Skied to Gorman Chairback Lodge from amc's Litle Lyford lodge. Found a friendly staff ready to accommodate at a moments notice. This is a winter wonder land of unforgettable charm with food that won't disappoint.

While still a rustic hut experience, Gorman Chairback takes it up notch! Fresh linens on the bed, warm fire started for our arrival...it was and always is, a lovely stay! The food was delicious and plentiful, the staff accommodating and helpful--they even gave our daughter a special sweet treat in her bag lunch. The AMC trails are a joy to...

If you are into winter, cross-country skiing and/or snowshoeing - this is an experience not to be missed. This was my 5th annual winter trip to Gorman Chairback and it was spectacular, as always. The cabins are lovely and I admit to springing for the newer cabins which have a private bathroom - worth the little extra in my opinion....

Nothing short of excellent. This was our 5th winter trip to Gorman and the team there is fantastic. Kudos to Brent and croo (yup CROO) for everything. I have dietary restrictions and they just seemed to get, better than most 5 star restaurants. Nathan, the food was fantastic. Thank you all!

What a place! the staff are friendly and helpful, the food was great and our cabin was so rustic, it was the oldest one there (#8). On our arrival, the stove was already lit and the cabin was toasty warm just what we needed after the 13km cross-country ski.

I just returned from an overnight at the Gorman Chairback lodge and I won't stop thinking of it for some time! The staff goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome and comfortable. The food was excellent... haddock, wild rice, asparagus, soup, salad bread for dinner and a great fruit/granola spread for breakfast on top of the french toast...

This lodge is beautiful and new and amazing. The croo loved their job and we're all very happy and social. The food was excellent. I highly recommend starting there. One of the staff said cabin 7 is the best, as it is the farthest from the others and has a great view. I would love to return with my wife...

This was our fourth visit to Gorman (and our third during the winter) and perfection describes all of our stays. From the cabins to the main lodge to the variety of trails and the family style breakfasts/dinners, everything is simply outstanding. The staff goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome and to do everything they can to insure...

This AMC lodge is beautiful, staff friendly and attentive, meals deliciously filling and our cozy cabin warm and inviting. The 8.2 mile trail from the winter parking lot is wide and well groomed. Overall...a wonderful relaxing outdoor experience. The staff bring your gear in by snowmobile and for an extra fee they will ferry those in your party who don't...

To get to this cabin you cross country ski or snow shoe. The main lodge is very new and beautiful. The staff is attentive and friendly and the food is delicious. Even better when you consider how far away from anything you are. No cell phone coverage! What a vacation. The woods and lakes are beautiful. Hot showers, hot sauna,...
