Please read our full description to familiarize yourself with The Denmark Stage Stop House.
We do no have any “HIDDEN” fees such as those for cleaning therefore no charge for cleaning and no security deposit required, which up to now has worked very well as all of our guests have been very responsible. We do require a $25.00 cleaning fee for guests opting to bring their dogs (no more than 2 allowed). This is to cover the additional cleaning required to make the next guest's stay who may not be pet friendly or have allergies, just as comfortable as you own. As a dog owner myself we all know are dogs can be a little messy even though they don't mean to be. The $25.00 cleaning fee for pets is per stay not per dog.
While the 2 bedroom Shawnee Suite is structurally part of the main house, it is completely removed from the residence with it's own entrance on an opposite side. Your privacy is very important to us and we strive to always protect that. The Shawnee Suite is on the ground level for easy access for our guests. In fact, we rarely even see our guests unless they opt to interact with us and we appreciate how important your privacy is to our guests. The Shawnee Suite is surrounded on by pasture and garden views. The outside grilling and seating area is yours and yours alone as well and again completely removed from any activity in the main house.
Bridgton Academy parent's year after year have chosen The Denmark Stage Stop House as a comfortable place to call home while their children are attending Bridgton Academy.

We are just entering our 4th year offering superb guest accommodations. We have rave reviews on Airbnb and (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN). Many of our guests have returned more than a few times and many tell us they are keeping this place their secret and not telling their friends, although we certainly wish they would.
We are only one mile outside Bridgton Maine and only 5.4 miles from Shawnee Peak Ski (AKA Pleasant Mtn.) for great hiking. When you choose the Shawnee Suite you save even more with a full kitchen to prepare your meals vs. having to eat meals out at a restaurant, although there are plenty of restaurants in the area. We also offer our Bungalow Cottage for up to four people at a lower rate.
Stone Mountain Arts Center for Performing Arts is only a short distance away. At Stone Mountain Arts Center is an intimate performance hall situated in the foothills of the White Mountains.

We are available at anytime during our guests stay for questions, issues or anything at all - even to find the best restaurant around - all you have to do is ask. We are generally on site but if not I am only a phone call or text away. If you want absolute privacy that's OK too.
We like to be available to greet our guests, however on very night late arrivals that may not be possible but no worries about checking in 24 hours. Late arrivals are not a problem at all-just let us know your expected time of arrival and we will make the appropriate arrangements. Late arrivals are much more common than early arrivals around here since everyone travels from Mass, New York, etc, so no matter what time you arrive you will be able to access your accommodations.

Getting around in Denmark, ME generally requires a vehicle as there are no restaurants, (except our Stage Stop Ice Cream, which is open seasonally during the warm weather months) or stores within walking distance, which is part of the charm here.
Free Parking on site for guests
We do our best to employ green practices whenever possible. We use environmentally safe lighting throughout our properties, our properties are insulated to a very high standard reducing our use of fossil fuels, we use environmentally friendly cleaning products whenever possible and employ recycling.
We take your safety (and ours) seriously. For this reason we make sure we have WORKING smoke and CO detectors and fire extinguishers in all of our rentals.
As a dog lover too I do not travel anywhere without "Cowboy" and his comfort is as important as my own, so I understand how important it is to find a place that really is pet friendly.
Disponible para huéspedes

Otros aspectos destacables
While we do not have cable TV, we do have local channels available but also provide Netflix, Amazon and now DirectTV with cable channels! No need to have your own accounts on any of these - we have that all taken care of for you!
No more than 6 people permitted in our Shawnee Suite. There is an additional charge of $15.00 per person after 4 guests -no exceptions.
Guests are responsible for any major damage that they cause during their stay- this does not include minor things like broken dishes, burned pans, those things that occur in everyday life but things like leaving water on and flooding rooms, fires, major damages, etc are the responsibility of the guest.
No more than six (6) people occupancy - no exceptions.
Please note we do not charge a cleaning fee, but of late we have had quite a few guests leave behind quite a mess to clean up. While we expect to do the normal cleaning, i.e., vacuum, laundry, general clean up, etc, it is not our responsibility to clean up after you. If you spill things all over the place and make a mess while cooking, etc. it is your responsibility to clean it up - we are not expected to "clean up after you". This has not happened before the last month or so and are a little baffled why is appears to the norm as of late. Please be courteous and pick up after yourselves. Don't leave garbage on our kitchen counters, etc. For this reason we have had to add a fee for additional guests over 4 of $15.00/person/night. If you are one of our regulars and have a positive booking history with us, please contact me prior to booking via Airbnb and I will eliminate the extra guest fee. It is very disheartening to enter the unit after a guest departs and see a total mess!
HOUSE RULE - clean up after yourselves and leave our place as you would want someone to leave yours.
This rule is VERY IMPORTANT, while we want everyone to enjoy our horses (from a distance), there is absolutely no contact with the horses. This is mainly due to our insurance restrictions, but also as beautiful as horses are they are large animals and they do bite and kick - it's all part of being a horse. So please realize we are not being mean, just safety conscious.
Please note that we want everyone to fun however this is not a "party" house and has to be respected as such. While we have no problems with alcohol consumption, overly intoxicated individuals will not be tolerated and those individuals will have to leave the premises. Keep in mind that we have other guests on the property and residents.
No drug use of any sort will be permitted on or in the premises.
No more than six (6) guests are permitted to stay in the Shawnee Suite and no more than 4 guests are permitted to stay in our Bungalow Cottage, absolutely no exceptions and extra guest fees will apply.
No Smoking Indoors, but outside is fine as long as you properly dispose of cigarette butts.
Absolutely NO CANDLES, NO OPEN FIRES (except use of the pit on the patio), no burning of incense, etc.
While we welcome your dog, we do collect a refundable pet deposit of $50.00. We cannot permit Pit Bulls or Pit Bull crosses due to our insurance regulations and we do not accept viscous or aggressive dogs.
ALL DOGS MUST BE LEASHED WHEN OUTDOORS ON THE PROPERTY.
We truly hope to be able to continue allowing you to vacation with your dog at The Denmark Stage Stop but that is dependent on guests following the rules as it pertains to their dogs. We are one of very few that allow dogs and hope to keep it this way.
NO DOGS ALLOWED ON ANY OF OUR FURNITURE OR BEDDING EVER - PLEASE.
Please clean up excessive dog hair daily.
Dogs may not be left unattended in rooms, units or cottages. Exceptions may be granted if the dog is crated and does not bark excessively. We are open to being lenient on this rule, but it would be based on a case by case basis once we meet your dog. Please understand, as I am sure you already do, but dogs get scared and lonely being left in a strange place and become mischievous when they are mad at you. We have had far too many comforters, blankets, sheets and rugs chewed, which is why we have to implement this rule.
