Long Weekend
July 22, 2017

This was my second visit to Maine Huts & Trails and it was awesome! There are so many options for activities it is hard to decide how to spend your days. I was able to get in a great hike and learned how to paddleboard. The staff was so friendly and knowledgeable with tips on where to go, and the meals they made were excellent. Already looking forward to next time!


Flagstaff Hut
July 22, 2017

The huts were beautiful, the staff was great, we had a blast. The only suggestion we had is that the trail map can be misguiding for mountain biking. The hemlock trail is listed as a hike/bike trail and it is not really a bike trail. A few other bikers we met made the mistake of taking it.


Night with the Stars

Fantastic evening at Poplar Hut with chef/author Christine Rudalevige! Lovely dinner and good conversation with old and new friends! Summer is a wonderful time to visit this part of Maine. Excellent experience with both reservation staff and Hut crew. I've already booked another visit to both Flagstaff and Grand Falls later this month.


Fantastic and Challenging
June 28, 2017

Our annual girls outing took us to Grand Falls Hut this year. The hike and paddle made this trip unique for us. All was do able although the take out was a bit challenging. Hut was beautiful but the highlight of our trip besides the falls was Emily our host at the hut. What an amazingly talented woman she was. Passionate about the hut system especially her hut. Outstanding cook and so knowledgeable about the hut system and area. Just loved to listen to her. Her tour of the hut only furthered my realization that she needed to know much more than cooking and greeting guests. She needed to be fully able to operate complicated systems - solar, wood furnace and toilet system. WOW. Impressive.


Excursion to Grand Falls Hut
June 28, 2017

Confidence building trip...We learned a lot about how much we can handle when confronted with less than perfect weather. We faced some unexpected, whitecaps, headwinds and rain. This simply made arriving at the magnificent Grand Falls Hut all the more special. Staff at the hut went above expectations to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The food was delicious, varied and nutritious.The falls were spectacular! The river was calm as glass on our return trip. I highly recommend a paddle/hike to Grand Falls Hut.


Peaceful Luxury

I visited the hut in the self-serve season with my sister and daughter. We were the only visitors along with the gracious volunteer host and spent a cozy evening curled up in front of the fire with books. There is a good view nearby, great facilities, and very reasonable prices before the full service season gets going.
