My husband and I stayed at Migis Resort this past August to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary. I had been to Migis a long time ago as a child with my parents and some 15+ years later still remembered Migis!! That in itself speaks volumes about the resort. We chose Maine because it such a beautiful state. We are from New Jersey and wanted a change of scenery without having to get on a plane, customs, etc. We also wanted a change of pace from the usual Caribbean vacations. We did love the rustic feel this resort has. The views are gorgeous, lake breath-taking, grounds and cabins well-maintained and very cozy. My husband and I are both a little "woodsy" and this place definitely has that type of feel to it. Food was awesome as well. I love Lobster and was able to eat a whole Lobster just about every night! :)
There were a few drawbacks, but overall nothing that would hinder us from visiting Migis again down the road. The first being the price. I found the price tag a little steep...over $3,500.00 for 4 nights only. That's not including air fare either...we drove up from NJ. On top of that, the day we went to check out, they had never credited our advance booking deposit of $500.00 on to our account. They took care of it only when I realized it, but needless to say, that left me with a bad taste in my mouth.
There were also a lot of children there. Not that it such a bad thing, my husband and I both love kids...however, we were the only couple there without children. I also found that we were the youngest people there, minus the kids. Most people there seemed to be middle aged couples traveling with 2-3 kids. We are both in our late 20's. This is more of a family resort...perhaps we will visit again down the road when we have our children.
I was also upset about was finding a tiny mouse in the kitchenette sink our 2nd or 3rd night there. At first I thought it was fake and my husband was playing a joke, but then it moved and I almost died. Luckily my husband caught the thing in a glass and let it out outside. We then called the office and told them about it. They sent out some kind of manager or assistant manager and he was a little bit rude and snotty about the occurence. He did place traps along the cabin and luckily we didnt have any more suprise critters. When I asked if there was anything more they could do for us in regards to the mouse situation, he was a bit snotty...saying "well this is the woods" or something to that effect. Well, yes we know that...that's why we came here. We also know that things like that happen in the woods, as we live on five wooded acres in NJ. However, I was moreso expecting a chipmunk getting in through the porch and not a mouse!
The last thing, we wanted a cabin with lake views. I was assured the cabin we booked had a lake view. It did, but barely, the view was very obscured by a thick tree covering.
Overall a nice place...expensive. It'll be a few years at least before we'd go back.
