Province Lake real estate is a beautiful, but lesser known, market for lake homes and land in New Hampshire.
Province Lake is on the New Hampshire-Maine border, mostly in New Hampshire. It spans Wakefield and Effingham, New Hampshire, and South Parsonsfield, Maine.
Portland, Maine is around 55 miles away, and Concord is around 60 miles away for big-city getaways.
The Portsmouth International Airport is 50 miles away, and the Portland International Jetport is under 55 miles away. For medical care, Huggins Hospital is 19 miles away.
Residents can shop for groceries and snacks at several markets and stores within 10 miles. Locals recommend restaurants such as The Carriage House Bistro & Tavern, Blue Bay Seafood & Steaks, Cindy’s Place, and Knotty Pine Grill & Tavern.
At 968 acres, you’ll be hard-pressed to run out of things to do on Province Lake.
Popular activities are boating, water skiing, paddling, fishing, and swimming. Many homes have docks, making it easy to explore the water by boat, kayak, or canoe.
Anglers can expect to find yellow perch, horned pout, largemouth bass, and smallmouth bass.
Off-the-water activities are golfing, hiking, cross-country skiing, wildlife viewing, birding, visiting the state forest, camping, and relaxing along the shoreline.
Province Lake’s proximity to Maine also means that the city of Portland isn’t far off.
In Portland, visitors can expect to find great shopping and coffee shops at historic Old Port. In Old Port, most of the buildings are constructed entirely of brick, remnants from Maine’s shipping days. The older architecture makes Old Port an excellent photo destination.
Another top attraction is Allagash Brewery, which offers tastings and a food truck featuring lobster rolls.
Newcomers to Portland are invited to garner an appreciation for the beautiful collections at the Portland Museum of Art.
Concord, the capital city of New Hampshire, has lots to offer residents of Province Lake.
The top attraction is the independently owned Red River Theatre. This theatre offers screenings of independent films as well as classic movies.
Those more interested in live performances should head to Capitol Center for the Arts. There they will find ballet, country, rock, and Broadway performances.
Another attraction is the Mcauliffe-Shepard Discovery Center, named after Christina Mcauliffe and Alan Shepard. This museum features interactive indoor and outdoor exhibits as well as a planetarium.
Whether you are looking to buy a family home, a full-time retirement residence, or a waterfront property, Province Lake is an excellent choice.
