10 miles north of Augusta, the beautiful Belgrade Lakes Region boasts of some of the loveliest lakes in Maine. Comprised of laid-back resort communities offering boating, swimming, fishing, and a variety of family fun, the region is renowned for its chain of seven lakes, pristine streams, hills and woodlands, and cozy towns and villages.
Historically a resort area, Belgrade offers a variety of community events for all ages, such as the Loon Calling Contest, Christmas Stroll, and Octoberfest – a classic Maine event celebrating fall foliage with live music, hayrides, arts & crafts and specialties from the local restaurants.
Numerous hiking areas are protected by the Belgrade Regional Conservation Alliance (BRCA): Mt Philip, French’s Mountain, Blueberry Hill, and Kennebec Highlands. These areas extend opportunities for hiking, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, mountain biking, horseback riding, hunting, and fishing. Or climb to the top of a world-class golf course for panoramic views of lakes and fields. A thriving network of shops and businesses feature antiques, collectibles, and art. The local economy is further bolstered by rental camps, cottages, and bed & breakfasts.
With affordable residential options and highly ranked school systems, the Belgrade Lakes Region is an ideal place to raise a family. If you have questions or would like additional Belgrade information, contact Coldwell Banker Rizzo Mattson Realtors today.
