Maine offers a myriad of engaging seasonally-driven experiences that Cliff House Maine strives to optimize to provide all of our guests the opportunity to own a moment in time, unique to the destination. Whether this activity be a maritime adventure or a leisurely experience, you will find everything you're looking for in Southern Maine. Adventure seekers will find excitement in sailing the Maine coastline, learning to surf the waves, or biking down a wooded single-track trail on a mountain bike. Kayaking, fishing, and horseback riding provide more leisurely excursions. These experiences and others will allow you to experience New England's charms and adventures up close.
We are happy to connect you with trusted vendors and the very best local adventure centers -- getting there is a cinch if you have your own transportation. Should you decide to stay in Maine without securing your own transportation, we advise you to contact our concierge team directly at 207-361-6245 to assist in arranging for transportation, as traditional means of transport such as taxi, Uber, and Lyft are not readily available in Maine.
