Having enjoyed the trails in all seasons for years, we had never actually stayed at a hut. Our daughter gave us a gift certificate for Christmas which we redeemed at the Flagstaff Hut. After an easy 45 minute, beautiful ski in from the trail head to the hut, we arrived, had a nice relax by the fire and then went out skiing for another hour or along the Grand Falls Dam trail and then back for the evening. At the hut, our hostess Ren was super, really concerned for our enjoyment, and she cooked us a great supper meal paying special attention to our preferences. We enjoyed a great nights sleep and Ren had a delicious hot breakfast waiting for us as we requested at 8:00 AM. We then geared up and skiied back out to return home. The trails were great, the snow nicely groomed, and the Ren's hospitality couldn't be beaten. Going midweek in a non-school vacation week also got us a wonderful, quiet, relaxing visit in the beautiful Maine woods. It was a great visit and a great gift from our daughter. Maine Huts and Trails is a must if you enjoy outdoor activities and has something special to offer in all seasons. The gift certificate makes a great gift as we found out.
