Seasons of Maine


Maine hosts some of the best skiing on the eastern seaboard.

 

You have your choice between the series mountain for the aggressive skier or the family slopes that everyone can enjoy.

Museums, restaurants and shopping still await after your day in the snow.

Winter hiking is also a fun challenge, or take the easy way and rent some cross country skis’ and work your way through miles of trails.

For local X-country Skiing we suggest you first look at Smiling Hill Farm. Located only a few minutes away and boasting miles of groomed trails.

Pick up some cheese and ice cream while you're there too.

Spring time in Maine. 

 

What the locals call mud season.  

Mud season occurs when the top 48” of soil unfreezes and turns to soup.

Many a small child has disappeared into the mud soup only to be found again midsummer. Until mud season ends, generally hiking can be out of the question. 

But if you don’t mind staying on the manmade terra firma, catch Maine Maple Sunday, the last Sunday in March when the Sap houses are boiling the Maple sap creating pure sweet gold.

Locals crawl out of their winter slumber to attend and stand in line for hot pancakes, fresh syrup and local sausage. Some will browse through the boil house chatting with the master syrup maker as he tends the fire beneath the boiler.

Here in Gorham we boast of the two most wonderful places to spend Maine Maple Sunday. Merrifield Farm is worth the wait in line followed by a visit to Sebago Lake Ranch's Sap House both a short drive from the PineCrest Inn. This is a family friendly event. Kind of reminds you of ground hogs day when the big rat sees the sun for the first time all winter.

Other yearly events to look for at the Spring flower shows and of course the pre summer sales at LL Beans are also not to be missed. Museums, restaurants and other non seasonal attractions still are worth the visit.

Spring is a great time for good weather, great food and few crowds. Late spring skiing is also available but you want to call first.

Summer in Maine is from August 4th to August 7th.

 

The rest of the time is another season that warrants a new name.

Summer brings out all the seasonal activities and water sports. Kayak, canoe, boating, sailing, hiking, mountain climbing, biking, touring islands, swimming and just plain relaxing are all on the short list of the traveler.

Plan your trip around one of several amazing festivals, Lobster Festival, Falmouth Clam Festival, Blues festivals, blue grass festivals, road races like the Beach to Beacon 10K and the tri for cure triathlon.The PineCrest Inn is conveniently located near each.

Maine is one of the few places like it on planet earth. The average high sometimes hits mid 80’s but the cooling effect the ocean creates an amazing evenings.  No matter how hot the days get. And the humidity never gets truly oppressive. 

Touring the Islands, Lighthouses, beaches and state parks are a must do for your itinerary.

I honestly believe that summer in Maine is exactly what God intended our weather to be. As perfect as it gets.

If you have never seen the leaves change in New England, put this on your bucket list.

 

When the temperature drops to a nice chill at night, the leaves start to change to yellows, orange, purple, red, brown and a whole mix of shades.

The leaves change first in the elevations and low lying areas, then they move southward and to the coastal areas last. The Islands turn even later, sometimes almost a week or two later.

Timing the perfect color tour can be challenging but from your location at the PineCrest you can find a short drive to either the elevated areas or coastal, so if there is color somewhere, we can help you find it.

The fall activities include leaf peeping tours, museums, restaurants, shopping, state parks, lighthouses, some on the most gorgeous coastline tours imaginable.

Fewer people are visiting in the Fall so taking your time to really soak in the beauty of the state is in order. Long walks in the woods, stroll on the near empty beaches or a stroll through the cobble stone streats of Old Port will fill your soul and leave you wanting more.
