Hi, my Wife and I (and our inlaws) will be traveling to Jackman from Dec. 26th through 29th. We are going to be staying at Sally's Cabins, and probably getting some snowmobiles to ride around on and doing some ice fishing. Is there anything we should not miss there?

Hmm... Quebec City is only 2 hours away. Will you have a car? It's a lovely city in the winter... cold, but quaint.

Jackman Maine should be an excellent location to spot moose, as moose alley is up there. Snowmobileing is the top thing to do, as they have many well groomed trails connecting many of the surrounding town up there, I believe they also have trails extending right up into Canada as well. I'm ot big on ice fishing, but they do alot of that up there as well. Cross country sking and snowshoeing are always fun. I don't know if your into hunting or how your trip lines up with the hunting season, but that area of the state is a major hunting area as well, moose, deer, bear.

In Quebec City, I would recommend Portofino's it's a great Italian restaurant. Very cozy atmosphere and friendly people.

I stayed at the Manoir Victoria, it was very nice.

Here's the blog about it: http://www.travelpod.com/travel-blog-entri...80640/tpod.html
