About Eric Braciska
Since my wife Andrea & I got married in 1993, we always had a goal of owning a Log Home. This became reality in 2011, purchasing a Contemporary & Elegant Log Home in Bridgton, ME, The "Ski Hive" Luxury Mnt Log Home Trailside at Shawnee Peak Ski Area. We fell in love so much with this area we launched "The Hive" Properties, LLC, a Vacation Rentals Business. In 2015 we purchased a second Rustic, Real Lincoln Log Luxury Mnt Log Home in Brownfield, ME (borders Conway, NH). "The Hive" At 35 Peaks View is 15 miles from Shawnee Peak & spurred the creation of a second small business, "The Hive" Outdoor Events, LLC (Hosting dozens of Large Outdoor Wedding Events annually). Our latest home endeavor in the summer of 2017 is, "The Hive" Lake House At Burnt Meadow Pond, also in Brownfield & only 3 miles away from "The Hive" At 35 Peaks View. With an huge track of private land (21 Acres) & sitting high above our 100 foot frontage with incredible Lake & Mnt Views, "The Hive" Lakeside At Burnt Meadow Pond provides another incredible property to add to "The Hive" arsenal of Luxury Log & Lake Homes of Western Maine.
Eric Braciska purchased this House in 2017

Eric was a great host he helped us a lot with any issues we had before booking. nice clean house, we had a great time.
Beautiful location, nice property.
Very nice owner, response quickly.
Perfect for what we were looking for
This place was beautiful all you need to bring is your clothes some friends or family and your camera! Host was very accommodating and definitely, definitely make use of the bonfire!
Great time at a great property!
Perfect house for a group getaway
We were sad to leave — this house met all of our expectations and had everything we needed for a lake house group trip in one place.
It was a bit hot when we got there, and even after we turned on the high powered fans that were provided, some of the rooms got really warm at night.
But overall, we would definitely stay here again.
Great for large groups!
We had a great time at the Hive. Eric was extremely helpful and the house had everything we needed. We arrived right at check-in and the cleaners needed an extra hour due to the large party before us and the condition the house was left in but we were in no rush and the house was spotless when we did go in. My only complaint is the upstairs shower faucet and sink drain were broken, likely from the large party before us. It wasn’t a huge deal as we had another 1.5 baths to use. I would definitey recommend and stay again myself!
