About Chris

My husband and I fell in love with this beautiful log home as soon as we saw it . It was November and it was snowing. The house was warm and inviting with lovely views looking out every window of the snow settling on the trees that surround the house.We were hooked!

The amazing log construction that's visible inside and out with a stone fire place made from a local quarry provide a very special setting for gatherings with family and friends. This has been a fantastic retreat for our family of 5 and provides endless fun activities all year round!

Fabulous Maine getaway

  • 5 of 5

The property is easy to get to, off the main road, close to area ski resorts. It is totally private. The home is beautifully decorated. The living room with wood stove was so cozy, warm and appealing. We kept the stove on just for the ambiance; there's nothing like a crackling fire and wood was plentifully provided. The kitchen is beautifully equiped; the bedrooms extremely comfortable; there was satellite TV, a hot tub, wireless Internet, lots of games, movies, books. The night sky from the deck of this lovely A frame was awash in stars that cannot ever be seen from the city. The mountains were brilliant with fall colors. This was truly a perfect getaway weekend, close to the Fryeburg Fair. We hope to return in the winter for another delightful stay.

Beautiful retreat

  • 5 of 5

I spent the week here with My husband, my 12 year old daughter and two small dogs. We all had an amazing time. We spent a week at the Chalet and it was everything we hoped it would be. It truly felt like home for the entire week. The Chalet was very secluded and quiet. It was within a half an hour to an hour of many restaurants and recreational activities. We went horseback trail riding which was only 12 minutes from the house. Our dogs loved it as well. They wanted to spend all of their time outside and it was safe for them to roam around. Chris was really amazing, she got back to me within hours anytime I needed a response regarding our stay, I hope we can make this a yearly ritual. It was the perfect home away from home for the week. The Area is great also. The hot tub was really nice also

Relaxing Stay in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the chalet! Chris is very responsive to e-mails. Our dog loved hanging out on the deck, and it was great that the house had gates to secure the deck. Maine in July is very buggy, but there we were not bothered at all by bugs when we were on the deck.

Chris provided great tips for activities in the area, and we had a nice walk to a nearby lake to go swimming in the mornings. Bethel and Sunday River are convenient from the house.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just as advertised and the owner was a pleasure to deal with. The property is very private and the house is well-stocked. Basement games were perfect to fill the time between outings. We weren't traveling with a pet this trip, but I am always happy to find pet-friendly options.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house right near Sunday River. Our family is a family of four (with two teens) and we rented it along with another family of four--same aged kids. The house is spacious enough for that size group, and the kids loved being in the loft together. The hot tub was a big hit and so was the ping pong table. This house certainly has all the basics you'd expect plus some really nice features (hot tub, wood burning stove, views) but most importantly the owner, Chris, is so nice and communicative. We got lost getting there and I called her and she stayed with me on the phone to make sure we got there. While we were there I had a few questions and she was a text or call away, making sure our stay was wonderful. She's got great ideas on what to do locally and once you reserve, she will send you an email chock o' block with links to explore. It's a great house, a short drive from Sunday River and the host is wonderful :)
