About Kirsten Simmons
Hello there! My name is Kirsten and my husband, Adam and I purchased this home in 2013 and have been renovating it ever since. I grew up in central Maine, in the Belgrade Lakes region and have been looking forward to owning a home on the water since I was a kid. We love to buy old neglected homes and bring them back to life...almost as much as antiquing in this area. Its a gold mine! I am a pediatric nurse and Adam is an epidemiologist by day, and handy man at night.

Why Kirsten Simmons chose Naples
If you are looking to vacation on a lakefront property, but don't want to compromise on the luxuries of your home, this is your place! The whole house has just been renovated and will be sure to please even the toughest of mother-in-laws!
What makes this House unique
We love this home because of how peaceful it is to sit on the outdoor sectional on the deck with your feet up, drink in hand, and the loons singing in the background.

4th of July stay!!
Our family really enjoyed our entire week stay. The weather was in our favor. The home was as described and then some. Home was stocked with everything needed. Beds were comfy and clean. The dock was great and the bugs weren’t bad at all. We had fun two nights full of fireworks from neighbors. Our family plans to return for another family vacation!! No complaints from this family. Thanks again Kirsten and Adam!!!
Great spot, clean comfortable home.
We had a wonderful two weeks! Only 1 day of rain. Kirsten and Adam have done a great job making the house clean and comfortable.
House is Equipped with everything you need to have a relaxing vacation.
Great property, location and furnishings
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house. The cove is quiet and mostly calm so easy to paddle board and kayak around. The dock is small but provides all the access needed for a boat, and the small beach area is sandy and comfortable to walk into. The house is clean and furnished beautifully and the vaulted ceiling makes it feel larger than it is. There is no musty camp smell. A huge bonus was that towels and linens were all included and were all good quality - loved not having to pack all those items. The deck is nice - but you need LOTS of bug spray to be comfortable. The neighborhood is nice for walking the dogs - quiet roads. Overall a great vacation house!
Cabin was clean, well maintained and had more than we needed.
Inside the cabin was great. The outside had a few minor issues.
The grade in back is steep, not as bad as other properties on the lake but, many steps the the lake.
The dock was slightly under bouyant and sank if two people stood on the same side. Not a major issue. We rented a pontoon boat from causeway marina. The dock was adequate for the boat and it served us well.
There is a fire pit, we found the area around it too steep to enjoy it. Chairs fell over and it felt awkward while sitting. Would have used it more had we been able to sit around it. The hammock was nice.
We recently stayed at this lovely home Mid-June 2017. We were all very pleased with the property and the amenities provided. My wife and I brought up our 9 month old and had a great time playing in the water and spent a lot of time on the dock and down by the fire pit. The cove the property is on is a wonderfully quiet section of the lake, and seemed like we were the only people on our private section of Sebago. Yes there are stairs going down to the water but if you look through the pictures you should have an understanding of what to anticipate. The house itself was VERY clean, and stocked with a lot of spices, water, and extras that we were not counting on but very happy to have provided for us. We felt right at home after our first night and enjoyed the privacy the property provides. The one minor point I would make is that it seems common for the lake to be higher at the time of year we stayed, and so the "beach" area was underwater. It actually turned out to be a blessing in disguise as our little one enjoyed floating in her tube and being able to kick her feet against the lake bottom, which was a clean sandy area because it was where the beach would have been. The owners were very quick in any questions I had, and bent over backwards to allow us to check in early and almost get a full extra day in our stay. I would absolutely recommend this rental to any family and friends and look forward to staying again in the future.
Beautiful lake! Disappointing house!
Sebago Lake is a beautiful lake. We had a wonderful time boating, kneeboarding, and swimming! And we had perfect weather.
The owners were helpful and answered our questions. But we found that the pictures and description of the house didn't match up. The kitchen and bathroom were nice. But the kitchen does not have a well stocked pantry as described. It was very limited, so be sure to bring your own spices if you plan to cook. Also make sure to bring your own toilet paper and paper towels as the supply was very limited. All the decking is very dinghy and the room that is described as a sun porch is most certainly not a sun porch. It is a storage area with a fridge that doesn't work. There is no relaxation station raft as shown in the pictures and described in the email the owners send which was disappointing as our kids were looking forward to it. The bedrooms are musty. And the kitchen table only has seating for 4.
And if you are bringing a boat from out of state make sure to buy a milfoil protection sticker for $20.00. We didn't know about this and received a $130.00 ticket from the game warden. The owners covered $50 of it but I feel they should have covered the whole ticket since they were unaware of this and didn't inform us of it.
Overall we enjoyed the area very much but we were disappointed in the house and would not recommend it or return to this house.
There are many great family friendly restaurants just four miles down the road as well as a huge public beach for the kids to play on, if they get bored with the private beach right in front of the house! There is also an amusement park in the next town over that has bumper cars, mini-golf, and much more. There are also several outdoor bars with live music on weekend nights. If you like to golf, the Point Sebago golf resort is right down the road. There is also an amusement park for both the kids and adults that has go karts, mini-golf and much more just a few miles down the road. Portland and the Old Port are only 45 minutes away if you like great restaurants, nightlife, and shopping. Also, if you like nature, the Sebago Lake State Park is only 2 miles down the road.
* Please note that we only rent out by the week in the summer *
