This review is for the Resort as a hotel, not for all the features typically found at ski resorts. Rooms are clean, pleasant, and comfortable. Dining area is well appointed. Although Sunny River's primary draw is in the ski season, our group was treated well during a summer tour of Maine. We stayed here several days, with two dinners and... More

Super delicious eggs Benny with asparagus and tomatoes. Lovely waitress and really responsive when we asked to have the music turned down. Did I mention that Camp as well as all sunday river establishments make the best bloody Mary's. Also very reasonable $10 for the Benny. Highly recommended.

We spent Easter weekend skiing at Sunday River. This was their last weekend of the season, and only one peak, Barker, remained open. The snow was going fast, but they made a huge effort to make what was left skiable. The skiing was definitely not for beginners, a fact that was clearly posted on the mountain. We got a great...

So glad you were able to visit us again! Since you were here for our last weekend (and experienced limited terrain), you must visit again when we're in the full swing of things. Thanks for the feedback! More

I have been skiing at Sunday River since 1970, and have seen it grow into the resort it is today. I can tell you without a doubt, it is the BEST resort in the eastern US. There is a trail there for everyone, the beginner to the person who needs a challenge every time they go down the slope. Two... More

Our family skis every year during spring break. However, for the past few years we have not been. We usually go out West but this year decided to head to Maine. They have many peaks (8 plus a little one unnamed.) They have many different ski trails ranging from green-double black. Our family has a husband and wife, 13, and... More

We arrived on a Sunday afternoon, so while there were plenty of skiers, we avoided any line-ups at rentals. The conditions were a little rough that day, but improved considerably the next morning after a night of grooming. Our seven year old was in ski school, which is well organized with great instructors and small class sizes. I was very... More

I don't ski but my significant other does. I stayed in the Lodge and worked while he played. I do wish it had been a bit more comfortable and less cool.

I love Sunday River, but hate the rental process. Two weeks ago it took 65 minutes to rent equipment. They installed a new piece of software and were quite apologetic, so I let it pass. Yesterday, it took 47 minutes to rent. There were 3 cash registers, where they had room for 5. 2 of the 3 were working intermittently.... More

Took my daughter for a day visit to Sunday River. She took a lesson in the morning and ski'd the rest of the day. All the staff were helpful in getting her the right equipment, lift tickets to make it an enjoyable day. We had breakfast in the lodge and I was able to sit and watch the mountain and... More
