  • One of the best vacations we've ever taken

    "We intended to sit down and write this review for a couple of weeks now but life has gotten in the way. We are ready to jump in our car and head right back up to this great cottage on Highland Lake.. only we can’t because we have commitments at home and we are sure that someone else is already staying there. This is the first time we have stayed in a cottage not belonging to relatives and we were pleasantly surprised at how nice it was. We could have literally brought just a couple of changes of clothes, our toiletries and whatever food we wanted and that was it. Tom and Rita have everything you could want or need already in this cottage. The kitchen has every imaginable appliance from big to small. But the nice part is that the cabinets and counter tops were not cluttered. They have plenty of shelves in different rooms to make unpacking and cleaning up easier. The furniture was all very comfortable and clean. There was enough storage space to keep stuff out of sight which was nice because my family tends to clutter rooms up claiming they have nowhere to store things. Not a problem there. We decided to make use of the optional linen service and what a great idea. The beds were already made and plenty of shower towels and beach towels were available. My favorite indoor spot was on the screened porch overlooking the lake. My favorite outdoor spot was early mornings on the dock watching the rowers and listening to the loons or - wait…..maybe it was the hammock hung in the perfect spot for an afternoon snooze or maybe it was the front bedroom where you could fall asleep overlooking the lake. We had several campfires (there was plenty of split wood and kindling) and sat in comfy Adirondack chairs that overlooked the water. It was great to have use of all the water craft, the beach and two more chairs on the dock. We loved the way Rita and Tom checked in on us when we first arrived to be sure we had everything we needed. The town of Bridgeton with its quaint antique shops and boutiques was just a short walk from the cottage which was nice for us because we live at least 8 miles from the nearest store at home. We could go on and on about all of the great features of this cottage and its’ owners but we’re sure it has all been said over and over again by others. Thanks Rita and Tom for a wonderful vacation!"

  • Absolute Perfection

    "We have just returned from spending an idyllic week with our children and grandchildren at Sylph Lodge, a truly authentic Sebago Lake camp. You know you have discovered a very special home when, within 24 hours of your arrival, you book your 2nd family visit for August 2017. Andy greeted us as we drove down the driveway and his tour of the Lodge made us feel instantly at home. The accommodations were very comfortable for 6 adults and two, young children. My first memory was walking through the kitchen to the dining room and spotting the basket of homemade blueberry muffins (secret family recipe) on the table. They were delicious and enjoyed by all. We wasted no time in finding our way down to the beach. We not only had 30 feet of beachfront but a dock and a float. Our grandsons are 1 and 3 years old so the gradual entry into the water was perfect. By the end of our visit, our eldest grandson had taken a supervised "swim" out to the float. There is a large outdoor deck with a stone fireplace. It became a gathering spot for chatting/reading during the day and roasting marshmallows and making s'mores in the evening. Our children and grandchildren are very precious to us and to be able to spend a week together in this incredible setting was a blessing. What memories we made during these seven days. Now, we will begin to plan for our return next summer. Our children and their families live in Minnesota and Tennessee so this may very well become an annual family tradition. Andy and Christopher, thank you for being the MOST AWESOME hosts anyone could ever hope for. You went out of your way to make sure we had everything we needed and we sincerely appreciate your kindness."
