Aroostook County is the northernmost region and the largest county in wild, rugged, and deeply beautiful Maine. The state is 90 percent forest, with a coastline that, if stretched out, would reach to California. Bordering the provinces of Quebec and New Brunswick, Canada, the county is larger than the states of Rhode Island and Connecticut combined. Known simply as "The County" or "Crown Life" in this northernmost region, it is a grandiose fusion of old-world charm blended to perfection with contemporary appeal. Enjoy amenities that are every bit present-day, while exploring quaint villages and years-old cultures that make it seem as if you have stepped back in time.
This 27 acre wooded parcel is located in Madawaska, about 4 miles from the St. John River border of New Brunswick, Canada. The parcel is part of a town-approved residential subdivision. It is surveyed and staked, has passed a preliminary soil test for a septic system, has paved public road frontage, and has electricity and telephone. There is a really nice tract of lakefront land. The lake is roughly a mile long and a quarter mile wide, and is relatively shallow, but excellent for canoeing, fishing and duck hunting. There are a lot of moose and black bear in the immediate area due to the proximity to the lake. The taxes and land valuation are extremely low because we have placed this parcel in the Maine Tree Growth Program.
From friendly local folks, rich history, storybook towns, sumptuous restaurants, shopping destinations and breathtaking outdoor amenities, Aroostook County is a peaceful borderland where time passes slower, refreshing evening breezes linger longer and sunsets sizzle for endless stretches. Step back into the way Maine used to be and take a deep breath of fresh pine and balsam-heavy air. It's a place for rejuvenating and reconnecting with life's simple pleasures.
The region is a water utopia, home to more than 7,000 miles of flowing rivers, including the 92-mile Allagash Wilderness Waterway, and more than 2,000 lakes, streams, and ponds.
If water is not on your to-do list, hiking, camping, bird and wildlife watching, and other recreational and sports opportunities abound as you descend upon smaller mountains, endless four-season camping areas and more.
Don't miss out on Aroostook County's 2,300 miles of groomed snowmobile trails and family skiing and snow tubing facilities. In an average season, experience over 100 feet of snow!
