Overall very happy about this rental. Super clean and brand new. The grounds were unfortunately not well kept but that’s not owners fault. Previous renters left broken glass, cigarettes bottles etc. I’m sure that’s already taken care of. Could have used more kitchen ware and fire pit. I think Marie is already working on this anyway. Everything else was spectacular. The cabin is amazing. Marie was wonderful. We enjoyed this very much!!
We enjoyed the Swan Hill home so much! It was just a little weekend getaway for us, but had everything we needed. It was cozy and quiet, but close enough to town that we could run down if we needed something. Plenty of space for us (we were 3 adults, 2 kids, and 2 dogs) with room to spare. Loved being able to wake up to the sun bouncing off one side and watch it set from the other.
I’ve been totally cozy is a great time
In this lovely home. Very clean, new, plenty of room and sunny. Peaceful neighborhood. Easy communication with Marcie.
We enjoyed our stay here for a three-day getaway and ski trip to Sunday River. The property was ideal for our group of 6 and could have easily fit six more. The house was clean and had everything we needed for a relaxing few days. The ski resort is only 15 minutes away which was super convenient. Also, Marcie was very responsive. I don't think I ever waited more than 10-15 mins after sending her a question before she responded. We will definitely recommend this house to others.
The house itself is very minimal, but very accommodating for a vacation home. We fit 12 people in the house without the basement addon and it was a perfect fit for a 4 night stay (bring extra toilet paper lol). The view is excellent and the rules for the house are coherent, I wouldn't want a stay in Maine any other way.
We were disappointed we couldn't use the fireplace. It should be told right up front that you are limited to the months you can use it. Not sure who messed up our reservation, but when we reserved we included ourselves and our dog and paid in full. The day before our trip, we had to pay an additional money for our dog when we already thought it was included in our up front payment. This is not something you want to hear when you are ready to leave for your trip. The home is very nice, but needs a good cleaning (i.e., bathroom exhaust fans, under beds and couch, above refrigerator, etc.). Also, a investment in a new stove would be worthwhile. Scenary/views are breathtaking.
We had a great stay in Bethel at Marcie's home. The house is very clean, and well stocked with everything you need for your stay. We liked how close it was to Bethel, as we were able to drop in and out the home with our toddler for nature walks and hikes. Yet, it was quick and easy to get back to the house for nap times, etc. We also brought our beagle, who enjoyed all the new smells up in Bethel. The views from the home are beautiful. We caught a couple windy nights, so be prepared for some howling winds at times -- being perched up so high. Only two minor complaint -- the internet (satellite internet, who knew that was a thing?!) is deathly slow, which means YouTube TV is pretty unwatchable. We were also looking forward to using the fireplace for the cold October nights, only to learn it cannot be used until Dec, which isn't noted in the listing. Marcie was very pleasant to communicate with - very responsive and answered all questions. Thanks for sharing your home with us!
Outstanding home! Mountain views go on and on. Stunning! Marcie was so easy to work with and her home is comfortable, welcoming and warm.
This was a beautiful and comfortable place to stay and exactly what we needed to relax and unwind. The view from the deck was amazing and we were lucky enough to be there as the leaves were changing. The home is also very private and in an incredibly quiet location. The owner Marie allowed us to move our initial booking in March (because of all the Covid travel restrictions) without any issues, which was greatly appreciated. The house was probably too big for the two of us but it still felt cozy. We would definitely consider booking here again next time we were in Bethel!
Great location, amazing views, friendly owner.
Marcie has a beautiful property situated on a quiet private road about 15 minutes from the mountain. The house is extremely clean and well maintained with all of the necessary amenities one might need. Marcie was very easy to communicate with during the booking process and up through to checking in. As she states in the booking, AWD is an absolute must in the winter months! We had a great stay!
This was our second time staying here and if you are looking for something off the beaten path in a quiet neighborhood, this is it. I would definitely recommend this to others.
Marcie’s home on Swan Hill made for a perfect retreat for our family for the holidays. Reasonably close to Sunday River Mtn and all of the amenities of Bethel. Our week there was wonderful! Thank you Marcie!
Everything was perfect, very nice location quite, very clean. I highly recommend this property
Amazing stay! Cabin had all the amenities we needed. The views were amazing. We would love to come back again! Cabin was extremely well kept and clean! Owner had great communication.
