Classic summer holidays in Long Lake

A favorite amongst generations of families, Maine's Long Lake is a popular summer destination, offering an ideal spot for relaxing and fun-filled vacations in the midst of pristine nature. From warm days spent out on a boat sunbathing and zipping around on water skis, to strolls through the small waterfront towns with an ice-cream cone in hand, there's plenty of ways to soak up the laid-back vibe here, and an array of Long Lake vacation rentals puts you in the heart of it all. Once you've selected your perfect lakeside property, it's off to the swimming beaches, summer festivals and hiking trails.

Out on the waters of Long Lake

If you've been fortunate to secure one of many available Long Lake vacation rentals with a dock, then setting off on boating adventures is a must and several marinas in the waterfront towns of Naples and Harrison offer rentals of pontoons and power boats to get you started. Grab some tubes to bounce around on the waves while soaking up the hot sun or practice your waterskiing and wakeboarding skills as your boat speeds along the 11 mile lake. Afternoons are best spent munching on picnic lunches and sipping frosty beverages out on the open deck enjoying gorgeous views of the lush tree-filled shoreline.

Small town charm in Long Lake

While it can be tempting to spend all day out on the water, make some time to explore the little towns that that dot the shores here too. On the western side of the lake, Bridgton has a walkable Main Street lined with ice-cream shops and diners and is home to a number of historic properties. At the Rufus Porter Museum, housed in a property listed on the National Register of Historic Places, you can see works by the famous New England artist and magazine founder and learn more about his inventions. The property is open to visitors during the summer season.

Summer dreams in Long Lake

There's nothing like summers out on the lake, with the sun beating down onto the open deck and an ice-cold beverage in hand. Temperatures warm up just enough to beckon dips in the water from lakeside beaches and cool off for pleasant evenings spent grilling hamburgers and hotdogs from the backyard of your Long Lake vacation rental. Many attractions only open for the influx of travelers over summer so things start to slow down come fall, but with the breathtaking changing leaves painting the shoreline in oranges and reds in autumn, it's hard to pass up a visit during this cooler season too.

Waterside parks near Long Lake

The region around Long Lake is full of wildlife, woodlands and water features which can be experienced at spots like Sebago Lake State Park. This 2nd-largest lake in the state is situated just south of Long Lake and is connected via a pond and rivers. The 1,400-acre park on its shores offers boat ramps to get out on the lake, sandy beaches for lounging and swimming and several miles of hiking routes that transform into cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails come winter. Deer and bald eagles are among the creatures that have been spotted here, so keep your eyes peeled while walking the paths.
