Newry House Rental Photos and Description

10 bedrooms, 10 1/2 bathrooms, sleeps 26

Beautiful Sunday River Maine! Get ready for the vacation of your life!

Perched high upon the beautiful Sunday River... Maine’s Powder Ridge, The Heights provides you with an extraordinary view of the majestic peaks, which comprise the Mahoosuc Mountain range and the valley beyond. Its construction just completed, The Heights is a spectacular, 7500 square foot, contemporary home with 2000 square feet of glass frontage, privately situated on five acres of woodland to maximize serenity and seclusion.

The Heights offers nine bedrooms, including six master king suites (four of which have their own private balconies) with luxury linens, a Queen bedroom, three bunk rooms, ten and a half bathrooms, two towering stone fireplaces in the vaulted living rooms, two gas fireplaces, two eight-man hot tubs (for your viewing of the fireworks at Sunday River on Saturday nights), an office complete with Computer and high speed wireless Internet access.

Added Details:: The Heights is two separate units... The Eagle's Nest and The Bobcat's Den, which can be rented as a complete entity or independently. Its unique award-winning floor plan designed by KLM, allows for free flowing multi-level living as one full unit or two separate locked-off units with completely private entrances.

The units are completely different, yet uniquely spectacular and fully soundproofed. The goal of this design is to provide luxurious accommodations for small corporate retreats or for large family get-aways. Beautifully appointed with classy, comfortable furniture, we are targeting groups of families and executives.

Amenities:: We have almost every amenity available! For sleeping accommodations, there are 5 master King Suites with private baths, luxury linens and three have private balconies. There is an enormous game room with a regulation size pool table & Two Huge 65 inch HD TVs with surround sound systems. We have central air-conditioning, two stone fireplaces with plenty of firewood, 2 gas fireplaces, a private in-ground heated swimming pool, and two private 8-man hot tubs.

In each kitchen, we have a dishwasher, an ice-making refrigerator, a coffee-maker, stove with oven, microwave, and all the dishes and pots and pans you could use! Downstairs, there is a washer and dryer in each unit, with an iron and board. We have a large Bose stereo with CD player for use indoors or out at the pool. Microsoft X-Box in each unit. Wireless DSL Internet throughout the house and a Pentium 4 Computer on the Bobcat's side. There are mountain bikes, kayaks and canoes at your disposal. Bed linens & towels are provided.

The Great Outdoors:: During the summer months, kayaking, canoeing, whitewater rafting, hiking, and biking are available. Rent an ATV and go exploring with a guided tour or on your own. Fishing Trips and supplies are available. Go horseback riding, or on a carriage ride. Or moose and animal viewing. Relax and go to the movies. Available for your use at the house will be kayaks, mountain bikes, snowshoes, sleds, and snow tubes. Nearby are a miniature golf course, a huge water slide, shops in historic Bethel, and many restaurants and nights spots.

A great way to see western Maine is by throwing on a pair of hiking boots and just walking out the front door. One of the best spots is Grafton Notch State Park, located along the Maine-New Hampshire border, just minutes away from The Heights. The most famous footpath in the world, the Appalachian Trail, passes through the park on the way to its finish in Mt. Katahdin. Throughout the park you will see waterfalls, caves, and incredible mountain vistas.

Guestbook comments from the manager
My wife and I had our wedding reception at The Heights during Memorial Day weekend 2012 and I also rented the house for a weekend in 2008. The house is absolutely beautiful and the owners do an excellent job of helping you prepare for entertaining a large group of people. All of my guests kept commenting on what a great house we rented and how beautiful the view was from almost every room. The house is clean, fun, well stocked with all the essentials. It is nearly impossible not to have a good time here. The owners are well connected in the area and are able to provide excellent recommendations on who to use for catering (Gourmet in a Pinch = Excellent), groceries, spa services, as well as what to do in this area of Maine. I would recommend this house for wedding receptions, family/friend reunions, ski vacations, and large group getaways.

OUR FAMILY BI-ANNUAL VACATION IN MAINE

  • 5 of 5
In July, our family had our bi-annual vacation in the "Heights".  We're a large family, normally 23 people, missing 2 this year because of summer school.  We had just a fantastic time at the "Heights".  Unfortunately, we had a lot of rain during our week, but everyone still had a great time. There were a lot of games played, movies watched, hiking, golfing at the Sunday River Golf Course, some canoeing on the last day (which was glorious weatherwise), and shopping by the gals in Bethel and also in North Conway; in the town and at the outlet stores.Dinners enjoyed in the Pool House were awesome!  The home is very well supplied and the sleeping worked out great for all of us.  We even got to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary in the Pool House.  Food was catered by the "Good Cook", I believe is the name.We would highly recommend this home for your vacation!  We came back with many wonderful memories!

Owner's Response: Hello Wine Guy, And thank you for your review... so happy that you all enjoyed your trip. Even in spite of the sometimes-inclement weather, Sunday River is always a wonderful choice for vacation because it is in the glorious State of Maine. Looking at the sweeping vistas from the one of the decks at the house allows you to feel at one with nature. Every season has its draw to us as a family.... winter and summer are the high seasons, however Fall and Spring should not be overlooked. The foliage and the golf of Fall are spectacular.... and Spring - what about White water rafting?! I grew up in Maine and I am so happy to have a vacation home there now!

