Gary and Wendy Polonski lived, worked and raised their two daughters in Massachusetts while spending lots of time skiing and hiking at Sunday River. When the girls went to college, they relocated permanently to their second home on Powder Ridge. Gary is a trained artist (painting and sculpture) and the Artist's Studio was built for him to paint/sculpt and display his works. While along the way, they discovered a love for sharing their incredibly property with others by hosting guests through homeaway.com.

Wendy or Gary Polonski purchased this apartment in 2009

The Polonski Family has been coming to Sunday River since 1995. The area grew to be an all year round destination for them and the idea for moving permanently was born. The land on which the main home and studio are located was purchased, and the dream became a reality. In July 2008, Gary and Wendy sold their home in Hingham, MA and made the final move.

The Artist's Studio is an amazing location only 1 mile from Sunday River Resort. While located close to everything outdoors, it maintains privacy, peacefulness and incredible beauty. Guests can bring their dogs and feel completely at ease since the property is located 1000 feet down and away from the closest rural main road. In the Spring Summer and Fall, guests can feel free to use the large deck/famer's porch of the main home for lounging in the sun, outdoor dining and barbequeing.

PERFECT GETAWAY AT SUNDAY RIVER

  • 5 of 5
At the risk of sounding redundant with all previous reviews, this is truly a wonderful property. Everything was perfect and as described. We seldom post reviews but this one really deserved our appreciation. Wendy and Gary are great hosts and make you feel welcomed as you enter their property. Apart from skiing at Sunday River we also went snow shoeing in Grafton Notch and Mt Will, thanks to Wendy who pointed out some of the possibilities for such activity. The Studio is located on a ridge across from Sunday River and offer the best views we ever had on a ski trip. Great location, perfect stay, we are already thinking of our next stay at the Artist's Studio.
Highly recommended

VERY PLEASED

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were delighted to find this quiet, very private and immaculately clean get-away nestled on a Maine hillside near Sunday River. The owners have anticipated everything needed on a vacation. The wood stove was burning warmly upon our arrival, and the views of Sunday River are spectacular - just like the write-up indicated. We would recommend this wonderful getaway to anyone.

GREAT COZY GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
This was a great little vacation for us. When we arrived, we were greeted by a nice fire in the stove and fresh baked muffins from our hosts, Gary and Wendy. Great folks BTW. The loft had all the amenities and then some. We arrived on the 13th and woke to 12" of fresh snow for skiing the next day. A rarity for us. Thanks again and we look forward to coming back next year.

ANOTHER PERFECT STAY

  • 5 of 5
We are reluctant to post how much we again enjoyed our stay as it appears the secret is out and it is now rather difficult to book a weekend at what remains our all-time favorite mountain cabin. Wendy and Gary could not be more gracious, the studio is perfect in size, location and decor, we devoured the home-made coffee cake and there is still nothing better than looking out onto the moon-lit mountain after a long day of skiing while snuggled up next to the wood stove. Thanks so much again for another perfect trip!

ANOTHER WONDERFUL STAY!

  • 5 of 5
This was the second year in a row that we've stayed at "The Artist's Studio" and we hope to make it an annual visit. Gary and Wendy keep everything up wonderfully and I can't stress enough how inviting the studio is. Garage parking is a definite plus when you wake up to fresh powder. The area had a power outage for a few hours while we were there, and they had us hooked up to a generator in no time. We brought our beagle again this year, and their recommended dog walker ( Donna) was as great as last year. The views of the mountain are beautiful, and skiing is excellent! Please just don't book the dates you want before we schedule ours!

COZIEST SKI CABIN EVER!

  • 5 of 5
I, my husband and our shih-tzu Ralphie had the wonderful opportunity to stay at this cozy log cabin/studio last April. It was hands-down the coziest, most comfortable property we have ever stayed in - far better than four and five star hotels. We absolutely adored the wood stove and there was something so magical about snuggling up in the living room after a long day of skiing and skiing the lights of the groomers on the slopes in the distance. We could not have asked for a better stay and are so appreciative to Wendy and Gary for sharing their home with us!

The Sunday River/Bethel/Newry area is one of the most beautiful and versatile outdoor adventure destinations in the Northeast. As a winter wonderland, you can enjoy downhill and cross country skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, tubing, ice skating, snowmobiling, ziplining, and even dog sled rides in the same general location. Take a break from the outdoors with shopping and dining in charming downtown Bethel or visit nearby North Conway, NH. During the Fall season, 'leaf peepers' can ride the chair lift up to the top of Sunday River Resort and experience nature's amazing beauty. In addition to many local craft fairs, you can attend the annual National Wife Carrying Championship on Columbus Day Weekend. Spring and Summer add golfing at Sunday River Golf Club and the Bethel Inn Country Club, hiking, biking, camping, backpacking, swimming, wildlife observation, motorcycling, and mountain biking. The rustic beauty of this area has something to offer for everyone!

If you are coming for one of the many beautiful mountain weddings, extend your stay longer and make it a vacation. Since you can bring your dog, you don't have to feel guilty about kenneling your favorite furry friend.
