About Gretchen Anderson

We have been building and renting large, high end luxury vacation homes since 2001. We also travel alot ourselves and host large friend and family gatherings at our homes. We stock our homes for those perfect gatherings/celebrations/vacations where there is always something for everyone. Whether you plan to enjoy all the recreation the Maine Mountains provide, or just enjoy the house and amenities, you will have a wonderful stay.

Gretchen Anderson purchased this house in 2008

Why Gretchen Anderson chose Bethel

We had always loved this incredibly beautiful historic home in Bethel, and were honored when we were able to purchase it. The location is ideal, being on a dead end of the maine street in town, ensuring privacy while being on the country club and walking distance to everything. We painstakingly restored the home to its original splendor, while updating it with modern conveniences. We love the home, and look forward to sharing it with you.

What makes this house unique

Location, Location, Location! You truly don't need a car once you arrive. Oh, and the house is amazing! And the location- with a country club in the back yard!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Bingham House,

Thanks for the Grand House for Our Family to have a Grand Time! It was wonderful for us to all be together! The house is so beautiful and comfortable for a large family! We cooked family meals, hung out and just relaxed. The dreams were amazing and our sister's wedding was great.

One of the best properties in the Sunday River area

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to this house for the last 4-5 years with a group of friends. Every time we come we have a ton of fun. The house is perfectly designed for families and it has everything you might need. Gretchen makes the process of going on vacations extremely easy. Definetely one to consider when coming to Sunday River

Great extended family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bingham house for 5 nights with our four adult children, their spouses and children. We are a BIG family and the house was ideal for us. The kitchen was incredibly well-stocked, the bedrooms were all lovely, the playroom with the arcade game and foosball was a huge hit with the kids, there were lot of comfortable places to sit and chat. The pool at the Bethel Inn (an easy walk) was inside/outside and heated with jets at one end. I think the kids swam there every day in between skiing at Sunday River. We have rented properties for our family vacations for many years and this was one of our very favorites. Gretchen is great to work with and extremely accommodating.

The owners thought of everything. Gorgeous house. The pictures don't do it justice.

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous home and the owners thought of everything. Well suited for adults, teens and young children. Beautiful detail in all the rooms. They kept a great deal of the original hardware on the doors and windows. It's like stepping back in time to a golden age. Wife had a wonderful 50th birthday with friends and family. The owners are super organized and everything was easy to find and everything had excellent directions. It also snowed 12 inches on April fools day and that was sure a bonus for us skiers in the group. We would recommend this home and these property owners to anyone and everyone. Just a fabulous home.

This is one of the bes properties in the Sunday River area

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd winter trip to this house and everytime we go we love it. It's a great house for families with kids. Everyone has its own space while been together at the same time. Location is convinient to go to Sunday River and they have a parking pass that is worth gold during weekends

Bingham House

  • 5 of 5

House was a perfect place to relax, visit and ski! So much to do...or the perfect place to do nothing! There was something for everyone (ages 6 months to 70). Plenty of space in house for all to be comfortable. Gracious homeowner who was quick to respond and had tons of information about what to do and see in area.
