5 Steps to Planning the Ideal Winter Getaway in Maine

October 4th, 2018 by Roy Forsberg

“There is nothing in the world more beautiful than the forest clothed to its very hollows in snow. It is the still ecstasy of nature, wherein every spray, every blade of grass, every spire of reed, every intricacy of twig, is clad with radiance.” -William Sharp

1. Find the Perfect Destination

Step one is easy because you’ve already found the perfect place for a winter getaway – Maine! New England winters are wondrous and whimsical. Snow gently falls throughout the day and the pleasant chill in the air mixed with the rich pine scent of trees evoke memories of winters past. Whether you’re escaping from an area that isn’t blessed with four seasons or you just want a new place to explore, then Poland, Maine is the perfect choice.

3. Get Ready to Rest & Relax

Winter is the perfect time to unwind and warm up. Hunker down in your room or find another cozy spot at our Inn to take a load off and just be. Take a hot bath or enjoy a hot cup of hot cocoa by the fire as you reconnect with your partner, read a book, or just simply relax. If you want to spend your time indoors and stay warm, browse some charming local antique shops like Poland House and Gifts and The Barn, and search for one-of-a-kind treasures. If you’ll be staying with us before the holidays, you can take some time to do some leisurely gift shopping and be sure to check out The Willows – a must-visit for those on the hunt for that “hard to buy” person on your list or guests interested in exploring Maine’s largest flea market and antique venue. Finish your fun winter days dining at one of the wonderful local restaurants we recommend or embark on our Libations Trail Tour, perfect for those wanting to be led to the best of the best.
