Recent Bethel reviews
Such a luxurious and relaxing getaway
"The Barn House was the perfect spot for a bunch of 30-something nerds to get together for a long weekend and celebrate an upcoming wedding by cooking amazing meals, playing tabletop games, lounging in the hot tub, and enjoying a keg of excellent craft beer. Everything was just as advertised, and the kitchen was incredibly well-appointed. The only thing I would do differently next time would be to order the keg from the liquor store in town since they do delivery/installation -- we had to put in the keg ourselves, which required some quick internet research and trial & error but ultimately worked out fine."

"We rented the Bingham House in Bethel ME for our family reunion, and it could not have been any better. Everything was just as described, and we had a great time. I would recommend this property to anyone with a large group. You won't be disappointed"

"words can not express how wonderful the house on the hill was for our winter in Maine. A real home with high end linens, furniture and full stocked kitchen. Anne does not skimp on anything. I rented this home sight unseen for the winter and I was amazed with the high quality and cleanliness of the house. It is a house with all the special touches you want when sneaking away. Not to mention the very special and king people that take a hand in helping with the House on the Hill like Peg/Bob and Ben the plow man. This home is exceptional in all ways.
Our walks on Howard pond and easy trips to the Sunday River Mountain and Gould Academy to visit my children made my weekends there just perfect and exactly what I was looking for in a winter rental. Anne has a little piece of heaven there for sure! I hope to enjoy it during the summer months as I feel it was a 10+ in the quiet of winter. Thank you so much to all at the House on the Hill for sharing and making it such a very special winter for my family and myself!"

"This house was gorgeous inside and out- it had fantastic views from the floor-to-ceiling windows on the mountain facing side (including the two-story living room), and a stunning breakfast bar (likely made from a tree from the property, though I'm not sure on that one!). The rooms were all good-sized and most had their own temperature control so everyone could stay comfortable, and the three full bathrooms were useful for large groups. We had stunning views of the foliage, and I can imagine it being gorgeous in the winter or summer as well!
Our group of 9 adults was very comfortable, and I think another one or two could have stayed without anyone needing a top bunk; for families with teens or children, 13 would be comfortable.
The owner was accommodating and responsive to work with on our stay.
The only cons/things to be aware of: the walls were on the thin side so conversations carry pretty well through the house - we turned our fan on so it took a lot of noise to bother us, though! Also, 4WD is recommended in the winter but the driveway is pretty steep - those of us with manual transmissions got the trick down pretty quickly of hitting the driveway in second gear to make it up all the way, but I would drive an automatic if you can!
Overall, we had an awesome, fun stay, and thought the house was better than the wedding venue :-)"
