About Valarie Raines
We live in Texas and have been coming to Maine for vacations the past twelve years to visit our friends that live in Raymond, ME. We are a 40s/50s couple with two grown kids that have spent our lives living in Texas. We love God, family, Texas Tech, and visiting Maine every chance we get. Our goal is to spend our summers in Maine when we retire.
Valarie Raines purchased this House in 2015
Why Valarie Raines chose North Bridgton
As we have been visiting Maine over the past 12 years we fell in love with the lakes region. Our friends from Texas can't grasp why we would buy a property 2200 miles away until they visit and then they understand. To us it is a perfect house. It's on a beautiful lake, only a short drive west to the mountains with skiing, hiking, snow shoeing & snowmobiling. Another 40 miles east and your at the ocean! What more could we ask for.
What makes this House unique
With its perfect location it gives you the best of every season, from leaf peeping & small town festivals in the fall, skiing, dog sledding, snowmobiling, ice fishing to wife carrying contests in the winter, picking blueberries, strawberries & apples in the spring & fall and of course all the area has to offer in the summer. You will enjoy swimming, boating and fishing on our gorgeous lake or in nearby Casco Bay. TAX FREE shopping is only 30 miles away in North Conway NH. Great restaurants, amazing ice cream and the friendliest people in New England.

Beautiful vacation home! Happy Memories!
This property exceeded our expectations. From the moment we walked in we were bedazzled by the house itself. It accommodated us, our children, and their families with ease. Our hosts provided a well stocked home without missing any item imaginable. The beach toys had something for everyone of all ages including a floaty for the baby!
The beach was an easy walk across a quiet road, and with chairs in the shade and sun. The beach, dock, and float provided many hours of splashing, jumping, swimming, and fishing. Our group was happy and content to just hang out there and enjoy.
Evenings were aglow with a wonderful fire pit just a walk to and from the house, on the gently lit pathway.
It was truly a peaceful vacation in a comfortable home. Thank you so much for the experience!

Trust the Reviews
The reviews are all five stars for a reason. Our experience exceeded our already high expectations. We loved all of the amenities in this beautiful, spacious, air conditioned home, with outdoor fire pits, BBQ, and an outstanding private sandy beach with crystal clear water, dock and raft. We were able to totally relax and go at our own pace. For those so inclined, North Conway was a short drive for outlet shopping. Valarie was helpful and very responsive to our questions. We are hoping to be able to visit again. Now, if someone could do something with the exchange rate on the Canadian dollar, that would help.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We hope that you can come stay at our home again someday!

A great vacation week for our extended family
This property really had it all for our large (6 children - ages 3 -11 and 6 adults including grandparents) family. The home is clean, spacious and filled with modern amenities. It is laid out well so that each adult couple could have their own private space and the kids could be kids in the downstairs bunk-room. Everyone loved the sandy private beach and having the dock for our rented boat made water skiing and tubing an easy get away. We did a day trip to Conway (Storyland) which is about a 1 hour drive and also spent a fair amount of time exploring and shopping in the lovely town of Bridgeton. Valerie (the owner) answered all of our questions promptly and provided us with everything we needed to make the most of our week. Our whole group agreed we had one of our best family vacations yet.
We are so glad you took advantage of everything that Bridgton & the surrounding areas had to offer, and so happy that you’re already planning on coming back next year!
Great house. Beautiful beach.
House is beautiful! My children and nieces enjoyed sleeping in the cubbies! We had some rain so the movies and games in the house were great. The beach was perfect and the seats at the end of the dock was my favorite place to sit. We look forward to many summers here!
We’re glad you had a great vacation & hope to see you again next year!
Still amazing. We are already planning next year.
Perfect for our family. Attentive owners making sure you feel cared for.
We’re so happy you are coming for your 4th summer with us! As always thank you for taking such good care of our home!
Dave & Valarie
Memorable family vacation!
Our family of 9 enjoyed every aspect of this property. It is evident Valerie has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. An added bonus is the location, away from the busy Naples center, yet a beautiful boat ride away. The lake is pristine. We rented a pontoon boat from the nearby Marina. Thank you Valerie for sharing your home!
Already booked for 2019!
We are so glad you enjoyed the house & lake and are coming back to see us next summer! Thank you for the wonderful review!
