Property description

Escape to Maine’s picturesque mountain region in this meticulous, lakeside cabin in charming Bridgton.

Docked on crystal-clear Highland Lake; swimming, canoeing and fishing are just a few steps from your doorway. Enjoy the spectacular mountain lake view from one of the decks perched outside the living room or upstairs master bedroom.

The lake is a four-season vacation retreat, and offers jet skiing, tubing, boating and ice fishing. Ski runs are visible from your window, and the community offers hiking, golf and antiquing for active vacationers.

Amenities:
Your warm and inviting home is tastefully furnished, with whispers of its hunting lodge roots. Prepare gourmet meals in the ample kitchen or outdoor grill. Spend an evening relaxing by the fireplace, watching a movie on satellite TV or playing a board game while the sun dips behind green mountain peaks.

Comfy beds and the faint song of loons floating through the crisp mountain air melt away stress and invite you to fall asleep.

Bridgton and Beyond:
The friendly town features a quaint main street with storefronts and an historic movie theater. Nearby shops, markets and restaurants combine local flare and convenience.

In an hour’s drive, you can sit in the shadow of a working lighthouse, traverse Maine’s famed rocky shoreline, stroll through Portland or visit the outlet village in Freeport.

Thank you for taking the time to explore our rental opportunity. This inviting home is the perfect getaway for a couple or family in search of serenity and lasting lakeside memories. Many of our guests enjoy the experience so much, they make their stay on Highland Lake a tradition, and we look forward to welcoming them back each year.

Owner info

About the owner: For over three generations our family has been coming to Bridgton, ME, traveling from Boston, New York City and Florida to vacation with one another. Our family has grown up on this lake swimming, boating, water-skiing and tubing.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our home is the perfect place to bring family and friends together for some summer fun and much needed R&R. The front porch just off the living room is the central gathering point of the house, which starts with coffee in the morning as the sun rises and the warmth of the day builds. At any point during the day you have your choice of shade or the direct rays of the sun on the porch. The direct access and shallow sandy beach allow you to comfortably wade in the water or take the plunge into the clean lake water. As the sun sets and the lake stills, it's happy hour on the porch with a glass of wine and great conversation. The smell of the grill fills the air and the only sounds are the loons on the lake, the crickets and laughter. It's our escape from city life, we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
