Overview

Bridgton Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Escape to Maine’s picturesque mountain region in this meticulous, lakeside cabin in charming Bridgton.

Docked on crystal-clear Highland Lake; swimming, canoeing and fishing are just a few steps from your doorway. Enjoy the spectacular mountain lake view from one of the decks perched outside the living room or upstairs master bedroom.

The lake is a four-season vacation retreat, and offers jet skiing, tubing, boating and ice fishing. Ski runs are visible from your window, and the community offers hiking, golf and antiquing for active vacationers.

Amenities:

Your warm and inviting home is tastefully furnished, with whispers of its hunting lodge roots. Prepare gourmet meals in the ample kitchen or outdoor grill. Spend an evening relaxing by the fireplace, watching a movie on satellite TV or playing a board game while the sun dips behind green mountain peaks.

Comfy beds and the faint song of loons floating through the crisp mountain air melt away stress and invite you to fall asleep.

Bridgton and Beyond:

The friendly town features a quaint main street with storefronts and an historic movie theater. Nearby shops, markets and restaurants combine local flare and convenience.

In an hour’s drive, you can sit in the shadow of a working lighthouse, traverse Maine’s famed rocky shoreline, stroll through Portland or visit the outlet village in Freeport.

Thank you for taking the time to explore our rental opportunity. This inviting home is the perfect getaway for a couple or family in search of serenity and lasting lakeside memories. Many of our guests enjoy the experience so much, they make their stay on Highland Lake a tradition, and we look forward to welcoming them back each year.

About The Owner

For over three generations our family has been coming to Bridgton, ME, traveling from Boston, New York City and Florida to vacation with one another.

Our family has grown up on this lake swimming, boating, water-skiing and tubing.

What makes this cottage unique

Our home is the perfect place to bring family and friends together for some summer fun and much needed R&R.

The front porch just off the living room is the central gathering point of the house, which starts with coffee in the morning as the sun rises and the warmth of the day builds.

At any point during the day you have your choice of shade or the direct rays of the sun on the porch. The direct access and shallow sandy beach allow you to comfortably wade in the water or take the plunge into the clean lake water.

As the sun sets and the lake stills, it's happy hour on the porch with a glass of wine and great conversation. The smell of the grill fills the air and the only sounds are the loons on the lake, the crickets and laughter.

It's our escape from city life, we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Wonderful Experience in Everyway

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed staying at this cottage. The location was wonderful, away from town and at the quiet end of the lake. There is a sandy beach we walked to in addition to using the sandy beach in front of the cottage

The sandy beach in front of the cottage was perfect for the younger ones. They could use the stairs and play in the shallow water. We could sit in the furnished lawn chairs while the children safely played.

The dock was perfect for the boat we rented from Long Lake Marina. We rented a pontoon boat with tubing equipment. They delivered to the public boat launch. Everyone was very busy with tubing, kayaking and canoeing.

Mornings were very peaceful. We ate breakfast on the deck overlooking the serene water. At night we listened to the loons. A bald eagle swooped down and caught a fish right in front of us. Warblers were singing in the area at the end of the lake, near enough to walk around this area. The sunset was beautiful.

Inside we had all the amenities we needed. The internet worked great for all those who couldn't break away from their electronic devise. The kitchen was nicely furnished so we were able to prepare the limited meals we chose to serve. The fire pit was great for s'mores.

The cottage was clean and everything was in working order. The only suggestion would be for a way to rent linens and towels instead of having to carry these items on airplanes.

One day we went to Storyland in NH. Another outing was to Pie Tree Orchard for Maine maple syrup and fruit picking, but the rest of the time was spent on the lake. We did make a trip to the Gazebo for ice cream daily. Hiking and geocaching in the area were a nice change of pace for those who wanted to do something away from the water.

The owner sent emails with all necessary information, making it easy for us to know what to do and expect. The nearby property manager was friendly and unobtrusive.

Overall, this was a wonderful experience. We hope to return in the future.

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!!!

