We have been Mainers our whole lives and love the Carabassett Valley retreat that we had built and purchased. We currently live in Scarborough, Maine and enjoy our beaches, lighthouses,Old Port Area shopping districts and the many fine restaurants that Portland offers. We are at the point in our lives where we crave the Winter warmth and sunshine in the Caribbean, Arizona & Florida during the Maine winter months.
That said, we are now renting our little piece of paridise during the winter ski season for our guests to enjoy. Sugarloaf Area is the finest ski resort in the Northeast and we have enjoyed many years of cross country and downhill skiing. Gary has been a 'Sugarloafer' since 1971 and will never forget his high school skip days when the mountain is covered in fresh snow and just 'Had to Go to the Loaf '.
Our Summers are now vacations at our condo in Carabassett Valley where we enjoy the many natural gifts that the area offers. ( Hiking, Kayaking, Fishing, Biking, Running, Hometown parades and festivals)
Sugarloaf area is a 4 Season resort and only a 3.5 hour drive to Quebec City and Montreal, Canada .
Gary Gillespie purchased this condo in 2008
We are the first owners and selected the best building lot of Timberline Lodges. Our unit selection now enjoys an unobstructed view of Crocker Bowl and Bigelow Range from our rear deck, living room and master bedroom. Our back yard terrain slopes downhill to the South Branch of the Carabassett River. The Spring melt off creates a roaring river which is a very pleasing sound of nature as we drift off to sleep.
Wildlife is all around us and the sounds of darkness become alive while we enjoy sunsets towards Bigelow. We absolutely love our property and is a natural fit for all of our special guests.
In Winter, the finest skiing in the East is right outside our door. Mountainside shuttle transportation provides easy access to the base lodge in a few short minutes without the hassle of parking. In these months, Sugarloaf becomes a small town in itself and is truly fun, alive and well !
Our cozy unit is always warm with our fireplace, fine wines, great friends and family. We invite you to share our 'little piece of heaven'.
We are situated on the quiet side of the mountain where our sleepy hollow neighborhood resides. Our neighbors are wonderful and most condos are shared by friends and members of all ages within their family tree.
