A five minute drive to the town of Bedford provides dining options, shopping for the antique lover and the D-Day Memorial for history buffs and veterans.

      Solo Adventure

      I really enjoyed the area - not far from Peaks of Otter. I totally recommend Sharp Top hike. The house was perfect for one guest or a couple. Coming from the city, the views from the windows inside the Sanctuary were nice. LOVED the fire pit. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to get away for some peace and quiet.
