As more people turn to weddings in the mountains, and as smaller gatherings may become the norm, the Thaddeus Twitchell House in Bethel, Maine, is fast becoming a favorite destination.
Located between Sunday River Resort and historic Bethel Village, the property offers a picturesque, comfortable setting to host a wedding party as well as a ceremony itself.
The home originally was built in 1813 and went through stages as a boarding house, bed and breakfast and a single-family home where the bedrooms were all named after the family’s children, except for one that is now named for the current owners’ son.
Since then it has been transformed by a series of renovations into the luxury accommodations of today. Situated on 1.6 wooded acres, the beautifully landscaped property affords an exquisite backdrop for an outdoor ceremony. Inside, the 4,650 square-foot home features an expansive living room with fireplace, a gourmet commercial kitchen, a lovely, spacious dining room and seven bedrooms, each with a private bath, plus an additional bedroom with a half-bath.
