We stayed at this resort in June 2012. There were 10 of us total (mostly kids). We had the two bedroom condo on the top floor, end unit next to the playground. The condo was nice enough for us and clean though nothing spectacular. It was nice to be on an end unit and have some privacy on our deck with no one walking past and we enjoyed sitting out there. We could see right down to the playground where the kids would go play, which was really convenient. The weather was beautiful when we visited, so we LOVED the outdoor pool!! It's a good size and kept up well. Looks appealing with the white fence and lights around it. The grounds were also kept very nicely. The staff was helpful and kind.
The part of this resort that could use improvement is the indoor pool room. The pool is quite large, but the whole room is dated and kind of dark and depressing. Since the weather was so beautiful we used the outdoor pool for the most part, but I would not stay here in the winter because I didn't care for the indoor pool. Besides that, I enjoy a whirlpool with an indoor pool and there was none, though there was a sauna.
I would stay here again for a summer trip. Even though it was nice to be near the playground, we were the furthest from the pool, so next time I would probably try to get closer to the pool, since my kids are like fish and spend most of their time in the water.
If you like donuts, do not miss Congdon's Donuts just up the road. It is a very popular place. I love the donuts. Dunkins can't compare.
