     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 full 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.

     As the sun sets and you return from your busy day this is the place to enjoy that favorite cocktail while the sounds of mother nature's wonders complete your relaxation. Maybe even catch a small trout or two in the stream to cook on the grill. In the evening, relax by a cozy campfire in the stone fireplace by the stream. You probably will not believe you can be this close to everything and yet feel so far away.

The River House is private and serene
and yet you will enjoy all the comforts of home. This is indeed a special Bethel Maine Vaction Rental.

     The comfortable living area has plenty of seating for all and has wonderful views of Howard Pond Stream. There is a phone, WIFI, basic cable TV, and DVD 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.
