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
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.
We had so much fun! Can't wait to come back with a whole group next winter. Really really nice staff, amazingly good food, beautiful spot. Everything was just right. Hooks in the bathroom stalls and more shelf space for toilet kits that don't hang would be the only teeny tiny suggestion! Thank you all so much.

The Maine Huts provided a fantastic trip for our students. We had great skiing, the huts were accommodating and comfortable, the energy tour was engaging and enlightening.
Cold but Warm
It was a very cold and windy day. It's hard to know what to compare the hut to as I have never been in one before, so I'll just make comments on my experience. It was such a cold day that I had to crawl over snow drifts near Flagstaff Lake as I set up from the Flagstaff trailhead for the Poplar hut. My water froze in its bottle. I was so happy to get to the hut. The welcome was extremely warm!! Lovely staff! I was, however, disappointed that the hut was not that warm. The huge woodstove had only dying embers in it and I asked if I could revive it. I stayed glued to the stove until it was time for dinner. Despite the huge and delicious meal, I still was not warm. The comments from the others staying that night, the showers were not that hot, so I decided not to chill myself more by taking a lukewarm shower. The bunkrooms were about 52 degrees, so I just slept in all my clothes. I would definitely repeat this experience but maybe not in winter. I love that the huts are off-the-grid and don't waste a lot of energy on heat, but I will be better prepared next time for a chilly experience. Great staff, great food, tho
We were a group of 4 (over 60) ladies. The skiing was good. Have seen it better but mother nature always has her say. The food was terrific and the staff at both Flagstaff and Poplar were wonderful cooks and very personable. Can't wait to come again, probably next Jan. Anxious to ski to Grand Falls and spend the night.
