In the woods or on a lake? Are you looking for something ready to move into and use or one that needs renovation/be completely rebuilt?
My father has a few lakefront properties for sale on Lake Sebasticook in Newport, only 35-40 minutes away from Bangor. Since there are cottages already there, the distance from water is grandfathered so if you were to completely renovate/rebuild you wouldn't need the usual set-back.
The first one was in my grandmother's family and where I spent summers as a kid. It's on 3/4 acre and sits right on a point on the south side of the lake with 275' of frontage. Due to different family circumstances over the years it hasn't been used much so it definitely needs some work, especially the outbuildings. Non-ME residents are taxed by the linear water frontage which is why my father is keeping my uncle's house with a narrower lot. See #8 on the link below.
One of them could probably be used as-is with some work, has 150' of frontage and sits on 1/2 acre. See #16 below.
The last one, while probably salvageable, is in a bit rougher shape. Although it is closer to the water, less than 30'. Almost .70 acres and 102' of frontage.
The agent is Frank Pray-Realty of Maine
