About Aqeel and Michelle Salim

We first fell in love with the Sunday River area of Maine in 2011 during a family ski trip. When we had a chance to come back the following year in late summer for some hiking and were amazed at how much Maine had to offer. This year we decided that Western Maine would be a wonderful place to bring our young son so that he would have a chance to experience the amazing array of outdoor activities that the area we had to offer. We hope you will enjoy our cabin as much as we do!

Aqeel and Michelle Salim purchased this chalet in 2015

Why Aqeel and Michelle Salim chose Western Maine

This Chalet offered the best of both worlds. Being less than 20 minutes away from Sunday River ensured that world class skiing was always close by. And by being so close to the water we would have a chance to kayak and fish as much as we wanted. We feel extremely lucky to have found this home.

What makes this chalet unique

Being so close to North Pond, our guests can walk out of the home and be on the water in mere minutes. There are also amazing hiking trails waiting to be explored. During winter months, a short car ride and you are at the base of the best ski resort on the east coast, Sunday River. After a day filled with fun, the fire pit and hot tub outside welcome you to sit, relax, and plan the next days adventures.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the openness of the living room! Tons of space for us to be comfortable all together. But enough space to have your own privacy if needed. Beds were wicked comfy and we never ran out of activities to do. Thank you so very much for your generous hospitality. Your home made us feel like we were at home and very comfortable. It is even more beautiful than the pictures online. Thank you again!

The Salim's house is lovely to stay. It is a welcoming home with a nice layout and plenty of rooms.

  • 5 of 5

The Salim's were wonderful to work with. Before making our reservation, Aqeel called to talk about the house and to review our dates. They then called us a few days before our arrival to be sure we were all set before arriving at the house. They were pleasant to work with, and checked in on us during our stay. They were easily reachable by phone or text if needed. Their Caretaker too is helpful and nice to work with. I highly recommend this house for your visit. There is plenty of space, well equipped kitchen, great game room for the kids...even teenagers, and the hot tub was a plus after a cold day on the slopes.

Our group of 8 friends thoroughly enjoyed our stay. a beautiful and thoughtfully equipped house.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 friends have been taking a ski vacation together annually for over 30 years and this house was easily one of the most beautiful and well equipped houses that we've ever rented. The owners Aqueel and Michelle were very attentive without being intrusive. They obviously take a great deal of pride in this property and haven't missed any detail in ensuring that their guests have a wonderful experience. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in staying there again.

We had an amazing time at the Ski/Lake Chalet. Aqeel and Michelle have a fabulous home that is everything advertised! All of the ameities are top notch and I couldnt think of anything that we would have wanted or needed that would have made our vacation any better. Thanks for having such a great place available for rent close to Sunday River!

Owner's Response: We are so happy your group had a great time. It has been a wonderful ski season thus far and it's only going to get better. Having soft, warm beds and a comfy place to kick up your feet after a day on the slopes is exactly what we strive to provide for all our guests. Looking forward to having you all back out soon!

Fabulous Vacation Home with perfect location for skiing!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better vacation home for our family of 5. The home is in immaculate condition with well stocked kitchens (two full kitchens), comfortable family gathering spaces-game room with tv and large family room- and extremely comfortable beds and pillows. The hot tub is large and well maintained.

We enjoyed the close proximity to Sunday River Ski Resort and the quaint town of Bethel, Maine.

We loved the fun variety of dining and local establishments. Some of our favorites were The Local Hub, The Milllhill Inn, The Suds Pub, The Good Food Store, and The Matterhorn Ski Bar.

Aqueel and Michelle are wonderful hosts and very accessible to ask for suggestions and help.

We give this Vacation Home the highest of recommendations!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your glowing review, Sue! We are so glad you and your family enjoyed the chalet, and the snow looked incredible!!! Great recommendations for food--we like to try out a new place each time we are there and haven't tried all of those, so we have some exploring to do when we are up there. We are glad you all enjoyed the beds and pillows, as we have made comfort a priority in our chalet with memory foam mattress toppers on all beds! We are looking forward to having you all back soon! Aqeel and Michelle

Fun had by all!

  • 5 of 5

My brother's family and my family stayed at this wonderful chalet in the woods over Christmas. It was a perfect holiday getaway complete with beautiful Christmas tree and decorations. There was plenty of room for the 2 families, and we made use of the game room, hot tub and firepit for entertainment, and appreciated the fully stocked kitchen and ample storage space for all of our ski gear. One day we trekked through the snow to explore the beauty of the pond. Sunday River was only 15-20 minutes away. We all were wishing that we had more time there, because there is no shortage of things to do either at the house or in the area. thanks so much for letting us stay at your wonderful place and for checking in both before and after our stay to make sure everything went smoothly. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for comfort, fun and convenience! We will definitely be back!!!

Owner's Response: It was our pleasure to host you and your family for Christmas, Heidi! It sounds like you all had the right idea about checking out the beauty in the area. It truly is the perfect place to explore, ski/snowboard, and relax! We love that you all took advantage of family time with the indoor activities, too--playing games, Wii, watching movies, and enjoying the hot tub are excellent ways to make memories. We are looking forward to having you all back soon! Aqeel and Michelle
