Summer will finally arrived and the rivers, lakes and ponds are coming alive to get ready for a busy, active summer for you and your family or friends!! New this year -
we have new flooring throughout our units, new queen beds in both our Bridgton Bungalow Cottage and Shawnee Suite, along with new 4K Ultra HD TV's for our guest's

Our goal at The Denmark Stage Stop House is to do our best to always be one step above whether you choose our 2 bedroom Shawnee Suite (sleeps 6) with full modern
kitchen or our stand alone Bungalow Cottage (sleeps 4) or. We offer comfortable updated accommodations where details count, from our comfortable bedding with
heated mattress pads and blankets for our winter guests, a welcome gift basket with local products such as Maine made jellies, farm fresh eggs and more. Just because
you are in Maine it doesn’t always mean you need to stay in accommodations that may be just a little too rustic. We have the perfect accommodations whether you are
traveling on your own, a couple looking for the perfect getaway or a group of friends and family.
Upon arrival you will find a couple of amazing handmade chocolate truffle confections at your bedside from our local chocolatier the Bavarian Chocolate Haus in
Bridgton Maine to welcome you – very few guests have waited until bedtime to try these amazing chocolates.
We offer terry spa robes and hair towels for our guests, private baths in all our accommodations and a digital copy of our very own local paper The Bridgton News where
you can see all the local events going on during your time with us. Our bathrooms offer an electric fireplace for added warmth and ambiance while soaking in our antique
The Denmark Stage Stop even has a local massage therapist (additional fees apply) that will come to you to soothe away those tired, achy muscles after a full day of
skiing, hiking, swimming or the stresses from your everyday life at home. While we are not a “true” bed and breakfast” we come close while offering you the privacy of
your own vacation accommodations that you don’t find in a B&B. We want your “Maine Experience” to be more than simply a place to stay. See our reviews for what
our guests say, including a wise well traveled owl.
Social Distance and Enjoy the Outdoors at The Denmark Stage Stop House in Denmark Maine!
Are you about to lose your mind being hold up in your otherwise beautiful condo, apartment or house? We offer a solution to getaway from today and tomorrow's
stressful situation. Give you children somewhere where they can have outside time and fun. It is easy to Social Distance at the Denmark Stage Stop House on 7-acres!
If you are looking to run to the hills or the mountains, here we are in beautiful very rural Denmark Maine. Rather than being locked down for weeks on end staring at
your walls, come enjoy the freedom of the outdoors on 7-acres.
Like everyone else right now dealing with COVID 19 or the Coronavirus, we were filled with uncertainty as to how to proceed during this crisis. I was concerned with
not only my safety, the safety of my staff and more importantly the safety of our guests during this COVID 19 or Coronavirus outbreak. Like me, you probably never
thought you would see something like this during your lifetime. Fortunately for me I have past experience as the owner, operator and manager of a quarantine facility
for horses that traveled to the United States from the European Union. These were some of the top performance and show horses coming over to the U.S. and I had
strict guidelines that I had to follow per the USDA. So rather than panic (but I do have my moments) I went back to my many years of experience to make the best and
safest decisions on how we should proceed at the Denmark Stage Stop House. These are the steps I decided to take vs. closing entirely during this COVID 19 or
Coronavirus crisis to protect all.
The Denmark Stage Stop House is the perfect place to "Social Distance" during this crisis, whether it for one week or a couple of months. Since I am on 7-acres, with
fields and pastures, it gives you and your family ample space to go out and walk, relax or play games without contact from the outside world. With that being said
there is no reason you cannot go out and enjoy a nature walk on trails, or a hike up Pleasant Mountain and other places. The other day I took a ride up to Mt.
Washington and never came into contact with another person. Speaking of Mt. Washington, you can take the Mt. Washington Auto Road, up to the summit in your
own vehicle. As for lakes, ponds and rivers - they are indeed here, but whether COVID 19 stays viable in fresh water remains to be seen, so that lakefront home may
not be all you are looking for this year! So far I can only find statements such as "it should be safe to swim in pools if probably chlorinated" but as summer
approaches I am sure that will be clarified.
