My boyfriend and I were traveling from the southwest to visit family this summer and stayed here for the week. Everything about our stay was amazing. The house itself has been beautifully designed and prepped for renters with literally every detail in mind and was immaculately clean upon our arrival. When you're on vacation, nothing beats being able to wake up in the morning sans alarm and sip coffee from the porch swing, get into a good book from an Adirondack chair, put together big meals in the fully stocked kitchen (we took advantage of an awesome natural food store 5 minutes down the road called The Good Food Store...which also caters!) and sit down for dinner around the huge dining table before spending the rest of the night hanging out by fire pit and star gazing from the hot tub.
Along with some R&R, our group really wanted to soak up the perfect summer temps (low to mid 70s!) with some outdoor adventure, so we were thrilled to find so many options at our finger tips (i.e. 5-15 minutes away). In just a few days we hiked through Grafton Notch State Park, tubed/kayaked down the Bear River, picnicked alongside some beautiful waterfalls (Step Falls, Screw Auger Falls) and even did a little cliff jumping at Frenchman's Hole. On our next stay here, we plan to also try out the zipline and downhill mountain biking at Sunday River. We'll definitely be back AND recommending the Maine Ski House to family/friends. There's no better way to experience Maine's motto: the way life should be!
