Lodges & Cabins

Reaping the Rewards of the Outdoors

Many visitors yearn for the classic Maine vacation in a lodge or cottage. Such visitors may seek to retreat to a spot deep in the North Woods or to the edge of a lake where the call of the loons is the only interruption. They dream of being outdoors and partaking in its recreational rewards. For many, there is no other choice for their stay: a lodge or cottage provides the real vacation experience.

There are many sporting and wilderness lodges in Maine, some with long traditions of hosting hunters, fisherman, and those just wanting to get away from it all. Lodges provide privacy and, in many cases, access to guides who provide local advice and lead trips to the best recreation spots. They are a sports lover's paradise for all seasons.

In winter, they are the ideal spot for snowshoeing, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing or dog sledding. In fall, they put visitors in the center of the best autumn hikes and foliage. Those coming for hunting season can take guided and unguided hunting trips for grouse, moose, deer and bear. Summer lodges offer easy access to ATVs, motorboats, or canoes, and some specialize in fishing for brook trout and landlocked salmon, or wing-shooting for wild ruffed grouse and woodcock. Lodgers can expect many facilities to provide home-cooked breakfasts, comfort, and time to commune with others in the main lodge about the next adventure.

Cottages (or camps, as they are often called in Maine) also have a special place in the lodging choices of the area. They are a perfect way to experience the region’s natural beauty in a private setting with plenty of amenities. Visitors touring Route 1 will often see properties dotted with charming individual cottages that are just right for families or sports enthusiasts. Comfortable, often air conditioned and heated, cottages provide a tried and true traditional lodging choice for those on the go.
