2 tee bars and a rope tow....that was Sunday River in the late 50's. I recall sitting in the Barker lodge listening to an "old timer" lamenting...."I've been skiing here for 20 years now and I'm getting sick and tired of....blah, blah blah". I turned to him and said "I've been skiing here for 50 years and I think this... More

The lodge is clean and quiet. Our room was a good size with everything we needed. Beds are comfy and soft.

Stayed here for a week and would go back again. Beautiful views and very relaxing. Front desk staff leaves alot to be desired but the rest of the staff was great.

Overall, a great experience. Staying in a smaller hotel room with a Murphy bed, but space is quite adequate for two. Grounds are well kept and the staff are all very friendly. Room was cleaned every day and the girls were very nice. Great pool and greater views of the area. Only drawback was the $25.00 a day for room... More

They have zip-lining, rock climbing (better fit for young kids) and gondola rides to the top of the mountain during the summer. Also lots of mountain bikers coming down the slopes. Lots of fun for the family.

Have done ski and stay a number of times at Sunday river and the skiing is great. However the food options are poor in my opinion and if you do not want to ski the options limited.

The food was way over priced and while it was well prepared the pricing should have reflected a sit down table service. I will not eat there again because of that. I spent more on food than other things including my concert tickets. I will not recommend it. I will return with my food and eat before I leave or... More
