Overview

About the property

Beautiful 'cabin' that sleeps 11 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

Wendy & Gary,

What a great get away spot you have created at the cabin. Warm, charming and so convenient to the mountain. You have every detail taken care of from the coffee cake (what a nice gesture - the kids loved it!) to keeping us on track even during the storm outage. Thanks for everything! It could not have been better - we had a blast!

Close to everything but removed enough for great views!

  • 5 of 5

A great retreat that was perfect for a birthday celebration and Easter getaway. The views from the home are really something. The south west facing deck made a perfect spot for apres ski relaxation and soaking up sunshine!

The cabin is clean, bright and warm with lots of glass and wood and very comfortable furniture. Our very attentive and available hosts thought of everything!

Amazing cabin and views to match!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a pet-friendly rental near Sunday River for an impromptu spring ski trip. We could not have been more pleased with our time at the Artist's Cabin! Wendy and Gary were incredibly responsive and we had our stay booked quickly and easy. They sent all of the important information we needed (directions, detailed description of the amenities) immediately which made everything so easy. On arrival, we were greeted with fresh-baked cookies and a gorgeous cabin. Every detail was considered when appointing this cabin. The kitchen was well-stocked, the beds and bedding were high quality, there was even shampoo and everything ready in the showers. We were constantly marveling at how beautiful everything was (and the owners art is no exception). The location is wonderful and was very convenient to Sunday River and nearby restaurants. We were so happy that we asked to extend our stay by one more day! Again, our hosts were again responsive and happy to help. Even when we had questions about the lights, they were quick to help.

Our dog loved watching the woods from the sliders and we were grateful to find such a nice place that allowed her to join us.

Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer! We plan to come for a longer stay next year.

Beautiful, cozy cabin in the perfect location.

  • 4 of 5

We had a fabulous time and felt right at home. The hosts left a lovely welcome note plus homemade goodies which was a beautiful touch. Beds were really comfortable and just a stone's throw away from the slopes. Great time had by all.

our ski trip

  • 5 of 5

Our two families enjoyed a four day ski vacation at Sunday River. We were very pleased with our choice to stay at the Artist's Cabin and definitely recommend it. It took only a few minutes to get to the Sunday River ski area. The cabin was very well maintained and clean. The three levels to the cabin provided plenty of space for our group to spread out in. We were very appreciative of the supply of staples like paper products, detergents and toiletry items, and food items that the Polonski's provided. It was so pleasant to be able to sit out on the deck and enjoy the late afternoon sun and the beautiful view of the Sunday River ski mountains. We also enjoyed the outdoor fire pit on a beautiful evening where the moon had a white circle around it, I'm told this is called a corona or witches moon. They also had coffee cake for us on our day of arrival, very thoughtful!

Beautiful, clean with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

We had no issues whatsoever with the handling of the reservation, contact with the owners and followup. The Artist's Cabin is a beautiful place, well maintained and well stocked with high quality amenities. The view across the valley to the Sunday River ski area is beautiful. The three level layout allowed for group activities that also allowed for personal space.

As a winter wonderland, you can enjoy downhill and cross country skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, tubing, ice skating, snowmobiling, ziplining and even dog sled rides in the same general location.

Take a break from the outdoors with shopping and dining in charming downtown Bethel or visit North Conway only an hour away. During the Fall season, 'leaf peepers' can ride the chair lift up to the top of Sunday River Resort and bask in nature's amazing beauty.

In additon to the July 4th Artisan Fair, July Mollyockett Days and the Fall Harvest Fair in September, you can experience the one-of-a-kind annual National Wife Carrying Championship on Columbus Day Weekend.

Spring, Summer and Fall add Golfing at Sunday River Golf Club and the Bethel Inn & Country Club, hiking, road biking, camping, backpacking, swimming, wildlife observation, motorcycling, mountain biking and WEDDINGS! The rustic beauty of this area has something that appeals to all!
