As a city dweller, I'm often looking for a nice escape from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan; this wonderful rental was exactly what I was looking for, and I can't wait to visit again next year. I've often found that rentals feel like just that - a rental - but the Bear's Den felt like home. From the moment you enter, you're greeted by lovely photography, warm and comfortable living room, and (my favorite addition!) a bottle of wine compliments of the owners. What a fantastic personal touch!
After a few days in the house, it was apparent the owners/management take the upkeep and preservation of the property very seriously. Everything in the house feels wonderfully maintained, and incredibly clean - I'm never sure what I'm going to get when renting a popular condo, but the place was sparkling. The amenities worked well & they surely thought of everything when stocking the kitchen!!
The owners have so thoughtfully put together a book of popular restaurants and activities in the area, which was very helpful whilst navigating a new area. I'd recommend checking out the Matterhorn and Covered Bridge, two of my favorite Bethel/Newry spots :) And, if you're into skiing/snowboarding, Sunday River is a quick ride away (and some awesome trails!).
I would highly recommend this gorgeous rental & cannot wait to return.
