|Denmark Stage Stop House
The Denmark Stage Stop House began our vacation rentals in 2013. In 2010 we literally moved the original house, which was
constructed in 1807 back further into the fields. Since we now had a vacant foundation with septic, water and electric existing we knew
we must find a use for that foundation and construct something in this place. This is now the location where the Bungalow Cottage
now sits. After a lot of thought as to what to use this building for we thought we would try a rental cottage. It quickly became very
popular. During our first summer as a cottage rental we were completely booked from June through the first week of November. I
thought season would be over come Labor Day but the guests kept on coming into the first week of November and the constant
processional of guests started again Christmas Vacation week for ski season.
We are now a favorite among many of our previous guests and already have many reservations for summer 2015. Many of our guests
this winter are skiers, a lot of parents of students at Bridgton Academy in Bridgton Maine or just people looking to simply get away
Once we moved the original house we built an addition onto the original structure which is now the "main house" of The Denmark
Stage Stop House. We ended up with much more space than we could use, so part of the "main house" is now "The Shawnee Suite",
which is entirely separate with it's own entrance, bedrooms, kitchen and bath. The Shawnee Suite is very popular with families and
larger groups traveling together.
In the summer of 2014 we opened Stage Stop Ice Cream, the first and only ice cream shop in Denmark, Maine. We did not want to sell
just any old ice cream and were fortunate enough to obtain Annabelle's Ice Cream and frozen yogurt, an all natural ice cream that is a
favorite of many. Summer just wouldn't be summer without soft serve ice cream and for those that prefer soft serve ice cream we serve
Maine's Oakhurst Dairy soft serve ice cream. This summer we will be adding Dole Whip's fruit flavored soft serve ice cream, made
famous in the various Disney Resorts. Stage Stop Ice Cream is mobile and this past fall we participated in the Fryeburg Fair.
The reason behind our name "The Denmark Stage Stop House" is because when the home was purchased we told it used to a Stage Stop
in the days prior to the time when the automobile became the primary mode of transportation. The barn is equally as old as the
original house. So todays Denmark Stage Stop House is the result of combining old with new. Rather than simply tear the old house
down and simply rebuild we wanted to preserve the home's history. A major recycling job of sorts.
This basically tells the story to
where the original house once
stood, moving down the road to
where it sits today.
