Winthrop Lakes Region

Winthrop, a long-time vacation destination for many, can boast of 12 lakes and ponds within its township. But don’t be fooled into thinking that this is a sleepy little vacation community and nothing more!

This town has enjoyed success in attracting new business in recent years and has seen existing businesses expand. Winthrop has been undergoing a revitalization of its downtown. Developers have renovated a large old woolen mill complex to house medical care facilities as well as other commercial, retail and housing spaces.

Historically a strong manufacturing community, Winthrop has seen a growth in the distribution and high-tech fields. It is important to several surrounding towns as a place to work and shop.


The Winthrop Lakes Region also offers vacation fun with a number of lakeside cottages, campgrounds and lodging facilities plus a nice selection of restaurants. Visit this four-season community of gracious homes, churches and friendly people.

Population – 6,092
