About Wendy or Gary Polonski

Gary and Wendy Polonski lived, worked and raised their two daughters in Massachusetts while spending lots of time skiing and hiking at Sunday River. When the girls went to college, they relocated permanently to their second home on Powder Ridge. Gary is a trained artist (painting and sculpture) and the Artist's Studio was built for him to paint/sculpt and display his works. While along the way, they discovered a love for sharing their incredibly property with others by hosting guests through homeaway.

Wendy or Gary Polonski purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Wendy or Gary Polonski chose Bethel - Sunday River area

The Polonski Family has been coming to Sunday River since 1995. The area grew to be an all year round destination for them and the idea for moving permanently was born. The land on which the main home and studio are located was purchased, and the dream became a reality. In July 2008, Gary and Wendy sold their home in Hingham, MA and made the final move.

What makes this apartment unique

The Artist's Studio is an amazing location only 1 mile from Sunday River Resort. While located close to everything outdoors, it maintains privacy, peacefulness and incredible beauty. Guests can bring their dogs and feel completely at ease since the property is located 1000 feet down and away from the closest rural main road. In the Spring Summer and Fall, guests can feel free to use the large deck/famer's porch of the main home for lounging in the sun, outdoor dining and barbequeing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

FROM THE GUESTBOOK: "Thanks for a fantastic place to spend an early season ski weekend. You are amazing & thoughtful hosts, Wendy & Gary and we appreciated all the small touches that made this cabin special. The woodstove makes all the difference. Thanks for your hospitality!"

Great space and amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

We were coming to Sunday River with 2 other families and all staying between their Artists Cabin and this Studio. When we found our family was coming up a day earlier, we were thrilled to find the studio was available for our family. Gary and Wendy were incredible prompt with their responses and a pleasure to work with in reservations. Upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised by the charm of the space and their hospitality with a lovely welcome basket. Waking up in the morning to look out at Sunday River slopes was breathtaking!

We had a chance to meet Wendy and she was a terrific lady. They made it very easy for everything in our stay and as the rest of our guests arrived and the older kids moved into the studio and parents into the cabin, it was a terrific setup. Both Gary and Wendy were a big help and available as needed. We would highly recommend this space to others who are looking for a one room open space style rental. It was clean and quite comforting. The only recommendation we would have would be better lighting for those arriving at night. Although they have a sign on the main road, we missed the driveway in the dark and it was hard to locate. Once you find the driveway, it's very clear though. Wendy and Gary, thanks so very much for sharing your lovely studio with us!

Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

This vacation spot is a must! We had a wonderful time in the Artist's Studio with our dog Tanner. The view was gorgeous from just about everywhere in the studio. The fireplace kept us nice and toasty for when we got back from skiing or walking through the trails. We are definitely coming back!

The Sunday River/Bethel/Newry area is one of the most beautiful and versatile outdoor adventure destinations in the Northeast. As a winter wonderland, you can enjoy downhill and cross country skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, tubing, ice skating, snowmobiling, ziplining, and even dog sled rides in the same general location. Take a break from the outdoors with shopping and dining in charming downtown Bethel or visit nearby North Conway, NH. During the Fall season, 'leaf peepers' can ride the chair lift up to the top of Sunday River Resort and experience nature's amazing beauty. In addition to many local craft fairs, you can attend the annual National Wife Carrying Championship on Columbus Day Weekend. Spring and Summer add golfing at Sunday River Golf Club and the Bethel Inn Country Club, hiking, biking, camping, backpacking, swimming, wildlife observation, motorcycling, and mountain biking. The rustic beauty of this area has something to offer for everyone!

If you are coming for one of the many beautiful mountain weddings, extend your stay longer and make it a vacation. Since you can bring your dog, you don't have to feel guilty about kenneling your favorite furry friend.
