Why John Donahoe chose Raymond
When I saw the location of this cottage I saw magic. I put in an offer and as soon as we closed on the property I tore down the old shack and designed and built a new 'adirondac style' cottage in the same location. With a huge sandy beach and shallow entry in a quiet cove ... This is one sweet property!

“Slice of Maine paradise”
Amazing cabin hidden among the shoreline of Sebago Lake..perfect for families! Beautiful views from patio, fire pit and screened in back porch. Fully stock with everything... cooking stuff, canoe, private beach, plenty of space. We rented a boat locally and moored it a cabin which turned out perfectly. Very close to Frye Island ferry, we brought our bikes and rode them on island couple of times. Also, ate dinner on the island at there restaurant. Local supermarket was about 20 minutes away so come prepared for a few days! The value is definitely here for a big family or two small families. Enjoy peaceful Maine at its best here!
Summer in Maine!
Relaxing carefree vacation. Lots of wildlife, great views of fireworks, best screen porch in Maine!
Great Cabin, Great location
Great Cabin, Great Location. The owner John called and texted to make sure everything was going well. A very nice personal touch. I would recommend this vacation rental.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for your nice review.
Great vacation get away. Quiet beach for Kids!
Property was clean and efficiently set up. Porch was great for family dinner. Bunk house was used for family who liked a little privacy and could use internet for work. Deck over the water was a favorite hang out. Went to Maine Wildlife Park with kids, loved it! Would recommend this for those who want to get away with the conveniences such as groceries, restaurants, and sites!
Its a great spot. We are happy you enjoyed your stay. Thanks.
It is a beautiful setting
The location of the cabin is in a beautiful setting as described. The cabin is in a calm and quiet cove and very relaxing. The screened in porch was perfect for all of our meals! The sandy beach was wonderful for my grandchildren, they loved being in the water. We enjoyed the ferry to Frye Island , which is a short walk away. The fire pit was great for S'Mores!! We rented a boat and spent a day on the lake which is spectacular. The property was well maintained. Any issues that we had were immediately taken care of. John was an absolute pleasure to deal with, he was very responsive. It was truly a wonderful 2 weeks! A great get away!
Your review sure made us happy. So glad you enjoyed your two weeks. Please come back for another stay. Thanks!
Charming and clean lakehouse on gorgeous lake!
We had a lovely stay here, and luckily on the hottest week of the year! The house is nicely updated with wooden floors throughout. The sandy beach and clear water were a huge plus for us and our 4-year olds, as we were out in the water multiple times a day. The screened porch was also a big bonus; we ate there almost every meal. One bedroom has doors that open up right onto that porch so the morning views are lovely. We enjoyed the deck and fire pit and Frye Island and bald eagle sightings and visits from the ice cream truck throughout the week as well. Really a perfect little corner of the lake! The only feedback I have is that I don't think this place sleeps 10 *comfortably.* While the bunk house was being repaired the week we were there, having 6 adults and 2 kids in the main house was really pushing it (two adults had to sleep on the top bunks). There's also just one 3-seater couch in the living room, so if you anticipate any time watching movies/sports or hanging out inside if there's rain, it can feel quite crowded. The space is exactly as pictured, but is on the petite side. Luckily, there's plenty of outdoor space to make up for it. I would be happy to visit again, and would recommend this place to anyone. Thanks so much, John!
Glad you enjoyed your stay. The Bunkhouse repairs are completed. There are beds for 10 people for sleeping but it is not a large spacious house. More of a cute cottage.
