Maine's Lakes & Mountains

Pack your bags for Maine's Lakes & Mountains Region! From peaceful lakes to mountain vistas, we're closer than you think! Not only is the region nearby - it's only three hours from Boston and one hour from the Portland Jetport - it is also family-friendly, safe and affordable.

The Lakes & Mountains Region is a true four-season recreation destination, boasting some of Maine's highest peaks - the Bigelow Range and Mahoosuc Mountains - and hundreds of glacial lakes. Several of Maine's largest lakes are located here, including Sebago, Flagstaff, and Rangeley lakes. Watch as each season dramatically unfolds from the many-colored wildflowers of spring into the beautiful waterways and lush sunlit hillsides of summer, from the world's most brilliant fall colors to the stunning white snowcaps of winter.

Enjoy your favorite outdoor sport or activity, and you'll probably catch a glimpse of a moose or a loon in the process.

Experience nature first-hand: explore the White Mountain National Forest or one of five state parks throughout the region. Linger awhile in our quaint villages and culturally diverse towns and cities. Visit the many craftspeople, shops and museums. Enjoy our special events and festivals, and pamper yourself in our varied accommodations and dining establishments.
