Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Newry - The Artist's Cabin Retreat

Beautiful 'cabin' that sleeps 10 with incredible views of Sunday River Resort

Only a 5 minute drive to Sunday River Resort's South Ridge Lodge, this brand new log sided 'cabin' is located in the very upscale neighborhood of Powder Ridge in Newry, Maine. The entire front of the house is glass and displays three levels of spectacular views of all eight peaks of Sunday River Resort. Completed mid-December 2013, it boasts over 1500 square feet of living space spread out over three floors. This two bedroom, two full bath with a loft vacation rental enjoys a mix of modern facilities combined with antiques and rustic high-end decor. The comforts of home include all brand new amenities such as: WI-FI, two flat screen TV's, Directv cable, DVD player with movies, stereo system with in-ceiling speakers, pillowtop mattresses, two sitting areas facing the mountains (one with a woodstove), a full kitchen complete with dishwasher, refrigerator, oven, microwave, KEURIG Brewing System and two new charming full bathrooms decorated in Rustic Moose and Bear style . It even has a washer and dryer for use by guests.

This is an all year round property to be enjoyed fully in each season. You will find downhill and cross country skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, ice skating and tubing in the winter, all within 2 miles of the property. Golfing at the prestigious Sunday River Golf Club is only 5 miles down the road while the Bethel Inn & Country Club course can be found in downtown Bethel, 7 miles in the other direction. Hiking in this area of Western Maine is a real treat with many trailheads located at spots like Grafton and Evans Notch State Parks.

If you are coming to the area for one of the many unique WEDDINGS held every year, why not make it a family vacation and explore all there is to see and do.

Go swimming at the 'S' or Frenchman's, both on the very rural end of Sunday Road, take a chair lift ride to see the unbelievable fall colors, try your hand at The Tough Mountain Challenge or The National Wife Carrying Championship. Or just sit back by the WOODSTOVE in the lower level family room, kick off your shoes, have a glass of wine, pet your dog and watch the stars and the weekly FIREWORKS display.

There truly is something to be enjoyed by everyone!

Have a SMALLER party? Try our sister property, 'The Artist's Studio at Powder Ridge'. It is perfect for a small family or couple and of course, you can bring the family PET!

About Wendy or Gary Polonski

Gary and Wendy Polonski raised their two daughters on the South Shore near Boston and spent 16 years driving up for weekly ski and hiking vacations at Sunday River Resort. Once the girls were off to college, they sold their home in Hingham, MA and made the permanent move to their present home in Newry, Maine. Gary is a trained painter and sculptor and built their sister property, The Artist's Studio, for him to work and display his art. Along the way, they discovered a passion for sharing their slice of heaven with guests through Homeaway.

Wendy or Gary Polonski purchased this house in 2013

Why Wendy or Gary Polonski chose Sunday River

With the wild success of entertaining guests at The Artist's Studio at Powder Ridge, Gary and Wendy decided to purchase the property just below their main home and build a brand new smaller log-sided house to expand their experience. This property boasts the same amazing views and is being rented with their same philosophy of a higher-end rental for an incredibly reasonable price. All while being able to bring the family

pet(s).

What makes this house unique

The 'Cabin' is decorated with many of the same fine details as The Artist's Studio, especially original paintings by Gary Polonski. Much of the furniture has been created and built by Gary and Wendy, being made from trees taken directly off the property. Each piece is one-of-a-kind and uniquely created for each bedroom, loft, living room and dining area. Partnered with beautiful quilts and materials, and Gary's one-of-a-kind original paintings, you will find the decor a treat to your senses.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My friends and I rented this home for a random weekend getaway, and we

could not have had a better time. A gorgeous home, with that so-rare

combination of a rustic look and a modern feel, located away from the

crowds and yet a short drive from some excellent food and trails, and a

pair of hosts who were communicative and welcoming without being at all

intrusive. The house was stocked with everything we could need -- enough

cleaning supplies to please a neat-freak like me, enough firewood for a

year-long fire, and even unexpected basics such as as toiletries in the

bathrooms. Ample space, clear instructions, and everything we could have

asked for. When we're up here again, we'll look to rent this property again

for sure.

Warm, relaxing, surprisingly spacious retreat reflecting Nature's beauty.

  • 5 of 5

Wendy & Gary make you feel like a truely welcomed guest, from the ease of check-in, freshly baked coffee cakes & personal card to the clear inflormation of how to function everything on the property.

The cabin has fantastic views from all levels, plenty of sleeping room, a wonderfully equiped kitchen. There are even provisions should a winter storm interupt electricity temporarily.

Our daughter's wedding brought us to the area. Family found the Artist's Cabin a relaxing retreat from the hub-bub of the event. Sipping a hot mug of tea as we enjoyed the mountain views, or warming ourselves by the woodstove melted away any cares. We are already dreaming how to return for another 4 day visit to enjoy more hiking in the area.

Great Experience in a Pristine Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Wendy & Gary's cabin is a true gem; with breathtaking views of Sunday River year round. My fiancé and I were lucky enough to visit in late fall and caught some of the foliage. If you are looking for a gorgeous, rustic retreat - look no further. Highly recommend!

Incredible views and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed this wonderful home during peak foliage in Newry Maine. The views of Sunday river mountain range off the back deck are fantastic. The inside of the home is perfect for a family to enjoy and relax. Wendy and Gary were terrific hosts and we look forward to renting the home again in the near future.

Comfortable, relaxing, beautifully maintained cabin in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My family (husband, two kids, and dog) spent two nights during peak foliage season. Everything about the cabin was just right. Comfortable and cozy but plenty of space to spread out as well. Beautiful views of Sunday River, quiet surroundings, and this wonderful cabin provided for the perfect 'get away from it all' weekend. Though we didn't meet face-to-face, the Polonski's were welcoming (a delicious coffee cake awaited us in the kitchen upon our arrival, for example) and responsive. Though we had absolutely no problems nor concerns of any kind, I never doubted that they would be available to assist us. I absolutely would recommend this cabin for a Sunday River visit any time of year.

Lovely home with great views

  • 5 of 5

Blueberry cake upon entry! Say no more! Easy access to Grafton Notch state park and Bethel. Great views and a beautifully designed home. Wish we could have stayed longer. Make sure you sleep in the loft at least one night so you can wake up to the mountains!
