NEWRY, Maine — In times of economic and real estate downturn, Sunday River, a destination resort located minutes from picturesque Bethel Village in western Maine’s Mahoosuc Mountains, is experiencing anything but. Thanks in part to new ownership by Boyne Resorts and nearly $19 million in capital investments, Sunday River is celebrating its highest real estate dollar volume in sales closed in a single month.

“The month of October was unlike anything that we have seen after a busy fall selling season,” said Mark Hall, Director of Development for Sunday River. “It’s apparent that Boyne’s commitment to the resort and the new vision of the resort’s future are resonating with our guests. With our current pending sales, Sunday River is on track to have its most successful year ever.”

This past spring, a new vision was unveiled that provides the framework for planning the future of Sunday River. Each season, guests will experience change, whether it is the new Chondola, a more integrated hiking and biking trail system, new menus, additional activities, or new resort amenities and properties. Sunday River continues to evolve into a premier destination resort and this winter season, guests will witness the nearly $19 million in capital investments.

Spread nearly three miles wide from end to end, the resort itself offers plentiful on-mountain options. Interested buyers can choose from over 700 resort condominiums ranging from studio units to four-bedroom town homes, all offering ski-in, ski-out access.

Additionally, Sunday River includes two Grand Resort Hotels, combining the convenience of slopeside locations with the amenities and comforts of full-service hotels. Both properties offer quartershare options with access to destination vacation networks.

Located on the resort and in the surrounding area, premier developments offer potential owners the opportunity to build their dream vacation home. There is a location to suit your mountain lifestyle ??“ from Tempest Ridge offering luxurious 3-4 bedroom slopeside homes and The Colony with unique resort privileges to The Peaks and Peaks Village located just off the mountain access road and featuring unrivaled views.

“What continues to help Sunday River succeed is the perception of value to the guest,” said Hall. “People expect more out of their second home regardless of which season they spend the most time at it and Sunday River’s new vision clearly outlines that this is only the start. Sunday River is without a doubt an exciting place to be right now.”
