About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bathroom Ski House Close To Everything

Spacious and comfortable ski house conveniently located less than 5 minutes away from South Ridge at Sunday River and less than 5 minutes to downtown Bethel's shops and restaurants.

This home comfortably sleeps as many as 12 people. The first floor master bedroom suite features a king bed, bathroom, and walk in closet. Upstairs is a queen size bedroom and full bathroom. The kids bunkroom has two sets of bunkbeds and plenty of floor space to move around.

The lower level of the home has 2 additional twin beds and a brand new pullout queen sleep sofa with a comfortable memory foam mattress. And for fun while you are downstairs try out the full size ping pong table and enjoy the flat screen HD TV with Blu-Ray disc player as well as an assortment of board games. A separate laundry room is also there when you need it.

The upstairs living room features a cozy gas fireplace for shaking off the cold from a day on the slopes. There is also a 40 inch flat screen HD TV w/ Blu-Ray disc player and surround sound stereo system. The Blu-Ray player is connnected to the internet and can stream music and movies from Pandora and Netflix as well as a host of other internet entertainment services. HD Cable TV and free WI-FI as well.

A fully appointed kitchen has everything you need to prepare a fine meal. Bring your favorite wine along and keep it cool in the separate wine fridge.

Step out onto the large deck to check out the stars or to toss a couple of steaks on the gas grill. On those warmer nights opt for the fully screened in porch to enjoy the crisp mountain air.

This home was built in 2009 so it has all of the modern comforts with all of the ski house charm. Under 5 minutes to the mountain and less than 5 minutes to town we think you'll agree that the overall convenience can't be beat!

Why Len Robinson chose Bethel

We've raised our family on skis and so many of our memories have come in the snow. Wanting to become a part of the Bethel and Sunday River communities inspired us to buy a home here. The area has so much to offer year round its a great place to spend time and make some memories!

What makes this cabin unique

It may be a little cliché but its true about what they say....its all about location, location, location when it comes to picking a place to live....or to vacation. Being close to those things where you will spend most of your time. We love not having to drive more than 5 minutes to get to those places. No matter where you always feels like you're close to 'home'.

Perfect Bethel/Sunday River Location

  • 4 of 5

We highly recommend the Powda Shack. It is in the ideal location for almost all activities, shopping, restaurants and etc. in the Bethel/Sunday River Region. The house was homey and comfortable and provided all of the necessary amenities for a successful vacation.

A nice, clean, and well equipped cabin in a nice region! just watch out for insects in the area.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Powda Shack for 3 days in early July, it was a clean and charming place to have short vacation in the heart of nature with a great weather. Pretty close to Sunday river and Steps Falls reservation! Just make sure you wear proper clothes when you are hanging out especially at nights, to avoid ticks and other insects. We used DEET sprays as well, though not sure how effective they are.

Perfect winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with 11 others over New Years this year, and we had a fabulous time. The place is cozy and larger even than the pictures show.

We had more than ample space and the place was fully equipped to handle any and all needs during our stay.

It is close to the mountain and Sunday river got nearly 15" just before our arrival which made for a fantastic ski weekend!

We will absolutely be back!

Thank you Powdashack for a great weekend!

Jayne and crew :-)
