15 Minutes to Sunday River and 5 minutes to Mt. Abram just up the road. Cross-country ski from your front door across Twitchell Pond! Quiet location yet very easy access to all local ski areas. Beautiful views from the fireside and all windows.
Private and yet very accessible to all recreational activities from Bethel, to the White Mountains, to North Conway, NH and especially to Route 113 in Gilead, Maine, abundant with hiking and biking trails, but most of all, enjoy the cry of the loons right at your front door, the unbelievable wildlife of the pond, and the woodland area adjacent to the cabin, and the remote feeling of this private, well-equipped cedar log cabin. Superb, unobstructed views of the entire lake and local mountains from the comfortable living room furniture, the dining room area and kitchen area-- several large windows actually facing the waterfront. You really get the feeling of being on a lake boat right from your front door. Or just walk across to the pond and enjoy the full use of the waterfront dock, the canoe, the row boat, the kayak available for summer fun. Wintertime activities abound right from your front door--cross-country just across the road on the lake, or ice fish just a few steps from the driveway. Two mountain bikes and one road bike are available for use on the quiet country road which goes on and on forever affording further lake views with very few houses or camps to obstruct the view or impede a quiet bike ride to nowhere. Visit 'in-by-inch' farm in the middle of nowhere just about 3 miles down the road. Moreover, NO IMMEDIATE NEARBY NEIGHBORS. Absolute quiet, peace and guaranteed relaxation from the deck, dock, back and side yards of the cabin. Review the comments made by quests who were pleasantly surprised to find such an affordable and private get-away.
This immaculate, fully-furnished log home has WONDERFUL views of the lake, cliffs and mountains from every living room window, but especially from the 18-foot dock, the deck overlooking the water, and from the enclosed sun porch. The home comes with three boats, a 17-foot canoe, a 14-foot row boat, and a kayak, extra floats, water toys, and life-jackets and three bikes w/o helmets--one ten-speed and two mountain bikes. Outside furnishings include a grill, patio/deck and sun porch furniture, lawn/beach chairs on the open deck and on the enclosed, screened-in sun porch. There is a public beach area for local residents and guests just a short way down the road, but swim, fish and beach right from the log cabin's 350' of private shore front directly across the quiet, country road, sandy and pebbly, clean, clear water and perfect for all diving and all activities. the fishing and swimming and diving are excellent. Enjoy the local color in Bethel's restaurants, from Chinese to quaint cafes and recreate in nearby White Mts., N. Conway, NH, and Grafton Notch with waterfalls, hiking and biking and kayaking. the area lends itself to just about every outside activity imaginable. but enjoy the peace and quiet of the cabin and the waterfowl and wildlife right from the deck of this lovely home.
There is a boat slip with sandy beach bottom just down the road from the house if bringing your own speedboat. Jet skis are not allowed.
The fully-equipped, brand new kitchen has crackling hickory cabinets, hunter green counters, and hardwood floors throughout. It adjoins a tastefully furnished open dining and living area with hardwood floors and lots of windows providing great views of the entire lake--you actually feel like you are on a boat from nearly every window.
The first floor also has two good-sized bedrooms, completely and tastefully furnished, both with partial views of the lake and mountains. The expansive upstairs is perfect for children and provides one double and two single beds and plenty of playing areas. The home comes complete with a washer and dryer in the basement and a full, modern bath on the first floor.
Sip morning coffee on the deck or sun porch or right on the dock overlooking the lake and enjoy the cry of the loons.
Don't feed the friendly ducks who waddle from the lake across the country road to the driveway begging for handouts, though. There are lawns on either side, lawn furniture and grills, gas and a small char. The home offers GUARANTEED privacy, peacefulness, and comfort from every area. There are no other houses within view or near the cabin, nearly last on the lake. The country road which goes between the house and the lake goes nowhere for miles and miles and is perfectly safe for bicycling, walking or hiking. Twitchell Pond is good-sized, clear, clean and private. The fishing is just fine.
The area is great for all outside activities. It is available anytime, any season--with reasonable rates during peak times, and bargain rates during off-season.
The cabin is located in Greenwood, Maine, on Twitchell Pond.
