Historic Pittston Farm
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Rockwood
Reviewed 12 October 2015

Pittston Farms was established in the late 1800's. Through time, this historic place has had some major overhauls. The new owner's, Guy & Jenn Mills, have made this out of the way establishment a very pleasant experience. The location is what it is supposed to be. Pittston Farms cater to the avid sportsman no matter how young & old. No matter if female or male. This well run establishment lives up to it's expectations. Situated in Rockwood, Maine, people from near & far have the opportunity to experience the " true" Maine wildlife experience. From the hands on owners of Guy & Jenn Mills to the " all around" handy man, Tony, one has to experience the motto, " Maine the way life should be." From the home cooked meals , and plenty of them, to the rustic cabins & main house, one can not only hear but smell the deep woods in which this historic place sits. People not only come to enjoy the home cooked meals, but enjoy the four seasons as well. Last year, this historic expanse served over 17,000 snowmobilers along with the many who hunt & fish. Since taking over, Jenn & Guy have done a revamping of their price structure which will certainly enhance this institution for years to come. Please give these fine people a call at 1-207-280-0000 to make your reservations well in advance. Please note that this is NOT a five star hotel. This is what it is supposed to be and that is an Inn of pleasant memories The rooms are comfortable. The fire place is most welcoming. Enjoy the conversations from those who can really appreciate being there. Bring your camera for a true Maine experience. It is even said that on a day when the river is low, Indian arrows can be found along the bank. Note: The drive to and from the main road can be very challenging. Pittston Farms can best be reached by Truck or snowmobile. Using one's car is quite challenging. It has been said that the road has been in worse shape !! This is all part of the " Maine experience."

Room Tip: Book the Carriage House.

We recently had our wedding at Historic Pittston Farm. We had over 100 of our family and friends join us in celebrating our special day, most of which stayed the night at the Farm. We were so pleased with the service we received. The Farm family prepared all our food for the reception, made our wedding cake which was delicious and prepared a breakfast buffet the next morning.

The Potato House Chapel with all its charm and stained flass window was equipped to handle our 100 guests.

They also provided all the A/V equipment for the ceremony and reception.

The amenities are rustic but this was a logging camp. To know so much history has taken place in one spot and to be able to walk through the museum and read about what logging in Maine was like is fascinating.

The folks that run the Farm are down to earth hard working people that truly appreciate every guest that walks through the front door and try their hardest to make your stay memorable.

As we told our wedding guests ... It was better than a Reny's Maine Adventure to the middle of nowhere in God's Country and that is what you should know when setting out to the Farm. It is an adventure. .. whether you wish it to be exciting, educational or relaxing you can find it all at the Farm.

We have been here in all four seasons and I have to say I can't pick my favorite because they are all wonderful and they all bring their own things that you will fall in love with. Though cornbread is always in season and their cornbread is well delactable or as my kids so yummy.

Thank you Mills Family for taking such good care of ours.

Great destination for ATV, snowmobilers, and outdoors lovers. Former logging camp from early 1900's that now services outdoor adventurers. Offers home cooked meals and super friendly service. Beautiful scenic area with great hunting, fishing, wildlife, hiking, ATV, and snowmobiling.

I enjoyed my stay at Pittston Farm - the history of the place was very interesting. The food was good, the place was clean and comfortable, and the staff was VERY nice. I'd go back anytime. My sole complaint would be that the wifi wasn't working.

While driving 40 miles down a backroad looking for moose, we spotted a sign for the Historic Pittston Farm. We had to take a look. Found a lovely family run farm complete with a museum, restaurant and bakery. The owner explained that most of their business was during bear season. Many stuffed mounts in the main room. We ordered a BLT and we were amazed. It was easily the best BLT we ever had on homemade bread and served with delicious Maine potatoes. My husband claims it was his favorite meal of the trip. A couple other patrons ordered pie and raved about it, telling the rugged owner he'd make someone a good wife. Very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed the visit. Definitely worth a stop if not a stay.
