Temple is a tiny town located in the secluded western mountains and lakes region of Maine near the New Hampshire border. An easy day trip to the city of Portland, this sparsely populated region has long been a favorite hideaway for those seeking the quiet secluded beauty of the mountains. Temple is near rural Rangeley Lake with its' long stretches of pine, beech, spruce and sky, and stylish inns and cozy bed & breakfasts. In summertime, Temple draws visitors to the mountains for boating, fishing, canoeing, hiking, camping and golf. In wintertime, this is ski country. Nearby Carrabassett Valley is home to Sugarloaf USA, a major ski resort with a challenging golf course. Snowmobiling and cross-country skiing are also popular sports in Temple. Other things to do in the area include exploring the country roads; day trips to Angel Falls, Small Falls, and old quarry rock piles, antique shops and Shaker Village. In Temple, you can enjoy a brisk day of outdoor fun, and then relax as you watch a spectacular mountain sunset.
