Description

Original charm meets modern updates at this rambling farmhouse on the edge of the woods in the village of Bethel. Boasting a quiet, private location, yet near all the area’s amenities, it’s less than a mile to restaurants, grocery stores, the Broad Street Historic District, the Maine Mineral and Gem Museum, and all the outdoor adventures you are planning on trying. There, you can see the largest collection of Maine minerals and one of the world's greatest collections of space rocks, including the largest piece of the Moon and Mars known to exist. Those visiting in the winter will appreciate the easy access to Sunday River, Mt. Abram, and Carter's Cross Country Ski, all just a few minutes’ drive. Inland Woods + Trails is an easy walk away, and features hiking and cross-country skiing right in town.

At the farmhouse, you’ll find warm hardwood floors, lots of original woodwork and built-ins, and multiple cozy spots to gather with friends and family. Electric vehicle owners will be happy to plug into complimentary charging, adding to your vacation home's conveniences. Get the woodstoves going to keep everyone toasty while the chef makes mealtime magic in the full, well-equipped kitchen, boasting plenty of workspaces, hardwood cabinetry, and a full suite of appliances. Sit down for a meal together in the sunny dining room or grab a quick snack in the kitchen before heading out to explore. 

After days on the slopes, unwind at home while you stream the latest release from either comfy living room, check your social media feeds with the free WiFi, or grab a book or board game and unplug completely. Toss the day’s clothes in the washer/dryer for a quick refresh, and keep dinner simple on the gas grill, or even simpler with a visit to a local restaurant. Five well-appointed bedrooms await to offer a restful night’s sleep. The quiet village getaway you’ve been dreaming of awaits - all that’s left to do is book.

The outside is deceiving. The house is spread out, great for multiple family units to have space and conversations. Good kitchen to make meals. Fun space!! Add to this its very close to downtown and groceries, coffee and options to eat. 15 minutes to Sunday river -easy drive.

We had such a wonderful time at this beautiful home! Our family cannot say enough about how much character this house has, the spacious bedrooms and living rooms, and how comfy and cozy we all felt. The house was neat, clean, and had plenty of linens and towels. Thank you for a wonderful stay! Paula

The Big Chill was a beautiful home that was perfect for my family on new years. There was the perfect amount of room for everyone and the space made us feel like we were at home. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a cozy yet luxurious getaway to Sunday River.
