While there is still plenty of summer left to enjoy, it’s never too early to start planning your autumn escape. There’s something almost magical about visiting Linekin Bay Resort and Midcoast Maine on a fall vacation. This historic region filled with charming seaside communities is the ideal place for everyone, from couples to families.
To have the perfect fall escape, some planning needs to be done ahead of time. Putting in the extra work before arriving at our resort near Boothbay Harbor means you can spend more time having fun and less worrying about the small details.
1. Reserve Your Accommodations
When you choose our Maine family resort as your home base, you have a number of lodging options. We offer four classically-built Maine lodges comprised of guest rooms and suites. These buildings are excellent for large families looking for a place to stay that can accommodate the whole group.
Our property also features Maine cabins nestled in the woods or on the bay’s edge. These spaces give you a type of “camping” you won’t find anywhere else. Some of these cabins are pet-friendly, so your pup can join in on the fun.
2. Research Top Adventures
Fall weather in Midcoast Maine means temperatures that can reach highs in the 50s to 70s. These conditions allow you to spend plenty of time outdoors, but it’s a good idea to research what activities and attractions you want to include on your itinerary. Some of the top outings we suggest include:
- Going for a scenic drive to take in the fall colors
- Embarking on one last whale-watching tour with Cap’n Fish’s Cruises
- Braving a 90-minute ghost tour or history tour from American Ghost Walks
- Checking out local festivals, including the Damariscotta Pumpkinfest or Fall Foliage Festival
- Taking in the beautiful fall foliage at nearby state parks or nature preserves
Some area attractions are seasonal, so be sure to check operating hours to ensure they are, in fact, open.
3. Pack Your Bags
The last thing to do before heading out on your memorable escape is to create and check off your packing list. When visiting in the fall, be sure to pack layers, as temperatures can change drastically throughout the day. In addition to the standard vacation necessities, you’ll also want to have some sort of outerwear, rain gear, and sturdy hiking boots.
