Glamping is the ideal solution for those who long to get outdoors and back to nature without having to relinquish all their home comforts. There are many campgrounds in Maine which offer glamping in one form or another. Not all glamping accommodation is offered in tents – often you can enjoy your up-scale camping experience from the comfort of a basic cabin, trailer or even a replica settlers’ wagon. Some glamping experiences are pretty basic and you will need to do all your cooking on the campfire and use communal Bath-houses while other more extravagant options include luxuries like in-suite showers and toilets, air-conditioning, TV and full kitchens. It is up to you to choose your comfort level and get glamping.

The majority of the horses at the center (around 30) are actually owned by the center itself. In fact, some of those horses have won national championships.

Outdoor Center - The outside areas of the Pineland Farms working areas feature 12 different trail areas as well as a skating pond and a sledding hill. There are also multiple courses for disc golfing, areas for biking and playing tennis, and many other recreational areas.
