Construction Completion Details: Interior Finish Details: Each bedroom has custom made/designed bedding and window treatments.

The house features a number of custom built-ins -- two window seats, sleeping platforms, entertainment units, cabinets, mud-room seating, ski-pegs, hat/mitten/boot shelving, bay window seat, etc. The design work in the flooring in every room is outstanding and unlike anything you have every seen before. The magnificent arched timber trusses and the one of a kind 40 foot masonry fireplace are truly unique. The central staircase is mahogany with black iron balusters. There are 7 custom showers (slate, travertine, marble, granite, glass, onyx, pebbles) including a slate mosaic and copper pencil dog shower!. The kitchen will not only please your family chef but may very well earn a feature magazine spread. No expense has been spared in making this the ultimate retreat!

Guestbook comments from the manager

I certainly want to congratulate you and Walter for creating such a luxury home. Our group was reluctant to leave when Friday arrived and left with wonderful memories to share with colleagues and friends. Please accept my sincere thanks for your generous donation for our retreat. Our group is already putting together details for the annual 20th retreat to be held the last week of April or the first week in May of 2011. If you and Walter would like to consider another form of donation for rental of the home to the group for next year please let me know, they’ve already indicated SkiEsta is where they want to meet...

Spectacular House!

  • 5 of 5

For the past 2 years I've had the pleasure of using Skiesta as a venue for a couples retreat! Skiesta is truly amazing! All of the bedrooms are beautiful, each with its own comfortable bathroom, which is a huge plus! The view of the mountains and ski slopes are absolutely breath taking!

Everyone had plenty of space to 'be around' or to 'be alone'. Great amount of space in the home.

We have friends who also coordinate retreats here and they love it as well!

Dixon/Brittany Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of our six children and their spouses and 15 grand children plus two girl friends for a total of 32

The web site was very accurate in describing the house. In reality the house was nicer than the web site portrayed.

With a rather large and diverse group the property was perfect. Many different activities often took place at the same time

Besides the house our main activity took place at the ski hill which was great

I contacted the owner several times and the response was more than satisfactory

We would definitely recommend the property.

SkiEsta provided the perfect venue for our weekend wedding! Between more formal wedding events at SkiEsta where our guests all raved about the home, our close family and wedding party staying at the house were able to enjoy the amenities of the house: a ping pong table, billiards room, movie theater (or sports theater to watch the world series!), a gorgeous and perfectly heated indoor pool, sauna and steam room, and multiple outdoor hot tubs. Sophia, the owner, was very easy to work with and provided quick response times and was very helpful in answering any questions about the venue and the surrounding area. The views over Sunday River from SkiEsta are spectacular! My new husband and I hope to rent SkiEsta again in the future for an anniversary trip or family reunion. I don't see how this house could possibly disappoint! It is fabulous!

SkiEsta is the most fabulous rental property! For our wedding weekend, it served as the perfect venue for multiple wedding events and everyone who came to the property was in awe of how beautiful it was. Between more formal events of the weekend like the rehearsal dinner, the wedding itself and the survivor brunch, our close friends and immediate families enjoyed the amenities SkiEsta has to offer, including the movie room (or sports viewing room - for the World Series games!) the billiards table, the ping pong table, the beautiful indoor swimming pool warmed to the perfect temperature for swimming, and three outdoor hot tubs! The views over Sunday River and the mountains are absolutely breathtaking and SkiEsta was a dream vacation spot and wedding venue. I hope to return someday for an anniversary trip/family reunion! In addition to the home itself, Sophia, the owner of the property, is so easy to work with in terms of booking and answering any questions. We had nothing go wrong during our stay, but I have complete confidence Sophia would be available and helpful during the course of your stay if you needed any assistance with the home. What a perfect and luxurious getaway home!

The house is located across the valley from the Sunday River Ski Area -- less than a five minute drive. Make a left onto Sunday River Rd. from Route 2 at the Brew Pub, follow Sunday River Rd. to the first fork in the road -- bear right towards the covered bridge, continue along Sunday River rd to the second fork in the road -- bear right again, pass the covered bridge on your left and then make your first right onto Douglass Rd., then make your second left onto Keystone Drive, your first left onto Steamboat Drive, and then your first left onto Powder Ridge Rd. We are the first house on the right at the top of the cul de sac. At the moment, we are the only home on the cul de sac. Our property is 4.45 acres and is located next to Timber lands on one side and an empty lot on the other.

Golf: The Sunday River Area is home to two fabulous golf courses: The Sunday River Golf Club and The Bethel Inn Resort Golf Course. The Sunday River Golf Club was completed in 2005 and has won recognition as one of the best courses around: Golf Digest -- Top Ten Best New Upscale Public Courses; Travel + Leisure Golf -- Top Ten Best New Courses in the World; Golfweek -- #1 Course in Maine; GolfStyles New England -- Public Course of the Year. The Bethel Inn Golf Course is a 6,663 yard, par 72 course that was originally built in 1913 and redesigned in 1988: America's Greatest Golf Resorts magazine -- Top Ten Courses in the Northeast; Golf Digest -- 3 1/2 stars; the course is home to New England PGA Fall Festival Pro-Am and the New England Couples Tournament.

Ski: Sunday River is often referred to as the Vail of the East. Boasting 8 peaks and infinite terrain, this mountain has something for skiers of all levels: 131 trails; 8 interconnected mountain peaks (White Cap, Locke Mountain, Barker Mountain, Spruce Peak, North Peak, Aurora Peak, Oz, Jordan Bowl); 18 lifts including 4 hi-speed quads and a brand new chondola!; as a result of their advance snow making -- the 'most dependable snow in the East'; 80% of the terrain is covered by the resorts snow making equipment -- as long as the weather is cold, you can depend on Sunday River skiing to be fantastic! Sunday River is also home to 6 terrain parks and in 2008 was the mountain where the new world quarter pipe record was set by Simon Dumont -- 35 feet!! If you are just learning to ski or need a refresher, Sunday River's Perfect Turn Ski School is one of the top ski clinics in the East -- lot's of classes and one on one instruction -- guaranteed to make skiers or snow boarders out of your kids
