Hartland is a small, quiet village of approximately 1,000 residents located on the shores of Great Moose Lake and Sebasticook River in central Maine. This is largely a forested, rural area, although several major crossroads intersect within the village of Hartland. Definitely off the beaten path, Hartland is approximately 30 miles from the China Lakes region and just one hour from the city of Portland. It's not the kind of place to come if you're looking for a lot of tourist action - rather it provides a tranquil vacation getaway and rural lifestyle, nestled on a beautiful lake, with lots of outdoor recreational possibilities and no crowds. As part of Somerset County, Hartland is the gateway to the mountains, lakes, rivers and forests of west central Maine and offers four seasons of outdoor fun. In the warmer months of the year, Great Moose Lake provides swimming, boating, fishing, water skiing and wind surfing. In the wintertime, Hartland is near miles of groomed snowmobile and cross-country skiing trails, and has easy access to area ski resorts, including the famous Sugarloaf Ski Area. Just a few miles from Hartland is Sebasticook Lake and the town of Newport, with its' vibrant downtown area filled with unique shops and restaurants.

Hartland Weather & Climate

Central Maine , in the area known as the Maine Highlands, enjoys four distinct seasons. The Penobscot Valley region has plenty of clear, sunny days in summer, with nights cool enough to provide a welcome relief from the warm days. Brisk, sunny days and cool nights in September prepare for what is the favorite season for many in Maine. The spectacular colors of fall draw lots of visitors to the area. Temperatures continue to cool down through October and November, with wintry weather returning around Thanksgiving. Cold weather settles in around Thanksgiving. January and February are generally the coldest months of winter. Below zero temperatures are possible, but infrequent and usually do not last for a very long period of time. Temperatures begin to increase in March, with a corresponding increase in humidity. The Bangor area receives approximately 85 inches of snow a year, most of it occurring in eight to ten measurable storms per year.
