Wonderful home, amazing views, relaxing sandy beach, water was great for swimming!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at this rental. The house was immaculate, and we had everything we needed from the minute we arrived. The sandy beach was perfect for our three year old to play and swim and the dock was great for fishing. The kayaks and canoe are great to have and we took them out daily! The large deck was the perfect place to relax and has great views of the lake. Tom is great to work with and we hope to be back again next year!

Great house for a family get away

  • 5 of 5

We keep coming back. This is a great house for a family get away. It's very nice inside and the deck, dock and beach are wonderful. Want to take a walk? it's convenient to town. If you like the Maine lakes, this is a very good choice.

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.
