I have friends from all over the country who find a way to spend time in Maine – here in the Maine Lakes Region and all over our great state, from the mountains to our vast coastline – and why is that?  Why consistently spend time here?

Those of us who live here – as is human nature – often literally tend to not “see” the forest for the trees. “Oh my gosh” moments become commonplace. For example:

Westbound on 302 when you hit the Naples Causeway and Mount Washington is right there behind Long Lake..

Continuing westward just past Beaver Pond, Shawnee Peak appears in the reflection of Moose Pond and looms upward beyond the far shore..

I can still recall my first drive up Route 27 around one of the most famous “Oh My Gosh” corners here in Maine, seeing Sugarloaf Mountain for the first time – for me, back in the 1970’s!

Drive up the State Park Road at the southern-most tip of Camden Hills State Park to the top of Mt. Battie, and you look down on Camden Harbor..

The first time you drive to the pinnacle of Route 85, and at the Raymond Elementary School looking westward you see before you the entire Maine Lakes Region to the White Mountains that on a clear day, seem so close..

The vast rolling potato fields southward from Caribou through Presque Isle to Houlton, to the views of Mount Kathadin through Island Falls, Sherman, Benedicta, and the scenic lookout overlooking Salmon Stream Lake..

The view of Casco Bay from the Eastern and Western Promenades in Portland.. This is why many visit, and why so many of us choose to live here.

Many of us pass these and other amazing places on a daily basis, not always “seeing them” for the special, unique-on-earth majestic places that they really are.

We here at Anne Plummer & Associates understand, appreciate, and believe in the power of “this place” that we are blessed to call home. Whether you are looking to upgrade, downsize, or you are seeking that “just right” special spot to enjoy delightful, year-round, four season activities and down-time periodically: Give us a call today! Soon you, too, will be saying “Oh My Gosh” more often!
