07 Jan 11 A New Twist on the Traditional Coffee House in The Forks, Maine
Northern Outdoors is known as a rafting resort, but it is so much more than just a place to get prepped to ride a boat on Kennebec River rafting and Dead River rafting trips. Located midway between Portland, Maine and Quebec City on Route 201, The Old Canada Road National Scenic Byway, it is an ideal place to break up a journey north or southbound for a great cup of fresh-roasted coffee.
The lodge at Northern Outdoors houses the Kennebec River Pub and Brewery, making it the perfect place for travelers who are passing by to stop and refresh. The lodge serves seriously tastey, locally-roasted coffee by Carrabassett Coffee Company and offers free wifi, a place to check email, get a bite to eat, and relax in rustic comfort.
Coffee houses and coffee shops have been places where people gather for news, information, business and friendship since the first coffee house was created by the Turks in 1475. A stop for coffee at Northern Outdoors is no exception. Whether travellers are looking for a great cup of java, information on the local area or to meet an old friend for lunch, the lodge is a fine twist on the coffee house tradition.
