Wonderful weekend with friends at an awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

The Forest Drive Lodge was a great place to spend the weekend with friends, we were a group of 12 and had more than enough room to spread out. The place was clean and comfortable and went beyond our expectations with the game room, pool table and hot tub. Everyone had a great time and the proximity to Sunday River was perfect. Would come back here to stay any time!

Perfect house for a family break

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay for a winter ski weekend with our extended family. The house was perfect for us with a comfortable bed for everyone--grandparents, parents, three teenagers and five children. The decor was charming and homey. We will be back for sure!!

Even better than we expected

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a birthday weekend with two other couples. We had a wonderful time. The house was clean, everything was in working order, and it was much bigger than it looks. Lynn was very easy to work with, and she went above and beyond to make sure they took great care of us. We'll certainly be returning to this home on future Sunday River trips.

Great Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 stayed here with mom-in-law for the winter holiday. We have 4 kids - 12,11,3, and 6mo. Everyone had a great time. The home is very spacious (much bigger than it looks in the photos) and we were all able to spread out and have some space. There was a pack and play for the baby and a bumper wall for the toddler's bed. This solved 2 big concerns for my wife.

We are from Florida so the Maine attraction was snow (sorry, I couldn't help it). We got plenty of it so the large backyard and woods behind became a huge playground. The property is really spectacular covered in snow.

The home is only 1 mile from town which is really convenient for activities and shopping. The local supermarket is small by US standards but completely sufficient for a vacation. Despite being so close to town, it feels way out in the woods. There is a snowmobile track about a quarter mile behind the house in the woods and you can follow that much further than you can walk in a day.

The owners and managers are very attentive and respond quickly to any questions. The driveway was plowed before my family could get moving. We have always had very good experiences with VBRO but this rental was one of the best. We rarely return to an area for another vacation, but we may make an exception.

In case you are a Floridian at heart, the house is not drafty, the heat works very well (4 zones), there is plenty of hot water (and good pressure) and it is possible to enjoy an outdoor hot tub when it is 20F and snowing. Interesting tidbit learned about Maine - they expect that you own ice skates - seems nowhere rents them so bring them if you have them. They don't charge to ice skate.

Private, well equipped and roomy lodge

  • 3 of 5

We were able to travel to the mountains, woods, parks, and sea and return to the lodge to fix a meal for many in a well equipped kitchen, and then watch TV upstairs, play games on the TV downstairs, shoot pool, play shuffleboard, play poker, soak in a hot tub, or sit around the fire pit and talk about the day gone by. It was a fun filled, gorgeous week!
