Vacationland Estates on Dow Farm Rd in Island Falls, Maine, is a great spot for the right person. It is close to the ATV and snowmobile trails. There is golf next door and a lake at the bottom of the hill. I like the location and all it has to offer, but the facility needs some updating. The staff was... More

Rustic or rundown? Out-doorsy or out-dated? Remote or isolated? Island Park is in the middle of nowhere; distant from restaurants and shopping but right in the middle of miles of muddy ATV and snowmobile paths. This is probably a great place for families who will spend most of their days outdoors - just be sure to bring lots of quarters... More

We have wanted to get back to Maine for awhile now and a week came open for us at Vacationland Estates Resort in Island Falls Maine. We were there from Labor Day weekend to the following Saturday. This is a real out of the way resort, it is located on a hillside with nice views of the mountains and it... More

We had a week vacation in mid August. The weather was beautiful at the beginning of the week. We did leave two days early due to rain and needing to travel back south. We have young children who enjoyed canoeing on Lake Pleasant and also in Baxter State park. When they are older and can bike ride and/or play golf,... More

We supposed to be there for a week but we only stayed 3 days... just because we went to Canada. When we called they said that no A/C was needed but was not true !!!! They should have at least one A/C and give the option to use it or not. They gave us fans that truly didn't work very... More

My wife has a timeshare so while in Maine visiting her grandchildren we thought we would stay at the Vacationland 'Estates Resorts' which is on Dow Farm Road. There is a golf course surrounding this place. The landscape is neat, groomed, but the buildings need a lot of work on the outside. Lots of wood rot and in need of... More

This property is well situated on a nice tract of land adjacent to a golf course and about 3 miles east of Island Falls toward Houlton. Our unit was very clean. While the furniture is older, it is in good shape and blends in with the rustic charm of the place. The spacious outdoor deck and nice windows afford gorgeous... More

This place is a RIP OFF; stay away from it. There is NOTHING to SEE or DO in this place. Better off going on nature trails elsewhere. We never saw any wildlife but crows. Island Falls is barren & ugly place.

Loved the peaceful setting in northern Maine. Great star-gazing and sunset-watching (over the mountains) from your balcony, super indoor pool... Everything you need is there... You won't meet nicer people than those living in Island Falls... Took a day trip to Acadia/Bar Harbor... Bike rentals in town for a super bike ride on country roads, through gorgeous potato farms... Mt.... More

This is not a place for urbanites looking for nightlife. We came for a week of kayaking and relaxing. The indoor pool and hot tub were great. The staff are friendly but not in your face. The unit was very clean with a fully equipped kitchen. After making a nice meal we would borrow a movie from the office and... More
