2014 SUMMER WEEKS - BOAT, FISH AND SWIM SONGO POND

Bethel House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 14

This 5 bedroom home was built in 2000. The inside is clean, spacious, and comfortable. The kitchen is very big. For additional photos, send me an email!

There are 36 acres of property to roam, with 3200 feet of water frontage. There is vegetation (trees and blueberry bushes) right up to the waters edge, with a nice dock area. The house and the waterfront are on different sides of Songo Pond Road. Behind the house, there are some rugged trails and logging roads to roam around on. The logging roads were last used in 1998, so there are some young trees filling some of the walkways. The White Mountain National Forest is just to the south.

Suitability:
  • pets considered
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Very convenient and spacious. We had 10 people stay and there was plenty of room without feeling crowded. Owner communication was excellent. Lots of amenities and convenient to Bethel.If we're ever in need in the area again I would definitely come back.

We had 11 people stay here and there was still plenty of room. The location is surprisingly quiet and peaceful. It is also centrally located to a lot of activities in Bethel or points south like Bridgton, Harrison, or Norway.
We had 6 children ranging in age from 2-16 and they all had a great time. Jim, the owner, is very helpful. Great bike loop from the house and up RT 35 to Paradise Drive. Awesome views of NH and Maine mts.! We would definitely stay again!!!
Owner's Response: Doug,
Thanks for coming - It was a pleasure having your family at the house, and we hope to see you again next year!

We loved it

12 of us stayed at this home. Everyone loved it.
We had a toddler, 2 pre teens, 3 teenagers and the rest were adults. There was enough room for all of us. The beds upstairs were very comfortable. The beds in the 2 bedrooms downstairs were not good...that was my only complaint.
The location was great, however the GPS did not work in the area. Make sure you print out the directions. We did so much in the area and never had enough time to use the pond.
We loved Sunday River, lots to do even in the summer time.
You must visit Step Falls not too far from Sunday River, absolutely beautiful falls.
Will I rent this place again? You better believe I would.

Whenever I had a question, the owners were a phone call away.

Thank you for letting us use your home.

Again, we all loved it.

Owner's Response: Diana,
It was great having your family in the summer of 2012... You'll be glad to know, the beds in the downstairs bedrooms have been upgraded... new mattresses, and we also added a king size bed upstairs! We have added a new flat screen TV, as well!

We hope you would consider coming back to visit in future years!

Place was perfect; just as described. Owner was very friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed many of the summer activities such as grilling, swimming across the road at the private dock, and sitting by a fire. There is plenty of parking and lawn space. I would recommend this place to anybody. I could see this place as a great place to rent out during the winter time as well.
Owner's Response: Pete,
Thanks for the kind words! I was glad you and your friends were able to have a good time relaxing by the fire and on the pond. You were all very respectful of the home, and left it in great condition. Thanks again, and hope to see you all back at the Songo Pond house in the future,

Great Vacation

We have stayed at this house two summers in a row. The location is perfect for everything we want to do on a Maine vacation. The Pond is wonderful for swimming and canoeing. The seaside is a short drive as well as the mountains. Plenty of outlet shopping for rainy days! We have kids ranging in age from 10-16 and thay all love it.

Not only is the house located on a beautiful pond, with abundant wildlife, fishing, and great swimming... but there are area outfitters offering canoeing, fly fishing, mountain biking, horseback riding, and more. There is a movie theater, bowling lanes, mini-golf, water slides, climbing gym, and 3 floors of laser tag! Pack up the car and go Moose-watching, visit some of the areas unique swimming holes, drive to the top of Mount Washington.

Bethel is located about 65 miles from Portland, ME and some of the most beautiful beaches along the Maine coast. Just North of Portland is Freeport, ME, home of the original L.L. Bean store, open 24 hours. The White Mountain National Forest is only a few miles from Bethel, and the house is approximately 50 miles east of North Conway, NH... a mountain village with abundant tax free outlet shopping!

So, there is a lot to do and see in the area.
