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 Western Maine

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The home is charming and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

We had an extended family vacation and this house was perfect. We had 11 people and there were ample beds. They were extremely comfortable.The two kitchens were nice however we primarily just used the one upstairs. Everyone enjoyed the hot tub and we had a fire in the fire pit one evening. We used the kayaks and the close proximity to the lake is great. The house is well stocked with dishes, cooking utensils and towels. It is close enough to the coast that we took a couple of day trips to Portland for lighthouses and Freeport for shopping. We also rode the Cog Train to the top of Mount Washington. Breathtaking views!! A great place to stay!

Maine getaway

  • 5 of 5

Had a great family vacation. Was able to drive 1-2 hours for a variety of different activities. Swimming holes, hikes, racetrack, strawberry picking, Santa's Village. Kayak rentals from house was a big hit and just sitting around the fire pit at night was relaxing.

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!

Fun filled family get together

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week long stay in the later part of June. The weather was mostly cooperative and the bugs weren't really all that bad except just when it was getting dark. The chalet was ideal for our family of ten with plenty of beds for the kids in the upstairs loft and three other rooms for each couple. The kayaks and the foosball table were big hits with the kids and adults. Also there was the hot tub and fire pit which we all enjoyed. North pond was a great to swim and kayak in and there were several nice places to hike. The surrounding area had some good places to eat when we didn't want to cook. Aqeel was very accommodating and even let us change the week of our reservation when a complication arose for one of our party. All in all, it was a very good week and we all highly recommend staying here.

Very accommodating and short distance to the slopes.

  • 5 of 5

Ski chalet had everything we needed for our stay. The kitchen was plenty big and there was plenty of beds for sleeping. After a day on the slopes the fire pit and hot tub were a huge bonus. Salim's were super nice and and easy to work with. I would recommend the Ski Chalet to anyone looking for a get away in Maine centered around lake or ski activities.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a kind review, Mark! We love relaxing by the fire pit making s'mores, and enjoying the hot tub after a long day on the slopes, too. We are so glad you all took advantage of it! And we agree--the distance to the slopes is just perfect. Close enough to be there quickly, but far enough away that we have a little privacy at the chalet! We were happy to have your group, and hope you will return soon!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home with two other families and it was the perfect space for all of us and just a short drive to skiing at Sunday River. The owners were fantastic and super friendly. We loved the large kitchen table which allowed our sizeable group to play games and eat together. Two kitchens were very well-stocked. Game room, hot tub and fire pit were a huge hit. We look forward to returning next year.

Owner's Response: We are delighted to hear you all had a wonderful ski getaway, Linda! We love how close our chalet is to the slopes--makes getting to/from easy and stress-free for morning skiing, lunch, and hot tubbing afterward! We are also glad the 2 kitchens came in handy. They can be quite nice when you have kids wanting their own snack areas while the other kitchen is being used for dinner/breakfast! Please come back soon!
