Our office is located in the heart of Maine outdoor recreation, just 45 minutes north of the city of Bangor.
This region of Maine has deep roots in lumbering and farming dating back nearly 200 years. The last river log drives were in the 1970's. Today lumbering and farming are still the economic drivers for the area along with health services and many small to medium sized companies.
Maine is blessed with four seasons. Our average July high and low are 78 and 57 while January is 23 and 2. This part of Maine gets about 42 inches of precipitation per year.
Our service area has many public K-12 schools, parochial schools, vocational schools and is nearby University of Maine at Orono.
Not surprisingly, the culture in this area revolves around the outdoors. From hunting to fishing, ATV'ing to snowmobiling, swimming, white water rafting and kayaking, mountain climbing, bird watching and many other pastimes. Most of our area towns have populations less than 2000 creating a sense of community not found in more populated areas. Local festivals, county fairs, small concerts, high school sporting events all combine to make this a fun place to call home.
This region is admired by many for its natural beauty, with countless lakes, rivers and streams that run crystal clear over the landscape. Lakes like East and West Grand Lakes, Pemadumcook Chain of Lakes, Cold Stream Pond and Schoodic Lake to name a few. Big rivers like the Penobscot, Piscataquis and Pleasant. We have Baxter State Park, the largest in Maine, right in our "back yard". Baxter Park contains Mount Katahdin, which is Maine's largest and is the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail. We have other small parks such as Mattawamkeag Wilderness Park and thousands of acres of public reserve lands a short drive from our homes. Small shops and stores make shopping fun, and we also have Walmart, hannaford, Mardens and other large stores.
