About this listing
On a back country road, between 2 crystal clear lakes, you will find a small family farm with wide open fields, horses all around, and the occasional wild animal grazing in the pastures. We welcome you to visit.
The quaint 1 bedroom apartment ( approx. 400 sq. ft. ) is located on the second floor of the large attached barn. A new chair glide helps those that need assistance. The windows overlook the pastures and fields, allowing lots of sunlight to enter the room. A small kitchenette with a microwave, coffee maker, toaster, and refrigerator allows for a convenient early breakfast, and nighttime snacks. Satellite TV and free Wi Fi are available in the apartment. A brand new queen size bed eases you off to sleep in the bedroom, and a pull-out full size bed in the living room allows for extra guests or children.
The apartment has a private entrance through the barn to the front driveway.
Interaction with Guests
Interaction is as much as you desire.
The farm is on a back country road with streams and fields along the way. The road offers scenery for walkers and joggers alike. An animal rescue facility is next door, and downtown Bridgton is only a short distance away. The area has 3 public beaches, and a ski resort less then 5 miles away.
There is no public transportation in Bridgton. However we are less then 1.25 miles away from town and the local beach.
Other Things to Note
Bridgton offers one of the last drive-in theaters in the country, as well as many hiking/ cross country trails for those nature lovers. Deertrees Theater in Harrison offers excellent summertime shows, and Shawnee Peak offers skiing and snowboarding in the wintertime. Fall foliage and spring flowers make for beautiful views along the back roads.
Some pets may be allowed. Because this is an active farm, with many other animals roaming freely, we must be assured our pets and yours remain safe. If you wish to bring a pet, please feel free to ask.
This was a LOVELY place to stay for the night! We would come back again any time! They went above and beyond to make us comfortable - and they provided lots of yummy cereal!
Wonderful weekend. Our hosts were exceptionally warm and welcoming. The tour of the farm was a big highlight for my 3 and 5 year old.
Betty and the family were very welcoming. The place was exactly as advertised and perfect for our needs. Thanks.
My wife and I spent several days with Betty, her husband, son, and grandson.
In a word FANTASTIC.
The unit was perfect ... the 'extras' included plenty of English muffins, butter, coffee, etc.
Even better was their hospitality.
The unit was great, and I look forward to visiting with them again.
WE LOVED STAYING there.
The hosts were friendly, considerate and helpful. The apartment is well-maintained and clean, with comfortable beds and nice amenities (plenty of options for a simple breakfast). The farm is beautiful, and our 6-year-old daughter loved the chickens, and was fascinated by the goats, alpacas and baby pig at the rescue farm next-door. Great location - near the public beach for swimming on the lake. Thanks so much to our hosts - we had a great time.
We had a lovely stay here. Brought along our puppy, who was welcomed by the family and their own dogs. Clean, comfortable space, well-stocked kitchen for breakfast, beautiful setting. We would definitely stay here again.
I was graciously welcomed by the Hortons. The apartment they created in the loft is really nice. Betty and Walt have thought of everything to make their guests feel right at home. I would not hesitate to highly recommend this facility to anyone visiting or vacationing in the Bridgton area.
