The 'Ski Hive' Luxury Mountain Log Home: Is a Spectacular Window Studded & Spacious Contemporary Log Home offering Slopeside Simplicity. Ski In / Out your front door onto Mohawk Trail & The Sunnyside Triple Chairlift at Shawnee Peak Ski Area, a Mid Sized Family Ski Area in Southwestern Maine. With over 40 Trails & Glades along with 3 Terrain Parks, Shawnee owns the distinction of providing the Most Night Skiing in New England, while being the 3rd Busiest Ski Area out of almost 2 dozen areas in Maine. You also have Trailside access to Shawnee's 10+ Mile Network of Maintained Hiking Trails, which during the winter are utilized for Snow Shoeing, Back Country Skiing, and Winter Hiking/Climbing. Shawnee's prime location, being 55 minutes from Portland (Maine's Largest City), 25 min from North Conway, NH, & 2.5 hours from Boston has allowed it to become the Oldest Continuously Running Ski Area in The State of Maine (76 Years). Our 3,000 sq ft Modern Luxury Log Home hosts a Total of 12 Rooms, 5 Spacious Bedrooms, Loft & Gourmet Kitchen/Dining Room Seating 16 & Sleeping 18-22, perfect for Family Reunions or Hosting Multiple Families. You will love our Great Room's 20+ ft Cathedral Pine Ceiling, Australian Cypress Hard Wood Floors, & Grand Field Stone Fire Place. 75 feet of Wrap Around Covered Porch/Deck provides Great Mountain Views all within 300 yards of Moose Pond with Plenty of Room for all with 3 Stories of Living Space, Our extensive 1st Floor Walk in Basement Includes 2 Bedrooms which can Sleep up to 10 people alone, Kids Playroom, Ski/Mud Room (with Antique Winter Sports Theme), Full Bathroom, Laundry & Utility Rooms along with Ping Pong Table, Wi-Fi & 42' TV.

Recently our Log Home was highlighted on Maine's TV station WPXT on their 'Buy Local' show & is displayed on The Maine Cedar Log Home Web site (lower right corner).
Trailside Way: Located on the Eastern Slopes of Shawnee Peak The 'Ski Hive' was completed in 2008 and is one of 12 Log & Log Style Homes in this Quiet, Quaint, & Peaceful Mountain Cul De Sac. Known as the uncrowded & hidden secret by locals, the East Side offers great cruising runs and is often overlooked by many visitors to the area. Trailside Way is off the beaten path far away from the busy Main Lodge which provides the privacy and serenity to 'GET AWAY FROM IT ALL'....while still providing direct access to the summit and Shawnee's 40+ Trails &
Glades. When the lifts close and the parking lots empty, you and your 11 neighbors (which are never all occupied know matter what season) are the only ones on the East Side of the mountain. During the spring, fall, & summer months it is not uncommon to be the only family up on the mountain giving it the feel of being way out in the wilderness but still so close to all the great enjoyments the Bridgton, Naples, Western Maine Mountains, North Conway, NH, & Sebago Lake Area has to offer.

The 'Ski Hive' Log Home Tour: Offering Slopeside Simplicity, Park your car in our 100 ft drive where there is space for 3 cars along with limitless parking available at the base of the driveway on Trailside Way as the road receives next to zero car traffic. From your car & within a few convenient steps is our Walk-In First Level Main Entrance, making unloading your car a cinch, while our 2 Grand Outdoor Log Benches invite you to take a load off your feet. Around Front, you will find several Outdoor Living Spaces which provides ample opportunity for you to enjoy the Mountain Views & Shawnee's Quintisential New England Beauty, including our Log Picnic Table (seats 8), Grand Trailside Fire Pit & Blue Stone Patio with Granite Benches (Seats 8), while our Lunch Rocks Area (Seats 5). The Mohawk Ski Trail is 25 feet from our front door down a modest incline which will careen you down an easy slope 300 ft onto The SunnySide Triple Chair Lift. A perfect location to start your 3-5 year old toddler on Skis for the first time, We have a pair of 71 cm Ski Bum 'Training Skis' for you son or daughter to use over several hundred yards of easy terrain on both Mohawk & Appalachian Trails right outside your door.

Andrea & I have enjoyed hosting some 40+ Families/Groups since Nov 2011 and put tremendous pride into decorating “The Hive” to the season, with a Quaint, Traditional, Old/Antique, Classic, Country New England Style. This attention to detail and personal touch, has helped create a very special character, a unique charm, and a warm homey feel to “The Hive” that is hard to describe, and hard for many to remember a time away they felt this same way.

