Orland is a peaceful, mid-size town nestled in the hills on the east side of the Penobscot River overlooking the Narramissic River and Alamoosook Lake. It is a quintessential New England village, complete with a General Store and a white steepled church. In fact, the village is one of the most photographed areas in Maine. The town of Orland is unique in that it enjoys the advantages of a quiet inland lake town, with easy access to the splendor of the Penobscot Bay. Situated in the heart of Downeast Maine, Orland is an easy day trip to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Alamoosook Lake's peaceful habitat is home to a diverse wildlife population including loons, eagles, ospreys, deer, otter, beaver and even a passing black bear. In addition to wildlife viewing, Alamoosook Lake has great fishing for bass, trout, pickerel and salmon, along with canoeing, kayaking, swimming and just relaxing by the water's edge. In winter months, sports such as ice fishing, cross-country skiing and ice-skating are available. Other attractions in the Orland area include the Craig Brook Fish Hatchery, the oldest hatchery on the East Coast open for tours, and Great Pond Mountain's hiking trails. In late June, the town celebrates Orland River Day on the Narramissic River in historic downtown Orland.

Orland Weather & Climate

Maine enjoys four distinct seasons. In the Penobscot Valley region, near the city of Bangor, there is plenty of clear, sunny weather 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. Temperatures continue to cool through October and November, with wintry weather returning around Thanksgiving. Cold weather settles in around the Penobscot Valley around Thanksgiving. January and February are generally the heart of winter. Below zero temperatures are possible, but infrequent and usually do not last for any 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.
