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.

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!


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!


Great for a School Trip
May 29, 2016

This is a great trip for school based groups. Our students have the opportunity to hike, build shelters, fish and explore the outdoors. It also builds an appreciation of what the huts have to offer. Get outdoors with your kids!


Great Time
May 26, 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our 'walk in the woods' this late May weekend. The views hiking to Stratton Brook Hut were bejeweled with only partially opened, chartreuse leaves on the trees, allowing views of the still-snowy Sugarloaf trails. The trilliums were out in full show - both red and white; the weather was perfect through all three days, and SOME of us ended the trip with a dip in the river as we rejoined the carriage road returning from Poplar Stream Hut. We all agreed it was great fun, and a wonderful opportunity to reconnect not only with nature but also with our friends. We're planning our next MH&T trip already!


Our Second Trip to Maine Huts & Trails
March 7, 2016

We left VT on Feb 27th and headed to Maine Huts and Trails for a 4 night 5 day ski with not a flake of snow around our house. What would it be like in Maine? We were surprised at the amount of white in the western mountains of Maine and delighted that there was enough snow on the trails to ski! However after a test ski before we set out on the trails we decided to use our metal edged back country gear and a very good decision it was! Conditions were firm, fast and blue icy in spots. We packed our micro spikes. This too was a good decision. The skiing was challenging but that made our Hut time that more relaxed and needed. The Staff are so positive and accommodating. The food delicious and plentiful. The hut atmosphere is welcoming and very pleasant. An enthusiastic two thumbs up for our trip! 4 stars above due to the skiing conditions that were as good as they could be under the circumstances.
