"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!"
