Down East Selects Best Place to Live in Maine!

For those looking for all things Maine, the go-to magazine is Down East. Since 1954, “the goal of Down East has always been to hold a mirror up to Maine — its storied past and lively present — and to celebrate its flinty, independent character and unhurried way of life.”

The folks at Down East recently had an online tournament bracket seeded with 16 of their favorite towns, selected by their editors. Thousands of readers voted in four elimination rounds and selected on a winner-take-all outstanding Maine hometown. No surprise, the idyllic Maine mountain town of Rangeley came out on top. Congratulations Rangeley!

The Ledges on Kennebago
Coming to the market this spring, The Ledges on Kennebago Lake offers 18± acres, 2,000± feet of water frontage, a classic main house and 3 guest houses all updated with modern amenities yet maintaining the rustic design. With crystal clear waters, majestic pines and the incredibly beautiful call of the loons, it’s so easy to succumb to relaxation. Not to mention the best fly fishing east of the Mississippi!


Height of Land

Traveling up Route 17 heading into Rangeley, the Height of Land provides the most breathtaking views of Mooselookmeguntic Lake. Photographers and artists love to visit this awe-inspiring view. In the fall, the foliage is amazing.

Whether at Rangeley, Cupsuptic, Mooselookmeguntic or Kennebago Lake, this special part of Maine is by far deserving of “Best Place to Live in Maine.” With the White Mountains to the west, Saddleback Mountain to the east, and a paradise for the most discriminating fisherman, you will keep coming back… or never leave! We have a few special properties in the Rangeley Lake area coming to the market this spring along with other listings currently available. Please call John Scribner to see if he can find the right one for you.
