The space

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.

Bruce's place is a cross between an architectural statement and a folly - it's just astonishing. Not sure why anyone would chose such a design but be glad they did - it makes for a fascinating place to stay. The accommodation is large, well-furnished, very comfortable. Location i…

Great welcome from Bruce and Victoria who were very helpful and friendly. They had stocked the fridge with breakfast goodies for next morning and even placed beer glasses in the freezer. Wifi worked well but there was no cell reception so be warned. We would love to be able to vi…
