Older children and adults can swim or kayak (four kayaks are provided) in the afternoon sun. Read a good book in the shade or take a nap on the sunny beach.

Nice little house
Nice little house
This is a lovely little house steps away from a small, private beach. House was clean and functional and our family of four had a really nice time. It had everything we needed and the kids loved the beach. The only thing to be aware of is that there is a spiral staircase. Our 1 1/2 year old toddler loved this. Once we had blocked the entrance to the stairs with chair, he started climbing up the outside....

Absolutely perfect cabin and location for kids. The cabin is very clean and has enough beds for everyone! The sandy beach with gentle walk in is also perfect...there is even shade for those who prefer to take a break from the sun ~ a real plus for the little ones. The owner provides a portable firepit for the beach...which is absolutely divine in the evening. A GREAT week...hope to visit again and again and again. Thank you ~

From the minute we set foot into the house we were thrilled and impressed. Paula left some beautiful fresh flowers on the table and a personalized note to give it a "homey feel". We thoroughly enjoyed everything about this place! The place was clean, had a fully stocked kitchen , an amazing view, and lots of sand toys, chairs and kayaks( 2 large and 2 smaller ones). We all enjoyed taking the kayaks out around the basin, and learning to kayak was a highlight for our kids. The beach is so close (just a short walk across a narrow beach road), the water was beautiful and the sunsets were breathtaking! Our children loved the loft...it was a perfect space for them. They were also thrilled with the smores kit. We loved the fire pit at the beach as we watched the sunset, toasting marshmallows. The deck is large, with extra tables and chairs to set up for some wonderful cookouts. We spent so much time swimming, boating, laughing and forming amazing family memories. The stores and restraunts are minutes away and Portland is only about 30 minutes from the house. This was one of our most relaxing, favorite family vacations we have ever had and we can not wait to come back next year!! We have already recommended it to several friends and family members. Thank you Paula!

Super Relaxing and Convenient

What a great little house in a great little neighborhood. So easy for the kids to walk across the street to the lake and play in the sand. Tongs of beach toys, kayaks, and chairs. Very comfortable and we would love to do it again.

Our group has been camping for 10 years together and decided to take an easier route. We found this delightful cottage on- line but never expected it to be as wonderful as it was. The cottage was clean, equipped with everything you could possibly want or need, and Paula, the owner, was so wonderful to work with. We enjoyed the kayaks and especially the sunsets. The "association beach" was much closer than we had expected and we spent many hours enjoying Sebago's clean clear water. We have already booked our two weeks for next summer!

My family stayed here back in 2009 (sorry to take so long to review, Paula!) and loved it. The location is fantastic. It feels like a lake cottage out in the boonies, but literally half a mile away there are grocery stores, restaurants, and general civilization. As other reviewers have pointed out, the pictures really don't convey just how close the beach is. It is right across the road, maybe 50 feet away, which is really convenient, and makes launching kayaks easy. There are a couple of very small islands a short kayak trip away, which my younger kids enjoyed paddling to and "exploring". The cottage slept the five of us very comfortably, and the kids enjoyed the loft too. We only stayed three days, and the owner was very accommodating with that. We haven't been back up to Maine in the last couple years, but when we head back that way, I'll be scheduling around the availability of this cottage. Would definitely recommend to others.

This was actually our second year staying at the cottage. We had such a wonderful family vacation in July 2010 that we decided to come back again this year!! The cottage is just as it is pictured in the photos and you can not beat the views, the sunsets are ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! We used all of the amenities (provided by Paula and her family) from beach toys and chairs to kayaks and life vests. The 'welcoming smore kit' was a huge hit with our kids, as soon as we arrived they went looking for it!!! You can not beat the location, the house is truly 10 steps from the beach and when you have children, that is an absolute blessing! We have such wonderful memories and photos of both vacations at this cottage, I'm sure we will be back!!!

My husband and three children had a wonderful, relaxing week in this cozy camp. The views from dawn to dusk were stunning. The beach and water were perfect. We enjoyed many rides around the basin in the kayaks. The house was the perfect size for us and the kids loved the loft. It was well stocked with games and outdoor items we used every day like chairs, life vests, sand toys. We had some extended family in the area and were able to host them for barbeques on the deck as it was spacious enough for a big crowd. The fire pit was a big hit with our kids too and we enjoyed one almost every night. We were there over the 4th of July and watched fireworks from the beach. It was close enough to town that we walked several times. I can't say enough good things about it. It was an amazing vacation and we hope to be back.

My family and I had a wonderful week last July. Loved the cottage and the owner Paula is kind,curtious and a great person to rent from. We will come back again and again. Having use of the kayaks to explore the lake was amazing and being able to sit on the beach with the firepit was wonderful. I would recommend this to everyone looking for a nice relaxing vacation.

My boyfriend and i had the pleasure of spending an extended 10 day 4th of July holiday at this beautiful lakefront property. We were able to enjoy 5 glorious days alone before 7 of our friends joined us for the long holiday weekend. It was simply AMAZING! The owner was more than accomodating with regard to occupancy (as we had a last minute guest arrival) and she provided us with everything we needed to know about the surrounding areas and activities. If you're into antiques like i am, there's a charming little town called Cornish on the opposite side of the lake that has at least 7 shops. The images on this page don't do the property justice, you're literally steps from the private beach! The sunsets are simply BREATHTAKING. I highly recommend kayaking while the sun sets...if you're lucky, you just might spot a turtle gliding along side (definately a highlight for me!). It truly is a special place to unwind with friends and family. We look forward to returning next year!
