Plush hotels. Quaint country cabins. Rustic log cabins. Or lying under a harvest moon. Lodging in The Kennebec Valley is filled with possibilities…and sweet dreams!
Rest your weary head at a local B&B or inn, where you’ll experience the comforts of home combined with impeccable service. Many are located in the heart of The Kennebec Valley in towns like Winthrop, Hallowell and Monmouth and are operated out of historic, period homes. Take in a bit of history while relishing your downtime. These extraordinary facilities typically accommodate individuals, families, or larger groups with a home-away-from-home appeal.
Enjoy all the amenities of a rental home, cottage, or cabin nestled along the shores of the beautiful Belgrade Lakes or on the foothills of Pleasant Pond Mountain in Caratunk. Swim while being serenaded by loons in Belgrade. Or hike at the break of dawn in Caratunk.
As you travel deeper into the Maine woods, in towns such as Jackman and Rockwood, the appeal of outdoor camping comes to life. Wake to the call of the birds outside the folds of your tent. Or take in a majestic Maine sunrise while sipping coffee in your lounge chair perched near your RV.
