About the neighbourhood
Woods Pond is 2 miles long by ¾ of a mile wide and 29 feet deep in the center, giving you ample space for your favorite lake activities including swimming, boating, water skiing, sailing, fishing, kayaking, and canoeing. My home has two private sand beaches for swimming and lake lounging. One beach is 16 feet wide and you can walk out onto the sand directly from the lawn. The other beach is 20 feet wide, located down a few stone steps from the bonfire pit. These sand beaches are very special and unique—all the newer properties on the pond have rocky shores.
Getting around
Bridgton features 2 grocery stores (Hannaford’s and Food City), restaurants (Vivo Italian Kitchen & Bar, The Black Horse Tavern, Campfire Grill, Venezia, Mack’s Place, Ruby Food, House of Pizza, and more), places to get fresh seafood and Lobster (Hannaford’s and Highland Seafood), a golf course and tennis courts (Bridgton Highlands Country Club), public beaches, nature trails for walking and exploring (Pondicherry Park), a bait and tackle shop (Uncle Lunkers), and 2 movie theaters including a restored drive-in (Bridgton Twin Drive-in) and a rebuilt 'historic landmark' indoor movie theater (Magic Lantern Movie Theater & Pub).
