Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-9)

Swim in Sebago Lake, one of the cleanest lakes in the US. This property has been owned and used as a private vacation home for 50+ years by the same family. This is not hotel or company managed vacation space.

Cozy, clean, NON SMOKING, surrounded by Sebago Lake State Park. 1 of 7 cottages sharing a private beach, easy 1 minute walk along the road between homes in front of our cottage. Entry is gradual, water level is high in early summer. (Note: high water level in early season may result in no beach.) Water shoes are helpful, footing is a mixture of small rocks and sand. Walk 5 minutes to a large, long, sandy State Park beach with picnic facilities, snack bar, bathrooms, volleyball and playgrounds. Trails run throughout the Park and link the beaches. A trail runs right behind our cottage. Our State Park Season Pass is provided.

Horseshoe pit, screened porch and decks, charcoal barbeque and wood firepit. A great vacation spot for a family with young children, offering a bit of safety in distance from water. There's space; you won't feel bothered by neighbors.

Drive 5 minutes to Point Sebago Golf Course; 5 minutes to Naples. Park on the causeway and walk in any direction to find things to do. Portland is 30 minutes away. Children's Museum, Art Museum, Old Port - great restaurants, unique shops, tours and cruises. North Conway, NH, heart of the White Mountains, tax free outlet shopping is 50 minutes away.

About Scott Fershleiser

Pam and Scott, second generation owners, live in western Massachusetts. We can't spend as much time as we'd like at the lake.

Scott Fershleiser purchased this house in 1963

Why Scott Fershleiser chose Sebago Lake

Great private setting for families. Safe distance from water. Miles of well maintained hiking trails out our back door. Miles of awesome kayaking. Crystal clear swimming.

What makes this house unique

Sebago is a large, very clean lake. We kayak on it and the rivers that feed it. Great beach and trail walks through the State Park.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great Location! The State Park locks the gate at night - so don't forget your key. Well equipped cottage, we made bread in the breadmaker.

Beautiful, relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time here. Location at the end of the road was very nice and quiet. The lakeside scenery is spectacular. Plenty of private beach and public beach, mostly empty this time of the year. All of our needs were met in the cabin. The kayak was greatly enjoyed by all of us. We would definitely consider returning again.

Wonderful Property!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with a group of 8 over a long weekend and had a wonderful time! Proximity to state park beach, boat ramp and town was very convenient. Enjoyed the fire pit and screen porch! We had bad weather one day so unfortunately didn't get to use the kayaks or horseshoe pit but had plenty of room in the house and were able to entertain ourselves with the massive collection of DVDs and board games! The unlocking/locking of the state park gate (5-7 min drive from the house) after hours was a little tricky as we had people coming and going at different times but it was manageable. Scott was very responsive and his property manager Scott was very helpful in showing us around and giving us suggestions about where to eat/boat. Overall a great stay!

Amazing spot for relaxation and enjoying the outdoors!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time my fiancé and I stayed at this house in Sebago state park. We enjoyed everything about this location from the secluded, quiet setting to the hiking, kayaking, and walks on the beach. The house is spacious and clean, perfect for a couple or more. A great area outdoors with plenty of seating, fire pit, grill and more. We will definitely come back again.

Just keep coming back

  • 5 of 5

This was my third summer at the lake house, and we've just renewed for a 4th year. We love this place and it has become part of our family tradition. The owners and caretakers are super attentive, and the state park is absolutely the best for our larger family get-togethers. The kids always look forward to going.

roomy and private

  • 4 of 5

Ample space for my family and visitors. Especially enjoyed nearby state park beach but not the private beach which wasn't really a beach. And the Cub Cove beach was occupied.

Owner's Response: Thank you for feedback. The private beach is subject to the state's raising and lowering of Sebago Lake. Usually the high spring water level is lowered to a point that creates our private beach by early July, but this year lake level was not sufficiently lowered until mid July. Glad the nearby state park beach was enjoyed.
