About Herschel Collins

I started skiing at Sugarloaf in 1959. I lived in another ski house owned by dad and mom 1977 to 1979 with my 2 young sons and traveled to University of Maine Farmington to get a degree in education. Later, in 1986 , I traveled from Vermont to do a major renovation on that same ski house. I built this present home with Jim and Antonio in 1995 for my dad and his wife, Mary. We traveled from our home in Vermont every week to build the home.I bought this present ski house from my brother and sister and Dad's wife recently after the death of my father and I am now the sole owner. I love this country and the people. Jane and I enjoy the summer as much as the winter with many fun summer sports.

Herschel Collins purchased this house in 2010

Why Herschel Collins chose Carrabassett Valley

Dad and Mary and I and family have put our heart and soul into this home and I hope you will enjoy it as much.

What makes this house unique

A well built custom home with easy access to the mountain and many other fun things to do outdoors. Comfortable and easy to heat with hot water baseboard heat. There is also a Vermont Castings wood stove with a full woodshed to be used only by one experienced in wood burning. There are 3 large bedrooms and a game room downstairs with ping pong table. Great views of Sugarloaf and the Bigelow range.

Excellent Winter Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a New Years week skiing on Sugarloaf, and this house was absolutely a great place to stay. We went as a group of friends (our ages varied from 20s to 40s), but I feel this place would be excellent for a family as well. It is very warm and clean. The living and sleeping spaces are spacious, so you feel comfortable everywhere, and everything in the house works! The kitchen has everything you need for a Christmas dinner, the bathrooms are fully stocked and the water is hot, and there is a neat ski storage area downstairs. The ping pong table is another great addition. And of course, the house is very close to Sugarloaf's downhill and X-country. The mountain has an excellent (and cheap) spa and fitness center that we hopped to after skiing, and then were home within five-ten minutes after that. Herschel, the owner, provided good instructions on getting to the house (it's in an uphill community). I would advise if you have little winter driving experience and are driving a rear-wheel car that you bring some chains - the access roads get regularly plowed and sanded, but there is still ice on the road anywhere you go once you get off the highway, as it's Maine after all. We would definitely come back here the next time we ski Sugarloaf!

Notes:
The wood stove is an excellent Vermont Castings stove but its use would have to be discussed with the owner. Experienced wood burners only, please. The house is very comfortable with the central heat. The house will heat from 50 to 70 in the time it takes to unload and get settled in. The housekeeper visits one day before renter arrival and turns up the heat to 70
