Absolutely incredible place and staff. Loved the lodge, the food and specially the service. Northern Outdoors team is truly amazing. The rafting was super fun and very professional. Don't think twice! Go stay with them and do all their activities. I can't wait to be back!

We had a fantastic stay at Northern Outdoors. From the moment we arrived we felt extremely welcome by the whole crew. The cabins are beautiful and comfortable with modern amenities and great river view, the main lodge is very bright and spacious with plenty of outdoor area and delicious food. Some lovely walks are available around and we went white-water rafting which was an absolute first class experience, exhilarating while very safe at all time. The equipment was in perfect condition and the guides were top notch. I highly recommend it!

Very Good folks running the place. Restaurant and Brewing Company were fantastic after a long day of snowmobiling. A Maine ITS trail runs right thru the grounds and the trail is groomed nightly. The Lodges are comfortable and there's much room for parking trucks/trailers.

Northern Outdoors is the best. I've been there several times snowmobiling and its definitely one of my favorite trail systems to ride. The rooms are very clean and the staff is awesome. I would highly recommend checking out Coburn Mountain as the view is amazing.

The family and I stayed in the Tamarack, over Thanksgiving week. Overall, very nice and cozy cabin. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to experience any of the resort offerings (brewery and restaurant) so I can’t comment on those services. The staff was friendly and professional. One downside, the cabin we stayed in didn’t have dressers or closets. We LITERALLY lived out of our suitcases. We still made the most of it. Thanks for the hospitality.

We had an excellent stay here during fall foliage. We stayed in the cozy cabins, which were perfect for two people. We had drinks at the bar and the bartender and the drinks were great. Prices are good. Location is excellent. Can't wait to go back!.

Our stay in one of the log cabins named Mouse Maple was great. The cabin had all of the amenities needed to enjoy the place and it was clean. The fishing trips we went on were terrific. We caught some salmon and had fun navigating through some of the white water in the Kennebunk River. Chris was a great fishing guide! His knowledge of the river and ability to catch fish was terrific. We enjoyed the restaurant at the lodge, the atmosphere, the customer service, craft beers and food were all very good.. The check-in was flawless and the remote checkout was fine after a day of fishing.

Northern Outdoors went above and beyond for us to have a safe and fun experience.The place was very clean, guides were nice and very professional. Every member of the staff we interacted with was nice and happy to help. The facilities are awesome, everything you need for a phenomenal get away. Thank you, we will be back!

The staff was absolutely amazing. The food was great, as were the drinks. The pool was very cold though, really only great to go in during the middle of the day. When we went into our room it was clean but there was a dirty sock from someone else’s stay under the bed. Overall we will be returning for another rafting trip.

We accidentally went to the wrong Northern Outdoors location for our scheduled trip. (A rather embarrassing thing!) We explained to the staff what happened and they said "No problem, we can fit you in here today". That was quite a relief as me and my wife planned an overnight stay for the two of us with the rafting trip the focal point. It would have been a disaster (of our own fault) but they saved the day for us.All the staff were friendly, professional, and helpful. The resort is very clean and very well organized. The rafting trip was a total blast and the lunch food was great. Would highly recommend it and will be booking a trip for next year.

We did the all day rafting and it was the most fun I’ve had in a while! John was our guide and he was truly the best. Every guide was energetic and friendly and loads of fun though. The lunch they cook for you was impressively good. The rooms were nice and cozy. The cabins themselves don’t have good signal or wifi (the main building does). But you’re in nature anyway and it was nice to unplug! HIGHLY recommend!

The rafting trip was excellent. Staff great and equipment all in good shape. the restaurant had a very good menu and the food was excellent. The cozy cabin is a cabin in the woods. comfortable and clean. The tents we would not recommend.Great trip with the family

We ate dinner here, and it was so good! The atmosphere was fun, the staff was so friendly, and the food was delicious. Their beer was also so good! There is so much to do here besides eat, like renting a snowmobile, going whitewater rafting, playing arcade games, hanging out in the hot tub, and honestly so much more. I highly recommend stopping by here if you are in the area!

I’ve enjoyed a lot of rafting from different companies but this one makes it the best. The lodge was pretty cozy, and housed 6 of us calmly. Everything was working perfectly. The site had its own pool, hot tub. The rafting departure was easy, just a couple yards away from where we are staying was the bus and the equipments. And People here are very nice! I look forward to return near future.**Also John was an amazing guide**
