The Denmark Stage Stop House is nestled between New Hampshire’s White Mountains and the Bridgton Lakes Region area, which offers year-round activities. Summer through Fall activities include hiking, swimming, boating, fishing, biking, kayaking and canoeing, sightseeing, antiquing, hunting, foliage views and much more, all the while being surrounded by the beauty of Maine and New Hampshire. Winter activities include skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, hiking for starters. For those that simply wish for a place to relax and simply get away from it all, we certainly offer that to. During the first week of October we also have the famous Fryeburg Fair, which is attended by close to 200,000 every Fall. For shoppers we are only a 25 minute ride from tax-free North Conway, New Hampshire with an abundance of outlet stores, including world famous LL Bean. Storyland in Glen, NH is only about 45 minutes away, which is always a very popular destination for our guests with small children.
Denmark Stage Stop House in Denmark Maine is located on an equestrian estate between Mt Washington Valley & Bridgton Maine. We are close to spectacular lakes, ponds and rivers and many outdoor activities and The Stone Mountain Arts Center. Our Shawnee Suite affords our guests complete privacy with it's own entrance and is surrounded by pastures and gardens. We limit the number of guests to no more than 6 people - no exceptions.
Labor Day 2018 has just passed us and now starts the best time of year to live in or visit Maine. The days are cooler and the humidity is much lower generally and the nights are starting to feel crisp - not to mention the summer crowds have gone home. Don't miss late summer and fall in Maine.
We are already almost completely booked for the 2018 Fryeburg Fair. We only have 4 nights remaining - available dates are October 1 - October 5, 2018. Book now before they are gone.
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.
We have many guests that stay with us for repeated stays in the past years while on a home buying journey in Maine's Lakes Region, so to that end I have activated my Associate Broker real estate license in Maine after having held an active real estate license in Massachusetts since 2004. If you are actively seeking to purchase a home, whether it is a vacation property, investment property, retirement home or your forever home, let's talk real estate while you are here! Not only can you rest your head at The Denmark Stage Stop House at the end of a day of house hunting, but I would be happy to assist you in finding that fits your needs and dreams.
NEW THIS YEAR! We are pet friendly! Not only can you bring your dog but for horse lovers, we are allowing our guests to bring 1 or 2 horses to enjoy our lush green pastures. Contact us for more details and fees if you wish to bring your horse. 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.
If you are a travel nurse our accommodations are available for longer term stays from fall through spring, so whether you are a traveling nurse, traveling physician or other healthcare professional looking for temporary housing we have accommodations to suit your needs.

Whether you just need a place to relax in the in the heart of Maine’s Lake Region or want to enjoy the many summer activities our area has to offer, you cannot beat the Denmark Stage Stop House.

We do no have any “HIDDEN” fees such as those for cleaning therefore no charge for cleaning and no security deposit required, which up to now has worked very well as all of our guests have been very responsible. We do require a $25.00 cleaning fee for guests opting to bring their dogs (no more than 2 allowed). This is to cover the additional cleaning required to make the next guest's stay who may not be pet friendly or have allergies, just as comfortable as you own. As a dog owner myself we all know are dogs can be a little messy even though they don't mean to be. The $25.00 cleaning fee for pets is per stay not per dog.
While the 2 bedroom Shawnee Suite is structurally part of the main house, it is completely removed from the residence with it's own entrance on an opposite side. Your privacy is very important to us and we strive to always protect that. The Shawnee Suite is on the ground level for easy access for our guests. In fact, we rarely even see our guests unless they opt to interact with us and we appreciate how important your privacy is to our guests. The Shawnee Suite is surrounded on by pasture and garden views. The outside grilling and seating area is yours and yours alone as well and again completely removed from any activity in the main house.

We are only one mile outside Bridgton Maine and only 5.4 miles from Shawnee Peak Ski (AKA Pleasant Mtn.) for great hiking.

We also offer our Bungalow Cottage for up to four people at a lower rate.
