Our Recent Reviews:

I stayed at the Norseman Inn this past weekend and I have to say that this property really exceeded my expectations. I was up for the weekend for an event at Sunday River and I wasn’t able to secure a room there so I stayed at the Norseman and I’m so happy that I did. The owners of the property are extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful. On the weekends they serve a continental breakfast in a fully set dining room that is cozy and adorable. My room was clean and spacious. There is also a free shuttle that stops at the property every half and hour and makes stops at the other Bethel hotels and bars on the way up to Sunday River (so convenient!). I really loved staying at this property and when I go back up to Bethel, You really can’t go wrong for the price. I will definitely stay here again!

Stopped here late and were quickly setttled into a comfortable motel room. This location is both an Inn and motel. We ate a nice breakfast in the Inn’s dining area and had a nice chat with the owners/operators who took pride in their establishment
