Beautiful Sunday River Maine! Get ready for the vacation of your life!
Perched high upon the beautiful Sunday River... Maine’s Powder Ridge, The Heights provides you with an extraordinary view of the majestic peaks, which comprise the Mahoosuc Mountain range and the valley beyond. Its construction just completed, The Heights is a spectacular, 7500 square foot, contemporary home with 2000 square feet of glass frontage, privately situated on five acres of woodland to maximize serenity and seclusion.
The Heights offers ten bedrooms, including six master king suites (four of which have their own private balconies) with luxury linens, a Queen bedroom, three bunk rooms, ten and a half bathrooms, two towering stone fireplaces in the vaulted living rooms, two gas fireplaces, two eight-man hot tubs (for your viewing of the fireworks at Sunday River on Saturday nights), an office complete with Computer and high speed wireless Internet access.
From Memorial Day through the end of September, we only rent the house as a whole, not divided units. This is the period of time that the pool is available as well.
During the late Fall, Winter and early Spring we can rent the units separately. The descriptions and rentals of both the Eagle's Nest and the Bobcat's Den can also be found on Homeaway.
Added Details:: The Heights is two separate units... The Eagle's Nest (HA Property ID # 101882) and The Bobcat's Den (HA Property ID #100360), which can be rented as a complete entity or independently. Its unique award-winning floor plan designed by KLM, allows for free flowing multi-level living as one full unit or two separate locked-off units with completely private entrances.
The units are completely different, yet uniquely spectacular and fully soundproofed. The goal of this design is to provide luxurious accommodations for small corporate retreats or for large family get-aways. Beautifully appointed with classy, comfortable furniture, we are targeting groups of families and executives.

A great way to see western Maine is by throwing on a pair of hiking boots and just walking out the front door. One of the best spots is Grafton Notch State Park, located along the Maine-New Hampshire border, just minutes away from The Heights. The most famous footpath in the world, the Appalachian Trail, passes through the park on the way to its finish in Mt. Katahdin. Throughout the park you will see waterfalls, caves, and incredible mountain vistas.
