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 our home on the pond. Just steps away from the water, it 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. The full-width deck, well-equipped kitchen, dining area, living room with fireplace, full bath, master king bedroom and screen porch are on the upper level. 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 lower level. Sheets, bath towels, beach towels and kitchen towels are included. You are also welcome to bring your own.

Why Janet Weinstein chose Windham
We have vacationed in Maine for most of the last 30 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.
What makes this House unique
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.

Quiet, peaceful, beautiful.....
My wife and I, along with our 21 year old daughter, rented this lakeside cottage for 3 nights starting Oct. 13. It was perfect for our needs. The dates corresponded with the fall colors along the lake and we spent much time just gazing at the beauty. Fully stocked and functional kitchen, very clean and comfortable bedroom facilities. Pam, the property manager, was great to work with and communication was a breeze. The fall weather was chilly but we still found sunny parts of a couple of days to utilize the furnished kayaks. Paddling along the shore with full fall splendor confirmed our decision to visit Maine in October. Portland was a short and very convenient drive away and yet it seemed we were isolated in Maine's varied timber. Would not hesitate to book again on a return trip.
The pictures do not begin to do this place justice. My family of seven stayed here for a long weekend to attend a wedding, and it was amazing. Hopefully we can come back sometime when it's a bit warmer and we can enjoy the water more.
Thank you! We’re happy it worked out well for you and your family. We’d love to have you stay again!
The house fit our needs for two families of four. The weather was great and we made use of the boats and life jackets as we toured the lake.

The house was beautiful and had everything that we needed (and then some.) We especially enjoyed having canoe, kayaks and a peddle boat available to explore the pond. All in all a wonderful getaway that's within an easy drive to Portland and the Atlantic coast. We definitely recommend!
Thank you for your kind review. We are happy you were able to enjoy the lake and the house.

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. LL Bean and the Freeport outlets are an easy drive.
