The Rangeley Lakes Region has it all! Hiking, fishing, ATV rides, boating, museums!

The Legendary Rangeley Lakes Region of the Western Mountains of Maine.

You will always find plenty of outdoor activities in the Rangeley Lakes Region and all are easily accessible when you stay at Loon Lodge. Rangeley also has a thriving arts scene including museums and many unique family events and festivals.

As a summer playground, Rangeley Lake and the other lakes of the Rangeley Lakes Region offer nearly endless opportunities for boating, fishing, kayaking and canoeing spring through fall.  Contact us before your visit to arrange space at our docks during your stay. 

This is also an angler's paradise.  For an incredible guided fly-fishing experience in the Rangeley Lakes and Maine's Western Mountain Regions, we recommend the Orvis certified Bucktail Guide Service. A memorable experience for everyone from beginners to experts. 

If you need almost anything to get the most out of your fishing trip, visit the Rangeley Region Sports Shop for tackle, supplies, guiding and more!  

Golf our local courses Mingo Springs and Evergreen or take a short drive to Sugarloaf Golf course.

If interesting and scenic drives are your thing, the Rangeley Lakes Region features some of the best rides you'll find.  Take the 35-mile Rangeley Scenic Byway which includes what many consider one of the most spectacular views in all of New England; Height of Land.  These are especially spectacular during the Fall Foliage Season. The State of Maine's weekly report can keep you up to date on our fall colors here in The Rangeley Lakes Region and Western Maine.  

If you and your family are off-road enthusiasts, bring your ATVs and side by sides to Rangeley and the Loon Lodge Inn!  With more than 70 miles of trails, we have lots of riding here and within trailering distance of Rangeley.  We have ample parking space for ATVs and trailers.  Visit the Oquossoc ATV Club for more information about our trail system.

Horseback riding, hunting, biking - many more activities and attractions are available for your enjoyment spring, summer or fall.

Rangeley, Maine, weather forecast
"The Loon Lodge dining experience surpassed all expectations! My husband and I split an order of the lamb chops and the mushroom risotto,
and both were fantastic.
The lamb chops were seasoned and cooked to perfection and came with an incredibly flavorful mint sauce that complemented the meat so well. The veggies were also delicious (likely coated in butter) and I appreciated the spices chosen to season the carrots.
The risotto was creamy and the right texture. I appreciated the assortment of mushrooms, tomatoes, and spinach cooked into it.
Finally, we ended on a slice of key lime pie (also perfect)! And shared a warm chocolate bread pudding with his sister and her husband.
(Pro tip: ask for vanilla ice cream with the chocolate bread pudding instead of the default chocolate).
Service was also A+! The server made us feel really welcome and she did a great job accommodating our 4-year-old nephew and 2-year-old niece."

"The Pickford Pub was a perfect Rangeley experience. Sue and her staff are amazing, their goal is to treat you well and to make sure you had the best dining experience possible. We started with a specialty cocktail with muddled blueberries. For the appetizer we had the calamari and for dinner the haddock and shrimp! Thank you again, five stars for service and food."

This was a Phenomenal staycation. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was five star quality. In speaking with the chef we told him how wonderful the food was, his first response was giving credit to all of the kitchen staff. He said he had phenomenal kitchen staff and could not do it without them. The rooms were very nice and very clean. The view from our room was spectacular, looking right out of window to Rangeley Lake.
When we spoke with the manager, I told her how well-run the lodge seemed. Again her first response was giving all of the credit to the staff. My wife and I have not had a vacation for quite a while and could not have asked for a better experience. There are many things to do and places to go. My wife and I do want to recognize our bartender and server Mercedes. My wife says she was incredible and I agree. Our heartfelt thanks to all the staff that made our vacation so memorable.

We had a great stay at Loon Lodge Inn. The room was cozy & clean. The staff is friendly, conscientious & TEAM oriented (wonderful to see them all having each others' back when it got busy). The location is ideal for a weekend of Saddleback skiing...(or snow-sledding or whatever floats your boat)!
Beautiful property. I can only imagine how beautiful it is in summer. Nice to see the history of the region preserved in this way.
Thanks for a great stay.

We loved our stay at Loon Lodge! Super convenient for skiing at Saddleback. The place was very clean and cozy and the staff was kind, welcoming and helpful with information about the area. The warm fireplace and hot cocoa was the perfect thing to come home to after a day of skiing. Great Maine micro-brews on tap at the pub. We look forward to staying again soon!
