About the property

Long Lake Waterfront, 3 Bedroom, 3.5 Bath, Sun Porch, Large Deck, Weber Grill

Situated directly on Long Lake, in Bridgton, Maine, this warm and inviting 2800 square foot, beautifully maintained condominium is the perfect place to relax and unwind. It is one of 12 units on 20 acres of landscaped grounds. Unwind on the sun porch or the back deck and enjoy the view. A Weber grill is on the upper back deck for cookouts. There is also a lower back deck where beach chairs, rafts, sand toys and lawn games can be found. Guests of this property enjoy playing tennis on the tennis court and then relaxing on the Adirondack chairs in the tennis court gazebo afterwards. There is a large sandy beach area with a floating dock to swim out to and a stationary dock for jumping off. A second gazebo with Adirondack chairs can be found behind the unit overlooking the cove. There you can enjoy reading a book and watching the boats come and go.

The village of Harrison is a short, one-mile walk. In Harrison you will find an ice cream shop, a general store, and the village restaurant. Bridgton Academy is a short walk up the street. The town of Bridgton has a movie theater, a drive-in movie theater, antique shops, a bookstore, and many dining options. There are also two golf courses nearby, Point Sebago in Casco and Highlands Country Club in Bridgton. Shawnee Peak Ski Area is a ten-minute drive. Sunday River is a 40-minute drive. North Conway is a 30-minute drive.

At night, use the firewood under the deck to make a fire at the firepit on the beach. Make s'mores, stargaze, and listen to the loons on the lake.

The condominium is meticulously maintained, with three bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths. It can accommodate a group of up to eight people maximum. It has two living rooms, a dining area, a screened-in porch, a deck with patio furniture and a Weber grill, and a lower deck.

There is a secluded, private cove located directly behind the condominium where you may dock your own boat, a rented boat or a jetski. Please see our view in the photos. We overlook the cove.

The unit is just a few steps to the sandy beach area where you can enjoy sunbathing, reading a book under the trees or a refreshing swim out to the floating dock.

Once you've vacationed at this spot, you will find that no other vacation can compare.

About Owner/Property Manager

Our family has been visiting the Bridgton area for the last twelve years over the fall, winter and summer. We have enjoyed all of the special things each season brings: the Fryeburg Fair, apple picking, foliage; snow shoeing, snowmobiling, ice skating and skiing; sunbathing, swimming, kayaking, paddleboarding, boating, stargazing and, of course, the Portland Sea Dogs. Throughout our many travels, we have always compared each vacation to vacationing at Secret Harbor. We always find that our comparison ends with our saying, 'It was fun, but it's no Secret Harbor.' The fall of 2013 our family had the good fortune to buy our own place in Secret Harbor. We hope that you will find it as special a place as we have always found it to be.

Perfect place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have rented this property. Everything about it is perfect, including the beautiful spot overlooking Secret Harbor, where we docked our rental boat. It is quiet and you can hear the loons. We had family members and friends come and join my husband and myself for a few days at a time, and it is the perfect layout to do this, given the spacious deck (and lower walkout deck), bedrooms, fully finished basement, and generous 3.5 baths. We never felt crowded and enjoyed having our loved ones with us. And then some alone time for ourselves, too. All our guests commented on how well equipped this property is. These owners think of everything! We never lacked for specific utensils, beach towels, beach chairs, you name it, they have it. So while we brought our own food and household disposable supplies, everything else was already there. The property has also been improved since our last stay, with a deck extension among others. These property owners clearly care about and invest in their home. They are also very responsive, and responded immediately to our few questions when we arrived. Thanks for sharing your home with us, we hope to be back again!

A gem of a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Secret Harbor lived up to all of our expectations for a wonderful family vacation. The house was beautiful and fit all of the needs of our family of six adults and one ten-month old. It offered lots of spaces to spread out in. The screened porch was small but provided a wonderful space for reading and relaxing. When it was time for swimming, the beach was great, such a nice change from large community beaches. Not only was Long Lake good for swimming, but it was beautiful to kayak on. It was a bonus to see the loons feeding their babies. This was a true space to just relax and be...quiet, relaxing and fun family time.

A perfect stay at the perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this condo at Secret Harbor. The unit is beautifully decorated and very well-equipped. My husband and I enjoyed the first floor master bedroom suite with great closet space, large bathroom and direct access to the deck. During our stay, we had periodic guests who were equally comfortable in the rooms on the second floor.

We loved the spacious deck and screened-in porch overlooking the picturesque cove/boat harbor; in fact, we didn't eat a single meal inside during the week! Thanks to two large umbrellas, there is shade on at least part of the deck throughout the day.

The kitchen was fully stocked with plenty of dishes, utensils, pots and pans etc. which made meal preparation a pleasure. There were plenty of chairs to take to the lovely beach and the neighbors we met were very friendly (one couple we met even took us out for a lovely tour of the lake on their boat).

The condo is very conveniently located, close to both Harrison and Bridgton. We walked into Harrison to visit friends and stopped by the Harrison Old Home Days, went to fireworks in Bridgton and Naples (and even saw the ones in Harrison from the Secret Harbor property), hiked Hawk's Mountain and enjoyed fresh apple cider donuts, delicious strawberries and take out pizza from the Pie Tree Orchard.

The only thing that detracted somewhat from the ease of our stay as we do need to do some work while away was the wifi connection which was pretty weak and intermittent.

The owner was extremely helpful, both before and during our stay, providing tips of things to do in the area and timely answers to questions as they came up. We plan to return next year and highly recommend this property to others.

Owner's Response: It was such a pleasure having you as guests at our condo last week! I'm glad that you found everything to be comfortable. I apologize for the weak internet signal. We contacted our internet provider and have been provided with what's called an extender. We tried it out during the week after you left and it worked fantastic. We even got a connection when sitting down at the gazebo. Thank you very much for your kind review. We are looking forward to having you as guests again next summer!

Fantastic for the Whole Family!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place to stay! We arrived in unseasonably hot weather, but the windows were open, and fans had been deployed all over the house. We felt welcomed and right at home instantly. The bedrooms were large and comfortable. Everything was clean and neat as a pin, yet comfortable and inviting. The kitchen was well-equipped, and we were thrilled to find everything we needed for fun at the lake including a canoe with paddles! We had a couple of seniors in our party, and they were happy with the easy walk from the condo to the water's edge and the wonderful gazebo which offered much-appreciated shade. The small, screened porch off the dining room quickly became a favorite spot, and it was lovely to know there was a full entertainment system upstairs as well as down (the cooler temperature in the basement made it a great spot to nap while others enjoyed a movie or music upstairs). The owners kept in touch with us and were exceptional hosts. The grounds were well-maintained and quiet, and the neighbors were friendly. Overall, we could not be happier with our choice!

A delightful Maine Lake experience

  • 5 of 5

The property was well maintained and clean for use. Although the house is not air-conditioned, there are fans available which help a bit on very hot days. The owner was a pleasure to work with and very helpful for any needs such as finding paddles or kitchen items. We enjoyed our stay.

Our stay in Secret Harbor

  • 5 of 5

This condo had everything we could think of....beautifully decorated and was ideal for our family. There was a bedroom and a very spacious bathroom on the first floor which was very convenient for my husband and my one son and his family were very comfortable upstairs and my second son in the walkout basement...each with a private bathroom. The place is very well equipped with a kayak and a canoe...close to town. We will be back
