I was there as a companion to a fisherman. The fishing was delightful for my friend who caught a decent number of land locked salmon. Clearly this has been a grand place to stay in the past, a great history. I found the food and accommodation disappointing. We were greeted by a very friendly young Romanian who immediately offered us coffee, appreciated after a 4 hour drive starting at 4.30 in the morning. The coffee was only luke warm though and undrinkable. Gas stations serve much better coffee. On the whole, the standard of food in Maine is superb and I would have expected only the best at a Lodge with this reputation. There was no selection though and the beef served (after beef soup) was dry and tasteless. The screen door to the porch of our cabin was badly shredded and we would not have been able to sit out there in the evening. The bedside lights did not work and the only other light in the bedroom was too high for either of us to reach. I realize this is a 100 year old cabin, but..... On a brighter note, the guide provided for my companion, Roland, was truly excellent. He knows the river well and is also polite, knowledgeable and a good teacher. A great place to stay for the fishing and history.
