About Diane Dalton

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

Diane,

What a wonderful time we had in Bethel, Maine. I just wish we would have

had more time in that part of the country. The colors in Maine were

spectacular. Your cabin was all you said it would be and more. For myself

and my family thank you for allowing us to share your wonderful home in

Maine. You made our trip and the wedding one I will long remember.

Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the cabin for a week for our honeymoon and it was perfect! The house was well kept, clean and in a quiet and relaxing location. We loved all of the little details that made it feel like home!

The location is perfect for taking day trips, we were able to visit a couple state parks, take a guided fishing trip, and stop at the many antique shops along the way. We loved meeting the locals in Bethel and were invited to a benefit festival at the town common where we purchased some beautiful handmade items.

We highly recommend the seafood sampler and live music at The Suds Pub, visiting with the bartender at the Funky Red Barn, (she has great recommendations for things to do) and checking out the shops (especially the pottery gallery) on Main St.

We loved everything about our experience and would love to visit the cabin in the winter!

Thank you, Diane and Chris, for opening your home for others to experience the serenity of the area.

Awesome cabin with great amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 8 stay here for a golf trip to Sunday River Golf Club. It was a perfect place- clean, spacious, affordable, and had great amenities. The fire pit was a nice way to spend the evenings and the hot tub was relaxing. Diane (owner) was extremely responsive when I emailed her with questions. We do the golf trip every year and definitely plan to stay at this cabin next year.

Nice and clean!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, it is a beautiful cabin. Our only comment is a better time to rent the cabin would be in the Fall or winter. The mosquitos make it impossible to spend anytime outside by the fire pit or to have coffee on the front porch. The Gazebo is beautiful and was the only place we could enjoy the outdoors. But the cabin was very clean and the beds were all comfortable!

loved the property.

  • 5 of 5

this is a must see and stay place if your are staying in the Bethel area. we were there in the summer and we made day trips to the coast for water activities. nice to come back to a private place to relax. inside the property had everything we were in need of. enjoyed the evenings playing games and in the Jacuzzi. I could see a family enjoying a ski vacation as Sunday river ski resort is only a short drive away. can't say enough good things thanks to the daltons for all there efforts.
