Recent Maine Highlands property reviews

  • Lovely home

    "The inside of this home is lovely and it is stocked with every amenity you could want. The game room was an added bonus as were the kayaks on site. However, this house is not on the actual lake. It is situated on Moose River which leads into Moosehead Lake. Route 6/15 is right across the way which can lead to loud traffic noise. This was the first time visiting this area and it really is breathtaking."

  • A little piece of heaven

    "What a great home! Thank you Ryan for opening your vacation home to us. We had a wonderful time hiking, kayaking, fishing and exploring all the lake had to offer. The house fit us all comfortably and was exactly as pictured and described. Loved the view of the lake while sitting drinking our coffee in the morning and the stars at night while we sat at the fire ring. We all had one of best vacations ever!"

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"

  • Can't be topped

    "We couldn't have asked for anything better. The condition of the cabin and the amenities provided were absolutely perfect for our family of three (although K2 could easily handle a couple of more). Elizabeth and Pete are genuinely good people and welcomed us with open arms. They are very knowledgeable about the area and were great company as well. We had planned on making only one trip to Greenville in our lifetime but staying at K2 may have changed our minds. Thank you for the amazing time Elizabeth and Pete!"

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.
