Recent Standish vacation rental reviews

The beauty of the scenery is undeniable.
Marshall D. | Oct 2022
I loved that it felt so remote yet was just minutes from anything we might need. Could not have asked for a better location on the property either: water view on two sides, and situated right by the water. The beds were very, very comfortable as well, remarkably so.
Anna A. | Oct 2022
Cute, comfy cabin on the lake. Good heating and good water pressure!

Where is Standish, Maine?

Officially incorporated in 1785, the town of Standish was named for Miles Standish, the military leader of the Plymouth Colony. Today, this community is bordered by the Saco River to the west and the southern shores of Sebago Lake to the east. Standish includes four distinct population centers - Standish Village, Steep Falls, Sebago Lake Village, and Whites Bridge. This charming and historic area is located just 18 miles northwest of Portland, 31 miles north of Kennebunkport, and 56 miles north of Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

Things to Do in Standish, Maine

With its lengthy shoreline on Sebago Lake, Standish attracts year-round visitors to explore the deep, clear waters of this beloved landmark. At nearly eight miles wide and 10 miles long, Maine's second-largest lake reaches depths of up to 316 feet and is a popular destination for anglers in search of lake and brook trout, largemouth and smallmouth bass, and white and yellow perch. Residents and visitors can park and launch their watercrafts with ease at the public boat launch at Sebago Lake Station Landing. 

Drive 21 miles north from Standish to reach Sebago Lake State Park, a 1,400-acre expanse that opened in 1938 as one of Maine's five original state parks. Spend warm summer days lounging on the sandy beaches, hiking through the beautiful woodlands, or swimming your way through a series of calm, clear inlets and coves.

A lovely beach on the shores of Watchic Lake is operated by the Kiwanis Club of Standish and is  the perfect place for a family picnic on a summer afternoon!
