Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful lakefront cottage for a week's stay in August. We found the location to be perfect, secluded and private with excellent views of the lake and of the White Mountains. Access to the private beach was great, and we enjoyed nightly fires with s'mores. The private dock offered great views for morning coffee and afternoon sunshine. We had visits from a few loons each day which was a delight. We found the house to be spacious for our family (3) and it was very clean and well kept. Nice large deck overlooking the lake and a charcoal grill provided for some good dinners. The Bush family owns the adjacent houses/cottages so it was always quiet and relaxing. Overall, we loved this experience and would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice, peaceful and relaxing week on a lovely Maine lake.

Beautiful scenic property perfect for family!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth summer renting this beautiful property for a week. It's a time when our famply of six get together and spend a relaxing week on Highland lake. The house is spacious and sleeps six adults comfortably. It has a fully furnished kitchen with new appliances. The view from the master bedroom is breathtaking with large windows looking out on the lake. The house comes with games, books and a pool table. Kayaks and a canoe are also included in the rental. Love spending the early morning kayaking on the lake with little boat traffic. The house is minutes away from downtown Bridgton with many places to eat and stores to visit. We look forward to our weekly vacation in Maine and Tom and his family go out of their way to make this house feel like a second home. We have also spent weekends in the fall enjoying the foliage and peaceful lake. We look forward to spending many future summer vacations on this lovely property.

The definition of relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Our busy family of four was in need of an extended weekend of downtime and the only thing on the agenda was to relax. That's exactly what we did! The cottage was clean, the set up provided privacy from our two boys and the private beach and dock along with the kayaks and canoe provided entertainment for everyone in the family. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything you may need to cook with. We took advantage of the option to have sheets and towels supplied for us- well worth it plus beach towels were available. My only complaint- it's booked for the entire summer and we would have loved to return for a longer stay! Looking forward to returning another time. Tom was great to work with, detail oriented, prompt and so accommodating. We can't thank the Bush family enough for sharing their hidden gem with us.

Owner's Response: Wow, thanks for a great review, we very much appreciate you taking the time to write such a thorough and positive review. We are delighted that everything worked well for you and your family and are even more pleased that our place exceeded your expectations. Unfortunately you are right, we have been booked for the peak summer weeks since mid January. While we haven't rented for very long, this seems to be our pattern. I hope we are able to accommodate you in the future. Again our thanks for the rental and the very positive review.

Second year in a row!

  • 5 of 5

This place is really everything I could ask/want in my Maine lakehouse getaway.

Kayaks, canoe, private beach with a fire pit.

Open concept kitchen/living room. A library of books to choose from. Comfortable beds.

Quiet, clean, beautiful, We absolutley loved our stay, second year in a row! I highly recommend, close enough where you can walk downtown but fully equipped kitchen if you want to cook in. Walking trails withing walking distance, beautiful lake.

We had a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 spent a week here in June and we all had a wonderful time. We specifically booked the cottage because of the area – we’ve visited Bridgton a few times before and we like to meet up with family during the week. This is the best place we’ve ever rented. My husband and I have 3 children ages 5, 4, and 20 months and this place was perfect due to the lovely wrap around deck (that kept the littlest one from wandering off), spacious kitchen/living area, and great private beach equipped with kayaks, a canoe and Adirondack chairs. The water was so clear, shallow and gentle – all 3 kids had a wonderful time splashing and playing in the water. In addition, mommy had a few moments alone drinking her coffee on the private dock (as daddy watched the little ones). In short, you can’t beat the location (right on the water), the convenience (local shops, grocery stores, movie-cinema for rainy days – all just seconds down the road), and the experience (fun AND quiet moments). Thanks to Tom, for the ease of booking and the helpful information about the area. We’ll be back!

Great Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

As a renter with a dog, boat and a blended family, it isn't always easy to find accomodations. The owners were wonderful and very easy to work with! This house had everything we needed and more. There was plenty of room in the living area which allowed everyone to relax and enjoy the pool table. There was plenty of room in the kitchen with the new wrap around counter which gave me plenty of room to cook for and feed everyone! The view of the lake was in every room of the house, even as you walked out the bedroom with the twin beds! The weather wasn't the greatest but we did have some sun and were able to enjoy the lake every day! The dock extends out to the lake with two chairs to sit, relax and enjoy the view. I was happy to have found this house to rent for my family!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your complete review of our property. We appreciate the time you took to outline the flexibility of the cottage layout for a full range of guests and dogs. The view of the lakes and mountains to the west are difficult to capture in pictures and your description should be helpful to future renters.
