Recent Frye Island property reviews

  • Frye Island Summer

    "A lovely house, well cared for. Lots of amenities. Great for kids, of all ages. As charming and livable as the island itself."

  • 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!"

  • Best. Vacation. Ever.

    "We have stayed in many VRBO properties over the past few years and this one is our favorite. It is the perfect size for our family of five...two bedrooms downstairs keep our young son close to us, yet the huge loft upstairs lets our teenagers have some privacy. Everything was neat and clean upon our arrival and Marie was happy to answer any questions. The house is ideally situated--close to beaches, the community center, tennis courts, and playground. The kitchen is well-equipped, the property well-maintained, and the large deck was great for playing board games and dining. For the first time ever, we got absolutely perfect weather during a family vacation--I've lived in Maine my entire life and have never seen a week so beautiful and sunny. We hate to go home!"

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.
