The History Behind This Remote Hotel In Maine Is Both Eerie And Fascinating

A winter trip to Maine must include some snow activities, like skiing or snowshoeing. But, if you’re headed to Sugarloaf this season, you’ll also have the chance to add some history and intrigue to the mix! Instead of making your next ski day a day trip, plan on staying overnight in Kingfield to have the opportunity to experience this historic hotel. It’s not a swanky as the ones you might find in Portland, but the stories these walls could tell are worth the journey off-the-beaten-path!
