It takes 20 minutes on unpaved and pitted road to arrive at Tomhegan Wilderness Cabins. The grounds are for the most part quite scenic. There is a nice dock for boats, but the groundskeepers have not figured out how to wash off the duck poop that covers it. Tame deer wander the grounds are a nice touch, except that several are emaciated. We wished that management would take responsibility for feeding them adequately. We stayed in cabin #3, Ramona. We expected rustic, but our cabin and its contents were dilapidated and neglected. The screening in the front screen door was completely busted. Lighting in the main room was dim because one light fixture did not function. In the bathroom there is a jumble of exposed wiring. The sink slides on the vanity base. A towel hook flips upside down. Two kitchen chairs have busted rails (dangerous!). The picnic table with old paint flaking off was tilted because some legs had rotted at the ends, and the seats were uncomfortably narrow. Our bed had one leg propped up with a piece of log. The fitted sheet had no elastic, so easily slipped off the impermeable mattress cover - with 'DO NOT REMOVE' written across it - making for a sweaty night's sleep. It was so slippery, in fact, that my husband actually fell off the bed and was bruised by the pointed corner of the night stand. The staff were personable face-to-face, but otherwise disrespectful and do not belong in the hospitality industry. When we asked about parking Jessica told us "You can park right by your cabin," only to receive an email asking us to "Move your car to a designated area, not the lawn." They told us in advance to bring blankets but did not provide a top sheet (which we would gladly have brought). After a couple of nights sleeping under scratchy blanket, we inquired and only then learned that top sheets are available "on request." When we asked that the living room light fixture be fixed, they said they would get the special bulbs the next day, but in 5 days never returned or reported back. In the mean time we had requested a reading lamp and received a rude reply: We do not have "extra lamps laying around" - this was attributed to individual ownership of the cabin - and "It is gorgeous outside all week for reading." Individual ownership was also given as the reason they could not provide more than two (uncomfortable) porch chairs. When we pointed out that there were four in the photo, they managed to produce one more, which had part of the back missing. In short, we would not stay there again or recommend Tomhegan to friends. Next time we will stay at down the road at the Birches, which is well maintained and adequately staffed with helpful, trained personnel.

This was our second visit to Tomhegan, and it won't be our last. We stayed for 3 nights in Butch Cabin. The cabin was great. We had a great view of the lawn and the lake shore. We cooked several meals in the kitchen, and grilled on the porch one night. My advice would be to bring your own sharp knives if possible, the knives in the kitchen were fairly dull. Other than that, the kitchen was well equipped. We stopped in Greenville for groceries on our way in, there is a full sized grocery store there. Due to new regulations, we were told to bring our own bath towels and blankets for the bed. Sheets were provided. The herds of deer and flocks of ducks were fun to watch. We didn't get lucky enough to see any moose this year, but I did see a good variety of songbirds. The sunrises were amazing. We hiked the trails on the property and saw some beautiful scenery along the lake shore. We had a firepit down by the lake for a bonfire, but we didn't end up using it. There was also a woodstove inside the cabin and the caretakers stopped by to drop off some kindling. We had a great experience and will definitely plan another visit. Thank you for a great vacation.

11/23/19: I feel a moral obligation to speak up when there has been a blatant disregard for safety. I and a friend were up this weekend to go deer hunting. Tomhegan is accessed by a 4 mile long private road that they maintain. Yesterday, the Moosehead Region experienced an icing event that lasted all day and flash froze last night. This morning the access road was a 4 mile long untreated sheet of ice. Creeping along at less than 5 mph my friends truck kept loosing traction and would slide sideways. At one point, on a small rise, the truck slid backwards on its own. My friends truck is in good repair with four all season radial winter tires that have a lot of life left on the tread. All 6 customer vehicles in camp were equipped in the same fashion. When the manager was summoned, he stated that the road was fine and that we were on our own. He said this even though he had not driven it. We were finally able to negotiate the 4 miles over a one hour period. I do not expect Tomhegan to control the weather. However, I do expect them to be able respond to the weather. They had no sand and no plans to deal with a situation that is common in that part of Maine. To leave the road as it was and tell the customers that it was their problem is unconscionable. Emergency vehicles would not have been able to respond if summoned. They didn't even have sand for guests to use. Five miles down the road, The Birches Resort was using their snow cat, equipped with a serrated plow blade, to keep their road open and were also sanding. This is where I, my friend and the six other stranded guests plan to make accommodations next year.

Response from tomhegancamps, Manager at Tomhegan Wilderness Cabins
Responded Jan 24, 2020
Good Morning, I am sorry a response has taken so long, as we have had quite a bit of trouble logging into our trip advisor account. We do apologize for the road conditions. We were unable to get a sand truck here in a timely fashion for that incident, especially where all guests were lined up to leave right around 8am. Tomhegan does not have the necessary equipment needed to sand our road but we do have sanding in our road contract. That said, sometimes we are one of the last facilities to receive the sanding because of where we are located. We sincerely apologize for what your group went through, and wish there had been a better outcome and faster response on the sanding side.

