we attended a LL Bean Discovery School class at the Gorman Chairback Lodge. we went for the LL Bean school, but we will be back for the lodge. The staff was great, very friendly and helpful. The food was very good.Much better than I ever would have expected at a wilderness lodge, and the cooks did not hestitate to adjust the menu for my celiac disease. There are a mix of very rustic and less rustic cabins. Ours was one of the rustic cabins, but we could not have been more satisfied. The cabin was very clean, super heated by our wood stove and adequately lighted by propane lights. A little tight for 3 adults, but very cozy. Just limit how much stuff you bring. i would bring my own pillows. The linens are nice but the pillows provided will disappoint. The main lodge building is the highlight. Super comfortable and a nice alternative to the outhouse. They even have a wine and beer license. what could be better than a day in the maine woods followed by a hot shower and a glass of wine with a great meal. I can not recommend the place highly enough.
