I love this place. The staff and other guests are knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The sauna is a complete joy after a day out in the cold beauty of the Maine woods in winter. The accommodations and food are warm and homey.

AMC's Gorman Chairback Lodge and cabins are a great getaway and have the potential to be an awesome cross country and BC skiing experience that are pretty accessible yet you also feel like you are really in the wilderness during the day yet have full amenities at night. My rating would be "excellent" if based solely upon the lodges, however,...

The staff & food and Gorman Chairback are fantastic! You couldn't want a better backcountry experience. They have expertly groomed ski & snowshoe trails, a beautiful new lodge with a sauna, showers, nice lounge with fireplace and spacious dining room with great views of Long Pond.

We snowshoed approximately seven miles along well maintained trails from Little Lyford, another of AMC's lodges in the 100 Mile Wilderness, others were on skis. Both the modern lodge and rebuilt log cabins are rustic in appearance, and offer an exquisite setting along Long Pond. As with other AMC facilities, staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and competent; food was well prepared...

We just returned from two nights at Gorman Chairback celebrating our 40th anniversary with daughters and their husbands. Our cabin (#11) slept 6 comfortably and the lodge was just 20 yards away. Whether skiing on well-groomed trails, seeing moose tracks, birds and an otter or nestled around a woodstove working on a jig-saw puzzle, we couldn't have asked for a...

We just spent 3 amazing days at Gorman lodge with 16 family members ages 18 months to 77 years. It was amazing. A great staff. Heavenly accommodations in rustic cabins on the edge of a frozen lake. Food was great. Cross country skiing fun. Be prepared for a long ski in or take the snow coach ride.

This was our first time at an AMC lodge. We generally tent or stay in a motel and we usually travel with our kayaks and hiking gear. I had read so much about this place in the AMC magazine we decided to give it a try. Greenville is an awesome little town, fun stores, nice little waterfront and a fantastic...

Just returned after a marvelous 3 day,two night stay with a group of fellow hikers and kayakers. I stayed in the Octagon cabin which is the oldest cabin on the property - loved the character.

We spent Labor Day Weekend at Gorman Chairback Lodge. We have been to other AMC lodges and this is by far the best. The cabins are very clean and well maintained. We did a lot of hiking, canoeing and kayaking, everything is right there waiting for you. The food is excellent and there is plenty of it. The best part...

We have stayed both winter and summer at Gorman Chairback, part of the Maine AMC lodge system. We had cabin #8, which is an octagon log cabin, situated right on the lake. Very comfortable beds and although our cabin didn't have it's own bathroom, the main lodge was just above us. There are several new cabins that do have their...
