If you and your family are the outdoorsy types, we have the place for you – Birches Resort nestled in an 11,000 acre nature preserve on the Moosehead Lake in Maine. Built in the 1930s as a hunting and fishing retreat, the family-owned property now boasts many different accommodations from quaint lodge rooms to modern vacation homes to yurts for the true wilderness buff. From this home base you can enjoy all the adventure Maine’s Great North Woods has to offer. In the winter, try exploring trails on cross country skis, snow shoes or by snowmobile. In the summer, there’s whitewater rafting, kayaking, fishing, hiking and mountain biking. The registered professional Maine guides on site are there to help you get the most from your stay – and there is even a plane service. Plus, if you get hungry from all the activities, the restaurant overlooking the lake has hearty meals to get you fueled up and ready to get back out there.
