Moosehead Lake: the biggest in New England

If you’ve long fantasized about visiting the grandest and most sizable mountain lake in New England, you’re in the right place. Maybe you dream of having a friendly encounter with a moose, too. Moosehead Lake can give you all of that--and it also gives Maine its status as one of the most scenic states in the country. It’s set in the Longfellow Mountains and is a tributary of the Kennebec River. Wildlife is a major draw here, and when you step outside your Moosehead Lake vacation rental you just might run into—you guessed it—moose, along with black bears, deer, and coyotes.

Moose watching and ATVs: Only at Moosehead Lake

Outdoor enthusiasts, listen up: You can’t really go wrong in Moosehead Lake. Adventurous terrains provide the perfect setup for a hike, a bike ride, or an ATV ride. If you’re more interested in sky than land, look up for some epic birdwatching opps. Of course, the area is simply a freshwater lover’s dream, and this is the best area in the state to grab an oar and take to the shimmering waters. If you’re in town during fall, take a self-appointed sightseeing tour and take in the breathtaking changing of the leaves—oh, yes, and keep your eyes open for a moose (or two).

Moosehead Lake is more than just moose sightings

If you’ve got your Moosehead Lake vacation rental anytime between late June and Memorial Day weekend, scoot over to the Moosehead Marine Museum for a little maritime madness—of the best kind. Check out the fascinating sea-based treasures and artifacts that contributed to the area’s beauty. And if you’re more of an indoors sort? Make your way to the Spotted Cat Winery, a beautiful property at the south end of the lake surrounded by lush gardens.

Come one, come all, come in the fall

If you’re envisioning yourself curled up by the fire in your Moosehead Lake vacation rental, your fantasy probably takes place in the fall—and coincidentally, that’s the best time to visit the area. The air is crisp with heady pine and cool aquatic notes, and the leaves begin to make their remarkable transformation. It’s expectedly cool in the winter—just kidding, it’s downright cold and snowy, and you really need layers. The good news is that the lakeside air helps the water stay temperate year round, and you can enjoy a refreshing swim to cool off in the summer months.

Thousands of acres of natural beauty

As a region, Moosehead Lake is no slouch. It takes up a whopping 4400 square miles of Maine’s west-central area. Known primarily for its stunning waters, the lake is surrounded by majestic mountains and traced by craggy trails that are just made for climbing, biking, and exploring. The most impressive is the Appalachian Trail, which extends to a beautiful finish on Mount Katahdin. Hiking aside, it’s also a beautiful spot to take in breathtaking sunsets. Keep your eyes open for black bears, moose, coyotes, and beavers.
