Cruise aboard the Katahdin Steamship

Step aboard the historic steamship Katahdin for a leisurely cruise to enjoy the natural beauty and history of Moosehead Lake.  Our abundant wilderness is apparent.  The 3-hour cruise travels up the lake 12 miles to its widest part just north of Deer and Sugar Islands, the largest islands on the lake. On a clear day the mountain views are incredible with Mount Katahdin (Maine’s largest) in the distance.

The four and one-half hour Mount Kineo cruise travels approximately 20 miles up the lake.  At the northern terminus of the trip, the Katahdin passes directly beneath the 800 foot cliffs of Mount Kineo.  Peregrine falcons are frequently sighted soaring above the mountain. This area is also the deepest section of the lake at 254 feet.

Tickets can be purchased at the Marine Museum directly next to the dock the day of departure.

Lily Bay State Park

Spend time at beautiful Lily Bay State Park.  Just a 7 minute drive from Blair Hill, the park sits on the shores of Moosehead Lake looking out across the islands and to the distant mountains.  Relax on the sandy beach, take a refreshing swim or stroll along pathways through the woods and by the lakeshore.

A Day at Blair Hill Inn

Nothing is more relaxing than simply spending the day at Blair Hill Inn. Stroll our grounds and gardens, sit by the trout pond, relax on the verandah with a refreshing drink, play croquet or bocce ball, read a book, take a bath, or simply breath in the mountain air and watch the sun lower in the sky across Moosehead Lake.
