Perfect ski get away!

  • 5 of 5

Blue bird cottage was exactly what we needed for a ski get away! Beautiful views of songo pond, and a cozy place to relax after long days of skiing. Would recommend to anyone looking for a ski vacation or a weekend away in Maine!!

Cozy cottage with excellent location on Songo Pond, minutes from Bethel and Sunday River.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a 3 day weekend at this cottage. The property was clean and had everything we needed. We used the kayak every day and had an excellent time on the pond. The cottage is very well located, close to Bethel, Sunday River, White Mountains, and Grafton Notch.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our Labor Day break at this delightful cottage. We had so much fun on the water with the dogs. Wouldn't hesitate to book again - great location and well-equipped. The fenced in yard was perfect for the dogs! Only negative was getting a citation for canoeing without life-jackets. We'll know next time!!

Lovely place

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I and our two dogs had a wonderful, relaxing vacation in this lovely setting. The cottage has small bedrooms and bathrooms, but a large kitchen and large living room. It was well-equipped with many of the supplies we would need for our five-week stay.

The side lawn leading to the dock is lovely. We used the picnic table, kayak, and canoe. We could not swim off the dock, as the water is very shallow for a long way out, but there is a small public-access beach a five-minute walk around to the north side of the pond.

We explored the nearby Grafton Notch State Park, which has waterfalls and hiking trails. There are also several summer activities at the Sunday River Ski Resort. Nearby Bethel is charming and has a grocery store, pharmacy, several restaurants, etc.

Overall, a lovely place to vacation in the summer to get away from the Florida heat!

Fantastic family weekend!

  • 4 of 5

We take a trip to Santa's Village every year the weekend after Thanksgiving. This is the first year we have rented a house. We loved it and we are already planning a summer trip. The house was so cute and we loved the bright sunny kitchen. The kids loved the big fenced in backyard and wished the pond had been completely frozen so they could skate. All the necessities were already there so packing was so much easier!
