  • Great place

    "The cabin was wonderful. It was clean, well cared for and comfortable. Making our reservation was very easy and went smoothly. We had a great time fishing from the dock. The wind was pretty bad the entire week we were there so we didn't get to go out on the boat very much, but we did catch fish from the dock. We took our dog with us and she had a ball. I would recommend this cabin for anyone."

  • Fantastic and relaxing rental.

    "I have been going to Lee maine since I was 5 years old and I have to say this is a great part of the lake to stay on, it is quieter than the other side, the house was a hit with my family and our friends that live in Lee, we loved the big yard and the clean lake bottom around the dock was great. I will tell friends and family if they want a quiet and restfull place to stay this is it."

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.

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.
