Rockport Lodging Through the Seasons
We can’t argue that most people love to come to Maine in the summer. After all, it can get pretty cold up here in winter and the Pine Tree State isn’t exactly toasty in spring or fall.
But you miss so much here in the Rockport area and throughout the whole state if you visit just in the summer.
Read below about why we feel Maine is beautiful year round.
Many Maine residents believe fall is the absolute best time of year to be here. The air is crisp. The leaves are turning gorgeous shades of yellow, orange and red. and….most of the tourists are gone.
Fall foliage in Maine is spectacular just about anywhere in the state, from the coves and waterways in and around Rockport, to the apple orchards farther inland (pick your own apples and have a glass of cider fresh from the press), to the forests surrounding our plentiful lakes and streams.
Visit Bar Harbor via Acadia Byway. Travel along this byway to and from Acadia National Park for some terrific fall foliage displays.
We can get a lot of snow here in Maine in the winter – that’s why the state practically shimmers! Come in the winter and go skiing or walk on some snowshoes. Ride along in a horse-drawn sleigh. Explore our state’s gorgeous backcountry on a snowmobile, or take it in on cross country skis.
Look for our villages decked out in holiday finery in December and explore those same villages along snow covered paths and walkways (cleared of course!). Or, if you’re a true romantic, snuggle with a loved one under the down quilts on our beds. We can also send you to some lovely pubs and restaurants and ski lodges for snuggling by a roaring fireplace. Sorry, Glen Cove Inn is closed during the winter months.
When spring springs up in Maine, all manner of glory unfolds. Explore the mountains, woods and waterways, bays, and coves on foot or via bicycle. Rent a kayak and explore a lake. Look for moose as you hike in our forests. Relax at one of our beaches. Charter a schooner for a lovely sail on one of our bays. Hunt for antiques in our villages. The days are getting longer, so you can do more of all the more there is to do in Maine in the spring.
Maine lobster bake on the beach anyone? How about attending one of the dozens of summer festivals held throughout the state during the warm months? Golf at a lakeside course? How about eating blueberries – lots of them – either by the handful or in a delicious blueberry pie?
Rent a bicycle. Rent a sailboat. Rent a car and drive along our Scenic Byways. Go river rafting (or loll down a slow river in an inner tube).
