When we first toured our Arnold cabin and put in an offer, it was mid January and it included the typical cold and snowy weather you’d expect. The locals we ran into kept saying, “Just wait until summer, it’s the absolute best up here in the mountains!” But with that swim lake covered in a thin film of ice, it was nearly impossible to imagine us splashing around on a hot summer day.
We were going on pure faith that the locals were telling the truth.
Moving to Maine in January is not ideal, we’ll grant you that, but there’s something really exciting about arriving to a beautiful part of the country, when things are icy and dormant. As each season unfolds in this coming year, we will get to experience it as if it’s a gift being unwrapped and we cannot wait.
