Private location right on the banks of a mountain stream, yet close to everything, a perfect Bethel Maine vaction rental. The River House is newly remodeled with all the amenities of a home. It features a great room with native pine floors, walls and ceiling. The deck is almost over the stream and has a grill and seating area. The stream has wonderful small pools the size of a large hot tub to relax in on hot summer days. The maple kitchen is fully equipped and ready for meal preparation. There is a queen bedroom, a double bedroom, both with antique dressers and a laddered loft that kids delight in. It is like a private tree house indoors. The cabin is nicely furnished and comes ready for use with all linens provided for the two bedrooms and bath. Please bring sleeping bags for the loft. The noise of the babbling water in the stream will lull you to sleep at night. There is a paddle fan in both the living room and the master bedroom however it stays quite cool next to the stream.
The surrounding area: Bethel Village is located in the western lakes and mountain region of Maine. The mighty Androscoggin River weaves its way through the fertile valley offering beautiful scenery throughout the year. Each season brings spectacular views up and down the river to the Mahoosuc Mountain Range. We are only a short 1/2 hour drive to Mount Washington and the Presidential Mountains of New Hampshire. The surrounding area is dotted with lakes and streams and there are many waterfalls, swimming holes and covered bridges in the immediate area.

Summer activities include; golf, swimming, boating, canoeing, kayaking, rafting, antiqueing, bird watching, rock hounding, hiking, biking, horse back riding and fishing.There is a cinema and adventure park with a water slide, mini golf and a fun laser tag. In the fall there is also excellant foliage to add to the summer activities.

The destination ski resort at Sunday River is just outside the village and there is also the smaller family oriented Mount Abram about a 15 min drive to the south.
What a week! The River House was great! Horseback riding, canoeing The Androscoggin and watching my dog swimming at Howard Pond were a few of the things we did during our stay here. We loved the fire pit every nite. Your hospitality is much appreciated. We'll be back. July 03'
Just steps away from our deck you will find a babbling mountain stream with deep pools to relax in on hot summer days. Up the street only a half mile is pristine Howard Pond with a lovely town beach area that is yours to enjoy. At the lower end of the road is a state boat launch to the Androscoggin River which is an as yet undiscovered canoe and kayakers paradise, wild enough that you will see bald eagles, moose and lots of other wildlife. Fishing is superb in the area and there is hiking in the Mahoosucs as well as the nearby White Mountains. Golf, antiqueing, and rock hounding are just a few things to do in the area around the quintessential village of Bethel Maine.
