Enjoy a relaxing and fun-filled stay with family or friends. Young children can be entertained for hours on the sandy, association beach and in the shallow water. Older children and adults can swim or kayak (four kayaks are provided) in the afternoon sun. Read a good book in the shade or take a nap on the sunny beach.
Cook your dinner on the deck while you watch the gorgeous evening sunset over the water. Spend some time exploring the Portland/Windham area and all the beauty that Maine has to offer. Restaurants, ice cream parlors and shopping are only a mile or two away. Take a leisurely stroll to the store or a more rigorous hike through the woods. Your summer vacation will be a memorable one at this desirable beachfront property! Sorry--no mooring or dock available.
My family and I recently spent a week at the cottage and had a lovely time. The house is very cute, clean and steps away from the beach. Upon arrival I was pleasantly surprised at how close the house really is to the beach and having a two year old this was fantastic. It was so easy to go back and forth from cottage to beach. We spent most of our days relaxing on the beach and using the kayaks around the lake, which is another nice bonus of the house. I loved that the location was on the secluded and peaceful basin of the lake and is minutes from stores and restaurants as well. Overall we had a pleasant vacation and plan on returning, would definitely recommend!
Some colleagues and I were looking for a weekend getaway with the right combination of quiet getaway and access to activities. This place was a hit. A nice little home to stay in, very short walk to the beach to relax in the sun, a short drive to town with most things you need, and less then an hour to Portland or Freeport. Property manager was very friendly and helpful. We got what we were looking for and for a great price.
I recently had the pleasure of spending a week at this adorable house on the lake. I have a 5 year old son, so the convenience of having the beach just steps away was so great!
The beach is private and very relaxing. We spend many days just playing on the beach and in the water enjoying every minute. At night we would have a fire in the firepit and roast marshmallows.
For the times when we needed to spend a day away from the beach, there was so much to do just minutes away. We would shop, go to the movies, etc.
The house was well stocked with cooking utensils, cleaning supplies, beach chairs, beach toys not to mention the 4 kayaks which we loved.
Paula was very accommodating and made sure our every need was met. Even after we left, I received a package in the mail the following week from Paula containing my son's water shoes which we had mistakenly left behind.
I would highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a fun, relaxing lakeside getaway.
Thumbs up all around!!!
This is a lovely little house steps away from a small, private beach. House was clean and functional and our family of four had a really nice time. It had everything we needed and the kids loved the beach.
The only thing to be aware of is that there is a spiral staircase. Our 1 1/2 year old toddler loved this. Once we had blocked the entrance to the stairs with chair, he started climbing up the outside....
Absolutely perfect cabin and location for kids. The cabin is very clean and has enough beds for everyone! The sandy beach with gentle walk in is also perfect...there is even shade for those who prefer to take a break from the sun ~ a real plus for the little ones. The owner provides a portable firepit for the beach...which is absolutely divine in the evening. A GREAT week...hope to visit again and again and again. Thank you ~
From the minute we set foot into the house we were thrilled and impressed. Paula left some beautiful fresh flowers on the table and a personalized note to give it a "homey feel". We thoroughly enjoyed everything about this place! The place was clean, had a fully stocked kitchen , an amazing view, and lots of sand toys, chairs and kayaks( 2 large and 2 smaller ones). We all enjoyed taking the kayaks out around the basin, and learning to kayak was a highlight for our kids. The beach is so close (just a short walk across a narrow beach road), the water was beautiful and the sunsets were breathtaking! Our children loved the loft...it was a perfect space for them. They were also thrilled with the smores kit. We loved the fire pit at the beach as we watched the sunset, toasting marshmallows. The deck is large, with extra tables and chairs to set up for some wonderful cookouts. We spent so much time swimming, boating, laughing and forming amazing family memories. The stores and restraunts are minutes away and Portland is only about 30 minutes from the house. This was one of our most relaxing, favorite family vacations we have ever had and we can not wait to come back next year!! We have already recommended it to several friends and family members. Thank you Paula!
