Recent Maine Highlands reviews

  • 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."

  • The Perfect Vacation Spot

    "My husband and I cannot say enough about our wonderful experience at Pine Point Cabin! Words fail! This cabin and its secluded location on a beautiful lake provided the peace and rest we craved, and everything we needed was right there. We enjoyed the little town of Lincoln, and we also enjoyed outings to the shore and to Moosehead Lake. We took hundreds of photos--many right at Pine Point--trying to capture the many moods of lake and sky, as well as the brilliant fall foliage. We hoped to capture a picture of loons, but they were elusive! Thankfully, we did hear them in the evening, calling to each other across the lake. Many thanks to the owners for making this property available to vacationers like us!"

We had perfect weather.The cabin had everything we needed in all the right settings. There were loons and a blue heron nearby.The swimming water was very clean. The swimming area was shallow. Beautiful for Kayaking at any part of day.Not noisy ,very peaceful. Good mattresses. The bathroom organized and clean with washer dryer. The toilet seat needs replacing however. The location perfect access to Lincoln and other parts of Maine"

  • Little Slice of Heaven!

    "My boyfriend and I just spent the last 5 nights at this wonderful house right on the lake! It is in a quiet little cove down a long, beautiful road. Although there is room to sleep many many more, it was a great romantic getaway for the two of us and our dogs. The owner Kim was so gracious and allowed us a last minute extension of our stay because we didn't want to leave! Relaxing in this cozy log cabin next to the fireplace was great at the end of a long day of snowmobiling right onto the lake and miles and miles of trails or snowshoeing across the lake all from the backyard. The hot tub is SO nice and has a bajillion settings to sooth your sore muscles. We soaked and watched the sun set and the mountains turn pink across the lake, it was amazing. Every night we played pool in the basement - but there's also a ping pong and fooz ball table there! The house has all of the amenities you need and it felt like a lot of TLC was put into every aspect of it. It is the perfect location, a short distance to town, the grocery store, restaurant/bars, and Northern Outdoors where we rented some gear. We also went dog sledding with Mark Patterson at Lone Wolf Guiding Services - HIGHLY suggest this! Overall a fantastic place to vacation and we look forward to returning in the future, hopefully in summer when we can see some moose!"

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. In fact, many have almost any luxury you can think of, including a welcome for the family dog.
