Private cabins feature gas lamps and wood stoves (Dennis Welsh)
Maine Wilderness Lodges VideoBeyond Maine’s bustling seaports and crowded resort towns lies an untarnished wilderness replete with mountain landscapes and countless remote fishing ponds. With miles upon miles of winding, wooded trails, you can just as easily find yourself atop a gorgeous mountain cliff or deciding to take a swim in a secluded waterfall basin. Both the lodge and surrounding conservation lands are open to the public as part of AMC's Maine Woods Initiative.
For over 135 years, Little Lyford Lodge & Cabins has provided visitors an authentic outdoor experience in central Maine’s expansive Moosehead Lake region. Cross-country ski out your cabin’s front door, fly fish the West Branch of the Pleasant River, or hike your way up to Laurie’s Ledge on Indian Mountain for stunning views. Relax or play as long as you like; delicious homemade meals and hot showers will be waiting for you back at the lodge.
