Memories for a Lifetime

  • 5 of 5

The Glen House is a magnificent property that should be experienced! We could not have found a better place to celebrate with all of our family and friends. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the Glen House, we made memories that we will never forget. The home is large but it is comfortable and cozy. The elegance and the casual blend seamlessly with the home. The workmanship, décor and layout are among the best I’ve seen. The Glen house owners nailed it with this home and amenities it offers. We are already talking about our next stay at the Glen House!

Quite a Memorable Experience!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 8 couples recently stayed for the weekend at Glen House in celebration of a 40th birthday. We were all beyond impressed by the amazing house, endless amenities and beautiful surroundings. We took advantage of it all- hot tubs, steam rooms, sauna, firepit, movie theatre, video games, basketball hoop- we felt like kids at an amusement park! We also took advantage of the gourmet kitchens, cooking and grilling delicious meals. One of the best spots was the sun filled deck overlooking the pristine golf course. This was an unforgettable place and we are still talking about it. We have already decided we would be celebrating here each year!

10 years and counting!

  • 5 of 5

I want to thank Gretchen and Chris for allowing the ladies of Bentley University Coming Full Circle group to use the Glen House. We have had our leadership retreat there for 10 years and have had a wonderful time each year. The retreat is special to CFC and it allows us to get away from the campus and just relax. The space allows great conversation to take place.

We have found it a source of healing for many of the ladies that have attended the retreat. Over the years, many women who have attended the retreat have come back raving about the house and the property it is on. The house is spacious and beautiful. There is not a bad view from any location. The space is great for working in teams. It is easy to move around by using all three levels of the house. Having two incredible kitchens make it easy to prepare meals as a team and have wonderful sessions. These sessions have allowed the ladies to grow and become some of our campus’ great leaders.

We cannot thank you enough for allowing us to spend time in this beautiful space. The bathrooms, sauna, showers and bathtubs are always a source of enjoyment for the ladies after living in a dorm. They also enjoy the movie room and have had some great conversation, while enjoy that space. Our gamers in enjoy pool table and other board games the house has available. Having time away from technology is important and the comforts of the house makes it easy to leave technology at home for a weekend.

Thank you again for allowing us this time away from campus and to have our annual retreat. We hope that we will be welcomed back next year, where another group of women will be allowed the opportunity to experience what we have. The house is like magic to a broken spirit.

Thanks you both again for the many years of hosting our group!

Our Family Reunion 2017

  • 5 of 5

We just celebrated our 62nd wedding anniversary, so we wanted a family reunion. The Glen was perfect in every respect for ages 3 to 85! The Glen is beautiful, functional and well furnished! I don't remember a person saying- "I wish we had???" The only negative words I heard was on Saturday morning- "Do we have to leave today!!"

One of our family members came from RI on Saturday and left on Tuesday because of work. On Wednesday afternoon she said, what am I doing in RI, and drove back to the Glen for the rest of the week.

I think that says it all!

CWE family of 15 loving it!!

  • 5 of 5

Just arrived back in StL from an amazing vacation with 15 family members at the Glen House on the Sunday River. None of us had ever been to Maine and all of us can't wait to go back. Booking now for next year. The Glen House was amazing and enjoyed by all ages from 9-71!! There is so much to do in the house alone so a few rainy days mattered not at all!! The view from the deck is incredible and the mountains and skies are constantly changing their hues. We enjoyed golf, mountain bilking, ATVing, boating, great food made in the well appointed kitchen, evenings around the fire pit on the deck, basketball, movies, hot tubs and so much more. There is nothing missing at the Glen House. Your family will love as much as mine!! It is clean, well though out and the location is spot on!! Make your reservations now!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Glen House is an amazing combination of elegance and comfort in a beautiful setting! Our family of 22, ages 4 months to almost 68 years, enjoyed a fabulous week here, whether we chose to be lazy and hang out on the premises only or travel about exploring. The kitchen was equipped with every imaginable need and then plenty extra. Thank you to Gretchen and Kris for such a wonderful place to vacation!

Car: recommended

Located in the Mountains of Western Maine in Newry at the Sunday River Resort, the house is in the perfect location for your large winter ski retreat or summer family reunion. In the winter, the Sunday River trolley will pick you up right at the driveway and take you to some of the best skiing in the East. Or just sled, cross country ski or snow shoe right out your front door! Within an hour you can explore 5 other great ski resorts as well! In the summer, fully enjoy the large heated pool, the Sunday River Golf club, white water rafting, canoeing and a host of outdoor activities. In fact, Bethel was just named # 9 of the top 101 Best Outdoor Towns in the country.

Golf: Commanding the most outstanding views the course offers, the 3-acre Estate is perfectly and privately situated along the entire 1st hole of the new Robert Trent Jones Sunday River Golf Club course, where you will share our membership privileges, with discounted green fees. Travel & Leisure Golf named Sunday River Golf Club as one of the Top Ten Best New Courses of 2005, Golf Week named it the #1 course in Maine and it was one of only 8 courses worldwide to make the list in The Robb Report's annual 'Best of the Best' issue published for 2006-- and all less than a year after opening!

Nearby you will also enjoy the Bethel Inn and Country Club Championship Golf Course, the Sugar-loaf course and loads more.

Ski: Out front door at the Glen house you will find yourself in your own private winter playground. The best sledding anywhere awaits you on the hilly golf course property that is now your private front yard. Enjoy snow shoeing or create your own cross country ski tracks with the Jordan slopes and White Cap mountain as your back drop. When you are ready to hit the slopes, the Sunday River Trolley Will Pick You Up Right At The End Of The Driveway! At the end of the day, enjoy a cup of hot chocolate gathered with the children around the gas fire pit on the deck, cheer on your favorite football team from the hot tub with a beer from the bar, or curl up on the couch with a blanket, glass of wine, good friends' conversation and a roaring fire.

Named “the greatest ski town in the universe” by Ski Magazine, the Bethel area offers skiing and snowboarding at Sunday River Ski Resort, Mt. Abram Family Resort, and Black Mountain of Maine.
