Did you know that America's first commercial railway opened in Massachusetts in 1826? Today, railroads take a back seat to airplanes, but their legacy lives on through rail routes that have been repurposed for hiking and biking. During the winter months, these trails make excellent places for snowshoeing and winter biking. Our real estate agents love the incredible perspective on Northern New England found in traveling these amazing rail trails throughout the region.
It would be hard to even picture a more beautiful place than the Kennebec River Valley. Stretching from the Canadian border to the Maine capital in Augusta, the Kennebec River and the 5,000 square miles of wooded hills and valleys that lie on either side of its banks represent one of America's great pristine landscapes. It's a region that our real estate agents feel lucky to call home – and we think that you will too.
The Kennebec River meanders along for 170 miles, all of it within the state of Maine. Wild at times, placid in many stretches, it's a beautiful river surrounded by lofty pines and rugged hills seemingly untouched by man. The Kennebec is a whitewater rafting mecca, a fisherman's paradise and a nature photographer's dream come true.
