to "the Highlands". Need to slow down and enjoy some great golfing in northern New England? Bridgton Highlands Country Club in western Maine is tops.
Bridgton Highlands is well-groomed, interesting and challenging. And the view from the first hole is spectacular: Shawnee Peak Ski Area at Pleasant Mountain, Mt. Kearsarge North, Mount Washington and the much of the Presidential Range.
Designed by A. W. Tillinghast in 1925, Bridgton Highlands was a … (0 comments)

maine lakefront real estate: Hiking Up Mt. Ti'rem and Hawk Mountain in Waterford, Maine - 07/12/09 12:45 PM
If you enjoy the view of either Mt. Ti'rem or Hawk Mountain from your lakefront property, you might also enjoy the view of Keoka Lake, Bear Pond, Little Moose Pond and Long Lake from their summits. On a clear day, you can even see Sebago Lake in the distance.
Neither of these two hikes in western Maine is difficult nor takes long. I find I often enjoy hiking both on the same day.
I usually start at Mt. Ti'rem in Waterford. The trailhead for the Daniel Brown Trail, which was named in honor of a prominent citizen of the 1800s, is … (0 comments)

Before you begin your day on Sebago Lake, Panther Pond, Highland Lake or any one of the numerous lakes and ponds in the western Maine Mountains and Lakes Region you might want to visit one of the farmers' markets sprinkled throughout the area.
Farmers' markets in our neck of the woods are vibrant with color, lively chatter and friendly faces. They promote healthy living and give us a place to purchase locally produced foods and goods.
