This beautiful year round, waterfront home is located on crystal clear Highland Lake, a short walk to the quaint village of Bridgton and a 5 minute drive to Shawnee Peak Ski Area. The house sits directly above the water's edge on 350' of water frontage. A small private beach cove with a very gradual sandy entry is perfect for young children. This house is an ideal spot for families to vacation year round. Swim, boat or fish right from the back door. Or sip your favorite drink on one of 2 decks or in front of our beautiful fireplace.
Originally built around 1850, the house was completely renovated in 2012, adding contemporary features while maintaining its historic charm. There are stunning views from nearly every room, including the ultramodern kitchen with state of the art stainless appliances as well as quartz countertops. Two outdoor decks, one open and one covered, offer breathtaking views of the lake, loons and Mt. Washington. There is also a private dock for mooring your own boat or if you choose to rent one from one of the many local marinas, as well as a separate dock to relax and read, fish or daydream . A barn/garage was added in 2015. The upstairs is unfinished but contains a ping pong table.
Bridgton is centrally located with many restaurants, drive-in and sit-down movie theaters, antique stores and shops close by. A 30 minute drive to North Conway or Sunday River, a 5 minute trip to Shawnee Peak, make this is the perfect location to enjoy swimming, hiking, fishing, shopping or just relaxing.

Why Kathy Masterson chose Bridgton
Bought this unique property because of the location. House was a partial teardown......but it was the location on the lake and its close proximity to the downtown and winter activities made us fall in love with it!

Fabulous lakeside home offers vacation perfection
This house was perfect for our "Brady Bunch" of two families, plus the kids' friends. First off, the location - literally ON the lake, with multiple docks and decks, windows opening to the breeze ... you feel like you're in paradise.
We had so much fun on the kayaks and paddle board, swimming and wading. We hiked on many of the nearby trails, including Mount Pleasant. The well-equipped kitchen allowed us to easily feed - and clean up after - our large group. All of the bedrooms are well-appointed and comfortable, and there are three additional rooms in which to lounge and play games.
The fact that Bridgton is walkable was a real plus for us - parts of our group could stroll to the shops or for coffee, and we walked to ice cream almost every night.
The owners were very responsive to our questions. Check in and out was easy, and instructions were very clear. We had a great vacation and definitely would come again! Highly recommended.
This house just seems to be getting better and better each year. We had a great time. The layout is perfect for people that want to either relax upstairs with little noise, or have a great time throwing darts downstairs by the warm fire. The new addition to the house is also great for storing shoes and jackets when you come in from a great day of skiing at the nearby mountain, Shawnee Peak. We hope to be back next year, and have even more fun!
Great Family Vacation
The house is perfect. It is beautiful and comfortable. Sleeping was great - the beds were wonderful and the lapping of the lake immediately beside the house lulled us right to sleep. We loved the kayaks, paddleboard, and the two person sailboat. My father-in-law enjoyed fishing right from the porch. It is a quick walk into town. At night we enjoyed sitting by the fire pit on the sandy beach. On top of everything, the owners are excellent to work with. Communication with them was great and they were very accommodating. They even suspended construction on their new garage/game room so as not to disturb us. We will definitely be back.
So glad you enjoyed! And thanks so much for your sewing repair of the sail along with your other fixes! Hope to see you next year!

Loved the house!! Perfect fit for our family plenty of room for all. Location great, views from all the rooms outstanding. Can't wait to come back again next year.
So happy you enjoyed! See you next year! Best, Kathy
This year, me and my family had a wonderful experience at this beautiful lakefront house. The views are great, especially in the kitchen with the wrap around windows. we love the location, right on the lake and really close to town. The house itself is just spectacular. We had many fun nights laughing playing darts, and other nights we all hung out and watched a movie in the den area, and the gas fireplace was perfect for keeping everybody warm. An added bonus is the heated floors, especially after a long day of snowboarding at the nearby mountain Shawnee Peak. Another great feature that was incorporated into building the house was the surround sound stereo throughout the house. There are so many things to do in the great little town of bridgton, and we are already looking forward to coming back next year.
So glad you enjoyed our home! Looking forward to having you back next year.
Paradise in Maine
We had an unforgettable time at Vacationland. The space is beautiful and you instantly feel right at home. The architecture & design, the panoramic views, the lake a step from the door & the "little" details (surround sound stereo piped throughout the house, HEATED FLOORS + more) make for the perfect getaway.
A short walk to an adorable town, surrounded by endless nature adventures in the beautiful state of Maine. We were here in the Winter and enjoyed many walks on the frozen lake. We can imagine how lovely it will be to swim in this beautiful lake during a Summer visit.
Thank you for welcoming us into your home...it sets a very high standard for vacations away! WILL BE BACK!
