Browse Our Spring Vacation Rentals in Rangeley
Our Rangeley vacation rentals come in all sizes and styles. Choose from cozy, rustic looking cabins, spacious vacation homes with vaulted ceilings and tons of extras, wood clad farm houses, log cabins, and storybook looking mountain and lake lodges with water and mountain views.
It’s all about location. Choose suburban vacation homes right in town, or lodges and cabins that are slightly more secluded but are still just minutes from Rangeley. Some of our rentals feature spacious landscaped backyards, large wooded lots, and even a small pond or two.
We have rentals that are minutes from Saddleback Mountain and Rangeley Lake, and many of our vacation rentals are right on the water. While the water may still be a little cold for swimming, it’s perfectly fine for kayaking and canoeing, and with a waterfront rental, you’ll be able to enjoy being out on the water in no time. Many of our rental properties offer views and close access to area lakes, and many offer lakefronts on Haley Pond, Gull Pond, Beaver Mountain Lake, Dodge Pond, Mooselookmeguntic Lake, Rangeley Lake and more. These vacation rentals can feature private docks and many come equipped with kayaks and canoes for your use.
Comfort and All the Amenities You Want
Large porches and decks provide ample space for stargazing and watching the amazing sunsets here in Rangeley. We’re in a dark belt area, so the stars shine brighter here. And then there’s the view. Whether you’ve chosen a quiet lake view or a view of Saddleback or Bald Mountain, we count that as the best amenity.
Of course, you’ll find fully equipped kitchens that include dishwashers, coffee makers, microwaves, blenders and toasters, so you can easily feed your crowd. Flat screen TVs and Wi-Fi in each rental will offer something to do if the weather turns bad, or it’s time for family movie night.
Most of our rentals have gas grills out on the deck, perfect for grilling up some ribs or burgers for the first cookout of the season. Choose spring vacation rentals with Jacuzzi tubs, entertainment/game rooms, window AC units, ceiling fans and radiant heat (because who knows what the weather will do these days), satellite TV, DVD/VCR, outside showers and fire pits. Many have a main bedroom on the main level, which makes it easier for those of us who have bad knees. Many are pet friendly too, so your furry best friend can join in all the fun this Spring in Rangeley.
Springtime Fun in Rangeley
While you can spend all Spring in Rangeley in comfy rental in front of the roaring fireplace, spring is really the best time to head outside. The weather’s warming up and the crowds and bugs aren’t here yet. And the wildflowers are blooming! This is the time to enjoy meadows full of daisies, lilies and lupines, and pretty trillium, Trout Lily and violets that pop up along winding forest trails.
Trails may be a little snowy in places, but hiking is more enjoyable without the seasonal crowds. Waterfall enthusiasts will need to hike the Cascade Stream Gorge Trail, whose shady trail follows the rocky gorge to cascading waterfalls (one of the tallest waterfalls in the state). The short hikes to Small Falls and Angel Falls are kid-friendly and should be on your list too. Hiking to the top of Bald Mountain may be a little rough for younger kids, but they’ll have fun looking for mountain lion and coyote tracks and bald eagles along the way. And, the view from the summit and observation tower is amazing.
Rangeley Lake Region has numerous hiking, birdwatching, wildlife and wildflower viewing opportunities, like the South Bog Conservation Area. Rangeley Lake State Park has over 900 acres of hiking, kayaking, birdwatching, fly-fishing and more. And you just happen to be in the best place to see moose in the country (without heading up to Alaska). Book a guided moose safari, and you’ll be even more apt to see a few of these cool, lumbering creatures.
