Hike the Appalachian Trail or Bigelow Mountains, bike or ski Sugarloaf, snowshoe or nordic ski the Maine Huts & Trails system, snowmobile or ATV over hundreds of miles of maintained trails, and experience the outdoors in Maine. The nearly one-hundred year old historic Herbert Grand Hotel & Pub in Kingfield, Maine is one of a kind. The hotel is 15 miles from Sugarloaf Ski Resort in Maine's western mountains and near the Maine Huts and Trails hiking system and the Appalachian Trail. We combine the quirkiness of a historic hotel with the rich cultural history of the mountains of Maine. All 26 guest rooms were renovated in 2016 and we opened McGregor's Pub in-time for the 2017-2018 ski season at Sugarloaf and in 2018, we were listed on the National Historic Registry.

We stayed here because it was one of the few pet friendly hotels in the area. I made reservations personally. Upon checking in it felt like having our dog with us made us pariahs. We received a cold reception and felt as if showing up was putting the woman at the front desk out

We loved this hotel! It is updated but still has its historical charm. There’s a neat bar/lounge area, the staff is friendly, the rooms are clean and it is reasonably priced. No there are no TVs or elevators but there is WiFi and the rooms have their own air conditioning window

We stayed at the Herbert Grand Hotel after two nights on the Maine Hut to Hut Trail. It was close to the end of our trail hike and chose it accordingly. It is a clean hotel with lots of history. For example there are transom windows above each room door that open. The hotel

Thank you so much for staying with us and for taking the time to leave a review. With respect to the noise, the hotel is located on a main street and there isn't much that can be done to change that, however, in the future, please let us know that you have difficulty with the noise and we can move you to a quieter room in the rear of the building. With respect to the televisions, we debated installing new televisions in the rooms in 2016 when we renovated the hotel and opted against it for several reasons. First and foremost, we wanted to keep the early 20th century feel for the rooms and there wasn't anywhere unobtrusive that we could stick a television set. Second, there is high speed WiFi throughout the hotel and in the rooms and most people just stream video these days. Third, we offer a large screen television and cushy couches in the lobby, together with a billiards table for guests to socialize and enjoy.

Thank you for staying with us and thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Although there isn't much that the hotel can do to curtail the street noise, we are happy to place guests in the rear rooms where things are slightly quieter. I apologize about the missed daily maid service. It is probably something that the staff missed. Our housekeeping team tries to catch everything, however, sometimes things get missed. We hope that you had a safe travel and we hope to see you again someday.

This is an old hotel that shows it's age, both good and bad. Wonderful woodwork details, large comfortable lobby, wide stairway and antiques scattered around the hallways. It's age shows in the bathrooms, carpeting, some of the furniture and a lack of amenities. We've stayed there to ski Sugarloaf, only when other lodging is unavailable. It's okay for a few nights. The prices reflect that. If you're looking for plush luxury accommodations for cheapo prices, you're going to be constantly disappointed.

"If you want to increase your chance of seeing the ghosts, book a room on the third floor!"
"3rd floor was very quiet"
"There's no elevators and it's 3 floors so either pack light or leave the bulk of your things in your vehicle."
"Request a room out back."
"Dog friendly rooms are available, but be sure to specify in advance."
