“Resort of last resort”
Reviewed 28 December 2008

We were looking for a place that was not at the Sunday River Ski area that would be family friendly and a good value. The staff has been most friendly and helpful, but that barely makes up for the appalling quality of the rooms, the endless noise of adjoining rooms and the 1950's decor. To date, not one of the five people in the condo were able to sleep due to the breathing from the neighboring rooms(apparently paper is the material of choice for the the walls), the screeching from the of the floors, and the generator sound from the mammoth RV parked just outside the door (made of crepe paper too). Hopefully one of us will collapse from exhaustion and get a nights sleep.

We do apologize for the noise. Christmas week and Vacation Week in February are our absolute noisiest. We do everything we can to accommodate people at all times and especially during our high traffic periods, but sometimes there is nothing we can do. Again, our apologies.
