About Curtis Ranta
Several generations of my family owned lake property in the Berkshires. We enjoyed watersports and boating activites during our summers there and even some skating and xc skiing as conditions permitted. We used to have property at Sunday River and in recent years, we have enjoyed many mountains and lakes in Maine and New Hampshire, which are closer to our homes in Boston and the North Shore of Massachusetts. We are eager to continue to make memories with family and friends in our new home-away-from-home on the shore of serene Woods Pond. We are pleased to be able to offer our home for others to enjoy responsibly during some weeks of the year.
Curtis Ranta purchased this House in 2019
Why Curtis Ranta chose Bridgton
This home offers the perfect place for families to gather. There is space for everyone--an open concept inside and a large yard with easy access to the water. The lake is calm and quiet for viewing, swimming, and paddling...a lovely respite from our busy lives.

Te entire family enjoyed the long weekend. Plenty of kayaks, and canoe's to enjoy the water. Close to the town of Bridgton and it's amenities. Would defiantly consider going there again.
great house for winter play
I stayed at the house for 3 nights with my family (husband and 3 boys ages 13, 10, 8), my mom and my brother's family (his wife, their girls ages 3 and 1) and their dog. The view from the kitchen/living room/dining area is phenomenal. The kids loved the ping pong table and being able to sled in the backyard and skate out on the frozen pond. We had plenty of space for everyone. A few issues: The queen size mattress in the basement bedroom (where my husband and I slept) needs to be replaced - it was truly awful. The bunk room in the basement has no door - it would be great if there was at least a curtain there. And the baseboard heat in all but the bedroom in the basement wasn't working at all during our stay (living room, bathroom, bunk room thermostats). We brought this up to the owners but they were unable to get someone out to look at it until after we left. The main issue with this was that it was well below freezing at night during our stay and while the house held heat well, it was particularly uncomfortable to shower in the cold bathroom. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.
Amazing views and spacious
The views! Away from it all yet just 5 or so minutes to town. Nicely decorated, clean, loved it.
The family commented it was the best place we have stayed at on Woods Pond!
Great family spot!!
Amazing spot for a family of 8 or more!!! Phone and internet service was spotty at best but the outdoor activities more than cover that (and if it rains, head to the Magic Lantern down town for a table service movie theatre!!! Or spend the day at Bridgton Books (amazing comes to mind), a book store just like we grew up with!!
Just loved this spot, we’ll be back!!
Most beautiful and peaceful getaway
My husband and I had the most perfect vacation with our friends at the house on Woods Pond. The house is lovely, open, spacious, and has great water access. We loved being able to use the kayaks and spend our days floating on the lake. The house was truly perfect and we hope to return again.
