The town of Standish anchors the southern end of Sebago Lake and also encompasses two smaller bodies of water, Watchic Lake and Bonny Eagle Pond. If you can imagine the bottom third of Sebago Lake sitting in a coffee cup with the cup coming up both the east and west shores that would approximate the Standish boundaries. The west side is the quieter side and the east side is closer to North Windham and Portland.
Standish has a population of over 9,000 and is the home to St. Joseph's College. It also has two public libraries, a public boat launch on Sebago Lake and a public beach on Watchic Lake provided by the local Kiwanis. It's just a half hour to Portland and the turnpike - a very desireable geographic location.
