Favorite
Share
Historic country lodge in Maine's beautiful western mountains with private swimming pond and beach on property, close to lakes, streams and mountains. Nearby world-class fishing (Rapid River, Magalloway, Kennebago, Androscoggin & Swift Rivers, Rangeley & Richardson Lakes), golfing (Bethel Inn & Sunday River), and ski areas (Sunday River, Saddleback, Mt. Abram, Black Mountain). Magnificent setting with broad lawns and pastures overlooking mountain valley in the northern end of the Mahoosuc range. Pond & river on property. Trails on property and access to Appalachian Trail and many hikes for varied skill levels. Plentiful outdoor activities: swim, boat, fish (stocked pond, great fishing throughout the area including some of the nation's most pristine wild trout waters), hike, bike, ride, berry pick, you name it. Nearby Bethel Recreation Area & Sunday River golf and ski resorts. 3 hours from Boston. This is a truly unique location - comfortable and gorgeous with deep history in a friendly old-New England town. Built in 1792 by the first homesteading settler in the valley; renovated in the late 1800s at the peak of the railroad era into a private summer retreat with design contributions by Stanford White and Frederick Law Olmsted. Wonderful interiors including breathtaking Great Hall, several salons, Grand Dining Room. Long views that defy words.
