                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1962

                          About the owner: The property is owned by two families that have grown quite large over the generations. The Christmas Tree Inn has been a wonderful place for holidays and family gatherings over the years.

                          Why the Owner Chose Bridgton:
                          The property was purchased in 1962 by a brother and sister whose mother was sick. They wanted to have a place where both of their large families could gather with their mother. The property in Bridgton worked because of its proximity to a local hospital as well as to Portland ME. Since then it has been a gathering place for all of the children and their families for skiing, boating, shopping and celebrating. The Christmas Tree Inn has seen numerous wedding ceremonies and receptions, family reunions, birthday parties and annual gatherings of families and friends.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
                          The Christmas Tree Inn is located in a wooded association perfect for the quiet morning walk or run. 5 Minutes to Shawnee Peak Ski Area, 1/2 hour to the outlets of North Conway, NH. 15 minutes from the Fryberg Fair in October, many restaurants in area, 5 minutes to golf at Bridgton Highlands Country Club.
