Spring, Summer & Fall
Late spring to early fall are our busiest times of year. Enjoy hanging out by the lake and exploring the natural beauty and unique ecosystems our corner of the world has to offer. Take a trip up to Mount Chase to hike, bike, swim or paddle! Enjoy time away from your phone and Wi-Fi and see what you find.
All of our accommodations are ready to keep you cozy during winter nights. Come on in after a long day in the snow and enjoy a drink by the fireplace before dinner. We have many opportunities to enjoy the snow and peaceful winter woods by snowmobile, snowshoe or cross country ski nearby. Whether you are in Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument or on a sled traveling down ITS 85, we are a perfect place to eat, rest, and enjoy the winter wilderness.
The North gate to Baxter is located just 15 miles from Mt. Chase Lodge. There are over 40 peaks and ridges besides Katahdin in the Park.

Spread across a wild landscape offering spectacular views of Mount Katahdin, Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument invites discovery of its rivers, streams, woods, flora, fauna, geology, and the night skies. All of the monument lands border the eastern side of Baxter State Park and the North Entrance is located just down the road from us here at Mt Chase Lodge.
Penobscot River Trails are a newly-developed trail system alongside the East Branch of the Penobscot River. They have 15 miles of biking trails surfaced with crushed gravel. They also offer mountain bike, snowshoe, and x-country ski rentals, with two warming huts and visitor’s center. In the winter, trails are groomed for classic and skate skiing with designated snowshoe trails.
