About Beth Dwyer

Our family has been coming to Moose Pond for 4 generations. Now that we all live in different parts of New England, Moose Pond seems to be the place that we come to be together as a family.

Beth Dwyer purchased this house in 1997

Why Beth Dwyer chose Bridgton

The family loved the location on the Pond for water sports and the closeness to Shawnee Peak for skiing.

What makes this house unique

The Point House is a wonderful lakefront home with unique frontage on Moose Pond. The Home has spectacular water views and usage. Fall is a magnificent time of year to be in Maine when the lake changes color. No matter the season, the Point House is the perfect place for your next vacation!

Perfect Family Summer Retreat in Maine!

  • 5 of 5

The Point House provided our family a great location for our annual summer gathering. The beach was perfect for the newest and youngest members of the family to enjoy – it was so shallow and clean and wonderfully sandy. There was lots of swimming, boating and fishing. The home was very clean and well-equipped and provided plenty of gathering space for 10+ members. We particularly enjoyed the evenings out on the screened porch playing games and doing the annual family puzzle. The upper deck made you feel like you were sitting in the tree tops… it is a lovely and peaceful place to sit early in the morning watching the birds waking up and flying by. Deb and her family were very accommodating and made our time in their home very special. We highly recommend this vacation property on Moose Pond. Great location!

A Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My family came up from the heat of NC to enjoy the most spectacular property we have ever stayed at in Maine. The large pine grove on the edge of the lake was gorgeous and the natural sandbar and crystal clear water were a blast to play in and enjoy. This is a great property for young families (the sandy beach) or older with great swimming and hiking right out the doors of the spacious and very comfortable home. Right now, we are trying to figure out the family schedules so we can make our reservations for next year. We want to go to bed to the sound of the loons again. I want to also thank the owners of this beautiful camp. They made our experience all the more enjoyable.
