Escape to a tranquil place where the crowds are scarce—a place where you can truly disconnect and reset. Bowerbank may not be at the top of many Maine travel bucket lists, but that’s exactly what makes it so special. If you’re imagining your next vacation spot to be surrounded by forests and lakes, then our Bowerbank vacation rentals are calling.
It’s no understatement that Bowerbank is a small town. The last census recorded a population of less than 200 residents. But that’s exactly why you’re coming here: to get away from the crowds. It’s about two hours north of Augusta, in the center of Maine, and is bordered by the lush forests of Baxter State Park and sparkling Sebec Lake.
During your visit to Bowerbank, a trip to Sebec Lake is a must. These 10 miles of cool, clear waters are just minutes away from town, and the sandy beaches are the perfect place to spend an afternoon. Enjoy beautiful views of Borestone Mountain as you picnic or splash with your loved ones. Local companies offer boat rentals for a day on the water just relaxing or fishing.
If you’re the outdoorsy type, that same Borestone Mountain is a great place to hike and explore. A moderate three-and-a-half-mile trail will take you up to beautiful panoramas of the lake below, surrounded by gently rolling mountains. If you just can’t get enough, there are over 200 miles of hikeable trails in Baxter State Park for every skill level—all you have to do is find your favorite. And at the end of a long day outdoors, you can relax in the comfort of your vacation home.
Take a load off for a weekend—or longer—at one of our Bowerbank vacation rentals. This sleepy little town is surrounded by pristine nature and is the perfect place to reset and unwind. Explore our homes in this area to start planning your Maine getaway.
