Because of an extension in stay requested by other guests, Carol asked if we would like to stay at the Lake Cottage and we agreed. We pulled into Bethel on a beautiful fall afternoon and met Scott mowing the lawn of the B&B. He showed us around the B&B which looked beautiful and then gave us the keys to the Lake Cottage. The Lake Cottage is fantastic. It is situated on a point at a beautiful small lake about 6 miles from Bethel. I could not believe the workmanship on the cottage. It is first rate. Scott and Carol did not cut corners anywhere in rebuilding this cottage. From the glass of wine on the deck in the evening to the cup of coffee on the deck the next morning everything was perfect. The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious, clean, comfortable, and very nicely decorated as was the rest of the house. The lake is beautiful. I awoke to the sound a loon early in the morning and we were lucky to have a bald eagle land in the tree right off the deck. There was a little bit of highway noise in the afternoon but we did not notice this in the evening and night. The bed and breakfast in Bethel looked like a great place to stay and I know the Lake Cottage is. I would not hesitate to book with Scott and Carol the next time we pass through Bethel.
