Millionocket is located in Maine’s North Woods in the shadow of Mt  Katahdin, Maine’s tallest mountain. The region has attracted artists, visitors, and vacationers for more than a century who have been inspired to photograph, paint, hike, paddle, and write about Maine’s North Woods. Mark was a visitor himself for over thirty years before moving to Maine full time.

Mark and Anita are excited about providing local residents, vacationers, and tourists alike an opportunity to view and purchase unique wildlife themed photography, art, and gifts.
