If you are looking to get away from it all for a few days and reconnect with nature, maybe go for a hike, see some amazing foliage, or like me, catch some fish... Little Lyford is a great place to visit. The facility has been upgraded in recent years, and they continue to staff the friendliest crew. The cabins are...

My first trip to Little Lyford did not disappoint. The crew were friendly, knowledgeable and easily engaged in informative conversation about the immediate and surrounding areas. The food was first class - fresh, well-cooked, and plentiful. We caught over 100 Brook Trout as a group during two mornings of fishing, and enjoyed hikes and swimming each afternoon. The buildings are...

More superb hospitality from the Appalachian Mountain Club. Well-maintained cabins, lovely kerosene lamps, plenty of hot showers, all of it cared for by a crew who cook divinely -- and then step out of the kitchen to give trail and gear information. Free kayaks and canoes and all the stars you can count. A glorious place that I will come...

What more can I say! How wonderful to be away from technology in such beauty. The staff are wonderful, the food is unbelievable! We will definitely be back.

I had a very relaxing and fun time in Lyford and highly recommend it. This was a great first stop on the way to Baxter which was only 2 hours further; it provided a great staging point. Kudos to Ashley and Jamie who were very friendly and accommodating. The food was fantastic and just kept coming to the table! We...

Two nights in the Green Drake cabin were a tranquil base for our anniversary weekend. We swam, paddled, hiked and enjoyed the generous portions of good, family-style meals with other guests. On two occasions we had ponds to ourselves. We were sufficiently calmed to enjoy watching a snapping turtle search out the perfect spot to lay her eggs (in the...

My grandfather and I and signed up for a moderate flyfishing outing through Road Scholar and had a great time. The cabins are cozy with a wood stove and sink. The staff were all very friendly and the food was dynamite good ol' home cooking.

This fly fishing instructional vacation put us in touch with nature, while eating like kings. The fishing guides were terrific, and the facility was excellent. It would have been nice to have running water in the cabins, the the cabins were clean and bug free. If you want to go off the grid and feel at one with nature, Little...
