4. Rangeley

The traditional New England style town of Rangeley is one of Maine's best small towns because of its rustic ambience and seasoned visitors. You won't find anything cookie cutter about Rangeley, but rather a dozen or more wooden buildings scattered among the lake followed by miles of beautiful scenery that spans for miles. The town is considered barely that, but because of the scenery and natural landscape offered around the village, it is a place worth visiting. Comfortable and inexpensive lodging is offered at the Rangeley Inn and food can be eaten at the popular Red Onion.
