•              Mystery Place in Maine

 

If you are a fan of Camden or Bar Harbor, no offense, but those are not the best places to visit in Maine! in my personal opinion there is a better place. If you are one of those people who ,like to get away from home every once in a while, and take a break to just relax, this is the place for you! It is about an hour away from the busy city of Bangor, and just an hour away from the highest mountain in Maine, Mount Katahdin. There are also other mountains around that you would enjoy to hike and climb. At Gulf Hagas there are beautiful waterfalls throughout the mountain and a lot of wildlife to see. The landscaping is beautiful as well.

 

 

 

From the lake you have a clear view of Mount Katahdin and the majestic mountain range it towers over. Most of the time you can see snow on top of the mountains and when the sun hits it just right in the morning, it is breathtaking. There are many wild animals around as well. We have seen moose, foxes, beavers, deer, coyote, and other interesting animals right near our camp.

 

 

 

Most of the time the weather in Lakeview Plantation is very pleasant, although it can change very quickly! if you like fast paced excitement, try being on a boat at the other end of an eleven mile long lake when a storm hits. At first you may think Lakeview is very boring and there is nothing to do. But you are wrong. There is no Internet, cable

TV, or McDonald’s, but rest assured you will experience facets of life that Google and cheeseburgers could never provide.

 

 

 

During the winter you can ski and snowmobile and do many other activities. Additionally, there is an ice-fishing contest there every year were you can win fantastic prizes, including a four wheeler! During the summer you can take part in rock climbing, hiking, water skiing, tubing, knee boarding, and best of all, swimming. My favorite place to go swimming would be a place called Dead Man’s Rock! Iknow that doesn’t seem so pleasant, but it’s a big rock about 10 feet out of the water and is incredibly exciting to jump off!

 

 

Have you guessed the mystery place here in Maine? The breathtaking spot I have been talking about is located at Norway Point on Schoodic Lake in lovely Lakeview Plantation!
