About Wendy or Gary Polonski
Gary and Wendy Polonski lived, worked and raised their two daughters in Massachusetts while spending lots of time skiing and hiking at Sunday River. When the girls went to college, they relocated permanently to their second home on Powder Ridge. Gary is a trained artist (painting and sculpture) and the Artist's Studio was built for him to paint/sculpt and display his works. While along the way, they discovered a love for sharing their incredibly property with others by hosting guests through homeaway.
Wendy or Gary Polonski purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Wendy or Gary Polonski chose Newry
The Polonski Family has been coming to Sunday River since 1995. The area grew to be an all year round destination for them and the idea for moving permanently was born. The land on which the main home and studio are located was purchased, and the dream became a reality. In July 2008, Gary and Wendy sold their home in Hingham, MA and made the final move.
What makes this Apartment unique
The Artist's Studio is an amazing location only 1 mile from Sunday River Resort. While located close to everything outdoors, it maintains privacy, peacefulness and incredible beauty. Guests can bring their dogs and feel completely at ease since the property is located 1000 feet down and away from the closest rural main road. In the Spring Summer and Fall, guests can feel free to use the large deck/famer's porch of the main home for lounging in the sun, outdoor dining and barbequeing.

This is such a beautiful home. We had a wonderfully relaxing weekend. Our host thought of everything from the coffee cake to the right amount of all amenities. Will be recommending to many friends.
What a wonderful experience!
Wendy and a Gary were exceptionally hospitable, sharing information about the area, detailed instructions about our rental, and providing us fresh, delicious muffins upon our arrival. Their flexibility with check in/check out was very appreciated.
The studio itself was a breathtaking surprise. The views are incredible! It’s also very clean and comfortable.
We highly recommend The Artist’s Studio for your vacation getaway!
Super clean, wonderfully decorated, great proximity to the ski resort and surrounding hiking trails
Had an amazing time at the artist's studio. This is our second trip there this ski season, and the weather conditions couldn't have been better this time around. Took advantage of the local snowshoe trails as well with my dogs, who absolutely loved being off leash the entire time. The amenities of the studio included everything we needed, and to top it all off muffins and k-cups were provided as well!
Amazing Studio Getaway!
Loved this studio! Stayed with my boyfriend and our dog for 4 nights and loved every second of it! The wood stove was awesome and the view is incredible! Wendy and Gary are the best and made our stay extra special. We enjoyed our time and its everything we wanted and needed. Truly a great place; very relaxing atmosphere and stunning views.
Looking forward to staying again next year!
Love this place and Wendy and Gary make it even better. The studio itself is well decorated, cozy and has everything you need - esp for a little ski getaway. Wendy and Gary make it even better with their extra touches like home made coffee cake, helpful guides, and personal interaction (they are so accommodating and pleasant to talk to). My only regret in leaving this review is that I know availability will be limited next time I want to stay! You really can't go wrong here and I'm looking forward to my next stay.
We have had such a wonderful stay at the Artist’s Studio. Warm and welcoming hosts, a lovely, comfortable, well equipped space, and a spectacular view of the mountain. Can’t wait to come back!
The Sunday River/Bethel/Newry area is one of the most beautiful and versatile outdoor adventure destinations in the Northeast. As a winter wonderland, you can enjoy downhill and cross country skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, tubing, ice skating, snowmobiling, ziplining, and even dog sled rides in the same general location. Take a break from the outdoors with shopping and dining in charming downtown Bethel or visit nearby North Conway, NH. During the Fall season, 'leaf peepers' can ride the chair lift up to the top of Sunday River Resort and experience nature's amazing beauty. In addition to many local craft fairs, you can attend the annual National Wife Carrying Championship on Columbus Day Weekend. Spring and Summer add golfing at Sunday River Golf Club and the Bethel Inn Country Club, hiking, biking, camping, backpacking, swimming, wildlife observation, motorcycling, and mountain biking. The rustic beauty of this area has something to offer for everyone! If you are coming for one of the many beautiful mountain weddings, extend your stay longer and make it a vacation. Since you can bring your dog, you don't have to feel guilty about kenneling your favorite furry friend.
