Our Story . . .
In 1955 a young couple, Jim and Ruby Bethell, purchased this property, about 200 acres of forest. Together, they cleared part of the land and sold all but 20 acres in order to build their house and start Bethell Logging Company, which Jim ran from this location for 48 years. Five generations of Bethells have made memories on our property, including Jim's parents, his four daughters--Sheryn, Sandy, Terry and Cindy--eight grand kids and ten great grand kids. Cindy Bethell, the youngest of Jim and Ruby's four girls, is innkeeper at Bethell Woods, along with her husband, Roger Asbahr.