MULTI-FAMILIES FALL FOLIAGE TRIP IN MAINE

  • 5 of 5
In the first week of October, we had a such great time together at the "Heights". The home is very well supplied and the sleeping worked out great for all of us. The owner Susan is very helpful. Usually, in minutes you'll get a response from her. We had a minor problem with the shower in one of the bathroom. Susan called the handyman and fixed the shower head in such a short period of time. We were extremely pleased with all she has done for all of us. We would highly recommend this home for your vacation! We came back with many wonderful memories!

GREAT HOUSE, GREAT SERVICE, GREAT ALL AROUND!

  • 5 of 5
Our family gets together for a reunion every 2 years. The Heights was a great choice, everyone loved the house and its ammenities. This is a compliment, when I say we had some very minor issues, but with one phone call all issues were immediately resolved. (minor being the pool heater wouldn't work, pilot light being out), Very responsive and courteous service. Thanks to the Murphy's for use of your house to make a great reunion even more special. House very spacious, ample refrigerator and counter space, very clean. We didn't want to leave! I would recommend this house to anyone who wants ample space with children of all ages, meaning the kids would be playing in the game room, or watching a movie in the theater room, and the adults could easily hold a conversation without being disturbed. There are plenty of TV's spread around the house, but I am happy to say that we didn't turn one TV on the entire week! All pictures on the website really do represent the beauty of the home. The pool and the poolhouse were fantastic, along with the beautiful views of the hillsides!

GREAT HOME FOR AN UNFORGETABLE FAMILY GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My family went up to the beautiful house in June for my parent's 50th wedding anniversay. We have a huge family, and usually have a tough time trying to get us all under the same roof! Thankfully, we were all able to stay at a beautiful home, and got to spend a week with extended family that we don't always get to see. My parents were able to easily get around the house, and said it was the best family reunion that they can think of. Everyone from aged 2 to 77 enjoyed the house, which doesn't always happen!

The owners went above and beyond making sure we were comfortable, and were easily available when we had a quick question about the downstairs movie theatre (big hit with the grandkids!). So many special touches around the entire house really made us feel like we could have been in any one of our houses, not in a bland hotel. Would certainly recommend this house to any of my friends and anyone else looking for a great vacation home. I'm sure my family will be looking for another excuse to spend another awesome getaway up there again soon!!

GROUP REUNION

  • 5 of 5
I rented the Heights for a college reunion with friends from across the country. We have done this at different locations for the past 10 years, There were 18 of us and we are all in our late 50's and 60's.
The house was fabulous, the views spectacular, the beds so comfortable. Everyone was in agreement that this was the best location we had been to yet. The kitchens had everything you needed to make a gourmet meal and the extra long table allowed us to all sit together. The best of all was the pool house, it was our hand out place for cookouts and drinks by and in the pool.
I would recommend this location to everyone, you won't be disappointed.

PERFECT HOUSE FOR A GROUP SKI TRIP

  • 5 of 5
I plan a ski trip for a rather large group of friends every year. This is the second year we've stayed in the house - after a wonderful year last year, we definitely wanted to come back! The house is great for skiiers and boarders because it's close to Sunday River (the resort is reliably good, even this year when there hasn't been any real snow) and offers VIP parking passes. We've found the house is also perfect for all our friends and the little kids who don't like to ski/board because there's so much to do at the house and different areas to spread out in - the movie theatre, the pool/foosball table, 2 hot tubs, sleds, etc. With excellent cooks (and young families) in our group, we particularly love having two kitchens. In fact, we've even thought about planning a summer trip up here just so we can take advantage of the other parts of the house not available in the winter (i.e., pool and pool house and other outdoor actvities). The owners, Susan and Arthur, are friendly and very responsive. They clearly take pride in their home and seem to enjoy sharing their home with others! Thanks for letting my group of friends stay at the Heights!

Map

Car: recommended

The Sunday River/Bethel area offers a vacationer many options for outdoor activities. Included is, of course, some of the Northeast's best snowboarding, snow tubing, and skiing, both downhill and cross-country, as well as ice-skating, snow shoeing, sledding, dog sledding, sleigh rides and ski-mobiling. During the summer months, kayaking, canoeing, whitewater rafting, hiking, and biking are available. The Sunday River Golf Course with design by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. will become one of your favorite destinations when it opens in the Summer of 2004. Rent an ATV and go exploring with a guided tour or on your own. Fishing Trips and supplies are available. Go horseback riding, or on a carriage ride. Or moose and animal viewing. Relax and go to the movies. Available for your use at the house will be kayaks, mountain bikes, snowshoes, sleds, and snow tubes. Nearby are a miniature golf course, a huge water slide, shops in historic Bethel, and many restaurants and nights spots.

Golf: The Sunday River Golf Course with design by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. will become one of your favorite destinations when you visit. Just a short drive away from the doorstep of The Heights, it is already one of the most beautiful courses in the Northeast.

There are also many other spectacular golf courses in this area. The Bethel Inn offers one of the most popular courses in the United States. However, there are so many choices available, one could visit a different golf course every day of a week's vacation and never play on the same course.

Ski: The Sunday River/Bethel area offers a vacationer many options for outdoor activities. Included is, of course, some of the Northeast's best snowboarding, snow tubing, and skiing, both downhill and cross-country, as well as ice-skating, snow shoeing, sledding, dog sledding, sleigh rides and snowmobiling.

The Sunday River Ski Resort, located about 2 miles from the front door of The Heights, has over 120 trails that connect eight different mountain peaks and has runs for every taste and ability. Snowboarders have 4 different terrain parks, including a super pipe and a half pipe. The Sunday River Learn-To-Ski Program is designed to get even the most beginner of skiers or boarders up and moving.