- Starting immediately we will only accept 7 day minimum stays.
- After a guest stays those accommodations will be closed off for 3 full days before we even enter to clean. This gives the COVID 19 virus time to become less
viable, making it safe for us to begin cleaning.
- Our cleaning regiment is stringent, strict and detailed. From the very beginning I new it was time to stock up. I purchased strong anti-virus disinfectants
(virucides), the same I used when operating my quarantine facility. I purchased many gallons of 99.9% isopropyl alcohol to make very effective cleaners and
hand sanitizers along with many gallons of bleach. And yes, lots of toilet paper, paper towels and more. I acted early so I was able to obtain all these products
and enough to get me through months, if need be. I paid dearly for all these products, because although I ordered early the prices were already rising to record
amounts. I spared no expense!
- Our cleaning process is a 3 step process!
- We initially wipe down all surfaces with antibacterial soap and water
- We then use a disinfectant that remains on the surface for a full 10 minutes
- We clean these surfaces a 3nd time before leaving the accommodations with a 70% alcohol spray.
- This cleaning process is now taking between 6-8 hours, depending on the unit, vs. 3-4 hours prior to COVID-19
- We clean every doorknob, light switch, any all items that a guest would possibly touch. I treat each accommodation as I did as if they were in my quarantine
facility. I have trained my housekeeper personally and she does have some medical training in her background so she was very receptive, willing and not
complaining at all - so thank her should you run into her! The chances of that actually happening though are nill to none as we will not be having any contact
with our guests during their stay for everyone's sake. Of course, I am still available to you but only through email, text, telephone and of course Alexa! I highly
doubt a hotel has my training or trains the housekeeping staff to the level they need to be trained during the COVID 19 crisis. The sheer numbers alone of how
many people pass through each and every room is enough to terrify me.
- As always all towels, sheets, blankets, duvet covers and such are laundered using the most strict guidelines, whether it is bleach or a virucide, depending on the
for everyone's safety and well-being.
- In accommodations with no kitchen, we will no longer be providing you dishware to eliminate the need to come to your unit everyday to get dishes to wash, but
instead will be providing disposable plates, glasses, cutlery, etc. It is not that we don't want you to have the regular dishware, etc., but rather we are looking out
- Beyond these steps there are many more to protect the safety of our guests and staff. I never thought my many years as an owner of a quarantine facility would
come into play ever again but it has and I am very grateful to have had that experience. We did have a saying though in the quarantine, it was never of matter of
if but when and that is where we are today.
- We have also eliminated many amenities such as the led candles, tea light candles, anything unnecessary and an additional point of contact. So if your favorite
amenity is no longer there, please understand why - it is for your safety and well-being.
- With all these measures and steps our cleaning times, which were anywhere from 3 - 6 hours, depending upon the unit, are now 6 - 8 or more, plus the 3 days units
are left vacant after each and every guest. To that end we have had to increase our rates significantly or close entirely and despite the many added expenses I
chose to go on, putting my many years of experience quarantining to good use!
- We will not be accepting guests from any "hot spots" in the country as they evolve, nor will we be accepting guests that have flown here or taken any form of
public transportation such as Amtrak, etc. Drive to Denmark Maine and enjoy the scenery along the way!
- A few other items we want you to know. Bring your own pens, pencils, paper, anything like that as we will be removing these items from each and every unit.
While I do apologize, I am sure you see the sense in this! When inquiring or booking please ask what you need to bring as this situation will be updating all the
time as I see the need.
- See our COVID 19 TIPS ABOVE for some helpful information in staying safe and well!
- A 50% non-refundable deposit is required to book and guarantee your reservation. Refunds will be granted however, in the event all travel is prohibited by the
United States government, illness with a doctors note provided. We certainly are willing to refund in certain circumstances, put generally we ask you do not
book unless you are certain.
We will still be accepting your dogs and yes, even your horses but please communicate this with me when inquiring about a booking.
