About the property

Welcome to the true Maine experience!

Our secluded Chalet is located at the foot of the spectacular White Mountains. Enjoy exquisite views while relaxing in this beautifully furnished log home.

Our Home

Though this area has no shortage of activities close by, you may find this cozy and romantic log home difficult to leave! Take in stunning mountain views from our covered wrap-a-round porch and hammock, snuggle in front of the wood stove, or soak in our hot tub after a long day of skiing.

The Chalet has an open floor plan with a modern kitchen, two bedrooms, and a spacious lofted sleeping area that can double as a reading nook, office, or playroom for the kids. You will find all our mattresses and bedding to be comfortable and clean. The living room, built of the gorgeous white pine native to this region, features cathedral ceilings and a wall of windows to let in the natural beauty of the area. A large flat-screen TV can be tucked away or revealed for football games or movie nights. Check out our DVD and board game collections!

In the basement, you will find foosball and ping pong tables, and an assortment of cross country skis, snowshoes, and other toys to freely use during your stay. Step out the front door to find yourself on an endless network of local snowmobile, snowshoe, ski and hiking trails!

Activities

The Chalet is nestled in the dynamic and exciting ‘Lakes Region’ of Maine, This area boasts some of the best skiing, fishing, boating, hiking, biking, and rock climbing in New England. Swim in one of the many lakes or secluded ponds minutes away, explore trails on horseback, or climb Mt Sabattus for spectacular views.

Attractions

Sport: For limitless family fun, the premier Sunday River Resort is only 25 minutes away. Sunday River offers just about every winter attraction, including night skiing, dog sledding, tubing, childcare, ice skating and snowmobiling. In the summer, try the recently opened Sunday River Golf Club (rated 'Top 10 Best New Golf Courses in the World' by Travel and Leisure Golf Magazine!), go for a scenic lift tour, a mountain bike ride, or join one of the many wilderness courses offered by L.L. Bean.

Art and Theatre: The enchanting Deertrees Theatre, built in 1936 with near perfect acoustics, hosts over 50 productions from June until September. See stand-up comedians, Broadway shows, and big names in jazz and classical music.

Casino: The nearby Oxford Casino boasts a massive floor plan, hundreds of slot machines and table games, and an assortment of restaurants. Go play!

Dining and Shopping: Bethel, Waterford, Norway, Fryeburg, and Lovell are all within a short drive from the Chalet. Just around the corner (via car or snowmobile!) AJ’s cooks no-frills pub food and Melby’s serves up a world-famous bison burger. A few miles down the road is Ebenezer’s Pub, rated the no.1 beer bar in America for 5 years in a row by Beer Advocate Magazine. Shop for antiques at the many antique malls in the area, or visit Bethel for the MollyOckett day parade! Visit Pietree Apple Orchard for delicious pies and baked goods, or pick the fruit yourself to bring home!

About chris christoforo and rebecca christoforo

My husband and I fell in love with this beautiful log home as soon as we saw it. In snowy November the house was warm and inviting with lovely views in every direction. Our family has spent countless beautiful days here together, and I am so happy to share this place with those who love this region of Maine as much as I do.

Fabulous Maine getaway

  • 5 of 5

The property is easy to get to, off the main road, close to area ski resorts. It is totally private. The home is beautifully decorated. The living room with wood stove was so cozy, warm and appealing. We kept the stove on just for the ambiance; there's nothing like a crackling fire and wood was plentifully provided. The kitchen is beautifully equiped; the bedrooms extremely comfortable; there was satellite TV, a hot tub, wireless Internet, lots of games, movies, books. The night sky from the deck of this lovely A frame was awash in stars that cannot ever be seen from the city. The mountains were brilliant with fall colors. This was truly a perfect getaway weekend, close to the Fryeburg Fair. We hope to return in the winter for another delightful stay.

Thanks All. :)

Very nice cabin for a get-away

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for four nights in January, 2018. The cabin is comfortable, clean, nicely decorated, and secluded. There is a hot tub , a wood stove and wood (there is also central heat), a largish flat screen with a large and eclectic selection of DVDs, and several trails within walking distance. Some amenities (coffee grinder, snowshoes) that were listed in VRBO were not actually in the cabin, so if any are important to you check with the owner before you go. Chris was very responsive to our questions before and during our stay, and even volunteered to bring us her snowshoes after we arrived and asked about them.

Perfect family house

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as depicted! Smelled like new wood upon entering. It's much newer than the outside looks! And cutely attired all around the house - like the animal cabinet pulls in the kitchen.

Living Room - Beautiful stone chimney with woodstove is very cozy!

Kitchen - Well stocked and outfitted with all that you may need, not only sugar, salt and pepper but other spices, oil, even some coffee! All kitchen towels and paper products were well stocked. (The oven door handle needs attention)

Bedrooms - Downstairs: one room with a queen bed, the other with a double bed were very comfortable. The loft is huge and has real stairs (we weren't sure from the website) 2 twins on either side of the room, with a daybed and trundle in the middle, you could sleep 4 comfortably even with luggage. The beds did not come made up, but the folded sheet sets were sitting on each bed, so there was no guesswork.

Bathroom - Good shower pressure, Plenty of towels!

Hot Tub - Rated for 6 person, but we were shoulder to shoulder (and we're not big people!)

Outside - Lots of parking, nicely off the quiet country lane and that lane is off the main road, so it's very safe for kids or dogs. Lots of trails nearby on both sides of the main road. We skied to Papoose pond and Waymouth Pond.

The heat is hot water baseboard and we did not realize how long that took to heat the house from 55 degrees. But the woodstove took over nicely that first night, and the very friendly owner returned our call as soon as they could. Overall I would highly recommend this cabin!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Although we had to cut out trip short for a family emergency I can't wait to come back here. It was perfect location for us and near everything we know. We loved the cabin and hope to be able to come back soon.

A nice cabin in the woods on a quiet road with mountain views.

  • 5 of 5

A perfect place to spend quality time with family. We enjoyed playing board games in the loft area, enjoying a Thanksgiving dinner, and the hot tub was nice.
