"We just returned from a week long vacation at this wonderful house. Its down a quiet private road and there are views of the Sebago Basin from almost every room! The basin water was warmer, calmer and even more peaceful than being on the big lake. The house has 2 sets of stairs to walk into sandy shallow water to easily enjoy the lake which was perfect for the kids (age 1, 2.5 and 5). We rented a boat for one day and were able to use the boat mooring to enjoy the lake to its fullest. The house was very clean and stocked with plenty of linens and kitchen utensils. We enjoyed a big family dinner on the dining room table on the lower level that allowed us to watch the sun start to set over our meal. It was nice to fall asleep to the lapping of the water on the shore, or hear the loons crying overnight. Sebago Lake State Park was around 20 min or so from the house and was beautiful to experience for a few hours. Seacoast Aventure Park was perfect for the kids (go-karts, mini golf), literally only 5 minutes down the road. We also highly recommend trying 'Bomb Diggity Cafe' for delicious breakfasts, lunches or pastries - we went here at least 3 times during our trip!
The owner was responsive and very easy to work with. We hope to rent this house again in the future."

"We stayed here for a week in August with our entire family of 6, including a 1 year old. The cottage is in beautiful shape; it actually looks new. Each entryway is tiled, there is an outdoor shower and a nice lawn area. And as someone noted, it is about a mile from Route 302 but we never heard any traffic noise at all. It is right on the community beach (which was very quiet while we were there). We had a wonderful time using the 2 kayaks (there is also a rowboat and canoe), and the Basin area is off the main lake and less wavy, which is perfect for children. The beach is shallow and sandy.
It is hard to find a house with "adult bedrooms", and the 3rd bedroom here does have bunk beds but that worked alright for us. 3 bathrooms and a washer/dryer also were a bonus.
The only small complaint we had was that the AC units in the main and upper floors were very small. It was a hot week and we had to run them constantly in order to keep the rooms cool. We would have loved to turn them off during the day, open the windows, and then turn them back on in the evening before bed, but that would not have worked. The lower walk out basement room did not have AC (there was a fan), and started to smell a bit damp by the end of the week. Another window unit here would solve this issue easily. We had a couple of very small issues during the week that were promptly dealt with.
All in all, we loved the cottage, the neighborhood, and the lake. We would definitely consider returning."

"We have holidayed on 5 different NE lakes and Sebago is by far the best. Portland is 40 minutes away, with great restaurants and museums. Sebago is a big beautiful lake and Whittemore Cove is the best protected swimming, sailing, and boating cove on the lake. The property has a wonderful lawn leading down to a sand beach and large seating area on the dock. The dock is big enough for a runabout and there is a safe mooring. The kids loved jumping from the large rock at the entrance to the cove.
The house is well laid out for parents and kids with separate lounge areas and a great deck off the well appointed kitchen.
We can recommend Seacoast Adventure park for a great high wire and zip line afternoon for all ages.
We will be back again next year. Thanks Jim."
