What does Self-Service mean?

Beyond the two primary rules of self-service: carry-in/carry-out and leave the Hut better than how you found it, the only real difference is in the meal and kitchen offerings.  With self-service there are no hut chefs to cook, serve, and do the dishes for you.  Instead, overnight guests are given full kitchen privileges to create your own culinary experiences.  Our state of the art kitchens are fully equipped with everything you need to create your own delectable dishes.  including commercial grade appliances, cookware, dinnerware, and utensils.  (We don't have a micro-wave). While using the kitchen is an amenity for our paying guests, day visitors are always welcome to bring their own picnic lunch to enjoy and relax in the lodge dining hall. Not sure what to make or want to keep your pack light?  We've partnered with Maine-based Good To-Go to sell a variety of their delicious, dehydrated, gourmet meals at the Huts.  If our huts are anything but a hut, then these meals are anything but dehydrated.  Click here for more on the Good To-Go product line.
