About George Gordon
My wife and I purchased the house in the early 1970’s on Sebago Lake, and this property is very near and dear to our hearts. We own two homes next to each other on the lake, and rent this one out throughout the summer. I (George Gordon) am a retired periodontist and my wife, Bobbie Gordon, is a retired educator and consultant. We look forward to your visit and will be more than happy to help steer you to some of the great local restaurants, lobster pounds, and places of interest to your family.
George Gordon purchased this House in 1973
Why George Gordon chose Raymond
We bought the house on Sebago Lake for a retreat from life in Cape Elizabeth (suburb of Portland, Maine) during the summer. Our four boys were raised at the lake and we have many fond memories that were solidified while vacationing at Sebago Lake. Our grandchildren are now building up their own Sebago Lake memories.

Sports & Adventure Activities
I've just returned from an absolutely marvelous week at this glorious property and cottage on Lake Sebago. I had grown up summering on a lake but had been spending more time on the ocean in recent years, but never again. A lake... especially this lake and house...are the place for me. The cottage is rustic, with beautiful knotty pine walls and comfy leather couches and chairs for time spent in the house. The house was fully equipped with all one needs for an easy and comfortable stay, and the sandy beach was only about fifty paces away. Wifi, fire pit, raft, grills...everything was as advertised and working perfectly. I have rented houses for many years and this was the best in terms of supplies for kitchen , bathroom. etc. The owners, who live in a house close, are helpful, friendly and unobtrusive....but when we did get together for a barbecue it was a delightful evening. The house was very comfortable for 4 adults and 2 teenagers, and additional guests were so impressed they want to rent for next year. The lake is marvelous...quiet, clear and peaceful, a perfect getaway to relax and enjoy the wonderful Maine scenery . When you turn off the main road to get to the cabin you will find a tranquil and secluded cottage in a beautiful setting just 3 minutes away from civilization and all that you might need. Everything in the ad is true about this property but you will find much more to make your vacation memorable. I recommend this perfect spot for anyone who wants a wonderful Maine vacation. I am definitely going back next year.
Wonderful Family Vacation (w/ 3 Teenagers)
Quiet, well-stocked, well-loved lakeside cottage exactly as advertised - sandy beach, swimming dock, excellent wifi/cable, good laundry (in basement), charcoal grill and gas grill, perfectly comfortable for our family of 5 (including 3 teenagers). Kitchen was thankfully outfitted with every conceivable pan, pot, strainer, knife, etc. Enjoyed s'mores on the beach using the firepit (ample firewood provided by owners) - Adirondack chairs were comfortable, plentiful and easy to move around the sand for perfect sun. One fun side note - there's a small island (really just a huge jumble of glacial granite boulders with a tree and some vegetation) about 300-400 yards off the beach - amazingly fun to swim out with snorkles and goggles to explore two sunken barges, schools of fish and rock formations (water only about 8-10 feet deep). Owners George and Bobbie were delightful - checked in on us as needed but not at all intrusive. To be fair: you are sharing a house on their (immaculate) property - so if you want absolute and total beach privacy this might not be an ideal choice. But for a family we couldn't have asked for a much better arrangement. 15 mins drive to good local restaurants, markets, Segago Lake State Park.
Peaceful and Welcoming
My wife and I spent a wonderful week at this cottage. The location of the cottage was away from the main roads, just a few footsteps from Sebago Lake with a breathtaking view of the lake. The cottage was exactly what we were looking for... vintage, yet welcoming, clean and comfortable. The grounds were well kept and the Owners and their family were very friendly and helpful in making sure that our stay was perfect.

Coffee & morning sun
My wife & I took this lovely cottage for a week in early June. We had family & friends join us throughout our stay. There was plenty of room for us all, though we spent most of our time outside. The beach front is terrific, especially in the morning. Facing east, the rising sun warms us as does our coffee. Our hosts, the Gordons, are very gracious & accommodating.
Their entire family pitched in to make us feel welcome. As remote as this cottage feels, with many species of birds flitting about in the tall trees or paddling in the estuary, it's close enough to have a pizza delivered from the local village or a short drive for Thai food.
The youngsters in our crowd found plenty of activities from water themed adventures to hiking and more but my bride of 30+ years and I most enjoyed the quiet time and sunny mornings on the beach with our coffee. As for the return to this slice of paradise by the water, it's just a matter of when we can all get away together.
Our family of four (parents plus two young daughters) just returned from this property a couple of weeks ago and we give it eight thumbs up! Actually twelve thumbs up as we had two visitors while we were up there. We couldn’t have had a more perfect vacation.
The property came just as advertised. We’ve rented properties all over Lake Sebago and nearby lakes the last five years and before that lakes in NH and VT. This is definitely one of the top rental properties in terms of the physical aspects – sandy beach on a clear, fresh-water lake, child/toddler-friendly landscaping, a clean and well-equipped house (bedding and towels must be supplied by guests) large enough to accommodate our family and visiting friends and relatives. But what really makes this place special is the people (and dog!). The owners, George and Bobbi, live next door and they were the most attentive and generous “landlords” we’ve ever had the pleasure to deal with (from the moment we contacted them via this website to the time we got our deposit check back). Just as a small example, at one point my wife needed a sieve for cooking as our kitchen, which was otherwise well equipped, did not have one. She asked George if they had one to borrow. George came by next day with one. He never even mentioned it, but it was clearly bought new just for us. He could have just said he didn’t have one and that would have been the end of it, but he went out of his way to get it for us.
We also very much enjoyed his grown up children and their children. Sharing the beach may be a put off for some, but the property and certainly the lake are large enough to accommodate all. In fact, our seven year old got along fabulously with one of the grandchildren. On this vacation we never heard the oft complaint from past years -- “Dad, there’s nothing to do!” (other than swimming, building sand castles, going on canoe rides, catching critters and fish, roasting marshmellows, etc., etc. – all of which we did). Having a friendly golden retriever also was a huge hit with our children.
We will definitely return.
When we arrived, the property was very clean and stocked with basic supply's . The property is very well maintained and what beautiful landscaping the property is surrounded by. The views of the water and the beach is absolutely beautiful !
The home owners were so kind and welcoming and could of not done enough to make our stay comfortable. The home owner was so nice to let us know where to shop, bike, boat, etc. In addition we rented a boat for a few days and the home owner was more than happy to accommodate and recommend the best spot on the beach to dock the boat.
We had our two dogs with us all week and the home owners dog became instance friends. There dog actually taught/encouraged our dog to swim and fetch a ball thrown into the water.
We had the best time and our friends and family who came and went all week felt the same way we do.
We cannot wait to return next year and hoping it will be a two week stay.
