Maine is divided into eight distinct tourism regions
, each offering unique activities, events and vacation rental accommodations. With 6,000 lakes, 32,000 miles of rivers, 5,000 miles of coast and 17 million acres of forestland, there’s plenty of room to spread out and experience all Maine has to offer.
Part of the fun of a visit to Maine is its great diversity
and eclectic vacation rentals. A trip to southern Maine, with its beaches, infamous lobster dinners
, communities, and cosmopolitan cities, is very different than a visit to the north, where forests and farms prevail. From your condo rental accommodation, you can hike in the world-famous White Mountains
and have dinner in Portland, which Forbes calls America’s “most-livable city”
, shop in the nationally known outlets of Freeport
, go for a whale watch, visit a fine art museum in Rockland and then see the colony of painters on remote and rugged Monhegan all in the same day.
Vacation rentals in Maine offer some of the best skiing in the East
, the finest sailing waters this side of the Mediterranean
, world-renowned parks, two of America’s best art museums, internationally known shopping areas, award-winning restaurants, dozens of National Historic Landmarks
, extraordinary beaches, exceptional kayaking, antique stores that know few peers, nationally ranked golf courses
, moose safaris and whale watching trips that are all but guaranteed to succeed.
The state’s diverse lodging options include apartment rentals, condo rentals and hundreds of family-friendly vacation rental accommodations. Travel to the state’s thriving cities or charming small towns, and you’ll discover that New England hospitality
is part of every Maine vacation rental holiday. Where you stay is up to you: romantic getaways or weekend trips offer distinctive amenities, while scenic mountains and lakes
offer stunning natural views from sporting and fishing lodging.
Perhaps you'll discover a charming family condo rental tucked away along the shores of a pristine lake, cozy weathered accommodation on a bluff overlooking a sheltered cove, a rustic theatre offering entertaining performances somewhere off the beaten path, or a unique museum presenting an intriguing look into an important aspect of Maine history. There’s a reason Maine is called “Vacationland.”
Thanks to its unique natural setting, a spectacular coast and a woodsy, mountainous interior, you can find an almost endless variety of things to do.
