great location! close to town, sunday river, etc. room was pretty clean, but very dated. terrible pans to cook on. no matter what i did, everything stuck terribly! holes, rips, and see through spots in almost every towel and washcloth. hole in our bedspread. have to pay to do laundry. $1/load and my clothes were not dry after the dry cycle. doorknob to bathroom didn't lock, had to yank on the door to open it. a.c. in the 'master' bedroom leaked and only had one knob that you had to pry off to use on two controls, which left you not knowing which setting you were putting it on. the a.c. in the other bedroom was newer and worked great. hot tub jets were not working for a couple of the days we were there. kids loved the indoor pool, and the water was clean, but there was scuzz around the water rim of the pool. deck chairs are old, faded plastic with old, faded cushions. paint is peeling/scuffed everywhere. the staff is awesome, though. super nice, helpful. housekeeping comes every day to empty trash, replenish towels, and even do your dishes if you are out. loved the free access to the canoes and kayaks. plenty of board games for kids/families available in the lobby. small library, but very limited authors. if you love lillian jackson braun, you will be happy. at least 1/4 of the books are by her. 1/4 are non-fiction. ping pong, tennis, small playset for the kids, horseshoes. only one tv in the whole unit, though, which is not enough for six people on vacation. they have a satellite dish, but not the best package, so very few kids channels to choose from. the wifi didn't work the entire week we were there. i would give this less stars if not for the staff and extras.
