Stopped at Pittston Farms this weekend off the snowmobile trail. The trails are excellent to Pittston Farms and very well groomed. The menu selection was very limited - Burger, Fries, Chili or Soup and quite expensive. I am ok with paying the price if it is quality but sadly to his trip the meal was not up to standard. It...

Stayed 3 nights and it was a wonderful break. Owners were extremely friendly and excited to spend time to talk. All the staff were nice and helpful. The accommodations are rustic, but clean and comfortable. Food was good, big portions and cooked to order so everything was fresh. The bread was so fresh and delicious. Went canoeing, swimming, birdwatching, and... More

It is a 20 mile drive down a dirt road to get to the farm. They have solar & wind power which you will see right away. It does not seem like an active farm but they have two horses, goats and some dogs. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and you will hear loons at night. We camped out which... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights in one of the Carriage House units. We were comfortable, and wanted for no basic necessities. The staff is friendly, the food was good (not gourmet, but tasty). The location is the star of the experience, though...breathtaking North Woods locale with history.(Was operated as a lumber outpost for Great Northern Paper Company at... More

A group of five men stayed at Pittston Farm to do some fishing in the Moosehead Lake Region. Accommodations are rustic but comfortable, about what you should expect from a former lumber camp. The place was clean, the staff attentive and friendly, the food could best be described as home cooking with portions suitable for lumberjacks. The place is remote... More

The food was good and the location was great. The snowmobile trails were very impressive from Jackman to Pittston Farms. Thank you to Pittston Farms for grooming their trail system so we can visit. The food was tasty but pricey, but we understand being so far away from everything. You must try the onion rings though, they are hand battered... More
