Northwestern Maine is sparsely populated, but the pristine wilderness is what draws visitors from all over the nation. The heart of the region is the scenic Kennebec Valley, and near the international border with Canada is the town of Jackman, once nothing more than a stop on a trade route but now a major tourist destination for Jackman timeshares.
Set amongst dense pine and spruce forest that surround silver-surfaced lakes, the town is situated on the famous Old Canada Road that links this region and Quebec City. Historical landmarks abound, and visitors are treated to some of the finest apples, woodcraft products, and recreational sites in all of New England. Also located in and around town are several top-quality resorts and hotels, open all year including during the winter ski and snowmobile season.

Things to Do
In winter, Jackman is a sportsman and outdoor enthusiast's paradise. Snowshoeing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, and cross-country skiing are popular activities. In summer, trout fishing, hiking, and nature photography top the activities list. On the outskirts of town is the Attean View Rest Area, the place to stretch out for a while and relax while getting the first glimpse of scenic Attean Lake and its surrounding ponds.
A terrific view of the Moose River Valley is gained from a vantage point on the same highway. Visitors get the sense of open space and spectacular scenery even before heading into the wilderness.
Fantastic Outdoor Fun
Moose River is also popular with canoeing and kayaking enthusiasts. A two-day trip down the river with return transportation can be arranged in Jackman. After a day of fun on the lakes or in the forest, families, couples, or friends groups can relax at one of the fine eateries in town. Local farms in the region supply the produce, and the apple orchards in the surrounding counties are a major draw. Visitors can even plan an apple-picking excursion during the late summer and early fall.
A spectacular car trip for those who really love to view the natural beauty of the region means heading along the highway to the international border and on to Quebec City. It's especially nice during the early fall when the oak and maple leaves change from green to red, brown, and yellow.
For those wanting to visit by car during the winter, keep in mind that some of the highways in this part of the state are temporarily closed for snow removal.
Where to Stay
Cabins and luxurious resort suites are available at any time of the year. Some of these lodgings offer private suite ownership, and interested parties can view the availability via the Jackman timeshare resale market. Guaranteed reservations year after year and access to all of the on-site amenities are reasons to consider vacation ownership at one of these accommodations properties.
The Kennebec Valley and surrounding region is absolutely beautiful at any time of the year. Solitude and natural beauty make Jackman and the entire valley an especially memorable place to spend a quality vacation.
