At the end of the Migis Lodge driveway, hang a left.

image

It’s 15 miles from the Migis driveway to the center of Bridgton, Maine, well worth the extra 5 miles. (It’s 10 to the center of Windham).  Nothing in particular against commercial centers, but if you need to get a couple of things done AND you’d like to see a bit of Maine, hang a left at the end of the driveway.

I picked up my daughter from a matinee movie at the charming Magic Lantern today and was reminded how much I enjoy this little town.  Park on Main Street, or one of the convenient municipal lots behind the shops, and take a stroll.

Leave your car and you can walk…..to a good-sized Maine department store, to an independent bookstore, to a well-stocked public library, to a guided nature walk starting with a covered bridge, to a scenic park with picturesque bridge over the brook, to a nice spot for a meal or coffee and pastry, to the aforementioned theatre (home also to a pub) and a number of antique stores.  You can even visit an aesthetician at Kathleen of Bridgton!  And a little beach and playground at Highland Lake.

I have some photos here…some a bit bleak, as most are from early spring, but still gives you an idea.  Add warmth, flowers and grass in your imagination for a good representation of Bridgton.  Also, once back in your car, there’s a Hannaford Supermarket complete with pharmacy, so….and if you’re out late, a drive-in theatre!  Retro Tuesdays…next week double feature on Tuesday is Airplane and Stripes.  Laugh much?

And the hospital, and the white-steepled First Congo church, and the art gallery on Main, and the gastro pub…….

Yes, try turning left at the end of the driveway.  See a bit more of Maine while you are here.

Run, hide, swing, climb, clamber, slide, jump….and, soon, glide. SO much fun!

Well, Colby keeps adding features just when we think he’s done!  Here, anyway, is the beautiful new structure that the kids have already broken in and given their stamp of approval.image

It’s really spectacular.  We’ll let you know as even more gems get added!

Some space available here and there.  Reservations at 207-655-4524!

Our playground; back when it was a young sprout!

Our crew has been completing renovations to our playground, maybe wrapping it up today.  Here’s a quick look back to when it was built a dozen years ago, incorporating…nay, repurposing!…a couple of little staff cabins.  A look at the new structure coming soon.

Come play with us. Space available here and there, and lots of room to frolic for old and young alike.  207-655-4524 for reservations.