I wanted a spot on a lake in the middle of backwoods Maine, and Tomhegan was absolutely perfect. We could only stay for 2 nights, but next time we will have to plan a longer visit. The location was perfect, away from civilization. The only sounds at night were the loons on the lake. I have never seen so many stars. The nearest town (Rockwood) is 20 minutes or so down the road, and the nearest decent size town with a grocery store (Greenville) is about 45 minutes away. There was abundant wildlife in the area. We were there in September and did spot a moose in the (5 mile long) driveway. Our friend spotted a second moose an hour or so later, also in the driveway. The deer are practically tame and will walk right up to you in search of veggies. There were also Loons and a variety of song birds in the area. Also, the mallard ducks are tame, and will surround you in a chorus of quacking. There are several hiking trails right on the property that we explored for an afternoon. The cabins are all very different, so I don't know what the rest are like, but we thought Ramon Cabin was perfect. It was one of the smaller cabins, only sleeping 6. One bedroom was a queen bed, and the other was a queen and a set of bunks. The bathroom was spacious, and the kitchen was well equipped. Bring your own food from Greenville. There was a fireplace, but we didn't use it. Also, each cabin has a firepit on the lakeshore, and we did have a campfire one night. Firewood is provided. There is no maid service, you clean up after yourself. We only briefly met the owners, but they were friendly and my emailed questions were answered promptly. Everything about our visit was wonderful and we will definitely be returning to Tomhegan in the future.

My sister and I spent four days at Tomhegan last week and I can't say enough good things about it. I'm not sure there are enough superlatives in the English language to describe the wonderfulness of the experience. The cabins are right on the lake, which is magnificent. The cabins combine rustic simplicity with great comfort. They are spotlessly clean and the kitchen was very well equipped. The staff could not have been more helpful, and the information packet in the cabin was thorough and up to date. We are planning to return next year!

My family had a great time staying at Tomhegan. It was really beautiful. The lake is right at your door. The friendly deer and ducks were a nice surprise. The cabin was well furnished. We were all sad to leave after the wonderful week that we spent. It was one of the best vacations I ever experienced and we hope to do it again soon. It was so peaceful. There were many things to do nearby. We hiked Mt. Borestone, Mt. Kineo, Eagle Rock, and Gulf Hagas. We went white water rafting at the Forks with Northern Outdoors. Our cabin had a top of the line Weber grill. We also enjoyed a fire in the fire pit by the lake every night. The night sky and stars were breathtaking. We can't wait to return.

The good: Our family is gigantic: Around 50ish with kids included and we love what Tomhegan has to offer. For a whole week, three years in a row we've vacationed at Tomhegan. The dirt road, the deer, the family friendly atmosphere, the cute cabins, heck...even the ducks. It's a dang nice place to be in general. Samantha and Jeff, the caretakers are fantastic, answer every question, answer emails, and are generally accessible, easy going and super helpful. It's like Walt Disney got all his ideas from a stay here. The lawn... dang. It's brilliant. You can play Bocce, frisbee, croquet and football pretty much at the same time. You can run around all week barefoot. The lake is vast, and serene, and beautiful. It doesn't seem real at times. The bad: Bring nice pillows and good toilet paper. Oh... and it's a drive to town so pack what you figure you'll need as far as food and drink goes. Oh yeah, bring sharp knives for cooking. The ones they provide... dull. The stove in the main lodge needs to be updated or fixed. The oven is temperamental and doesn't run consistent in temp so maybe pack an oven thermometer to keep an eye on what's going on in there or maybe they could just fix it? The internet... slow when it works. I know, it's remote and the fact that theres internet at all is a blessing but maybe someone could make it better. That's about it. Everything else is great. You can't ask for the world when packing 50 folks into a few cabins for a week. Go there, enjoy it. You'll have a magical week I promise. If you don't, you're expecting too much. As long as you bring your own pillows, toilet paper, sharp knives and an oven thermometer you'll be fine. Bug spray too. Thanks to everyone who make Tomhegan work, I look forward to it every year.

There is a group of guys that have been going on the same ice fishing/ snowmobiling trip to Moosehead Lake (90% of those to Tomhegan) for over 30 years now. I have been lucky enough to be a part of the last 12 of them and there is no place that I would rather go. The lodge is perfect for the 20+ guys that make the trip. There is plenty of room to relax, enjoy the woodstove, look at albums from years past, eat great food (hopefully some fresh fish) and tell plenty of stories. I would recommend any type of large group to stay here and enjoy easy access to the lake and snowmobile trails as well as make great, long lasting memories.

Tomhegan is a destination of choice. It is remote, yet has all the amenities you require. It allows you to unwind. The camp managers, Jeff and Samantha cater to your needs, but honestly, you don't need much up there. Whether you are enjoying the lake, hiking, biking, fishing or sitting on the deck and ready a book, this place has it all. From the wild deer roaming the area to sitting by your own campfire lakeside, it is a very peaceful location. We have stayed in #Diana a few times. The camp is great, it is old school, in character, but has all the basics you want or need. It is clean and comfortable, always! If you leave and are not totally relaxed, then you have not enjoyed all that this place has to offer. Just a tip, get your provisions before leaving Greenville as once you get to Tomhegan, it is a solid 45 minute drive to town. But that is the charm of it too. Book a trip, they have a main lodge and other cabins that will surely not disappoint!!.
