Escape to the tranquility of mountain lakes, flowing rivers, and spectacular waterfalls in the heart of an untouched wilderness. Wake up to the echoing calls of native loons and take in views of local moose as you paddle across Long Pond. Discover dramatic vistas along miles of interconnected trails, or try your hand at landing the bountiful brook trout in nearby ponds and streams. As part of its Maine Woods Initiative, AMC is pleased to re-open this historic Maine sporting camp to the public.
Built as a private camp in 1867, Gorman Chairback Lodge & Cabins now features a central “green” lodging building for meals and relaxing. Gorman Chairback provides an unforgettable opportunity to experience Maine as nature intended. Hearty, homemade meals, a world-class lodge, and cozy private cabins prepare you for hikes to Gulf Hagas and Third Mountain, a lodge-to-lodge cross-country ski, or simply a day of lakeside relaxation miles away from life’s concerns.
