Property description

Swim in Sebago Lake, one of the cleanest lakes in the US. This property has been owned and used as a private vacation home for 50+ years by the same family. This is not hotel or company managed vacation space.

Cozy, clean, NON SMOKING, surrounded by Sebago Lake State Park. 1 of 7 cottages sharing a private beach, easy 1 minute walk along the road between homes in front of our cottage. Entry is gradual, water level is high in early-mid summer. Water shoes are helpful, footing is a mixture of small rocks and sand. Walk 5 minutes to a large, long, sandy State Park beach with picnic facilities, snack bar, bathrooms, volleyball and playgrounds. Trails run throughout the Park and link the beaches. A trail runs right behind our cottage. Our State Park Season Pass is provided.

Horseshoe pit, screened porch and decks, charcoal barbeque and wood firepit. A great vacation spot for a family with young children, offering a bit of safety in distance from water. There's space; you won't feel bothered by neighbors.

Drive 5 minutes to Point Sebago Golf Course; 5 minutes to Naples. Park on the causeway and walk in any direction to find things to do. Portland is 30 minutes away. Children's Museum, Art Museum, Old Port - great restaurants, unique shops, tours and cruises. North Conway, NH, heart of the White Mountains, tax free outlet shopping is 50 minutes away.

Walking, swimming, kayaking, evenings by the fire. Lots of DVDs, board games and a foosball table. Bring your mountain bike to ride the Park trails.

Sorry, NO mooring or dock for a boat. The State Park boat launch has overnight parking and is 1/2 mile away. Additional fees to State of Maine may apply for overnight boat storage.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1963

About the owner: Pam and Scott, second generation owners, live in western Massachusetts. We can't spend as much time as we'd like at the lake.

Why the Owner Chose Casco:
Pam's non-swimmer parents preferred the safety of a little distance from the water. We love the woods, wildlife and water.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sebago is a large, very clean lake. We kayak on it and the rivers that feed it. Great beach and trail walks through the State Park.
