April is the month that spring comes to life, schools take a vacation, and families are looking for a way to be outdoors after a long winter. Bear Mountain Inn and the Barn in Waterford, ME is an oasis for spring family fun.

It’s where families can stay in a quaint setting that feels like a home away from home, with so much to do outside the kids will forget they brought their electronics. With 25-acres surrounding the inn, kids will delight in using their imagination as they explore the 25-acres. Order a picnic lunch and embark on a family hike on the many well-marked trails through the woods. While April is too cold to swim, it’s never too cold for the fish to bite! Bear Mountain Inn provides fishing poles for kids to try their hand at casting at the serene lake at the edge of the property. Watch their excitement as they reel in a fish or two! If you prefer to be on the lake, try out the kayaks or canoes! Just a short drive from the Inn are stables for horseback trail riding.

If that all sounds like too much activity for you, settle into the adirondack chairs and watch your kids play on the sprawling lawn. Escape for a shopping trip in nearby Bridgton or North Conway where you’ll find outlets, local hand-craft shops and antiquing. Head out for a drive just a bit over an hour from Waterford to Portland or Freeport, ME for a variety of historical sites and shopping. Enjoy a movie at one of the nearby theaters, or challenge your family to a game of miniature golf. Enjoy dining at any one of the area restaurants offering cuisine to satisfy everyone.

End your day with a fire and s’mores at the Inn or a family soak in the hot tub.

Bear Mountain Inn and the Barn, an inn for all seasons, will give your family a vacation they’ll remember, begging to come back again!
