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
