About North Country Lodge

When you plan your hunting trips, you expect the best, with “no surprises.” The Goodman family established North Country Lodge in 1985, always making sure that guests enjoy the very best Maine hunting experience.

Location, Location, Location

North Country Lodge is nestled among the pines and spruce in Aroostook County of northern Maine. The region comprises the largest wilderness area east of the Mississippi River. We are 11 miles north of Patten Maine, and approximately 25 miles east of Maine’s largest state park (Baxter State Park) and the Maine Woods National Monument.

For well over a century, Aroostook County has offered the finest Black Bear, Whitetail deer, and moose hunting on the North American continent.

This magnificent hunters’ paradise, with hardwood ridges, rolling hills, swamps and bogs, provide the setting for an exciting and memorable experience in the vast North Maine Woods.

Maine Guides

Along with a full staff of guides, Brett and Aliza Gerrish have a vast knowledge of the region and the game that resides here. Brett is also licensed Forester, who’s knowledge will not only add to your experience, but help aid in tracking and recovery.  Our guides are active all year, either preparing for your visit, or working diligently with outdoor organizations and wildlife biologists to protect the game and the privilege to hunt.  We are so grateful for the opportunity to continue with offering the absolute best hunting experience. Which was built from the ground up, by the Goodman family.

The Goodman Family

 37 years ago the Goodman Family created North Country Lodge to guide hunters and outdoor enthusiasts throughout Northern Maine.  Throughout the years it has been our pleasure to have been a part of so many hunting experiences, from seeing a ten year old youth take down his first Maine black bear, watching a moose hunter pull the trigger on a trophy bull moose and guiding older hunters on their last hunt. It was never a job but a privilege to create such wonderful memories with all of our guests.

That being said it is time to past the torch to a younger couple, Brett and Aliza Gerrish.  Brett and Aliza will bring North Country Lodge into the next generation of hunters.  They have the skills, experience and enthusiasm to provide North Country Lodge guests the service they are accustomed to. 

Thank you very much for the opportunity to serve so many of you.
