About Alan Ross

My wife and I have been coming up to Maine and the island for over 30 years. We live in Massachusetts and just purchased another house on the island. We think you will love our rental and if you have any questions during your stay we are a minute away

Alan Ross purchased this house in 1986

Why Alan Ross chose Frye Island

I fell in love with the island in 1976 when I graduated from college. I rented here for almost 9 years before building this rental in 1986. All of our children grew up on the island and 2 of them hope to have vacation homes someday

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the Island and the lake. We decided we wanted to be on the western side of the island which has spectacular sunset and the most scenic views of Lake Sebago and the White Mountains. We built this rental in 1986 and in 2005 we purchased a lake front lot across the street to add to this property. We developed this private lot and beach with help from our neighbors and added a dock, beachfront storage box, bridge and mooring. So you now can enjoy our house and private beach. If you need a special kind of vacation the island will enchant you. There is so much to do if you want to and if you just want to relax you can

We had a great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Alan and Kathi were very gracious hosts, and we thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing stay on the island. The house was private and very comfortable, including the beds, which was a nice bonus. We had all of the household stuff that we needed for our stay, including plenty of toys for playing in the lake. Would definitely stay at their rental again, hopefully next summer :)

A small suggestion, we would have loved to see a patio and grill on the ground level instead of upstairs, and a fire pit for those cooler evenings would have been fantastic!

Owner's Response: Deann---we enjoyed having you as our guests!...kathi and i hope you come back again next year! Thank you for your suggestions....the grill being on the upstairs deck has been a positive for many for the firepit the island restricts fires for most of the summer

What a great property!

  • 5 of 5

I have been going to Frye Island for years, renting all over the island. Waterfront properties during peak season command quite a number. The only thing not on the water with this house is the home itself. The beach is very nice, the dock is in perfect condition and Alan and Kathy have all the water and beach toys you could ask for! Great owners, great property, great location!

Such a Special Place

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week long vacation to Frye Island and wanted to stay longer. The house was well appointed and the beds very comfortable -- water pressure was great too! My daughters loved swimming, mountain biking, fishing in the marina and getting ice cream at the Frye's Leap Store. My husband golfed with his father one day and we even took advantage of the pool. The lake water was very very could see the bottom from the swim docks around the various beaches. We loved the island feel and the lack of commercial enterprise. It was truly relaxing and we've already booked again for next year. Thank you Alan and Kathy for all your help....we had a blast!

Perfect Spot for Family

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here with our two boys (ages 6 & 4) and this place was perfect. Owner was helpful and available without being intrusive. The property itself exceeded our expectations. It is extremely well equipped. We could have left half of what we brought at home as they already had it (fishing poles, boat tube, bikes, oars, life jackets, beach chairs...). We also found the property itself to be quite a bit more impressive than anticipated. The beach area is quite a bit bigger than the online pictures indicate and is more sandy than pebbly and west facing location is perfect. Mooring came in quite handy and was easy swim from dock.

I am a Maine native and have spent time at many other spots on the lake. I've come to prefer Frye Island to staying on the shore as it provides all the positives without the crowding you can find with properties on the shoreline.

Very nice place and owner

  • 5 of 5

Owner was very kind and personable. Went there for a fishing trip with a couple of friends for the weekend and was pleasantly surprised by how accommodating and friendly Alan was. He accommodated us in a number of ways and received us very warmly. Would recommend staying here as the place is beautiful and the dock is private and has a magnificent view. I spent each night and morning on that dock enjoying coffee or a beer (depending on the time). Sunsets over mountains is amazing and I caught the biggest fish of my trip while just casually casting off that dock just before sunset. Great place to stay. Nice people. Quiet and relaxing area. If you haven't decided yet, stay here. Well worth it.

Great time had by all.

  • 5 of 5

My family (2 adults and 3 kids) had a wonderful stay on Frye Island. The hosts Alan and Kathi were the best. Upon arrival they made sure we were comfortable with the accomidations and asked that we call if we had any questions of concerns. The camp was comforatable and aptly described on the website. We had a fun week spending time on the water, playing tennis, biking, fishing and playing a round of golf. The dock and beach are wonderful- sunsets are spectactular. I do recommend this camp as a great place to stay while on Frye Island. We hope to return next year.
