    What a beautiful, clean place! The view, the space, it was perfect for our family. Such a lovely home with all the amenities needed, privacy and the view, priceless. My 9 year old daughter loved the arcade and relaxing by the swing. Beautiful, clean and just gorgeous inside and outside. We are definitely booking again! My family and I were able to spread out and relax! Great experience, thank you Chris for answering my questions so fast 😊. Again, what a beautiful home! Thanks, Mara

    We had a blast away from home/work! So much to do in the house to keep you entertained (that was what was so appealing with the unknown of covid during booking). Also explored nearby and visited some cute breweries! Owners were super helpful and check in was seamless!

    This was a very clean, cozy & beautifully decorated home that our family enjoyed. It’s very well set up with the game room in the basement, fireplace on the main floor and hot tub on the deck. The homeowners were also very responsive to our questions. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you for a great experience.

    The Gingerbread - My favorite vacation rental of all time!

    This was by far the best vacation house we ever rented! The Gingerbread House was both spacious and cozy and the layout was perfect for our group. The space was decorated with a real designer's eye. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and the basement game room/hangout space, bar area and hot tub were great to come home to after a fun day on the slopes. The owners were super responsive and very easy to work with. We would be thrilled to rent this house again.

    We stayed for a week with our small children (7, 5, and 3) and there was plenty of warm, inviting space for all! The kids and grownups loved the arcade game, pool table, and board games! A soak in the hot tub after skiing was amazing. The kids also loved their room with the high vaulted ceiling, cozy beds and calm lighting. The master has a great window with beautiful views of the hillside in the back. I also appreciated all the charming and fun decor that reminded you of Sunday River and your surroundings, but didn’t feel overwhelming or cluttered. The mud room was also super functional for a family of 5 to get in and out of ski gear and stay organized! Our hosts also left us a wonderful smelling candle they made themselves, which will remind us of our great trip to the Gingerbread House. Thanks for a great stay and we can’t wait to come back!

    Very comfortable home, bedrooms are nice, baths are average. Fireplace is gas & very warm. Kitchen fully stocked, game room stocked with lots of fun games. Internet good. 15min to Sunday River. No garage or covered parking & driveway very icy. Hot tub is average quality & uses chemicals not ozone. Decor is cool, but tons of knick knacks so you’ll have to tuck some stuff away if you have younger kids. Very cool spot for 1-2 families

    Beautiful, comfortable house for a couple, our two 20-something sons and the girlfriend of one of them. Finished basement with pool table, large couch and big screen TV, in addition to LR with beautiful view and another TV, made for enough room to spread out. The hot tub was particularly welcome. Extremely well located to Carter's cross-country skiing, Bethel Village and Sunday River. Chris, the host, was a pleasure to work with and helped make a vacation during a pandemic painless with his well equipped house. We brought all our food for the week and enjoyed the great outdoors and hanging out at home.

    The property is actually more amazing in person than the pictures convey. Unfortunately we arrived during a significant wind storm. Power and water were out. We stayed one night thanks to candlelight and great gas fireplace. We had to truncate our stay however as the power didn’t return. The owner Chris was amazingly helpful, considerate and understanding. We can’t wait to return, with power next time! Really an amazing get away with a great owner.

    My husband and I, our four teenagers, and four of their friends stayed here for a week in July. The house was spacious and clean, the beds were comfortable, and there were more bathrooms than we knew what to do with (we only have one at home). The kids loved the media room downstairs. It was a short drive to a number of swimming holes, hiking trails, and waterfalls. Internet and phone service were spotty but we expected that, being in the middle of the woods in Maine. Hope to be back next summer.

    My 3 sisters and I rented this home for our annual mother daughter weekend. We all agreed It was by far the best home we have rented. The decor is so unique and well done, Pictures do not do it justice. Home is well stocked with everything you would want. Beds very comfortable. It is short drive into Bethel. We spent most of our time at house - Enjoying pac man (my daughter’s favorite as a child) playing pool, meditation session on beautiful deck, enjoying hot tub, it was truly a relaxing getaway. With 8 women the 4 bathrooms was a real treat. Chris and Adam were very good to deal with and responded quickly when we had question. I would highly recommend property you will not be disappointed.
