About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Lake-Front Cottage

This Charming Sebago Lake getaway provides endless opportunities to relax and unwind. Conveniently located on southern Maine’s largest lake and only minutes to The Maine Turnpike and The Portland Jetport you’ll find everything you’ll need for an amazing vacation. This year round home features a master bedroom with a queen size bed, a second bedroom with bunk beds and a third bedroom with a twin bed over a double bed and plenty of room for sleeping bags if needed. In addition there are 2 bathrooms, 2 full kitchens and plenty of room to sit and chat or read a book. At waters edge there is 50’ of sandy beach frontage as well as your own private dock. Whether you want to go exploring one of several islands by kayak, wakeboarding in the basin, or fishing in the cove there is something for all ages. After a day of fun on the water retreat to the outdoor brick terrace equipped with a grill and fire pit overlooking the lake and reminisce with family and friends. No worries are needed as linens are provided as well as wifi for staying in touch. Less than a half hours drive you can visit LL Bean in Freeport, the Old Port on Portland’s waterfront or even catch a movie at a nearby drive in theater. A local favorite is to go by boat to Frye Island and have dinner on the outdoor patio and watch the sun set on a day filled with memories. Lastly toss some logs on the fire and get ready for some mouth watering s’mores under a star filled sky to end the perfect day!

Great Time!

  • 4 of 5

Very well maintained and clean house. The Basin location provides a lot of protection which came n handy on very windy days on the Big Lake. Still calm in the Basin. We had a great time and would recommend.

Great Vacation on Sebago Lake

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and comfortable on the beautiful lake.


House very well equipped. All you need to bring is paper products. All towels, beach towels, chairs, beach toys are provided.

House is very clean and comfortable. The furniture is very comfortable and the house is well maintained.

The house comes with two kayaks, lots of beach toys, chairs, fire pit tools. Everything you need for a wonderful vacation.

I loved the view of the lake and being on the water. Great for swimming and boating. Water is very clean and the view is beautiful.

Neighborhood is well maintained and quiet.

Close to grocery store and main strip but far away so you are quiet and relaxed.



This is a lovely property and perfect for a family vacation or romantic week on the lake. I would rent again!

Wonderful!! Couldn't' be better

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time, enjoyed every minute!! Wish it could have been longer. The accommodations were superb, very peaceful, and relaxing. It was everything we wanted, and more. The house was very clean and maintained. The location was accessible to all.

We would love to book again, and would recommend to any of our friend. We especially enjoyed the local seafood on RT302, i.e. Bob's--bought fresh lobsters there, and prepared them baked stuffed. Also enjoyed our first meal on Saturday evening there. Did lots of touring in the area, enjoyed the coastline, drove to Mt. Washington and rode the cog railway. My son and daughter had not experienced it.

As a reminder, the ceiling lights in the master and downstairs bedrooms both had burnt out ceiling light bulbs.

Thank you for the wonderful stay at your lake house.

We would highly recommend...John
