BEAUTIFUL WATERFRONT CHALET WITH SUNSET VIEW - BOOK SUMMER 2014 NOW!

Bridgton House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This is a year-round chalet style home on gorgeous Highland Lake in Bridgton. Built in 2004, this home is designed for comfort and spending time with family and friends. The open concept great room and loft provide beautiful lake views through the floor-to-ceiling wall of windows. There is a gracious screened porch and large deck as well as lots of lake access at the water.

Bridgton is a lovely small community just an hour from Portland with all the amenities you need for a great vacation. There is a real sense of community here with local restaurants, pubs, shopping, and recreation. This home is just minutes away from grocery stores, hospital, and drug stores just in case you forget anything you need.

This house is truly designed and located for enjoyment throughout the year. There are two bedrooms on the main floor next to the great room with a large full bath. Upstairs is a full master suite with queen size bed and full bath including a jet tub. The master has floor-to-ceiling windows looking out on the lake for a glorious morning view. Downstairs is a pool table/play room and bedroom with bunk beds (F+twin) plus a half bath and laundry area.

During the summer, lake living is the focus. Highland Lake has exceptional water quality, and at 1400 acres, it is great for all kinds of boating, from sailboats to powerboats to canoes and kayaks. There are lots of options for hikes in the area as well, and big hikes in the White Mountains are a short drive. In addition, the attractions in North Conway, Jackson, and Pinkham Notch are close by. Waterfront is beautiful and crystal clear.

In the fall, the legendary New England colors are the big attraction. With a beautiful lake framed by the mountains, this is a wonderful place to experience one of nature’s greatest displays.

In the winter, the most popular activities are skiing at Shawnee Peak or Sunday River. Shawnee Peak offers tremendous terrain with impressive night skiing at some of the most affordable prices in New England. Sunday River is one of the premier destination ski resorts in the East. There are also lots of options for other snow sports, with cross-country skiing and an extensive network of snowmobiling trails nearby. To fight the winter chill, come home to a cozy fire in the fieldstone fireplace. The radiant heating throughout keeps the whole house toasty warm. Since the house was built in 2004, you will not have trouble staying warm in this modern abode.

Keywords: 10 min. to Shawnee Peak, walk to town, beautiful views of Mt. Washington and the sunset, boats

This year I had an amazing time at this house. We had many great laughs and we all had a great time. We got to go skiing at the nearby mountain, Shawnee Peak. There were no broken bones like last year, so that was a plus. We all had a great time hanging out in the basement shooting pool, and just laughing. The sunrise over the lake is beautiful, and so is the sunset. The house is very close to the nearby town ice rink, which was also a lot of fun. We have had many great memories at this house, and hopefully more to come.

This year I had an amazing vacation in this house! I had a great time playing pool and shooting darts in the rec room with my family. We had so many laughs and such a great time. We also got to go skiing at Shawnee Peak Ski Mountain and had an amazing time besides for the fact that I broke my arm snowboarding. We also got to go snowmobiling on the local trails and go iceskating right in town. I cant wait for next year and hope we get a chance to stay in this wonderful house again!
