I’m a fan of the Appalachian Mountain Club (and a member). The AMC runs these cabins. I’ve been to this location, and it’s very beautiful. My two-star rating is for the misleading, perhaps deceptive, pricing. I recently tried to reserve a cabin at Gorman Chairback. A one-room cabin with a queen-sized bed, the smallest cabin there. I entered the number... More

Gorman Chairbackis a special place, at the end of Long Pond, with beautiful lake and woods views. The cabins are comfortable, with wood stoves, good insulation and comfortable beds with sheets and blankets provided. Some have bathrooms, but the most charming are the restored cabins right on the water's edge. The food is delicious and plentiful and the staff is... More

I adore everything about this lodge. The staff couldn't be more helpful. And they were the kind of people in hospitality who asked you if you needed something before you even realized you did. The light pours into the public spaces, including the spacious dining room and the lovely reading room with its gorgeous handmade hearth. This is the kind... More

As two couples, we couldn't have had a better experience - an ample cabin with bathroom and shower and a lovely lodge with fantastic food and staff - for our last night in the Maine Woods. The staff provide more than any of us could eat for breakfast and dinner along with a large sandwich with sides (chips, cookies, gorp)... More

We made our third winter trip to Gorman Chairback in February. Most folks ski in about 6-8 miles (depending on route) and the AMC brings your luggage so you ski with a daypack. The skiing was great with groomed trails. The staff were friendly and went out of their way for us. The food was great. We enjoyed the sauna... More

We spent two days and nights at Gorman Chairback as the last leg of our week long West Branch Pond-Little Lyford-Gorman snowshoe trek in the Maine back woods. We stayed in cabin 9, one of two new "deluxe" cabins with in-cabin bathrooms, propane heat and power. Most cabins are older, clean with wood heat and propane lamps and share bathrooms,... More

On our first ever visit to Gorman Chairback, we found a fun helpful and charming crew that made us feel so welcome, together with an incredible cook (thank you Michael). We opted for the luxury cabins and they were all that we could have hoped for. Here are three vignettes: Beautiful ski trails all around, followed by a hot shower... More

We had an incredible time skiing lodge to lodge. It's remote and beautiful. Surrounded by snow and friends, our trip has become an annual tradition. The cabins are rustic and comfortable, a perfect escape. The best part of a day out in the backcountry is coming back to the lodge. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Coffee always on, hot...

We skied to Gorman Chairback Lodge & Cabins (GCLC) from Little Lyford (about 7 miles). We had been very pleased with our accommodations at Little Lyford, but we were in for quite a treat when we reached GCLC. Again there are a lot of small cabins clustered around the main lodge. The difference is that the main lodge was rebuilt... More

Less funky than nearby Little Lyford Pond Camps (also a wonderful spot), this is where you come if you want a soft bed (not a bad thing!). Be prepared to get up early and pack in a full day of activity. You'll need to to avoid gaining weight from the amazing food they serve. Great staff. Cabins along the pond... More
