Loved the hot tub and heated pool. Other than check in didn't interact with the staff. Large events caused some issues as the golfing tee times were terrible to unavailable for the whole weekend. Room was clean and comfortable. Don't like early check out time

We came here recently to do some hiking. It's very quiet during the Summer as you might expect, but their main chair lift is running and will take you to the tops of the mountain for $15. Most people that were here were doing mountain biking which looked like fun. You attach your bike to the lift, then bike down.... More

This was our second time at Sunday River during the summer. We loved the easy access to the mountain-biking on the slopes and the heated pool and hot tub were both very inviting after a long day out on adventures. The restaurant on site had very few vegetarian options for our family so we headed into Bethel. We found the... More

Summer Vacation is not worth it here. Their facilities are meant for small kids, say children 12 and under. The disc golf course wasn't really a course, just a random cluster of cages. We had thought we could spend an entire day here with all the activities they advertised, but a day quickly turned into 5 mins after surveying the... More

I'm pretty new to skiing. I have skied in New York and Vermont, but you can't beat the Maine skiing. I love Sunday River, it so huge, has so many slopes and it absolutely beautiful out there. It never gets crowded as in NY and VT. Me and my friends always are staying at the resort and it so nice... More

The Summit lodge [ I think I have the name right -- at least it's close] is well equipped and well staffed. The dining room called Camp is OK -- decent burgers anyway if a bit pricey. The pool/spa/and hiking trails are very good. A very nice ride [picnic too] is the chondola [chair and gondola lift] ride at the... More

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
