Beautiful Sunday River Maine! Get ready for the vacation of your life!
Perched high upon the beautiful Sunday River... Maine’s Powder Ridge, The Heights provides you with an extraordinary view of the majestic peaks, which comprise the Mahoosuc Mountain range and the valley beyond. Its construction just completed, The Heights is a spectacular, 7500 square foot, contemporary home with 2000 square feet of glass frontage, privately situated on five acres of woodland to maximize serenity and seclusion.
The Heights offers ten bedrooms, including six master king suites (four of which have their own private balconies) with luxury linens, a Queen bedroom, three bunk rooms, ten and a half bathrooms, two towering stone fireplaces in the vaulted living rooms, two gas fireplaces, two eight-man hot tubs (for your viewing of the fireworks at Sunday River on Saturday nights), an office complete with Computer and high speed wireless Internet access.
From Memorial Day through the end of September, we only rent the house as a whole, not divided units. This is the period of time that the pool is available as well.
During the late Fall, Winter and early Spring we can rent the units separately. The descriptions and rentals of both the Eagle's Nest and the Bobcat's Den can also be found on Homeaway.
Added Details:: The Heights is two separate units... The Eagle's Nest (HA Property ID # 101882) and The Bobcat's Den (HA Property ID #100360), which can be rented as a complete entity or independently. Its unique award-winning floor plan designed by KLM, allows for free flowing multi-level living as one full unit or two separate locked-off units with completely private entrances.
The units are completely different, yet uniquely spectacular and fully soundproofed. The goal of this design is to provide luxurious accommodations for small corporate retreats or for large family get-aways. Beautifully appointed with classy, comfortable furniture, we are targeting groups of families and executives.

Nearby are a miniature golf course, a huge water slide, shops in historic Bethel, and many restaurants and nights spots.
A great way to see western Maine is by throwing on a pair of hiking boots and just walking out the front door. One of the best spots is Grafton Notch State Park, located along the Maine-New Hampshire border, just minutes away from The Heights. The most famous footpath in the world, the Appalachian Trail, passes through the park on the way to its finish in Mt. Katahdin. Throughout the park you will see waterfalls, caves, and incredible mountain vistas.

Gorgeous house, amazing owners!
We fell in love with this house the moment we drove up!
We go on a yearly ski trip with a huge group of friends, and this house was perfect for us! The 2 houses were able to accommodate us perfectly!
The size of the rooms, the amenities, the kitchens, the grounds were gorgeous (even in winter), the views took our breath away!
Susan was over the top accommodating! If there was an issue (and there weren’t many), she was on top of it!
We can’t wait to go back, again and again!
We loved our stay here. House was big enough to accomodate 12 adults, 11kids and a dog with room to spare. It was well stocked with utensils and multiple appliances. Hot tub was good as well.
Large home with lots of amenities
This property is big with lots of amenities .we went with a fairly large group and there was plenty of space in the house for us all ,at times we could not find each other because of how big it was .we enjoyed our stay susan is great to work with she will answer any questions you have and is quick to answer any emails.we ran into a few minor problems but susan was great on fixing these problems .I would defnitly recomend this place to anyone.
This place is amazing! The best view on the mountain.
We had an amazing time staying here. The Murphys are incredibly gracious hosts. All beds were made up very comfortably and there were plenty of towels and wash clothes for all. This house has plenty of space to come together as a group and also to get away if you need some quiet time! We will definitely be back.
This was a beautiful house with a beautiful view.
Our family of 19 members really enjoyed staying in this home. The pool and pool house, the decks with the mountain view, the movie theater, the many king suite rooms, the spacious kitchens with enough room for all to have a seat.. there were no complaints. We did many excursions from the house which included Franconia in NH, Acadia National Park and also did a fishing trip with Captain Carl Bois and of course had a big fish fry that night at the house! The owners were great to work with. Just an absolutely beautiful place to visit and stay!
Wonderful home for large group
We are a group of couples that travel together. On this trip we had 6 couples. The house is huge. The main floor has large widows all around with beautiful views of he mountains. Two large kitchens, an office and multiple sitting areas make for a great area to visit. The level below has pool table, foosball, theater room and washer and dryers. Great area to hang out. The bedrooms all have baths and are arranged well for privacy. The swimming pool is beautiful and heated. Two hot tubs outside that are really nice after hiking up long hills. There is a large pool house with kitchen. The area around Bethel is beautiful. We went on several hikes. The guys golfed at several of the courses in the area. Fly fishing all around. Old wooden bridge about a mile from the home. Nice area to sit on the river. Drove in to Gorham NH and went on moose tour and visited Mt. Washington. We were there 9 nights and had a great time. You can rest or find plenty to do. There are a few maintenance issues that need attention and that is the only negative I would say. They were minor and did not interrupt our stay. The owners are easily available if needed. I would highly recommend this home and would love to visit again.
