Visiting This Middle-Of-Nowhere Maine Restaurant Is Like Taking A Daylong Vacation

Here’s something we know to be true about Maine: in the winter we’re all dreaming of going on vacation. Sure, the snow is fun. The first few times. But after a while things get mentally challenging. So much cold, so much rain, so much snow, so much wind. We just want a break. And, strangely, that’s what you’ll get if you head a bit off-the-beaten path to visit this wonder of a restaurant. Or, rather, sporting club! And it’s open year-round so you can take a break any day of the week!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

The Long Lake Sporting Club is open year-round, every day of the week. Monday through Saturday they’re open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m and on Sunday they’re open from noon to 9 p.m. You can learn more about them on their website or visit them on Facebook. They can be reached on 207-543-7584.
