Grand Falls trip
June 22, 2015

Everything was great! The hut, the weather, the caretakers. I have stayed at all of the huts and this one and Flagstaff are my favorites. I brought two friends with me who never had been to a MHT hut and they were blown away by what they found. Not what they expected. I didn't say much before hand so they would be surprised. It is probably going to be an annual event going forward. All the guys who passed on going with us were pretty jealous when they saw the pictures .

Grand Falls
June 22, 2015

The Grand Falls Hut and our overall stay was outstanding. Easy access and the trail system was well marked and well maintained. The Hut caretakers were very accommodating and some of the nicest people I have met. The Dead River, Grand Falls and the Forks is an amazing and beautiful watershed area. I highly recommended a visit.

Full Hut Special
May 18, 2015

Seven families took advantage of the full hut spring special and rented the Flagstaff Hut for Mother's Day weekend. It was fabulous! The ice had just gone out a few days prior to our arrival, and there was not a bug in site. Some of us paddled in from the boat ramp, and some hiked in. Twenty-two of us climbed up Little Bigelow on Saturday, and had incredible views (and lots of snow on top!). Will was an awesome host, and everyone had a blast of a time! We already booked for next year. It will definitely be a tradition. Thanks Maine Huts and Trails!

LOVE the Maine Huts and Trails. This was not my first visit, nor will it be the last. We have skied, hiked, snowshoed and raced on the trails. Although we do a lot of wild endurance adventures, I am pleased that you have a system for those folks and young kids/families to enjoy an intro into the adventure world! Accommodations/Meals are first class, 5-star (for backwoods!!). Appreciate that you cater to special dietary needs (gluten-free, for me)! Thank you.

Warm rooms
April 17, 2015

Had a great trip, food was excellent, weather was great, staff were very friendly. My only comment would be that the rooms were way too warm for sleeping. Perhaps we came just as the weather had warmed up, but the heating hadn't been adjusted yet. Sleeping was an uncomfortable experience though.

Stratton Brook Hut Spring Stay
April 7, 2015

We arrived at the Stratton Brook Hut after a long day of back country skiing in March. The warmth of the hut staff and guests made the long uphill at the end of the day worth it. The food was spectacular. We will return.
