Recent Sebago Lake reviews

  • Relaxing lakefront home

    "I recently had the pleasure of spending a week at this adorable house on the lake. I have a 5 year old son, so the convenience of having the beach just steps away was so great! The beach is private and very relaxing. We spend many days just playing on the beach and in the water enjoying every minute. At night we would have a fire in the firepit and roast marshmallows. For the times when we needed to spend a day away from the beach, there was so much to do just minutes away. We would shop, go to the movies, etc. The house was well stocked with cooking utensils, cleaning supplies, beach chairs, beach toys not to mention the 4 kayaks which we loved. Paula was very accommodating and made sure our every need was met. Even after we left, I received a package in the mail the following week from Paula containing my son's water shoes which we had mistakenly left behind. I would highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a fun, relaxing lakeside getaway. Thumbs up all around!!!"

  • Amazing house on amazing island!

    "Our 2 families spent one week in this house at the end of June. We had a great time! The house is very accommodating, not too small not too big, perfectly sized for our 2 families. We loved the high ceiling open space and the amazing view on the lake. The deck is also perfect. With 8 seats to watch the sunset, it's the cherry on the top of a day spent at one of the many nearby beaches. The island itself is also great with lots of possible activities (golf, tennis, etc.). With people saying hi to each other, going around in golf kart, it feels like being in a camping except everyone have houses on wooded land instead of tents! We highly recommend this house to anyone looking to have a relaxing and fun getaway!"

  • LIGHTHOUSE COTTAGE IS WONDERFUL

    "We saw the lighthouse cottage online, and thought it looked great. Our expectations were more than met. Renting on an island was very fun. We decided it was like being at a very friendly Camping type resort, but with great homes. This home had everything we could want. There were 5/6 adults at various times, and 2 small children, and we all had plenty of room. The kitchen is well stocked with anything needed, plus a huge hightop table and chairs that allowed many nights of late night game playing. The view is wonderful from the deck and the house. The owers were very nice and extremely helpful. They stopped by for a quick welcome hello and gave us many island tips. Frye Island is like a hidden treasure. The little restaurant- Fyre's Leap is a seriously delicious eat in/take out restaurant...we enjoyed anything we ordered there. The stairs at the house looked like a bit of a problem at first for our 2.5 year old granddaughter's safety- but a few well placed gates took care of that. There is something about an island that is so charming and fun, and this house added just the right amount of luxury to the fun. We would rent again in a minute when we decide on Maine."

  • Great House, Amazing Value

    "We just returned from Maine/Sebago Lake the other day and we had a fabulous experience staying at this house. It was perfect for our families (9 total; 5 kids and 4 adults). It was just enough room for everyone. The lake access was close and very easy to get to. The lake was cool, crisp and pure as can be. The kids loved jumping off the floating dock. We also saw some bald eagles - truly magical. The owner was the nicest, most accommodating landlord you could ask for, and so are the neighbors. The area is beautiful and all round, just a wonderful family vacation. We would definitely return, especially for the price. We looked and looked and this was by far the best deal."

Frye Island Travel Tips

Escape to Summer: Frye Island Vacation Rentals

Popular legend has it that Captain John Frye swam to the safety of the island now named after him while escaping from a tribe of Native Americans. The facts of the story may be a bit muddled by history, but the name has stuck and now, today, many people escape to Frye Island vacation rentals, leaving their daily lives behind in order to appreciate the beauty of nature and some rest and relaxation. Also, nowadays, people can take a ferry instead of swimming through Sebago Lake to get to Frye Island.

Recently, Sebago Lake lodging in general and Frye Island cottages in particular have become very popular among Maine vacationers. Despite the popularity, the island is only accessible from May to October. From November to April, ice can form on the lake, making it impassable by ferry. For this reason, Frye Island vacation rentals are only available in the late spring, summer, and early fall.

Bring the Whole Family, Even the Furry Ones

One of the best things about spending a vacation out in nature is being able to have your dog with you. Many families think of their dogs as actual members of the family, as much so as human members of the family. For this reason, taking man's best friend on vacation is a treat for both the dog and the whole family. Luckily, there are Sebago Lake lodging options that are pet-friendly. A number of Frye Island vacation rentals, including Frye Island cottages allow guests to bring their dogs.

Some Sebago Lake lodging options are even open to indoor pets such as cats, birds, and hamsters. This is great for families who will be spending many days or even weeks in Frye Island cottages or houses and don't want to have to pay for a pet sitter the whole time.
