Description of the Bridgton vacation cottage rental
Our vacation home is next the downtown beach and boat launch in the historic town of Bridgton, Maine. It's the perfect spot if you want easy access by foot to both a lake, antiques shops, gift stores, and downtown amenities.

Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms and a bathroom with a shower.

Downstairs there's a bedroom, bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, dining room, sun porch/breakfast room, living room, laundry and deck.

For additional guests the living room and breakfast room both have double size sofa beds.

The porch looks out over Steven’s Brook and a pretty little bridge that marks the remnants of a dam – one of eleven that powered Bridgton’s burgeoning industries during the 19th century. The bridge also marks the starting point of Stephen’s Brook Trail, a two-mile path that takes you along the brook, all the way to Long Lake.
Area Information
Favourite activities include golfing, boating, hiking, eating fresh lobster in the quaint coastal fishing villages and walking through Pondicherry Park and along Stephen's Brook Trail. Kayaks are available for rent downtown and are easily walked across the street to the boat launch.

Beyond Bridgton...
...in Naples you'll find the Songo River Queen and great restaurants. (15 mins)
...in North Conway you'll find waterslides, storyland, and NH outlets. (25 mins)
...in Portland you'll find ocean cruises, the mail boat and gift shops. (1 hour)

Bridgton is a picturesque town with plenty to discover. It’s about an hour's drive from Mount Washington Valley and the famous hotel where the goldstandard was agreed in 1937. The coastal drive takes you through some of the quaintest fishing villages known for their lobster bakes.

Paradise

This property turned out to be a little quiet and relaxing paradise. Although situated in town and along Route 302 it is bordered on one side by Steven's Brook and Shorey Park cutting out the potential traffic noise. The property was surrounded on three siders by trees which offered total privacy. We woke up in the morning to birdsong and fell to sleep lulled by the sound of the waterfall under the foot bridge. We enjoyed the tranquility and BQs in the evening and the the stupendous sunsets over the lake. We found the locals friendly and helpful. The wellstocked library only a few minutes walk away and Renny's Department store came in handy on the one or two rainy days while we were there. The highlight of our stay was the Arts in the Park Saturday when local artists exhibited in Shorey Park and local chuches offered weary visitors succulent hamburgers, hotdogs, lobster rolls and drinks. We came away with some lovely gifts for framily and friends at home. It certainly is a place we think of often and hope to come back to again. Judy Moore

Owner's reply:

Hi Judy, I'm so glad you enjoyed your vacation, it certainly is a calm, picturesque spot, and having the friendly, local artists exhibit their work in the adjoining park really does cap it off.

Hope to see you there again real soon.

Fine for the price.

This was the least expensive rental in the area and housed some of our guests while visiting with us. The home is nothing special, furnishings are dated, and the level of services was low (we had to remove our own trash etc.). But, there was nothing that came close to being as affordable and it served the purpose well with all the needs such as laundry and cooking, outdoor grill etc. accounted for. The public beech across the road and walking into town were good pluses. If you are used to high-end this would not be the place for you but is bargain given the areas summer rental fees.

The Red House

Excellent location - beautiful town beach and playground right across the street, center of town a 3 minute walk, with restaurants, movie theater, convenience store, etc. Great yard for children, alot of space where they can run and play.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What do you most enjoy doing at your vacation rental?
A: I really enjoy the freedom of being able to walk everywhere and not always have to get into the car.
Q: What makes this place special to you?
A: The water's so lovely and warm after our freezing cold Alberta lakes. We spend hours in the lake without ever getting cold, and we get to kayak without wetsuits!
Q: Is the house well-equipped?
A: Yes, I think so. We're never short of towels, dishes, or bedding. Everything's clean and fresh, Donna, our cleaner makes sure of that.
Q: How's the parking?
A: There's' lots because of the long access road. When we have large family gatherings with six to eight cars we park them along the side of the access road. If there's more than that, or boats on trailers, we overflow into the free beach parking.
Q: Is there a movie theatre?
A: Yes. The Green Lantern is a five minute walk. It's a modern building and they serve food too.
