Get away from it all in Greenwood, Maine

Nestled in the foothills of Noyes Mountain and dotted with ponds and lakes that are prettier than any picture, the small town of Greenwood in Maine is the perfect destination for communing with nature. In summer, you can stroll on unpaved roads on your way to catch a glimpse of deer swimming in Hicks Pond or, fill your tummy at the town fish fry.

Things to do

And now for the Maine event: gallivanting in the great outdoors

There's no shortage of nature's bounty in Greenwood. One of the best-known green spaces in town is Maggie's Nature Park, a favorite among hikers for its variety of easy and moderate trails that wind through miles of lush, verdant forest. Completing one of several trails will lead you to Peaked Mountain Bluff, where you'll be treated to panoramic views of Twitchell Pond. For family-friendly winter fun, Greenwood vacation rentals will put you close to the 650-acre Mount Abram ski area, where the trails can accommodate both beginners and expert skiers.

Activities

Immerse yourself in the pleasures of small-town life

Greenwood may be small, but it's big on opportunities for making fun-filled memories. Hobnob with the friendly locals at the farmer's market, where you can buy goodies like homemade jams and jellies, grass-fed meat, and the freshest fruits and vegetables. Take the whole family for a lakeside camping adventure in summer, or introduce the little ones to the joys of winter sports via skiing and snowboarding lessons. Take to hiking trails that wind through woods, or cast your line in one of the myriad lakes and see if the salmon, bass, and trout are biting.

Weather

Enjoy lovely escapades all year round in Greenwood

Greenwood is located in Maine's Oxford County, and like much of New England, it's beautiful no matter what time of the year. There's plenty of time to bask in the sun or go for a swim since on average, there are 200 sunny days per year; it only rains about 87 days a year. Summers are comfortably warm, peaking at around 80 in July. Winters can get really frigid, with the temperature plummeting to a low of 7 degrees in January. But with high snowfall levels—about 76 inches annually—it's perfect for skiing and snowmobile-riding.

Natural features

Pond-er the beauty of Greenwood's rural scenery

Greenwood's ponds and lakes are a big part of its rural appeal. Take a walk along the serene Twitchell Pond and you might catch a glimpse of an eagle perched in the trees lining its banks. Pack a picnic basket and head to Round Pond or nearby North and South Ponds. There, you can watch ducks paddling merrily along and turtles sunbathing on half-submerged logs. Greenwood vacation rentals are also the ticket to calorie-burning climbs up Noyes Mountain, a popular locale for rock and mineral collectors who come to visit the Harvard Quarry at the summit.
