Beautiful 'cabin' that sleeps 11 with incredible views of Sunday River Resort
Only a 5 minute drive to Sunday River Resort's South Ridge Lodge, 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 boasts over 1500 square feet of living space spread out over three floors. This two bedroom, two full 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. You 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!

About Wendy or Gary Polonski
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.
Wendy or Gary Polonski purchased this House in 2013
Why Wendy or Gary Polonski 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).
What makes this House unique
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.

My husband and our dog Dwight stayed at the cabin for a week. We had a great time here. Cabin is wonderful, has everything you need! Very impressive. Views are spectacular. Very relaxing. Upon arrival we were greeted by a delicious pastry and a welcoming note. Beautiful hinking trails nearby, we hiked everyday with our dog. Will definitely come back one day.
Third time here, love it! Can't wait to come back!

Perfect home away
Lovely cabin! The host was very attentively caring with all needs provided. The handmade muffin wecomed us upon our arrival. Very warm home away for your ski trip. We enjoyed our stay very much!
My Husband and I had the privilege of staying in this beautiful home. While it was only a short weekend, the owner made us feel right at home. As soon as we walked in, the house smelled amazing. the detail in woodwork was extremely fascinating and well chosen. The home was very clean and we loved that they were so welcome for us to bring our dog! We were lucky enough to have a beautiful weekend, weather wise. We were able to sit out on the deck in the late hours of the night in their custom chairs, snuggled in a blanket while sipping a beverage and watching the groomers light up the mountain. This was definitely a memorable trip and will soon be returning!
Wonderful stay with friends!
We had another great weekend at the Artist's Cabin. Wendy and Gary could not have been more accommodating. Everything was in perfect order when we arrived. Truly a wonderful weekend. Thanks again, Wendy and Gary!
