Activities at the Falls

“If you don’t like the weather in Maine…wait five minutes”

All Mainers know that you just can’t count on our weather to stay the same for any reasonable period of time.  That’s why we will always try to run the majority of our activities as scheduled, rain or shine, warm or cold.

Beach Rentals for the week
Get your beach chairs, shade tents, beach caddies and more!  Get your rentals from the Activities Office upstairs from the Lobby. Rentals are cash only and cannot be charged to your room.
