I'm embarrassed to admit that I have slept in every unit at SV! Granted I've been coming since 1980 but there is a reason for that. The property is well maintained and has been adequately updated over the years. This visit was a short three days this year in Apt A. Everything was neat and clean when we arrived and... More

My wife, mother-in-law, myself and our 3 and 5 year old daughters found Sky Valley because it was the only place we could find that would accommodate 5 people in a room. That random find turned out to be the best choice we could have made. The first thing I found was that the pool is incredible. It's not a... More

This place is a nifty intersection of quaint, quirky, convenient, and affordable that is very easy to like. We rented "Apartment A" for four nights. There were a couple forgivable deficiencies but none that marred our visit...we were not expecting the Ritz Our kids, aged 3 and 6, loved it and were mad when we finally had to head home.... More

We appreciate your taking time to share your experience. The pool does have a shallow roped off section for non swimmers. Those with marginal skills should come prepared with the proper attire for their ability level. We have an assortments of tubes and balls for all to enjoy, but they may not be suitable for non swimmers. Thanks for letting... More

The owner Maureen that we dealt with numerous times did not make us feel welcomed, it was uncomfortable to be there to the point where we would have left a night early. She made us feel like she was annoyed with us for no reason. The sheets were very low quality and made it uncomfortable to sleep. The other owner... More

We are both trying to recall anyone who has been here in the past couple of weeks that we would have made feel "uncomfortable" or "unwelcome". I can't match your name up with anyone that has been here recently nor do I re-call any "situations" out of the ordinary that would match you up with a face or name in... More

Clean comfortable room, beautiful grounds, nice people, great pool. We were in room 16. Whenever we head that way again we will most likely stay there. We stayed there last year also. Our son and his family stayed in chalet 3 and were very Happy with it .There was plenty of room for them and lots of amenities.

We stayed in cottage #8 and we loved it, it was very clean and adorable. We liked how quiet it was. The kids loved the pool and Saco river, and the staff is very friendly. Will be definitely coming back next year for our next vacation.

Thank you for taking time to share your thoughts. Sky Valley remains a very unique property with our 35 acres directly on Saco River and a flavor of "days gone by" while keeping our units up to date and remaining a family style place offering a memorable experience. Our consistent positive reviews are encouraging and tell us we must be... More

So we just got home from our stay in the saco suite. Last year we rented number 13 and it was pretty darn awesome but this year we wanted more room. Have got to say we made the right choice. It was awesome. We are already planning a fall trip and next years summer trip! Can't wait to go back!... More

Thanks for taking a moment to share your thoughts. Saco Suite is a great choice for families who want more space than a motel room but don't want a Cottage unit. It has a nice covered porch on front and an easy jaunt to the Childrens playground. We are glad you enjoyed it and look forward to seeing you again... More

Although this motel is on the older side everything was clean, quiet and the pool was wonderful. My Grandson loved the play ground area and it was great for running off energy, we even played shuffle board..We plan on returning this year.Hope to find entrance to beach this time

Thank you for taking time to share your experience. The motel units were built in 1952 but we make great efforts to keep things modernized at least to the current decade and cleanliness is a must. One of our best attributes is our 35 acres of open space and the river-frontage. Being just 5 miles to Storyland theme park is... More

For the second year in a row I did an "all by myself" four-day stay at Sky Valley, in Chalet 3. As always during my past visits, I thoroughly enjoyed myself!

There is something to be said for solo trips...a chance for inner reflection and no one else to please but oneself. We are glad everything was up to expectations...the only thing that didn't happen was your little snow-shoe excursion. Looking forward to seeing you again this summer sometime. Dave & Maureen More
