About DownEast Maine

If you are looking for a lakefront property that is “far from the maddening crowd”, then consider the Maine’s DownEast region, which encompasses the easternmost portion of the state, roughly from the Penobscot River to the Canadian border, including rural Hancock County and Washington County.

The term “DownEast” was traditionally the direction sailing ships traveled from New York and Boston, downwind and to the east.

Popular destinations in this region include Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, Ellsworth, Castine, Blue Hill and Lubec.

Tucked amid the bold ocean cliffs and the inland granite-topped peaks are many wonderful clear ponds and lakes, from very small ones to the so-called “great” ponds like 14,000 acre West Grand Lake — one of Maine’s premier salmon lakes.

The lakefront homes and camps in this area not only enjoy great boating and fishing, but are close to the fun and recreation of the DownEast coast.

One of the jewels of DownEast Maine is Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island — one of the most visited national parks in the United States. This park not only offers the scenic beauty of its rocky beaches, Cadillac Mountain (the highest in the east), amazing wildlife, miles of hiking and carriage trails — but also 26 pristine lakes and ponds.

By owning a Maine lakefront property “DownEast”, away from the crowd, you can also enjoy this area’s rich nautical history, picturesque towns and villages, dining on fresh lobster and wild blueberry delights, scenic lighthouses and diverse recreational adventures from snowmobiling to canoeing.
