We are glad that you enjoyed everything again this trip. Our little piece of the Saco River can easily fill up an afternoon...

It makes all our hard work worthwhile to know that so many folks absolutely love it here and wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Maureen and I look forward to seeing you again on your next trip to Sky Valley.

We took our first vacation as a family with our 3 year old and stayed at Sky Valley in Cottage 8. The property is very family friendly. The playground area was perfect for our little one to run and play in a safe environment. We enjoyed peaceful walks to the poolside cafe each morning for the free breakfast which was very convenient. In the evenings we enjoyed sitting by our fire pit, swimming in the pool, and especially trips down to the Saco River beach. We found a perfect little spot just along the treeline where a small stream branches off from the river that was perfect for my son to play in. The area is quite rocky so be sure to wear water shoes. We had the spot to ourselves each time and it was so nice! The cottage was a perfect fit for our family. The double bed was a difficult adjustment as we are used to a king but it worked out. The two twin beds in the other room were very comfortable! The yard was nice and private with lots of space for little ones to safely play. Being so close to the woods and the river it gets buggy at night but if you bring your bug spray you'll be just fine. Everything we wanted to see and do was nearby. (Story Land, Conway Scenic Railroad, grocery store, restaurants,,,) We loved our stay so much that on the last night at about 11:00pm while sitting out by the fire we decided we weren't ready to leave. I emailed Dave at that late hour to ask if we could reserve another night and he promptly responded within 30 minutes, welcoming us to reserve the cottage for another evening. We were sad to leave but we are already talking about our next trip to Sky Valley!

Maureen and Dave are glad that everything was as expected and memorable. The cottages are quite popular being set-off by themselves and spaciously situated so you are not looking in your neighbors windows and the individual fire-pits have been a great addition this year. We also have "The Old Stone Chimney" up near the office that we encourage the folks in the motel units to use if they desire.

The pool water got up to 82 degrees while you were here...which is about the warmest it ever gets. It is not heated but the sun usually keeps it in the upper 70's most of the time. (With a capacity of 165,000 gallons of water we fear our rates would need to double to heat all that water).

We are very pleased to welcome you to "our family" of loyalists and you join the list of folks who have been coming here time and time again. We think there is nothing else quite like Sky Valley.

My 11 year old daughter and I came back for our third trip to Sky Valley last weekend. We absolutely love everything about it. It is a beautiful spacious property, simple and clean, and the owners make you feel right at home. The pool is great, and was definitely the highlight of the stay for my daughter. It was very hot outside and the pool was wonderfully refreshing, not to mention fun with all of the fun pool toys! I personally love that Sky Valley is right along the Saco River. I enjoy walking along, cooling off in and taking photos of the river and woods. It is quiet and peaceful and we enjoy being surrounded by nature. The continental breakfast is good, as is the coffee! To us it is a place to stay that is more than just a place to sleep. We always spend time at Sky Valley, whether it be swimming, exploring along the river, or eating lunch in the comfy chairs outside the room. The huge lawn and playground is great too! It is the only place to stay for us!! We can't wait to go back!

Thank you and we are glad your visit was fabulous as usual !

The coffee is Maxwell House, but the real secret is our water, which comes sparkling fresh from our own well. We think it's even better than bottled water...

We look forward to your next trip to Sky Valley and thanks for sharing your experience.

We just had a great stay at Sky Valley Motel & Cottages. The owners were very helpful whenever we had questions. We have stayed a lot of different places in this area in the last few years, but next time we go we will be going back to Sky Valley. Our room was very comfortable and my daughter loved the pool.

We stayed in the poolside Apartment which was quite spacious and was very clean. It could use some cosmetic upgrading and the bathroom could use some updating too. Other than that we really enjoyed our stay. They have a HUGE pool which is great if you have kids.

The Poolside Apartment was on our list of projects way back in May/June. We wanted to replace the rug, do some cosmetic work and replace the tub faucets.

Well, we got as far as replacing the tub faucets. As to the other items...well, honestly, we just ran out of time. We hope to get back in there in September.

We are glad you liked it anyway and we thank you for taking the time to express your thoughts.

Sky valley motel was very clean and tidy. It was in a great location from resturants, activites and shopping centers. The pool was big and clean.Our 10 year old son loved the play ground and we loved the fact it was so far from the main road. Bob and Maureen where very nice and ready to help there guest at anytime. We loved it so much we are planning our next trip there for next summer.

we had a good time there! the pool was great, breakfast was great, and the friendliness was great! the only annoyances (I wouldn't call them problems) were that the pool needed to be skimmed, the grass around the playground needed to be mowed, and the room was a bit old. i'd go back there though!

Thank you for taking the time to share your opinion. We do appreciate it.

Our mower had mechanical issues last week and things went a bit longer than usual, but it's back "on-line" now and we are cutting up a storm.

We're glad to hear that everything else was OK and we look forward to your return trip.
