The space

This charming cabin sits on twenty acres of a high hill with views of mountains, hills, woods and fields. This is lake and mountain country, offering many recreational opportunities. Enjoy the pastoral setting where you can watch wildlife from the cabin porch and collect blueberries at your back door. The cabin was built in the 1930s on the property of an old tourist lodge and is now used as a writers' retreat. A popular destination for artists and writers, it has a living room with fireplace, kitchen, bathroom with shower, wrap-around porch, and two bedrooms with a double bed each. A short walk down the hill from the cabin is a private studio that cabin guests are welcome to use for WI-FI access.

Guest access

Guests have access to many hiking, mountain climbing, boating (including rentals) and swimming opportunities within a 5-mile radius of the cabin. The town of Bridgton with all amenities (including a drive-in movie theater!) is only 5 minutes away.

Interaction with guests

I live in the lodge down the hill from where the cabin is located, so I am readily available to answer questions about the area and/or quickly take care of anything needing attention in the cabin.

I expect my guests to be respectful of the land and the animals that live on it. I don't think the high porch is safe for children 2 years and under, but we can talk about it. . .

Great quiet getaway. Joan was a gracious host and I would have no hesitation of renting this cottage again.

Fabulous location. It was very quiet with beautiful views. We saw deer just outside the cabin in the mornings. Joan kept us informed of a storm in the area while we were enroute. She said that if we needed anything to let her know. A really nice lady.

The cabin really fit our needs. We loved how private and secluded it was. It was so quiet and peaceful. Joan was very accommodating. She was always available if we needed anything, but if we didn't need anything, she gave us our space. The best things about the cabin itself (besides the location) are the living room and the porch. The living room is comfortable and sunny. And we spent a lot of time relaxing on the extra large wrap around porch. All in all, a great experience. Also, not too far from shopping, restaurants, lakes and ponds. We loved the town of Bridgton.

This cabin was perfect for a quiet getaway. It is cute as a button with an amazing porch with amazing views. Check in and out was a breeze, and Joan was very understanding when our times had to change due to traffic. I highly recommend!

The cabin has a quaint rustic feel to it. The sunrise was pretty coming over the mountains. I highly recommend it to those whose enjoy the outdoors and want to disconnect and relax. The host ,Joan, was very accommodating and wanted to be sure we were comfortable.

Our stay at this little cabin was a delight! The cabin is sweet and inviting and was a very relaxing place to be. I found a warm spot in the morning sun on the wraparound porch that was a perfect spot to enjoy a cup (or two) of coffee in the morning. Joan is a wonderful host. She kept us in clean towels and helped us out by letting us borrow an iron when we found we needed one unexpectedly. Thanks Joan!

This was such a lovely stay. The cabin is much nicer than the pictures even indicate. I'd gladly return for some quiet writing time in the future.
