Meet the owners of New England Outdoor Center.
Matt and Wendy Polstein are the proud owners and operators of the New England Outdoor Center (also know as The New England Whitewater Center), which Matt founded in 1982. Matt is considered to be one of the pioneers of Maine whitewater rafting. At NEOC, the owners are definitely ‘in the shop.’ Evidence of their hands-on personal work ethic is obvious at every turn. From Matt’s involvement doing the excavating and construction work for new resort buildings to Wendy’s role in planning the interior design and restaurant menus, both are intimately involved with every aspect of running this Maine outdoor adventure resort. They also serve as Registered Maine Guides for whitewater rafting trips organized through the resort.
