Nestled between the flowing waters of the Magalloway River to the north, and Aziscohos Lake to the south, lies Parmachenee Lake. Parmachenee is charming, remote, rich with history, steeped in tradition, and worthy of novels and fame. Located behind gates, Parmachenee is a wilderness lover's paradise, boasting a world class fishery. Due to its healthy and self-sustaining population of eastern brook trout, Parmachenee Lake and other local waters have been designated as State Heritage Fish Waters, and are fly fishing only with strict bag limits. These 'squaretails' are gorgeous fish with deep colors, and it is not uncommon to hook fish well over two pounds. Many hunting opportunities also await the sporting enthusiast. Spend your days over dogs hunting ruffed grouse and woodcock. Imagine the opportunity to watch native trout rise and roll with the spring hatch at sunrise, or listen as the loons call back and forth at sunset, the quintessential sound of an evening spent on a Maine lake. The forest immediately surrounding the lake has grown mature with red spruce and pine, displaying characteristics of an old growth community. The remainder of the 30,000 acres located behind the gates are managed as sustainable timberland investments. The habitat diversity produces ample birding opportunities, with areas accessible by foot or vehicle. This is a unique opportunity to own a piece of history and lore, to build your dream Maine waterfront camp on the shores of this pristine 912 acre lake. This secluded lot is a piece of paradise, set along a 12 mile shoreline surrounded by towering spruce and pine. The gated access provides seclusion and solitude, allowing for tranquility and the true Maine woods experience. There are only a handful of camps around the lake and behind the gates. All lots are subject to protective covenants to protect water quality, aesthetics, and privacy.
