Recent Maine Highlands property reviews

  • Our new Northwoods getaway destination!

    "We normally camp in the area but decided to look for a cabin this year because we now have an infant. This cabin was absolutely perfect for us because you still feel the privacy and seclusion of the woods but if it rains you have a nice cozy cabin to hang out in. our favorite feature was the huge screen porch which we enjoyed many meals and card games on, if we weren't sitting fireside. We also enjoyed excursions to schoodic lake for afternoon swims and had a fabulous trip to endless lake which is gorgeous and pristine beyond compare!!! We have rented many cabins and houses in Maine over the years and this was by far the cleanest and most well maintained. Everything smelled fresh and inviting and worked the way it was supposed to. The caretakers are lovely people and showed us how to use everything;) We stayed there for almost 2 weeks in August and came back in September!!!"

  • Great Family Vacation

    "The cabin was absolutely beautiful and spacious with everything we needed with the exception of food. The lake was a little further than we thought but still a quick drive and very kid friendly with the roped off area. We saw many deer and rabbits along our travels and finally saw 1 moose the last night we were there after venturing down a few dirt roads in the evening. The hot tub was the perfect ending to each day. We also rented the bungalow diagnally across the street and although we didn't end up needing it, it did become a quiet, peaceful get-a-way for a night for one person in our party wanting a little more peace and quiet that was not possible with the kids in the cabin. Everybody enjoyed taking a walk over to the hammock on that property and relaxing for a bit. We really enjoyed our stay."

  • A haven of calm and tranquility

    "Arriving at Tomhegan camp is a joy after leaving London 2 days before. The situation on Moosehead Lake is perfect and it combines the peace of the forest with the reassurance of knowing people are around and there are always Kayaks to be rented. The cabin we stayed in was perfectly comfortable without being over appointed and we could watch the deer and wild life roam in front of the house. The water was surprisingly warm and a joy to swim in. Perfectly clear of course.We went for long walks, good kayak trips and treated ourselves to a trip in a 1954 build Seaplane which I can recommend. Our teenage/young 20's 'children' enjoyed it as well and appreciated the nature. I enjoyed the long private drive (4 miles maybe) which was perfect for a morning run. The camp is very well looked after by Norm and Leona who even treated us to a trip on their boat and made us feel really at home. Boats/kayaks/canoe are available for hire. We look forward to returning one day."

Maine Highlands Travel Tips

Maine Highlands Vacation Rentals are Ideal Year-Round

The diverse region surrounding Maine Highlands cabins is home to the state’s highest mountain, biggest lake, longest river and Baxter State Park, the pinnacle of Maine’s conservation success. The main airport is Bangor International Airport and the main road into the region is Interstate 95. Other main roads to explore the area are Routes 15 and 9 and the rural areas are also easily accessible. Visitors can follow Route 201, known as the Old Canada Road Byway. This road follows an old Abenaki tribe trading path. Following this road will take visitors to the Canadian border.

The Maine Highlands area includes Bangor, Katahdin, Lincoln and Moosehead Lakes and Sebastian Valley. The region has distinct seasons, from warm summers to great snowy winters and, of course, its famous spectacular falls.

Discover a Fascinating History at Maine Highlands Cottages

Maine Highlands vacation rentals are ideal for exploring Bangor. This beautiful city began its life as a large lumber port back in the 1860s, due to its location by the Penobscot River. The city is known for its impressive architecture dating from this period. While here, visitors can enjoy a night at the Bangor Symphony and the Maine Discovery Museum, which is a great place for children. Scattered throughout the region are quaint small towns, perfect for getaways. Each town offers its own unique charms where only one thing is constant--the small-town welcome for visitors.

There are so many museums in the region that it may be impossible to visit them all. The Moosehead Marine Museum was originally a steamboat dating from 1914. The Maine Forest and Logging Museum at Leonard’s Mill is a living history museum situated on the site of an old pioneer settlement and includes a reconstruction mill from the 1800s. There is also a living history museum at the Curran Homestead where visitors can sample rural farm life. Page Farm and Museum has a great collection tracing farming technology, an old school house from the 1800s and a restored traditionally built barn.

Find Waterfalls and Swimming Holes in the Forests

Of course, the major attraction in this region is the vast outdoor space within easy reach of Maine Highlands cottages. Baxter State Park, with over 200 miles of trails, is an ideal place to go hiking, biking, horseback riding, rock climbing and more. Within Katahdin Iron Works Forest, visitors will find Gulf Hagas. This national natural landmark is part of the Appalachian Trail; it is some 400 feet deep and over three miles long. The trek provides welcome respite from the trail with waterfalls and swimming holes for taking a break to cool off. Surrounded by forest, Moosehead Lake is not just a great place to spot moose; it is also perfect for sports. Visitors here enjoy kayaking, canoeing, fishing and whitewater rafting. The surrounding area is ideal for biking and hiking in summer and a variety of snow sports in winter. Then there is Mount Katahdin, where the sporting action continues with hiking and biking trails within the spectacular scenery.

Maine Highlands Cabins Have as Many Luxuries as Necessities

If you can’t decide whether you want to be by a lake or in the forest, then don’t. Maine Highlands cabins include lakefront properties, set right in the forest. Whether you are looking for a family home, an extra large property for a group of friends or a cozy hideaway for two, here you will find the best possible options. Want more than just a great location? These properties come with luxuries extras such as big screen TVs, entertainment systems, internet access, hot tubs, and BBQs.
