Explore Maine’s third-largest lake when you fly to a jet charter airport in Chesuncook, Maine.
Situated in the heart of north-central Maine, Chesuncook sits perfectly in the middle of the state, making for accessible travel to famed American author Stephen King’s mansion in Bangor, New France in the heart of Quebec or the Canadian maritime province of New Brunswick. But, before you continue your journey onwards, there’s plenty to enjoy and experience right in Chesuncook and the Maine Highlands.
Your journey through Maine begins at Nugent Chamberlain Lake Seaplane Base. Located right in Chesuncook, Nugent Chamberlain, or 39B, this small seaplane base is perfectly situated for taking in the beauty of northern Maine as you descend above Chesuncook Lake. When your jet goes wheels down, follow the lake to its northern coast where you will find Chesuncook Lake House and Cabins. Located right on the water’s edge, this is the perfect place to stay if you want to experience Maine’s rugged beauty.
A sprawling 26,200 acres, Chesuncook Lake is a haven for expert and amateur anglers alike. Head to the southwestern portion of Chesuncook Lake, also called Caribou Lake in this region, for landlocked salmon fishing. Here, you’re free to find your own way in a canoe or kayak as you enjoy the peaceful waters.
On the northern edge of the lake near your accommodation, we recommend larger boats and hiring a registered Maine guide for a chance to catch massive white perch near the Umbazooksus Stream.