  • 5 of 5
This is a WONDERFUL home!!! Just as in pictures, but honestly BETTER in person!! I LOVED it & so did my kids (21 & 18yr olds). Everything you needed was there except bed linens, which IS mentioned for you to bring, so no problem! I loved that the master bedroom on the 2nd floor had it's own balcony! I woke every morning & took a step outside to say good morning to Highland Lake!! The views are awesome from that balcony & also from the main floor deck! I LOVE this house!!! It felt very comfy & welcoming when we walked in. The only thing I would change, is to have the 1/2 bath upstairs as a full bath (just would make it easier if more than 2 people staying at house & having to take shower's). This house felt like my own home for the week I was there. LOVE the kitchen!!!!
This wasn't my 1st visit to Bridgton. My in-laws owned a house at almost the other end of the lake, but it was sold due to my father in-laws passing, so having to been & stayed in this area for at least 20yrs & be able to find a rental home on the SAME lake in the SAME town.......PRICELESS!!!!!! This property is WONDERFUL!! There was a metal canoe, which my kids used to go fishing. The property manager next door (Sue & Sandy) brought over a kayak for my kids to use also. I purchased my "floaty-float-float" from Walmart & needed an air-pump & the property manager came to my rescue! I LOVED my stay here & have made the decision already, that I want to go back next year!! So did my kids!! This house was perfect for me & I loved how it was decorated!!! It had a nice tv in the living room & in the master bedroom. It had ceiling fans in the livingroom & all the bedrooms, which was great to have on a few nights that were alittle warm. I was able to sleep with the sliding doors (in the master bedroom upstairs) opened & woke up to a beautiful view of Highland Lake. My kids were happy with this house also, as they each had their own rooms! This house was perfect for us!! There are metal stairs the you can walk down right into the lake. That was great! A very nice pier to fish off of, as my kids did & also sunbath on. I LOVED this house!!! I LOVE Maine & now that I have been to this house, I will be going back every year!! What I really loved too, was that there was a info list on the frig, telling you about things you need to know about the house, like, where the garbage bags are located, about outside garbage cans, etc.
LOVE this house & WILL be going back next year!!!!! RENT IT!

My family of 4 adults and 2 small children enjoyed our recent vacation at this beautiful waterfront home. The photos are very accurate on the web site, no surprises when we arrrived. The home is clean and very well equipped with everything you would need, especially the kitchen area. You can't get any closer to the lake and the views are spectacular. The deck is very spacious with a large gas grille, many chairs and a dining table. The lake is very clear and has a sandy bottom with easy entry for small children or the elderly. We loved having a fire each night in the fire pit outdoors. We were concerned about only having one large trash barrel for an entire week, but the Property Manager (next door) came and took away the trash for us after a few days, so it was not a problem. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a great place on Highland Lake.

This house was the perfect vacation spot. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about it. It was very neat & clean with everything amenity you would ever need. It had a perfect spot on the lake with great views and close proximity to the water. It has a great waterfront with a sandy beach for young kids. The lake is quiet and serene. I can not say enough nice things about this house. I highly recommend it.

A Beautiful Place to Vacation...

  • 5 of 5
We vacation in Maine often and this is, by far, our favorite place to stay. The views simply can't be beat! The home offers an amazing panorama of Highland Lake and the large windows in the main living space really take advantage of this. The living room opens to a VERY large deck which offers a fantastic outdoor living area. The home is very well kept, clean and nicely appointed. The proximity to North Conway (about 40 minutes) makes for a nice day trip on a rainy day, or just a change of scenery. There is golf and tennis close by, and of course, lots to do on the lake! We hope to continue vacationing at this property for years to come!

Wonderful Getaway, beautifully appointed home on the lake

  • 5 of 5
I've had the opportunity to stay at this home 2x (in 2009 and 2011). Both stays provided wonderful memories, and I hope to go back again.

The house itself is very clean, has everything you need and feels . . . quaint and welcoming. It was much nicer than I was expecting for a home RIGHT ON A LAKE. It had all the amenities from home, even a dishwasher, satellite TV, washer and dryer, etc.

The best part: THE VIEW. It can't be explained, it has to be experienced. You are RIGHT on the lake. There are mountains in the background, and beautiful sunsets and sunrises. The lake is perfectly still in the morning, and one of my favorite memories was having a cup of coffee on the deck before the rest of the family woke up.

The house is on a nice wooded lot, has a canoe, etc. Neighbors are far enough away that you can't hear them. It's a nice, secluded area.

Would have loved it it had a giant flat-screen TV, but to be honest, I was up there to relax and get away, and it was nice to do fun things with the family other than watch TV. My 3G service worked well, so was able to use my iPad, even though there was no high-speed internet.

I like this part of Maine a lot. We are a family of 4 that lives in New Jersey, and the trip itself was actually half the fun. It's a beautiful ride, especially in the Fall when we took our trips. When you arrive at the home, you feel like you've really gotten away; it's hard to describe, but you feel like you're far enough that work and stress can't follow you.

The owners are a pleasure to work with, and the price is definitely right considering the experience. Looking forward to next time!
