Canoeing the Saco

Bill and I enjoyed a very pleasant day of paddling on the Saco River yesterday. The weather was glorious with a crystal clear blue sky and nice breeze on the crystal clear river. We didn't paddle too much since we allowed the current to take us along slowly, so we could take in the scenery and let all of worries leave us.

This canoe trip leaves the eastern border of NH and loops windily towards western Maine to Fryeburg. The land along the river is mostly wooded with some open fields in between, so we saw only a few farmhouses along the way. There were several beaches that you could stop off at along the river to stretch or eat lunch. We also explored one branch of the river that veered off to the right hoping to spot some wildlife or birds.

Towards the end of our canoe trip we were in awe of the sight of the Moat Mountains, including Mt. Kearsage (eastern side) which are located in North Conway, as a backdrop against the river. We would be happy to arrange the same kind of enjoyable and peaceful canoe trip for you too during your visit to The Buttonwood Inn with Saco Bound Canoe & Kayak at a discounted rate--just see our package:
