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

Diane -

How do I begin.. Thank You!! Thank you so very much for allowing Sean

and I the opportunity to rent your beautiful cabin and make BEAUTIFUL

memories. From the minute we walked through the door, until the moment we

put the key back into the lock box, we were in heaven. We had two beautiful

days, one of which we hiked through the Screw Auger Falls and had delicious

brick oven pizza at the Matterhorn ( I am craving the Edelweiss.. hehe) and

even though it snowed our last full day, we watched movies, laughed and

made memories. All of which was made possible by you. We hope you received

positive feedback on how we left the cabin ( I made sure we never went to

bed until the place looked the way it did when we arrived) and even though

we had an issue with the water, Josh was incredibly friendly, arrived

within 10 minutes of our call, apologized for the mistake and we had smooth

sailing after. It is obvious that you and your husband take pride in your

cabin and in the notion of leaving others with memories as beautiful as

ours. That being said, Sean called me this evening and said now that we are

home in New Jersey he wants to be back in Maine. He asked me to check when

your availabilities are for the September/October months. This time

bringing our daughter and his mother (who works three jobs and hasn't taken

a vacation since Seans father died - over 13 years) we know she will FALL

IN LOVE with the wood, the décor and the way it makes you feel that you

never left home. We would love to come during a time when a moose hike or

any hike without snow for that matter, can be taken. When we would be

surrounded by the foliage and the smells and see the town alive. I know

winter is the towns season, but we are not "winter" people... but we have

become Maine people... Anyways, I do not know how to thank you enough. If

you could get back to me about available renting dates that would be

greatly appreciated.

Again, Thank You

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!!!!
