Kennebec Valley

    KENNEBEC VALLEY
    Maine’s Hidden Gem

    The Kennebec Valley is a relatively undiscovered treasure in the heart of central Maine. It has four fabulous seasons; mountains and rolling hills; rivers, streams, and the lakes that feed them; the state capital; and many water-front parks and trails. All of these options provide great vistas to enjoy in all four seasons. The Winthrop Lakes and Belgrade Lakes Regions boast more than a dozen lakes and ponds. Augusta, the state’s capital, and the surrounding cities and towns paint a backdrop of light and color throughout the year. From the banks of the beautiful Kennebec River to the many lakes and streams leading to it, the area is blessed with some of the most picturesque locations in the state. There are many conference and convention centers located in Maine’s capital city, with rooms accommodating any size crowd. Local lodging, including several bed and breakfasts, provides plenty of comfortable space for friends and family from away. Restaurants include an eclectic mix of nationwide chains and many homegrown favorites that dot the downtowns. From Belgrade Lakes to Augusta, through downtown Hallowell, and into downtown Gardiner, you can find some incredible food, including southern barbeque, Thai, Italian, award-winning seafood chowder, and so much more. You’ll be surprised with the amount of wonderful choices you have here for your special Maine wedding.
