Sample Hut Menus
Maine Huts & Trails is really all about the food, and with our team of local farmers and artisans, we’ve taken backcounty cuisine to a whole new level. In fact, our food is becoming so popular that we’re now offering dinner at Stratton Brook Hut Friday and Saturday nights all summer, whether you’re staying with us or not! Because we think it’s important to only use the best ingredients possible, our menu is dependent on the local harvest. The following is an example of food sometimes served at the huts, and is always subject to change. If you’re planning a trip with us and have any dietary restrictions, let us know when you make the reservation so we can plan accordingly.
Served at 7:30, family style. Bacon or sausage, Carrabassett Coffee, and a quality tea selection are always included.
Muffins – Lemon, Blueberry, Carrot, Pumpkin, Maple
Yogurt from Cabot Creamery in Vermont
Maine-made granola from Grandy Oats
Parmesan Fritatta with Garden Herbs
Potato Thyme Fritatta
Pancakes – blueberry, sweet potato, apple cinammon or buttermilk; vegan or gluten free available as necessary
Scrambled Eggs from Sandy River Farm in Farmington, often with seasonal local veggies
Even if you’re not staying at the huts, you can still grab lunch without reservations Saturday and Sunday 11:30-1:30. We’ll usually have a couple sandwich options and a soup of the day, as well as chips, salads, beer, wine, and soda. If you’re spending the night, a bagged trail lunch is included with your stay. Here are some example of sandwiches we’ve served this summer:
Caprese – tomato, mozzarella, basil
Bacon, date, cheddar
Sundried tomato, pesto, and spinach
Pulled pork, cheddar, pickled red onion
B, L, T grilled cheese
Thanksgiving – turkey, cheddar, cranberry sauce
Peanut butter, banana, honey
Every overnight stay includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If you’re not staying with us, you can still make dinner-only reservations at Stratton Brook Hut, Friday and Saturday nights all summer, at just $25/person, not including beer or wine.
Baked Beans – The quintessential Maine favorite — Locally grown Marfax beans roasted with blackstrap molasses.
Oven Roasted Pulled Pork — We start with marinated pork, which rests in our signature savory dry rub overnight. Then it’s roasted low and slow for six hours, until it’s falling apart with tenderness. Served with Mother’s Mountain barbeque sauce from Falmouth.
Spiced Braised Beef with Sweet Potatoes – Local grass-fed stew beef slow cooked with sweet potatoes and apricots, with a smoky blend of cumin and ginger. Served over whole-grain couscous.
Vegan Sloppy Joes – Rich, nutty tempeh topped with a savory barbeque sauce
Pasta Primavera – We use pasta from nearby Blue Ribbon Farm, tossed with fresh local veggies and a big, healthy pour of olive oil.
Southwestern Confetti Salad: Fresh veggies tossed with whole grain rice, black beans, fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lime
Beet & Orange Salad: Rich, earthy beets are livened up with orange slices and tender red onion, served with a maple balsamic vinegrette.
Cider Vinegar Coleslaw – simple and fresh, our coleslaw features local red cabbage and carrots, a kick of celery seeds, and vinegar instead of mayo.
Cornbread – homemade and baked to perfection
Cauliflower with Dill Vinegrette – Made with dill fresh from the hut gardens
Garden salad of local veggies topped with a shallot-dijon vinegrette
