The resort is clean and the people that work there are friendly.

It is somewhat dated , but looks to be a great place for young families.

We were traveling for a golf vacation, and there was not a tremendous amount of activity.

The views from the rooms are quite spectacular.

Stayed: September 2018

If you stay here and speak with the guests, you would know that by their standards, we're "newbies" - we've come here every September for the past 6 years -- many loyal guests and their families have been coming here for two generations - as children and then as adults & parents & even golfers!
A true "family" summer resort, we come for the friendly atmosphere & wonderful staff, the IMMACULATE rooms ... and GOLF!
Two courses are available thru their stay & play specials - The on-premises Sunny Hill Golf Course - 4300 yard/par66 - with stunning mountain/valley vistas from the back 9, and the more challenging Thunderhart Course, just 3 miles away, a 6400 yard/par 72 more challenging course, also with beautiful vistas.
There are many types of units available - we LOVE the Austland units - roomy, next to the dining hall and overlooking the golf course - great views from the veranda of the grounds, the setting sun and starry nights!
Meals are family style with a daily menu along with an "available always" menu. Meals are like home-cooked dinners. Not fancy, but tasty and more than sufficient.
No matter the unit, you can be absolutely sure it will be spotless. Check the brochure for unit izes. The Grimstad units are the smallest I think. We have stayed in the Grimstad (small) , Parkchester, (roomy) & our favorite - the Austland roomy w/large veranda.
If you want to see what an "all-American true FAMILY-RUN" vacation resort is like, come to Sunny Hill & "step back in time" to the Good Ole Days with a modern spin!!

My husband and I took a couple of days without the kids to stay and play golf, relax, unplug and unwind. We got exactly what we wanted. Excellent friendly staff and service, activities very well-organized, golf and amenities were fantastic. Next time we bring the whole family!

Start a family tradition at Sunny Hill! My parents started our tradition as a family of 6 in 1977… Then we all brought friends up in the 1980’s. Then in the 1990’s, we brought spouses up. By the late 1990’s we had our own children with us… Although we don’t get to come up every year anymore for a week… We do try to do a long weekend with our grown Son’s. The time spent at Sunny Hill Resort is the most beautiful family time. Whether they golf or just chill out with a Yankee game on the Laptop... My Son’s love this place. Friday night Fire Works are outstanding. You will find that no matter what your age, you will want to get on a few of the “just for Fun rides” The “Monster Truck” will make you feel like you are 10 years old again! Sunday night “Live Music” in front of the Viking lodge can be heard on the lake at sunset! The staff is Amazing! This is a resort that will keep you moving if you partake in every event! Yet if you skip the fun because you are in AWW of the Mountain Views, You can’t help but Love Sunny Hill Resort!
BTW, the WI-Fi and the Food gets better every year! They keep the property in pristine condition!

Room Tip: A family of 4 or more, request the bigger rooms! With our 2 adult sons, we take 2 small rooms. We want the extra bath and the privacy!

I have been coming for 60 plus years. It is the best. My kids are grown. They are coming still. My granddaughter is 3 loves it. I laugh, have gone from 1 room & 1 car to 3 cars & 3 rooms. My son even brought his girlfriend this year. Would never miss our June week. The Nicholsons are the bed!!
