... earth. I was flowing up stream as the water was flowing down stream. It was an amazing experience.
That evening I got the opportunity to help out in a commercial kitchen for my first large meal prep experience. It was a wonderful learning experience. The smell of sourdough bread made me long to eat wheat more than I ever had since my change in diet. Dinner at tables overlooking ...

Though I will say he did a right fine job guiding me out of the driveway of their house and down the street. I think he's a resource for Mapquest. For those who have never been to N. Conway it is essentially a ski town located in central New Hampshire along the NH/Maine border. Mt. Cranmore ...
Fake Break has just happened! This is basically when they do the whole event of breaking the hatchets for the beginning of colour war, but just as you think the hatchets will be crossed, an announcement comes on to say, "back to your bunks, goodnight." That's when everyone goes, "ooooohhhhh!" It was quite intense. We had a 60's theme dance ...
Colour War is due to start any day from now! Fake breaks have been happening throughout the past week which has built up the tension in the atmosphere. Basically, when the real break happens Ephram will hole up a green and a white hatchet and cross them both above his head which is called the 'Break'. That's when colour war officially begins and you are out in our teams - green or white. Everyone goes crazy after that and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Bethel Inn Resort
Just came home from a wedding at the Bethel inn, Service poor, Food inedible, How embarassing for the Bride and Groom and the parents that were paying the bill; What a DISAPPOINTMENT for the guests that travled so far and stayed at the Inn;
We attended a November 2004 wedding at the inn, expecting an experience worthy of the "inn & country club" distinction. What a disappointment!
I traded my Gold Crown RCI week in New York City for one in "secluded, beautiful" Maine. (There are less than 1,000 Gold Crown status resorts in the 20,000+ properties around the world.).
Golf was great but accommodation....
The location is stunning, the golf is great and the cottage was very spacious. However, that's where it ends... The cottage was on the 11th fairway and it was a beautiful view. It was also increadibly spacious but very very much in need of modernisation. It was like something straight out of the 1970's and nothing done since. The outside was nice and fresh though. Inside we had a sever case of damp and strong smell of mould. I would not go back until it has had an overhaul. The pool was nice and we didn't try the food so can't comment there. Make sure to call up and ask if it has been renovated before you go.
We rolled in to the Bethel Inn late at night and we were grateful to get the one remaining/available room. Sorry, but even the "free" upgrade to a suite didn't make up for the dirty carpeting, dim lighting, smoke smell and peeling paint. Don't be misled by the pretty yellow "main" building - this place is ready for a complete overhaul.
Beatiful Lake, Terrible Hotel
Our trip was in June 03. Paint was peeling on most of the buildings. We were so surprised at how bad the room was. We were in a building that had some rotting wood on the outside. There was no air conditioning in the room. The bed had 1 boxspring with 2 mattresses side by side on top of it. They kept seperating. The water would sometimes only come out hot for hours meaning you'd get burnt in the shower and couldn't get a glass of water. The housekeeping was poor. The area felt safe though and a there was beautiful lake that we could use down the road with complementary use of canoes. The outdoor heated pool and the restaurant were also nice.
Hated it - Unspecial in Every Way
The Bethel Inn should be torn down and rebuilt. IT is so ugly in every way. The staff dresses poorly. When we arrived in our really ugly room, not only was there a used cigar sitting on a table, but we overlooked the parking lot and the DUMPSTER! The food was beyond unedible and the manager let us leave after spending one horrible night and gave us our money back because she agreed with our complaints. Also, There weren't even sheets covering the matresses. How disgusting is that?
We have been going to the Bethel Inn for the last 12 years and have always had a wonderful, relaxing time. In the winter the cross country skiing is beautiful and the summer golf is challenging. We will continue to return for many years.
Pros: The grounds of the inn and the common rooms are very picturesque.
On March 01.2003 we stayed at the Bethel Inn and found the serive to be terrible. After being seated for dinner it was an hour and a half before we were served dinner. The "Fairway rooms" we had were poorly constructed, thin walled and noisy. The rooms were small and did not have any amenities, no hair drier, no cups for water. The rooms were poorly heated and all of the walkways had dog excrement along the walks. There is no HOT TUB as advertised, it is a heated pool. The staff did not acknowledge our request for information on any discounts ( AAA) or specials. We were told that the advertised special "did not exsist" and were charged full price for two rooms. We felt as if we were victims of a bait-and-switch regarding room rates. Had we left we would have been charged regardless.
