Why Richard and Donna Joy chose Waterford
We are life-long Maine cabin vacationers and we love this area. A quiet lake, all the summer and winter activities, and a cozy lakefront cabin to call home.

Everything was great and owners replied back quickly when sent a question. The dock and kayaks and row boat were fun to use also.
My happy place
The minute I walked in, I was in love. The cottage is nestled amongst the pines, with full views of the water. It also has direct sun most of the day. The cottage was roomier than I expected, clean and quaint. I loved the bear decor they had throughout the cottage. The beds were comfortable as was the living room furniture. They have an extensive DVD collection of every genre and plenty of games. My grandchildren enjoyed the kayaks and the water while I soaked up the peaceful atmosphere sitting on the deck. The owners were very pleasant, patient and responsive to my many questions. I highly recommend this cottage.
A memorable experience in Maine!
Bear camp rising was so much fun for my family! The dock with all the kayaks was the best! And the view was breathtaking. If you want a relaxing vacation, this is it! Thanks for the memories!
The home was everything we hoped it would be!
The water was breathtaking and the views from the house were magnificent! It was peaceful with plenty of room for our family of five. We spent evenings having family movie and board game nights and spent our days swimming and kayaking. Bridgton was a charming town that we enjoyed daily whether it was a run to the store or to try local eateries. We loved every minute of this vacation and hope to do it again!
Great location to get away and enjoy the lakes region
We enjoyed our visit to Bear Rising Camp. Despite the warm weather that we brought north with us, the water views and rustic charm were exactly what we were looking for in a get away. The owners were super responsive to a question when we checked in and followed up to make sure we had found everything.
Bear Rising Camp is the perfect place to enjoy the beauty of Maine.
The camp is just an hour from Maine's coastline, and the White Mountains. It's conveniently located near several local attractions as well. I enjoyed waking up to a scenic view of the lake each morning and a cup of coffee on the peaceful quiet of the lake. The camp is clean and well maintained inside and out with all the comforts to make for a great week away from home. We cooked simple meals in the well stocked kitchen, watched movies several nights from the camp's extensive movie collection, and used camp kayaks and life jackets to explore the lake. The camp is very private, but is situated beside a road so you need to be careful with small children. We would definitely return to Bear Rising Camp on our next visit to Maine for more hiking, kayaking, exploring, and relaxing!
