About Mike Ferro

I first fell in love with the Sunday River area and Bethel Maine in 2014 during a ski trip getaway. When I had a chance to come back again in the early summer to do some hiking, I was amazed with how much Maine had to offer. I spent nearly two years searching for the perfect piece of land to build Vale Cabin and happened across one that offers privacy, incredible views, and is close to Bethel and Sunday River.

Mike Ferro purchased this house in 2017

Why Mike Ferro chose Bethel

In one word, the View. Vale Cabin was built to take advantage of stunning Mount Washington views while coexisting in-harmony with the land. This Energy Star Home is both eco-friendly and unbelievably comfortable no matter what season you visit so you truly can enjoy the great outdoors from within. Perched high-up off Intervale Road the home is close-to-it-all and yet private.

What makes this house unique

No detail went overlooked. Much of the material in the house is sourced from local timber, including the beautiful heavy timber stairs. And, when I couldn't find the right bathroom vanities or tables, I created them from large log slabs. Pottery Barn couches offer comfort and upscale style, while bedrooms feature ultra-comfortable hotel-quality mattresses and luxurious linens. Vale Cabin offers an incredible experience you can’t find anywhere else in the Sunday River and Bethel area.

Incredible sunset views, comfertable beds, and great kitchen for cooking

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 10 adults had a wonderful stay! Walking into the house, we found a comfortable and cozy space that has an amazing floor to ceiling view from the morning through sunset. We really enjoyed staring out the windows to see the changing scenery as the day progressed.

Our group was able to cook meals easily - everything we needed was provided. Between the hot-tub, many TVs and movie theater, books and board games, we had plenty of entertainment. The whole house audio was awesome - we had music to accompany our dinner and also by the hot tub. After our days of food and fun, we slept so well - the beds are super comfortable!

It is clear the owners have put a lot of love into this house and paid attention to details. Thank you for a great house to stay - we can't wait to stay again!

Family summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

Mike, wanted to thank you for a wonderful stay at your beautiful home. I have family that lives in Bethel so the close proximity to town was great. Love the area. The view from the large windows in the great room is fantastic. We did all the local things we love, Frenchman's Hole, Step Falls, Rock climbing, Hiking, Bike Riding.

We were a group of seven and give it a rousing 14 thumbs up

Look forward to coming back

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a week long stay at Vale Cabin and we were so impressed! The house was the perfect size for 10 of us, it was clean, well stocked with all of the essentials (and then some!), and of course, that view! The kids in the group said they want to live here! Overall, this was a great place to stay, in a great location with lots of family friendly activities nearby!

Amazing Home! Private paradise with a hot tub! Wish it was mine! Will recommend to everyone I know!

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely amazing!

We wanted a private place to spend our honeymoon, and we found it!

Beautiful new house, with all of the comforts of home.

Unbelievably clean. The bed was comfortable. Theater room was great to snuggle on the couch and watch a movie.

And the hot tub was wonderful! Beautiful view of the mountains every evening.

We can't say enough good things about our stay.

It was absolutely perfect!

Mike the owner was fantastic to work with. Excellent communication.

Just an outstanding place for the price!

We couldn't have asked for more.

If you are planning a trip to Bethel, Maine, THIS is definitely the place to stay!!!!

My girlfriend and I rented this home for a weekend getaway at the beginning of summer and we couldn’t have been happier! The home is stunning in every aspect. The views, day and night, were spectacular and the interior of the home is furnished and finished with a perfect blend of rustic Maine style and modern conveniences. We will definetly be returning!
