Rangeley Lakes – Maine’s Four Seasons Resort Area

Located in an area consisting of 99% forest and water, lies Maine’s western mountains and the six Rangeley Lakes. The Town of Rangeley, Oquossoc Village, Dallas Plantation, Rangeley Plantation and Sandy River Plantation comprise the regions settlements. The year ’round population of approximately 1,500+ inhabitants swells to almost 10,000 during the popular summer tourist season.

A great place to raise a family, retire and an ideal vacation destination for every season, this resort area offers a multitude of activities for both young and old. Spring ushers in the fishing season with trophy-sized Salmon and Brook Trout, along with abundant wildlife and wildflowers.

Scenic highways and hiking trails, including the Appalachian Trail, lead to panoramic overlooks and sight-seeing flights offer unparalled views during the summertime. September welcomes the Autumn season with some of the most beautiful fall foliage in the country, while bountiful game including moose, deer and upland birds beckon the advent of the hunting season. By November, snow blankets the region, signaling the start to alpine ski season and the opening of Rangeley’s Saddleback Ski area. Groomed village and mountain nordic paths and snowmobile trails are open by December, offering snowmobilers some of the best riding in the Northeast.

For vacationers, the towns of Rangeley and Oquossoc both offer a varied array of accommodations, including hotels, maine vacation rental cabins, cottages, homes, condos and townhouses, inns, bed & breakfasts, Maine sporting camps and campgrounds. Those who have visited Rangeley can attest: once you have explored this beautiful area, you will want to return again and again.

Rangeley restaurants feature everything from pizza to lobster, while delis serve up all the essentials for a picnic in the great outdoors. Rangeley area services and shops provide the visitor with all the necessities needed for their vacation, in addition to a wonderful selection of sporting goods and gifts.
