My husband and I recently spent our honeymoon at the Northern Outdoors Kennebec center. I can't say how impressed I was with the facility, rafting, and staff. Our cabin was immaculate and adorable: the appliances were new, furniture was clean and comfortable, and the bed and bedding were excellent quality. We were pleasantly surprised that staff came to change our towels and tidy up the room each day. The cabin was secluded enough with its own porch and a wooded backdrop, but it was still a quick walk to the lodge.
Each and every staff member that we interacted with during our trip was extremely friendly and helpful (no exaggeration). Of particular note were Elaine (at the front desk) and Dave (rafting guide), who made us feel welcome and safe, and made sure we had fun! Dave was a very skilled guide and provided interesting stories about the rafting history and surrounding area.
The beer at the brewery was awesome, and the food was surprisingly good (although a little heavy). Although I loved the homemade mac and cheese, my only suggestion is to offer more lighter fare options such as salads, yogurts, and whole grains. Otherwise, keep up the good work! We will definitely be coming back in years to come.
