Traveled with another couple from Pa. to Me. for a week of stress free living. The accomodations at the Presidential were very comfortable and the cleaning staff was excellent. While some may object that the rooms were dated, we found the ambience reminescent of bygone Victorian days. The inn contained a children's play room, pool table, putting green, workout center and movie room. Like so many Catskill resorts, Poland Springs is beyond attracting big name celebrities and affluent guests. Unlike similar resorts of that period, Poland Springs has made the difficult transition to attracting a middle class with discretionary funds. Read: "an older crowd". Their next transition phase will almost certainly center on how to hook young families.
The meals were homestyle as billed and delicious. The staff was friendly and helpful. We recommend a visit to the Maine Museum. Staffer Elliott Levy is a walking encyclopedia of Maine ephemera, engaging and entertaining as he walks the visitor on a tour of this beautiful artistic Maine construction brought home from the 1893 World's Fair.
Our only disappointment was on the first day of our arrival. Torrential rains washed out the golf course which was already suffering due to severe greens damage from the Winter vortex. Showers continued through the week and made play difficult. We opted for the unlimited golf package but because of commitments to member tee times, on some days it was difficult to get a tee time before 1pm. We were told that the Resort experienced the wettest July in memory and it was telling on the many damaged areas and waterloged fairways. That said, the course layout is beautiful and challenging at any level.
We hope to return and would recommend PSR to our golfing friends.
