There is a wood stove and plenty of seasoned wood. We have 3 TVs with satellite. The kitchen is all new. The bathrooms are new. Rustic maple hardwood floors, new tile floors in the kitchen and main level bathroom, new appliances and counter top, and fresh paint throughout make this more of a home than a cabin. Walk down the driveway and across the road to the lake. Next door is a nice playground with swings and jungle gyms. New hot tub fall 2006

Charming house

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect house in a great location for winter activities. Bill was very accommodating and responsive when I had questions. I would definitely recommend this rental to others and would like to return with my family in the warmer weather to try out the kayaks!

Beautiful escape from the city!

  • 5 of 5

It was amazing! The house is equipped with all the essentials for a great getaway: plenty of beds, fireplace, hot tub, bathrooms, mountain and lake views that are great for selfies, and peace and quiet. My mates and I had a blast and are planning our next trip. It was a pleasure and the host Bill is very pleasant! He was open to all questions, concerns, and always willing to help. Can’t wait to go back !

Perfect Maine Weekend

  • 4 of 5

My family loved the stay at the cabin in Woodstock!

The house was in great condition when we arrived - and had everything that we needed.

Wifi was a bit iffy for some of the stay, but honestly that just made the kids unplug a bit more.

The kayaks were PERFECT for 3 first time kayakers... we sure enjoyed the pristine lake.

The view is incredible from the front deck. This is a wonderful house for a big family and we'd love to visit again.

The number of kayaks, canoes, lifejackets and games sure made the stay wonderful.

Bill was very responsive and very welcoming.

About Bill Maines

We purchased this house with the dream of making it an ideal location for our family and guests to gather year round and enjoy the location, views, lake, skiing, hiking and the area.

Bill Maines purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Bill Maines chose Woodstock

Driving up to this house for the first time we all knew it was the one instantly. Real estate experts say you must have the "feeling in your gut" to make a wise purchase and we all felt it as we pulled into the driveway for the first time and realized all it had to offer. Friends, family and guests have all enjoyed the house and the area from since then and we continue to improve the house, both inside and out.

What makes this chalet unique

From the deck the view is incredible, especially in the early morning as you look across Lake Christopher and the surrounding mountains. The hot tub has been extremely popular and obviously enjoyable after a long day on the slopes. The wood stove is an essential part of any log cabin home in the mountains and has been used by many over the years. The summer is always busy with a beach, a dock, clean water and we now offer 6 kayaks and 2 canoes with all the accompanying PFD's and paddles.


Located just two hours north of Boston on Rt. 26 and only 15 minutes south of Sunday River ski area. The log cabin is situated just across a quiet street from the lake, with a small sandy beach right in front of the cabin. The water and mountain views are stunning with much of the surrounding area protected under conservation.

Golf: The Bethel Country Club is only ten minutes away. Sunday River Golf Club is an award winning facility only 15 minutes away.

Ski: This cabin is just 15 minutes from Sunday River and 5 minutes from Mt. Abrams. Carter's Cross Country Ski is ten minutes away.
