About Sue Peterson

Our family is very fortunate to live on Cape Cod with it's beautiful ocean beaches and then have this peaceful retreat on a pond in the mountains! We love all the activities of both locations...boating, tennis, hiking, swimming, and skiing!

Sue Peterson purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Sue Peterson chose Sunday River

I chose this Maine rental home because of the privacy, beach, pond, mountain views, and location. It was the family favorite after four years of looking all over Maine!

What makes this chalet unique

Slower heart rate, lower blood pressure, deeper breaths, more laughter, giggles, and smiles. It's a chance to read an entire great book. Enjoy a unique sunset most nights. Have relaxed conversations with family & friends. Embrace nature. Paddle a canoe out to the beaver dams or go down the creek. Tell ghost stories around the campfire. Barbeque a bison burger, drink homemade beer, and have a slice of Melby's BERRY BERRY pie! Enjoy a long, sound sleep!!

This special location is on Proctor Pond on the edge of East Stoneham but in Albany Township (not in a town) but between N. Waterford and Lovell. Many trails around pond and out to waterfalls over river bridge, etc. Nearby gorge, quarry for rock hounds, gorgeous mountain & water views at nearby hikes up Sabattus Mt. in Lovell or Pleasant Mt. in Bridgeton. Relax at chalet with hammock, beach and clear water for swimming, fishing and boating - very private and peaceful but can drive 5--10 min. for theatre, restaurants, galleries, etc. Wonderful vacation location for all ages to enjoy !!

Beautiful and Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

The chalet was everything it said and more! Breathtaking views from the back patio to the sunset on the private beach! The chalet was so spacious and we didn't feel we were on top of each other! The bunk house was fun to take the young kids in the morning to play and not wake everyone else! The wood stove was the perfect touch to the cool nights and mornings! This was my first trip to Maine and my first time using VRBO and it did not disappoint! Sue is amazing to work with and I highly recommend Sue and this chalet!

Beautiful Chalet and beach

  • 5 of 5

The chalet is perfect for families or couples. The kitchen has the essentials and the house is in perfect condition with a new stone patio overlooking lake. The sandy beach is perfect for the little ones and for swimming. Will return for a fun vacation at the lake.

AMAZING family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented Sue's Chalet for a week and had an AMAZING time!

The house was as described, well appointed and had a kitchen with more than we anticipated which made our stay. As VRBO owners ourselves, we can be picky and this house did not disappoint! We actually are taking away several ideas to incorporate into our own rental.

Our kids LOVED the pond and all enjoyed the fishing, canoeing and relaxing on the beach. The sunsets were incredible and very relaxing. This was the first vacation in a long time we have not had to pry the electronics from the kids hands (even though the WIFI worked great!) and we hope the sounds of them laughing all day did not disturb the neighbors.

Sue was very easy to deal with and the rental process was easy and secure.

Overall this location is well worth your money and we highly recommend it! We will be return visitors as we just left today and are already discussing renting it again!

Great week Great location Great time Great fishing

  • 5 of 5

Exceptional "camp",not really a camp beautiful home great neighbor support we had no issues the sandy beach was the key ingredient that made it great with young grand children.

The stairs to and from the beach were a challenge.

Beautiful scenic location the moose was away this week on vacation, never saw him/her.

Best ever fishing expierence would drive up just for a day of fishing!
