About Aqeel and Michelle Salim

We first fell in love with the Sunday River area of Maine in 2011 during a family ski trip. When we had a chance to come back the following year in late summer for some hiking and were amazed at how much Maine had to offer. This year we decided that Western Maine would be a wonderful place to bring our young son so that he would have a chance to experience the amazing array of outdoor activities that the area we had to offer. We hope you will enjoy our cabin as much as we do!

Aqeel and Michelle Salim purchased this chalet in 2015

Why Aqeel and Michelle Salim chose Western Maine

This Chalet offered the best of both worlds. Being less than 20 minutes away from Sunday River ensured that world class skiing was always close by. And by being so close to the water we would have a chance to kayak and fish as much as we wanted. We feel extremely lucky to have found this home.

What makes this chalet unique

Being so close to North Pond, our guests can walk out of the home and be on the water in mere minutes. There are also amazing hiking trails waiting to be explored. During winter months, a short car ride and you are at the base of the best ski resort on the east coast, Sunday River. After a day filled with fun, the fire pit and hot tub outside welcome you to sit, relax, and plan the next days adventures.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the openness of the living room! Tons of space for us to be comfortable all together. But enough space to have your own privacy if needed. Beds were wicked comfy and we never ran out of activities to do. Thank you so very much for your generous hospitality. Your home made us feel like we were at home and very comfortable. It is even more beautiful than the pictures online. Thank you again!

We were so happy when we stepped into this home. It was incredibly clean and had everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable with top notch pillows and bedding. We thoroughly enjoyed our time. We will definitely be staying here again.

Owner's Response: We are so happy your group had a great time. It has been a wonderful ski season thus far and it's only going to get better. Having soft, warm beds and a comfy place to kick up your feet after a day on the slopes is exactly what we strive to provide for all our guests. Looking forward to having you all back out soon!

Fabulous Vacation Home with perfect location for skiing!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better vacation home for our family of 5. The home is in immaculate condition with well stocked kitchens (two full kitchens), comfortable family gathering spaces-game room with tv and large family room- and extremely comfortable beds and pillows. The hot tub is large and well maintained.

We enjoyed the close proximity to Sunday River Ski Resort and the quaint town of Bethel, Maine.

We loved the fun variety of dining and local establishments. Some of our favorites were The Local Hub, The Milllhill Inn, The Suds Pub, The Good Food Store, and The Matterhorn Ski Bar.

Aqueel and Michelle are wonderful hosts and very accessible to ask for suggestions and help.

We give this Vacation Home the highest of recommendations!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your glowing review, Sue! We are so glad you and your family enjoyed the chalet, and the snow looked incredible!!! Great recommendations for food--we like to try out a new place each time we are there and haven't tried all of those, so we have some exploring to do when we are up there. We are glad you all enjoyed the beds and pillows, as we have made comfort a priority in our chalet with memory foam mattress toppers on all beds! We are looking forward to having you all back soon!

Fun had by all!

  • 5 of 5

My brother's family and my family stayed at this wonderful chalet in the woods over Christmas. It was a perfect holiday getaway complete with beautiful Christmas tree and decorations. There was plenty of room for the 2 families, and we made use of the game room, hot tub and firepit for entertainment, and appreciated the fully stocked kitchen and ample storage space for all of our ski gear. One day we trekked through the snow to explore the beauty of the pond. Sunday River was only 15-20 minutes away. We all were wishing that we had more time there, because there is no shortage of things to do either at the house or in the area. thanks so much for letting us stay at your wonderful place and for checking in both before and after our stay to make sure everything went smoothly. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for comfort, fun and convenience! We will definitely be back!!!

Owner's Response: It was our pleasure to host you and your family for Christmas, Heidi! It sounds like you all had the right idea about checking out the beauty in the area. It truly is the perfect place to explore, ski/snowboard, and relax! We love that you all took advantage of family time with the indoor activities, too--playing games, Wii, watching movies, and enjoying the hot tub are excellent ways to make memories. We are looking forward to having you all back soon! Aqeel and Michelle

Great for extended family holidays!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great Thanksgiving weekend at this chalet in Bryant Pond! It was perfect for our extended family group of 11! It was spacious enough that we all felt we had plenty of privacy even with such a large group! It was a great way to spend the holiday together. The two kitchens were a big plus while preparing Thanksgiving dinner, and were stocked with everything that we needed. The big kids spent a lot of time in the game room enjoying foosball and Wii, and the adults enjoyed soaking in the hot tub! The baby gates were helpful with our 17 month old and overall it is a very baby friendly home. We did some shopping in the cute town of Bethel, but mostly just enjoyed relaxing at the chalet. The owners were wonderful with communication and made sure that we knew that they were available if there was anything we needed! We would love to go back!

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving at the chalet, Kristin, and as you mentioned, the 2 kitchens certainly come in handy with holiday cooking! We have the baby gate and some infant/toddler-deterents throughout the home for our own little one, so glad it was helpful for yours, as well. We would love to have you and your family back soon!

We will definitely be coming back.

  • 5 of 5

Aqeel and Michelle were fantastic hosts. The place was amazing and we def plan on going back again. I strongly recommend taking advantage of Bucks Ledge a short hike away for some fantastic views. I honestly don't have a single complaint except that we can't go back soon enough.

Like home....but better

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in probably a dozen rentals over the years and not one came close to the amazing experience we had here. It was like staying in a wonderful friend's home-- the attention to detail, furnishings, sheets and towels. Just first rate. It was the perfect spot for family to spread out and come together at the same time. We enjoyed every bit of it-- the hot tub, foosball-- we loved every minute. Maybe some day we will return!

We take pride in making the cabin feel like a home away from home and we know that it's the tiny touches that can make all the difference. We can't wait to have you back in the near future. Take care and have a wonderful holiday season! Aqeel and Michelle.
