"My wife and I have enjoyed several stays at this log home on Crescent Lake. On two occasions, we’ve invited friends from Europe to join us. And a few years ago we had a handful of our oldest friends meet there for a 30 year college reunion. What keeps us so enthusiastic about coming back and about sharing this place with our friends is the fact that it doesn’t feel like a “rental”. As soon as we arrive, the house feels like a home, and everybody we’ve been there with feels equally comfortable as soon as they walk in the door.
Since I really enjoy being outdoors, I’m never at a loss for things to do in Raymond. Crescent lake is the perfect size for casual trips in either of the two canoes that have always been down by the dock. Not everybody has been up for a climb to the summit of Rattlesnake Mountain. But I’ve tried to make it a daily routine and gotten some magnificent photos from its overlooks that face at least four of the region’s lakes. Everybody I’ve been there with has especially enjoyed gathering on the screened-in porch for meals and for conversation. The younger kids have spent hours searching for minerals in the crushed granite drive that leads down to the house. And they just loved the nearby Maine Wildlife Park. My wife’s absolute favorite memory is the sound of the loons, especially at night. I’m not much of a TV enthusiast, myself. But everybody else was impressed by the cable service that seemed to offer just about every channel that they could ask for. Day or night, I personally prefer watching nature unfold at the end of the exceptionally spacious dock.
This year, we arrived in the off-season and were delighted to be there for the onset of autumn color. At times, we felt like we were the only people on the entire lake and the tranquility was an added bonus to our stay. We brought our own kayaks this time, and after a little trial and error managed to navigate all the way from the log home into Sebago Lake! It’s an all-day trip, and I wouldn’t recommend it to the casual paddler. But for any serious kayaker or canoeist who doesn’t mind a couple of short portages, it’s an exceptional run!
Thanks for another memorable vacation. And we’ll look forward to coming back next year!"

Great destination, Great accomodations, Great trip
"Point Sebago was everything we hoped for and more in a family vacation for myself, wife, and 8 and 5 year old. Very fun, safe, and family oriented. The accomodations on Purple Road were more than adequate for our needs and ended up being a great spot that was easy walking distance to all points at the resort yet tucked away and very quiet. The rental was very clean and had everything we needed to make a great vacation and we are already looking into our 2015 schedules to see when we can return for next year's vacation."

"We just returned home from this perfect cottage. All we can say is WOW! This well-equipped home had anything and everything we could possibly want. From kayaks to clean linens and slipcovers to parchment paper in the kitchen drawer! Even found
a few night lights to put around so we wouldn't trip over anything in the dark! Binoculars to watch the loon and her babies swimming on the lake were hanging there for our use. Patty and Eric provide everything! We have 3 pre-teen/teen children and they were totally entertained with swimming, kayaking around, playing board games and taking pictures of the beautiful scenery. We are so glad we found you....it was a little piece of heaven :-). Thank you!!"

"Our visit to Maine in September was a special treat for us Southerners. Our stay at this charming lake home was the best decision ever. Even our teenagers spent hours playing on the rocks, swimming, enjoying the beautiful lake view. The house is super comfortable with room for privacy, as well as lots of "together" time. Every night was family game night, with the board games thoughtfully provided by the homeowner. We were easily able to drive to nearby towns and attractions from our "home base." It was a perfect New England getaway!"
