Newry house description

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 will boast over 1500 square feet of living space spread out over three floors. This two bedroom, two 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. Your 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!

                  The Sunday River/Bethel/Newry area is one of the most beautiful and varied adventure and wedding destinations in the Northeast. 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!

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: 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.com.

                  Why the Owner Chose Newry:
                  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).

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  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.
