Most children live in urban or suburban settings. Despite the availability of lawns and trees, few young people have felt the awe of endless forests or an open night sky. These are the gifts that await us at Modin—a place hidden among majestic mountains and unspoiled landscapes. The Modin setting was chosen with care. Salmon Lake, on which Modin is located, represents the crown jewel of Maine's pristine Belgrade Lakes chain.
The first journey to Modin inevitably leaves families with a life-long connection to Maine. Thousands of miles of coastline nestle picturesque seaside towns with their charming bed & breakfasts and luxury inns. Maine's larger, thriving cities host great shopping and unparalleled culinary options with nationally acclaimed restaurants and award-winning chefs. Maine is renown for its outdoor activities. Adventure seekers will enjoy world-class whitewater rafting and hot air ballooning. Others will marvel at the breathtaking scenery while golfing on championship courses or biking down scenic byways. With all that Maine has to offer one finds themselves eager to return year after year. There is a reason they call it "Vacationland."
Maine is easy to get to. Roughly two hours by car from Boston or a quick 45-minute flight from New York—with service from many major US gateways—a trip to Maine is really just around the corner.
