Are you thinking of spending Thanksgiving 2023 in Rangeley? We don’t blame you! There are so many reasons why you would flock to this beautiful mountain town this November. Not only can you enjoy the pristine outdoor weather, but you can spend some quality time with your loved ones that you wouldn’t be able to otherwise in a crowded city or an overpriced resort town. 

Rangeley, in the picturesque state of Maine, offers the best of the best. You can be close to the amenities and the attractions you would find in a bigger city, while you can still enjoy the solitude and peace that comes with being in the wilderness. Just keep reading to see all of the reasons why you should stay with us (the premier property management and rental business in the state) and why you will absolutely love spending some quality time in this northeastern paradise. 

Guide to Thanksgiving 2023 in Rangeley

First thing is first — the number one activity for you and your family or friends this upcoming holiday season is definitely to hit the trails and go hiking! Even if you are not a big fan of being out in the wild, there are easy walks, treks, and paved paths that are ideal for people of all skill and fitness levels. 

We recommend doing Smalls Falls if you are a new hiker who is interested in heading outside for their first hike. This easy, 0.5-mile trail takes just around 20 minutes and has an elevation gain of less than 35 feet, making it easy for older individuals, younger children, or those who just want a fast and pretty walk for a post-Thanksgiving meal exercise-filled afternoon. Smalls Falls offers tons of high and low viewpoints that are easily accessible from the convenient parking lot in Rangeley. 

Secondly, you can’t go hiking in Rangeley, Maine, without going on a trip to the Bald Mountain hiking rail! This moderate, 2.3-mile trail is slightly longer than Smalls Falls and takes around 1 hour to complete. We love this hike as an early morning trail run or workout before a huge Thanksgiving dinner with your family. We think that Bald Mountain is good for moderate hiking with a sprightly family or young couple who want to start the holiday off on the right foot!  

Lastly, Saddleback Mountain is a MUST-do for those who are confident in their exercise and navigation skills! This amazing hike offers pristine views over the nearby valley and provides a difficult hike on a 6-mile trail that takes you more than 1,700 feet from the trailhead! This strenuous hike is great for seeing the incredible peaks and hills surrounding the ski Lodge in Maine.  

Eat a Romantic Meal with Your Partner 

If you come to Rangeley for Thanksgiving, chances are you are coming with your family or your partner. We think that one of the best spots for you to head to for a romantic evening with your partner is The Furbish Brew. We love coming here with our friends for a few pints of beer or with our family for a fun and relaxing meal. Start the tasty and filling lunch or dinner with the tater kegs, a twist on classic tater tots featuring crispy potatoes stuffed with chives, cheese, and bacon. You can also try the mozzarella cheese curds with honey mustard or the nachos with creamy melted cheese! Then, try one of the handheld sandwiches, like the Maple BBQ Brisket with rick oven brisket and pickled red onions. Or, your kids can split one of the wood-fired pizzas if they are picky eaters!  

Check Out the Thanksgiving Events 

Once you’re done finding the perfect hike and meal for a post-hike grub, we recommend going to one of the yearly Rangeley events that are sure to keep you entertained and interested in coming back next year! Head to the Downtown Farmer’s Market in Rangeley to pick up some fresh produce, find some souvenirs to bring back home to your friends, and grab some last-minute Thanksgiving needs. This farmer’s market is held every Thursday from November onwards from 10 am to 2 pm on Main Street.  

Next, you need to check out the Small Business Saturday in downtown Rangeley to help support local businesses and find a few trinkets to bring back home. Head here on Saturday, November 25th, to help support businesses, get your free tote bag, and enter the drawing for special prizes!  

Are you looking to spend a relaxing and stress-free holiday away from the bustling city life? If so, Maine is the place for you! We know that it can be hard to find a spacious and modern property that is big enough for you and all your friends, but still be cozy at the same time. That is where we come in handy! 

Morton and Furbish Vacation Rentals offers large and luxurious log cabins in Maine that offer the cozy vibe of a log cabin, with the modern amenities of a new condo. We know that staying in a hotel and hostel can sometimes be fast to book online, but you are often separated from your group and lack amenities that you find in nice homes and houses. That is why we think the Pine Valley home in a tucked away location is a peaceful and relaxing spot for you and your friends or family to stay in this upcoming holiday season.  

Property Walkthrough: Pine Valley

Not only will you have ample interior space in this wooden and cozy cabin for you and your friends, but you can head outside and toss the ball to your dog in the front yard, go for a hike with your kids, or just sit outside and enjoy the fresh breeze on your face. The front deck is also a great spot to sit outside with a glass of wine and watch the sun go down after a long day of exploring, whitewater rafting, canoeing, and other outdoor activities.  

Cozy Interior Space

As soon as you step foot into the home, you may never want to leave! The living room is a large and cozy space that offers wooden flooring, wooden walls, and plush furniture. The living room also has a trundle bed with two twin beds that we think are great for teenagers, kids, or solo travelers.  

If you want to wind down after a long day of traveling and exploring the nearby woods, then just flick on the DirecTV to watch your favorite show, open up one of the complimentary books to broaden your knowledge, or bring out a board game to play with your family. 

