About the Property

3 bedrooms+, 2 baths lakefront home sleeps 8

Built in 2005 on peaceful Little Duck Pond in Windham, Maine, this hidden gem is 10 miles from Portland yet is secluded on a 44-acre spring-fed pond. The property is over an acre with 262 feet of waterfront. A private dirt road leads to a small community of summer homes. 

Our all-season home, just steps away from the water, has a deck, screen porch, an outdoor dining table and gas grill. The waterfront has a dock, a sandy bottom entry for wading or swimming and a separate boat area with 3 kayaks, a canoe and pedal boat. If a game of horseshoes is your pleasure, we have that, too.

The full-width deck, well-equipped kitchen, dining area, living room with fireplace, full bath, master king bedroom and screen porch are on the first floor. 

Twin-bedded and queen bedrooms, bath with stall shower, washer & dryer, and family room with a wet bar/mini-fridge/microwave, HDTV and queen pull-out couch are on the ground floor. Sheets, bath towels, beach towels and kitchen towels are included. You are also welcome to bring your own.

 Our expectation is that you will enjoy our getaway and leave it as you found it. Please send us an email that includes your name and telephone number and we will get back to you. Thank you.

Car: Necessary

When at the lake house you feel secluded and in the woods, yet Portland and all it has to offer (great restaurants, art museum, ferry trips, whale-watching, shopping) is less than 30 minutes away. There is a fun center with mini-golf and zip-lining 15 mins from the house. The beaches, light houses, and state parks of the Maine coast are a short drive as well.

Year Purchased: 2014

Why Windham, ME, USA:
We have vacationed in Maine for most of the last 25 years. We rented this house in the summer of 2013 and fell in love with it! The setting on the lake, the peace and quiet, yet so close to Portland and the coast are a hard-to-beat combination. And we fell in love with the house itself. We have renovated a lot of properties and recognized the great workmanship and quality of materials used in this house.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The wall of windows in the living room/dining room area just brings the lake inside. On a visit in October it was breathtaking! Being so close to the water allows such easy access to the house and dock. If you forget something, it's no big deal to go back and get it. And the mini-refrigerator on the lower level is such an added bonus. When we are there we keep it full of water bottles--no need to traipse through the whole house to refill. It's an easy in and out from the dock. As past renters, we have tried to think of the "little things" that make a rental special and convenient. For that reason, we provide sheets and towels, basic bathroom products (shampoo, conditioner, soap, tissues, etc.), kitchen basics (salt, pepper, mustard, ketchup, flour, napkins, paper towels, dish soap), laundry detergent, etc.
