Maine Lakes and Ponds

Looking for an affordable waterfront vacation property or a second home spot in the northeastern United States, Maine is your best buy for both purchase price and lower development costs. In some areas of Maine it is currently possible to purchase a lakefront lot for as little as $30,000. Some fine riverfront land can be had for as little as $20,000. Salt water property along the northern Maine coast on bays and tidal rivers can be purchased under $40,000. Bold ocean front is cheap when compared to the other New England states. In Maine's northern interior it is not uncommon to find a 40 acre backwoods lot with a little stream flowing through it for under $35,000. Some of the land for sale is offered with reasonable owner financing.

Compared to other New England states, rural areas of Maine have less permitting and the associated hassle and fees. The unorganized territories of Maine have very low property tax rates and a standardized low cost building permit application process. The small organized municipalities are not subject to code requirements found in the larger towns and cities. Building what you want, the way you want to, is still possible here.

Most of the rural areas have a major service town or small city to provide culture, shopping and needed services. Areas near Augusta, Waterville, Newport, Bangor, Lincoln, Millinocket, and Houlton are all easily accessible along I-95. Drive a short distance out of these service towns, and you will begin to find waterfront land prices mentioned above.

Along the coast of Maine and Route 1, service towns like Rockland, Rockport, Camden, Belfast, Bucksport, Blue Hill, Ellsworth, Machias, Lubec and Eastport have many nearby rural communities with clean and scenic rivers, lakes, ponds and the most undeveloped coastline you can find in the northeast.

The Narrows on Folsom Pond has seven available waterfront parcels ranging in size from 1.8 acres to over 5 acres. Prices starting at $29,900 The survey map linked here shows the configuration of the lots, those that are still available and the prices. MAP OF THE NARROWS

Folsom Pond is a semi-remote pond hidden in the woods in Lincoln. The pond is connected to Crooked Pond by a navigable "Narrows" the division of land gets its name from. These two ponds are not lined with sandy beaches, this is not the perfect place to swim. There are other lakes and ponds in Lincoln that are ideal for swimming with a couple of sand beaches nearby. Folsom and Crooked are the perfect ponds for kayaking, canoeing or small power boating in a peaceful environment usually free of large boats and jet skis. The rocky and water lily covered shorelines are the perfect habitat for waterfowl, smallmouth and largemouth bass. Wild blueberries line the shorelines. There are some cabins on the pond but most are not visible when on the pond.
