About the property

Get Your Fill Of The Outdoors In This Private 1.68 Acre Waterfront Rental

We are excited to share a little piece of heaven with people who love nature and spending time outdoors. Jordan Bay has very few seasonal residents or renters, making this neighborhood peaceful and intimate. We have 150' of waterfront and a large platform dock with a float (installed 2015) on the shores of one of the cleanest lakes in the USA and the water supply of greater Portland.

The property is 1.68 acres and has 5 structures on it: the main 2br house, the 1br cottage, the bunkhouse, a 2 car garage, and a workout gym. Renters have access to all buildings except the 2 car garage. The property is an ideal configuration for extended families or 2 families to share the expenses and enjoy both a private and combined space together.

The main house has 2 bedrooms (1 king, 1 queen) and a trundle bed in the living room (2 twins). The cottage has 1 queen bed. The bunkhouse has two bunkbeds (one is 2 twin beds and one has a twin + full bed - a great option for kids to have a sleep out of their own!). One of the garages has been converted to a gym with CrossFit equipment.

Our property is fenced on 3 sides (the unfenced side the the waterfront) and includes a smaller fenced-in area off the main house. We love dogs and welcome canine visitors as long as their humans pick up after them :) All gates along and within fence lines have carabiner clips to keep them secure if needed.

Waters Edge At Sebago is conveniently located to nearby shopping in North Windham, a gourmet market, a marina and only 35 minutes north of Portland, ME. It's about a 45 minute drive to Freeport via route 115 and about 12 minutes from the Maine Turnpike in Grey, ME.

The property is located less than a mile off a meandering private road from route 302. We are separated from route 302 by about 100+ acres of privately owned green space. Waters Edge is on Jordan Bay, a quiet cove of year round dwellers and a handful of seasonal homes. There is not a lot of car traffic or people coming and going in our area. The neighborhood has lots of beautiful roads for walking your dog or going for a long run. Everyone who spends time here loves the expansive beauty it offers - early morning calls of loons, the occasional fly by of a bald eagle, families of ducks swimming by to find their lunch, majestic sunsets, and gentle breezes to cool you down during the warm Maine summer nights.

We are health conscious people and Waters Edge at Sebago reflects our desire to live a healthy, active lifestyle. We have converted one of the structures into a CrossFit gym which includes a pullup bar, barbells, weights, weightlifting rack, wall balls, kettlebells, bands, and other mobility items.

The deepest lake in New England, Sebago Lake is a sandy bottom lake and retains the most glorious temperature from June - September. One dip in what we call "nature's bathwater" and you won't want to get out! Our property is ideal for the fisherman/woman, as we are directly in front of where the salmon run from nearby Panther Pond.

Waters Edge At Sebago is a strictly non-smoking property. (Anyone who smokes or would be inviting along friends/family who smoke will need to look elsewhere for a rental property). For this reason, we will not rent to large groups or those looking for a place to hold large parties or gatherings where the smoking policy can not be adequately enforced. Unfortunately our trust has already been broken by one such group, so this is a firm policy.

Please note: Maximum occupancy reflects the capacity of beds in both the main house and the cottage combined. There are bunkbeds ideal for children in the bunkhouse (3 twins and 1 double), but because there is no bathroom in the structure, we have NOT included it the total maximum capacity.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or unique requests.

Why Kristin Waters chose Raymond

We purchased Waters Edge At Sebago in July 2014 from a couple who had it in their family for over 50 years. From the minute we set foot on the property, we were overcome by the positive energy and staggering beauty of what it offered. It was obvious it had been well taken care of and stewarded with love over the years. We could also sense it had been host to many a good time and the site of many happy memories for many people.

Wonderful spot for family retreat

  • 4 of 5

Large property on Sebago Lake Maine. Great for family retreats. Great water front. Knowing the lake as I do I found the property is positioned such that it misses the afternoon prevailing wind. A real plus. A TV in the small cottage would be good.

Amazing camp for a family or group. Ton of room! Canoo, kayak, swim out floating dock! So much fun

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week and had lots of family over to enjoy the camp. We could not have asked for anything more. The owner is great, gave detailed info about the property and check out. The location was convenient for shopping and restaurants in the area. There is a Marina a few mins up the street where we rented a boat for the day. The sunsets were beautiful each night and there were loons, ducks and chipmunk all around. We even saw a pair of deer almost each day on the road leading to the camp. Very private and quiet camp. We will definitely be back!!!

Perfect for everyone''s needs!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of people who ranged in age from 1.3 years to 98! We were a group of friends and family who left as one big happy family. The accommodationa were perfect for the bit of privacy we craved but cozy enough to enjoy each other and the amazing nightly sunsets.

There is no doubt that we will be back in the very near future!

Gorgeous sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location and excellent accommodations. Water's Edge was perfect for our family of 6 adults, 2 toddlers, and 2 dogs. Spent the week boating, swimming, hiking, sight seeing, shopping, and just lounging by the lake. There was something to do for everyone! This is an awesome place to get the whole family together for a family vacation!

Map

Car: recommended

Waters Edge is ideally situated near shopping in North Windham (about 10 minutes away) and only 1.5 miles south of the delicious gourmet market, The Good Life Market (great option for lunches - call ahead to avoid long lines). It's convenient to the Maine Turnpike (about 15 min) and route 115 which takes you over to Freeport. Portland is an easy 35-40 minute drive (depending on the time and day of the week). Naples and Casco are easy 10 -15 minutes north.

Our property is also surrounded by quiet, ambling streets in a private area that are great for walks or running a few (or many) miles. It's also within walking distance of Cafe Sebago, which we believe offers the best lobster roll in the area. Just next to Cafe Sebago is an ice cream stand that is a great reason to walk to after a big dinner or enjoy after your lobster roll next door :)

The post office and a gas station are also just across 302 as you exit Clearwater Drive (the road you take to get to Waters Edge).
