Guestbook comments from the manager

I certainly want to congratulate you and Walter for creating such a luxury home. Our group was reluctant to leave when Friday arrived and left with wonderful memories to share with colleagues and friends. Please accept my sincere thanks for your generous donation for our retreat. Our group is already putting together details for the annual 20th retreat to be held the last week of April or the first week in May of 2011. If you and Walter would like to consider another form of donation for rental of the home to the group for next year please let me know, they’ve already indicated SkiEsta is where they want to meet...

Great House Especially When the Weather Goes South

  • 5 of 5

Arrived and everything was in perfect order. Had some questions and the owner's and caretaker answered them quickly. We had some very bad weather the first few days that made skiing tough but this house kept the kids occupied. We had 18 people and at times you could lose track of folks so plenty of room. We will be back at some point.

Better, infinitely better than advertised!!

  • 5 of 5

The rental receives a 10 out of 5 Stars. The location was unbelievably fantastic overlooking the mountain, framed by provided Xmas decorations, including a huge fully decorated tree. The facility was immaculately clean. The kitchen is a kitchen to die for. All the amenities, including the 3 Hot Tubs, well maintained large indoor pool, steam and sauna rooms,and theater were also to die for. My rating,a 10 out of 5 is insufficient to fully describe the property!!!

Wedding at Skiesta May 2014

  • 5 of 5

Skiesta was the best place to have our wedding and I wouldn't want to have it anywhere else. The place is magnificent and it was so special to spend a long weekend there and celebrate our marriage with our friends and family. Sophia, the owner, was very nice and responsive to our questions, easy to work with. The family that stayed with us enjoyed the swimming pool, hot tubs, theater and overall ambiance. 7 months later I still have dreams about staying there.

Beautiful, Fun and Luxury in Maine

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I got married at Skiesta in May 2013. We viewed it quickly in person the year prior but knew when we saw it that that was our venue! It is even more beautiful and awe-inspiring in person than it is in the online pictures. We invited our entire bridal party to stay with us and each person walked in and just stood there amazed at it. Each room is as nice as any 5-star hotel room - with a little more character thrown in. With bathrooms in each room, you can have 15 people staying with you and never see some people!! The jacquzzis make each floor fun - particularly the rooftop one! Every room is clean - the cleaning crew does an amazing job for such a large place. The "basement" floor has its own kitchen for those rooming downstairs and the pool, sauna and steam room down there also make each guest wondering what to do next. The technology in the house is impressive - but honestly the most impressive part is the view looking at Sunday River. We saw the ski resort with some snow left on the trails with the rest green - but honestly winter or summer would still be just as breathtaking. Parking is more convenient than the website lets on - and with good skills you can fit and position plenty of cars there. Our only regret was that we were only there for 3 1/2 days - which (admittedly it was our wedding) flew by.

The owners are immediately responsive and have a crew of people ready to arrive and provide assistance. With one miniscule issue regarding speakers, people arrived to take care of it - and not later that afternoon or the next day, but literally within the hour.

To a tee, each and every guest that stayed with us talked about coming back to the mansion each year - as an annual getaway. In fact, we had not even looked at the other mansion down south - but after seeing this, we were all curious and interested in experiencing that one as well.

I'm sure that many people have amazing venues for their wedding - this one was special to us because it made all of our guests have that much more fun. And, to top it off, the local vendors were the most friendly people I have every met - and did fantastically (a large part due to the fact that know Skiesta very well - so thank you Good Food Bethel - Heather and Dave), Craig Angevine at YeahBud photography, and our DJ, Jeff Hunter).

If you're just thinking about Skiesta, then stop thinking and book it (it fills up fast!).

Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

We recently had our wedding at the Ski Esta, and we couldn't have asked for a better venue. The house was great for a wedding. Plenty of rooms for our friends and family. Pretty sure the most talked about thing at our wedding was the toilet in the half bathroom on the first floor... to know what I mean you'll have to rent the house. Sophia was great to deal with and always responded quickly with any questions that we had. Sophia and Walter thank you so much for letting us have our wedding at the Ski Esta.

The house is located across the valley from the Sunday River Ski Area -- less than a five minute drive. Make a left onto Sunday River Rd. from Route 2 at the Brew Pub, follow Sunday River Rd. to the first fork in the road -- bear right towards the covered bridge, continue along Sunday River rd to the second fork in the road -- bear right again, pass the covered bridge on your left and then make your first right onto Douglass Rd., then make your second left onto Keystone Drive, your first left onto Steamboat Drive, and then your first left onto Powder Ridge Rd. We are the first house on the right at the top of the cul de sac. At the moment, we are the only home on the cul de sac. Our property is 4.45 acres and is located next to Timber lands on one side and an empty lot on the other.

Golf: The Sunday River Area is home to two fabulous golf courses: The Sunday River Golf Club and The Bethel Inn Resort Golf Course. The Sunday River Golf Club was completed in 2005 and has won recognition as one of the best courses around: Golf Digest -- Top Ten Best New Upscale Public Courses; Travel + Leisure Golf -- Top Ten Best New Courses in the World; Golfweek -- #1 Course in Maine; GolfStyles New England -- Public Course of the Year. The Bethel Inn Golf Course is a 6,663 yard, par 72 course that was originally built in 1913 and redesigned in 1988: America's Greatest Golf Resorts magazine -- Top Ten Courses in the Northeast; Golf Digest -- 3 1/2 stars; the course is home to New England PGA Fall Festival Pro-Am and the New England Couples Tournament.

Ski: Sunday River is often referred to as the Vail of the East. Boasting 8 peaks and infinite terrain, this mountain has something for skiers of all levels: 131 trails; 8 interconnected mountain peaks (White Cap, Locke Mountain, Barker Mountain, Spruce Peak, North Peak, Aurora Peak, Oz, Jordan Bowl); 18 lifts including 4 hi-speed quads and a brand new chondola!; as a result of their advance snow making -- the 'most dependable snow in the East'; 80% of the terrain is covered by the resorts snow making equipment -- as long as the weather is cold, you can depend on Sunday River skiing to be fantastic! Sunday River is also home to 6 terrain parks and in 2008 was the mountain where the new world quarter pipe record was set by Simon Dumont -- 35 feet!! If you are just learning to ski or need a refresher, Sunday River's Perfect Turn Ski School is one of the top ski clinics in the East -- lot's of classes and one on one instruction -- guaranteed to make skiers or snow boarders out of your kids
