Not at all what we were told when we booked.

  • 1 of 5
After careful consideration on a number of OOB cottages we decided on this one because of the activities for the kids and our understanding that these cottages were somewhat secluded and had a "yard". These were things that I was told when I called the office to book. Upon arrival we were met with an extremely long line to enter the campground. There was no one around from the campground directing traffic. It was a complete free for all to put it mildly.
Once we got our key and found our cabin, we found that we were RIGHT next to the pool where there were tons of screaming kids. Now I have 4 children under 6 so I'm used to screaming children however this site was anything but secluded. Additionally there was absolutely NO yard. There was a picnic table and a old tire rim for a "fire pit". I was told that there was a large yard with a BBQ and "fire pit" and plenty of room for kids to run and play. The campground "accommodated" us by giving us another site in the middle of the campground with even less yard and what turned out to be more noise in the evening with a number of loud drunk campers from Canada.

The cabin itself was cute but tiny. The bedrooms could fit a bed and maybe one bag of luggage. There was no storage other than a couple of shelves in the master bedroom and bathroom. The master bed creaked so loud that every time my wife or I rolled over it would wake up the baby who was sleeping in the next room. Additionally we were under the impression that it had a FULL bath which it does Not. It has a shower which is fine for adults and teens but not for an infant and kids under 5. We were also told that it had laundry in the cabin which it did NOT.

Another thing to note is every visitor you have costs $8. Not a big deal if you aren't visiting family, but we came here to visit grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. They even charged my 84 year old grandmother every time she came to visit with us for an hour or so because she was "using the amenities". How embarrassing! By the way, even though they paid to get in, it doesn't include the "amenities" like mini golf. That's an additional $5 per person. Oh and WE also had to pay EVERY time we played.
I understand that this is a campground which is why I asked all the relevant questions when I booked. If they had accurately explained to us how the campground was operated and where the cabins were located, we certainly would have found other accommodations.

Owner's Response: We are so sorry to hear that your stay with us was not a pleasant one. We value all of our customers and only want them to have positive experiences.

The cottage itself does not have a yard, but we are situated on a 75-acre resort with lots of areas for activities. A deck, picnic table and fire ring are provided on the sites so that you may enjoy the outdoors.

While the mini golf and the aerial park do cost extra, we have four pools, four hot tubs, a basketball court, horseshoe pits, a nature trail, three playgrounds, pickleball courts, volleyball courts, catch and release pond, shuffle board, wi-fi, and lots of planned activities that are free of charge.

The cottage is listed as 399 square feet, so it is not a large cottage by any means, but it is unique in that there are three different sleeping areas (the bunk room, the main room with a queen bed and the sleeping loft). Also, the bathroom is listed as having a toilet and shower. The cottage has a half bath, but as reflected on the listing, it does not have a tub. None of our rentals units have washers and dryers, I apologize if there was a miscommunication while making the reservation. Wild Acres does have a brand new laundry facility on property with an adequate number of machines for our busy resort and even has a sitting area with a flat screen TV.

We pride ourselves in being one of the premier resort destinations in Old Orchard Beach. We appreciate your feedback and hope that you will consider us for your next trip to the area.

We absolutely loved Wild Acres resort.

  • 5 of 5
We got off to a rough start arriving around midnight with no one there let us into the resort, the management more than made up for it the following day lending us a golf cart for the week, as well as free firewood and ice. This was a rare mistake as the resort is used to families coming in between midnight and 4am.
The cottages are very clean and perfect for a family with up to 4 kids. (they could accommodate another two on the pullout sofa) The main bedroom has its own ensuite and a door that closes off the bedroom. It also has closet space (with duvets, pillows and an iron) and a tv.
There is a very steep set of stairs leading to the loft with two single beds.(very low ceiling!!) Perfect for kids from 6-16. There are two single mattresses on the floor and it has a balcony overlooking the kitchen/living room.
The kitchen has little counter top space but a full size fridge and gas stove. They provide all the items necessary for your stay. You should bring a dustpan, extra toilet paper, hand and dish soap, and paper towel.
There is a second two piece bathroom off the kitchen.
The bedroom with two single bunks has no floor room and is literally built around the bunkbeds.
There is a screened in porch for dining with four chairs and two extras. (they wouldn't fit around the table). There is a large side porch with a bbq, but does not have the two chairs as pictured. This area is perfect for drying beach towels and bathing suits.
It is only a 5 minute walk to the beach after you drive to the designated beach parking area.
Once you are beached out, there are three big pools, two with hot tubs. There are plenty of lounge chairs around the pool, and there always seemed to be a couple of free ones no matter what time we arrived at the pool.
The resort offers lots of activities for the kids. the roads around the cottages are newly paved and great for bike riding, sidewalk chalk or using a remote control little toy. You can be as involved as you want with all the activities available. The staff are very accommodating and eager to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
The local grocerie store, Hannafords is only a 5 minute drive from the resort, as is Starbucks, Dairy Queen, a Chinese food restaurant ect...
The zipline park wasn't open yet.
The beach entry closest to the resort is perfect and not as busy as the Pier, which is a 10 min walk on the beach.
We will be back next year for sure!

The ocean walk on the property is extremely popular. This walk way allows our guest access to the ocean and provides an alternative to driving there.
