Wi-Fi and Internet
Wi-Fi and internet are not available in all accommodations. We encourage our guests to enjoy conversations and the outdoors versus electronics. VCRs and tapes may be provided upon request.
We love kids! However, safety regulations in 1929 differ than those of today and due to the historic nature of the lodge, there are a few items to consider. Baluster spacing is wide and balcony railings are short, for this reason, the historic lodge and cabins are not recommended for small children.
Unity College Sky Lodge abides by State of Maine Eating and Lodging Rules. Each accommodation has limits to the maximum number of guests, for this reason cribs and cots are unavailable. Accommodation capacity limits are as follows:
- Aspen, Birch, and Cedar Cabins – 4 guests
- Mountain View Cabin – 6 guests
- Trails End Private Home – 8 guests
- Individual Guest Rooms – 2 guests
- Historic Lodge – 24 guests

Fireplaces and Wood Stoves

We invite you to use these items with care. If you are running low on wood, please text us at 207-742-7256 to have additional wood added to your account and delivered. Do not dump ashes in the trash, on the deck, lawn, or snow. At this time, the fireplaces in the historic lodge are unavailable for use.
Gas grills are available for use in the Summer season. If propane is empty, reach out to our staff and request a replacement can. Grill tools are provided and can be found in the kitchen.

Separate trash from recycling as appropriate. If your cabin home requires trash pick-up or additional bags text us at 207-742-7256. Do not leave trash outside. There’s no substitute for nature and trash can harm the wildlife.
