What an awesome spot. I'm a foody overlander from VT where I'm used to great farm-table dining and, to be honest, I didn't expect much from this remote establishment that caters mainly to hunters and snowmobilers. We were camping out of our expensive overland vehicles (Land Rovers, Toyota Land Cruisers, late model Jeeps) on our dirt road expedition from NH... More

As a part-time resident of the north woods of Maine, I frequent Pittston Farms on a regular basis to grab a bite to eat while snowmobiling and hunting. I have always found the previous owners through the years very accommodating especially when assistance is needed for flat tire or a break down of some sort. People helping people in these... More

I usually do not reply to peoples reviews on here. Whereas I feel everyone is entitled to their opinion. However, seriously???? To start with, we ALWAYS make accommodations for our guests to do their laundry and we do it for them at no cost. But to have someone just stop in and request to use our dryer when are not... More

For guests that want to breath in great fresh air, be covered with a blanket of stars and take in Maine wildlife such as moose, bears, deer this is your spot. We stayed in the motel behind the main lodge, room 5. It has cable tv, private bath, bunk beds and it is pet friendly. You can also park right... More

There's a story here: I booked 2 nights at the Seeboomook Wilderness Campground and since we were traveling via motorcycle, I took the precaution of calling a few folks in the area to check the condition of the roads. "Rough and dusty, dusty and rough" was the given description. We're resilient and up for adventure, so off we went. The... More

They have some of the best food I've ever had! Definitely recommend the grilled cheese, moose burger, or buffalo chicken sandwich. They also have friendly people and a wonderful homey environment 10/10.

Webpage boasts about the fishing. Owners know little about fishing. This is primarily a stop-over for snowmobilers on a trip. Cabins are run-down. Many windows are covered in plastic. Others do not have screen or do not open. Food is below average. We left a day early but were charged for the night because we had booked for three nights.... More

Had lunch there yesterday....icy drive in but no problem with 4 wheel drive. Outstanding lunch, large portions. Met and talked with Jen about the campground....really looking forward to staying there and getting to know the people and the place. So far, more than impressed.

You can follow the snowmobile trail in for lunch in the lodge or stay in a cabin or carriage house. Food is great, lodging is quaint. Staff is hilarious, but helpful. They are the ones grooming the trails too, so you get a trail report a couple times a day. Scenic and filled with wildlife.

Pittston Farms was established in the late 1800's. Through time, this historic place has had some major overhauls. The new owner's, Guy & Jenn Mills, have made this out of the way establishment a very pleasant experience. The location is what it is supposed to be. Pittston Farms cater to the avid sportsman no matter how young & old. No... More
