Medawisla (the Abenaki word for loon) is the newest destination in our Maine Wilderness Lodges network, and an ideal spot for exploring the famed 100-Mile Wilderness. Built on AMC conservation land and located at the confluence of Second Roach Pond and the Roach River, seven miles from Kokadjo and northeast of Greenville, Medawisla offers opportunities for hiking, paddling, fly fishing, canoe camping, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, steps away from your private cabin or bunkhouse accommodations. Features of the area include private cabins, with kitchenette or deluxe without, or shared bunkhouse accommodations and outdoor grilling area. Fresh-cooked breakfast and dinner included, as well as a trail lunch provided. Lodge-to-lodge skiing opportunities on AMC’s 80 miles of groomed trails. Guided activities straight from your front porch, and free access to watercraft including kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards for guests.
‘The only dark sky region left in the eastern 2/3 of the US. A beautiful lodge, great food, year-round access. Hiking, paddling, biking, skiing….and telescopes! A partner in the Mountains of Stars outreach program.’
