Hi, I am Kyle Rhoads and I usually respond to rental inquiries. The cottage is family-owned with my parents, Cathy and Rich Rhoads, as the caretakers. My wife, Carrie, and my sister, Lynley, often help keep the cottage maintained and cleaned. We are family of educators with my parents both retired educators. I am a Principal of a local elementary school and my sister and wife are both counselors in schools. We love this location for the family memories, the peaceful living and our love for watersports. My Dad loves to fish and often helps renters know where to find the best spots to catch 'the big one' that did not get away!
Kyle purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why Kyle chose Naples
Our family bought the cottage to have a place for present and future generations of our family to relax and enjoy the summer months on the water in Maine. Because of taxes and the mortgage payments, we rent the cottage so we can keep the cottage owned by our family.
What makes this Cottage unique
The enclosed porch is a great spot to sip coffee and read a book without the worry of a mosquito! The natural smell of pine needles helps you relax and remember the true beauty of the Maine landscape. The cottage is well-maintained and kept clean but the interior makes you feel that you went back in time!

Loved every minute here and Kyle was a perfect host. I recommend this great place to anyone who love
Just perfect as always!
Just the place you need to unwind!
Kyle and his family were very friendly and accomodating. Cottage is nestled in a grove of tall pines and is very quiet at night. Although there are cottages close by we were never disturbed. It is very close by to nearby towns and Sebago Lake. It's a beautiful part of Maine to visit and this cottage was an affordable getaway for us and our two dogs! Thanks again!
Relaxing and enjoyable get away
Very peaceful, relaxing get away on the Crooked River. The cabin has everything you need. Best for a rustic, low key vacation with great access to the water and the many connecting lakes.
this property is just about perfect.
The owners are great. Helpful with information , and always available if you need them. The river sis beautiful,and great for swimming, boating and fishing, and you can get down river right into Sebago Lake,though we found the river more relaxing.
I really can't think of anything that the Rhoads Family didn't think of.
In short this place is relaxation personified.
Absolutely beautiful spot.
The cottage had the exact rustic feel I was looking for, from the wood walls to the smell. I loved it. There is lots of room and had all the comforts you need. Kyle and his family were friendly and quickly responded to our needs when necessary. I highly recommend.
Rustic and charming
We enjoyed our stay in this charming cabin. It brought back childhood memories of a cabin my grandparents had. Even though there are cottages on each side of this cabin, it is a very quiet setting and private enough. It was beautiful to just sit and watch the river - very picturesque. It reminded me of the Huckelberry Finn book where Huck and Jim are on the raft sailing down the river. Kyle provides a lot of information of things to do and places to visit. I don't think he has updated the information book for a while as Sandy's Restaurant has been closed for two years, and Blacksmith's wine tasting has also closed. There are other places Kyle recommended such as Butcher's where we had excellent lobster and The Black Horse Tavern in Bridgeton (not sure of the spelling) where we enjoyed an excellent meal. Kyle and his parents are very attentive to the needs of their renters. If you like rustic and a place to sit back and chill, then this is the place for you. If you are planning on going with a number of people and have knee problems or a physical debilitation of some sort and cannot stay in the downstairs bedroom - would not recommend as the stairs to the two loft bedrooms are very steep and difficult to navigate.
The area is truly a four season delight! In the summer, many vacationers visit the Lake Region to fish, boat, sightsee, kayak, canoe, and just relax on one of the many bodies of water. In the fall, the region is known for wonderful fall foliage. Hunters visit to hunt for various game such as deer and turkey. In the winter, vacationers come for the snow for snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and downhill skiing. The Crooked River provides you boat access to Sebago Lake, Brandy Pond and Long Lake.
