Dog Sledding Adventures – Full and Half Day Trips Available

It’s March and around the vast Moosehead Lake is a thick blanket of beautiful white snow. Temperatures are still low, the lake is frozen hard and the sky is blue. It is perfect for romantic Maine winter getaways! If you enjoy the snow and looking for new adventures – make Moosehead Lake your destination!  All winter activities are still going strong with hundreds of miles of snowmobile trails at easy access from the Lodge at Moosehead Winter Getaway in Maine Lake.  We are the perfect location for couples looking to explore the remote terrain of mountains, lakes and ponds. If snowmobiling doesn’t tickle your fancy, there is the quiet of cross-country skiing or snowshoeing.  Rentals are available at a nominal fee and we have maps to get you started. Guides are also available to show you the way and teach you the nuances of this sport.  Only two hours away is Sugarloaf Mountain for some of the best downhill skiing in New England for a fun day trip.
