The Bear River Cabin is the most spectacular vacation rental in Western Maine.  A large, new, western style log cabin located on 57 dramatic and secluded acres on scenic Route 26 in Newry, Maine, it is the perfect four season vacation rental for downhill and cross country skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, ice skating, hiking, fishing, boating, sightseeing and just plain old relaxing. 

A three hour ride from Boston, it is approximately 10 minutes from both the Sunday River Ski Resort and the scenic town of Bethel; 5 minutes from the Androscoggin River; and 5 minutes from scenic Grafton Notch State Park.  It has direct access to the Maine Interconnected Trail system (ITS84) for hiking, snowmobiling and cross country skiing and is directly across from the trail head to the 17 mile Grafton Loop Trail which connects to the Appalachian Mountain Trail.

The Bear River, the primary drainage system for the Mahoosuc Mountain Range, flows for almost 2,000 feet through the property, providing unparalleled water views as well as fishing (rainbow and brook trout) and swimming opportunities.  A large, natural pool in the river, located only steps from the Cabin was once the town’s unofficial swimming hole.  The pool is over 40 feet wide and 60 feet long and up to 12 feet deep with a smooth granite bottom and is perfect for a hot afternoon dip.  Just up from the river is an area that fills with water in the winter and turns into a skating pond when frozen. 

If you’re looking for a true Maine experience rather than a vacation rental in a subdivision you’ll fall in love with the Bear River Cabin - a million dollar Cabin on a million dollar site.

The Cabin is sited on slopping terrain, is reached by a bridge over the river, and has panoramic views of the river, the 3,300 foot Puzzle Mountain, as well as other mountains forming the Bear River Valley.  The Cabin is brand new and will be available for the first time as a vacation rental in the fall of 2006. 

It has over 5,000 square feet of livable space, including three very large bedrooms (two with cathedral ceilings); four and one-half baths (the master with Jacuzzi tub); a cathedral ceiling Great Room with a spectacular 21 foot fieldstone fireplace (gas); adjoining large gourmet kitchen featuring stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and a large peninsula; a large dining area capable of seating ten or more; a large loft overlooking the Great Room; 5 sliding doors leading to a 1,000 square foot deck with hot tub; a large basement entertainment area containing a four-sided gas fireplace, 16’ bar,  pool table, piano and entertainment center; and a two car, heated garage,

Built of Douglas fir logs, from 13 to 17 inches in diameter that were imported from British Colombia, the Cabin was designed and finished with over 8,000 square feet of pine ceilings and a dramatic pitched roof that includes four large gables and four dormers.  A computerized radiant heating system installed beneath the floors throughout the Cabin (including the garage) insures that our guests will always be comfortable and will be able to walk around the Cabin in their stocking feet, regardless of the outside temperature.  The Cabin has wireless DSL Internet capabilities, Direct TV, and an entertainment system featuring 37 strategically located Bose speakers,  

In short, the Bear River Cabin’s design, layout, amenities and spectacular site sets a new standard for luxurious, year-round, country vacation rental in Maine.
