A Fully Equipped Motel for Hikers

The Stratton Motel has been a popular choice for many thru-hikers who enjoyed our old-fashioned hospitality. The section hikers, NOBOs, and SOBOs take a short break from the trail by relaxing at our hostels and private rooms. To check out our sister facility, The Farmhouse in Rangeley, CLICK HERE.
  
Our rates are very hiker friendly, and we can accommodate pets. Reservations are recommended, but not required. 

Call us and we'll be happy to drive out and pick you up at the trailhead if we're not too busy. If you anticipate reaching town over the weekend and you have a mail drop at the post office, we can help with that too.

You can have your hiking gear shipped to our motel from the manufacturers prior to your arrival so that you can set out on the hike as soon as possible. Rangeley and Stratton are very "hiker-friendly" towns, and you're sure to choose us when you experience our warmth and hospitality firsthand.
