Located on the shore of Long Pond near Greenville, in Maine’s Moosehead Lake Region, and surrounded by 66,000-acres of AMC-owned conservation land, Gorman Chairback is the newest stop on AMC’s popular lodge-to-lodge ski route, as well as a spectacular wilderness destination on its own. Gorman Chairback offers unlimited opportunities for hiking and skiing on 70 miles of AMC-maintained trails, paddling and fishing for native brook trout, or simply enjoying the quiet beauty of the region. Newly refurbished private cabins include queen beds, wood stoves, and gas lamps. Home-cooked meals are served in the main lodge.

Kerri and Charlie have built an amazing team - all very pleasant and so customer focused. At a time when all of us could use a break, they have designed a way to provide rest, relaxation, and adventure for us while keeping customers and crew safe. Finally, don't expect to lose weight, the food is the best we've had from AMC - ex. fresh bread of some type with each dinner that was spectacular if you could find room for it.

Stayed in a one room lodge that had a great view of the lake and rustic. Moved to a new lodge that had two bedrooms and a bathroom. This was nice for night time potty run. The food was incredible one night there was a shrimp and pasta dish that was very tasty. Would have liked the recipe. The staff was very nice and helpful over what trails to use. Can't wait for next year.

There were stunning views over the frozen lake and even better ones if you venture out onto the ice. The staff were amazing and very kind. The main lodge felt very cozy and rustic. The bunkhouse is very simple, but has everything you need from it. This is a great place to go to get off the grid for a couple days, especially because of the limited cell service

We skied 7 miles from Little Lyford camp (more rustic) over the Lodge-to-Lodge trail which is a joyous sleigh-ride thanks to relentless trail grooming the AMC does. The Appalachian Mountain Club deserves high praise for bringing these century-old lumber and sports camps into a new era. Arriving mid-winter on skis to find our luggage already sledged in, to purchase an adult beverage, to warm in a magnificent pond side lodge, to relax in leather chairs in front of a toasty wood stove and be served heaping bowls of hearty, health-conscious food, to sleep in a large private wood cabin with stove, to be off-the-grid completely, to sauna and shower with hot water, to awake to an abundant camp breakfast, to ski off the next day totally pampered and rested... this is priceless. Not to be missed by any cross country skier, snow-shoe enthusiast or winter hiker. Huge thank you to lodge co-managers Carrie & Charlee and the rest of the hardworking, friendly staff. Cannot recommend this highly enough.

After xc skiing to Little Lyford and then Gorman Chairback AMC lodges for the second winter in a row, we have decided to make it an annual tradition. These lodges are in a beautiful, peaceful edge of Maine’s 100 Mile Wilderness. The seven mile ski from parking lot to lodge, then again between the lodges, keeps out the riff-raff and excuses you for over-indulging in the wonderful meals provided by the delightful staff at each location. The cabins are small, rustic, and WELL-warmed by their wood stoves. Some even accept doggy visitors. The sauna is a welcome treat after a day playing in the snow. The photo is from Little Lyford lodge, looking toward some of the cabins.
