When camping won’t quite cut it but a hotel doesn’t fit the bill, renting a cabin or cottage can prove the ultimate crowd-pleaser. It’s also a great way to vacation when you’re traveling in a big group. Whether you’re a keen snowmobiler, a laid-back family searching for a budget beach getaway or a couple that’s mad on wildlife, these Maine cabins promise a change of pace.
If snowmobiling piques your interest, then pencil in a winter vacation at this lakeside lodge off Route 201. Owner-operator Joe grooms hundreds of miles of trails each season, right on the lodge’s doorstep. But there’s also some fine off-trail snowmobiling to be had nearby, so much so that the lodge, and the region, are frequently named among the country’s best. Expect clean, modern cabins and a barbecue restaurant lined with local memorabilia.
