We went there two times. The first time was great, good room, spacious. Close to beach. No problems. The person in charge is NEVER there. Sometimes there is a person in the office. The breakfast and coffee is cute. The bikes SUCK! They are awful and a lawsuit waiting to happen. We stayed 3 nights last time. We arrived and... More

We are so sorry for your experience this past September. I really wished you had told us that you could NOT sleep in your assigned room the first night. That would have made a difference in your charges. IF at all possible, we would love to make this up to you, please? My comments re bed were not meant to... More

We booked this visit on line. We arrived after 10pm so we weren't sure what we would find in the morning. The kids woke up and peeked out the window and screamed with delight. A playground right outside the window. Clean and neat grounds with pleasant staff and very accommodating. We stayed in room 10 which had 2 beds in... More

I guess by calling it a resort, they can justify the price. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable of the area, but the room wasn't worth the price I was charged. Both the double beds were comfortable, but between them was dresser that was a good 4-6 inches taller than the bed and my husband hit his head on it... More

Was there for a long weekend and it was a overall good experience. The staff were nice and accommodating, and the rooms were very clean. They allowed us to use the facilities (except the room) even after we checked out, and there were bikes and other sports equipment available for use. Unfortunately the internet connection was not working at all... More

This will be our 14 th year vacationing at Shorelands with our group of six families. Shorelands is very laid-back and comfortable and Sonia is always very accommodating. The rooms are very clean, the pool is refreshing and the beach is beautiful. Can't wait to make more memories!

This place was like staying in a camper. Our neighbor for two days said it was false advertising. They said two room if you count a old closet converted to a bathroom, a room. Tiny tables, funny kind of...not worth $100 per night for sure. The show a picture od a one door cabin and your cabin gets two doors.... More

We spent two days and nights at Shorelands Beach Cottages this summer with our grandchildren, ages ten and six. We all loved the pool, the gardens, the playground, and the congeniality of the multi-cultural staff and guests. The cottage was all we needed to make us feel as though we were back in time in Maine. Simplicity, charm and snug... More

My extended family has been coming every year for 20 years and Sonja has always treated us well. It’s all about location. It’s a short walk down a quiet road to one of the best and least crowded beaches in Maine - Parsons beach. Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge is not far down route 9. The kids love the pool...

There is a review here by Elsa O. that is on the mark. It is not fair to label this resort in a negative light, I used Hotels.com and these people I am unhappy with. If a person uses an agency and something is wrong with a motel, we should be allowed to voice our concerned receive some compensation. I... More
