The Suite has kitchenette. No stove for cooking, but you'll find many appliances to make your stay very comfortable. The Suite is right on Stevens Brook Trail, which is right across from our driveway (look for the sign into the woods), go straight towards the theatre, or walk right and down Bacon st., trail goes towards Highland Lake.

Had a great family trip. Charles was a great host. I especially enjoyed the bucket full of brochures of exciting things to do in the area. Loved the short walk to the lake in the evenings. He let us use his grill which was great.
My sister and I booked a LITERALLY last minute vacation (12 hours before we hit the road), and we were so happy to have found Charles' lovely suite. It was quaint, comfortable and modern. The location was wonderful-- walking distance to the beach, 10 min drive to additional beach/trails, walking distance to great cafes, antique stores.... it was more than we could have expected! Not only did we enjoy the space, but Charles was the consummate host-- when my sis got unexpectedly sick, he responded so quickly with great suggestions of nearby pharmacy, doctors, you name it. He definitely cares about his guests, which is nice. I hope to return....
We had a great time staying at Charles' Suite. The apartment was incredibly clean and comfortable for our party of 4. It is located just a 3-5 minute walk to the downtown area and convenient to restaurants, convenience stores, and shops. It is also only about a 10 minute drive to Shawnee Peak. Charles was more than accommodating and we would definitely come back.
We stayed at Charles' Suite for a ski weekend at Shawnee Peak. The suite was perfect and we found it exactly as described. Charles was friendly and was a good communicator. He was very prompt with responses, but never felt imposing. The suite really is in a great location. It's on a side street that was very quiet, but it is so close to the center of town. We would definitely stay here again.
The check in process was smooth and easy. Based on the website we had shaped an expectation of the suite and we were pleased to see that it was just as expected. We have been to Bridgton many times and love it. This two bedroom suite is another gem. A great place to stay in a strategic location with easy access to everything that one could need or want to do in town. The skiing was awesome and the short lift lines were a real bonus. We are already looking forward to coming back later this year!
Everything worked just fine. Easy to find, get the key and private. The lodging looked very new and was quite clean. Nice and close to our family and the visiting we were doing. thanks Charles - and thanks for offering some board games to us during our stay.
Safe, clean, convenient and exactly as advertised. Also, Charles is very nice and helpful.
