Sunday River in Bethel ME is neat and Mars Hill Big Rock Mountain is small but family oriented and very affordable. Sometime we will cross the Canadian border to spend time on Crabbe Mountain in Upper Haynesville New Brunswick too.

Fireplace, tiled bath, all post and beam and natural w...

Perhaps the most impressionable feature of this area is the simple fact that there aren't that many people here. Consequently, fewer of the trappings of contemporary society that assault us in mor...
