We have previously stayed at 5 Lakes Lodge in the fall. From that previous stay we knew the Lodge on South Twin Lake looking at Mount Katahdin was comfortable and the hosts, Rick and Debbie, most gracious. When my wife, Maureen, and I were looking for a winter get away I remembered Rick telling us during our previous fall visit...

We found this magical place after looking on trip advisor for hotels in this region that support snowmobiling. It has become one of our favorite places to go for snowmobiling. The access to trails right out of the door is perfect right on Jo-Mary trail system which is groomed to perfection. Hosts Rick and Debbie go above and beyond to...

One of our greatest trips ever. The expanse of trails were groomed to perfection. The JoMary trails were the best. Our Minnesota trails were never this good. The Lodge is spectacular and Rick and Debbie are wonderful hosts. Waking up to a view of Mount Katadin reflecting in the lake is spectacular and then you smell breakfast being prepared. We...

If you are planning a trip to Baxter State Park and want to stay in a place that has incredible views and outstanding hospitality there is no other choice but 5 Lakes Lodge. Located right on the edge of Partridge Cove on South Twin Lake in Millinocket, Maine. The main Lodge, run by Debbie and Rick, is a B&B and...

We loved staying at the 5 Lakes Lodge! We enjoyed the area and Baxter State Park. Returning to the Lodge each evening was so relaxing and we met some wonderful people, including Rick and Debbie, the owners. This is the place to stay for a true feel of north woods Maine.

My wife and I visited Maine Highlands during the Labor Day weekend and we're lucky enough to get ourselves in the South Twin room of the lodge. What a great and peaceful place to stay! Needless to say its location, same water front & mountain view from all rooms, well maintained kayaks & canoes free for the guests to ride...

Took a long weekend to hike Katahdin and stayed at 5 Lakes Lodge. The hospitality was excellent, you can't ask for more from the property and accommodations, and the hike was epic. We highly recommend staying here!

We were lucky enough to get a reservation here during high summer season. Unlike any lodging in town, 5 Lakes offers a very special location right on the lake, with an unobstructed view of Mount Katahdin. You can swim, canoe or kayak by day and listen to the call of loons at night. Our room, done in lodge style, was...
