My husband and I are both retired now and are really enjoying the house. My husband golfs and can recommend many courses in Maine. He also enjoys hunting and fishing and finds the area plentiful. I enjoy gardening, antiquing and sightseeing, and having our grandchildren (all 15 of them) visit us in Maine

carol chase purchased this house in 1996

We are a 'blended family' and wanted to find a vacation home we could share with our '7' children and their children and friends. We've had many Thanksgiving celebrations in our kitchen followed by cutting down our Christmas tree. This 4-season home offers so much... sking, boating, swimming, cross country skiing, hiking jockey's cap, fishing. It was the best investment we ever made. My grandchildren learned to ski at Shawnee Peak.

House is designed for gatherings...ample sleeping options, including a Loft with 3 twin beds.. Kids will Love IT!! Large yard with 2 decks, hammock, lawn games, firepit & plently of parking

Fantastic experience

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were fortunate to spend some time in this wonderful setting. The lodging was superb, the ambiance was romantic, the amenities were more than we expected and the outside background was so beautiful. Truly a destination to be had. The owner has provided so much information as to dining, out door activities and places to frequent. Looking forward to returning to this fantastic vacation retreat!!!

Great Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5
This was our families second summer renting this beautiful vacation getaway. We have 4 young children and this house is perfect for the 6 of us and could be perfect for many more!
The house is fully equipped with everything that you could possibly need. The yard is great as well, with a hammock, fire pit and plenty of games for the whole family. The Knight's Hill Beach is close by and fun for the family. We enjoyed the many hiking trails that Pleasant Mountain has to offer. The home is just a short ride to North Conway, New Hampshire as well. Although we have enjoyed our summer vacations here, it would be ideal for a family or group to rent in the winter as well due to its close proximity to so many ski resorts. A great home that I would highly recommend!

Fantastic winter house!

  • 5 of 5
A group of friends stayed at this property over new years weekend 2012. We had an amazing time. The house is cozy and comfortable:
* Lots of beds and bedrooms that offer a variety of sleeping options
* Fantastic living room with high ceilings, big windows, and a roaring fireplace -- also a TV with cable/DVD if you want to watch movies at night!
* Great kitchen that is fully stocked and has a big table for meals together
* Nice yard for our dog to explore!
* Fantastic board game closet, lots of extra blankets, etc.
There are many, many winter sports close by. We went skiing at Shawnee (2 min drive), snowmobiling, sledding, and hiking. Grocery stores and restaurants are close by in cute downtown Bridgton. Carol was very helpful and answered all of our questions while we were there, even providing suggestions for activities and so on.
This was the perfect winter escape for us all!
