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
Why Chantal chose Windham
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.
What makes this cottage unique
Rural, classic lakefront feel, yet just a few miles to all modern amenities, ocean experiences, and much entertainment.
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.
