Finding a sizable, private lot on Second Gardner Lake is astonishing. Finding one with 1100± feet of shorefront is a gift. Just off the beaten path, surrounded by trees, wildlife, birds, and serenity this 28± acre lot is a get-away sanctuary. Build your retreat, a family home, or small cottages to welcome family and friends. As you travel down a rural country road you may be greeted by a neighbor or some local wildlife such as deer, rabbits, moose, and an abundance of migratory birds. West facing you will encounter magnificent sunsets that are waiting for your photographic eye. There are two more options for this beautiful piece of land. The full 80± acres lot is offered at $130,000, 28± Acres with the 1100± feet of frontage on the lake for $72,000 and 52± acres without water frontage for $73,000.

Timber harvest is a prominent source of employment in this area while others such as aquaculture, Maine wild blueberries and wreath making are seasonal sources of income for many in the area. The major source of employment here is lobster, crab, scallop, urchin, and clam fishing.
Recreational fishing for trout and salmon in the local streams and rivers as well as ice fishing for bass, trout, and whitefish is abundant. Snowmobiling, canoeing, rafting, and swimming are a passion for locals. Second Gardner itself is a deep-water lake with many inlets around the border. Summer breezes off the lake, winter snows and ice make this lot a dream come true for the outdoor enthusiast. Hunting for whitetail deer, snowshoe rabbit, grouse, duck and various other wildlife is an avid pastime. There is a firearm and archery season to match the species being sought after.
While some seek out the woods and waters, others seek other destinations. Art galleries, libraries, craft shops, horse farms and shows, reading groups, hands on pottery, metal working, painting lessons and so much more that help to identify the surrounding communities are easily accessible from this lot. Imagine sitting on the shore of your lot on a warm afternoon painting a sunset reflection on the lake or taking a weekend class for grooming your horse, or perhaps joining a group for Book of the Month. There is no limit to what you can do or where it will take you from here!
