AMC Gorman Chairback Lodge and Cabins
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 March 2011

We spent 5 nights at the new Gorman-Chairback lodge over February vacation. Some of our friends thought we were crazy to go to the middle of Maine in the middle of winter. Now we’re talking about a group to go back next year. You’re in the backwoods of Maine (with all the peace, solitude and adventure that this implies) but the service and conditions are anything but rustic. The staff was knowledgeable, hard-working and eager to make our stay as pleasant as possible.
The main lodge is a beautiful (new as of Jan ’11) facility including bathrooms w/hot showers, dining room, reading/lounge area (w/tons of books & magazines), small store and wood-fired sauna (pure luxury). The meals are superb with hot breakfast and dinner and all the fixings to put together your own lunch. All dinners included soup, fresh bread, entrée and dessert. There were also a variety of snacks and drinks available all day.
The 8 individual sleeping cabins are awesome each with their own wood stove (wood delivered to your doorstep) and all linens supplied. A lower cost alternative is the bunkhouse (our choice) with 12 bunks (broken into 3 groups of 4) and a wood stove. Bring your own sleeping bag for the bunkhouse (mattress and pillow supplied).
There are many skiing and snowshoeing trails to choose from. We did all snowshoeing; others seemed to do more skiing. The view from the top of Third Mountain over Long Pond is excellent and worth the trip. The staff was very helpful in discussing trail options. And did I mention the sauna?....
