What does Self-Service mean?

Maine Huts & Trails Self-Service Winter Experience

Self-service nights are Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights. We decided to offer both full and self-service over the course of a week due to the growing popularity and pricing of the experience. Self-service stays include nearly all the same amenities as their full-service counterparts, but exclude prepared meals. Guests have full use of the commercial kitchen, and pack in and pack out all their supplies, such as food. Hot showers, private bunk rooms, and access to all comfy common areas remains the same.

With self-service:

  • MH&T hut staff and volunteers are present welcoming guests and attending to daily details.
  • Our hut staff do not prepare your meals. Each guest prepares your own meals and you do the dishes.
  • Our Huts’ fully equipped commercial kitchens are at your service, filled with everything you need to create your own culinary experience.

Self-service has a huge fan base among our guests. A self-service trip is an experience that brings your family and friends together for you to create magnificent adventures and memories on the trail, in the Hut, and in the kitchen.

  • Basics are on hand in the Huts’ pantries for use, including spices, oils, and vinegars, sugar, and flour. Do you need that special something to make your meal simply the best? Slip that ingredient in your trip partner’s pack side pocket.
  • Our pantry has on hand for purchase a variety of shapes of pasta and  sauce, and a selection of Good-to-Go’s  delicious dehydrated gourmet prepared meals.
  • A selection of local beer and wine will be available for purchase at the Hut. You may bring your own beverages of choice, but Maine liquor laws require that they may not be enjoyed inside the Hut.
