Nominate Someone to Win the Ultimate Unplugged Maine Adventure Getaway!

A Getaway Contest for Deserving Folks

We all have those friends, colleagues or family members who go beyond our expectations–remembering a birthday or anniversary, picking up the kids when you can’t, coming through on a tough deadline, or just being there when you really need them. And I bet they’re so busy with work and life (like the rest of us, right?), they don’t have or take the time to really unplug and appreciate life. Well, we have a solution–the Northern Outdoors Adventure Resort’s “Unplug in Maine Adventure Getaway” contest!

Nominate Someone to Win an Unforgettable Experience

White Water Rafting on the Kennebec River – Worth Miles of Smiles!

We’re accepting nominations for your friends, colleagues or family members who really deserve to escape the daily grind and reconnect with life. Research shows that experiences bring more happiness than gadgets and doodads (yes, that is a real word). In fact, Outside magazine and Fast Company recently published research that proves unplugging from the virtual world, even for 10 minutes a day, can make you feel more engaged and present in your everyday life. It also can make you feel more relaxed and calmer, giving you a better awareness of your surroundings and, interestingly enough, stimulates creativity. Heck, we even wrote a blog about how important unplugging and experiences are! So which of your friends, colleagues, or family members is in desperate need of a break?

So Many Ways to Customize a Winning Vacation

We have a range of activities to fit just about everyone in your circle. Activities include whitewater rafting, scenic float trips, fishing, ATV rentals and tours, and hiking; accommodations run the gamut from private cabins and campground sites to lodge rooms in our timber-framed lodge. We also have  a swimming pool, giant hot tub, game area, and patio dining. And that’s just at The Forks Resort Center. Did we mention our Kennebec River Brewery and pub with handcrafted microbrews and tasty food? Now we did!
