    Summer camps and family fun

    Harrison is a quaint former logging and milling town situated between the ends of Crystal and Long Lake in the southwest corner of Maine. Formerly a waystation for transporting goods by canal, the lakeside wharves with their teeming warehouses were a center for commercial activity in the local area. Today, Harrison is a popular recreation town. Summer camps like Fernwood Cove at Island Pond have long been a draw for family summer breaks. Here, the kids can run amok, splashing around in the lake, while the adults sun themselves on the shore.

    Try your hand at a new hobby

    Long Lake has lots of great activities for all ages. Only a stone's throw from your Harrison vacation rental in town, you can go dinghy sailing, windsurfing and waterskiing with qualified instructors. If getting in the water isn't for you, you can try your hand at archery, go ziplining or clamber across high rope courses. There are also professionally led trips to the nearby mountains and waterfalls, which feature natural water slides. For the more creatively minded, classes in everything from painting and sculpture to photography and creative writing can be booked locally.

    From opera to a trendy concert venue

    The Deertrees Theatre and Cultural Center, located on the outskirts of Harrison, was built in 1936 as an opera house. It now hosts bands, comedy, classical concerts and performing groups from across the state and further afield. Other than the small bar, cafe and local art gallery, this historic building draws in punters with its big names and fantastic natural acoustics. Another great spot, especially during the winter, is High View Farm. It is worth leaving the comfort of your Harrison vacation rental for a winter sleigh ride through the snowy surroundings, with views of the mountains and pine forests.

    Summer's great, but winter's prettier

    Summertime is undoubtedly the best season to visit Harrison. With the main activities concentrated around the lakes and mountains, Maine's hot summers and warm falls are the perfect time to lace up hiking boots or get into swimwear and head for the water. With so much on offer, many families come back year after year to enjoy long hot days with cool breezes, either on the lakes or up on the pine forest trails. Although less popular during winter months, the landscape really is stunning after the snow falls, and you can enjoy fabulous deals on Harrison vacation rentals.

    Listen hard to hear the loon

    With so much natural scenery surrounding Harrison, there is a huge variety of wildlife within reach of your Harrison vacation rental. Hunting and fishing are both popular pastimes in this neck of the woods, and Long Lake is a great spot to catch Northern pike and yellow bullhead. Deer and bird hunting seasons follow on from one another and species such as sharp-tailed grouse, Hungarian partridge and ring-necked pheasant are abundant. The elusive loon and its distinctive song is enough of a draw for birdwatchers to visit Harrison and Long Lake.
