Cruise the tranquil waters of Long Lake on a Mississippi River-style paddle-wheeler as a prelude to taking a hay ride through the orchards and fields of a working farm.
After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a leisurely drive inland to the town of Naples, which perches at the end of Long Lake. Here, you will board the Songo River Queen II, a replica of a Mississippi River paddle-wheel boat. You will have plenty of room to settle in and stretch out, as the 93-foot-long boat has two decks, one fully shaded.
As you cruise along the glass-smooth lake, you will take in the gorgeous natural views. In the distance, you will spot Mount Washington, the highest peak in the Northeast, and aptly named Pleasant Mountain close by. Other outstanding sights include Arrowhead Point jutting out from the shoreline and forested Pine Island off Mast Cove.
Along the way, you will be served a lobster roll lunch, a classic Maine dish. Dessert will wait until you arrive at your next destination, Pietree Orchard. Author Tabitha King, wife of author Stephen King, owns this working farm, which has been operating for nearly 80 years.
You will enjoy an authentic farm experience by taking a leisurely hay ride through the property. The driver will describe the environmentally friendly farming methods and the fruits and produce that flourish here
