“Family Weekend”

Reviewed 8 Mar 2015

Beautiful condo with lots of room for our six adult children and grandbaby. Clean, cozy and well equipped. Beds comfy! Gorgeous, unobstructed views and easy trail access in and out. Ample parking. Our third stay at Saddleback and this is our fav. Owner provided lots of info and kept in touch. We'll do this rental again!

“Sweet Maine retreat”

Reviewed 26 Feb 2015

This condo exceeded our expectations. It was in great condition, as presented, large, and warm. Park and ski for the weekend or week. Saddleback is a hidden gem. We never waited in a long lift line during NH school vacation week. The mountain has one of the best base lodges in the east and offers terrain for everyone. The grooming was superb. If your lucky and hit a powder day the steeps and glades are ready. The owner is easy to work with. We plan to go back.
