Perfect place for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house and would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay, swim, and boat on Sebago Lake.

The location on the lake was perfect. The calm cove made for great swimming at the sandy private beach, and the location on the lake was great for boating. Very close to Frye's island with easy access to everything. The kayaks at the house were wonderful to use and we were able to keep our boats at the dock.

The house was very clean and well maintained. The size was impressive - three bedrooms upstairs plus a full walk-out basement with two bedrooms. Air conditioning made our stay very comfortable in humid weather. We really appreciated the second fridge in the basement to store extra food and drinks. Internet and cable TV allowed us to stay connected during our stay. The covered second-story deck was enclosed so it was safe to have our toddler on the deck without worrying. The deck was perfect for morning coffee and evening cocktails - we spent most of our time out there.

We could not have picked a better place to stay. We hope to be back in the coming years! A big thank you to the Brewster family.

Fabulous vacation! Such a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home during the first week of July, 2017. The owner called us on our first full day there to check in to see if everything was going well, which it was!

The home was very well stocked with anything you could possibly need .

The layout of the house was perfect and it was decorated beautifully. I was surprised at the amount of room there was and was very pleasantly surprised by the lower level which had a nice living area, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms. Our boys immediately claimed this area! My favorite part of the home was the amazing deck which has ceiling fans above. I sat on the rocking chair each morning while enjoying my coffee and taking in the amazing view of the lake. The landscaping is stunning and we took full advantage of the fire pit and roasted marshmallows to make s'mores.

The girls used the kayaks every day and we enjoyed sitting on the dock and getting some much needed rest.

We met several neighbors and they were all very welcoming and friendly.

We have rented many homes through VRBO and this was by far, our favorite one!

We hope to return again next year!!

Thanks Louise and Jim!

Very well laid out and fully stocked

  • 5 of 5

I was impressed that the hosts checked in w me the day after we arrived to make sure everything was good. The place is very well laid out and well stocked. Very clean.. Great for extended family w small kids bc the entire downstairs is a complete suite unto itself w a small kitchen, bathroom, living room, and two bedrooms. Upstairs, likewise, is super comfortable.

Nice house with Unethical Owners

  • 1 of 5

This is very nice properly which unfortunately has very inexperienced and unreasonable owners. We rented this property with 3 families including 6 adults, 3 toddlers, and one dog for a week in July of 2016. There were a number of cleanliness issues upon arriving at the house, but we chose not to bother the owners with them and just took care of them ourselves.

We spent a long time cleaning up before we left, and, after a week of relaxing vacation, receiving a frantic phone call from the owner on the drive home followed by a series of very negative emails which I would not want other families to experience coming back from a vacation. We didn't wash the linens as we did not see that this was required in the contract which was our mistake. However, we were charged an exceptionally unfair amount of our deposit in addition to the cleaning fee we already paid for both routine cleaning tasks (trash emptying, stove cleaning, etc) and maintenance of household issues we did not cause. In the subsequent communications we gave the owners every opportunity to do the right thing, explained every perceived issue, and they responded with condescending remarks and a clear lack of experience in renting properties.

I have rented at least 20 properties through VRBO and have never received anything less than my full deposit back or written a 1 star review. Unless you want to spend your vacation wondering if you are going get your deposit back and the week after dealing with unprofessional, unkind communications I would urge you to look elsewhere. I really dislike writing negative reviews but I do not want others to have the same poor experience and hope this is helpful to anyone looking to rent at Sebago.

Owner's Response: It is unfortunate that Chris posted such a comment and rated our home with one star. What is an owner to do when there is a broken fridge, excessive trash left throughout the house (including diaper trash left in the master bedroom), food in the fridge, ground-in food spills on the cloth-upholstered kitchen chairs, 9-people's worth of linens used for a week to WASH (note - which much of it had to be done offsite due to new renters coming in that afternoon), etc.... We had no choice but to hold some of his deposit to cover the expense associated with their stay/departure. Sorry - but there is nothing unethical or inexperienced about that. Best of luck to you in your future rentals, Chris.

Great week on Whittemore Cove, Sebago Lake!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great week staying here with our daughter, our son-in-law, and our 1 year old grandson. The deck off the dining area was perfect for morning coffee or dinner outside overlooking the cove, and the beach area was just great for the one year old. The cove is shallow and sandy which made it ideal for little ones just splashing or wanting to play in the sand. It also meant that the water was WARM! Not something you can usually say about Sebago Lake! We rented a pontoon boat for the week and were able to dock it easily at the property and had some great times out on the water.

The house itself suited us perfectly. The master bedroom is large and comfortable and my daughter and her family were able to spread out in the other two upstairs bedrooms. The upstairs washer and dryer were particularly useful with the one year old!

We ventured into Naples for dinner one night with the whole family (Freedom Cafe) and my husband and a few of us took in a movie at Smitty's in Windham. We picked up our groceries at Shaw's and Hannaford's markets in Windham.

All in all, a great vacation!

Owner's Response: Karen and her family were wonderful to rent to. When your association's road commissioner goes out of his way to tell you (and our cleaning person too!) - you know you have a great family in your home. We would be very pleased to rent to them again.
