About Renee Bowers

We are skiers and generally love the outdoors all year round so Maine is the perfect place for us. We have been married for 30 years and have two grown children and one 3 year old grandchild. We live and work near Buffalo, NY

Renee Bowers purchased this house in 2012

Why Renee Bowers chose Bethel - Sunday River area

We purchased this property with the intent to retire here in less than 10 years but in the meantime wanted to let others enjoy the quiet outdoors of Maine. We have been traveling to this area for about 10-12 years and just love it in all seasons. The skiing in the winter is incredible and we have not skied anywhere else in New England since finding this area. We recently began coming back in summers and love it just as much as we do in the winter. So many outdoor things to do: biking, kayaking, fishing, hiking, swimming, etc...

Perfect mountain home in a perfect mountain location!

  • 5 of 5

This entire process from booking to checkout has been hassel free. That is exactly what a vacation should be.The property both indoor and out suited our needs perfectly. We were two families with five kids and a dog and we all felt comfortable in this home. The description was very acturate when describing the house. Everything that was discribed to be in the house was there.The local town of Bethel was very inviting and filled with small town charm.Renee was wonderful to work with and made us feel right at home. Would definately return to this property again.

Beautiful with amenities

Great house with everything you need. Great shared areas. But if with a group bedrooms are large enough to give you private space too.
