Located within walking distance of Sunday River's South Ridge Lodge, tucked away in Sunday River Village, our Mtn House offers convenience and comfort for your vacation. From front door to South Ridge's gondola is less than a 200 yard walk. Hitting the slopes early and meeting back home to eat lunch and warm up by the fire is not uncommon. The house has an inviting fireplace in a sunken living room with 30' cathedral style ceilings. The in-floor radiant heat provides a warm house to come home to and a toasty treat for your cold toes. Perfect for multiple families vacationing together.

Walking Distance to Chair Lift: The home offers the perfect balance of convenience and privacy to and from the slopes. A short walk less than 200 yards from the front door and your at the lift lines.

Spacious and Cozy: The 30' cathedral ceilings in the living room give a spacious feel to the house, while the 3 bedrooms provide a cozy and private atmosphere. The house is also heated by in-floor radiant heat, offering the best solution to those cold toes from a long day of hitting the slopes.

Why Matt chose Newry

The home was purchased by my father in the 80's while he worked for the paper mill in Rumford. Back then the resort only had 3 chairlifts. After 5 years, we moved to southern Maine but we couldn't part with the home. It has remained in my family since.

What makes this house unique

With the power to make you feel total relaxation, this home definitely has a certain magic to it. Its location close to the resort, yet nestled in the mountain forrest, provides privacy and convenience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I love the new beds. My friends were very impressed and loved the size of the place. We had 13 girls on Friday and 10 on Saturday and there was plenty of room. I do recall one of my friends saying she could not believe how many dishes, gadgets, etc. the kitchen contained. She had stayed at a lot of condo's in the past that were not as well stocked.

One big problem we encountered was that we lost one of the remotes! We found it on Sunday though!

I cannot tell you one thing I would change and believe my friends would agree. They continued to thank me all weekend for finding us such a great deal!

I do have a complaint about Newry and Bethel. It was like a ghost town this time of year! We went to the Phoenix and were the only ones in costumes. I think they maybe had about 10 other people there! We made it on their Facebook page and go free t-shirts though!

Thanks again! I will more than likely ask to rent it again if it's free during ski season!

Warm, clean, well equipped, spacious, close to SR

  • 5 of 5

My group of 10 had a great time at the Sunday River Mtn House over Parrothead weekend at Sunday River. Matt, the house manager, was very easy to communicate and coordinate with.

The sunken living room with beautiful fire place was perfect for relaxing after a day skiing. The house is within walking distance to the South Ridge Lodge for skiing, and The Phoenix restaurant for apres-ski/nightlife. The kitchen had everything we could need for the weekend. On Saturday night we picked a movie from the house's selection and enjoyed a movie while lounging by the fire. We used the Bose 321 system all weekend while either watching movies or listening to music(there's an aux plug for smartphones, etc).

Terrific stay, we hope to return next year.

MTN House was wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Top notch and personal customer service. The house was much more than the pictures imply. A giant stone fireplace which warms the whole house thoroughly. Bose sound system for musical enjoyment. Slept ten comfortably. Pool table in basement, close proximity to ski area. And even a washer/dryer!

All in all I could not have hoped to find a better rental for a group of ten, we were all thrilled with the house and with the price. I would recommend this rental to anyone, and I mean that sincerely.

Enjoy your four seasons adventures at MTN House!!!!

Fabulous get-a-way at The Mountain House!

  • 5 of 5

I would absolutely recommend a vacation at the Mountain House! My family and I have vacationed there a couple times now and I have to say that the rental was truly a "home" for us. Yes, the beds were hospital made, and the place was immaculate, but we could probably have found this at other rentals on Sunday River. What truly separated the Mountain House from any other was the warm sense of home we have felt upon each stay. This home is furnished but not too much, with plenty of storage for our gear and stuff. The property manager (can't quite remember his name) has been totally professional, but yet attune to our specific needs and very flexible. The fireplace is stunning, and the views of the trails a real treat (especially when the groomers are going). We even caught a fireworks show the last time we were there. I also enjoyed the radiant heated floors on my ski-frozen toes.

Over all we would recommend this rental to anyone looking for a fabulous Sunday River get-away without the cold, "rental" feel of some places (and for a lot less money too!) Two thumbs up!

Located in the beautiful mountains of western Maine at the base of Sunday River's extensive ski resort, the surrounding area is full of year round recreation and fun. Enjoy some of the best skiing in the east on Sunday River's 8 peak mountain. But it doesn't end when the snow melts. Enjoy all the beauty the area has to offer with scenic hikes, swimming, mountain biking and golf during the spring, summer and fall. Don't forget the spectacular leaf peeping the mountains offer. Bethel is home to Mollyockett day, a fantastic summer festival that is fun for the whole family. Come escape and enjoy the Bethel area anytime of year.
