Charming Great Brook Cottage

Space 950 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

Come and enjoy the charming Great Brook Cottage located approximately ten minutes from Sunday River Ski Resort, ten minutes from Bethel and four miles away from the Grafton Notch State Park.

It has two small bedrooms, a loft which we use as a sleeping den (our kids' favorite place), cozy living and dining areas. It is tastefully furnished for year round enjoyment. It also has an over-sized back porch with charcoal grill and a fire pit.

Ski at Sunday River, Mt. Abram, or Black Mountain of Maine, until you can't walk any longer, then come back and sit by the fire in the large, beautiful, stone fireplace in the center of the cottage, built with stones from the Great Brook. We supply the firewood, stacked on the front porch, and more in the shed.

Snow shoe on the property or head towards any of the mountains for a challenging adventure. One of our favorite places is Rt. 113 in Gilead (20-minute drive from the house), which is closed for traffic in Winter. Enjoy the completely frozen world alongside the Wild River.

In early Spring, listen to the Great Brook, which runs from the Puzzle Mountain, and occasionally breaks through the ice. Fish for rainbow or brook trout in the Bear river a short walk away.

Summer is a great time for kayaking or canoeing on the Androscoggin river and the Umbagog lake, mountain biking and hiking as well as golfing at the Sunday River resort.

Our house is located on the Scenic Byway (State Rt. 26) which connects with the New Hampshire Scenic Byway and passes through Grafton Notch State Park. The Bear River parallels the road for much of the way. Enjoy spectacular scenery and foliage viewing; stop by for a short hike to Screw Auger Falls and Mother Walker Falls.

So much to do, welcome to the Great Brook Cottage!

Cozy and comfortable and close to skiing

  • 5 of 5

Adorable cottage 10 min drive from Sunday River and 20 minute drive from Mt. Abrams. Had a great experience there with my family including two children 6 & 8. Loved relaxing by the fire after a fun day skiing. Exactly as advertised and owner was very accommodating. Recommend to anyone looking to spend some days in the Bethel area.

Fantastic second stay!

  • 5 of 5

Just as wonderful as we remembered it-freezing cold on the ski slopes but the wonderful fireplace at Great Brook was wonderful to come home to. Everything was clean, owner is terrific to work with, and we will return to this magical cabin!

The cabin is perfect for a ski vacation

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in the middle of a snow storm and the driveway was plowed very well. There was an ample supply of firewood for the fantastic fireplace. The only problems we had with our stay was our children fighting over who got to sleep in the loft! We loved the cabin so much my wife wants me to build one just like it on our property.

Cozy Stay

  • 4 of 5

Adorable Maine stop off at the Charming Great Brook College. We liked the proximity to a few places we wanted to explore. And was pleasantly surprised by scenic Grafton Notch State Park right up the road. The cottage itself was very clean and comfortable, and furnished with everything you could ask for. We did not have an opportunity for a fire inside or out, but there is the possibility when we plan future trips back to this cozy corner of Maine.
