Cabins are nice, but cabins in Maine are perfect. While you really can’t go wrong with a weekend cabin getaway in Maine at any time of year, we think autumn might just be the best. From coastal beauties to forest hideouts, Vacationland has lots of different options for a wonderful trip. Here are just a few of our favorites.
1. Northern Outdoors, The Forks
Northern Outdoors is a year-round adventure resort offers with a twist. Not only are the cabins lovely, but a stay means access to guided whitewater rafting and lots of outdoor sports.
If cabins on your own seem like too much responsibility, you can choose to stay in the resort rooms in the main lodge. If DO you love cabin life, check out the one-room cabins or cozy four-bedroom cabins.
For a little more on-the-grid action, enjoy the onsite brewery and pub, free WiFi in the main lodge. Visit them at 1771 US-201, West Forks / 207-663-4466.
2. Rose Eden Cottages, Bar Harbor
Rose Eden is secreted away in the woods away from the tourist scene of downtown Bar Harbor, but is close enough to Acadia Park to make it the perfect home base. It's also within 5 minutes of a beautiful ocean front beach. The grounds are family friendly and feature a small playground, picnic, barbeque and fire pit area.
