It's not always how fast you go, it's what you experience along the way
5 Lakes Lodge brings a whole new meaning to the term SNOWMOBILING.
You'll be spoiled forever by some of the best groomed, and most scenic, snowmobile trails you will ever ride - the JoMary and Katahdin Region snowmobile experence.
5 Lakes Lodge is located midway between ITS 86 and ITS 83 on the uncrowded "Katahdin Loop Trail". We serve as the home for the Jo Mary Riders Snowmobile Club, and have two big Bombardier trail groomers on site. Our dedication to trail grooming is second to none. Our trails are wide, flat and very well marked.
Although we're only seven miles from the town of Millinocket by road, by trail we're quite a ways from any of the other lodging facilities. Our guests enjoy the ability to get "First Tracks" out of the lodge on most mornings.
For more scenery, trail info and trail maps, visit our Katahdin Region snowmobile trail page.

"It's difficult to conceive of a region uninhabited by man. We habitually presume his presence and influence everywhere . . . But here not even the surface had been scarred by man, but it was a specimen of what God saw fit to make this world."
Henry David Thoreau wrote that on his first visit to Mt. Katahdin in 1846. Not much has changed in the past 160 years.
Simply put, Maine's Katahdin Region is a very special place. Mother Nature has blessed us with an abundance of natural beauty; crystal clear lakes, lush forests, magnificent mountains and powerful rivers.
Small communities. Friendly people. A clean environment. No traffic. No crowds. No rat race. Abundant wildlife. And a myriad of recreational opportunities.
What more could you ask for?
Remote feeling, Yet convenient
5 Lakes Lodge is located directly on the Katahdin Loop snowmobile trail in the area known as the Katahdin-Jo Mary Forest.
Routes 11 & 6 form the boundary of the largest area of undeveloped wilderness east of the Mississippi River. And it's right at our doorstep.
Yet, we're conveniently located just 20 miles from I-95 (exit 244), 75 miles from Bangor International Airport, two hours from Bar Harbor and an easy five hour drive from Boston. Millinocket Regional Airport, with a 5000 ft. runway, is just 8 miles away. Charter flights are readily available.
