Only twenty-two miles northwest of Portland and 2 1/2 hours from Boston, you'll find a two-for-one special for lakefront property buyers in the Sebago Lakes Region. Panther Pond in Raymond and Crescent Lake in Raymond and Casco are connected by the meandering and navigable Tenney River.

mr lakefront: 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.
If you're borrowing to buy, be careful that you … (0 comments)

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.
