Construction Completion Details: Interior Finish Details: Each bedroom has custom made/designed bedding and window treatments. All of the furniture was purchased either from specialty retailers and craftsmen or in High Point, North Carolina -- the furniture capital of the USA. The house features a number of custom built-ins -- two window seats, sleeping platforms, entertainment units, cabinets, mud-room seating, ski-pegs, hat/mitten/boot shelving, bay window seat, etc. The design work in the flooring in every room is outstanding and unlike anything you have every seen before. The magnificent arched timber trusses and the one of a kind 40 foot masonry fireplace are truly unique. The central staircase is mahogany with black iron balusters. There are 7 custom showers (slate, travertine, marble, granite, glass, onyx, pebbles) including a slate mosaic and copper pencil dog shower!. The kitchen will not only please your family chef but may very well earn a feature magazine spread. No expense has been spared in making this the ultimate retreat!

Our Commitment to our Guests: We have been helping extended family groups make memories and solidify bonds that will last a lifetime. Our homes are geared to facilitating an unforgettable vacation experience for large family groups. They are uniquely designed to provide ample space for everyone to gather, cook, dine, etc. as well as a private space for each family that they can retreat to. Amusement for kids (both young and old) as well as toys and gadgets for the adults make our homes a place that you don't really need to leave in order to find relaxation and entertainment. Our homes are also a special place for couples that have chosen them as the location for their family wedding.

                                  The house is located across the valley from the Sunday River Ski Area -- less than a five minute drive. Make a left onto Sunday River Rd. from Route 2 at the Brew Pub, follow Sunday River Rd. to the first fork in the road -- bear right towards the covered bridge, continue along Sunday River rd to the second fork in the road -- bear right again, pass the covered bridge on your left and then make your first right onto Douglass Rd., then make your second left onto Keystone Drive, your first left onto Steamboat Drive, and then your first left onto Powder Ridge Rd. We are the first house on the right at the top of the cul de sac. At the moment, we are the only home on the cul de sac. Our property is 4.45 acres and is located next to Timber lands on one side and an empty lot on the other.

                                  Golf: The Sunday River Area is home to two fabulous golf courses: The Sunday River Golf Club and The Bethel Inn Resort Golf Course. The Sunday River Golf Club was completed in 2005 and has won recognition as one of the best courses around: Golf Digest -- Top Ten Best New Upscale Public Courses; Travel + Leisure Golf -- Top Ten Best New Courses in the World; Golfweek -- #1 Course in Maine; GolfStyles New England -- Public Course of the Year. The Bethel Inn Golf Course is a 6,663 yard, par 72 course that was originally built in 1913 and redesigned in 1988: America's Greatest Golf Resorts magazine -- Top Ten Courses in the Northeast; Golf Digest -- 3 1/2 stars; the course is home to New England PGA Fall Festival Pro-Am and the New England Couples Tournament.

                                  Ski: Sunday River is often referred to as the Vail of the East. Boasting 8 peaks and infinite terrain, this mountain has something for skiers of all levels: 131 trails; 8 interconnected mountain peaks (White Cap, Locke Mountain, Barker Mountain, Spruce Peak, North Peak, Aurora Peak, Oz, Jordan Bowl); 18 lifts including 4 hi-speed quads and a brand new chondola!; as a result of their advance snow making -- the 'most dependable snow in the East'; 80% of the terrain is covered by the resorts snow making equipment -- as long as the weather is cold, you can depend on Sunday River skiing to be fantastic! Sunday River is also home to 6 terrain parks and in 2008 was the mountain where the new world quarter pipe record was set by Simon Dumont -- 35 feet!! If you are just learning to ski or need a refresher, Sunday River's Perfect Turn Ski School is one of the top ski clinics in the East -- lot's of classes and one on one instruction -- guaranteed to make skiers or snow boarders out of your kids
