We had never been to Sugarloaf and so were quite pleased that our condo choice turned out so well. It was spotless and in good condition and very well situated to either take the shuttle or the commuter chair to the base of the mountain. Ruth, the owner, was friendly and helpful and great about making herself available to answer questions. It was well equipped with everything we could need. Fireplace was a nice bonus. It was perfect for our family.
We just returned home from a fabulous ski weekend at Sugarloaf, ME. We knew the skiing would be great due to recent snow storms. Limited availability at the hotel left us looking for a last minute condo rental. Coordinating a rental is a job in itself, and lack of time only increases the stress level! The owners of this condo were so accommodating. Ruth walked through the process with me on line, explained all the ins & outs of the condo itself, gave me plenty of contact numbers in case we ran into any problems or had any questions. We left for our weekend up north with a very good feeling. Upon arrival everything was just as Ruth said it would be! There were no surprises, the listing was 100% accurate, thoroughly cleaned & well maintained. Lots of condos say they are ski in/out...this condo is ski in/out! We walked up to the Sugarloaf Inn for dinner with the kids which was so much fun. Enjoyed a relaxing sit in the outside hot tub, which is a very, very short walk from the condo. The wood burning fireplace was a nice way to end to the day....if you're looking for a Sugarloaf condo rental for your family, you won't go wrong with this one!
Myself and my two teenagers, with a friend each enjoyed 4 nights in this perfect, slope-side condo at Sugarloaf. I had other guests come and go, using the pull-out couch (this was reportedly uncomfortable--suggest bringing a blow-up mattress if extras are coming). There was more than enough space for 7-8 comfortably! We prepared and ate all of our meals there. Skiing back for lunch, right to the back door, was the best! The window seat was a favorite spot to relax, and the near-by hot tubs in the development were used daily by all apres-ski.
The property was exactly as described and well-maintained. The owner was very pleasant to work with.
We wouldn't hesitate to rent this property again!
