Maines Lakes & Mountains
For a taste of Maine's unspoiled, rugged countryside, drive inland to the Maine Highlands, following a loop up to Rangeley and back via Routes 26 and 4. The attractions are low key, and all the more attractive for that.In Kingfield, the Stanley Museum honours the brothers who invented the “Stanley Steamer” car. Farmington's famous son is Chester Greenwood, the inventor of – the ear muff!
Fishing and sea kayaking, whitewater rafting and trips into the wilderness: all these adventures and more are on offer. And the best way to enjoy them is to book a Registered Maine Guide.
Why should I visit Maines Lakes & Mountains?
Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village
The last surviving members of the 200-year-old religious sect live here, continuing a tradition dating back to 1783. Visit the museum and the working farm; see their plain but stylish furniture.
Bethel & Sunday River
With historic homes facing a village green, Bethel is a pretty place and nearby Sunday River is a popular ski resort. Activities include golf and hiking, zip lines and, in autumn, “leaf peeping”, admiring the fall foliage.
Enjoy the simple pleasures of paddling on the lake or spotting moose at dusk. Listen to the haunting call of the loon.
