This is a privately owned Fairway Townhome situated on the 11th hole of the Bethel Inn and Country Club in the village of Bethel, Maine. Bethel is a quaint four season small town in Western Maine, in the heart of one of the best skiing, hiking, kayaking, and relaxing areas of New England. Condo has a beautiful view of local mountains and is within easy walking distance of the village of Bethel and of course the Bethel Inn and Country Club.
The town of Bethel: If you have any questions about the Bethel area and what it has to offer or are searching for a different sort of lodging (more bedrooms, closer to ski areas, etc.), please feel free to ask. I live in Bethel and will be glad to give you more help and insight into enjoying life here in Western Maine! We have several very good restaurants for both casual and fine dining, our own local brew pub, a well-stocked smaller grocery store plus a natural foods store with fantastic wine selections, and some very unique arts and crafts shops which are well-known. However, please remember that we are a small town and any 'big city stuff' (big box stores or first-run stage productions:) might entail a drive, but we're lucky to have all the wonderful things that make Maine 'The way Life should be'. You can also go to Bethel's thorough and informative website by our Chamber of Commerce..
More local information: For more information on the area, simply Google in Bethel, Maine and our Chamber of Commerce has a thorough website of activities in and around Bethel or please contact me if you have specific questions.
Internet and telephone : There is NO land telephone line in the unit. You will need a cell phone. The Internet service is provided by my cable provider and there is a router set up if you have a laptop.

I bought this condo to be my personal retirement home. I've lived there in the past and it's very comfortable and cozy. I enjoy sharing my 'home' with people visiting Bethel and Western Maine.
The condo is right in town and very close to many attractions around the area. The view from the back deck is just lovely and sunsets can be spectacular. It's a very comfortable and homey place, set up for extended stays.
We were in Bethel for a wedding over Columbus Day weekend and we lucked out booking this Condo! It is right in town Bethel- a close walk to food, shopping and bars in the charming, small downtown. The Bethel Inn is gorgeous and this condo is RIGHT ON the golf course!! The condo itself was sparkling clean and had everything we needed. The beds were cozy and we slept well! Rosemary greeted us and checked to be sure everything was to our satisfaction - it was beyond our expectation. What a great experience- we recommend the condo to anyone- great value with a friendly, smooth, hassle free stay!
Wow, we have definitely discovered our new "home away from home". I visited with my husband and two children (ages 7 and 4) during December and everything was perfect. Your home perfectly met our needs. We enjoyed snowball fights, building snowmen, and sledding right out the back door. Bethel is a sweet little village where we were able to get everything from food and snacks for the stay, yummy dinners at restaurants at night, and even souvenirs to bring home. The two hour drive from the Portland Airport was easy and also provided some beautiful scenery. Sunday River (where we skied) was only 20 minutes away and everyone was very pleasant and accommodating. We could not have asked for a better start to our Holiday Vacation. Thank you for everything you did to help us settle in so easily.
We recently returned from Bethel and had a delightful stay. This townhouse was wonderful - it had everything we needed. It was extremely clean with many updates, like a recently remodeled kitchen, new appliances, wonderful decorations, and comfy bedding. It was like a home away from home.
We also loved the location - right on the golf course and in very close proximity to the pool, tennis courts, and the Bethel Inn. It was within walking distance of downtown Bethel and all its adorable shops. The restaurants there were great too - the lobster we ate was outstanding. We biked, hiked, and kayaked all nearby. We also saw many ski resorts and hope to come back and try those sometime soon.
We would highly recommend staying at this townhouse and vacationing in Bethel!
We had a wonderful week in this condo which was clean, comfortable, and attractive. The view from the deck overlooking the golf course changed each morning as September turned into October giving these Florida visitors the perfect picture of Maine with peak leaf colors.
The hostess provided great suggestions for seeing the area, from shopping in nearby historic villages and locating covered bridges, to visiting a wonderful Alpaca Farm and Store.
The condo was close enough to walk downtown for breakfast for a great cup of coffee and home baked scones or for following a trail down to a nearby stream. At night, we discovered the pleasure of dinner served in historic homes in Bethel.
The condo, with its 3 televisions, comfortable seating in front of the gas fireplace, and cozy beds with comfy pillows and extra blankets for cool nights, is the ideal place to spoil travelers! It is truly a home away from home!
Bethel is beautiful--close to the White Mountains; charming and quiet. This condo was perfect for our stay--although there were only 3 of us staying this time, it would be perfect for a larger group (5 or 6). We particularly enjoyed the openness of the great room/dining room/kitchen on the main floor, which opens out onto a balcony that has a view of the golf course. Also, the condo includes a washer and dryer and a full kitchen--everything we could want.
We found the condo to be clean and well-appointed. It includes cable TV and DSL. And the owners thoughtfully provide lots of books to read and brochures recommending local area restaurants and attractions.
We did not use the golf course (darn!) or most of the amenities at the nearby Bethel Inn, but we did have buffet breakfast there--very nice and convenient.
We would definitely recommend this condo, and plan to visit and stay there again!
I have stayed at this particular condo, in summer as well as winter and thoroughly enjoyed it-- all the amenities you need in a convenient location (ON the golf course/cross country skiing routes) and near Sunday River skiiing. Bethel is a charming little town, and this condo is just as charming! Gorgeous views!!!
