The Bethel Inn Resort

Improve your game this summer at The Bethel Inn Resort in Bethel, Maine, a quick and convenient drive from the greater Boston area.

They include resort accommodations, five hours of on-course PGA instruction per day, video analysis, all meals, unlimited golf and over 200 acres of resort activities.

Renowned Northeast architect Geoffrey Cornish designed Bethel Inn’s 6,663 yard, par 72 course to take maximum advantage of the mountain vistas and natural beauty of the area. Tree-lined fairways, natural hazards, well-trapped greens and five tee positions make play challenging for everyone. The golf course is open from early May through late October.

There are four types of rooms and suites, located in the Main Inn and adjacent Oaks and Pines buildings.  They include spacious one and two room suites with fireplaces, outside decks and whirlpool tubs as well as smaller, comfortable rooms with simple decor for our value-seeking guests. Townhouses are also available.

All Traditional Inn rooms, of course, have private baths, flat screen HDTVs, Wi-Fi access, telephones, Keurig coffee makers, clock radios, hair dryers, and irons/ironing boards.
