Bryant Pond house description

This handsome country home sits along a rural road overlooking Lake Christopher. A natural footpath leads down to the lake below. We have gorgeous views of fall colors all around the house and on the mountain across the lake in the fall. In the winter, you can cross country ski, snowshoe out our back door and easily access several downhill ski mountains in the area.

The downstairs includes a mudroom, and a fully equipped kitchen, a living/dining room which features a piano and fireplace, a full bath and a den with small TV that can only be used for DVD. Upstairs there are three bedrooms: two with queen beds and lake views, one of which has an optional second queen futon, and one double with a garden view. There is also a full bath with laundry room.

Our Lakeside Retreat is a perfect jumping off point for all that Western Maine and the White Mountains have to offer. The house is only a 10 minute drive from Bethel (Sunday River, shops, restaurants, hiking, outdoor adventure center, water park) and a 45 minute drive from New Hampshire (hiking/skiing in the White Mountains, outlet shopping). It is also the perfect place to get away from it all... eating dinner on the screened in porch while watching the sunset over the lake and listening to the loons calling, reading a book in the hammock under the trees... enjoying the beautiful flower gardens and woods around the house. Or getting cosy in front of the fireplace and watching the snow fall through the big picture windows. Your stay at our Lakeside Retreat is sure to be a truly magical experience!

              Manager info

              About: My name is Eli, I am the daughter of the owner, Alice. I live in Maine and try to get to Bryant Pond as often as I can. We tend to visit whenever there aren't renters because we love the place so much. We are both avid gardeners as is attested to by the herb garden and flower gardens around the house. We are also keen hikers and boaters, both of which the Western Mountains region is perfect for.

              Why Bryant Pond:
              My mother bought this property some 40 years ago. We lived in the house for many years before moving elsewhere in Maine. While growing up we only rented it in the winter and would live there all summer. But now we have started renting in out all times of year and just using it ourselves when other people aren't there.
