I discovered Grand Lake Stream and Canal Side Cabins in 2008 and it has been a favorite destination several times a year since then. John and Mary are the consummate hosts and the cabins are rustic and cozy, while still offering every amenity necessary for a pleasant and relaxing stay (heat, shower, TV (which never gets turned on), gas stove...

If you're looking for a place to fish, hunt, or looking for a place to get away from it all and relax, look no further, as this is the place to go to. You haven't fished, or hunted, till you experience Grand Lake Stream with Maine Master Guide, John Arcaro. Canalside Cabins, which is owned and operated by John and... More

If you are looking for a place to go where time and people have not ruined over the years, the list is limited. There is however a town that is located in the middle of the north Maine woods that seems to have escaped the reality of todays fast paced world we all live in. It's a place where natural... More

If you enjoy the outdoors, Grand Lake Stream is the place to be. I have been to Canalside Cabins every season and I've never been without anything to do. Fishing, Hunting, Kayaking, Canoeing, swimming, ATVing, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, hiking, and just good ole relaxation by a camp fire, there's never a dull moment. What makes Canalside Cabins my choice... More

Our stay at Canal Side Cabins couldn't have been more perfect. The cabin we stayed in was clean, cozy and well equipped. Easy access to Grand Lake and the quaint town itself added to our vacation. And the owners, Mary and John, could not have been nicer. They made us feel so welcome and met any need we requested. John... More

Service was very professional. The facilities are very well maintained and clean. Each of the cabins is a like a small little apartment, yet out in the Maine wilderness. There is direct access to many miles of snowmobile trails and access to West Grand Lake for ice fishing with bait for sale on site. Only downside with location is it... More

We stayed at John and Mary's Canalside cabins and they treated us like family. I had never trolled for Salmon before let alone with flies and John made me feel like a pro in no time showing me exactly what to do then having me do it. My wife is a camera nut and loved the shots of the Bald... More
