Do you desire lakefront land in a remote area at an affordable price? Look at this 2+/- acres of heavily wooded land for sale on the shore of Horseshoe Lake in Lakeville, Maine.
Wilderness Lot - The land is nearly level forestland with a mixture of hardwoods and softwoods. Some truly impressive pine and hemlock trees will be found on this property. The property will be surveyed to have 200 feet of frontage on Horseshoe Lake. This lot will have some terrific south westerly facing lake views with rolling hills in the background.
Depending on your needs and requirements this land could be used for a new cabin location or just for summer camping. A true off grid location with dark skies at night, the location is miles from the nearest electric utility and phone lines. If you need electricity, this site will require solar or other alternative energy solutions.
Horseshoe Lake & The Frog - The lake is a 400-acre remote body of water with maximum depths reported at 25 feet. This is a trophy smallmouth bass lake with a population of white perch. The perch is a Maine delicacy of abundant supply. Fishermen should not feel any shame bringing a bucket of these filets home for dinner.
The property is located on what is known as “The Frog”, a prominent peninsula in the center of the lake that creates the horseshoe shape giving the waterbody its name. The side of the peninsula away from the lot is boggy land featuring wonderful habitat for loons, turtles, wading birds, moose, and many other species of wildlife.
Nearby Recreation - The outlet of Horseshoe Lake feeds into Junior Lake and can be navigated with a canoe or kayak with a couple beaver dam portages. A remote canoe trip is possible from Horseshoe to nearby Grand Lake camping sites and protected areas of the Downeast Lakes Land Trust. The area has both ATV and snowmobile trails that are maintained by local volunteer clubs.
Location - The Frog on Horseshoe Lake is located about 85 miles by car northeast of Bangor, Maine. This is the vast forest region located between Route 2, Route 6, Route 1 and Route 9 consisting nearly 1 million acres of forestland dotted by hundreds of lakes and ponds. The area is sparsely populated and most of the development is seasonal recreational cottages used for fishing, hunting and other recreation.
