Beautiful open floor plan cabin with fieldstone hearth and chimney and second floor balcony. Cabin resides on a seven-acre wooded lot, which affords peace and quiet. One bedroom and one bathroom are on the first floor, along with a fold-out queen bed in the living room. The kitchen and dining area are also on the first floor. Two bedrooms and another bathroom are on the second floor. There is a front porch with Adirondack chairs for relaxing outside in the Spring, Summer, and Fall.
Local attractions include Sunday River Ski area (8 peaks), Mt. Abram Ski Area, Sunday River Golf Club (a Robert Trent Jones, Jr. design), and the Bethel Inn Golf Course--within 10 minutes drive. In addition, numerous hiking trails, including the Appalachian Trail, are nearby. There are also nearby recreational lakes. Bethel is a charming New England town with numerous restaurants and shops.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2000
Various members of our family love to ski, hike, play golf, and canoe. We also enjoy simply escaping to the mountains. It is much cooler and pleasant in the Summer, and the Fall foliage is amazing. The skiing is much better at Sunday River than at most other New England resorts. It is a little farther from New York City and Boston. Because Sunday River is so large and has such great lifts, there are very few waits in lift lines. We also fell in love with the cabin when we first saw it.
When we are at the cabin, we enjoy a comfortable, rustic, and peaceful setting. Although the cabin has central heating, we also greatly enjoy the beautiful fireplace during the Fall and Winter months. During the Spring and Summer, we spend a lot of time on the porch, out in the large yard, and in the surrounding woods.
It was a great cabin for our big family. The cabin was well equipped for us to cook our meals. Our kids had a great time walking around the forest and sledding down the hill in the front yard. The fireplace was wonderful on the cold days and nights. Loved it. Also great for it to be "connected".
We had a great ski week with our three college age sons with lots of fun making fires & playing board games. Cabin is well equipped with everything you need to be comfortable. With DHL it also kept our children "connected." Close to town and support services like snow plowing provided which insured getting to mountain to ski after a foot of snow. We really enjoyed New Year's fireworks at Sunday River. Cabin is well maintained with good heating system as well as a great fireplace with stocked woodshed. The cabin is located at the top of a steep hill (mountain road) and was a bit challenging to climb in the ice the first night but was fine for the rest of our stay. Made wonderful memories and had a nice stay at "The Cabin."
