About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible beds, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
The naturally wooded landscaping has majestic views from the first floor and second floors. The first floor has an open floor plan, and the second floor has a large Master Bedroom and half bath with outstanding sunrise views. The wood burning stove on first floor takes the chill out of the cool Maine nights.
Enjoy the large permanent dock with great fishing, swimming, and boating on your own private, 120 foot lake-front access. A shallow, somewhat sandy area is just a few steps down to the lake.
Over 40 miles of boating on a chain of three beautiful Maine lakes, interconnected with locks. Bring your boat and watercraft. We have docking available for 1 boat up to 23'.
Area attractions include loads of antique dealers in the local area towns such as Bridgton, Fryeburg, Norway, and Harrison; fly fishing, canoeing and rafting trips on the Saco River! There are also powerboat and sailboat rentals in nearby Harrison, and at the Causeway in Naples. Golf at the fine area Golf Courses like Sebago, Sunday River, and our local course in Bridgton. There are many nearby restaurants and of course, the Lake Region's outstanding fall foliage.
Railroad and History buffs will love researching information on The Bridgton and Saco River Narrow Gage Railroad that serviced the tourist trade during the late 1800's. It ran from Bridgton to Harrison at the turn of the 20th Century. You can even see the old roadbed that ran across the front of our property.
During the Summer (high season), we offer an 8 day, 7 night rental. Check-in is at 3:00 pm on Saturday and Check-out is 10:00 am on the following Saturday. Call for weekend availability in the Spring and Fall.
When you decide to make a reservation, contact us and we will mail you a Rental Agreement. We will hold your reservation upon receiving 50% of the rental and security deposit.

When we have the agreement, and the rental deposits, we will mail you a Confirmation Letter along with the directions to the property and the code used to get in the house.
