Guestbook comments from the manager
we have stayed in the Lesniak cottage more than one occasion with our preteen and teen children and had a relaxing, fun, blast! The lake really is quiet and private but so close to LL Bean and shopping - for the teens, Seacoast fun Park - for the teens, and even Porland Historic oceanfront - for all! The kids favorite was when we rented the guided water ski boat and the kids went tubing and waterskiing - with great lessons from the owner! The kids' favorite part was when us parents actually went tubing as well! Who had more fun?! the cottage was very similar to the add: clean, nicely decorated,comfy, a very small TV (good thing!), camfires at night, the peach deck, and truely relaxing family time. Oh! and the amazing sunsets along with going to sleep with the loons was really cool.

The owner lives in Pennsylvania, but has had roots and family in the Portland area for years. She has four children and has summered in this Cottage for years, and proudly calls it 'home'. She plans to retire here after all the children have grown.

The property manager is a dear friend and lives just a quarter mile south on the lake. She is meticulous for detail and pays close attention to the needs of the Cottage and those of it's guests.

Chantal purchased this cottage in 2001

We boast the best deep water frontage on the Lake-makes for a sandy bottom without weeds, and nice boating/swimming frontage. We appreciate the warmth of the sun all afternoon and the beautiful sunsets every night accross the lake. We share a double lot on one side with a family friendly neighbor - gives added privacy and space. The 'peach deck' makes for great book-reading, meals, and drinks and relaxing at the water's edge.

Rural, classic lakefront feel, yet just a few miles to all modern amenities, ocean experiences, and much entertainment.

Fabulous cottage on beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived at the cottage it was immaculate. The pictures do not do the view justice, the second we pulled into the driveway we were overlooking the lake. The kids immediately jumped out of the car, ran down the steps to the dock/water and did not make it up to the house until a few hours later! The kitchen and living room are open with a full view of the water. The bedrooms were very comfortable and there was a large family room with a bathroom and sliding doors so you were just steps away from the lake. We had an amazing meal in Portland at Fore Street restaurant and then took a walk around
The Old Port. This city has amazing food and great shopping, such a short ride from the lake but when you return to the cottage you feel like you were a million miles away! Highland lake was one of the best family vacations we have ever had and we can't wait to get back there. From the sunsets, swimming, campfires and relaxing it was something that we will always remember! Oh yeah, and the lobsters weren't bad either!

Vacationland

  • 5 of 5
After years at the Jersey Shore last summer we decided to pack up the family and head to "Vacationland". My wife and I and our three children absolutely loved our time on Highland Lake. Minutes from our cottage but a world away we conveniently visited Portland several times during our stay. The property itself super maintained was bright and pristine as the lake itself. We enjoyed fishing boating and hiking and when we returned home, we returned home. My family and I are excited to return. It is definitely a hidden gem.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We take pride in our pristine Highland Lake and we try to pay attention to the little details at the Belle Fay Cottage. From the owner, Teresa and the manager, Chantal.

Wonderful week on the Lake!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week at the Highland Lake cottage. The house was just as described and Chantal was very helpful arranging our week and always available if we had questions. The view is beautiful and the sunsets were spectacular.
The furnishings were very comfortable and perfect for curling up with a book.
The lake was great for swimming and my five year old is now hooked on fishing after catching lots of fish!

We were very close to Freeport, Portland, Scarborough Downs and Sebago Lake. The kids enjoyed the go-carts, zip lines and sky swing at the local fun spot and LL Bean and lobster boats in Freeport. Pineland Farms in New Gloucester was a beautiful farm and farmer's market/deli. The milk and cheese were fantastic.

A very relaxing and memorable vacation!
