                  Car: Necessary

                  The Sunday River/Bethel/Newry area is one of the most beautiful and versatile outdoor adventure 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 nearby North Conway, NH. During the Fall season, 'leaf peepers' can ride the chair lift up to the top of Sunday River Resort and experience nature's amazing beauty. In addition to many local craft fairs, you can attend the annual National Wife Carrying Championship on Columbus Day Weekend. Spring and Summer add golfing at Sunday River Golf Club and the Bethel Inn Country Club, hiking, biking, camping, backpacking, swimming, wildlife observation, motorcycling, and mountain biking. The rustic beauty of this area has something to offer for everyone!

                  If you are coming for one of the many beautiful mountain weddings, extend your stay longer and make it a vacation. Since you can bring your dog, you don't have to feel guilty about kenneling your favorite furry friend.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: Gary and Wendy Polonski lived, worked and raised their two daughters in Massachusetts while spending lots of time skiing and hiking at Sunday River. When the girls went to college, they relocated permanently to their second home on Powder Ridge. Gary is a trained artist (painting and sculpture) and the Artist's Studio was built for him to paint/sculpt and display his works. While along the way, they discovered a love for sharing their incredibly property with others by hosting guests through homeaway.com.

                  Why the Owner Chose Newry:
                  The Polonski Family has been coming to Sunday River since 1995. The area grew to be an all year round destination for them and the idea for moving permanently was born. The land on which the main home and studio are located was purchased, and the dream became a reality. In July 2008, Gary and Wendy sold their home in Hingham, MA and made the final move.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  The Artist's Studio is an amazing location only 1 mile from Sunday River Resort. While located close to everything outdoors, it maintains privacy, peacefulness and incredible beauty. Guests can bring their dogs and feel completely at ease since the property is located 1000 feet down and away from the closest rural main road. In the Spring Summer and Fall, guests can feel free to use the large deck/famer's porch of the main home for lounging in the sun, outdoor dining and barbequeing.
