places to stay

Looking for a great place to stay during your next adventure the choices are many. We’ve got everything from backwoods sporting camps, classic campgrounds, wilderness lodges and historic inns, to cottages, in-town hotels, or even the DIY solution of a vacation rental for a couple days or a couple of weeks. No matter how or where you choose to stay be sure to plan ahead and place a reservation well ahead of your arrival.  

lodging options

Migis Inn and Lodge on Sebago Lake

cottage resorts

Housekeeping cottage resorts are a perfect solution for families and groups, offering fully equipped kitchens, living areas, bathrooms, and bedrooms. Others provide a daily meal plan so you don’t have to worry about feeding the troops. Relax in a “modern cabin” with fireplaces, open porches, and Adirondack chairs.

Vacation Rentals are a great way to stay in Maine's Lakes and Mountains.

Vacation Rentals

With some similarities to cottages, this is a home-away-from-home experience. Have the run of the house, condo, or cabin in any setting you’d like, from in-town to wilderness. Some local Realtors will handle the reservation and fees, or you can check online services such as VRBO or Airbnb to make arrangements on your own.

motels and hotels

We have in-town accommodations to fit every budget, ranging from national chains to family-owned.

Inns and B&Bs

Camping in Maine's Lakes and Mountains


Whether you tent or arrive in RV style, camping offers an outdoor experience for every age. You’ll find campgrounds on lakes, wilderness sites, state parks, and private family-owned campgrounds. Some offer glamping with cabin tents and on-site cottages, with lanterns and comfy furnishings. Others can help get your boat in the water.

Sugarloaf Inn at Sugarloaf Ski Resort


These full-service resorts are like a vacation concierge, helping you plan your days—setting up trips, guiding you to trails and places to fish or paddle a kayak—while keeping you well-fed and comfy at night. World-class ski resorts offer easy access to winter sports, entertainment, fine dining, and additional non-winter recreation.
