HIKE & SKI
Whether you wander through the woods or move mountains – you can trek along Maine’s well maintained trails throughout all four seasons.

Visit our friends at Poland Spring Resort just down the road from us, and rent a canoe or boat at Cyndi’s Dockside to explore Range (pronounced “Rang,” so you can say it like a Mainer) Pond, and stop in when you’re done for steamed lobster at Cyndi’s Dockside restaurant.
The golf course at Poland Spring Resort is an historic 18-hole, par 71 track designed by Arthur Fenn (the first American-born golf professional) and the esteemed Donald Ross. Adorning each tee box at Poland Spring are signs commemorating legends such as Harry Vardon and Babe Ruth, who have played the course, and Charles Lindbergh, who landed the Spirit of St. Louis on the #15 fairway.
Other enjoyable links in the area are Fairlawn Golf and Country Club in Poland, Norway Country Club in Norway, Spring Meadows Golf Club in Gray, and Auburn’s Fox Ridge Golf Club, and Martindale Country Club, to name a few!
If you’re up for a road trip, Acadia National Park is an astonishing sight to behold, with its rocky shore, Thunder Hole, Cadillac Mountain, Bubble Rock, Sand Beach, Cranberry Islands, Carriage Roads, and so much more! Pack a lunch and behold this gem on the Atlantic Ocean!
Speaking of the ocean, Maine is home to sandy beaches like Reid State Park, Popham Beach State Park, Crescent Beach State Park, Scarborough Beach State Park, Ferry Beach State Park, and Wolfe’s Neck Woods State Park. If you’d like to check out some lighthouses while you’re at it, visit Two Lights State Park, Pemaquid Beach Park, Bug Light, Nubble Light, or the most photographed lighthouse in the world, the Portland Head Light.
Warm weather activities like mountain biking, river kayaking, and white water rafting are opportunities provided across Vacationland and you can hop aboard The Songo River Queen II on Long Lake in Naples to travel the Songo River’s lock system to where it opens up to Sebago Lake. Or you can rent a boat at one of the many marinas on Sebago Lake and explore the locks on your own!
