Lakefront home on Watchic Lake!

The lake is a great getaway during any season. In the warmer months you can enjoy swimming, kayaking, or lounging on the 3 decks or the 3 season sun room. Gather around the spacious fire pit and catch up with family and friends at night. Fall brings beautiful foliage and scenic hikes nearby. Winter provides a great area for ice fishing, skating, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling. The cozy wood stove will keep you warm after a day of fall or winter activities.

The space

Your family and friends will love this lakefront Standish home, a dog-friendly retreat on the shores of Watchic Lake!

This 4 bedroom home is located directly on the lake. In the summer it is great for swimming, fishing, floating or just sitting by the fire pit and relaxing. In the fall and winter it makes for a great cozy getaway to relax and enjoy all that Maine has to offer.

The main level is an open concept living area combining the dining, kitchen, and living room. Heat is provided by an oil burning furnace, but there is a wood burning stove for added heat and ambiance on the main level. There are two large bedrooms on the second floor. The master bedroom has a private balcony. The other room contains a full and twin size bed. There are two small bedrooms in the basement and another cozy family room.

We have a selection of games and DVDs for rainy days or nights at home. Light a fire in the fire pit near the water and enjoy views of the lake!

Just twenty miles from Portland International Jetport. 35 minutes to Funtown/Splashtown and 40 minutes to Old Orchard Beach. North Conway NH and outlet shopping make for a nice midweek day trip.

Fall leaf peeping, the Fryeburg Fair, hiking and biking are all within a close proximity. Winter rentals provide access to ITS trails and bountiful ice fishing.

Rob's house was perfect for a fall trip to Maine. The outdoor area is perfect - right on the water with plenty of outdoor seating. Rob was super responsive and easy to talk to. I would highly recommend this house.

My husband and our pup had a great time at Rob's home. The setup was perfect, the house was relaxing and we loved the lake. Rob's communication was excellent, and checkin was seamless. We were able to enjoy a few board games on the deck, while sipping on margaritas. Our stay was perfect! Thanks Rob!

Great Lake with clear Maine water, secluded, awesome lakeside deck/boat house with fire pit nearby, little private dock and floating swimming dock anchored to lake bottom. However, I wouldn't recommend this house for more than 6-7ppl MAX because of the one bathroom. Also on rainy days we couldn't get out of each others way because it's "cozy". We had 9ppl and it was getting a little tense come day three Rob was awesome with communication and the house was clean. Can't say enough about him and his home. Be advised the neighbors are "social", laid back but fairly close. Rob mentions this in the description. But be prepared for some music playing at all reasonable hours and definitely most nights. We party so they were a welcomed addition to our week!

Great little place on a quaint lake. I already miss the sound of the loons! Distance to Freeport, Old Orchard Beach, and Portland not too bad. We even saw two moose out in a field while we were leaving Freeport from Route 295.

The house is beautiful, it was such a delight to be on the lake (and to have access to kayaks!). Our only problem was with the wifi, which wasn't working well enough to be usable during our stay.

Response from Rob:
Hi Leah, Thank you for the feedback about the wifi. We spoke with the cable company about it. Apparently there was an issue in the neighborhood last week. There was a lightning strike nearby that took out a piece of equipment. It should be working well now. I am glad you guys were able to enjoy the lake!

I grew up in a small town in Maine. I now live with my husband and our two cats (Jack and Diane) in Boston. A lot of our family and friends remain in Maine, so it made sense for us to purchase a vacation home that would provide us a place to stay and enjoy with them. We enjoy most outdoor activities. We love to travel and explore new places.

When we come to Maine we love to spend time in Portland. Portland is a great city with a lot of culture. We try to eat at new restaurants each time we go. Portland is a great city for foodies.

We also like to enjoy all that Maine has to offer. There is an abundance of things to do in nature. We love to go hiking and kayaking and experience the outdoors.

When we travel to other places, we like to meet new people and get to know the local culture. It is fun to find places that are off the beaten trail. Thats one thing that is great about AirBnB, you aren't always staying in the touristy locations. You get a chance to get out and see the area.

We enjoy being AirBnB hosts. We've met some really great people. We love being able to share our home and we enjoy reading the stories from guests that stay there.
