About the Property

4 Bedroom, 1 loft, 2.5 Bathrooms, sleeps 10 (maximum guests)

This beautiful year round, waterfront home is located on crystal clear Highland Lake, a short walk to the quaint village of Bridgton and a 5 minute drive to Shawnee Peak Ski Area. The house sits directly above the water's edge on 350' of water frontage. A small private beach cove with a very gradual sandy entry is perfect for young children. This house is an ideal spot for families to vacation year round. Swim, boat or fish right from the back door. Or sip your favorite drink on one of 2 decks or in front of our beautiful fireplace.

Originally built around 1850, the house was completely renovated in 2012, adding contemporary features while maintaining its historic charm. There are stunning views from nearly every room, including the ultramodern kitchen with state of the art stainless appliances as well as quartz countertops. Two outdoor decks, one open and one covered, offer breathtaking views of the lake, loons and Mt. Washington. There is also a private dock for mooring your own boat or if you choose to rent one from one of the many local marinas, as well as a separate dock to relax and read, fish or daydream . A barn/garage was added in 2015. The upstairs is unfinished but contains a ping pong table.

Bridgton is centrally located with many restaurants, drive-in and sit-down movie theaters, antique stores and shops close by. A 30 minute drive to North Conway or Sunday River, a 5 minute trip to Shawnee Peak, make this is the perfect location to enjoy swimming, hiking, fishing, shopping or just relaxing.

Why the Owner Chose Bridgton, ME, USA:
Bought this unique property because of the location. House was a partial teardown......but it was the location on the lake and its close proximity to the downtown and winter activities made us fall in love with it!
