Wonderful family retreat with 250 feet of waterfront. Retaining wall with step down into sandy bottom. Gradual entry into lake; ideal for children. Cozy, rustic cottage on the shore of serene, Highland Lake. Leave your cares behind as you drive off the pavement and down the tree canopied cottage road. Highland Lake is a private (no campgrounds or public boat access), deep water, spring fed lake. The cottage is perfectly situated on 1 acre of land centered on the west side of the lake, facing east for picturesque sunrises. Sit on the screen porch or around the lakefront fire pit and listen to the loons serenade you. Located only 112 miles from downtown Boston, 11 miles from downtown Portland and 20 miles from Pine Point Beach. Location is convenient to area beaches, amusement and water parks, restaurants, theaters, and shopping. The cottage has four bedrooms and one bath. Amenities include: dock, kayaks, hammock for two, charcoal and gas grill, fire pit, horseshoe pits, picnic tables, screen porch, TV with DVD player.
As residents of New York, our parents purchased this camp in 1973 for our family to have a vacation destination. Now, 4 generations of our family have created lasting memories here! We all fell in love with Maine so much that our entire family moved to the Portland area. All of us have lived in Maine for about 40 years and we spend every summer and even winter months 'upta camp!' Now we would love to share our family retreat with others.

Lovely camp with very attentive hosts. You'll enjoy the little touches that make you feel so welcome.
We are a family of six and we had plenty of space. The bedrooms have lots of charm and everything is very neat and tidy.
The lake was warm and clean and the kids enjoyed swimming and fishing each day. We had plenty to do even on the one rainy day we experienced.
We look forward to visiting again.
Nice 3 bedrooms for adults, bunk bed room for kids, open concept for dining and living room. Lots of land for kids to play. Highland Lake very nice. Not crowed with boats and jet skies. Watched eagles and Loon families. Very, clean comfortable and quite. Highly recommend for families.
My family had a great time here. If you're looking for luxury of any kind, go elsewhere. This is simply an old cabin, but it's got charm, a great screen porch, a large, treed-in, private property, and great lake access with good swimming and kayaking/canoeing. It's maybe slightly overpriced given the rudimentary nature of the accommodations, but we would go back.
Highland Lake is located 10 miles from downtown Portland and 10 miles from North Windham and Sebago Lake area.
A renter's handbook is available at the cottage for our best recommendations.
