“Nice place”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

My family and I rented two condos side by side. One condo was more modern and nicer than the other. We were also told that we would have one king bed and one queen bed. One condo had them; the other didn't. There was one king bed in one room and two single in the other room. Since we were two couples per condo, it was a bit of a problem. Also, the condos are not sound proof. We were hearing the people on top of us like if they were in our condo.

On the positive side, the condos are very spacious. They were clean. The staff were friendly and very helpful.

Room Tip: If you don't want to hear the people walking on top of your head, ask for the third floor. By t...

We have stayed at this wonderful resort everytime we have come to Maine. The condo's are lovely, very clean and comfortable. We enjoy the specials they advertise, and discovered some great restaurants through their dining packages. We especially like that all the units are smoke-free. Each unit has a deck or patio and from 2nd or 3rd floor units you usually have a view of the marsh. Reservations are very easy to make and the reservation staff are very accommodating.

Room Tip: 2nd floor units offer nice views, there is a slight up charge for 3rd floor rooms. We had an end un...

The staff were helpful and friendly! We enjoyed the entire 2 days there. The room block for the wedding was done well with most of us in the same building. The meal at the wedding was good,the salmon was done perfectly. I just wish that the reception could have gone on longer.

Room Tip: The 2 bedroom suites on the upper floors have a great view! The 1 bedroom suites are very roomy too...

I would highly recommend this place for a week get-away. The condos are always clean, the staff is very helpful and there is plenty of room. The rooms with the fireplace are especially nice. We went there this past winter in a snowstorm and the staff helped us clear snow from our car and even gave my husband a ride to the store.

If something isn't working they come right over and fix it. Staff at the reception desk is always pleasant and willing to answer any questions when needed.

The pool is a great place to exercise and bring a book to read.

Room Tip: Get one with a fireplace-

Please dont raise your prices!

Room Tip: Just ask the front desk what size availble and if want a view or rather be on lower level with no s...

Easy to find. King size beds and they are comfortable. Love the option of eat in or out. Great access to many opportunities. Antiques, restaurants, and more. The views are great too. Just as great off season as it is in season. Staff is great and knowledgeable. Looking forward to my next stay already.

Great place to stay - condos are great size, clean, fully equipped with everything one could want - king size bed was great - handicapped facilities were perfect - convenient location - great view of the ocean and the marsh - have stayed in the are many times, but this was the first here - from now on, this will always be our first choice, and we are already planning a longer stay for next year

Room Tip: Top floors provide the best view of the ocean and marsh
