* Since 2004 - VOTED #1 Best Place to Stay in the Area!!
This four-season house/camp, in the Appalachian mountains of Maine, is situated on pristine, three-mile long, mile-wide, quiet, and well-stalked Lake Hebron, just 15 miles south of Moosehead Lake, on a full private acre++ of pines, birches, maples and grassy land. The Appalachian Trail passes right past our front door, and we are conveniently just close enough to the tiny village center. A tank of gas from Boston, and about a four-hour picturesque, interesting drive northbound, and you're there, where much of the traffic, noise, and everyday stress will be left behind with every mile.
Bob was brought up in Maine, Rob was brought up in Massachusetts...Both New Englander's all our lives, we decided to retire in Monson, Maine thirteen years ago...but circumstances haven't allowed it yet...though we currently reside on the coast of MA...hopefully not for long! The picture of us was taken at the end of our family vacation right here in Monson. Looking pretty wiped out!
“We had originally planned to buy a small one or two room camp. But one day we sort of fell into this opportunity to buy this home. We did not think we had a chance, but six months later it was still for sale, we put in the offer and the rest is history. We also have family in the area that brought us up this way, and now, many friends. We wouldn't want to retire anywhere else...even though we have driven all over the USA, we still loved New England and could not wait to get back to our home.”
Monson is centrally located to everything! We are close to Greenville Moosehead Lake and many other lakes, Squaw Mountain, (a.k.a. Big Moose) Lily Bay, Rockwood, the Allagash, Kokajo, Katadin, Kineo, Baxter State Park, the Forks, Big/Little Wilson, Jackman, Dover-Foxcroft, an hour+ to Bangor, or to Skowhegan, Millinocket, 45 minutes from Newport; Jackman, and so many other favorite places!
Winter: We rent year round, because there is so much to do - year round! Our dooryard takes you right to the lake and trails via your snowmobile; snow-shoeing, X-country skiing, ice-fishing, nearby dog-sledding, Squaw Mountain a.k.a. Moose Mtn., has re-opened their slopes!
Spring: Great spring fishing! Spring is the best time of year to fish the hundreds of local lakes and ponds. Antler hunting! Moose watching too...take your 4X4 and your camera. Explore the countless logging roads, and you might even see some baby moosies or fawns.
Summer: Swimming, horse-back riding, moose safaris, airplane rides, golf, Kineo cruise, Katadin steamship, camping, hiking (anytime), fishing ...oh, there is an endless amount of things to do in the summer! Certainly you will find more to do than we could ever imagine!
Fall: Variety of hunting excursions, a summers end 'Fly-In', where you will experience pontoon planes flying in to Greenville from all over the country, helicopter rides, tent fairs, lots of yard sales, leaf-peeping, and plenty of other activities all near Monson.
Of course, if you don't feel like doing much of anything, our quiet house is a most comforting place just relax and

“Truly this is God's Country (as the sign says). The benefits of living up this way are PEACE and QUIET! Less traffic and hustle-bustle. Life can go slow here and it's OK. It's ok to be backwoods. It's ok to have less...it's a choice. Less false-guilt! Other benefits include all the amenities of why anyone would want to vacation here...the sheer beauty of the area and the wildlife is wonderful in of itself.”
