We just spent two wonderful nights at the Highland Lake Resort in Bridgton, Maine. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, comfy room and of course the natural beauty of Highland Lake. We were in Maine on vacation and this place really checked all the boxes for us. The private beach, the beautiful views up the lake, and it's located in one... More

So happy your stay here was so memorable! I've actually been to Palm Bay in the winter, and I greatly appreciated the beauty of the area when I'd just come from the cold and snow! I'm also glad you got to explore the town of Bridgton as well. With the great places to shop, eat, and visit, it really is... More

The rooms are a little small. If you are going there to stay mostly in the room, then dont. The tvs are so small that i need glasses to watch it. They are probs 15'' they should at least have 30 or 40 inches. Also the bathroom is small but the shower curtain was awful. However the amentites view and... More

I must agree with you on the room size. I, too, wouldn't want to stay in one of our least expensive rooms for a long time myself. Unfortunately, the rooms sizes are what they are, though other rooms are larger than the Regular Room with shower you were in. (The reason for the room sizes is stated in our response... More

Highland Lake Resort was clean, comfortable, and beautiful. We really enjoyed the lake (via the canoes / kayaks) and the grounds are well-kept. The managers were very welcoming. Wish Maine wasn't so far from Michigan!

So glad you had a great time! When I was a kid, my family owned a small camp on a lake less than an hour from here. I, too, enjoy exploring the lakes from a canoe, and find them to be tranquil and relaxing. Sorry we're so far from Michigan. I'll have to see what we can do about that.... More

Very friendly managers- Woody and Dee. We have be going to lakes region of Maine for 25 years and have always rented a camp for 2 weeks to a month. This time, we didn't have time, so thought we would stay at the Highland Lake Resort. This place has everything one should go to Maine for- beautiful property, excellent swimming... More

Thank you for your kind sentiments! Yes, the rooms are a bit small, since the building was the first "motel" built in the area not too long after the end of World War II. Back then, people had gas and rubber for tires, and just wanted to drive! Small motels and motor inns popped up around America to let people... More

Somewhat reasonable but definitely over priced for the return of services and location to amenities in town. IE: No internet but it's getting fixed tomorrow! Would be ok if we were staying.

Returned here 7-8 years later and the lakefront was just as lovely. Warm waters, sandy beach, a floating platform to which we all swam out, and gorgeous shaded area with picnic tables provided something for everyone, even on a partly rainy weekend. We didn't use them this trip but the property also has a tennis court and free canoes, rowboat... More

HURRICANES MAKE FOR TOUGH WEEKENDS! I am so sorry about that weekend! It was a trying time for all of us, and I'm sorry that there were issues that we tried, unsuccessfully, to correct! We are a small, family-run resort, and don't have the resources and staff that other larger, more expensive properties have. The weekend in question was, if... More

We just stayed one night (repeat trip) - but we just love it here. The room is a basic room - we took an efficiency with a small fridge, stove, Keurig coffee maker. It had a queen and a double bed. There are tennis courts and a game room, but a large yard for Frisbee or yard games. We took... More

Thank you for your kind words. We're truly glad you enjoyed your stay and got a chance to use many of our amenities. (FYI, there's no dock use charge for non-powered watercraft, and only a $10 per day charge for powered ones.) Hope you get a chance to visit again! --Woody More

We booked a room here for one night so we could enjoy 2 days of fishing. Our room was very clean, the staff was very friendly (and witty ;)), and the grounds were actually really beautiful. There were lots of chairs to sit by the lake... a good size fire pit... and a nice sand entry beach. Even though we... More
