LAKE HAVEN COTTAGE ON MOOSE POND--RELAX & HAVE FUN, 4 SEASONS!

Bridgton Cottage Rental Photos and Description

House - 2 Bedrooms + Loft - 1 Bath - (Sleeps 6)

Remodeled, clean, comfortable and cared-for--and not just another 'rental cabin', we know you'll enjoy this home as many others have. Wake up to the rising sun in this cheerful master bedroom and tell us if you agree: it's special!

With long driveway off the road, we're in a natural, wooded spot and our few neighbors don't feel close. Have fun on the 10-mile lake, shop, hike, ski, explore--or just plain relax here at Lake Haven. There are activities for all 4 seasons, including swimming off the dock or from our small sandy beach (our protected cove is out of the strong winds). Bring your small boat or use our canoe and rowboat provided at no extra cost. Two decks (one right over the water!) provide great places to have lunch, read a book and lose your cares.

Area attractions include many restaurants, the shops of quaint Bridgton village, country fairs, craft and antique shops, museums, movie theaters (including a drive-in!) and more shopping, amusements and attractions in nearby North Conway, NH.

About William Van Twisk

Anne & Bill live an hour and a half away in Brunswick and work here at the cottage as caretakers, painters, decorators and the maintenance crew! Yes, we're particular about keeping the place up. We enjoy spending time here during the 'quieter seasons' and the way living here is so calming and peaceful.

William Van Twisk purchased this cottage in 1998

Why William Van Twisk chose Bridgton

We bought this place after selling another that was only seasonal. It's wonderful to experience a vacation home in all of Maine's four seasons! With spring and fall hiking, winter sports nearby and fun on the lake in summer--and a quiet place to relax in between-- we have our major interests all covered here.

What makes this cottage unique

It's the COMPOSITION! It just works. With our forested 3 acres, our yard and simple gardens and our west shore looking East over the water. The sunrises and afternoon colors on the lake and opposite shore are just beautiful. Our location and site is just right as to accessibility and privacy, with just a few close neighbors and a long drive leading in shared with just one other home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Anne & Bill- We had a wonderful stay! You really have a lovely place. The boys really enjoyed sledding out front--hence the jumps. And it was so convenient to Shawnee (Shawnee Peak Ski Area) where we skied almost every day.



We were lucky to have one the snowstorms of the season and I had a great backcountry ski day. I'm sure we'll be in touch for future stays!

Beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5
The weather and the leaves changing were wonderful. The house lent itself to the water to enjoy such a beautiful view. We enjoyed critters and birds, deer and the fish ...oh, there even was one that got away, but we saw him up close and personal. Delightful accommodations, rested well. We plan to come back.We enjoyed the Fryeburg Fair and want to go there again, the best fair ever. Thank you for a wonderful time.

Beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at Lake Haven - we were there for 2 weeks, and the cottage is equipped with everything you need, condiments, spices, everything except linens. The weather was beautiful, our lab was swimming every day. We had frequent company, grandchildren, friends, and all were comfortable in the space. We were so content there that we did little exploring, but shopping easily available in Bridgton. We did canoe (supplied) and kayak, saw many birds, heard loons every day.Would recom-ment this cottage to anyone considering a "get-away"!! I do love a "pond"--

Great Place to Unwind, Relax and Reconnect!

  • 5 of 5
We had a very enjoyable, relaxing and fun week at your Lake Haven home. The boys logged countless hours of fishing from the dock and boats. We canoed, kayaked and paddle boarded (rented from a place in Bridgton) all around the lake daily. The loons and king fishers were a treat to watch all week. Swimming was loads of fun too, especially on the hot 4th of July after our older son ran in the 4 on the 4th in Bridgton. We hiked up Pleasant Mountain and road down the mountain biking trails of Sunday River (even Mom). A movie at the classic Magic Lantern filled a rainy evening. We discovered the beautiful Pondicherry 66 acres of hiking trails behind the Magic Lantern too. The new Cup Cake Love in town won us over on the first bite. Lake Haven was so comfortable and clean with absolutely everything we needed. We enjoyed meals on the deck and docks. Movies and games in the loft was a nice way to unwind at night. We set up a 1000 piece puzzle on the dining table that we picked away at all week. The kids loved the little sleeping cubbies. It was so wonderful to wake up and walk right down to the water with your morning coffee. We had a great week! Thank you.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Thanks Bill and Anne, we had a terrific time snow shoeing and ice fishing right out front. We hope to be back soon. The place was perfect for what we needed and then some. We would have liked to change the outcome of a certain football game (which to be fair, happened miles from Lake Haven). Otherwise, perfect! A great spot!

Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a pleasant weekend away at the cottage. It was just the right size for us, and it contained everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Although it rained and was cool during our days there, we enjoyed one afternoon sitting on the deck at lake's edge. We were happy to see a loon even at that late fall date. We also made ample use of the cozy fireplace in the living area, eating our home-cooked meals at the dining table while watching the firelight in the adjacent room. The master bedroom provided us with a great morning view of the lake as the mist slowly rose off the water. Very peaceful! This Denmark property was only 10 minutes from Bridgton, which was convenient for our grocery shopping and general sightseeing. Overall the cottage was well-maintained, and the owners were communicative and friendly. We would consider returning, perhaps in warmer weather so we could make more use of the nice beach area and the quiet lake setting.

Happy in Maine

  • 5 of 5
Great fall vacation! Found the home very clean and comfortable. What a gorgeous view, especially with the full moon shining off the water. Gotta love those loons! Loved the use of the canoe and boat!
The whole process was smooth and they had everything there that you might need. Would highly recommend and we hope to make it back.
Also, there is so much to do in the surrounding area. I even took a Yoga class right down the road a piece.

Owner's Response: Debra - We're so happy you had a good time. And because you shared with us dozens of the most beautiful photos, we know you meant it. Look for one or two of them to show up on the Lake Haven website--classic Fall colors of the Lake Region! --Bill & Anne
