The Sky Suite

This is Magic Pond’s adaptable accommodation for guests who require exceptional amounts of overhead natural light and wide open space in which to both live and work. The Sky Suite is also available for larger guest parties needing sleeping and gathering space beyond their combined reservation of The Pond and The Woods Suites (which we request large parties to first fill before overflowing into The Sky). Read more…

The Sky is located on the second floor of the Studio Cottage and features a second story deck looking out onto a wide expanse of pond, fields and woods, Accessible only by exterior spiral stairs, The Sky was originally designed as the owner’s studio and, thus, is equipped with a double hot plate and toaster oven in lieu of a standard stove. Otherwise, the kitchen is fully functional with a mid-sized refrigerator and all the amenities found in the other suites. The Sky Suite is furnished with a high-quality pull-out queen-sized sofa bed, two easy chairs and a large dining table. The bathroom includes an over-sized seated shower. The space will also easily accommodate a few extra guests with sleeping bags for special, short-term weekend workshops.

In addition, there are numerous work surfaces (which guests are asked to protect with their own tarps, along with the floors, if liquid or other damaging materials are to be used in the space). Additionally, we request that the the owner’s personal storage areas partitioned off within the Sky Suite be respected. Because of the very tall ceilings and large bank of windows, in extreme sub-zero temperatures, those unaccustomed to Maine winters (where we generally accept sweaters as a must) could find The Sky Suite to be less comfortable than The Pond or Woods Suites given the air movements through such a large space.
