Rediscover a simpler way of life during your stay. While maintaining the building’s historic pedigree, we’ve been careful not to add too much modern clutter. While we did install powerful high-speed Internet connectivity, as well as TVs and phones, the big benefit of this place is the serenity that comes from living quietly with nature. It is hard to spend a day here and not be struck by the beauty of the surrounding environment.
Visit Kingfield in the winter to ski Sugarloaf and Saddleback, snowmobile directly from our back yard to the Black Fly Loop, which connects to hundreds of miles of scenic trails, or find a winter wonderland snowshoeing atop the Bigelow Mountains. When you return to the Inn, cozy up in front of the glowing fireplace with a warm beverage.
The spring, summer and fall bring even more opportunities to explore Kingfield and Western Maine. Hike along the magnificent, newly developed Maine Huts and Trails system or follow the scenic routes of the Appalachian Trail through the Bigelow Preserve toward Mt. Katahdin. Raft down the roaring rapids of the Kennebec River, or fly-fish on the banks of the Dead River. It is said the best trout fishing in the area is from our bend in the river, just behind the inn. Paddle around nearby Flagstaff Lake or take a dip in the cool waters of the Carrabasset River. Bring your ATV and connect directly from our parking lot to miles of trails.
The Inn on Winter’s Hill was originally built as a romantic gesture; the original owner, Amos Winter Sr., built the property as a wedding gift for his wife Julia. The beautiful indoor spaces and outdoor tent space can accommodate intimate gatherings or grand receptions. Our distinctive venue is the perfect setting for an elegant wedding laced with historic charm.
Our size is just right for couples that want to rent the whole facility for the luxury of having only your friends and family around. We cooperate with the other three inns in town if you need to house a larger group.
