Fodor's Review

Accessible primarily by steamship, Mt. Kineo House was a thriving upscale summer resort set below its namesake's 700-foot cliff on an islandlike peninsula jutting into Moosehead Lake. The last of three successive hotels with this name was built in 1884 and became America's largest inland waterfront hotel. It was torn down in 1938, but Kineo remains a pleasant day trip. Mt. Kineo State Park occupies most of the 1,200-acre peninsula, with trails to the summit of the spectacular landmark. You can also play a round on Mt. Kineo Golf Course, one of the oldest courses in New England. There is no road access, but you can take a 15-minute boat trip from Rockwood on the golf course's seasonal shuttle.
