About Anne Wheeler
As a native Texan, my first visit to Maine was in the fall in the late 1980's. I was fortunate enough to stay with friends on Howard Pond and I fell in love with the place. For several years, I would return in the fall to this place that literally restored my soul... walking in the woods, listening to the loons and being surrounded by nature...very different from my 'city life' in Austin, Texas. One year when I got off the plane in Portland, I wondered to myself if I could possibly find a place of my own in this part of the world. It took a couple of years to find the land, hire the builder and take on such a project long distance. In 1995 construction was complete and I walked into the House on the Hill and fell in love all over again. Please be my guest..enjoy skiing and snowboarding at Sunday River, skating on the pond, walking in the woods or swimming and fishing in the summer or just relaxing by the fire or rocking away the hours on the porch.
Anne Wheeler purchased this House in 1995
What makes this House unique
I love to walk in the woods in every season of the year. In the fall, I am convinced that there is no more spectacular fall folage anywhere in the world than in the Western Mountains of Maine on Howard Pond. It is great fun to have this house as a base and travel around the state and into New Hampshire and Vermont for day trips or take a couple of days and travel to the Maine coast. There are great skiing, hiking, canoeing, biking and antiquing adventures within minutes of the house. And, of course, swimming in the pond in the summer. When the pond freezes, it is great fun to skate on that open frozen expanse of water. And, there is nothing like snowshoeing in the woods or on the trails at Sunday River or the Bethel Inn and Country Club where you can also cross-country ski. My family loves the friendly and relaxed atmosphere at on the mountain. Bethel is truly a quaint New England village and has some lovely places to dine. The area is noted for the many hiking trails from level walking trails to the challenging terrain. The House on the Hill is a perfect spot to embark on an adventure or to retreat and curl up with a book.
