Very clean and bright fully-equipped apartment just up the hill from the historic village of Bethel. Private bath and comfortable, real bed for two adults, plus a fold-out couch and chair for small children or teens. Plenty of privacy on your own deck surrounded by trees, lots of hot water in the shower/tub, and a flat-screen Direct TV to watch the Red Sox and an ipod dock to listen to your own tunes. An hour away from the ocean and in the middle of the best leaf-peeping in the northeast, not to mention the fine dining at the many village inns. Our street Paradise Road lives up to its name: quiet, tree-lined, and picturesque with beautiful views of the mountains with their numerous hiking trails. Come to fly fish, play golf, rent a canoe or kayak for the many rivers and ponds all around. We are also only a short distance from the Appalachian Trail where some of our guests have hiked it a section at a time.
"Just the gem you want to end up in at the end of your day."
Bruce and Victoria have hit the nail on the head. With their experience staying in International AirBNB's they have put into operation just the appropriate setting for others to travel through their state of Maine. A genuine sigh of relief was my husband and my first impression.
Thank you Bruce and Victoria for offering your space to the world.

This beautiful gem of an apartment is set in a stunning location amid peaceful woodland surroundings just a short distance from the town of Bethel. Although our schedules didn't allow for us to meet Bruce and Victoria in person, their hospitality and warmth was apparent both in their email communication, as well as in the little touches in the apartment. For example; our personalized welcome note and the porch light being left on for us upon our arrival ; the thoughtful provision of milk,bread, eggs, tea and coffee in the kitchen, and an array of literature and information about Bethel and the surrounding area, from which we planned a scenic route home through the state park.
The apartment is wonderfully equipped, tastefully decorated and quite luxurious. We especially loved the deck which opened out onto woodland and the cosy sitting room area. The peace and quiet both inside and out is remarkable, this truly is a place to escape from it all!
In addition, nearby Bethel is charming with a great community feel, we enjoyed a lovely meal and visited a local bar, both of which were vibrant and welcoming. Our only regret on this whole trip is that we couldn't stay for longer !
We had a great time in Bethel. Lovely surroundings and a great host and apartment. They even left some basic breakfast items in the fridge so you don't starve the first morning. The apartment is very clean, private and close to 'downtown' Bethel. We really enjoyed our stay here. And thanks for the great sightseeing tips!
Bruce and Victoria are very nice and friendly hosts! Their apartment is just great: spacious, clean & comfortable ! It is definitely worth to stay in Bethel and to enjoy this charming, cozy lodging Even tough we had a short stay we did really enjoy it and can highly recommend it!
This apartment is on Paradise Hill Road and it is like a paradise. So quiet and peacefull. You get the whole apartment for yourself, so you feel right at home. Bruce and Victoria are great hosts, we were also invited to their private home for a morning coffee and had a great chat together. We highly recommend this apartment.
Bruce was very nice and try to accommodate our stay. The place was very clean, and spacious. I went there during my fall foiage trip and I am very happy that I stay at his place. The paradise road really deserve its name. I would recommend this place to anyone who want to spend time in the mountain part of Maine.
Really homely apartment fully equipped and comfortable. Location is really amazing and Paradise Road lives up to its name! We only met Bruce briefly but he was really friendly and a good host who really cared about our stay. We wished we had longer to chat to him and to stay in his apartment. Highly recommended.
I was blessed to spend a week in Bethel with wonderful hosts Bruce & Victoria at their aparment. It was private and very clean and efficient. Bruce & Victoria were so very nice and accomodating. We all became good friends before the week was up. They knew the area well and were eager to give tips on where to go and what to do. Bruce was kind enough to even take me fishing a few times!! I am already looking at dates to come up next year. I would highly recommend a stay there - it was everything I had hoped for and more. You will not be disappointed with the place or the hosts!!
If you are looking for a place to stay in the Bethel area, I highly recommend Bruce and Victoria's apartment. It is very quiet and private with a cozy living room, dining room, large bathroom, bedroom and well stocked kitchen. The hosts are very friendly, talented and well traveled. If you are fortunate enough to be invited for cocktail hour, you will enjoy getting to know this talented writer/poet and jeweler.
Bruce and Victoria's apartment was lovely with everything we may have needed, and they were fantastic hosts, very helpful, friendly and considerate. The area is beautiful-- Paradise Road lives up to its name. The local restaurants and sights were perfect for us, and the hiking and kayaking options around were great. We look forward to staying again in the future!
