Description of the Bethel vacation cabin rental

The comfortable living area has plenty of seating for all and has wonderful views of Howard Pond Stream. There is a phone, cable TV, DVD and VCR if you require a break from the tranquility. The Monitor® heat system is extremely efficient and provides a great way to dry out those wet winter clothes. There is also a gas woodsove for the apre-ski ambiance or cold fall evenings. The paddle fan in the great room and the master bedroom will keep the air moving with a gentle breeze on those warm August days. The great room and kitchen area are paneled in native pine with a lofty cathedral ceiling.

The River House features a new kitchen with maple cabinets. The kitchen is big and bright and opens directly to the great room and dining area. If you’re the one cooking dinner you won't feel left out from the rest of the fun. It is fully applianced; including a microwave and dishwasher. All the dishes and service you will require are here, right down to a crock-pot and spices. There is a full bath, with tub and shower, a washer & dryer and plenty of linen for a family.

The master bedroom looks out over the stream and has a paddle fan for warm summer nights. A large dresser, rocking chair and queen size bed with night table will make you feel right at home.

The guestroom on the other side of the hall has an antique double bed, nightstand and chest of drawers.

Completing the sleeping area is a laddered loft that kids will delight in. It's like their own little tree house. There are three twin mattresses on the floor and a secret door that opens up to the great room below so they can view the TV or be a part of the action down below. We suggest bringing sleeping bags as we do not provide bedding for the loft.

Area Information

The River House overlooks cascading Howard Pond stream. It is situated on the riverbank at the location where three old mills used to stand. Privacy abounds at this private four-acre wooded lot. This Bethel ME Vaction Rental is just 10 minutes from Sunday River and 1/2 mile from US Rt. 2. There is a private gravel road leading to a wood bridge over the river and this pristine location. Your host is a PSIA certified level 3 ski pro and Sunday River staff trainer. Private coaching is available and should be arranged well in advance.

Enjoy the use of the Howard Pond Town Beach, a short distance up the road, or a dip in our clear mountain brook. X-Country ski or snowmobile right from your door all the way to Canada. Deep cold Howard Pond, just up the road, is renowned for its great trout fishing and access is easy for a canoe or small boat. There are small trout in the stream and some excellent fishing in the Androscoggin River running along nearby Rt. 2.

The Androscoggin is quickly becoming known as a canoer's paradise for those looking to experience nature. There is easy access and you will not surrounded by other paddlers. Go for a couple hours or pack a lunch and plan an excursion for the whole day. Canoes can be rented nearby or a guided trip may be arranged.

Picturesque views and the soothing babble of cascading waterfalls will be your treat as you relax on the deck. A sliding door from the living area is your access to this tranquil spot. A gas barbeque grill is provided for your afternoon or evening meal. The deck makes a great place to relax and do some reading while the kids play in the brook.

Howard Stream Rental

Very nice and clean Everything is as advertised The driveway/parking area is very confined, full size vehicles will have some maneuvering issues Also, if you plan to use the toaster, bring your own. The old 2 slicer doesn't get the job done. After 2 slices it is overheated and useless.

Our family stayed this fabulous River house for the summer vacation. This house is so private and perfect for family reunion. We played Golf, hiking, swimming, and barbecuing every night.

The sound of stream was leading us to another step of pleasure and calmness. It is hard to describe the peaceful environment. Thank you

What a wonderful vacation spot! We loved the house, the stream in the backyard and the campfire! Fishing was not as expected but the beauty of the surroundings made up for it! We had a great time visiting Grafton Notch Park, visiting the area waterfalls, and awesome hiking trailsup the mountains. We got a workout on table rock loopthat we'll never forget. The view from the top made it all wowhile. We hope to visit again next year... This is an incredible house and vacation spot. God's beauty is touching, much loved and appreciated.Thanks very much Scott and Carol.... We'll be back!