Andrea, our kids, & I have only just recently begun to realize how truly unique and how very special this property is. While providing our guests with the opportunity to experience, may not be one that is duplicated in the area, nor very possibly throughout the entire state of Maine, or all of New England. The one thing we are positively certain of though, is no matter what season you come, and no matter what the occasion may be for, you and your family/group will have nothing but a First Class & Remarkable Log Home Experience at “The Hive” Luxury Mountain Log Home at Shawnee Peak / Moose Pond.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: Our family resides in Tewksbuy, MA which is a suburb, 15 miles NW of Boston, MA. We always had a goal of owning a Log Home, having researched it thoroughly when we first got married in the early 90's. We accomplished our goal in the summer of 2011 purchasing the newly built Contemporary Log Home & enjoy utilizing when our 3 kids sports schedules allow us to do so. Andrea & I have worked for several Fortune 500 Corporations & have a combined 35 years working in the Biotech & Pharmaceutical Industries in various Accounting, Finance, Sales, Marketing, Managed Markets, & Account Management positions. Eric has recently started 'The Hive' Vacation Rental Services, LLC, & is now 100% dedicated to growing the business focused on Marketing & Managing our High End Long Term & Vacation Rental Homes in NH & ME & providing Marketing & Vacation Rental Services to other 2nd Home Owners in The Lakes & Mountains Regions of NH & ME. We adore the Bridgton & Western Maine Lakes & Mountains Area as there is so much to do no matter the season. Known more as a Summer Family Vacation Destination, our location Trailside at Shawnee Peak Ski Area is perfectly situated only 300 yards away from grand Moose Pond, therefore being at the ready to enjoy all outdoor activities no matter the season. We enjoy watching our 3 kids multitude of sporting events including hockey, basketball, soccer, lacrosse, baseball, cross country along with coaching basketball and soccer. Other hobbies we enjoy are gardening, walking, hiking, fishing, skiing, wildlife photography, shopping, attending family activities & running.

                  Why the Owner Chose Bridgton:
                  Convenience: You can do it all right from your front door...The 'Ski Hive' is located Trailside on Mohawk Ski Trail at Shawnee Peak Ski Resort....Ski In/Out, Snowboard, Snow Shoe, Winter Hike, on Shawnee Peaks 40+ Ski Trails & 10+ Miles of separate maintained Hiking Trails (Loon Echo Trust). Get Away from It All: Trailside Way is a quite Cul De Sac Village of 12 Log Home/Style Homes in a quaint setting. There is very rarely more than a few families up at any one given time thus you really have the whole East Side of the Mountain to yourselves. The home itself also has plenty of room to spread out with 3 Floors of Living space along with 75 ft of Wrap Around Covered Porch/Deck to watch the Wildlife outside in the Golden Maine Sunshine. But Close to All the Action: In the Naples, North Conway, Sebago Lakes Region, the Town of Bridgton alone sports some 20+ Restaurants, 2 Movie Theatres, 4 Public Town Beaches, it's own 18 Hole Public Golf Course, a few Ice Cream Stands, numerous Hiking Trail Systems in Bald Pate Mnt, Pondicherry Park, and Pleasant Mountain/Shawnee Peak, over a dozen ponds/lakes to fish & swim along with outstanding Antique, Boutique, and Gift Shopping with famous North Conway just a 25 min. drive away and Fryeburg Academy, Bridgton Academy, The Fryeburg Fairgrounds, and Saco River Drop In Points all only a 15-20 min drive. A Truly Remarkable Log Home & Amazing Mountain, Shawnee Peak & Area - In the Western Maine Mountains & Lakes, North Conway, NH, Sebago Lake, Naples, Long Lake Region

                  The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
                  There is nothing better than being Trailside to Shawnee Peaks 40+ Ski Trails right from your front door. Bridgton which is 'The Heart of The Western Maine Lakes & Mountains Region' provides unsurpassed beauty & outdoor opportunities with a dozen Lakes & Ponds alone. Next door is ever popular Fryeburg & Naples Maine with Sebago, Long & Highland Lakes along with North Conway, NH with its Magical White Mountain National Park. Andrea & I have enjoyed hosting some 90+ Families/Groups since Nov 2011 and put tremendous pride into decorating “The Hive” to the season, with a Quaint, Traditional, Old/Antique, Classic, Country New England Style. This attention to detail & personal touch, has helped create a very special character, a unique charm, & a warm homey feel to “The Hive” that is hard to describe, and hard for many to remember a time away they felt this same way. Andrea, our kids, & I have only just recently begun to realize how truly unique and how very special this property is, while providing our guests the opportunity to experience what may not be able to be duplicated throughout the entire state of Maine or even all of New England. The one thing we are positively certain of though, is no matter what season you come, and no matter what the occasion may be for, you and your family/group will have nothing but a First Class & Remarkable Log Home Experience at The 'Ski Hive” Luxury Mountain Log Home at Shawnee Peak / Moose Pond. “Where your Maine Memories are Made”
