Relax, breathe the fresh air and enjoy the best outdoor recreation opportunities and scenery Maine has to offer
Take some time for yourself and escape from your busy day-to-day life to the tranquil Maine woods. Discover the lakes and ponds of the Katahdin Region by canoe, fly fish on the flowing rivers, and take a short walk to several spectacular waterfalls all in the heart of Maine’s untouched wilderness. Wake up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee and hear the echoing calls of native loons as you gear up for your day’s adventure. Enjoy secluded time in the woods away from cell phone service. Our main lodge offers wifi and our cabins give a chance to fully “unplug” from the internet.
Visit our comfortable, full-service, and year-round lodge and enjoy our excellent hospitality along with the peaceful seclusion of our private wilderness with a beautiful waterfront setting.
Located on the shores of Upper Shin Pond just north of Millinocket and east of Baxter State Park, we offer convenient access to Baxter Park’s northern entrance, Katahdin Woods & Waters National Monument, Penobscot River Trails and Maine’s great North Woods.
Dining by Reservation
Thank you for a fantastic Summer! Beginning January 13th, 2023, we will again open up for reservation dining as space allows.
Because space is limited, we can only take on a few parties each night. Call us with your reservation request as soon as you wish and we will confirm with you about one week in advance as we schedule and plan our meal services. We have space for small groups of 2-10 people. Larger groups are encouraged to reserve as early as possible.
Enjoy small private tables with a laid-back atmosphere. Let us serve you your favorite drink by the fire and pamper you with a three-course meal cooked to perfection every single time. Meals are served at 6 PM and are planned thoughtfully to allow our business to operate as efficiently as possible. You may have a few options to choose from, but everything is prepared in a manner to minimize food waste.
Dining is a personal experience and we want you to feel good about every aspect of your time spent with us. Expect a phone call from us before your scheduled meal. We want to know your likes, dislikes, allergies, and preferences to ensure we give you the best experience possible. We are happy to cater to dietary restrictions and allergies as long as we have advanced notice.
A Quick Note from the Owners!
Hi! Thanks for taking a minute to look over our website! You may be planning another trip to our lodge or perhaps you’re a first-time visitor! Either way, there are some slight changes that we have made to our yearly schedule that may be helpful for you to consider before booking your next stay with us.
We have owned this lodge for 7 years now! It doesn’t seem possible really. In that time, we have managed to tear down, renovate, rebuild and construct all sorts of things. All while having two babies. Dare I say, we are finally considering ourselves adults. What we have learned about ourselves and our business, is that we need to set boundaries and allow ourselves some time to be human, be parents, and most of all, be a family. It’s not easy to always be working with no days off like a traditional 9-5. We love this lifestyle and we are so incredibly blessed to be doing what we love with our children, but the truth is…..it’s hard work! So, we hope that you’ll understand and respect our need for the time off that we schedule for ourselves throughout the year. I will outline our plan for 2023.
Mike, Lindsay, Walter & Annie
The first change that we are making is beginning January 1, 2023, we will be offering meals Tuesday-Saturday (Changed from Wednesday-Sunday) evenings to our guests. In the past, we have served the public by reservation whenever someone called. As our business has grown and we have grappled with how to staff adequately, we have decided to open public dining during our peak seasons only and we are only open to public dining on Friday & Saturday evenings. We are passionate about our food service. We feel it is one of the main draws to our establishment, but we can’t kill the cook! Thank you for your understanding as we try to balance the delicate line of work and home life.
