Our room was spacious and cozy with direct view of South Twin Lake graced by Mount Katahdin in the background. The furnishings, towels and sheets are all high quality, and the room had a lot of well thought out details. New owners Melissa and Matt were attentive and helpful with off season exploration suggestions as well as restaurants and scenic drives. A full breakfast was made to order with plenty of conversation and cheer. We eagerly plan to return in 2023!

Beyond mountain views, beyond fastidiously clean rooms, beyond culinary delights of poached eggs, banana bread, and pumpkin pancakes was a culture of kindness we experienced at the 5 Lakes Lodge. This experience was beyond all of our expectations. Thank you, Matt and Missy,

Nine years ago, my wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the 5 Lakes Lodge. Rick and Debbie were gracious hosts, and the accommodations were of the highest quality. Who wouldn’t enjoy waking up to a view of the peaceful lake with Katahdin standing with quiet majesty in the background? So, when we decided to return to the area this year to climb Katahdin, we knew that we would be staying at Five Lakes. When we arrived, we were warmly greeted by three of the new owners: Rachel, Missy, and Brian. As Millinocket natives, they recently purchased the lodge to keep it in local hands. It is safe to say that 5 Lakes could not be in better hands! The accommodations were just as cozy and inviting as we remembered. With the culinary talents of Missy and Rachel, no guest will leave the breakfast table hungry. As hikers who were heading out at 4:30 am to tackle Katahdin, we especially appreciated the breakfast sandwiches and coffee cake that were prepared and waiting for us. So much better than the standard protein bars that we planned to eat while waiting for Baxter State Park to open. After a 13 1/2 hour hike/climb (yes…you read that correctly), we returned to the lodge to find Brian waiting to greet and congratulate us. It is all of these little touches that make 5 Lakes Lodge truly stand out. We are already looking forward to returning to 5 Lakes! P.S. The blueberry bundt cake, baked granola, and breakfast quiche alone are worth a visit!

We spent two delightful days and nights at 5 Lakes Lodge in Millinocket, Maine, on the shore of South Twin Lake and in view of Mt. Katahdin nearby in Baxter State Park. The rooms featured large windows overlooking the lake and Mountain with wonderfully comfortable beds, quality linens and very comfy rocking chairs ideal for rest, reading or Mountain and Lake watching. As early risers, our host Brian graciously accommodated our"need" for early 6 am coffee. Each day started with a sumptuous breakfast in the large and delightful kitchen with all offerings homemade by Innkeepers, Rachel and Missy. The breakfast area lent itself to conversation with our hosts and fellow guests. It left ample time for discussion of local history as well as moose sightings, sadly of which there were none! We hope to be in the area again for second stay and can't recommend this beautiful spot more highly.

Our recent stay at the 5 Lakes Lodge was truly a vacation made of dreams. The new hosts—Rachel, Missy, and Brian—have created an atmosphere of tranquility, peace, beauty, and fun both inside and outside the lodge. The interior is absolutely gorgeous—the magnificent beds were incredibly comfortable, and the rockers made you think you were floating on a cloud! The outside is stunning—not just the oh-my-gosh view, but the landscaping and decorations were done with such care and creativity to perfectly meld the feeling of serenity everywhere you looked. Everything about our stay was incredible—from the kindness, courtesy, and thoughtfulness of the hosts to the indescribably delicious breakfasts. There aren’t enough stars in the sky to rate the consideration from Rachel, Missy, and Brian for our every comfort and their willingness to make our stay as special as possible—even to the point of birthday balloons and a candle on my muffin! Their knowledge of the locale was invaluable for hiking, dining, and wildlife viewing and they were always willing to give us fantastic suggestions about activities in the area. We cannot wait for our next visit to this blissful sanctuary, and we thank them for all they did to give us the best vacation ever!

1st Class! 5 Star for sure. Can’t say enough good things about this place. Brian, Rachel, and Missy are the best hosts. The breakfasts were spectacular. Forget lunch you won’t need it. The rooms and the view are beyond comparison. The location is idyllic. I’m so glad we found this place.

We got lucky and scored 2 nights in the Elbow Room. Great people, beautiful property, big comfy bed, and no better view of Mt Katahdin. Short trip access to Katahdin hikes, lake country, and a reasonable drive to NB Canada for a day trip.

We traveled to Millinocket, ME as my husband was thru hiking the Appalachian trail from Georgia to Baxter State Park to finish yesterday. The 5 Lakes Lodge was the perfect place to stay and celebrate his accomplishment! Rachel, Brian, and Missy are the perfect hosts! The property is beautiful with a breathtaking view of Katahdin across the beautiful lake. So appropriate as the final 5 miles of the trail summit to the top of this mountain. The rooms are beautiful with every detail thought of. The great room and property the best for relaxing and visiting with the hosts and other guests. The hosts are fun and very knowledgeable about the area. The breakfast was delicious. Our first time in Maine was perfect thanks to this experience. We will be back!

Gorgeous facility within an easy drive of Baxter State Park...or just stay here and enjoy the view. New owners are going out of their way to ensure your stay is unforgettable. Canoes and kayaks are available or bring your own boat and use the public boat ramp. Delicious home-made breakfast every morning.
