Year round this is a wonderful place to stay. Large groups will appreciate the ease with which this house accommodates them. Altogether there are 6 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, 2 kitchens and 2 living room/ dining areas. This includes a 4 BR, 2 1/2 bath unit that sleeps 15, and a 2BR, 1 bath unit that can sleep 8. The outdoor hot tub is a an ideal way to relax. Or cozy up to the wood stove. Don't worry about bringing along sundries, they're there. Our goal is to make your stay convenient and enjoyable. At Nordic Knoll we enjoy views of the ski slopes and golf course at Sunday River, And we'll gladly help you out with suggestions for x-c skiing, snow shoeing, biking, paddling, hiking, antiquing, fishing, golf, places to eat and shop, all nearby.
A lot of us have been going on ski trips for the past 5 years, and this was the best place we have stayed at hands down. It was like walking into my parents house. Everything was set up for us, fires were all warmed up and even some brownies waiting. Linens, towels, soap. Everything you need but food!
Do not be deceived by the photos, this place is huge. There were a good number of us, and I barely saw some people as there is a huge apt. downstairs as well. I look forward to next year as this is the place for us for a long time! Nancy is a pleasure to work with, and all in all, this was one of the best experiances I have had with renting a house.
Thanks again, we will be back next year!
We had a great experience at this rental. It was spotless, cozy, and light filled even though we rented just the downstairs. Bedrooms and bathrooms were just as described, there was a wonderful and easy to use stove, and lots of extras were provided (E.g., board games,extra towels, listing of best restaurants in town, etc.). From the freshly baked brownies waiting for us on arrival to the little sticky notes providing you explicit instructions on how to use the fireplace, oven, etc, to the personalized greeting note, this truly felt like staying as a welcome guest at someone's home. Only catch is it's a bit far from town (20 min drive through backroads) but proximity to the mountain (10 min drive) made up for it.
We have been there twice already, and really like the house! We come with a big party and enjoy the wood fire, the hot tub, the brownies left by the owner as welcome, the proximity to the slopes and the space! I would absolutely make plan to stay there again when we come back to Sunday River!
Staying at Nordic Knoll was an absolute pleasure. To start, Nancy was incredibly accommodating throughout the process of renting the home. I originally secured the whole home, then was having trouble getting 20 people so I downgraded to the just the upstairs, then ended up getting the interest and moving back to the entire home. Nancy was incredibly understanding the entire time and helped me through the process.
On to the actual home: it is beautiful, perfect for a ski retreat. A mere 5-10 minute drive over to the Sunday River mountain, and you can see the mountain from the porch. The woodstove kept the house nice and warm, and the hot tub was great to relax in when my muscles were aching after the mountain. We enjoyed our nights playing Apples to Apples, while lounging watching TV, filtering in and out of the hot tub, and cooking up feasts. Also, we came in 6 cars and had parking available for all of the cars.
We had some issues with the hot tub while we there (our fault) but we gave Nancy a call and before we knew it she was out there fixing it, and it was ready by the next evening after hitting the slopes.
We had a phenomenal time and plan on being back in the future.
What a great spot to stay for a ski trip. Nordic Knoll is close to Sunday River and also a short ride into Bethel Village. The Matterhorn Pub is even closer making apres ski that much more fun. We found the owners to be very accomodating as we had last minute changes to our reservation that were handled with no problems. We had overnight snow during our stay and were plowed out before we left for the mountain in the morning. The big pan of brownies that greet you upon arrival was also a very nice touch. We had 11 guys, everybody had a bed, and plenty of room to lounge around. We will be back!
This is a great house and it's located close to the mountain. We stayed in the upper section of the house for 3 nights with 15 people and we had plenty of space. The house is well equipped, including a nice grill on the deck, a wood stove, hot tub, flat screen tv, laundry, fully stocked kitchen (minus the food of course), and much newer furniture than what is shown in the photos. I would recommend this place to anyone staying in the Sunday River area. We had a great time, thank you Nancy!
