Wilton vacation rentals

Log off and connect with nature in central Maine

Once a prominent logging town and now a prime recreation area, the quaint town of Wilton may be home to just over 4,000 people, but you'd never know from everything going on in the area. Set on the shores of Wilson Lake in the heart of Maine's forested mountain wilderness, you'll get a taste of small town life at the charming shops, small businesses, and restaurants. A Wilton vacation rental offers a good balance between historical sites and breathtaking nature. From cool summers to snowy winters, there are endless outdoor activities to give you your fresh air fix.

There's a sport for every season in Wilton

Stretch your legs and head to Wilson Lake for some quality water time or to play 18 holes at Wilson Lake Country Club. Kineowatha Park has a public beach and several sports courts in summer, and an ice skating rink in winter. For camping and picnicking, head to Mt. Blue State Park, which offers prime boating, swimming, and canoeing opportunities. Skiers should head to Saddleback or Titcomb Mountains. For mountain biking and moose viewing tours, hit up Sugarloaf Mountain. There are also lots of snowmobile trails around. And like any good Maine town, there's an annual Blueberry Festival.

Walk in the footsteps of central Maine's history

A Wilton vacation rental gives you plenty of options for checking off sites on the National Register of Historic Places. In town, you'll find the turn-of-the-century L. Brooks Leavitt home and the Goodspeed Memorial Library, a Classic Revival-style building dating from 1916. The Bass Boarding House offers a true taste of local history. Built in the 1860s, it was used as worker housing for G.H. Bass & Co. (the former factory building is right next door). Today it's home to the Wilton Farm and Home Museum. In nearby Farmington, you'll find the historic Octagon, built in 1858.

Bundle up, baby, 'cause it's cold out there

Skiers are in luck, because you'll find snow, snow, and more snow at your Wilton vacation rental. Expect to see plenty of the white stuff any time between November and April, when the low temps drop below freezing. January and February are the coldest months, where you'll see a lot of single digit (and even below-zero) temperatures. Summers are pleasantly mild, with highs comfortably in the upper 70s during the warmest months of June to August. Fall brings a photo-worthy foliage display, with the fiery colors typically reaching their peak in September or early October.

Don't lose sight of the forest for the trees

Wilton sits in a wooded wonderland of tree-covered hills and mountains. The vast forests offer plenty of hiking trails, where you can encounter the wildlife among the old pines. Wilson Lake is home to lots of fish, and even some sandy beach stretches in Kineowatha Park. Several rivers and streams run through it all, making for some tranquil walks in the woods. The surrounding mountain peaks are perfect for skiing. You might even encounter a moose or 2 (for safe viewing, opt for a moose spotting tour).
