A Historic Home In the Heart of the White Mountains
The Thaddeus Twitchell House is located in the historic town of Bethel and it is one of the area’s most beautifully restored landmark homes. Originally built in 1813, this unique house is often used as a very popular destination venue to host beautiful wedding ceremonies and receptions, due to its unique, historic charm. Situated halfway between Historic Bethel Village and Sunday River Ski Resort, the house is located on the Mountain Explorer route, a free service that transports residents and visitors to and from the Sunday River Resort and Bethel Village every half-hour all winter long.

From the moment we walked into this property we felt like our fairy godmother had dropped us into the perfect mansion. Rooms, rooms, and more rooms. Exquisitely decorated … old world beauty all around us … yet 100% modern. The kitchen is gorgeous. We only ate out once the whole week. Two dishwashers and a gorgeous gas stove and oven, with an oversized island. The dining room is enormous —- and we all fit around it for our dinners. Every night after skiing we had a fire and a soak in the hot tub. We each had our own robes! There’s so much space… when we first arrived we had to play Marco Polo to find each other! The best thing about our stay was they communication. They answered all our questions quickly and even were able to unlock the doors remotely for us when we entered the wrong code. We were treated like kings and queens and we are determined to come back in the summer to enjoy the pool!
Great Spot! Huge house, accommodated our large group of 4 families with ease. There was something for everyone from the hot tub to all the electronics to the great vicinity to Sunday River, breweries and restaurants. Highly recommend!
We had an amazing time at the Twitchell house over the MLK weekend. The first thing we noticed was how clean the house was, from floors to kitchen countertops, it was spotless. It has a abundance of space for a large group, fully stocked kitchen, huge dining room, working wood fireplace with unlimited amount of wood and countless bedrooms to make everyone in the group feel comfortable. The owners really care about comfort of your stay. We got a call the night we checked on and make sure everything is to our liking and that we have everything we need. it really felt like it was our home away from home. Thank you John and Cynthia for sharing your home with us. We will definitely come back!
Awesome Stay! Beautiful property. Big hot tub and cozy fireplace. Fast WiFi. Great for skiing Sunday River with a group of friends.
Great place for a group! We had a wonderful time celebrating the New Year with friends. This property is perfect for a large group. We had 18 total (8 adults & 10 kids ages 3-10) and it never felt crowded inside. The kitchen is well stocked and each bedroom has its own bathroom. Awesome to have all linens provided. The Owners were lovely, accommodating and helpful! Looking forward to our next trip already!
Thanksgiving Family Weekend. We are grandparents with 3 daughters and their families totaling 16. The kitchen and dining room accommodated all of us comfortable meals, Plenty of room to spread out. Hot tub fun, game room, tv’s, walking trails provide plenty of activity. Skiing not far away, gem museum nearby. Furnishings, colors, views all great. We loved this property.
Spacious for family gatherings! Very spacious and stocked for our large gathering since we like to cook. Lots of space to be together or not. Would be a great summer rental to utilize pool and backyard.
