Bear Trap Road is a private, gated community with awesome mountain views. Our house is a seven gable home with an open kitchen, dining, and living room area, three bedrooms, and 2.5 baths. Because our property sits high, there is a steep drop off that is not suitable for young children. If being secluded, but not more than 10 minutes from town is your idea of tranquility, this is the place for you.

This truly is a magical place to stay. We were in the area for an annual family reunion and booked the house to have our own place with immediate family. Upon arrival the house was clean and ready for us to relax. Although it was warm when we arrived, we popped on all of the fans and opened the windows. It took a few hours, but the house cooled and once we had an overnight with the windows open, it was very comfortable. The views on this place are incredible, but do take caution, there is a very steep drop off as described, so definitely not a place for young kiddos to play outside. We had a two year old there, but just made sure she did not go outside to play, which didn't matter since we were spending time at another house locally with family. We enjoyed all of the amenities including the pancake griddle (which, now I want my own!) and the pantry was well stocked with items. Town is very close by and it was easy to get around and pop over to the grocery store for other needs. My only regret is not using the soaker tub in the master with an incredible overlook...next time!
Wonderful views.Very private
When we initially arrived, it was quite warm. We contacted the owners on how to turn on the a/c , with a quick response from Henry we were notified of No a/c in the home. At first this concerned us, being from North Carolina. Our concerns were quickly nulled by the wonderful cool breeze the house gets when all the windows and back porch doors were opened. The house itself is well appointed for its size. The kitchen is fully equipped for those, like the six of us, who cooked all our meals during our 5 day stay. Any questions we had were quickly answered by Henry via email. The morning high lights were the chipmunks that played near the back porch.
Henry and Roberta were great host setting up seating for six around the camp fire and leaving us smores fixings.( which we were able to enjoy our last night - after the wind died down) In all we enjoyed The Bear Trap and all it had to offer.
Magical is right!
We came to Bridgton for a friend's wedding and were looking for the perfect place to double as a Memorial Day getaway. We coudn't have been more happy with Bear Trap. It is a BEAUTIFUL home with stunning views that will leave you conflicted on whether you want to spend your time inside the cozy yet sophisticated home, on the panoramic deck or around the fire pit. Roberta was extremely communicative and kind. These owners and this home are those dream scenarios that you hope to stumble upon when booking a home away.
While Jesse and her group were enjoying our home in Bridgton, Maine, we were on vacation in Alaska. When we returned to Bear Trap, and I walked into the house, I said to my husband, “They treated our home as if it was their own.” It put a huge smile on my face! Thank you so so much!!! I highly recommend Jesse and her group! As a VRBO host, you would hope all your guests were Jesse.
