Denmark, ME Real Estate News

Depending on where you are, you'll enjoy views of Pleasant Mountain and the Shawnee Peak Ski Area, Black Mountian, Mount Washington and the White Mountains from Moose Pond in Bridgton, Sweden and Denmark. Though it's called a pond, Moose Pond is eleven miles long, one-mile wide at its widest point, covers 1,617 acres and has three basins. Apparently the northern basin area was once timber land, which would explain the stumps. Today, all three basins are favorites for anglers, boaters and swimmers. There are two boat launches.
