“Wonderful fishing resort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

From the time you arrive until you leave you are guaranteed an adventure not to be forgotten. Fly fish in beautiful Grand Lake Stream or cast in any of the numerous rivers or lakes. Your guide will make sure you have a fine day--a successful catch and a fabulous lunch. Fishing on the lakes and rivers in a Grand Laker Canoe and taking in the fresh outdoors is fantastic. Would love to do this every year, and some do. Back at the resort you can tell your fish tales and enjoy the hearty home-cooked meal. Plan to have fun!

Room Tip: Take your own fishing gear or let them put it together for you. Take warm clothing even in the mids...

Talk about being made to feel like you are one of the family! I had a great time and look forward to being with the folks at Weatherby's again. This is a true Maine tradition and and not to be missed.

One of my favorite trips of all time was to Weatherby's in early June 2011. I cannot thank Jeff, Frank and the rest of the staff enough for what turned out to be the trip of a lifetime. The fishing was phenomenal as I was guided by Jeff for two days fishing for smallies, and also caught some very impressive salmon fly fishing on Grand Lake Stream. The resort is pleasantly rustic with excellent food and customer service comparable, if not better, than a Ritz / Four Seasons type of stay. I can't say enough good things...I was blown away by these folks. I can't wait to go back next June. Cheers to Weatherby's for creating an experience that is truly unforgettable and at the same time keeping it affordable!

To get away from the "world" and spending mother & daughter time was well needed.
It was actually last year in May 2010 when this last minute get away was decided. We showed up at last minute and at our luck a cabin was ready for us. The kitchen staff were so0o wonderful at getting us alittle late dinner together to fill us up before the end of the day.

We had a roomy cottage with a rustic fire place & lots of logs for the fire. Which was easy to start. Two comfy chairs to enjoy the fire place, allowing us to talk and laugh.
It was a perfect. We slept well and woke to singing birds. We had a exciting breakfast.
We fished, laughed and got sunshine. When the world is spining to fast, this patch of heaven will live in our memories for diaries to come. Thank You.
I will remember

Room Tip: It's a spa for the soul.

My husband is a sport fishing captain/guide from Costa Rica so after a family reunion with my siblings and cousins we headed off to Weatherby's for a little alone time and fishing. My father, brother, and his girlfriend ended up tagging along and our romantic get away turned into a fantastic family trip with time for romance! From the moment we arrived we felt like we were at an old friends house! The staff and hosts were incredibly warm and welcoming. Our cabin was perfect! We had a fire going whenever we could and loved reading the journal with entries from past clients and their fishing tales. It is the perfect log cabin on the lake setting, and hearing the loons brought back childhood memories of summer camp in Maine.We fished with same guides everyday so we really got to know them and they us, which ultimately helped us have better fishing days. Their knowledge of the area and wildlife kept the conversations flowing, when it was time for talking! I have never been more comfortable spending all day in canoe as I was at Weatherbys! Picnic lunches on the side of the lake were gourmet treats and dinners were divine! Homemade meals with a gourmet touch! And there was nothing more relaxing then settling into our cozy cabin and reading by the fire after each long and fun packed day. We hope to return some day and hope to open our doors to the owners at our place in Costa Rica as well! Thanks Weatherbys...we will be back!

I wanted to write to extend my sincere thanks to Jeff and all his staff
members for providing an excellent experience for our program
participants. Last week we brought clients from the YMCA, all with varying
chronic illnesses. The food,accomodations,and service were all top notch.
More importantly though the individual care and attention that was
provided made the trip extremely memorable. All the guides were extremely
helpful and went above and beyond to make sure that our clients were
comfortable and safe. In many cases helping to lift clients in and out of
canoes safely and with care for the individual disabilities. Also, we
caught a lot of fish! The wait staff were very cheerful and helpful. In
many cases they went above and beyond for service adapting to individual
dietary needs for our clients. The food was also fabulous~ especially the
shore lunch!

Overall, as first time visitors to Weatherby's, we now understand why
Weatherby's is known as being one of the top fishing resorts in the
country. We would definitely like to return

Having never been to Maine fishing before, my fishing buddy and I found Weatherby's on line and decided to stay there after several e-mails with the owner (Jeff). We were not disappointed. Jeff went out of his way to make sure he customized our trip to meet our needs.

The first day he took us out to the St. Croix river where we caught more smallies than I can count. The second day he outfitted us with a canoe, truck, food, drink, equipment and instructions on how to find an isolated lake. Although, the fishing was slow that day, we had the lake to ourselves and the scenery and wildlife were beautiful.

The cabin was very comfortable and well equiped and the food in the dining room was beyond what you would expect. It all had a very warm family oriented feel to it and it was obviously important to Jeff that each guest have a very positive experience. We hope to return someday.
