Restaurant Feature – Scenic Summer Eats!

One of the Owner Services Team’s favorite spot to grab a bite to eat during the summer is the Club House at the Sunday River Golf Club.

Our favorite time of day to visit: Morning, noon or night! The Club House is open for breakfast, lunch, happy hour and dinner. We enjoy grabbing a breakfast sandwich on the way to work, lunch and a bag of balls on the range or catching the sunset and Happy Place Hour.

Our favorite menu item: Fried Chicken Sandwich – it’s so big we have to take one of the pieces of chicken off to eat it!

Our favorite thing about the Club House: The views! Sitting on the deck an enjoying the views of the Mahoosuc Mountains is an experience not to be missed!

Wi-Fi Upgrade Complete!

Earlier this month we finished a complete upgrade of the Jordan Hotel Wi-Fi system.

The old outdated and undersized Wi-Fi system at the hotel was replaced with the new Boyne standard Meraki Wi-Fi. This new system will offer expanded coverage, bandwidth and resiliency to all guest rooms and common areas at the Jordan Hotel.

On the first Saturday the new system was in place, we had 643% more bandwidth usage than the previous 10 Saturdays.

The new network is called ‘Sunday River’ and you must accept the terms in a browser at your first login. The Sunday River network is accessible throughout Sunday River so you will be able to seamlessly connect to Wi-Fi as you travel throughout the resort.

Salute Summer with the Maine Brew Fest

The Maine Brew Fest returns to Sunday River on Saturday, September 18. What’s on tap? Craft beer and cider samplings from over 20 Maine breweries. Tickets are on sale now. Buy online in advance and save! Help us close out summer with live music and as many as 100 tasty samplings.
