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 Newry
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.

Location, Location, Location, Hospitality, Hospitality, Hospitality!
Gary and Wendy have this down pat, and it shows in the owners' efforts -- which were very much appreciated by our family and furry friends. It is hard to leave such a cozy, peaceful and nature-stunning spot.
From the scrumptious m&m cookies to the ready-to-light fire int he wood stove to the garage parking (no need to dust snow off the car) to the comfortable bed and not to mention stunning vistas... I feel hard pressed to depart back to the grind of everyday life.
Thank you for opening the Artist's Studio to us for some well-needed enjoyment!

Perfect Ski/Winter Getaway
Our family of 4 and our Yellow Lab had a wonderful ski vacation over Thanksgiving break. The Studio was plenty big for a 3-night stay and had everything you need. The wood fireplace provided extra cozy accommodations along with a movie after a frigid day of skiing. The Studio is in a prime location minutes overlooking Sunday River, minutes from Bethel, and we'd highly recommend to anyone looking for Sunday River vacation.
Cozy Weekend Retreat
We recently stayed at the Artist’s Studio for a quick ski weekend getaway. The studio was clean, comfortable and the perfect size for three people and a lab. The views of Sunday River were spectacular and we were able to watch the fireworks from the comfort of the studio with an unobstructed view. Wendy and Gary were incredibly gracious hosts who provided us additional information about the area that was well suited for our energetic lab. We would definitely stay again as it is the perfect spot for a weekend ski getaway.
Great place, great location
Loved our stay the Artist’s studio. Great view of the mountain. Would definitely come back again.
We are delighted you enjoyed your stay! Thanks so much for leaving the studio so clean and please come back anytime!
Very nice studio apartment close to skiing and other activities in the area
We really enjoyed our stay at the studio. It was as described and very clean. We have stayed in other places nearby in the past and this has been the best so far. Bonus was that we could bring our dog and he loved it as well. Definitely a place we recommend and would come back to. Thank you Wendy and Gary.
It was so nice meeting you both and your cool pup! So glad the birthday trip worked out so well for you with great ski conditions. Please do come back anytime!!
Loved this unique studio getaway.
This was our first time at the Artist's Studio. My husband, two daughters and I loved it. We loved that it was our own private place. It was so warm and cozy. A great place to relax and feel at home. The view was stunning and peaceful!! Wendy and Gary are wonderful host and put all the right touches into this place. It was great to have a garage to unload our luggage. One of my main concerns is cleanliness and this place topped my expectations. Everything was so clean and the bed and couches were so comfortable. The welcoming card and homemade muffins waiting for us were so nice!! I loved that we were only 7 minutes away from the mountain so I could go back and let the dog out. We had the perfect ski weather and conditions. I would highly recommend this place to stay and we would definitely like to come back.
Susan, we truly enjoyed hosting you and your family! You were such terrific and thoughtful guests!! Please come back soon!
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.
