On a scale of one to ten(10 being top notch) I would rate my Maine Huts and Trails get away a 10. My husband and I and 8 others(some we knew well. Others not at all) met at the Airport trailhead to spend the next 4 nights and 5 days in what turned out to be an experience full of laughter, glorious outdoor activity, gorgeous scenery, warm and comfortable lodging and meals that were not only healthy but expertly prepared rivaling most excellent restaurants. This was our first time here and it far exceeded our expectations. Granted, our little group of 10 from 4 different States(mostly connected through canoe racing in NY) really hit it off but the crew at all the Huts were the catalyst for an atmosphere of relaxation, friendliness and tolerance. Hats off to these Hut Angels. The trails were in great shape and I enjoyed the challenge of skiing everyday for many miles of up and down along rivers and lakes and in the woods. We saw a Bald Eagle flying over the Dead River and deer leap across the trail in front of us;the side trips to the waterfalls a must see. Sure, we had some weather related trail conditions that were not ideal and a less than hot shower at one hut but the Maine Huts and Trails experience is one I will remember with a huge smile.

VT comes to ME
All we ever hear about is the awesome skiing at Mad River Glen or the black ice skating on Lake Champlain. The Vermonters have now experienced what Maine has to offer in terms of winter activity on the MH&T trails and they will be coming back with friends!
Yummy and Fun trip!
The Huts have outdone themselves on this trip. The crew was super-friendly and knowledgable. The evening meal was a spectacular, gourmet feast.
I skied in to Poplar for the night. It was a gorgeous day. Although I thought the ski was a bit of a challenge, it was beautiful. The dinner was outstanding! I have been to huts before and thought the food this time was really great. There was a massage therapist that day at the hut. What a treat! I have two comments. There was no decaf coffee offered and the room was really warm. I was excepting 50 degrees as the website says but it was much warmer than that so my sleeping bag was way too warm. I don't like to complain that it was too warm in the winter but sleeping was a problem. Otherwise, it was perfect!
Another great time. Keep up the good work. Very comfortable accomodations.
