Area Description The community of Crystal, ME is in Aroostook County between the towns of Island Falls to the east, and Patten to the west.  The area is predominately working forest and farmland.  Crystal is a small community of 269 residents.  The town of Patten is the location to find a grocer, hardware store, and other small businesses including healthcare.  The community of Houlton to the north is where more shopping, dining and healthcare can be obtained.  This area is quiet, and residents have a close connection to the forests and farmland.  They work in and upon these areas, and when the work is done this is also where they play.  Numerous streams, ponds and lakes are close by to try your hand at catching native brook trout, landlocked salmon, or smallmouth bass.  The dense forest and field edges are where you may catch sightings of moose, bear, and white tail deer.  Ruffed grouse, snowshoe hares and other forest animals are found here.  On a recent winter visit to the property, fresh tracks of fisher, ermine and river otter were found in the fresh snow around the property.  Frequent sightings of eagles and osprey soaring overhead are common. ATV and snowmobile enthusiasts can explore the vast trail system through the millions of acres of northern Maine forest.  Hikers have nearby access to the Appalachian Trail that passes by the area in nearby Baxter State Park.  Mount Katahdin, Maine’s tallest mountain, is viewed as you enter the town of Patten.  Let the southern Aroostook County community of Crystal be your next home and experience “Maine, the way life should be.” Recreational Data Outdoor recreation of all types can be found on and around the property.  Several miles of live water can be accessed directly from the property.  Canoeing, kayaking and trout fishing can be enjoyed from April thru September.  Hiking, ATV riding, and many types of hunting are available here too.  The woodlands surrounding the property are a drainage area for the Katahdin Valley.  The woodlands hold a lot of water, which provides great habitat for moose, deer, bear, and all manner of small game.  This region has produced many of Maine’s largest trophy animals that have been harvested over the years.  During the winter months, the consistent snowfall of the area beckons snowmobile enthusiasts to the area to enjoy some of the best riding found in Maine. Water Features The over 7200 feet of frontage along Crystal Brook that abuts the property flows into Fish Stream.  Mainer’s are known for their ability to name the natural features of the state.  What could be a more accurate name for a place to go catch some trophy trout than Fish Stream?  It is rumored that 20” brook trout have been pulled from the crystal-clear pools that are found along the stretch of Crystal Brook that directly abuts the property and flows into Fish Stream.  Beaver, otter, mink as well as many species of migratory waterfowl are frequent visitors to the property. Land Features The 166+- acres of land that comprise the acreage being sold, is bounded on one side by Lyman Brook and Crystal Stream.  The other boundaries are relatively well marked with painted lines.  The abutting properties are large timber holdings, with very few interior roads.  This provides a great deal of privacy.  Access to the property is along a 1.5-mile-long ROW road that dead ends at the compound.  Two gates can be secured to further limit access if you so desire.  The forest is made up of predominantly mixed wood stands.  The primary merchantable stems that were observed on a recent hike through the tract were aspen of about 30-40 years old.  The working forest surrounding the property provide miles of unbroken woodland that is home to moose, deer, and ruffed grouse.

Area Description The property is located in an unorganized township just outside of the town of Millinocket.  The township is called T4 Indian Purchase.  The area is a vast working forest with rolling hills, steep ridges, small streams and ponds and lots of lakes.  The Appalachian Trail can be accessed just 5 miles from the property in a region known as the 100 Mile Wilderness.  This area is a rugged and wild section of the Appalachian trail that challenges hikers of all ages.  Although there are logging roads that go beyond the camp, the roads are normally gated with no vehicle access.  This is a very beautiful and remote part of Maine, yet you can be in Millinocket on a supply run in about 30 minutes. Recreational Data This area is a 4-season recreational destination.  Hunting, fishing, canoeing, hiking and snowmobiling are all enjoyed by residents and visitors to the area.  The access road to the property is a groomed snowmobile trail in the winter.  Fishing opportunities directly from the property include bass, perch, salmon and trout.  There is nearly 5000 acres of lakes that can be accessed directly from the cottage.  Turkey Tail and Middle Jo-Mary lakes flow into Upper and Lower Jo-Mary.  These waters provide fantastic fishing opportunities during both the open and hard water seasons.  The ridges, valleys and vast stretches of forested land are home to all of Maine’s game animals.  Moose, deer, ruffed grouse, snow shoe hare and more are found here. Water Features Turkey Tail and Middle Jo-Mary lakes together are 1143 acres of freshwater.  Passing through into Upper and Lower Jo-Mary lakes adds an additional 3700 acres of water to explore just in that chain.  With a canoe or kayak the adventurous individual can gain access to the Pemadumcook chain of lakes near White Horse Landing which is a historical site filled with history of Maine’s log driving past.  Pemadumcook Lake is connected to Ambajejus Lake as well as North and South Twin lakes.  This is over 23000 acres of cold-water fishery that can be accessed from the property.   With depths of over 100 feet, these waters are home to salmon, trout, togue and more. Land Features The peninsula lot rises above the lake shore approximately 20 feet.  Jutting out into the lake with its elevated location, there is a nearly constant breeze that keeps you cool during the summer and carries the mournful cry of the loon to your ears as you sit by the crackling campfire gazing into the star filled skies of the Katahdin region.  The land around the Jo-Mary and Pemadumcook chain of lakes varies from steep ridge lines to deep valleys with crystal clear streams that flow into and out of the chain of lakes.  Vast stretches of working forest with pine, spruce, maple and more surround the lakes.  Mount Katahdin is prominent in your view from the property as well as the much of the surrounding area.  Dozens of smaller trout filled ponds await you if you are willing to hike your way to them.  Native Brook trout of bragging size are waiting for you.
