  • Quiet house with incredible views of Sebago Basin

    "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."

  • Great little weekend getaway.

    "Some colleagues and I were looking for a weekend getaway with the right combination of quiet getaway and access to activities. This place was a hit. A nice little home to stay in, very short walk to the beach to relax in the sun, a short drive to town with most things you need, and less then an hour to Portland or Freeport. Property manager was very friendly and helpful. We got what we were looking for and for a great price."

  • Fantastic Family Rental

    "We just returned from a relaxing fun family vacation at this well equipped comfortable farmhouse. The owners were welcoming and have thought of everything you may need. The yard is spacious and perfect for playing outdoor games which we enjoyed every night followed by dinner on the patio and gathering later in the eves at the fire pit. The boat slip was great as my son brought his fishing boat and Bob met him at the road to direct him to the waterfront. The house was clean and all bedrooms were nice and cool with the air conditioners. The only room that needed cooling was the twin bed room so we just didn't use it for sleeping. The twin beds are not long enough for adults but would be fine for small children. Just a short walk to the beach. Very private and serene location. Best vacation in a long time!"

  • Lovely Cottage

    "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."
