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.

Perfect for families with dogs
George and his family are so kind. It was an awesome vacation, we are very thankful!
New favorite place on Sebago
First of all the owners are two of the nicest people you’d ever want to meet. And when they say they are dog- friendly, they really mean it! The place is small but comfortable and very clean. The beach is nice and sandy and clean. The view from the cabin is lovely. Everything in the cabin was working and the owners checked up on us to see if we needed anything. We are definitely planning to return- we had a great time!
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.
