This was our 3rd rafting trip in the last two summers and I can't say enough great things about Northern Outdoors. Each rafting trip has been so fun and well organized, we're always impressed by how well run the whole day is. We also love staying on site to enjoy...

First time to the Kennebec site. Have been to the Penobscot site several times for outstanding white water rafting. The Kennebec site was beautiful. Did not go rafting this time, but did go hiking on several spectacular trails including Mosquito Mountain and Mount Kineo, instead. Both highly recommended. Previously broken arm precluded...

We had a group of 8 (4 couples) that had such a great time last year in 2016 that we booked it again this year. We stayed in the Crying Loon Cabin and it was perfect. We loved hanging out in the beautiful lodge and enjoying the food and beer along with...

"Whenever I have a bad day I just think of these people." - Ozzy Osbourne Whenever you're having a bad day think of a lodge and brewery deep in the Maine woods that guides whitewater rafting trips by day and throws a totally rad 80's dance party by night. There were...

Here's the week at a glance: Margarita Monday Liz’s House Margarita $6 Mexican Dinner Special! Tuesday Family Fun Night Get out of your...

A comfy log building, a roaring fire, a fieldstone hearth, big windows, snowy views, hot food and great beer. The trailside lunch is key to Maine snowmobiling. It's where you get trail reports from other riders. It's where you warm up, fill up (on food and gas,) check in (wifi...

This is the second year a group of my friends and I have come to Maine in early October for a weekend of rafting. Just like the first time, we found the entire experience to be great - from our logdominium - which was clean and spacious, to our day...

My family came to spend our Labor Day weekend searching for fun and adventure - and boy were we satisfied! Our group ranged in age from 16 to 65 - and each and everyone of us had a blast. We rafted the Kennebec with Alec on Saturday and got our...

We had such a good time with Northern Outdoors for my bachelor party. We did whitewater rafting on the Kennebec river, and it was a blast the whole way down. The guides we had (Victor and Brandi) were very knowledgeable and made everything extra fun for us. The property is beautiful...

I cannot say enough about what a fabulous trip I experienced at Northern Outdoors, everything from the location, hosts, the rafting and rafting guides, accommodations, great food, great beer, Suzie and the Smelts, kayaking, fishing and so much more...

But that's exactly what Jim Yearwood did...

Maine Craft Beer Take a look inside the Kennebec River Brewery and learn how we make our handcrafted beer - served to you as ales and lagers, from our Master Brewer. What's keg-conditioned? Watch the video and you'll find out! We meet the man behind the Magic...

We didn't actually stay at the northern outdoors but we rented ATV's from them. The ATV riding was great and the staff was very helpful. One of our ATV's broke down about 2 hours into our trip. We called back to Northern Outdoors and they brought us a replacement very...

We drove over 4 hours to get to Northern Outdoors (much more with traffic), and would do it again in a heartbeat! Our entire experience was outstanding. The cozy cabin was clean and comfortable and had charming furnishings. The lodge had very friendly and helpful staff and had every amenity to...

We booked the Point House for a two day snowmobiling trip with a few of our top customers. The Point House is beautiful, great furnishings, and easily has enough room to sleep 12 or more people. I can only imagine what it's like at that place in summer! The people at...
