It’s gonna be GREAT!!
Northeast Whitewater Rafting is thrilled to announce another new venture in our continued growth! We are taking over the operations of the Hawks Nest Lodge and restaurant in the West Forks. Long time owners Sarah and Pete Dostie are headed west to be closer to family and handing over the keys to their much loved and successful business. This acquisition fills a much needed gap in the growth of Northeast Whitewater and we are focused on continuing to provide excellent accommodation, food and beverage. We are committed to retaining the dedicated staff who have made the Hawks Nest a warm and welcoming stop for many as well as creating new year round positions. It is with gratitude we forge ahead with this new challenge and thank Sarah & Pete for entrusting us to make this place our own and welcome a new day with fresh insight to the West Forks. It is our goal to make this transition as seamless as possible so you will find it as welcoming as ever.
We never could have imagined that any of this would be possible when we started out in 2007 with nothing more than a shed, all the way up in Pittston Farm. This forward momentum would not be possible without the great support and diligence of Jeremy, Chastity, and Derek working relentlessly all year, as well as all of our loyal seasonal staff coming back year after year to make it all happen. Of course, we can’t forget about all of our incredibly loyal guests that come back every season and have been just as much a part of this growth as anyone. We’re so grateful for all of you and can’t wait for you to join us again this season.
Abby Freethy, entrepreneur & creator of her brand Northwoods Gourmet Girl, in Greenville, while remaining steadfast at the forefront of her company, has begun collaborating with us on her culinary expertise and will be heading up any food, beverage & decor changes within the Hawks Nest Lodge transition as well as elevating our Shirley yurt accommodations. Additionally, we will be working with Abby to offer delicious additions to all of our outing experiences from our Shirley location.
We are open for business in both the Moosehead Lake Region and the West Forks! All of our experiences are open for booking. Please follow along and watch the transition unfold on what will be a great new adventure.
