Enjoy a walk or hike in one of the many parks or oceanfront paths in nearby towns and cities. (Rachel Carlson's Wildlife Refuge, Marginal Way in Ogunquit, and Fort Williams Park in Portland to view Portland Headlight).

Taste sampling the many seafood eateries or the fine restaurants in Portland. One guest last year attended Harvest on the Harbor, a five-day festival of food in Portland.

Some of our guests enjoyed sitting on the rocking chairs at the cottage and observing the brilliant foliage reflecting on Sebago Lake and hearing the call of the loons. Others took day trips. The first two weeks in October are usually the best weeks for viewing in southern Maine but the colorful foliage lasts to the end of October.


Many attended fairs and festivals. Some of the most popular were the Fryeburg Fair, Fall Festival in Freeport, and the Cumberland County Fair. Here are some more activities:

*Damariscotta Pumpkinfest and Regatta
*Harvest On The Harbor in Portland - Culinary creations from Maine's top chefs
*Fall Foliage Festival - Boothbay Railway Village
*Harvest Festival - Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village
*Fall Festival and Chili Cook-Off - Shawnee Peak
*Camp Sunshine Maine Pumpkin Festival
*Harvest Festival Pineland Farms
*Leaf Peeping Trips
*Harbor Cruises to Lighthouses
*Fall Foliage Train Trip

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Marian and Bob Wright are proudly pictured with some of their grandchildren.

Why the Owner Chose Raymond, ME, USA:
We take great pride in our cottage and keep it in immaculate shape and clean. Another one of our goals is to supply guest renters with an experience greater than what they expected. The cottage is located on an acre of land with lots of flowers and a grassy lawn. There's a sandy beach and a deep-water dock for a boat. We bought this property because it borders our next door home. Waterfront properties such as this don't come on the market frequently. Plus it has a beautiful view and is a level acre of land.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We consider this location on Big Sebago Lake as 'Paradise', which is why our home is located next door. Please read the many reviews by guests who have stayed at the cottage. Due to our guests' allergies we do not allow pets or smoking in the cottage or on the property grounds. Marian and I personally clean the cottage, and groom the flower beds to make things as tidy and attractive as possible. The lawn is mowed by a service company usually on a weekly basis or as needed. The neighborhood is very quiet therefore only a maximum of 6 people are allowed on the property or in the cottage at any time. Enjoy visiting the lighthouses that line the rocky coast. Spend a day shopping in the Old Port, exploring the natural habitat, dining in one of Portland's famous restaurants, and attending a concert in the evening. Attend the Boat builders Show, Portland Museum, or the Portland Flower Show. Take a cruise on the bay or in the harbor. Visit the Maine Wildlife Park or one of Maine's State Parks. Fish, canoe, or kayak on Sebago Lake. See the Sea Dogs, the AA affiliate of the Red Sox play at, Hadlock Field. Attend one of L.L. Bean's spring work shops or visit the shopping outlets in Kittery, ME, Freeport, ME or North Conway, NH. Spring skiing at Sunday River may even be possible. WE INVITE YOU TO READ OUR REVIEWS and explore the abundance of Maine's natural, cultural, and recreational activities. Vacation land awaits.
