Gorgeously secluded with 180-degree views of the surrounding mountains and the tranquil Sunday River valley, this four-bedroom lodge in Newry is a showcase of Western Maine's immense natural beauty. Here at the end of a 1,000-foot driveway, on a two-acre, PetSafe-fenced property that's incredibly secure for dogs, you'll experience some of the most beautiful sunsets and star-filled night skies you've ever seen, with the Sunday River fireworks visible from all levels of the house. The home is full of thoughtful decor and plush comforts, from the natural log furnishings and the moose-and-bear rugs to the original art painted by Gary Polonski, a local Maine artist who studied under John Grillo. Step inside the great room after a day spent skiing, snowshoeing, kayaking, hiking, or leaf-peeping to curl up by the 23-foot-high, stone-encased fireplace and gaze at the panoramic view of Sunday River's eight peaks through 18 custom-designed windows. Grab a warm pair of socks from the private washer/dryer and head downstairs to the family room, where a suspended big-screen TV, a wood-burning stove, a quiet desk and workspace, and walls papered in scenes of nature create a truly inviting atmosphere for watching Netflix or catching up on a bit of work. Come summertime, the wrap-around deck offers a gas grill, multiple dining tables, and both Adirondack and lounge chairs, while the firepit just below features bench seating for family evenings full of s'mores and scary stories.
Sleep soundly each night in one of the four bedrooms, all of which have been beautifully outfitted with natural wood walls and bed frames. The master suite features a hand-crafted, king-size log bed, a ceramic Jotul stove, and a private bathroom with a custom rain shower and a large, two-person jetted bathtub. The other three bedrooms - two on the main level and one on the lower level - have a custom queen bed apiece; there's also an ADA-accessible bathroom on the main level and a third bathroom downstairs.
Easily reached from Portland just 73 miles south, this home is ideal for outdoor adventures and explorations at any time of year. Sunday River Resort is four miles south, offering eight interconnected peaks, 135 trails, and 870 acres of skiable terrain. Catch a spectacular fall scene at the Sunday River Bridge less than two miles south, or spend a summer fishing, kayaking, and rafting in the Androscoggin River or teeing off at the Sunday River Golf Club five miles west. Grafton Notch State Park is only 17 miles northwest, where you'll find 12 of the most difficult - and rewarding - miles of the entire Appalachian Trail and breathtaking views of the Mahoosuc Range.
