CHARMING SUNDAY RIVER FARM HOUSE

Gilead Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Historic Farmhouse near Sunday River and White Mountains. Great Location.

Historic 5 bedroom Farmhouse near Sunday River Ski Resort. Fully equipped large eat in kitchen, dining room, 2 living rooms each with cozy woodstoves, and beautiful large backyard situated on a spring-fed brook. This charming rambling farm house with modern amenities is the perfect setting to enjoy your favorite outdoor winter activities with friends and family. Not only is Sunday River a quick drive away, but there are also great snowshoeing trails and miles of snowmobiling trails from the backyard, as well as local opportunities for cross country skiing and dog sledding.

The arrangement of the house allows for privacy if you need to get away from the big group, as well as comfortable areas for everyone to congregate. There are 2 separate living rooms each with ample comfortable seating, wood stove, television, and VCR or Wii/DVD player. The fully equipped kitchen offers plenty of space and equipment to prepare meals; and the dining room can seat up to 12 with 6 additional seats in the eat-in kitchen. Five bedrooms with a mixture of twin and double/queen beds allows this property to be suitable for a variety of groups – adventure groups, multi-family groups, groups of couples, and multigenerational families. The master suite offers great privacy with a king bed and en-suite full bathroom. Each additional bedroom has double or queen beds, perfect for couples, as well as 1-2 additional twin beds per bedroom for children. This property comfortably sleeps 18, but is cozy enough for smaller parties as well.

Family ski weekend stay

  • 5 of 5
Sunday River Farm House was a great getaway for my family. It allowed us an opportunity we don't get to often to spend some relaxing time with family. The house easily allowed for 6 adults and 5 children to sleep comfortably and have are own comfortable space. The house was very clean and cozy. We cooked most meals there due to our large group and enjoyed the large kitchen and the ability to have plenty of seating to eat. We also enjoyed the outdoor fire pit in the middle of the snow covered yard, making smores and looking at the dark sky with all the beautiful stars.
Bethel where the house is located is a very cute town with several fun restaurants to go to and the ability to get anything you may have forgotten at home. The convenience of the location of the house to Sunday River Ski Resort was so nice, it is a beautiful and quick ride.
The owners were very helpful is planning our stay and knowledgable of the area. The were very quick to responding to any questions we had and really gave us the feeling the cared about us having a nice stay at this home. We hope to go back again this year and plan on having many more memories at this beautiful, spacious and comfortable home.

A Good Place

  • 4 of 5
8 of our college friends and I stayed two nights over the New Years holiday at this place. The host was responsive and helpful via email and the house was largely as described. The house is rather large with ample room and basic accommodations. It is not elaborately decorated or adorned and has just more than the bare necessities (which is just fine). It was a great home base for a ski weekend at Sunday River. We'd stay again and felt the price was fair.

Owner's Response: Jonathan, we are so happy that you enjoyed reconnecting with old friends; our house is a great space for just that! If you choose to rent in the future you will appreciate our recently refurnished living room. We are also in the process of starting a kitchen remodel just as soon as the ski season ends!

After returning from our third visit to this vacation farmhouse, I need to take the time to complete this survey! Our family of 3 generations have always had a wonderful time together during our stays there. There is so much to do in the area and so much space to spread out that even our group, numbering 11 on the last visit, have not felt confined in any way. The 5 bedrooms are very spacious (great for bringing whatever you want with you!). We use the space as an anchor while we enjoy the acitivites in the area, mostly skiing (both downhill at Sunday River and x-country on several groomed trails in the area) and snowshoeing and hiking. We look forward to a summer visit to take advantage of kayaking on the Androscoggin as we have discovered there is a company right down the road that provides that service.
Although we woke up to -20 degree weather on our last visit the house was very comfortable. The central heat was augmented by a wood stove in one of the living rooms and a pellet stove in the other and there were plenty of blankets available on the beds for all of us. Although the farmhouse is older, it has always been clean with everything in working order, and lots of amenities ie: well equipted kitchen, washer/dryer,closet full of games, dozens of movies, and an outdoor fire pit (which we have used on every visit!) to mention a few.
It seems clear to me that the owners are serious in their quest for quality rental property at a fair price.
We have explored the area and found a number of reasonably priced restaurants and pubs in nearby Bethel, their names escape me but I think there is a notebook the owners provide with suggestions.
I would definitely recommend this property, especially if you want spacious living at a fair price.

Great for Family get togethers / reunions

  • 4 of 5
We had an anjoyable time at the property which essentially serves the needs for anyone who is looking to have a relaxed vacation. The owners response to some of the concerns we had was attentive and prompt. We would definitely choose to stay there again should our travels bring us back to Maine.

Great for hikers in the summertime!

  • 5 of 5
Myself and a large group of friends stayed here for a weekend while we were on a hiking trip. The place was cozy and charming, and was really great to come back to a warm bed after a long day of hiking! The property was clean, well-maintained and our group felt right at home the whole time. Also, having the grill was great since we could grill up some burgers and have a grand old time the night before our big hike. Since the property is only about 25 minutes from the Appalachia trailhead in the White Mtns, its very convenient for hikes starting in that region!
