About Janice Brown

Moved from Colorado to Northboro, MA. We have been working on the renovations of this cottage for 14 years after many years of planning. Our children love the island and have grown up here and is their favorite vacation place now.

Janice Brown purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Janice Brown chose Frye Island

Friends introduced us to this island and we all bought our own cottage on the island. A great place to socialize and relax.

What makes this cottage unique

A great family place whether you want to play games inside or enjoy many of the outdoor activities.

Immaculately clean and beautifully appointed cottage with view of water and short walk to beach

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our family get-away on Frye Island. The owners provided kayaks and canoe at the west facing beach that had gorgeous sunset views and crystal clear water. The ferry was easy and prompt. Walking to the island store for ice cream after dinner was good fun. The kids loved biking, running, swimming, boating, etc. The kitchen is fully equipped and the bedrooms are nicely decorated. Hardwood floors and outdoor shower plus foot wash station made it easy to keep clean after a day at the beach.

Great location, great cottage, most relaxing vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week on Frye Island, our first visit there. We loved every minute, and the personality, location, and amenities of this cottage combined to make it a wonderful vacation for our family. We agree with everything mentioned in the "Fantastic Frye Island Stay" review as well. The cabin has recently been remodeled, and it IS cozy and comfortable and beautifully finished. It is open and airy, and there is an additional loft space with a TV upstairs, as well as a sweet little front room that I guess could be called the "sunset room". The kitchen is well stocked, everything is very clean and well cared for, the décor is whimsical and full of personality, there are plenty of games and books for a rainy day, and the owner provides 2 kayaks, a canoe, life vests and beach chairs for use at the beach. There are many beaches on Frye Island and it is fun to visit several of them. Our favorite turned out to be the beautiful beach closest to the cottage ( a very easy 3 minute walk). Sunsets over the lake and NH mountains are not to be missed from this beach.

We also enjoyed walking to the Frye Island store and ice cream stand at the ferry, and one evening we walked back under the stars. (Bring a flashlight!). And we enjoyed a delicious meal at the Frye's Leap Café.

The island pace is very relaxed. A typical day for our family which included my husband and I and our adult children was to start the day with a cup of coffee on the deck or while walking early in the morning, then a kayak ride, swimming, and reading at the beach, and then watching the sunset over the lake. We also rented a boat one day and toured the lake.

There are lots of other organized activities as mentioned in earlier reviews that are available for younger children, as well as golf and tennis.

For runners, we found that to run the entire island equals just about a 10K. And to kayak around the island takes at least 2 hours. We recommend doing both.

The owners were so very helpful providing us with information prior to and during our visit. We did not lack for anything, except a washer and dryer which I believe they will be installing in the near future. But we mostly only wore bathing suits, so it really wasn't a necessity!!

Experience Frye Island and the beautiful Sebago Lake--we hope to return in the near future, and would definitely rent this sweet cottage again! Thank you for everything Chuck and Jan!

Fantastic Frye Island Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our three-generation family with grandmother, mother, and grandson had a fantastic stay at this lovely home on Frye Island in Sebago Lake. The owner had told us that a stay on Frye Island was all about the water, but the rental home itself was a highlight as well. The home was about a three-minute walk from one of several beaches on the island, and the family offered us use of their two kayaks, a canoe, life vests, and beach chairs. The water was great for swimming and kayaking, and the sandy beaches were clean. The home was a perfect fit for our family with three bedrooms, an open-space living-dining-kitchen area, an upstairs loft with television and dvd player, two bathrooms, and a deck with table and chairs and grill. The home was immaculate and fully equipped with dishes, cooking utensils, and cleaning supplies. It was beautifully designed, comfortably furnished, and exquisitely decorated with delightful visual motifs. Frye Island offers excellent recreational opportunities for children. Our 9-year-old took part in the field games, soccer games, opportunities for making crafts at the community center, as well as an evening “Candy” Game, which several children on the island attended. There were also a playground and basketball court and tennis court at the community center. With a 20 mph speed limit on the island, the bicycling was safe for children. A busy restaurant, ice cream stand, and store were located near the ferry landing and were fun places to visit. The owners were very helpful with their communication with us prior to our arrival. We look forward to another visit in the future and recommend this island experience and rental home wholeheartedly.
