I stayed here in late January when the snow was about a foot deep and the temperatures were in the single digits. The air was clear and crisp and the view from our cabin of the lake and Mt. Katahdin was simply spectacular!
The staff was incredibly friendly at check-in and during our entire stay. Our cabin was clean, modern, comfortable and fully furnished with everything we needed. Our cabin did not have a television in it (which was nice, in that it caused us to sit and engage in good 'ol time evening chit chat)! We were here for a snowmobiling weekend and the snowmobiles were just a 30 yard walk from our front door. When we returned from the end of a day outdoors, it was nice to retreat to a warm, airy and comfortable home. The lodge had a fireplace, hot coffee available all day long and a wonderful bar / restaurant (River Drivers Restaurant) with delicious appetizers, soups, sandwiches and full meals.
Note: for people who rely on cell phones; coverage was pretty good in Millinocket but drops off as you approach Twin Pines. There is WiFi throughout most cabins, but I found the signal strength to be weak to non-existent in our cabin (in Winter). I had no cell coverage from the cabin either (Verizon) and some of my ATT friends experienced the same. In order to check in with my wife and tell her the stories of all I saw while exploring the outdoors, I went to the lodge building where WiFi was very strong and where I was able to obtain VZW cell service as they have a Verizon Network Extender in the building.
Definitely recommend Twin Pine Camps and the New England Outdoor Center, Summer or Winter, for couples, families or groups of friends who want to get away and into a semi-remote area in the northern New England wilderness.
