Ski weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time I planned a ski weekend with 7 other friends and it was absolutley amazing. I researched properties and found Jenny's retreat. At first I was a little skeptical about renting the house but when we arrived it was everything we could imagine- a large, cozy chalet with a beautiful deck, lots of room, fireplace, nice kitchen and less than 2 miles from the Sunday River! It was so relaxing and we couldn't have asked for a better place! we will definitely be back.

Give us a call for Spring & Simmer Rates and see why Jenny;s Retreat has the accomodations that will blow you away. Bob.

Pleasant Stay

  • 5 of 5

This house was great for our big group. We really liked the double kitchen. The main floor has a great open floor plan with high ceilings. Great for hanging out with a group, cooking, and eating. The house is beautiful and in a great location.

Plenty of space, great amenities, minutes from Sunday River

  • 5 of 5

This house was wonderful. There was an abundance of space, even with our capacity crowd. It was kid friendly, ideally located (although a little hard to find in the dark) and had everything we needed for a great ski weekend. It was almost a shame that we spent so much time and energy skiing that by the time we got back to the house we were all exhausted and just went to bed.

Great Comfortable Ski house for single or multifamilies!

  • 5 of 5

This house is great for one or three families. Very comfortable with lots of beds and two tv room areas, two kitchens. Very cozy and pretty views. Close to the mountain. The house is actually nicer in reality than the photos show it. The living room TV is a flat screen and there's a sound bar, whereas in the picture its an old tube TV. We really enjoyed staying here!

Great time

Our family had an excellent time. Plenty of space to spread out and relax.

Golfers will not want to miss playing a round at Sunday River Country Club.
