Exploring Maine

Located in the center of the Lakes and Mountains region of Maine and just 25 miles from Portland, your home base at Bayview Cabins in Naples puts you in easy reach of many attractions and activities.

Drive northwest through Bridgton to Fryeburg, home to Fryeburg Academy and the Blue Ribbon Fryeburg Fair (early October). You’ll quietly cross into New Hampshire to reach outlet shopping in North Conway and the auto road to the peak of Mount Washington.

Drive south to Portland: Maine’s largest city is rich with history, the lively Old Port waterfront district, and a hotspot for foodies.

From Portland, make a short drive south to Portland Head Lighthouse or to the beach in Scarborough, or drive north to the coastal shopping mecca Freeport, home of LL Bean and numerous other shops.



Schedule your Maine vacation at Bayview Cabins to take advantage of the great local and nearby events.
