Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We currently live near Poughkeepsie, NY in our "empty nest". We are both from California and managed to meet and fall in love, even though we went to rival high schools. We have been married for 40 years and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. Kent is semiretired from IBM and Debbie is still teaching second grade. We started vacationing in Maine many years ago, renting an assortment of houses. There was always something lacking about those houses so we finally bought our own and set out to make it just the way we would want it for our guests. Over the last 12 years we have gotten a lot of positive feedback and have happily incorporated suggestions for improvement.

Why the Owner Chose Bridgton:
This house is our first rental property. We bought this house in March of 2003 and have made many changes and upgrades. Many changes were made to accommodate suggestions made by our guests. We have learned a lot and think you will enjoy the benefits of our experience.