I had the pleasure of staying at this comfortable cabin which truly was a relaxing get away. It was cozy but still had plenty of room for many guests. We had beautiful mountain view’s from this cabin nestled in the woods. I felt it was the perfect distance from town so you can enjoy all that Bethel has to offer. I would stay here again any time.
The property is truly lovely and comfortable! Location is great - quiet and remote but still convenient.
We loved our stay at this beautiful and cozy cabin. There was plenty of room for me and my husband and our 3 kids plus my parents. Sunday River was a quick drive up the road for skiing. It was warm enough to sit on the deck with a glass of wine and watch the gorgeous sunset over the mountains. We hope to be back for a ski vacation next season!
It’s a great house in a great location. Not too far from Sunday River. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you!
The house and location was beautiful. You do need at lease an all wheel drive to get up the hill. The house was comfortable and had everything we needed. We did think it was going to be a private house, but the owner has an apartment downstairs.
Wonderful home in a great location. Everything was perfect, and we could not have asked for a better place to spend school vacation week. Looking forward to returning again in the future!
We stayed over MLK weekend and had a great time. The views are amazing and you can actually see a bit of Sunday River from the back deck. While we were there, it snowed over 18 and the kids had a great time building forts in the backyard. As for the cabin, it is very new and well designed. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a meal and there's a cozy sectional in front of the fireplace, where we mainly hung out. The owner is very responsive and I would highly recommend this to others.
The house is wonderful: welcoming and cozy. I am the Mom and was hosting 4 20 somethings. I called the master bedroom on the first floor ( large and comfy) and left the 2nd floor to the kids. They had plenty of room and their own space. But the reality is that everyone hung out on the first floor - table for games, great eating space (lots of eating) and comfy couches for lounging. We skied each day at Sunday River and couldn't wait to get back to the house to relax, and did I say eat. As for the Owner, Marcie was quick to respond to my questions and couldn't have been nicer. I will definitely be back.
Pretty much everything is provided. Gas fireplace a huge hit! Owner even had a Christmas tree set up! Lovely place.
There simply are no words to describe the serenity of this location. Gorgeous cabin; very quiet location; incredible light on the mountains at both sunrise and set; miles of roads for walking; a million gorgeous views; wildlife sightings; a gracious host; a perfectly clean home with every single amenity anyone could ask for. You have to see it to believe it. If I hadn’t just left, I’d think it was too good to be real, but it was very real....we have the memories and pictures to prove it. Thank you Marcie!!!
This cabin could not be more perfect. It is brand new in a beautiful peaceful setting. It is stocked with about everything you could need. My family and I enjoyed it very much.
First off, this home is absolutely immaculate. First impression is that you’re walking into a model or staged home. The view from the deck is unbeatable. Location is close enough to town if you need to grab something, but far enough away that you get that feeling of seclusion and privacy. White Mountain trails are within a 45 minute drive if you want to go on a good hike. I was here in the summer so I can’t tell you what it’s like in the winter, but it is close to Sunday river and all that it has to offer. Marcie was a great host who made sure the house was ready for us and responds quickly to messages. Highly recommend and would definitely return!
First of all, thank you Marcie for being a great host! You went out of your way to reassure us that the house was indeed real (since there weren’t any reviews yet at the time we booked). The gesture was much appreciated. Beyond that, there were some cookies waiting for us upon arrival and thorough instructions for the WiFi, TV, etc. The decor was adorable (the bear on a motorcycle was our son’s favorite!) and the furnishings so comfy. Just walking through the house, it was obvious that Marcie had thought of everything to make her guests comfortable - right down to providing 2-ply toilet paper! :-) The view from the deck is amazing, especially at sunset, and having so much green space for our dog to run was great. We had no trouble finding the house - thanks again to Marcie’s directions, and it was just a quick trip to downtown Bethel, which is cute. Overall, staying here was a great choice for our family (4 adults, 1 toddler, 1 dog), and we would definitely come back!
Brand new what could be better?
We had the most wonderful time staying in this beautiful home in Bethel. We live on the coast of Maine, but love going to the mountains for a quick getaway. This home was perfect and Marcie was an amazing host. We will definitely be back with our snow shoes in the winter!
What a beautiful cabin. Impeccably furnished and decorated. So very relaxing and quiet. Marcie did a wonderful job. She is such a nice person and very helpful. We enjoyed the mountain roads to nearby places and would highly recommend this vacation getaway. Love it, can't wait to go back.
