Explore The Maine Outdoors - Bear Mountain Inn

Explore The Maine Outdoors

If being outdoors is your kind of getaway, then Bear Mountain Inn and the Barn in the lakes region of Waterford, Maine, should be your destination! Nestled at the base of Bear Mountain abutting the lake, Bear Mountain Inn is the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate after a day of outdoor fun!

After a hearty Bear Mountain Inn breakfast, hit the property’s trails for a leisurely walk along the stream  or head to the nearby mountains for more a bit more challenging hike. You can choose from moderate to challenging terrain, including some of the most treacherous miles of Maine’s Appalachian Trail section. Take a short hike, or spend the day exploring the mountains. You’ll be taken in by the beauty of Maine and the spectacular mountain top views, and you may even spot some wildlife! If you want to see the top of Mt. Washington but the hike is too much, take your car up Mt. Washington Auto Road to see the views from the Northeast’s highest peak at 6,288 feet.

If you don’t see any wildlife, visit the bison and tour the farm for a fun experience your whole family will love.  

The fish seem to always be biting at the pond! Cast your line with borrowed poles from the Inn from the shore or jump in one of our kayaks, canoes or paddle boards. Motor boat rentals are also available at nearby Long Lake or Sebago. In the warmer months, take a refreshing swim!

Horseback riding stables are a short drive away; you can take in some car racing at the Oxford Plains Speedway, or golf at one of the nearby beautifully groomed golf courses.

Whatever you choose to do, Bear Mountain Inn and the Barn is waiting for your return where you can enjoy cocktails on the deck overlooking the lake or take a dip in the hot tub.   

From animals to train rides, the area surrounding Bear Mountain Inn has it all to entertain everyone you’re traveling with.
