Our group of three was supposed to be eight . . . but five canceled due to forecasted blizzard on Presidents' Weekend. Those who persevered were rewarded by excellent conditions on the trails, more sunshine than we expected, and welcoming hospitality (and delicious meals) at all three huts we visited, including our first-ever overnight at Stratton Brook. Keep up the good work!

The Presidents' "Blizzard"
XC ski to grand falls hit
The team of caretakers at the hut were phenomenal. They were welcoming, kind, hospitable, and charming. The food was delish and the accommodations comfortable. The notes provided pre-trip (I.e. Packing list, info sheet) were very helpful. You might want to add that the road taken to access the trailheads is rough and really for vehicles with four-wheel-drive. We were beginner cross country skiers, and aside for a few challenging hills and snowmobilers, we found the trails to be delightful. Thank you for all your hard work to maintain this for our enjoyment, we have certainly been singing your praises! We look forward to visiting this summer.
I love being treated like a queen when visiting the Huts. I always meet new people with common interests. It's a wonderful experience.
Hospitality at its best.
It was our 5th winter visit to MH&T. And for the 5th time we were very pleased with the level of service and comfort that MH&T provides to their guest. Caretakers are very friendly, food is very tasty, rooms are clean and warm. Since it was our 5th visit, we got accustomed to all of that and I am happy to say that level of service has not dropped over the years. What continue to impress us is how crew of MH&T goes beyond their duties to help their guests. We went hut-to-hut, but two members of our big group had some problem and returned back to hut we started from. Turned out that their bag has already been delivered by gear shuttle to the next hut. When MH&T crew found about this, they offered us to bring their bag back to them. It was extremely helpful. We had great time and we will be back again next year!
The blizzard that wasn't
We were expecting a huge blizzard and -10. The snow never came and neither did most of the other guests so we had a wonderfully quiet visit. The staff, facilities and food were all excellent and we will be back.
3 night ski trip with group of 5
Overall the experience was excellent. We particularly enjoyed the trails and your setting. The lodges and amenities as well were excellent. Re the sleeping rooms, these were quite satisfactory. I personally do not love sharing bunk rooms with strangers, but understand the need to have that arrangement in a remote back country setting. As bunk rooms go, yours are the best I have ever used, and I particularly appreciated the heating of these. The food overall was very good, and certainly plentiful. Having had a lot of experience with AMC huts (both the "high huts" in the whites, and Little Lyford) it is my opinion that your food quality is not quite as good as theirs. That is just one man's opinion, but might be worth looking into as they are certainly your direct competitors. Overall our 3 night 4 day trip was a great experience and I suspect we will be back. At least a few of our group, me included, plan to become members. Hopefully your grand 12 hut plan will eventually be realized and I would love to be able to visit all the huts that you build.
