The Ledges sits on 18± beautiful acres and offers 2,000± feet of water frontage on the north shore of Kennebago Lake, said to be “one of the most beautiful of all the feeders of the Rangeley system, walled in by mountains and entirely cut off from the permanent haunts of men,” Harper’s New Monthly Magazine. The lake is known to many as the best “fly-fish-only” lakes east of the Mississippi. Steeped in history dating back to the 1700s, this lake has hosted leaders of industry, presidents, and the world’s most discriminating fisherman seeking out “the paradise of American Trout fishing.”

All the dwellings of this private compound have been completely restored. The main house offers a large covered porch wrapping around the length of the house. The main living area features a large brick fireplace, which serves as the focal point of the room. The rest of the main house has been expanded and provides a master bedroom with a private bath and a guest bedroom. The historic cookhouse is complete with a period oven and cook-stove, all powered by propane. The feel and design of the kitchen and dining area takes you back to a forgotten time.

There are three additional bunkhouses around the main camp, each offering multiple sleeping accommodations and private bathrooms, allowing for guests and family to have an intimate and quiet retreat. Including the main house, there are seven bedrooms and five full baths. The original cabins were built around 1898 and the front door of the main house still carries the names of the guests that have visited over the years. Highlighting the property is a classic boathouse at the water’s edge with direct access to the water.
