“Best Summer Vacation EVER!”
Reviewed 20 March 2012

I love Maine and spent summers as a child in Maine. As an adult I have returned to coastal locations for vacations which were great, however never captured the magic of my Maine memories until we stayed at Migis last summer. The rustic setting and casual manner, does not really show how magical a visit can really be.It took a day to really unwind and appreciate the fact that you do not have to do anything. We relaxed in the lake, on a dock or canoe. Water-skiing and kayaking when we felt the urge. The food was carefully prepared and beyond our expectation. There is no place nicer then having breakfast or lunch outside at the point. The family has maintained the traditions which made Migis famous for many years and updated the guest cottages/rooms to provide today's expected comfort. There were many groups of families and friends who have known each other for years. It is a great spot for a multi generational reunion or family get away. If you do not want to be around kids....perhaps this is not the spot for you in the summer. It is perfect for kids of all ages. Board games are a perfect diversion or a book in an Adirondack chair by the lake. Do not expect the latest trends here. It seems expensive, however it is all inclusive. I would describe it as a good value. As a hotelier myself, they have been impressed with their attention to detail and the simple yet warm manner with which they execute true hospitality. I would highly recommend that you give Migis Lodge a try if you are looking for the best summer vacation ever!

Room Tip: We stayed in the main building because it was the only rooms/cottages with A/C. Spacious and well ap...

Migis is a series of understated homey cabins, where you feel like you are visiting your old aunt on campgrounds that are perfectly maintained and are incredibly comfortable for adults. Dining is in a lodge for dinner, that offers lobster every nite. Lunches are offered outside on tin camp trays with the most amazing bbq burgers, hotdogs, beans, stews, chilis and assorted other suprises that change daily. The dessert is always something delicious and chewy, something that you would see in a womens league cookbook that is warm and wonderful, also great cookies. Friday nite offers you an outdoor clam and lobster bake. So good! Rachel Ray and Bodies by Jake were there for the food the evening i went. Beyond the food which is obviously very important to me, there are great lake activities - water skiiing, swimming, relaxing, boat rides and picnics on little islands. tennis is available and before and after dinner the guests congregate around the lodge to socialize, possibly playing backgammon or cards in a very warm, friendly, relaxed atmosphere. The hosts are very accomodating and we always look forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: If you have difficulty walking try to be close to lodge. I liked the locations further away, near t...

Perfect for all ages. The food is first quality. Excellent service, working fire places ready to be lit(Maine nights can be chilly even in the summer) rustic, but very comfortable cabins of every size, every water sport available, beautiful lake clear crisp water, great walking and hiking near by, places to read and be quiet.Loved being with family and also having space to myself.Understated elegance. Perfect.

This October we made our first visit to Migis. We truely enjoyed our three night visit: the food was great, service outstanding & truely amazing sunsets. I took out a sailboat for the first time in 35 years, it was great.

I enjoy planning driving trips for my wife & I to extraordinary places our friends have not only never been to, but probably never heard of: Mohonk Mountain House, The Swag, Old Edwards Inn & The Opryland Hotel are some of our favorites. This year Migis Lodge has been added to our exclusive list of great places to go.

Thanks to everyone for a great trip, we will see you again & bring some friends.

Migis Lodge is a resort from another era: Men sport jackets to the six-course dinners, guests toast s'mores at a bonfire beneath the stars, your cottage's fieldstone fireplace is prepped each morning by a "cabin boy" for a quick starting fire in the evening. Some resorts might be content to let the setting do the work, but the staff at Migis go beyond the call to ensure that whims are satisfied. The owner is an avid outdoorsman who is quietly knowledgeable and passionate about the area; he is a font of information as guests tour the spring-fed lake on his vintage boat. Upon arrival, most guests drop anchor because there's no reason to leave.
