About Diane Dalton

Diane and Christopher. We live and work in Austin, TX. Chris is a PhD clinical psychologist and Diane a Speech-Language Pathologist.

We visited Bethel, ME in 2011 and knew that this was a place we want to bring our family for many years to come. Growing up in the panhandle of Texas, (Diane) and Iowa (Chris), we had NO idea that Maine was such a fabulous state to visit! We were enamored with the area and chose this beautiful cabin which we immediately remodeled, then added a screened gazebo and fire pit to better enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Each year we continue to add features and upgrade because we consider each guest a special part of our endeavors to provide a wonderful vacation.

Diane Dalton purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Diane Dalton chose Bethel - Sunday River area

Where do we begin.....Ski magazine has hailed Bethel, ME 'The Greatest Ski Town In the Universe' and '#1 Best Skiing in New England', GOLF #1 'Best Public Golf Course in the Northeast' (2014). Bethel was also listed in the top 10 'Best Outdoor Places in America', offering hiking, biking, canoeing, rafting, and Bethel's Outdoor Adventure Park.

We first visited the Bethel area in the summer of 2011. We immediately fell in love with the area and its friendly people. There were countless activities from which to choose for our 15 y/o daughter and her friend. We played golf on the spectacular Sunday River #1 Ranked (GOLF 2014) course, hiked, canoed, and white-water rafted. On the weekend, we went to Sunday River Resort where we did the zip line and went down the mountain to the brewing company, where we had delicious hamburgers and a flight of beer. Sunday River also offers hiking and mountain biking at various levels of expertise.

The restaurants were fabulous! We dined at the tavern, Suds, where we listened to great live music. Later, we ate at a world renowned 22 Broad Street 4-star restaurant, where we had wonderful Italian food. There were many cuisines available....or you can cook your own delicious meal!

We were sold once we discovered that the best snow and golf course in the Northeast is Sunday River. Our family loves both winter and summer sports so this scenic place was perfect!

What makes this cabin unique

Since 2011, when we purchased our lovely cabin, it has been such a joy to offer our guests new and beautiful features. Every year, we determine what our guests and family would enjoy and add those features/items to the cabin.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Nicely maintained. Everything was provided. Great location. Everyone had an awesome time.

  • 4 of 5

It was a beautiful cabin, completely stocked with the necessary appliances(and then some). I was amazed as to how much was left for us by previous guests. So, of course, we left a lot of our extra things for the next guests as well. The cabin sleeps 12 comfortably. Just an all around good experience. The only things that I can say negatively was that the first aid kit wasn't stocked and the smoke detectors appeared to be broken. Other than that, I would recommend this cabin to any traveler who wants to experience Maine. It was an amazing vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking time to write a review! We are delighted that all 12 of you slept comfortably and that the cabin was stocked with more than you had expected :) We hope you were able to use the new espresso machine we purchased for our guests this year! We have contacted our property manager about the smoke detectors and the first aid kit. Unfortunately, batteries and bandaids deplete when you least expect it! So glad your big group had an amazing vacation! Please come again! Diane and Chris

The house was beautiful and well stocked. We enjoyed our stay very much.

  • 4 of 5

House was beautiful and very well stocked. There were only a few minor things that we noticed. First when we got there the grill was covered in barbecue sauce and dirty plates inside. So of course we had to scrub that down before we could use it. Next a hot tub has no headrest. On 3rd the Landscaping needed to be trimmed back. Getting to the fire pit could not stay on the brakes because of the overgrown weeds and plants. But other than that gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous. Definitely would return again

Owner's Response: We are so glad you all enjoyed your stay at the cabin! Thank you so such for taking time to write the review and we appreciate your feedback. Our goal is for each guest to have a "perfect" experience so we are disappointed when it is not the exactly as we'd hoped. We have addressed each of the issues you have mentioned with our very responsible caretakers. I'm sure, especially concerning the grill and headrest, they just didn't open the grill or hot tub to notice. Please know that we would love to have you again!!!

Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled to this property with two 11 month old babies and absolutely enjoyed it. It is located close to a variety of activities. The property is well equipped; we particularly appreciated the kitchen equipment to cook great meals. We weren't able to use the spa as it was a very hot week but everything looked great.

The beds are very comfortable! We definitely recommend.

Owner's Response: How wonderful that your family had a great time at our Bethel cabin and thank you so much for sharing! We also enjoy the many activities that Bethel and the surrounding area have to offer. Even with little ones, Grafton State Park is enjoyable for a hike or picnic. The beds, memory foam mattresses and pillows, and high quality sheets have always been a priority for us as we value a good night's rest :) We also find pleasure in purchasing special kitchen items to make your stay special. The espresso machine was new for our summer guests. Thanks again for the review! It would be our pleasure to have your family again!!! Diane and Chris

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedule to write a review! We are thrilled that you found the beds soft and comfy. This is so important to us that we added memory foam pillows to all queen beds last year and offer 1000+ thread-count sheets throughout. Our caretakers, Monica and Josh, deserve all the credit for the cleanliness of the cabin. Our success depends so highly on their attention to detail...every corner of the cabin and grounds. We would love to have you and your family stay with us in the future! Again, thank you!!!!
