The Mahoosuc mountain region of western Maine is an area steeped in culture and tradition, and has been turning visitors into homeowners for more than two centuries. With its rich, blended history of agriculture, the arts, and education, Bethel and the surrounding towns of the Androscoggin River valley are an escape unto themselves. Whether you visit for a quiet retreat or to enjoy the unique year-round outdoor adventures these mountains provide, western Maine offers a community like none other.
People flock to the world-class skiing of Sunday River Ski Resort and escape their 9-to-5 lives, but excellent skiing and riding aren’t the only reasons to consider a home in western Maine. The Appalachian Trail; which winds its way 2,100 miles from Georgia into Maine; passes through these Mahoosuc Mountains. This area puts you within reach of both the White Mountain National Forest and Grafton Notch State Park, both of which provide a myriad of outdoor opportunities. It’s home to some of the most challenging golf courses in the Northeast, including the Robert Trent Jones, Jr. designed Sunday River Golf Club.
Few other settings put you amidst the most beautiful mountains in New England, a short ride from the coast and an easy day’s drive to the major cities of the Northeast. Add to that the diverse selections of activities, dining and nightlife, and the arts, as well as the four unique seasons that grace these mountains and you’ll understand why this area has been attracting visitors and turning them into homeowners for over 230 years.
