Gorgeous home w/private hot tub, wood stove, firepit - near lake, skiing, hiking

You're going to love surrounding yourself with the beautiful trees of this amazing, updated home! Featuring a brand new private, huge seven-person saltwater hot tub, furnished patio, a gas grill, and an enclosed yard with a firepit. This two-story house is perfect for your next Maine vacation, no matter what time of year you visit.

Inside, the living room is dressed in burnished wood accents, comfortable furniture, and lots of natural light streaming in through broad windows at every turn. After a busy day of skiing, hiking or sightseeing, sit back and relax while you soak in our new hot spring spa surrounded by mother nature and gaze up at the beautiful stars above! When you're done enjoying a summertime hike or day at the lake, watch your favorite Netflix TV shows and movies while the private washer/dryer knocks out all that dirty laundry. The gourmet kitchen is full of stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and attractive cookware that will make family meals a joy to prepare in the oven with a built-in air fryer.

Winter guests will appreciate a location right on the snowmobile trail, and summer visitors will be near the lake for entertaining afternoons in the water. When it's time to wrap up an evening, you'll have three full bedrooms, two with queen beds, and the third with a twin bunk with a trundle and an additional twin bed. The loft has a king bed, TV, and a wood-burning stove - the ideal setting for a luxurious sleep or some privacy with a favorite novel. The home's high-speed internet and free WiFi make it quick and easy for remote workers and students to complete their projects on time. You'll even have AC units in every room, so it will be easy to keep cool on those hot summer days.

Explore the lake on a kayak or paddleboard or adventure on a motorboat and visit downtown Naples. You'll be less than two miles from the Long Lake Public Boat Ramp and four miles from Harrison Marina and many public beaches. You'll also be just two miles from Bridgton's quaint main street where you'll find shopping, restaurants, a movie theater, ice cream, a museum, a drive-in movie theater, and Shawnee Peak Ski Mountain Resort! The Loon Echo Land Trust is an excellent resource for hiking in the area, with well-maintained trails at Pondicherry Park, Mayberry Hill, Bald Pate, and Pleasant Mountain. Visit Gallery 302 to purchase gorgeous, locally made gifts, view the work of fifty artists on display, and take advantage of summer art classes and workshops.

Very comfortable home close to everything. The only downside was location to the lake. The listing makes it sound closer than it is to the lake and there were no instructions on how to find the right of way. The home is down a gravel road so you should have a suv or it would be difficult.

We loved staying here! There was plenty of space for all of us, and we could not have found a better way to get away. Our girls were asking to come back again before we even left!

For the second time in 3 months, we vacationed at the "Wine Down at the Sweet Retreat". The first time we had a beautiful view of the fall foliage and most recently we enjoyed the gently falling snow. It was nice being out in the woods while at the same time being a 5-minute drive from downtown Bridgton. Cooking was easy in the well-equipped kitchen even with multiple cooks! Given the outdoor temperature, it was very nice to snuggle under the warm throws in every room and read, watch tv, play games or just nap. This was a great family vacation!

Perfect temps, perfect house, perfect views! The post Labor Day trip was laid back and peaceful. Great time to take advantage of the area and it’s still dip in the lake temps, apple picking, hiking and not busy.

The house was one of the most stocked and well equipped I’ve ever stayed at via Vacasa, VRBO, or Airbnb. Tons of silverware, plates, serving dishes, even foil and storage containers. Cute touches like large popcorn bowl and a popcorn popper, metal expanding stakes for roasting marshmallows in the fire pit. Very clean, and beautifully and lovingly decorated home with nice furnishings and local art. Easily sleeps 10. The bonus room with the king bed is such a beautiful room with light and windows. I stayed in the large Queen room which was huge with plenty of room and cozy reading chair. Remote control window AC units worked great.

It’s just a few miles to Highland Lake Beach which is public access and so very pretty. Nice “beach” area for adults and especially kids as well as a playground. My 4 yo enjoyed it very much. Life vests in various sizes and tubes hanging up in garage for use. Very accommodating. Overall a beautiful stay in the trees with views of Long Lake down the driveway across the street and lots of nearby parks, hiking (we enjoyed Bald Pate), and the little downtown is super cute. We cannot wait to come back to the home and the area!!! A must stay!

My family and I just recently stayed here at the beginning of June. Ended up checking out a day early. If you notice at the bottom of the listing it states “renters are not allowed to use the private beach access per HOA” vacasa did not know this until I informed them of this upon checking in. Instead of partially refunding me they waited 2 weeks to get in touch so they could add this information to there listing and denied any partial refund. As for the house this is certainly more of a winter rental for near skiiing at Shawnee peak, clean and tidy. Only the back burners work on the stove which we didn’t find out until 2 days into our stay…this property is certainly not for accessing a lake especially since you have to drive into Naples to actually use it :/ I would not book with vacasa again
Manager response:
Hello Chelsey, We apologize for the misunderstanding with the lake access. It seems the HOA changed there access for rental guests prior to your check in date. We did send out emails to all upcoming guests notifying them of the change and changed the details on the front listing site for the property. The stove issue is being addressed, new stove ordered.

I stayed here with my family and could not be happier. The house was immaculate and located so close to Shawnee peak. I will definitely be coming back to this house!!
