This cozy, comfortable cottage is nestled on a quiet, winding, paved, dead-end road in a family friendly neighborhood. It sits on a huge, level, sandy, association beach that is perfect for kids, picnics, playing and swimming! It is within walking distance from the many amenities North Windham offers.

We stayed here for a week in August with our entire family of 6, including a 1 year old. The cottage is in beautiful shape; it actually looks new. Each entryway is tiled, there is an outdoor shower and a nice lawn area. And as someone noted, it is about a mile from Route 302 but we never heard any traffic noise at all. It is right on the community beach (which was very quiet while we were there). We had a wonderful time using the 2 kayaks (there is also a rowboat and canoe), and the Basin area is off the main lake and less wavy, which is perfect for children. The beach is shallow and sandy.
It is hard to find a house with "adult bedrooms", and the 3rd bedroom here does have bunk beds but that worked alright for us. 3 bathrooms and a washer/dryer also were a bonus.
The only small complaint we had was that the AC units in the main and upper floors were very small. It was a hot week and we had to run them constantly in order to keep the rooms cool. We would have loved to turn them off during the day, open the windows, and then turn them back on in the evening before bed, but that would not have worked. The lower walk out basement room did not have AC (there was a fan), and started to smell a bit damp by the end of the week. Another window unit here would solve this issue easily. We had a couple of very small issues during the week that were promptly dealt with.
All in all, we loved the cottage, the neighborhood, and the lake. We would definitely consider returning.
After a lot of searching and staying in some less than great rentals, I found this rental for my multi-generational immediate family. This house is convenient to town, Portland, and the highway, but feels set away from everything. Though houses are close-by, it feels like being part of a neighborhood in a nice way. This house is directly on a public beach, so we had the benefits of a large, kid friendly beach and kids for my only to play with. The beach was never crowded. The basin is great for kayaking, we brought our own. The house has the finishes of an nice year-round home, but in a beach location. For someone who wants the comforts of home while in a rental (cable, wifi, king beds, storage space, multiple bathrooms, plenty of space), this is the place. We booked for next summer before we even arrived back home.
This beautiful property is well kept and fully equipped to make your vacation very comfortable. With two king bedroom on the 2nd and 3rd floor and a "bunk" room on the 1st floor - there is plenty of space for two families! The beach is right outside the door and the lake water is very clean. Stores are right around the corner but you wouldn't know it from this quiet dead-end street. We hope to be back next year!
We have been returning to this spot for several years now. This is the second summer in this new cottage. In our minds, the location is perfect, the owners very helpful and friendly. The new cottage has everything that one needs for a wonderful vacation and is very clean and tastefully decorated. We call this our little piece of heaven and look forward to more vacations here. Lots of good food and fun things to do in the area. We definitely recommend this property to anyone. There are lots of steps as the cottage is three levels. The cottage is right off the beach with no street to cross making it great for young children. We are a family with three generations and this place is perfect for us.
