Just 12 miles northwest of Portland, ME, Windham is an active family destination offering year-round fun where you can enjoy nearby swimming and beaches during the summer, followed by tubing and snowboarding in the winter. Woo-hoo! With it’s cool history and close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, it’s no wonder Windham vacation rentals tend to book up early.

We'll keep you running around from dawn until dusk

Windham is a cool town where you can shop for antiques or take a cooking class in the morning, and then try your hand at fly fishing along the Pleasant River in the afternoon. You can tackle the ropes course, go tubing and splash in the water park at Seacoast Adventure, or fly 100-feet high above the ground on the Sky Swing. And in winter, Seacoast Snow Park offers snowboard lessons and a 5-acre park for practicing. Every June, Windham Summerfest hosts a parade, a car show, and entertainment, along with seafood vendors and fireworks.

Bygones, a brewery, and beaches with cross-country skiing?

Where to start? History buffs are sure to love 19th-century treasures including Jillson House Museum, Goold House, and a replica of an original covered bridge. Energize yourself with Whoopie Pies before heading off to Crescent Beach State Park in nearby Cape Elizabeth along the Atlantic Ocean, where you can soak up the rays on the beach, or go off-season hiking and cross-country skiing. Yes that's right - you can cross-country ski by the beach. With ocean views. And you're just down the road from Allagash Brewery Company and the Portland Museum of Art.

4 seasons & 4 ways to play outdoors year-round

Or, then again, it may be the budding flowers in the spring, or maybe it's the colorful autumn foliage. Whatever, never mind. Any time of year is a great time to visit Windham. But typically, you'll still find lower prices when booking Windham vacation rentals in the off season. Whenever that is.
