The Denmark Stage Stop House is nestled between New Hampshire’s White Mountains and the Bridgton Lakes Region area, which offers year-round activities. Summer through Fall activities include hiking, swimming, boating, fishing, biking, kayaking and canoeing, sightseeing, antiquing, hunting, foliage views and much more, all the while being surrounded by the beauty of Maine and New Hampshire. Winter activities include skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, hiking for starters. For those that simply wish for a place to relax and simply get away from it all, we certainly offer that to. During the first week of October we also have the famous Fryeburg Fair, which is attended by close to 200,000 every Fall. For shoppers we are only a 25 minute ride from tax-free North Conway, New Hampshire with an abundance of outlet stores, including world famous LL Bean. Storyland in Glen, NH is only about 45 minutes away, which is always a very popular destination for our guests with small children.
Denmark Stage Stop House in Denmark Maine is located on an equestrian estate between Mt Washington Valley & Bridgton Maine. We are close to spectacular lakes, ponds and rivers and many outdoor activities and The Stone Mountain Arts Center.
The Denmark Stage Stop House offers 2 different types of accommodations where guests that arrived as strangers often leave as friends over the last 5 years since we opened our doors. Now that our very busy summer season has passed The Denmark Stage Stop is looking forward to a more peaceful and some say the best time of the year in Maine – Autumn! The experts are promising us vivid colors this Fall due to a drought we experienced earlier in the year.
I am always looking forward to hosting great people so I’ll be waiting for an inquiry from you and we can start discussing some more details from there.
Winter has arrived with 3 feet of snow in November and Shawnee Peak opening early than ever before on December 1, 2018.

The tap water at The Denmark Stage Stop is the very same water you get when you buy a bottle of Poland Spring's water as they are only down the road pumping water to fill their bottles and we place a gallon of that very special water in your refrigerator for you, so you have cold water to enjoy – no need to lug those bottles of water for your stay.
After 5 years of being in business we have developed a very strong following of repeat guests and now friends that return year after year and season after season and we would love if you joined us at The Denmark Stage Stop House.
During the summer months we are also in the heart of all the spring and summer offerings Maine has. In spring everything starts to come alive as the snow and ice melts away offering spectacular beauty as the springs, lakes, ponds and rivers come alive with lush flowers and green foliage to enhance that beauty. We are surrounded by beaches for swimming and boating, rivers and lakes for kayaking, canoeing and tubing fun. Saco River is only 15 minutes from The Denmark Stage Stop House.
Year-round we are perfect for either family travel and fun or the business traveler with great WiFi to keep on working and an array of indoor and outdoor games for families when you are not out and about.
