Sunday River Trip - Bethel, Me

Recommended Posts

Hello --

I'm heading up to Bethel, ME to go skiing next week for vacation. We're going to be staying in one of the lodges affiliated with the Mountain.

Anyone been to this area and have any recommendations for places to eat. I'll probably bring snacks for the lodge, but we would like to go out & eat.

Thanks in advance!

Allie

Sorry, I don't know of any places. When I went last year I took all of my food with me. Have you tried talking with the lodge to see if they have any advice?

Hey Penny -

Thanks for the advice. I have not called the lodge. I was curious firstly if anyone had happened upon some fabulous gluten-free place that might happen to be in the area - wishful thinking!

I usually bring food to get by - and can also find something to eat at most restaurants, so I should be fine...

Have a good weekend!

Just wanted to update this since BostonCeliac and I have both been there and had good experiences!

This is what BostonCeliac told me: Actually, there is a great little coffee shop/internet cafe on Main street in Bethel called "Bean & Mouse" or something along those lines... When we were in there I was drooling over a piece of cake and I (jokingly) asked if they had it gluten free -- and she mentioned they occasionally did have gluten free chocolate cake!! Not that day - but you may want to check it out! How nice that would be.

We stayed at the Jordan Grand and also had a kitchen so made food in the room mainly. One night we did go to Phoenix House which was cool - and the waitress was totally aware of celiac - so she made sure my roasted chix & potatoes were gluten-free...

Also - we stopped at the Hannaford's that is on the way -- and they had Redbridge (!) and a vast gluten free selection including Tinkyada pasta for a reasonable price!! I would definitely recommend that -- their selection was bigger than my Shaw's here in MA.

And I told her: We basically did what you did- stopped at Hannaford and hit the jackpot. We ate at the pub at White Cap one night (Shiphaus Brewery). I had ribs with blueberry BBQ sauce and mashed potatoes. The waitress was totally celiac aware- her nephew has autism and he is gluten and casein free so that was great. AND they had Cold River which is the potato vodka made in Maine.

Got a foot of snow while we were there! Longer ski season!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for adding what I wrote to you! I was just coming here to put in my two cents in case anyone searches in the future & you did it for me :)

I'm still impressed with that Hannaford's up there!
