Newry Chalet Rental Photos and Description

5 bdrms-3.5 bath-Sleeps 10 Adults+8 children-kitchen seats 18 for meals+games

Created in July 2012, an In-House Treasure Hunt for kids. Join in the fun, or just watch as the kids go room to room for answers to over 20 questions. The completed answers lead them to a hidden treasure chest full of surprises and treats.

The Maine Ski House offers something for everyone of all ages...

The open kitchen/dining/living rooms can keep everyone together for meals, socializing, and game playing. The well equipped kitchen is a cooks dream as there are ample supplies and prep areas for several people to help.There is a ton of storage, an extra fridge, and a beverage fridge by the coffee center.

The Rec Room has a Wii on its own TV, an Xbox 360 on its own TV, and a 55' TV can keep several different groups happy. There is also Foosball and an arcade game, a log-home doll house and some toys and books for young children.

The Three Cub Pub can accomodate 'older' kids for sports watching on 2 separate TV's.

The hot tub on the deck is a popular spot for the whole family...

The House and the Rec Room : The Maine Ski House was completed in August of 2010. All furnishings, appliances, linens, TV’s and electronics are brand new. The house was designed to accommodate large family and group gatherings. People of all ages will be happy and entertained with:

THE REC ROOM: Wii and Xbox on their own TV's, a 55' TV, Foosball, and a restored arcade game with approximately 60 classic games.

THE THREE CUB PUB: The pub has a second refrigerator, two more flat screen TV's, and seating to make you feel like you are really in your own pub.

THE MAIN LEVEL and HOT TUB : THE MAIN LEVEL: has a well -stocked large kitchen with commercial grade gas range and pots & pans, a pantry for food storage, and a separate beverage area for coffee and wine. The inviting large pub height table will accommodate your group to eat together and later play together. There are several board games to enjoy after a long day on the slopes.

THE HOT TUB: end your day star and satellite gazing from the 100 degree hot tub on the main level's deck.

A Great Experience!

Our group consisted of 10 adults and 8 children. We were originally scheduled to arrive on a Thursday and stay through Sunday, however a huge storm approaching was going to make it difficult for everyone in our party to arrive on Thursday. (Some of us had a 5.5 hour drive).
Paula, also aware that the storm was approaching, was very helpful in assisting us to make our arrival date a day earlier so that we wouldn’t have to drive in as treacherous conditions. Albeit, many of us still ran into snow, but not the 2 feet that arrived at the ski house after it was all over!
The house is amazing, Paula has thought of everything! The Ski House guide that Paula includes in the welcome packet is great if you have any type of questions at all! We were a little concerned that the driveway had not yet been plowed as our 4 wheel drive vehicles were having a hard time in the driveway. One contact to Paula and it was taken care of immediately. We were guessing that the snow removal businesses all were very busy considering the large amount of snow that fell.
If you are a group with children, the game room is incredible!! It entertained all of the children of various ages, while the adults were able to unwind upstairs in the kitchen area after long days at the mountain. We also made good use of The 3 cub pub. The kids also really enjoyed the Treasure Hunt.
The house is at a great location, just a couple of minutes from the mountain but far enough to have privacy.
Our group made great use of the amazing kitchen. We ate most of our meals in, and the kitchen was certainly well equipped to handle our very large group of people.
And of course, the hot tub was enjoyed throughout our stay.
Paula was so great to work with, and has not missed a detail in regards to the house. I would highly recommend the Maine Ski House.

Great purchase

We went with a group of 9 people. The whole process from booking to checkout was very smooth and organized, more than most places. It clearly run very professionally and the owners are organized and professional. The house was clean, well stocked. We got rained in one day and had to spend most of our time in the house but everyone enjoyed themselves because it was nice to spend time in their kitchen, they had board games, there were plenty of digital entertainment options and the hot tub is very nice.

We had three families-6 adults and 7 children stay comfortably in this house. The house has EVERYTHING. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. Paula, the owner, is super easy to work with. The layout and set up of this house is perfect. No detail has been overlooked. We plan on returning next year!

A Gem!

My husband and I and our 3 adult children stayed at The Maine Ski House over the long Thanksgiving weekend. The kids were hoping for some good skiing at Sunday River and my husband and I were looking to relax and enjoy our time with the kids. Everyone got what they wanted and more! The house is beautiful, homey, and extremely clean. Paula has thought of every amenity to make a renter's stay easy and carefree. The kitchen is large and included everything I needed to make our huge Thanksgiving feast. I had a local chef do all of my grocery shopping ahead of time and even had her prepare and leave lunch for when we arrived after our long drive. It was great! The bedrooms are so well appointed. The beds are super comfortable - definitely not the typical ski rental. The basement is set up to really enjoy. The Arcade game was the best...our kids know nothing about Pac-Man, Galaga or Pong so my husband and I finally got to win the video game tournament. Paula and Matt are great homeowners, very responsive and accommodating. We hope to get back to Sunday River and when we do we will only stay at The Maine Ski House!

Very Nice House

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 26, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
We stayed at the Maine Ski House for three days of early season skiing. Six adults and seven children. The house was perfect. Lots of room for everyone and all the little details were perfect. The house is very close to the hill (2 min drive), and you simply cannot get accommodations of this scale or quality at the hill. I have rented a number of ski chalets over the years. This is not your typical ski rental. Most have the feel of a rental. This house is very clean, cozy and extremely well appointed.

I generally do not sleep as well traveling as I do in my own bed, but the beds in this house are sooo comfortable. I slept like I do at home. Even the kids mentioned how comfortable the beds were.

Paula was also great to deal with. Quick to respond to any communication, yet leaves you your privacy during your visit.

Highly recommend. You will not be disappointed.

The house is on a wooded lot on 1 full acre of land. It is located on the edge of Barker Mountain so as you drive up our road, you can see the trails of Sunday River's 'White Heat'. At night, you can see the snowcats grooming the trails and you feel as though you are in the middle of the activity, but yet secluded as our neighborhood is very quiet. We are located in the neighborhood behind infamous Matterhorn Ski Bar, for those who are familiar with the area.

In the summer months, we typically have a constant breeze flowing through the house and it can really feel like a tree house as you look out at the tree tops off of the deck. If you do need to cool off from the heat, we are just minutes away from The Artists Covered Bridge, Screw Auger Falls or Mother Walker Falls. We highly recommend checking out these places because they are not only fun, but stunningly beautiful. We do think the most fun we've had in the summer is when we have gone Lazy River Tubing on The Androscoggin River with Bethel Outdoor Adventure. (http://www.betheloutdooradventure.com/) It is hours of relaxing old fashioned fun! You can picnic along the edge of one of the little islands. You will feel as though you've stepped back in time as there are minimal signs of modern day life for most of the ride down river.
