Bethel, Maine

Whether your next event is an enchanted wedding and reception or an action-packed ski getaway, the Thaddeus Twitchell House easily accommodates your reservation with plenty of room, comfort, and charm!

We are centrally located near New England’s finest ski resort, the beautiful majestic White Mountains for ample hiking, first-class restaurants, bespoke boutique shops, and more!

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 home has undergone a series of renovations to create its current luxury accommodations.

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. Nearby, several notable restaurants and family-friendly activities can be found.

This 4650 square foot home offers central air-conditioning in summer and features a newly updated kitchen with state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances, including an imported Italian commercial-grade stove. The historic home also features a spacious dining room, a gorgeous living room with a cozy fireplace, and seven bedrooms with private baths, including a spacious grand master bedroom suite, plus one additional bedroom with a private half bath. The property is situated on 1.6 acres with a wooded backyard and beautiful landscaping.

Due to the unique historic charm, the house is often used as a very popular destination venue to host beautiful wedding ceremonies and receptions during the spring, summer, and fall seasons. In the house, the unique, luxurious and spacious Bridal Master Suite provides brides with the perfect space to prepare for the wedding and serves as a lovely respite after the day’s celebrations. The Bridal Suite includes an attached private salon, where the bride and her attendants can prepare and primp for the wedding ceremony and reception. It allows stylists, manicurists, and beauticians to perform their services on-site to aid in preparations for your big day.

During the late fall and winter months, the home serves as a retreat for those seeking to capture the stunning rainbow hues of the fall foliage as well as the adrenaline-seeking outdoor enthusiasts who thrive on the winter sports in the Bethel area, including cross country and alpine skiing, snowmobiling, and snowboarding at the world-class Sunday River Ski Resort, as well as many other prized Northeast destinations in the surrounding region.
