Construction Completion Details: Interior Finish Details: Each bedroom has custom made/designed bedding and window treatments. All of the furniture was purchased either from specialty retailers and craftsmen or in High Point, North Carolina -- the furniture capital of the USA. 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!

Our homes are geared to facilitating an unforgettable vacation experience for large family groups. They are uniquely designed to provide ample space for everyone to gather, cook, dine, etc. as well as a private space for each family that they can retreat to.

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!
Beautiful and elegant!
Sophia was wonderful to work with and we look forward to our next stay to celebrate our anniversary in 5 yrs!! The house was absolutely beautiful, the view was spectacular and the amenities of the house are wonderful!! We just wish we stayed longer then 4 days to enjoy everything more!
Sophia and everyone at Ski-Esta are so friendly and helpful. The home is incredibly beautiful and the views are amazing! I would recommend this home to anyone and will be back again.
Dixon/Brittany Family Reunion
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.
DREAM WEDDING VENUE AND FAMILY GETAWAY
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!
DREAM WEDDING VENUE AND FAMILY GETAWAY
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!
