  • A memorable first trip to Maine.

    "I have been debating whether to give this rental a four or five since we returned home. Let's get that out of the way first. I'm a fairly large person at 6' 2" and 220 lbs. The shower was, as simply as I can put it, a tight fit for me. It was pretty good otherwise, just small. The other thing was having to provide our own bed sheets and towels. This wouldn't be much of a concern if one were driving to the rental, but flying in to Portland and bringing these items along left a shortage of baggage space. Now to the good stuff. Sid's camp is definitely on the right side of Sebago Lake, sitting in a quiet neighborhood just across the road from the lake. It was an easy drive from the Portland airport with many interesting sights to view along the way. Highway 114, which separates the camp from the lake, is your main road to connect with highways leading to other parts of Maine you may want to visit. We used 114 almost every day. The camp itself is very comfortable with plenty of seating for the two of us. You could probably accommodate up to six people without much trouble. The kitchen was more than adequate for our needs. With two bedrooms and a sleeper sofa, the sleeping situation is more than taken care of. The deck off the back of the camp was a relaxing place to enjoy our coffee in the morning and a cocktail at the end of the day. The back yard is spacious, and the drive way would easily handle two or three vehicles. The neighborhood contains two jewels that I would be remiss not mentioning, O.Dan's Pub and Jordan's Store. Jordan's Store is similar to one I worked at 45 years ago. A small produce section, wonderful meat and deli section, a dairy section, soda, mixers, beer wine and liquor, whatever you need. They even have a pizza oven! The Patriots played on Sunday while we were visiting, and the pizzas were flying out the door! If you forgot it, check Jordan's. They probably have it. Then there's O.Dan's Pub. A HUGE list of local microbrews, and some of the best food we have eaten ANYWHERE! Those maple-glazed wings and sautéed brussels sprouts were just that, appetizers leading to the just-as-delicious entrees! A must-stop for anyone who is in the area. In conclusion, we enjoyed the camp so much that we are considering going back next year, even if it's just for a long weekend. Thank you, Sid, for sharing your Sebago Lake Camp with us. We had a wonderful time!"

  • Wonderful home in a great location

    "This home is the perfect size for a family of four and is in a wonderful spot right near beach 6 which isn't rocky, has a great amount of space to spread out and enjoy the view. While not right on the water, this home was within a three minute walk to the beach and a short drive away from the community center and golf course. The property was great for my young children (7 and 4) who loved catching toads and exploring the woods. Kevin was also fantastic to talk with-prompt and pleasant. I was actually shocked at how quickly he replied! If you're thinking of a trip to Frye Island this house is a great spot."

  • The Perfect Lake House

    "We stayed in Liz's home for an annual getaway with five families: 20 people in all, 10 adults, 10 kids. And this house was pretty much ... perfect. Even with 20 people, the house is large enough that we had plenty of room for everyone. The accommodations themselves were almost luxurious. The house has everything you might need, including a gourmet kitchen, wifi, two TVs with cable, a gas grill, five kayaks, a dingy, life jackets, a pool table, a horseshoe pit outside, and plenty of board games inside, with an upstairs game nook to play them in. And Sebago Lake is just amazing. The water was warm and clear. We could see the bottom even when it was 12 feet deep. We brought a 19-foot boat with an inboard/outboard motor for our trip. And it was easy to keep it at the dock, right outside the house. Water at the dock was 5-6 feet deep. No problems there. Frye Island itself was quaint, almost a throwback to another time. The kids loved playing games at the community center and getting ice cream at Frye's Leap General Store. It is remote; an hour from Portland, including the ferry ride. And that ride is not cheap at $35. We left just once in a week. But mostly we didn't feel the need to leave. This spot was just so relaxing. Bottom line: We loved this house. We'd stay there again. And if you are looking for a reunion home on one of New England's finest lakes, then you will be happy with this house."

  • Great vacation spot

    "The cottage was in great shape and had everything we needed. The location is on Sebago Lake, so there are great swimming and water sports. The island has lots of public beaches, and nice playing fields, tennis courts, etc. Also a small restaurant and store. A great getaway vacation. The roads are small so you can't drive very fast on them, which enhances the relaxing nature of Frye Island. I would caution people that you need to take a quick ferry to and from the island, and if you don't want that kind of encumbrance, you may not want to choose this location."
