Family-friendly lakefront house with 3 kitchens, private dock, - dogs welcome!

Your family and friends are going to love this four-bedroom Standish retreat for your next summertime Maine vacation! This dog-friendly home features a serene lakefront location complete with a private dock, plus kayaks and a canoe to help you explore your gorgeous natural surroundings. With three distinct living areas, three separate kitchens, and refined, yet comfortable furnishings, this 4,000-square-foot home offers you and your guests the perfect blend of togetherness and privacy. Spend your days in comfort in the airy central living space featuring lofty ceilings, plush seating, and windows that beautifully frame the lake. Kick up the gas fireplace on crisp fall evenings then pluck a book or a game off the shelf. Select a favorite DVD to enjoy with the large flatscreen cable TV. In the main kitchen alone, you'll find double ovens, a gas range, and a dishwasher, as well as casual bar seating and a handsome dining room table. At night, the four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms will accommodate as many as 10 guests. The elegant main suite offers two twin beds that push together to form a king, plus a private bathroom with a jet tub.

But it is the spectacular outdoor spaces - including two decks, three covered porches, and a small courtyard - that truly make this home special. Watch for loons, osprey, and eagles as you host a lobster bake with friends and family and end the evening with toasted S' mores around the firepit. Spend your days launching the canoe or one of the provided kayaks from the private dock, and let the kids splash in the shallow buoyed area. Relish in a home-cooked meal straight from the gas grill and plenty of outdoor space for your al-fresco meals.

What's nearby:
Nestled in a grove of trees, this home sits upon the scenic shores of Watchic Lake, a 448-acre expanse known for its large populations of bass, perch, and pickerel. Take a sunrise paddle in the provided canoe or kayaks, easily launched from the private dock. You'll be able to swim, fish, and launch boats just outside your door, and you'll be only two miles from the Field of Dreams Golf Driving Range, six miles south of Sebago Lake, and 20 miles from Portland International Jetport. In the wintertime, you'll find lake access for snowmobiles at the end of the road, and the Stone Mountain Arts Center hosts national music performances ranging from folk to opera, Celtic to classical. And in addition to restaurants like The Outpost Public House and grocery stores such as Hannaford Supermarket, both just a few miles away, you'll be just a short drive from Portland's thriving culinary scene, historic old port, and lovely shoreline on Casco Bay.

Just spent a long weekend with family at this house. What a beautiful view of sunrise with coffee on one of the decks or patio. Family had a great time on the kayaks and will remember this vacation forever. Highly recommended!

Same as above.

I would recommend this home on Watchic Lake over and over again. It’s comfortable, clean, and beautifully decorated. The main floor kitchen has EVERYTHING you may need to cook. There’s plenty of space for privacy. And the view of the lake is perfect.....sunrises are amazing. The neighborhood is peaceful and quiet. We had an issue with the thermostat and the owner and her son were there within the hour to take care of it. Very pleasant family! Don’t hesitate to vacation here.

Location was amazing as well as the views. Loved how it was private with no tourists around. House had good vibes.

This is our third year in a row coming here and we just can't get enough of this beautiful Lakefront Retreat!!!
It just keeps getting better every year. Already looking to book it for next year. This is the one vacation that my 2 sons and their Fiancés look forward to each summer to all get together and just have so much fun!!!

This is the perfect house for a trip with multiple families or generations. Easy 40 or so minute drive to Portland, but the lake is nice enough that it's worth spending several days not going anywhere. My only complaint would be that my allergies were really bad on the slightly musty lowest level, but I think that's probably to be expected on any house on the water. Take that into consideration when assigning rooms. Lots of stairs, but there is a lift from the mid level to the top floor great room. Overall a great trip.

The house was great, had everything we needed and was very comfortable.

This home was lovely. It served our special needs well! We had an elder with us who was unable to go up and downvstairs. The chair glide was a godsend. There was also a bathroom on the main level where the "gathering area" was located. That was a necessary feature for us.
Bob R. Oct 2017
The lake view from the decks and most of the rooms is great. The upper two levels of the home are neat, clean and well decorated. The lower level bathroom is dated. Overall a nice place to visit and relax.

We recently returned from our stay here, on Watchic Lake. We were so happy and content ! Depending on people's needs, I would surely recommend this home, especially for an extended stay. So many things are provided for you. The kitchen was a pleasure to cook in and we thought the whole home was comfortable. WE have absolutely no complaints and would love to come and stay again !! Thank you, to the Owners and Vacasa.

We celebrated our 40th anniversary here with our kids. The layout was perfect for time together as well as time to spend apart. The lake is a treasure. The kayaks and docks provide so much enjoyment. The decks were great including the grill--and the outside fire pit was so relaxing in the evening. The kitchen was well-appointed making it easy to prepare meals. Having a big grocery store nearby was awesome. We would return to this property in a heartbeat!
Laura C. Aug 2017
Such a great place! We had an amazing time and it's a perfect spot right on the lake! The water was amazing and we even woke up one day and used there kayaks which was so nice! Thank you for everything!
John K. Aug 2017
We Love coming here every year. We love the privacy that this spacious home offers and yet we can all be together on the main floor.We just Love that this home is right on the Lake!!!
Deborah C. Aug 2017
We had a three families reunuion with 6 adults and for kids. This house was terrific. The boats were a big hit, and we swam to the flag rock everyday. Smores at the firepit, lazy spaces to hangout, and a fabulous kitchen. We had a lovely time and would return readily. Thanks!

If you're looking to get away for an awesome week/weekend in Maine look no further. This place has 3, that's right 3 kitchens. 3 full bathrooms and one half. Tons of space in case the weather isn't good and ample outdoor space. It also comes with Paddle boards, Kayaks, a nice dock and a floating swimming platform. The owner is very nice and the house was in immaculate condition. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat. Book now!
Christopher C. Jun 2017
Area is secluded from "big city life" and exactly the place to go to unwind and forget about the rat race of life for a little while! The sunrises over the lake and the surrounding scenery were very pleasing.
Sarah S. Nov 2016
House is very comfortable for a family gathering. Living space allows gathering or alone time as needed.
Kim A. Aug 2016
Overall a beautiful vacation location. The lake is amazing. The price is a bit high but it was fun.
Calvin C. Aug 2016
Beautiful house. Will book again next year
Garry K. Jun 2016
I would recommend this beautiful vacation retreat to anyone visiting the State of Maine.
Jay P. Jun 2016
This house was amazing and perfect for us. We enjoyed our stay very much. The owners have it just right and it was greatly appreciated. If you have a family with different needs and a little space for everyone is appreciated, yet having a great common area as well, this is it. Waterfront is perfectly balanced with some lawn area and deck space to sit and watch the younger ones paddle or swim. Really great. We hope to return.
Leah J. May 2016
By far one of the most beautiful location I have ever stayed in. Every room has windows on to the water, the house was quiet, peaceful, and immaculate.
