  • Best Cottage we have rented in 30 years

    "Nancy and I have been coming to Maine for over 30 years, renting cottages on several of the beautiful lakes in the Sebago area. This is our first stay at this property. Without exaggeration, this cottage is the best we have ever rented, exceeding all of our expectations. When we arrived we found a "welcome gift" on the kitchen counter and a blueberry pie and ice cream in the fridge for us, a very pleasant surprise. That thoughtful touch was reflected throughout this well cared for and maintained cottage. It is immaculate, well-appointed and furnished and has a magnificent beach and view of Lake Sebago. The appliances are all modern and the Internet service is excellent. This cottage is about a ten-minute ride to Windham, "the big city", for shopping, restaurants and services, all very convenient. We are both morning walkers and this is located off the main road, secluded and perfect for walking. We highly recommend this property!"

  • Perfect Vacation

    "Our family of four (parents plus two young daughters) just returned from this property a couple of weeks ago and we give it eight thumbs up! Actually twelve thumbs up as we had two visitors while we were up there. We couldn’t have had a more perfect vacation. The property came just as advertised. We’ve rented properties all over Lake Sebago and nearby lakes the last five years and before that lakes in NH and VT. This is definitely one of the top rental properties in terms of the physical aspects – sandy beach on a clear, fresh-water lake, child/toddler-friendly landscaping, a clean and well-equipped house (bedding and towels must be supplied by guests) large enough to accommodate our family and visiting friends and relatives. But what really makes this place special is the people (and dog!). The owners, George and Bobbi, live next door and they were the most attentive and generous “landlords” we’ve ever had the pleasure to deal with (from the moment we contacted them via this website to the time we got our deposit check back). Just as a small example, at one point my wife needed a sieve for cooking as our kitchen, which was otherwise well equipped, did not have one. She asked George if they had one to borrow. George came by next day with one. He never even mentioned it, but it was clearly bought new just for us. He could have just said he didn’t have one and that would have been the end of it, but he went out of his way to get it for us. We also very much enjoyed his grown up children and their children. Sharing the beach may be a put off for some, but the property and certainly the lake are large enough to accommodate all. In fact, our seven year old got along fabulously with one of the grandchildren. On this vacation we never heard the oft complaint from past years -- “Dad, there’s nothing to do!” (other than swimming, building sand castles, going on canoe rides, catching critters and fish, roasting marshmellows, etc., etc. – all of which we did). Having a friendly golden retriever also was a huge hit with our children. We will definitely return."

  • Superb Vacation House, Enjoyed with Lifelong Friends in Picturesque Mountain Setting

    "I stayed in early May with eight other grown adult men (mostly lifelong friends) to celebrate my best friend's upcoming wedding. We aren't your typical "bachelor party animals" so we wanted to rent a nice house with many amenities and a close proximity to hiking locations. The Bingham House, right off of Sunday River and overlooking a pristine golf course and vast, picturesque mountain landscape, had it all. Besides grocery trips to the very closeby town center, a couple hiking trips and some bike rides, we actually found ourselves staying at the house the majority of the weekend! We thoroughly enjoyed the pool table, the hot tub, the firepit, the two gas grills (although one was a little finnicky), the expansive kitchen (which provided the chefs of our group ample space and all the necessary cooking items, utensils, dishes and ingredients), the coffeemaker and coffee, the big fridge to hold all of our food and ale, the Pac Man in the game room, the Netflix, and the poker table! Like I said, it wasn't missing much! The only trouble we ran into was the Wifi, but Gretchen answered my text within 20 minutes and helped us fix the issue. She was accomodating and helpful from the start of the rental process, and made herself very available the entirety of our stay. We walked down to the pool but it was a bit too cold out even though we hit 80 degrees the day we left. We were just so delighted at the unlimited options we had at our fingertips at the wonderfully-kept Bingham House. We will surely be back."

  • Our Happy Place

    "We've rented on Thompson Lake for nearly a decade. This was our first summer in this house, and we feel like we've finally found our summer home. We look forward to returning for many years to come. We found the house was in pristine condition when we arrived. The owner's personal commitment to the home is evident in large and small ways, from the well built tasteful home, to the providing of great sheets, towels, beach towels and PFD's. The master-bedroom suite including bedroom, bathroom, two closets and direct access by way of a sliding door to the screened in porch is phenomenal. The upstairs jack and jill bedrooms and bathroom are spacious and comfortable. The kitchen/great room area is large and accommodating with every amenity a person may need down to the cozy fleece blanket to cover you while you nap on the couch. The kitchen and grill are terrific. We ate in more this vacation than we ever have before -- bringing in steamed clams and lobsters from the Naples Lobster Pound on Route 302 in nearby Naples, taking advantage of the grill, and even baking homemade blueberry and raspberry pies with just-picked-by-us berries from Goss Berry Farm in nearby Mechanic Falls. The home is well suited for a couple looking for a relaxing blissful week on Thompson Lake to get away from it all, and equally well suited for hosting a family looking for Maine-lake fun and adventure. Thompson Lake is a jewel, and the property's location is ideal for swimming, sailing, kayaking/canoeing, motor boating or just sitting on the dock watching the loons go by -- and we did it all! Go see Guy at Thompson Lake Marina to rent a speed boat for tubing and water skiing or to rent a pontoon boat for a more relaxing tour of the lake. Call Mike and Mo at Sebago Sailing to rent a Sunfish sailboat for your stay. Mike will bring the Sunfish to the property and there is a mooring for the sailboat right by the swim float. Use the property's kayaks and canoe. Or just float in the lake. The owners are a pleasure to deal with -- responsive, caring and considerate, and interested in you enjoying their home and having a great vacation. We look forward to returning in 2015, 2016, 2017 ..."
