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!

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

Anniversary Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to First Tracks Chalet this past weekend and had a wonderful time. The cabin was clean and fully stocked with anything imaginable; simply put it was homey. The beds were unbelievably comfortable, and there was so much space. Our group consisted to two couples and there was more than enough room for us to spread out. We were able to come together in the common areas for dining and game playing, but also were able to retreat to quiet spaces if needed. We are already planning our next visit and hoping to bring our children too as there is absolutely enough room for two families without feeling like you're on top of one another. Thank you so much for sharing your home, we will absolutely be back!

Beautiful Ski House!

  • 5 of 5

My family rented the house for a long ski weekend and we had an absolutely lovely time! The house was perfectly situated on the lake close to downtown and just a short drive from Sunday River. The hot tub and fire pit were perfect after a long day on the slopes. The house itself was very spacious and felt like a cozy log cabin in the woods. On cold nights we all gathered in the living room around the warm gas stove as we played some of the many games stocked at the house. Aqeel and Michelle were very helpful and responsive to all of our questions. It was the perfect retreat for our family and we look forward to renting again next time we are in Maine! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Hi Lindsey! Thank you so much for staying with us! It was a pleasure hosting you all. We are so glad you all were able to enjoy some quality family time in front of the fire--it's one of our favorite spots in the entire home to enjoy board games and hot cocoa (we hope you enjoyed the special National Park Edition of Monopoly!). We are looking forward to hosting your family again soon! Aqeel and Michelle

Wonderful getaway. Plenty of room and cozy at the same time.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The owners were very good at communicating from answering questions before booking through touching base after we had returned home. The house was clean and everything was accessible. Not far from Sunday River. Would definitely stay again!
