Join this weekend retreat to Borestone Mountain Sanctuary, located just 20 miles south of Moosehead Lake. There we will stay in the sanctuary’s historic Adirondack style lodges, which are accessible only by boat or on foot, lending an extra sense of remoteness and tranquility to this special place.

Hike and learn in this 1600-acre North Woods preserve with outstanding natural features. Centered around rock-topped Borestone Mountain, the sanctuary encompasses remarkable granite outcroppings and cliffs, clear mountain ponds, and old growth forest stands carpeted by luxuriant mosses and lichens.
