About this home

Welcome to “Hoot Mon” Lake House! Hoot Mon Lake House is located in North Windham, Maine, an easy 30 minute drive from Portland International Jetport (PWM) and about 2 hours and 15 minutes north of Boston. Four generations of our family have spent countless summer days lounging on the beach, playing in the water and enjoying the incredible sunsets here on Sebago Basin. The Basin is a smaller outlet of Sebago Lake (connected to the larger lake by a boat-friendly passage under a bridge.) The lake is dotted with islands at the south end and home to many loons and painted turtles. Our lake house is at the end of a small lane and about ten steps from the beach. Our road is a dead end with other camps on it and is therefore a quiet and neighborly little community.

Hoot Mon has three floors and two full bathrooms. There are two private bedrooms. The upstairs bedroom has a queen bed and an in-suite full bathroom with a stand up shower. The downstairs bedroom has a double bed and access to the second full bathroom (also with a stand up shower) through a large walk in closet. There is also a queen-sized pull-out couch upstairs. Both bedrooms have closets and dressers for your use.

The kitchen is part of an open floor plan and flows into the dining/living space with tons of windows and a panoramic view of the lake. The view is spectacular! The basement is a perfect place to hang in the evening, play a game, watch a movie, do a puzzle and relax! “Charlie’s pub” (named for our grandfather who built the house) is the main attraction down in the basement. There is also a utility room in the back with a washer/drier you are welcome to use.

Outside, the private neighborhood beach is just a few steps away. We have beach chairs and towels for your use! We also have a picnic table and grill outside so your family can enjoy the beautiful Maine evenings. There is also a small porch on the front of the house, facing the lake, which is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing evening and watch the sunset.

North Windham has lots of shopping and eating options, including Hannaford’s, Shaw’s and Walmart, which are all one mile up the street. There are many family fun activities in town as well! On Saturdays there is a farmers market in town and we are happy to recommend spots for eating and ordering takeout - whether you are looking for something close by or are up for more of an adventure, we have lots of favorite spots!

Cleaning procedures are in accordance with CDCs guidelines (you’ll receive a welcome letter when you book which outlines our cleaning procedures.) We’re simplifying the dishes & supplies in the kitchen. There will still be enough dishes for cooking & eating, however this means that if you want to use spices & oils etc for cooking you’ll have to provide that for yourself.

*Please note: No pets are allowed on the property.

    Perfect few days

    The house was VERY clean and comfortable. It had everything we needed. Felt like I was right at home. Casey was very easy to communicate with. The lake was right out the back door as pictured. Very friendly community of homes. Can’t wait to go again!

    We loved our stay at Hoot Mon! We spent every day on the beach from our morning cup of coffee to dinner. Then back out to watch the sunset. You can’t beat how close the home is to the sandy beach... literally steps! It made it so easy to run back in if you forgot something, grab lunch, etc. We will surely be back next year!

    Hidden Gem

    We absolutely adore HootMon. It is a little hidden gem... steps to the beach, yet shopping is just around the corner. This was our second stay. Looking forward to returning next year and making it a family tradition.

    Terrific setting right on the beach

    Well equipped and very clean. More of a home than a camp with favs views up and down. Nice calm basin for easy canoe or kayak. Everyone loved the place.

    Great spot convenient to Portland

    Peaceful, lovely cottage right on the lake and bordering the community beach. The neighborhood is pretty densely populated, as you would expect from such a great location -- but the neighbors are friendly, respectful, and generally quiet. We loved the sunsets, the loons, the sandy beach. The cottage is well equipped - we had everything we needed, and Casey is great to work with. Easy to pop over to Portland if you want more excitement, and Windham has quite a few amenities itself.

    Great place to stay

    We loved the house and location. Everything was just as it appears online. The access to the water was great. All in all very peaceful and would definitely stay here again.
