About Rich Proto

We have been renting our vacation homes in Maine and New Hampshire since 2007. We take a hands on approach, visiting frequently, to assure a great experience in a well maintained, well equipped, and clean home.

Rich Proto purchased this chalet in 2008

Why Rich Proto chose Bethel - Sunday River area

Our guests love thew lodge feel of this property, the peaceful and private setting, and the mountain views - lush green in the summer, vibrant colors in the fall, and snow covered in the winter.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Over our winter break some of my college

buddies and I stayed at two bears lodge.

Everything about the home is nice, the

beds are like laying on pillows, the hot

tub is awesome after a long day of

skiing and the views are outstanding. I

would recommend two bears lodge to

anyone one from Family's to college

students because no matter what age you

are you're going to love two bears

lodge. If you are booking this lodge

with friends make sure you get their

first and snag the loft with the king

bed, you're not going to want to miss

the loft views.

Thanks rich for letting us stay here it

was an incredible trip.

Well this was our second year and the house was just as nice as last year. We are 8 adults and 4 children and while the adults were watching tv and relaxing upstairs the kids were downstairs playing wii

I would reccomend this house to anyone clean and cozy!!!!

Waking up to the mountain views and then the watching the sun go down was just sooo nice!!!!

Rich is a pleasure to deal with and very easy to reach at any time.

So if you are thinking you want to rent this house dont just rent it!!!

My group just loves it!!

Thanks Again Rich!!!!

Had an absolutely wonderful time staying at Two Bears Lodge. It fit my friends and I perfectly and it was overall breathtaking. Very clean, spacious and the beds were super comfy. I have to say, the deck was an amazing part. From being able to wake up and sit on the deck with breakfast, or come home from a long day of adventuring and eat dinner there to watching the stars at night (so many shooting stars we saw - wow!!) it was a very memorable experience. It was in a perfect location for all we wanted to do - kayaking/canoeing, zip lining and hiking. It was very hard leaving and leaving the beautiful state of Maine but we promised we would be back. Look no further if you're looking for a place to stay for your vacation because this house is absolutely worth it! Thank you, Rich, for giving my friends and I an absolutely sublime and memorable experience while staying in your Lodge in Maine.

the property was beautiful and well maintained.

We had an amazing time, the scenery alone is enough to make myself keep coming back, the fact that the kitchen had everything you needed, wine fridge, cooking utensils..ect. made for great time. I would definitely stay there again.

Private Paradise with outstanding views and sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

I had the best time at this wonderfully maintained chalet. It is clean and comfortable. The owner is easy to work with and quick to respond to any questions. The hot tub is clean and a great added bonus after a long day of sightseeing and enjoying the beautiful mountain scenery. This is my second stay at Rich's property and I'm already planning a third visit!

We love Sunday River!

  • 3 of 5

Rich was great to work with and very responsive. Two Bears Lodge is at the end of a quiet cul de sac which was very nice. The hot tub is great. Rich provides sheets, towels and soap which was terrific. The layout of the house was perfect and the master bedroom is on the second floor away from the kids rooms. The kids especially enjoyed the playroom downstairs. The beds were very comfortable. A couple of things that would make the house perfect, are a good scrubbing and attention to detail when cleaning. The rooms are dusty and aren't cleaned properly, especially the first floor, whete the curtain in the kitchen has a layer of dust on it. My allergies were really affected and that was difficult. It seems like the cleaning service only broom sweeps the house and doesn't really clean it. The only other negative as the pans in the kitchen weren't easy to cook with because they are older I spent a lot of time scraping everything off the bottom of the pans because everything sticks. So I bought two pans with good Teflon and left them at the house so the next family has an easier time cooking. Sunday River is the best. Hope you enjoy your trip!

Owner's Response: Having our guests arrive to a clean house is our highest priority as you can see by many of the other reviews. We have a top notch cleaning crew that has been with us for 8 years. No doubt they did not do an adequate job on this occasion. As the owner, I also do 2-4 Spring cleanings per year, so I'll have to take responsibility for the dusty curtain over the kitchen window. Pots and pans are replaced regularly as needed.
