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.
Please leave the apartment as you found it: clean and neat. Since we do not charge a cleaning fee, we ask that you strip the beds and wash all dishes as well as wipe down the counters. There is a vacuum cleaner in one of the closets to clean up if needed.
IMPORTANT: we are on a septic system, so PLEASE do not pour any cooking grease or food scraps down the drain and nothing but toilet paper in the bowl.
I am a retired university professor and a well-published and recognized poet. My wife is a fine jeweler, working in silver and gold, but also she is a real rock hound and loves creating settings for the stones she finds. Together we have five children and four granddaughters. I am an avid fly fisherman and Red Sox fan. We love to travel, meet new people and learn about other cultures. We have traveled extensively and just returned from Iceland where we used Air BnB for all our over-night accommodations.
