Stayed one night here after spending three nights out in the AMC huts on the trails from Crawford Notch to Appalachia trailhead (near Gorham NH). I had stayed here several years before and loved the atmosphere. The night at Joe Dodge lodge included family style dinner and full buffet breakfast, plus there was an evening Forest Service rangers program on timber management. The lodge also has a sitting room with games, and good free wifi throughout. The atmosphere is very hiking-oriented and there is no place else you could stay where there is so much enthusiasm for outdoor activities. All staff were very cordial.
