The Katahdin Region

If you’re moving to or from Maine’s beautiful Moosehead Lake or Katahdin region, trust MaineMoving to be your Maine Highlands mover.

Moving to the Katahdin Region

When legendary painter and native son Marsden Hartley first viewed Mount Katahdin, he described it as “exceeding all my expectations so far that I am sort of helpless with words.” Good thing he brought along the paint and brushes.  As Maine’s highest peak, Katahdin has attracted artists, adventurers, and lovers of the natural world for centuries. Like Mount Katahdin, Maine’s largest lake, nearby Moosehead, offers legendary experiences of its own for visitors with each new day. Let us move you here!

The history of the Katahdin Region is older than the state of Maine itself. For centuries, the Penobscot Tribes hunted and fished this land in harmony with the seasons. The first colonial settlers arrived in the mid-1700s, establishing frontier outposts along the area’s major rivers.

Lumber was the driving force behind much of the development of the state in the 19th century. The seemingly endless forest was of enormous value to an expanding America and mills, foundries and other subsidiary industries soon developed in the wake of the logging boom. This helped the area’s towns flourish.

Today, the Katahdin Area provides fantastic individual and family experiences for wildlife and wilderness enthusiasts. At the northern end of the Appalachian Trail sits Mount Katahdin, the state’s highest point at 5,267 feet, the queen of Baxter State Park. The park alone covers more than 200,000 acres of mountains, lakes, streams, and forests, offering great opportunities for canoeists and kayakers. Wildlife observers get the chance to see deer, moose, and black bears, so come prepared!

The Lincoln Lakes Region

The Lincoln Lakes Region of The Maine Highlands is a must-see! As locals often say, “All roads lead to Lincoln.” Those roads often lead to hunting. With some of the best hunting in the state, an abundance of wildlife and waterfowl populate the area making your chances of getting the “big one” pretty good.

The smaller towns of the Lincoln Lakes Region, Burlington, Carroll, Chester, Enfield, Howland, Lakeville, Lee, Lincoln, Mattamiscontis, Mattawamkeag, Passadumkeag, Prentiss, Seboeis, Springfield, Topsfield, West Enfield, Webster Plantation, and Winn, are a sightseer’s dream!

The Moosehead Lake Region

Moving to the Moosehead Lake Region

Nestled among scenic mountain ranges, Moosehead Lake’s island-studded waters stretch as far as the eye can see. Being the largest lake in Maine, Moosehead Lake is surrounded by vast forested wilderness. It boasts some of the finest moose watching in the country.

This region has an expansive, well-documented history. In the early 1900s, Moosehead Lake was the premier vacation destination for many that wanted to escape the heat, noise, and crowds of city life. These fashionable visitors arrived by train and summered at the grand hotels perched on the shores of Moosehead Lake’s clear blue waters.

There are many ways to experience the wonders of the Moosehead Lake Region. Explore the lake by kayak or canoe, fly fishing, relax on a scenic cruise on the historic steamship, Katahdin, or feel the adrenaline rush of shooting the rapids on our world-class whitewater rafting rivers. The region also has many other outdoor recreation opportunities like mountain biking, skiing, snowmobiling, ATV riding, ice climbing, and hiking. Of course, there’s some of the best wildlife watching available.

Sebasticook Valley

The Sebasticook Valley area rounds out the Highlands. This is a water sports enthusiast’s playground! All towns in the region sit on a major water body, including Big Indian Lake, Corundel Lake, Etna Pond, Great Moose Lake, Lake Wassookeag, Nokomis Pond, Pleasant Lake, Plymouth Pond, Sebasticook Lake, and Sebasticook River. History buffs will appreciate the many historical sites that date back to the 1800s. A great example is the 1898 Levi Stewart Library building in Corinna, a working clock tower and belfry.
