Booked this place for a week in May through our timeshare. Was a very peaceful and quiet area. The unit had a lot of sleeping space.. 2 rooms plus a loft. Given the amount of room to sleep, I think it needs more seating space in the "family" area. There was a one recliner, one rocking chair and one regular... More

I stayed here for a week. The unit was very nice with 2 full bathrooms, 2 bedrooms, and an additional bed in the loft area. It was knotty pine interior, and equipped with all of the comforts of home, including a dishwasher, refrigerator, dining table set, and all of the necessary cooking utensils. There was a TV in the master... More

Stayed here with my husband and kids thanks to an "extra" getaway our timeshare fave us. The lodging was adequate but the walls are thin and we could hear the neighbors in the next unit coughing and their tv at times. We didn't sleep well either night as the bed was very soft and springy. The view of Mt. Kathadin... More

We were looking for a place to stay while exploring Baxter State Park. We alternated staying in camp in the park with the luxury of a hot shower and electricity at Vacationland. Luxury is relative and this fit the bill. We did not use any of the amenities other than the self service laundry. Units were clean and rustic.

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
