About Beth Dwyer

Our family has been coming to Moose Pond for 4 generations. Now that we all live in different parts of New England, Moose Pond seems to be the place that we come to be together as a family.

Beth Dwyer purchased this house in 1997

Why Beth Dwyer chose Mountains & Lakes

The family loved the location on the Pond for water sports and the closeness to Shawnee Peak for skiing.

What makes this house unique

The Point House is a wonderful lakefront home with unique frontage on Moose Pond. The Home has spectacular water views and usage. Fall is a magnificent time of year to be in Maine when the lake changes color. No matter the season, the Point House is the perfect place for your next vacation!

Perfect Family Summer Retreat in Maine!

  • 5 of 5

The Point House provided our family a great location for our annual summer gathering. The beach was perfect for the newest and youngest members of the family to enjoy – it was so shallow and clean and wonderfully sandy. There was lots of swimming, boating and fishing. The home was very clean and well-equipped and provided plenty of gathering space for 10+ members. We particularly enjoyed the evenings out on the screened porch playing games and doing the annual family puzzle. The upper deck made you feel like you were sitting in the tree tops… it is a lovely and peaceful place to sit early in the morning watching the birds waking up and flying by. Deb and her family were very accommodating and made our time in their home very special. We highly recommend this vacation property on Moose Pond. Great location!

A Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My family came up from the heat of NC to enjoy the most spectacular property we have ever stayed at in Maine. The large pine grove on the edge of the lake was gorgeous and the natural sandbar and crystal clear water were a blast to play in and enjoy. This is a great property for young families (the sandy beach) or older with great swimming and hiking right out the doors of the spacious and very comfortable home. Right now, we are trying to figure out the family schedules so we can make our reservations for next year. We want to go to bed to the sound of the loons again. I want to also thank the owners of this beautiful camp. They made our experience all the more enjoyable.

Absolutely loved this place

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place to unwind! The two of us and our two dogs rented The Point House for a week and couldn't have been more happy with our choice. The building and site are beautiful, the beach is unique for Moose Pond - not all lots actually have a beach - and the owners were very professional and easy to work with. With family in the area, we made the most of our stay by having a four generations get together on one of the days. Would definitely rent this place again. This would be a great place to stay as well in the winter.

The Point House on Moose Pond

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely recommend this summer rental to all my friends. Ideal shallow water, sandy beach for small children. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you would possibly need and plenty of living space in the living room. The bathrooms have been completely refurbished. The photos accurately reflect the rental's appearance and amenities. The owner was very helpful with questions about the area and if we needed anything. Plenty of parking and quite private. We rented there the last two summers but are unable to rent next year. Hopefully, we'll be able to return in 2014.

Fun time in Maine!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 (mom, dad, 3 teens and dog) spent four terrific days here. The house is beautiful and so comfortable and is located on a gorgeous wooded property right on a crystal clear lake. Property comes with a hammock, canoe, fire pit, floating dock - and we made use of all of it! When we arrived there were a few small glitches and Beth, the owner, responded immediately. Town of Bridgeton is quaint and there are plenty of small shops and restaurants. All in all a wonderful, relaxing family vacation!

Perfect Location for Little Kids!

  • 5 of 5

My family recently rented the Point House and it was a perfect location for little kids. We had six adults, and three kids under the age of 4. The house was very spacious and had plenty of room for us to eat dinners either on the screened in porch or at the big table in the living room. The house has an amazing deck overlooking the lake and also has a rather large yard with nice pine trees right by the water's edge. The private beach was perfect for our family of little ones since we did not have to lug beach chairs and toys back and forth-we simply left them down by the beach area. The beach itself was beautiful-it was all sandy and the water was crystal clear-the water was very shallow, up to an adult's knees for about 30 yards which allowed the kids to explore the water and have an amazing time! The place is also pet friendly-we own a yellow lab who spent the entire time swimming at the beach with us! Bridgton has an adorable town and is only 30 minutes away from Storyland and North Conway. We would definitely return to the Point House and the owner was a pleasure to work with!
