Went to Grants for the first time. The food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Cabins are rustic but very clean and well kept. Will definitely go back but next time I’ll be packing my fly rod as people were catching trout right off the shore in front of the cabins.
We dropped in on the restaurant via Acadian Seaplanes...it was a great trip and a great meal and I highly recommend. You will need to bring your own adult beverages. we had the prime rib...it was awesome! The desserts are a must as well and definitely go for the soup...we had a carrot soup that was absolutely delicious.
Beautiful setting, good fishing, terrific staff! We took motor boat out every day and did special Fly Fishing School with Tony. Caught 18 inch salmon and Chubb. Thanks John, Courtney, Larry, Samantha and Skyler! Hope to be back soon!
There is great fishing to be had for sure in this somewhat remote fly fishing only lake. I unfortunately have many complaints. I have for years spent time at another one of Maine's storied historic sporting camps and had nothing but five star stays with the unnamed camp, but Grants is not in the same league. When I arrived home I picked up a call from the owner of Grants camp to be accused of skipping out on my almost $600 bill for a one night stay with a boat and nothing else. Wow! Not good considering the the paid for in full receipt was on the counter next to my cell phone. We also had the same experience with staff smoking all over the grounds as well as asking about hiking and having the staff member say that he never hikes and has no idea. Our cabin we stayed in was up a steep hill from the lake and has a set of wooden stairs to the dock, and water that is all crooked from age and is dangerous for most most to descend. We also noticed that there is a play set that is all over grown and also in disrepair. For a one night stay that cost almost $600 for two I would choose one of the many other great sporting camps in the state. The only reason I gave it a 2 star rating is because the fishing is very amazing, and the body of water is special.…
This past October a group of 11 we were up grouse /woodcock hunting in Maine at Grant’s Kennebago Camps. The camp is located in some of the best grouse/ woodcock country, which was evident by the number of contacts we had produced. The hospitality is second to none! Grant’s is an outstanding operation, the facilities are wonderful, the food was amazing. The staff is first class. Speaking to the other hunters during dinner every other guest we spoke to had nothing but compliments for the entire operation. I can’t wait till next year to head up back up to Grant’s.
