On a quiet peninsula w/ exceptional water views from every room and decks on all four sides, this sunny 4-bedroom turn-of-the-century cottage near scenic Bethel and Sunday River ski resort has been lovingly restored. Peaceful, comfortable, private and well-equipped, the house works exceptionally well for caring families or groups. People love it and typically stay right on the property it is so relaxing. There are really 3 'master bedrooms,' one smaller bedroom, and a toyroom nook with queen sleeper. The house, w/ screened porch w/ stone fireplace, has been totally redone and furnished with antiques, including a player piano, and an old woodstove. Hidden behind the charm, are modern conveniences, radiant heat throughout, cable and Apple tv, dvd, washer dryer and wireless. It is a wonderful year-round vacation home on a pretty crystal clear lake. Renters have loved the house and spot for over 27 years - read the reviews here and there are another 2 books of glowing reviews at the house. Most of our renters are return guests and come at varied times of year so only a few times available. Sited on a point of land, the property is very private but only 7 mi from Bethel w/ restaurants, great hiking, fishing and skiing. Best of all worlds.
We've rented for 27 years and people have been extremely happy with this special spot in a wonderful house. It's so comfortable and relaxing once you arrive that most people stay on the property most of the time, even though there are many activities and restaurants in the area. We're on a quiet dirt road, perfect for strolling or dogwalks and a five minute walk from a whole network of year round hiking trails. Nearby Bethel is considered one of the prettiest villages in the state, and because of the 4 season appeal has both the beauty of its natural surroundings plus many fine restaurants and numerous other amenities.
We love this property and seek renters who will enjoy its serenity and respect the great effort we've taken in its care. It is terrific for 3 generations, young families, couples who appreciate the private scenic setting; we do have great neighbors, and want to keep it that way. There are so many wonderful outdoor activities but if you get stuck inside for whatever reason, you will love the coziness and bright, warm atmosphere of this lovely scenic home.
For those not familiar with Bethel it is a wonderful area with nearby top-notch skiing, hiking and scenic drives. Only 3 hours from Boston, you experience the best of Maine without driving for hours and hours, and the community has many amenities in an unspoiled very pretty Maine town. It's hard to beat.
