Extended Weekend - Late September or Early October

Hello everyone,

I'm looking for a romantic getaway with my girlfriend in Maine in the coming weeks.

Preferably something near a lake / hiking trails versus the coast. Could be a B&B or a cabin...something on the higher-end. We are in our early 30's.

There are so many regions of Maine that it's quite difficult to find anything easily, so I was trying to tap into Trip Advisor's extremely knowledgeable and handsome user-base! :)

Does anyone have any recommendation?

Thank you so much in advance!

In today's Boston Globe, Migis Lodge in South Casco, Maine is highly recommended for exactly what you seek. Young couples, romantic, 4000 feet of shoreline on Sebago Lake, miles of easy walks and hikes, good dining on site, stone hearth fire places in your cabin, laid with a fire after dinner.

The Moosehead Lake area has excellent hiking and the lake is beautiful. I have never stayed there, but here is one lodge: http://www.lodgeatmooseheadlake.com/

Rangeley Lake is also beautiful and the mountains make for some great hikes. The Appalachian Trail goes nearby. Another lodge I have never stayed at:

Check the ski resorts (Sunday River, Sugarloaf) for fall specials. Bethel Inn is also quite nice. But don't put off making reservations- everyone wants to see the leaves!

Wing's H

ill Inn in Belgrade comes to mind. Migis Lodge is great, but meals are included and for the price you pay, you don't want to leave and try outside dining choices. Also, we've found migis to be mostly older people who've been going there for 50 years. Check vrbo.com for vacation cabins that might be available near Sebago Lake, Lovell Lake, or lakeside up near Camden.
