We stayed over New Years for several nights with extended family taking up 4-5 rooms including a suite that we could hangout in and catchup. The kids and I loved going to the pool. They keep asking when we can go back! The staff are super friendly and helpful. Great location not far from Acadia National Park.

We stayed for a few days with family over the new year and enjoyed the pool, fitness center and relaxing lobby area. Staff were very accommodating, as our kids left their hotel keys behind in our room and needed new ones coded. The Thai restaurant next door easily accommodated our party of 14 with tasty, ample and freshly prepared dishes....
