"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."

"We rented Rocky Shore Retreat for one week in July for four adults and two kids. It's a very special spot. Having a pier, dock, private beach, mooring, and floating trampoline dock (brand new) made this the perfect place to really experience the lake. We took full advantage of the kayak, canoe, and windsurfer, and rented power boats from the marina down the street. The deep-water dock made tying up stress-free. A large oak tree in front adds to the beautiful setting, as well as the outdoor fireplace and screened-in porch. There's also a basketball hoop and paved driveway in front, which was an added bonus. The street is extremely quiet and safe.
The house itself is spacious and the kitchen well-equipped. It definitely has a "camp" feel to it. If you're looking for a modern house with brand-new appliances and matching silverware, then this isn't the place for you. If you're looking for a charming, fun, family lake cottage, then you won't be able to find a better setting. We would definitely go back!"

"I found this little gem on VRBO and couldn't have been much happier about it. I'm the Head Coach for a performance Ski team and we had an event in Sunday River (30min away) and as this was a pretty important event seclusion and staying away from outside distractions is paramount. The morning after our arrival night I went for a walk out on to Papoose pond and noticed some iced over Ice fishing holes. After some time we found a local to Auger in a few holes for us and I was able to introduce my athletes to Ice Fishing right out the back door. we sat by the fire every night and the athletes were able to relax and enjoy themselves. The house was exceptionally clean upon out arrival and well stocked with fire wood. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for some peace and quiet in a beautiful setting!"

"My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our week at this property. The house has been completely renovated and the grounds are immaculate. The porch is a wonderful spot for eating meals and relaxing after a day in the sun or on the water. There is a nice small sandy beach for those not inclined to dive off the dock. The house is located behind a set of small islands and thus sheltered from the wind and waves of the big open lake. This makes it very conducive to water-skiing, tubing, paddleboarding, kayaking, and swimming due to the calmer water. On days when it was windy on the big part of the lake, it was most enjoyable in this cove."
