Property description

7 private acres on Meddybemps Lake, Alexander, Maine backed by 300+ acres of conservation land. Property has its own sandy beach extending far into the lake (one of few natural freshwater beaches in Maine). Year round residence built in 2003 has right to use adjacent 300+ acres of conservation land private to neighborhood. Kayaks equipped for four paddlers (one double and two singles). Home has two upstairs bedrooms with double beds with shared full bath and downstairs bedroom with kingsize bed and private bath. Eat-in screened sunporch. Gas fireplace. Handicapped friendly (first floor bedroom and bathroom, lever door handles, wheelchair wide doorways and ramp access to house, second floor staircase dual railings to help with balance).

Fall foliage and winter cross country skiing and ice fishing.

Jean, one of the owners, grew up spending vacations on the lake. A favorite spot of hers, and her father and his brothers before her was a remote sandy beach you could only access by boat. When the property came up for sale many years later, she and her husband Rob bought it. Working with a local conservation group, the character of the land has been preserved, but now the beach is a short walk away - and private to their property. It's a very quiet spot, and remains, to many, the loveliest spot on the lake.

Great swimming and boating. Gas grill and picnic table, hammock and beach chairs on beach. Kayaks are provided or bring your own boat and beach it on the white sand. Eat-in heated sunporch. Grocery stores, golf, hospital, restaurants 15 minutes away. Fish for bass (no limit), landlocked salmon, or white perch. Ice cream stand and restaurant 1.8 miles away. Championship golf course at world famous Algonquin Resort in St. Andrews, NB, CA, 45 minutes away, is open to the public. 15 minutes to Calais Golf Course. Located in the St. Croix River Valley, there are numerous river and lake trips minutes away. Two border crossings into New Brunswick Canada are 15 minutes away.
