Trip with Friends
August 4, 2016

This was my first time staying at any of the huts - same with the rest of the group. We chose the Flagstaff Hut because it was on the lake. It was wonderful. We used the paddle boards and kayaks. Fun. We als spent time at the scenic lookout. It was so peaceful there. The food was great & the staff was fantastic. I will definitely return.

You Left the Light on For Us!
August 1, 2016

Came in late after an ambitious day hiking the entire Bigelow ridge from Horns Pond to Poplar Hut. My traveling companion (age 8) and I had hiked 15 miles over 11 hours. We were due at Poplar by 5pm but underestimating the challenge of the day brought us in at 9pm. All was quiet at Poplar when we arrived, but the light was on and upon hearing our knock Mike came down immediately and supplied us with excellent hot food, cold drinks, hot showers and a deserved rest in the bunkhouse. The next morning's breakfast provided by Mike and Kelly, not to mention lunch to go, was equally superb. Family membership was a no-brainer. We will be back again in winter and hope to see the same team then.

Wonderful Experience

Flagstaff Hut has tremendous location, access to the lake and meals. The staff were especially accommodating and Hannah should be singled out for kudos.

Fantastic

We had a great experience and have already discussed our next adventure at Maine Huts and Trails. The keepers were wonderful. They kept the lodge clean and they certainly kept us all well fed! The meals were tasty, healthy and hearty. We enjoyed the family-style dining and met some lovely people to spend time with. The bathrooms were consistently clean, the shower water was delightfully warm and the beds were passably comfortable, especially after a long day hiking. The loon on the lake was a perfect touch! I would recommend this experience for anyone/everyone. Nature is out there waiting and Maine Huts and Trails serves it up in style!

Great Summer Trip
July 25, 2016

Had been to Flagstaff in winter, but this was our first trip in summer and loved it as much. Our daughter had grown up going to huts and wanted to experience it with her husband. Food, staff, fellow guests, room, all wonderful. My son in law particularly loved the fire pit.. Only disappointment was it was very windy and we weren't able to get out onto lake to paddle, guess that will be another time. Perfect trip for the 4 of us.

Awesome Mountain Biking
June 1, 2016

We stayed overnight at Poplar and then mountain biked to Stratton Brook Hut the next day. The challenging uphill to Stratton Brook was worth the incredible view at the top. The lodge is beautiful! Can't wait to come back!
