Step aboard the historic steamship Katahdin for a leisurely cruise to enjoy the natural beauty and history of Moosehead Lake. Our abundant wilderness is apparent. The 3-hour cruise travels up the lake 12 miles to its widest part just north of Deer and Sugar Islands, the largest islands on the lake. On a clear day the mountain views are incredible with Mount Katahdin (Maine's largest) in the distance.
The four and one-half hour Mount Kineo cruise travels approximately 20 miles up the lake. At the northern terminus of the trip, the Katahdin passes directly beneath the 800 foot cliffs of Mount Kineo. Peregrine falcons are frequently sighted soaring above the mountain. This area is also the deepest section of the lake at 254 feet.
Tickets can be purchased at the Marine Museum directly next to the dock the day of departure.

Lily Bay Road, the road upon which Blair Hill Inn is located, is designated as a National Scenic Byway because of the intrinsic value of its scenic vistas and its access to the area's best recreational activities. Addtionally, Route 15 from Greenville's center to the town of Jackman is also honored with this national designation. We are happy to chart out the perfect route for you ranging from a 40 minute drive to a 3 hour drive or longer!
Spend time at beautiful Lily Bay State Park. Just a 7 minute drive from Blair Hill, the park sits on the shores of Moosehead Lake looking out across the islands and to the distant mountains. Relax on the sandy beach, take a refreshing swim or stroll along pathways through the woods and by the lakeshore.
Nothing is more relaxing than simply spending the day at Blair Hill Inn. Stroll our grounds and gardens, sit by the trout pond, relax on the verandah with a refreshing drink, schedule an in-room massage, play croquet or bocce ball, read a book, take a bath, or simply breath in the mountain air and watch the sun lower in the sky across Moosehead Lake. Ahhh.
