Whether you like skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling in the winter or for summer time fun we are surrounded by lakes and rivers. The Saco River which offers canoeing, kayaking and tubing is only 10 minutes away and more. We are also surrounded by many great hiking opportunities with Pleasant Mountain only 5 miles away.
We are also the perfect home away from home for Bridgton Academy parents when visiting their child or attending their sport events.

Just as we are close to spectacular lakes, ponds and rivers and many outdoor activities we are only 12 miles from The Stone Mountain Arts Center.

The Denmark Stage Stop House number one goal is the comfort of our guests. We offer some of amenities you find in your favorite hotels but with the privacy of your own space. After a busy day of swimming, canoeing, hiking during the summer and fall months or skiing or snowboarding during Maine’s winter months come home to comfortable beds with their freshly laundered and pressed sheets and pillowcases. From late fall throughout our chilly, snowy winters our beds have heated mattress pads and blankets to keep you warm and cozy throughout the night. We also found some guests need a little "white noise" to get a restful sleep and to that end we have made white noise machines available to our guests.
Enjoy the full Maine and New England experience from lakes and springs that come alive in summer to hiking Pleasant Mt and other fantastic trails, kayaking, tubing, & canoeing down the Saco River or visiting Mt Washington Valley or just relaxing.

The Shawnee Suite and our Bungalow Cottage has views of our pastures and fields and our visiting horses. After owning horses since I was 4 years old I sadly find myself horseless after having lost my last 2 horses this past 1.5 years. While we do have people that board their horses with us we cannot guarantee that there will be horses here at the time of your visit, but there is a good likelihood there will be. There is outdoor seating with a gas grill with a side burner.
We are available at anytime during our guests stay for questions, issues or anything at all - even to find the best restaurant around - all you have to do is ask. We are generally on site but if not I am only a phone call or text away. If you want absolute privacy that's OK too. We like to be available to greet our guests, however on very night late arrivals that may not be possible but no worries about checking in 24 hours. Late arrivals are not a problem at all-just let us know your expected time of arrival and we will make the appropriate arrangements.

We take your safety (and ours) seriously. For this reason we make sure we have WORKING smoke and CO detectors and fire extinguishers in all of our rentals. Please do not remove any detectors or batteries while you are here for the safety of all.
As a dog lover too I do not travel anywhere without "Cowboy" and his comfort is as important as my own, so I understand how important it is to find a place that really is pet friendly.
Since many of our guests travel quite a distance we realize you may be checking in very late and we have that under control for you.
