I have never seen such a clean house! Great little amenities ( soap, shampoo, conditioner) perfect setup for 6 people ( living room had a great stove to warm up the room ) . Everything you can want or need in kitchen, very close to historic Bethel but in a quiet cul de sac. and pet friendly no less! Would highly recommend

Our family of four was extremely comfortable in this beautiful home. The house is located at the end of a cul de sac in a very nice community, which felt extremely safe for our kids and dog. The home is located very close to town and was about a 13 minute drive to Sunday River.

We loved it here. It’s in a great location. The house has wonderful views of the mountains out of the kitchen window. We thought the house was quite cold but there is a fire in the living room which soon heats the house up.

This is a great quiet home to relax after skiing all day. The radiant heating and gas stove makes the place warm and cozy. The back yard is fenced and a combination of grass and woods, perfect for a dog that wants to explore. We would certainly stay here again.

The layout of the house was nice, guest bedrooms a distance from the master. Cooked a couple of meals and all kichen implements and devices were there as needed. The fully fenced in yard was a big plus for us and our dog.

Pros: The house was located in a quiet neighborhood that was off of the main road. The kitchen was fully equipped. Laundry detergent and dish soap/detergent was provided. The garage was empty and extremely clean. 3 good size bedrooms, one had a private bath, and a second bathroom was in the middle of the other two bedrooms. Plenty of couch space in the living room. Beautiful landscaping.
Cons: We were unable to enjoy the outside of the home because the mosquitoes were so thick. The outside temperature ranged from 70-80 degrees and the house was very hot and sticky- the thermostats did not provide cooling and the fan in the bedroom and living room provided little relief. There must have been a long haired pet that had stayed recently because the couch was covered in thick white hair that stuck to our clothing after sitting on the couch. The beds were very firm.
Thank you for your review, Leah! We apologize for any dog hair housekeeping missed while cleaning up. We always do our best to remove all pet hair, but there will almost always be some evidence left by animals. The regional nighttime temperatures get fairly cool, so a lot of homes in the area do not have air conditioning. We suggest having the windows open to let the air move and utilize the fans to help. We hope to see you again!

Convenient, homey, and comfortable for four adults to enjoy. My family enjoyed the mountain view and the cozy kitchen and dining area; cooked our meals there with a well stocked kitchen.

The house was very nice. The layout was great. Nice big kitchen and it was exceptionally clean.
However, the electric fireplace did not work all weekend.
When we arrived the house was very chilly but did heat up later.
The outside walkways needed to be shoveled. And we couldn't figure out how to open garage doors (lots of snow if front of doors anyway).
It was a pleasure hosting you, Lisa! We are pleased that you enjoyed the spacious kitchen, and the overall layout of this home. We apologize that the fireplace is no longer available, and we have updated our listing. In addition, we are sorry the walkways were not easily accessible due to the accumulation of snow during peak season. While we try to remove as much snow as possible prior to your arrival, we encourage guests to call our management team who are available 24/7 should any further assistance be needed. Also, the garage door is accessible from the inside, and available for guests during their stay. We’d love to have a chance to host your group again, and provide a stress-free experience for your next getaway.
