There are several options for lodging in the Millinocket area, but we encourage everyone to stay right at the wedding site (Twin Pines Cabins) for maximum ease and enjoyment! The options are listed below, in order of distance from the wedding site.
Twin Pines Cabins
The New England Outdoor Center maintains 11 fully furnished rustic cabins here at the Twin Pines Lodge. Each cabin has electricity & running water as well as a full kitchen, bathroom, maid service, and a personal canoe! All bedding, towels, dishware and cookware are provided. There're plenty of things to do here, with an indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi, lakefront beach, etc. And the best part is that you don't have to travel to/from the wedding... just walk out your front door!
The cabins accommodate between 6 and 13 people... large enough for those big family groups! You may also want to make arrangements to share a cabin with other friends and family who will be attending our wedding. Check out the website below to see which cabin would be the right size for you.
When making your reservation, be sure to reference reservation #22634 and indicate that you are attending the Lee/Haskell wedding. Guests will only have to pay the minimum rate per cabin, and additional guests over the minimum number will not be charged for. For more information, see their web site at:
or call (800) 766-7238 and ask for Linda.
If you’re willing to share a cabin, but don’t know who’s coming or would like to meet new friends, let us know and we’ll help match up groups. Ryan & Heather – (207) 732-9253.
Big Moose Inn
The Big Moose Inn Cabins & Campground is less than 5 minutes away from the wedding site. Inn rooms, cabins, and camp sites are all options at this fine spot. The adjacent Big Moose Restaurant serves good home-cooked meals in a relaxing atmosphere.
or call (207) 723-8391.
Baxter State Park
For you camping enthusiasts, the wedding site is a mere 8 miles from the southern gate of Baxter State Park. In Maine's largest state park you'll find 11 wilderness campgrounds. Most of them have lean-tos, a couple have cabins, all have tent sites. Reservations can only be made in person or by US Mail, and the popular campsites/cabins get booked up quickly, so if you're interested in staying here we'd advise that you make your reservations early in the year (as soon as possible after January 2nd.) Check it out online at:
or call (207) 723-5140.
Big Eddy Campground
Another camping option is this tent-only facility located on the beautiful Penobscot River. A favorite of local river enthusiasts, you'll find plenty of kayakers, fly-fishermen, and white-water rafters in this area. Very clean and well-maintained campgrounds with the usual "picnic table and fire ring" accomodations. To the left is a time-lapse photograph of the night sky that I shot from Big Eddy Campround in the summer of 2002. To learn more, visit their web site:
or call (207) 350-1599 or (207) 882-7323.
Finally, a real hotel! If you really want cable TV and room service, then the Katahdin Inn is where it's at. Indoor pool, spa, exercise room (why would you want to exercise in a room when you can hike Katahdin?), game room, restaurant, laundry, and all the usual hotel stuff. When calling for reservations, indicate that you are attending our wedding to receive a discounted rate.
