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 Woodstock

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.

Great place!!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this place for my family trip with the kids and we had an amazing time. Aqeel was very kind and professional and answered all of my questions. He gave me a list of fun things to do in the area and always answered my calls or e mails immediately. The place is cozy and very clean. We bought wood from rich the next door neighbor and he was such a friendly guy and was always available for us when we called him. I give this place five stars and I appreciate the hospitality we were shown by Aqeel and his wife Michelle. Thank you for allowing my family to make fun memories!

Owner's Response: Kristin, it was a pleasure having you all stay with us. Rich said he had a great time interacting with your group and that he'd love to have you come kayaking with him again. It was great speaking with you, it sounds like you all had a wonderful time. We can't wait to host you all again. Until next time, thank you! Aqeel and Michelle

Awesome stay, last minute rescue!

  • 5 of 5

We are so thankful that we were able to stay at Aqeel and Michelles wonderful cabin. Our previous reservations fell through last minute and Aqeel was able to have us comfortably settled in within a few hours of us calling him. He called after we arrived to check in and make sure we had found everything we needed, he also suggested a few dinner options since we hadnt had time to get groceries. The lobster mac n cheese at Rooster’s was amazing! The hot tub was clean and hot and a wonderful way to relax after our hectic first day. We took the kayaks out despite the cool weather and had a blast, although we didn’t catch any fish. We enjoyed our stay a lot and are hoping to come back again for an extended stay this next time. Thank you again for saving our trip!

Owner's Response: Hi Tiffany, We were so glad we were able to help you and your group with your vacation plans! It sounds like everyone had a great time with good food and kayaking (despite not catching a fish)! We hope you all will stay again soon (perhaps for the beautiful fall foliage in October or skiing/snowboarding--we should have snow on Mt Abram and at Sunday River by mid-November!)! Aqeel and Michelle

Owner's Response: Pam, it was wonderful having you and Donovan stay with us. Thank you for allowing us to share the home with you--it was great getting to speak to you and help you plan some of your outings. I'm also glad that you enjoyed Netflix on your computer during your stay! We also have spent a few nights binge-watching our favorite shows by the fire. We are looking forward to having you both back out in the future. Until next time, thanks again! Aqeel and Michelle

Perfect spot for our introduction to Maine!

  • 5 of 5

Having never visited Maine, we were looking for something that would be in the middle of attractions that we wanted to see. This rental was exactly what we needed. 4 bedrooms on 3 floors gave us a lot of room to "get away" from each other. Aqeel contacted us before we got there to make sure all was OK. Check in was on time and everything was in order. There were no surprises, which is exactly how we wanted it. The hot tub was clean and hot. We didn't end up using the grill or the firepit. The deck was nice. We spent a lot of time on it in the evenings. We heard our first loon there, which was great. There is so much to do within a half hour from the rental. Step Falls, Maine Minerals, whale rock, etc... We could have stayed another week and not ran out of things to do. Aqeel contacted us after check out too, to make sure all was good. Overall it was a great stay. I highly recommend it staying at this chalet

We would love to have you back out again in the near future. Aqeel and Michelle
