    A maze of green waterways

    Lake Arrowhead is a shallow, artificial body of water created by the construction of dams on the Little Ossipee River. It lies between the idyllic townships of Waterboro and Limerick in southwestern Maine. Although a particularly rural destination, there is much around your Lake Arrowhead vacation rental. The small, but welcoming, community offers a surprisingly diverse list of activities for naturalists and those looking to escape city life. With large wooded areas surrounding countless coves and inlets to explore, Lake Arrowhead is the perfect getaway for those who really want to get away.

    Endless water-based fun

    With the lake itself being the main draw to the area, it's unsurprising that there are endless opportunities for water-based fun. You can walk down to the shore from your Lake Arrowhead vacation rental and hop aboard the miniature paddle steamer, the Arrowhead Queen, for great views of the village and surrounding forest. Both captains are fantastically entertaining guides who are more than willing to let the kids take a turn piloting the ship. If all that sounds a little slow-paced, the McKenzie Water Ski School offers lessons and hires out jet skis.

    Eat, drink and be merry

    There's more to do around your Lake Arrowhead vacation rental than just water sports. The community village has lots of places to eat and drink local wine, almost all with spectacular views of the lake itself. Every fall, the village celebrates Oktoberfest; giant salty pretzels, washed down with a wide selection of ice-cold, frothy beers to the sound of live bands. The Mountain History Museum is a great little roadside attraction that gives a good overview of the local area, including information about celebrities and movie stars, past and present, who own the beautiful lakeside villas around Arrowhead.

    Best of Maine as the leaves turn

    The seasonal temperature around your Lake Arrowhead vacation rental is typical of this northeastern state. Long, hot summers and, often, extremely cold winters mark the years as they go by. This means that spring and fall may be the most inviting times of year to visit the area. Rental prices in these shoulder months are more affordable than in high season, and with flowers in bloom or leaves turning, both seasons are a glorious time to visit. You may even be lucky enough to dine al fresco in the warm late spring evenings.

    More nature than you can shake a stick at

    The area surrounding your Lake Arrowhead vacation rental is packed with places to enjoy the natural wonders of Maine. Wildhaven Ranch is a rescue sanctuary for animals that cannot be returned to the wild. Here you can see predators native to North America, such as bears, coyotes and bobcats. Watch hawk and kestrel displays by trained professionals and learn more about the landscape and wildlife. Heaps Peak Arboretum is another great wildlife location, with marked trails and information signs identifying local plants and flower species on short looped treks through the pines.
