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!!

Sandy Beach, Alpine Chalet on Peaceful, Private Pond
average rating of 5.0 based on 4 reviews
Portland, ME

A perfect week with family and friends!

  • 5 of 5

If you enjoy laying down on the hammock under a shady spruce, tanning on the private beach, exploring the pond and its creeks in three of the Chalets watercrafts, reeling in fish after fish, golfing hiking and spending time with family and friends, look no further this is the place for you!

It was an absolute pleasure for my family and dear friends to stay at the Chalet, on the pristine and peace full private pond. Fishing was great for all ages! The kids enjoyed catching a variety of blue gills and lake trout using night crawlers while the bigger kids and adults caught two seven inch bass right off the private beach just steps from the Chalet using rubber worms. Fishing reels, tackle, a raft canoe, and kayak are all at available on the property for use and make for great exploring.

In our option the Chalet far exceeded our expectation! The Chalet was spotless on arrival, and the owners have done a magnificent job organizing information on various amenities from ping pong to movies, board games to camp firewood and citronella candles around the Chalet. Only a short distance off this amazing property we had a wonderful time hiking in the White Mountains, golfing at Lake Kezar Country Club. Less than five minutes down the road is a general store with friend people, fresh produce and the most delicious bacon and buffalo sausages.

Thank you for an amazing and memorable time.

We spent a week at the house with my parents and 2 of our daughters and our 2 year old grandson. We had an absolute blast playing with Joey in the water. The beach is very private as stated, great for swimming and kayaking or canoeing. We too were fortunate enough to see a female moose across the pond 1 morning. Hated to see our time here end, but there is always next year. Would highly recommend if you enjoy peace and quiet.

What a gem

  • 5 of 5

Thank you! We had the best time imaginable. The moose sightings were absolutely highlights as well as sunsets, great fishing, boating, campfires, ping pong, and lots of time on the beach. What a great place you have and we are so grateful we found it/you! Your notes were helpful and we enjoyed walking around Kazar Falls. Thank you again -- we'd recommend it to anyone looking for a getaway!

Quiet, lovely large chalet with nice beach, swimming and privacy!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this nice house two years ago in August. The house is cute, plenty of room and 3 nice bedrooms ,1 full bath with tub down and a new half bath upstairs. One BR is downstairs in case you have someone elderly. There are 35? steps to beach which is large and completely private, The swimming was in the pond was great. We had several fun campfires and we even saw a moose across the pond in the early morning! Also great canoeing and fishing. If you want a quiet spot,with a pretty water view, beach and swimming, wildlife and privacy-- this is the place for you! If it rains you can head to Conway to all the outlets, movies etc. There was a fun playroom with ping pong downstairs as well as a full size washer and dryer. Nice rental and I would recommend it.

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 !!
