Hotels in The Highlands
This longtime hunting and fishing lodge on Moosehead Lake resides on an 11,000-acre nature preserve. John Willard and his family have run the resort since the late ’60s, presiding over a handful of wooden cabins that range in size from one to four bedrooms, all with wood-burning stoves.
Arguably the finest inn in all of inland Maine (and possibly the entire state), the Blair Hill Inn is pure North Woods fantasy.
Designated by the federal government as a historic property, this central Maine inn dates back to 1864, and originally served as a farmhouse and boarding house for loggers. Now it hosts leisure travelers, who head here to boat, swim, canoe, and hike in the summer, or snowmobile in the winter.
