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!
