Reasonably priced option for ski-in, ski-out accommodation at Sunday River. We stayed in a 2 bedroom which had a great view of the mountain and was nicely decorated. (Our friends though had a room at the back of the building with no view and more basic decor, so realize when booking that they are individually owner owned units and so there could be a big variation in the quality and standard of the furnishings). There is an outdoor heated pool and a jacuzzi which was a short walk across the parking lot from our building although it was more conveniently located for those coming from the other building.
Access to the ski trails is also in front of the building across the parking lot. If you are traveling with small children or beginner skiers, be aware that the trail goes down to a ski-lift which takes you up the mountain and in order to arrive at the main base area where the ski school is located you have to take a trail that crosses some blue and black runs and might be a bit challenging for skiers lacking in confidence. (If this is the case with your party, look at the North Peak Condominiums instead which has similar accommodation but is much nearer to the Main base lodge and an short easy green from the ski school)
From Brookside condominiums, you can walk to a smaller base lodge in a couple of minutes, where there are 2 restaurants, a ski shop and access to the tubing park (Note however that the opening hours/days of the restaurants at this base lodge were somewhat erratic, even during our peak ski season week, and they weren't open for lunch at all mid-week)
A couple of minor issues with the Brookside condos - the lack of a ski rack over near the trail so that you could leave your skis while running back to the condo. In the building we were in, the ski lockers are not located on the 1st floor but up a flight of stairs, which is a pain in ski boots. It's a 4 storey building with no public elevator - be prepared for quite a work out when moving in and out!