Sleeping Spaces

Are you tired after a long day of hiking, biking, or shopping in the nearby towns? We don’t blame you! This fun and exciting area is great for relaxing, but also for pushing yourself to the limit with outdoor sports. In that case, it might be time to hit the hay early. Head to one of the two bedrooms to curl up in the cozy bedding and get a full 8 hours of sleep.  

The first bedroom has a large queen bed with plush bedding that is great for chilling out and curling up under the covers. Even the second bedroom offers ample sleeping space that is ideal for relaxing, having sweet dreams, and planning your next day.  

Kitchen and Dining

We offer plenty of dining areas that are great for you and your guests to chill out, relax, have a few snacks, and drink with one another. The two chairs on the back deck area are great for a happy hour drink as the sun goes down through the pine trees. The dining room table is the perfect spot to have a family meal or a romantic dinner with your loved one as you chat about your day. You can also sit on the front deck and peer out at the incredible nature as you have a casual lunch or a filling breakfast before you start your day.  


Our rental also has amazing amenities that you won’t find in other bland hotels, busy hostels, or crowded Airbnb homes! Our beautiful house offers a back deck area that we love for happy hour and spending time with our loved ones as the sun goes down in the evening.  

You can also make full use of the fast WiFi, which is great for taking a conference call, working on your laptop, or fielding a Zoom meeting as you are on vacation. Other amenities that we love to use during our stay here is the fire pit to make s’mores and cozy up under the blustery and windy winter night. You can even use our private garage area if you have a rental car, so you can rest assured no weather or animal will scratch or harm your vehicle!  

Doesn’t this sound like the ideal spot for you to chill out, relax, and become one with nature? We think so too! If the city is looking a little too busy right now, we don’t blame you. Instead of fighting for a crowded hotel room, check out our Pine Valley house on a little dirt road close to downtown Oquossoc. We love this charming and idyllic property for groups of up to 4 people.  Contact us to book your stay today!

Are you in the mood to go to a remote cabin and truly decompress from the stresses of your daily life? We don’t blame you! We know that your social life, school, or work can be too time-consuming and demanding every single day. At times, I just want to get away and have a solo trip by myself that offers proximity to beautiful nature, a relaxing atmosphere, and a comfortable accommodation option that is ideal for you and a few of your best friends.  

Check out Idlewood Cabin #3, a spacious and comfortable cabin that offers tons of room for you and 4 other people to comfortably sleep, spend time with one another, play board games, and explore the local area. This bright red cabin looks like the traditional cabin that you may see in movies, offering outdoor space, a bright red exterior, modern amenities, and comfortable furnishings that are great for relaxing, decompressing, and spending quality time with one another.  

Property Walkthrough: Idlewood Cabin #3

One of the main draws of this property is the interior space. The wooden ceilings, wooden walls, and laid-back vibe offer the perfect relaxing atmosphere that you’re looking for when it comes to spending time with one another and bonding over a board game, reading a book, or sharing stories. Sit on one of the cozy chairs or couches to prop your feet up after a long hike and chat with your mates.  

You can also turn on the TV and watch a movie or your favorite show to decompress after a long travel day. We love the kitschy vibe of the cabin that is truly reminiscent of a typical log cabin, providing the perfect peaceful atmosphere you want on a getaway!  

Plus, the interior style and the ladder leading up to the bedroom are a fun and cool architectural design that you won’t find in other cabins or accommodation options in the nearby area. The wooden ladder up to the second bedroom makes the most use of the cabin without intruding into the common space.  

Dining Room

The dining room table is ideally situated right in the middle of the living room area and the kitchen, providing guests with a convenient spot to sit and have dinner with one another, play board games, work remotely on their laptops, and gaze out of the window. We like sitting at the dining room table to have a happy hour drink with our friends. We also love dating here and playing a game of cards with our friends during a rare rainy day. This dining room table is large enough for you and three other people!  


The older adults, or the couple that books the getaway cabin, can use the master bedroom that is right off the living room. The cute and cozy master bedroom offers a large and plush bed, soft pillows, and light linens that provide guests with ample warmth and comfort during a winter night. Plus, the window in the bedroom can help you naturally wake up to the light streaming in through the window on a hot summer day.  

The younger children, or other couples who are staying in the cabin, can stay in the fun and exciting loft area! We love this loft area that is accessible via the ladder for teenagers or kids who want privacy without being completely separated from the group in the living room. The living room also features a pull-out sofa that you can use for a couple who wants to snuggle with one another and have access to the bathroom and kitchen without intruding on the master bedroom. 

Convenient and Modern Kitchen

Lastly, the cabin offers a convenient and modern kitchen that we love for cooking simple food, making a large breakfast spread, whipping up cocktails for your guests, or storing snacks that you can access after a long day of hiking, biking, or skiing. The kitchen offers tons of appliances and modern amenities that are great for making dinners and saving money during your holiday!  

Use the standard coffee maker in the morning to make a fresh pot of coffee for you to wake up easily and quickly. Pour a cup of coffee and head to the outside area to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature.  

Add-ons and Features

You can also bring your dog on this vacation and take beloved Fido outside early in the morning to go for a walk around the property and play a game of fetch. Make use of good cell phone reception to stay in touch with your friends back home and send photos to your family who are wondering about your vacation. We also love using the DVD players and the old DVDs to watch an old-school movie after a long day of being out and about in the surrounding nature!
