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 well kept property

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six adults and three children had a lovely time here. The beach was great and easy for young children to walk into but had a nice dock as well as a swim out float for the adults, which had pop up lounges. Nice lounge chairs on the beach. The garage was filled with many kinds of beach toys and floats. We especially liked the gas fired fireplace just outside the main house so the adults could enjoy after dinner company and be close enough to hear the children. Kitchen was well supplied as we all like to cook. The owner was helpful and answered questions when we called. Be sure to notice that while linens are included there is an extra fee which I didn't see until about a week before. I would recommend this place.

Beautiful Home and Beach!

  • 5 of 5

A great visit for our family, we especially recommend if you have kids. The kid zone/sleep area downstairs is wonderful and the sandy beach is perfect for little ones. The owners even provided sand toys and beach floats! One of our favorite, unexpected bonuses was the 10 minute canoe ride to nearby Harrison harbor for ice cream!

Owner's Response: Katie, We are so happy that you enjoyed our home & the sandy beach lake area. Some of our favorite things to do is boat over to the nearby Tie Up Store where you can get just about anything to eat & then have ice cream next door while you sit outside on the tables by the lake. We hope to see you again next year. Kindly, Valarie & David

Awesome House on Long Lake!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an amazing week on Long Lake at this beautiful house. The house was perfect for our party of four adults and six young children. The kids loved the sleeping cubbies in the basement and the owners have truly thought of everything that we could have needed for our week. From the fully stocked coffee bar to sand toys and inner tubes for the lake this house has it all. It is not your typical rental house and the owners were super responsive and provided all those smal items that most rental house owners don't take the time or effort to provide.

This house is truly a 'gem' on Long Lake and perfect for a family vacation.

Fantastic Vacation Property!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you David and Valarie for sharing your beautiful Maine home!

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were treated to a very well maintained property that had every amenity you could need. From a kitchen that had every gadget and appliance to the water toys and fire pit and wonderful screen porch, dock and swimming raft... the list goes on and on.

The location is awesome too! We really enjoyed renting a pontoon boat from Gateway Marina, in walking distance from the property. Cruising the lake was lots of fun... Kids took a plane ride and rented a Jet Ski in nearby Naples. Got a chance to feast on some Lobstah :) at one of the great restaurants and got to do some shopping too.

We lived in NH years ago and didn't realize how much we missed sleeping with the windows open at night... with loons calling from the lake. So peaceful! A much needed break from the heat and humidity of FL!

All in all... If you want a great place for your family vacation this is it!

Thanks again!

Doug & Linda

Amazing Home - Perfect Family Lake Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We could not be more pleased with our stay at this beautiful home, it truly is "heaven on the lake". The house is absolutely beautiful, perfectly located at the end of Long Lake with very little boat traffic. There is a very large beach area, plenty of room to hang out and play games or just sit and relax. We loved the dock with the wooden benches and umbrella, that was a great place to sit during the afternoons. We had 2 boats - spent several days on the lake swimming, tubing, floating on rafts and sightseeing. There were 12 of us and we all fit very comfortable with more room to spare! Valerie was an absolute gem from beginning to end. She was a pleasure to work with and extremely accommodating! During the evenings if you time it right you will see the moon rising over the lake directly across the driveway - it was simply beautiful. We had a great week, loved your home it was so comfortable and beautifully decorated! Thank you again for allowing my family to have their own piece of Heaven for a week! I hope we can come back some day for another vacation!

Songo River Queen does 1-2 hr tours daily on Long Lake at the Naples Causeway, it is an old paddleboat built around 1900 & holds about 200 people

Also there is a small plane that does 30 min tours at Naples Causeway

Restaurants, Ice Cream and shopping there and in Harrison (1/2 mile away) you can boat over or drive to Bridgton (5 miles away)
