A true vacation home
Gretchen has thought of everything to make the Glen House the perfect location for a great vacation. We had 4 families, some skiers, some dog sledders, some hanger-outers. Glen House accommodated all of us. There was plenty of room to be alone and do your own thing, yet the kitchen and dining room were large enough for us to have group breakfasts and dinners. Our teens even got in a good game of hide and seek. It was awesome! Would highly recommend for all seasons.
Gorgeous, luxurious, clean, comfortable
I traveled with 15 coworkers to stay at Glen House for a laboratory retreat. This was our second year in a row having our retreat at Glen House since we loved it so much the first time. It is very comfortable, with all of the amenities a group could possibly want. Gretchen was flexible with our requests and did everything to make our time there as enjoyable as possible. I would highly recommend this house!
World Class Home
Being from Ireland, we love to travel and visit new places. We have stayed in all kinds of wonderful homes and boutique accommodations over the years. The Glen House is our new favorite! It was large enough to comfortably accommodate our diverse stateside family, while still giving everyone plenty of space and entertainment options. We had a grand time skiing and enjoying the town, but there was so much to do right at the house, that it was often difficult to leave. The game room was a delight for all ages (the little ones were pretty amazed at grandpa's basketball skills!). Many hours were spent in there with the foosball, table tennis, shuffleboard, arcade, etc. The hot tub and sauna were also much enjoyed, especially by me! I believe there was always popcorn a movie showing in the theater (which was simply WOW!). The owner, Gretchen, was a super helpful host from start to finish with the planning process, which isn't always easy with such a large family. She recommended activities (there are lots of options such as shows and outdoor recreation) and the in house masseuse (fabulous), had the house stocked with food and drinks for our arrival, and kept in touch with us via text message throughout our stay to ensure things went well. The one time we called with a question, she answered immediately. The house is incredibly well stocked and the kitchen is a chef's dream. They have really thought of everything! We used the sleds and snowshoes and roasted marshmallows over the fire on the deck (what a view!). Simply put, the Glen House is a superb, world class venue that we can't wait to visit again!
Perfect for our companies Winter outing!
The Glen House was perfect for our companies Winter outing. It easily accommodated 16 people, with plenty of room left over. The bedrooms were comfortable and most have en-suite which is ideal.
The house is very close to Sunday River, a good spa, and plenty of bars, restaurants and shops. We spent all our evenings in the house as there is so much to keep people of all ages occupied. On the Saturday night we had a fantastic dinner cooked in the house by edesia private chef service. We also used the pool table, hot tub and cinema room which led to a night of fun with the karaoke system. Aside from all the things you could do, just relaxing with a coffee and enjoying the great views over the golf course and surrounding mountains was a good way to spend some time.
The management of this property is top notch. Planning the trip was made very easy by the amount of information provided by the owners, and they were very responsive whenever I reached out with any questions. This is a very impressive property and the reactions of everyone as they arrived confirmed we had made the right choice. We would definitely come back to the Glen House, and also recommend it to anyone looking for a great place for a getaway.
10 years and counting!
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
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!
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.
