  • Great "away from it all" vacation!

    "Our family (5 adults and 6 kids under the age of 10) enjoyed our summer stay in Lakeville. The home and location were great for our big family. We were afraid that 1.5 baths would be a challenge but it worked out fine and we had plenty of room both inside the house and outside. The lake is a short walk from the house and the kids enjoyed picking blueberries by the lake and playing in the water. There's lots of woods to explore and my boys enjoyed the "hikes" we went on. Lakeville is a good distance but yet central from the "touristy" areas but we did take a few day trips. Acadia (about 2-2.5 hours), Eastport (about 2.0 hours), and Bangor (about 1.5 hours). You'll want to buy your groceries before arrival as it's about 45 minutes to a grocery store (in Lincoln), but once you're settled, you have everything you need for your home away from home! Bob and Debbie were great to work with and we couldn't have asked for better "landlords"! Our only complaint was we didn't get to see a moose! :)"

  • Weekend Getaway

    "The stay was absolutely wonderful. We saw a few Hawks, partridges, chipmunks, deer, and squirrel. Unfortunately there were no moose sightings but we did see quite a few tracks. The stars at night were incredible and the crisp cold air made it perfect for campfires. The whole place was incredible and so peaceful. Thank you for allowing us to stay and we can't wait to come back."

  • Get away from it all!

    "This log cabin is amazing! It is absolutely immaculate inside and beautifully decorated. We were very comfortable during our stay. We loved that we could bring our small dog with us and he absolutely enjoyed the dock and swimming in the river! We also loved that the owners allowed us to use their kayaks and took the two person kayak out exploring one full day. Anything major is about 20 mins away, which for us was not a problem, but there is a small gas station, grill/pub, and town store combination about 10 mins or less from the property if you need something desperately. Candace was a great communicator throughout and made our stay very easy. We thoroughly enjoyed eating at the Greenville Inn. Next time, we will book in advance (they say to make reservations one week in advance) at the The Blair Hill Inn as well. These were slightly more upscale dining areas. We saw many moose along Routes 6 + 15 at dusk which is both exciting and nerve wracking at night! We took a moose cruise from The Birches which was just okay. We saw the tail end of one moose only. However, it was a nice way to see the lake. I wish we could stay here longer. We will definitely book again. Thank you so much Candace. This place is a real gem. You should post more pictures."

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.
