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 and Victoria are great hosts and are very responsive to questions. Their space is marvelously unique and deafeningly quiet. Until Theo meets you at the door! Truly, a gem Airbnb in a great location.

There was outdoor space on the deck which we loved, along with the smell of the pine trees. There is plenty of space inside with everything needed for a nice getaway. The mountains in the area are truly lovely & the town is beautiful. Our accommodations were comfortable, & pri…

Bruce and Victoria's place is quiet, clean, and very cozy. It is perfect for nature lovers and for those who are looking for a quiet getaway from the city. The hosts are kind and thoughtful (and are very easy to reach). Would love to visit again.

Bruce and Victoria and their dog Theo gave us a warm welcome. We had everything that we could have hoped for to enjoy the tranquility amongst the trees in the fresh mountain air. We are not car people, so we were hesitant to make the 4+ hour drive, but now we know that it was wor…

Very accommodating. Bruce stopped by and said hello. Very friendly and informed me about the place and what to do once again. I recommend it for anyone stopping by in the nice area.
