A classic Maine vacation in Winthrop

Surrounded by lakes, and just 20 minutes from Maine's charming state capital, Winthrop offers a vacation location that makes the most of both Maine's natural beauty and the cultural attractions of Augusta. From cozy log cabins to grand lake-front residences, Winthrop vacation rentals allow you to see Maine at its best. Explore beautiful forested trails and sparkling lakes, then head to the city for world-class dining and cultural attractions, as well as fascinating glimpses into New England and early US history at Augusta attractions like Old Fort Western, Maine State Museum, Blaine House and the domed 19th-century Maine State House.

Lakeside fun in Winthrop

The village of Winthrop sits between the beautiful lakes of Annabessacook and Maranacook. With a historic library, bustling shops and historic mill buildings, downtown Winthrop has a pleasant village feel and can be explored by foot. But, if you want more shopping and dining choices, you're just a 20-minute drive from downtown Augusta. The village also boasts a small but pristine public beach on the southern banks of Maranacook Lake. It's an idyllic spot for lake swimming and kayaking. In summer, this is the location for fun, family-friendly events and concerts or, come winter, ice-fishing and cross-country skiing.

Winthrop's unique local attractions

Winthrop has a unique claim to fame: it's home to the only active inland waters lighthouse in Maine. The Ladies Delight Light is a small lighthouse in the North Bay of Lake Cobbosseecontee. Dating back to 1908, and just 25 feet tall, the tower is maintained by Cobbosseecontee Yacht Club. A 10-minute drive from a Winthrop vacation rental, Cobbosseecontee has many miles of shoreline, dotted with pretty coves and little islands. It's a popular family-friendly destination for sailing, swimming, picnicking, sunbathing, water skiing and canoeing. There's also a small golf course nearby.

Enjoy seasonal color in Winthrop

Winthrop vacation rentals are a short drive from the Androscoggin, Maine's 3rd largest river. Along the green miles of its riverbank, the Androscoggin Riverlands State Park attracts skiers and snowmobilers in winter. In lake spring and summer, you can hike, kayak, canoe, drive ATVs and horseback ride along its many trails. Strolling through the woodlands in the fall is a glorious way to enjoy the autumnal color, although the park is also a popular hunting destination, so be sure to stay visible by wearing bright orange if hiking during the season.

Winthrop's great outdoors

A Winthrop vacation rental is a great choice for birders – the nearby lakes provide opportunities to spot bald eagles, ospreys and loons. Anglers will be in heaven too: fish for bass and perch on Wilson Pond, or head to Androscoggin Lake to try your luck with bass and trout. Many hiking, biking and horseback riding trails cut through the local area. From your Winthrop vacation rental, one of the closest is the Mount Pisgah Fire Trail, a short but rewarding walk through woodland, wild flowers and blueberry bushes to an old observation tower with panoramic views over the sparkling local lakes and gently rolling acres of forest.
