Bethel at its best

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Fabulous property. Outstanding hosts. Large kitchen let a full house "eat in" most meals. Game room kept the grand kids and the young at heart engaged. Everything was as stated and owner promptly answered all questions. Recommended without reservation for a great summer vacation.

Beautiful lodge with room to spare for large families. It helped provide wonderful memories!

  • 5 of 5

This lodge is a beautiful home. I use the word HOME because it truly felt like it. From the minute we drove up the driveway we felt total bliss and comfort. We felt right at home and were amazed at the structure, layout, amenities and size of the lodge. Most importantly, the level of cleanliness throughout the entire house was amazing. We didn't expect it to be exactly like it was in the pictures because sometimes pictures are mocked up but this was not the case. You get exactly what you pay for. I would say even though the entire house is beautiful you'll spend most of your time in the game room because it offers so much room and has entertainment for all ages. My family and I couldn't have been any happier with our stay. We only wish we could've stayed longer. I'm extremely grateful that Eric, Jen and Lynn were so flexible and easy to work with. They have a wonderful home and I'm happy they were able to share it's beauty with my family. I highly recommend this property and look forward to staying over again in the future.

Wonderful weekend with friends at an awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

The Forest Drive Lodge was a great place to spend the weekend with friends, we were a group of 12 and had more than enough room to spread out. The place was clean and comfortable and went beyond our expectations with the game room, pool table and hot tub. Everyone had a great time and the proximity to Sunday River was perfect. Would come back here to stay any time!

Perfect house for a family break

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay for a winter ski weekend with our extended family. The house was perfect for us with a comfortable bed for everyone--grandparents, parents, three teenagers and five children. The decor was charming and homey. We will be back for sure!!

Even better than we expected

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a birthday weekend with two other couples. We had a wonderful time. The house was clean, everything was in working order, and it was much bigger than it looks. Lynn was very easy to work with, and she went above and beyond to make sure they took great care of us. We'll certainly be returning to this home on future Sunday River trips.
