    A mountain village in Maine

    A pristine and historic village located on the western edge of the Oxford Hills, Bethel is a winter sports paradise and a gateway to the vast White Mountain National Forest and Maine's tallest mountains. Choose one of the Bethel vacation rentals in winter will allow you to really make the most of the local skiing, snowmobiling, and other winter sports. Or, you can come over in summer for blissful, scenic hikes and wildlife spotting sojourns just a stone's throw from this friendly, welcoming town.

    Explore quaint Bethel

    The sobriquet of 'Maine's Most Beautiful Mountain Village' has a competitive field, but it's a title Bethel claims for its own. And that's not all – this friendly little community also holds the record for building the World's Tallest Snowperson. You can get your feel for Bethel life by taking the self-guided walking tour from the village common, or browsing the local independent eateries, galleries, gift shops, and boutiques. This is Maine, so you can expect delicious lobster and seafood of course, as well as a cosmopolitan selection of restaurants.

    Bethel: a winter paradise

    If you're staying at a Bethel vacation rental, you might well be here for the fantastic winter sports and summertime outdoor activities available just a short drive from town. But don't miss exploring the fascinating local history while you're in Bethel. The Dr. Moses Mason House is a good place to start. It dates back to 1813 and, thanks to the Bethel Historical Society, contains a research library, and a 9-room period house museum. There are many attractive historical landmarks around town, but one of the most charming is the carved wooden Sunday River bridge close to the Sunday River ski and mountain resort. It's one of Maine's few surviving 19th-century covered bridges.

    Winter sports and summer fun in Bethel

    Bethel is busiest in the winter months. Its proximity to Maine's most popular ski area – the Sunday River Ski Area is a short drive from town – and the Mount Abram ski area means that visitors flock to Bethel from November through April to ski, snowmobile, snowshoe, sleigh ride, tube, and ice fish. Hiking and biking trails open from May, with warm summer temperatures reaching into the 70s. Fall is arguably the most beautiful time of year, with the hills aflame with autumnal color and the temperatures on the trails cooler but still pleasant.

    Bethel's great outdoors

    From your Bethel vacation rental, you have your pick of forest trails and mountain peaks. West of town, the White Mountain National Forest spills across the state line into New Hampshire. This ancient forest has miles of hiking, biking, and skiing trails, historic sites, and one of the highest peaks in this part of the United States. You can enjoy breathtaking scenery, clear mountain lakes and streams, and incredible wildlife spotting – including moose, and a wide variety of birds – as well as hunting, rockhounding, and horseback riding.
