Fantastic House!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific stay in the log cabin this past weekend. It had just about everything that we need for our stay. It was great that the teenagers were able to stay in the lower level and talk as loud as they wanted and they never bothered us adults. We were able to hang out by the fireplace and relax after spending the day at Sunday River for Parrot Weekend. The fresh snow on Friday night was a pleasant surprise too! We will be back next year to do it again/

Amazing location, exceptional stay, and not too far from Sunday River.

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the River Ridge Lodge was fantastic. My group was 8 adults total and we still had so much space that we did not use in the house. This house has a great sauna, hot tub, and other amenities that provide convenience and comfort. I highly recommend staying here, the booking process was pretty seamless and the response rate was about as great as I expected!

This is the perfect ski house for any large group! Plenty of amenities and BRs. Game room is a blast

  • 5 of 5

If I return to Sunday River this is where I will be staying! The place is huge, fun, secluded, and loaded with things to do! Do not pass up this house for any large group of friends or a big family!

Perfect Winter Wonderland Escape

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at the River Ridge Lodge was simply wonderful. This vacation home is absolutely beautiful and is obviously lovingly cared for by its owners. The house itself is very large with five bedrooms and three floors of living space. It is privately set back off the road in a lovely tucked away neighborhood. We were looking for a place to relax as a family and enjoy skiing and all the area has to offer before the holidays - and this home was perfect. The house is very well equipped with everything you would need and the instructions were very clear for arrival/departure. We feel very fortunate that the owners, Jen and Eric, share this relaxing spot with others. A little slice of Bethel paradise....

Great Stay

Everything about the place was just like it was describe! Great location as well close to attractions, we did the snowmobiling which was a blast! Would definitely see us using this location in the future, and the owners made the entire rental process a breeze!

The perfect place for our family Thanksgiving homecoming!

  • 4 of 5

Everything was perfect! Most items we needed were on hand. Lots of space for a big family. Thank you so much for the supply of firewood--made the place real cozy.

The only 2 concerns I had were the fact that the river was not in view of the lodge; although not clearly stated in the description that there was a view, the photos and the name of the lodge suggest a river within sight; the river was a short walk and beautiful, but nevertheless disappointing that the property was not on the river.

The other concern and the reason I wouldn't come back is the requirement that I list mine and my guests names and dates of birth. I've been renting properties for over 30 years and never have heard of such a thing nor was there a reason given; too much of an invasion of privacy and now I'm not sure how that data will be used; I am not paranoid, but a couple family members have had their identity stolen and am concerned about why this info is needed and how it is used. It wasn't enough to give names and ages; again I would do that but reluctantly, but to require dates of birth is very disturbing. Had I known this in advance I would have declined the booking; I didn't know of this until after my deposit was paid and I didn't want to lose a substantial deposit.

Owner's Response: I'm happy to hear you thought the house was perfect. To address the issues you spoke of: First, nowhere in our description does it say the house is located on the water. It actually says..... ""Set back off the road on a beautifully wooded 2 acre lot" ... it goes on to say " Lodge is a five bedroom log-sided house nestled in the woods of Bethel, with "access" to the Androscoggin River. The location map provided on our website shows clearly that the River is across the street from the house. We do have one picture showing the river which is there because people always ask the type (size, depth, safety etc) of river..... so we added a picture to show this. I am sorry you mistook this as being misleading. However, I am glad that you agree that it was an easy short walk to the river access. Secondly, as a homeowner of a property, it is important that you know who is staying at your house. We have been mislead many times by parents renting our home for their teenage/young adult children and lie about who will be staying in the house. We were actually advised years ago by the local police, that if there was ever an issue at the house that they would contact us and we would need to provide exactly who was staying at the house. In fact, we never stated nor is it listed that it is a requirement to rent the house. However, had you just asked, we could have waived this part of your contract. We have had renters in the past voice their concern of giving us date of births and we have accommodated them. I would like to note, contrary to your statement, you did not provide complete date of births for 9 out of your 13 of guests on your contract and we made no issue. You also spoke to the possibility of losing your deposit. We at no time indicated that you would lose your deposit over this issue or any other. Thanks again, for choosing to stay with us.
