Such amazing house right on the lake great location

  • 5 of 5

To be able to sit on the dock right outside your back door and listen to the loons was amazing until I have a kayak right there to explore the lake was a great added pleasure

Great family vacation

  • 4 of 5

This is our second year renting in the Sebago Lake area. This area is wonderful. There's something for everyone. We rented a boat, and did lots of water sports. The house comes with a kayak and a paddle boat. It's 40 minutes from Portland which is a must for shopping and eating. This year we took day trips to Port Elizabeth and Peak's Island....beautiful. The house was very clean and comfortable. There is plenty of space for two families. The only reason I give it 4 stars is because there is no AC. A few nights were warm and muggy making it uncomfortable to sleep. Other than that I highly recommend this house. It's a peaceful area. We had a great time, and will be vacationing there again next year.

We were very impressed with the beautiful house with all amenities right on the lakefront. Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

The moment we stepped into the house, we fell in love with it. It had a great view of the lake from the living room and from the master bedroom. We loved waking up every morning looking out the window and enjoying the nice sunrise and watching the loons. There were many loons that came by the house every day. One day I was standing on the dock and two loons swam right under me under the dock and swam around in circles in front of me while they were underwater. Luckily, I was able to take several pictures of them. That was an amazing experience! It was almost like they knew I was there. We enjoyed kayaking and rented a motor boat and took the family tubing. The water was warm for swimming. Didn't have much luck fishing, but, still enjoyed it. We had several campfires in the nice fire pit, making s'mores and looking up at the stars. The lake was very relaxing and quiet. We also had a chance to jet ski with a relatives two jet skis they brought over for a day. The yard and dock were nice and big. Perfect for just sitting and relaxing. The deck was good size and the grill worked fine. The inside of the house was very nice with everything we needed. Overall, the place was perfect. We really enjoyed it and the owners were very gracious and helpful. Diane answered my every question thoroughly and always responded very quickly. She was very easy to communicate with. This place was very relaxing. Just awesome!

Great family experience

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful week on Panther Pond. Our boys (4 and 8) loved fighting over the bunk beds when we arrived. The pond was quiet and the swimming was fantastic. The dock was perfect for their level of swimming. It was about a foot near the ladder and gradually progressed to about 5-6 feet at the end of the dock. Diane and Alan provided fun floatation mats which were quite the hit with our family. The small fish were abundant for fishing with a bobber and worms. My husband caught a few small mouth bass in the evenings. Our family enjoyed the fire pit (you do need to buy your own wood) which was very contained and safe for our children. The shoreline has rocks of all sizes and the boys spent hours climbing around them and watching the small fish swim around. We took a few outings, one to Naples for the arcade and mini golf and also to the small water playground at Seacoast Adventure in Windham. We lived on the heirloom tomatoes from Hancock Family Farm. Overall, it was a very relaxing week. The house was very clean and the kitchen well stocked. Having a washer and dryer was a big plus. Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven with us!!!!

Another perfect week!

  • 5 of 5

For the second year in a row, we had perfect weather, and a great time. The Loons were signing morning, noon and night. It was another family vacation full of memories that we will treasure. Accomidations at the house were perfect for our family, as well as access to the lake, swiming and local opportunities.
