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.

Guest Reviews

This house is amazing! We came to Bethel for our daughter’s wedding and stayed at this beautifully appointed home. You couldn’t have asked for a better setting to bring the family together to celebrate this important occasion.

We were welcomed with a beautiful basket in celebration of the bride and groom filled with locally produced sweets and breakfast items. The basket itself was a labor of love.

The house was immaculate. It was incredibly well-stocked and totally organized. It was as though I was in my own home. If you went to look for something, it was always where you expected it to be. Not a detail was missed.

Every bedroom had a separate bath and each one was stocked with pretty towels and top-of-the-line amenities, including nice robes. In each bedroom, there was a multi-port charging station on the bedside table, a thoughtful touch that was appreciated. The bedding was soft and cozy. Almost every room had a fan.

The bridal suite was over-the-top. The dressing area had tons of lighting, a make-up table, and 3 salon chairs for hair and make-up. The bedroom was enormous and so pretty which made a pretty setting for the bride and bridesmaid photo shoot!

There was a ton of room for us to spread out and lounge between the living room, family room, office, and recreational area. We arrived on Wednesday for a weekend wedding and a few of us had to work. The space allowed for us to find a quiet spot to take calls and set up our laptops. The internet worked perfectly.

The cook’s kitchen had everything you could ever need to entertain a large group. After a few days with 2 dishwashers in the kitchen, I am not sure how I ever got along with just one at home. Every pot, pan, and appliance you can think of was easily found in a cabinet or drawer. The dishes, glasses, pots, pans, and serving pieces were abundant and beautiful. No mismatched tag sale items anywhere to be found.

The “kids” took advantage of the rec room and enjoyed some pretty vigorous foosball, air hockey, and ping pong. Young or old, there was something to entertain.

It was a wedding event-filled October weekend so we never had a chance to hang in the hot tub. But, we loved the house so much we want to return!

Thank you John & Cynthia for sharing your perfect home with us.

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.
