About John McKenna/Andrea McKenna

John bought the lodge as a Bed & Breakfast in August of 2001 and got engaged to Andrea the next year. The first year they ran the bed and breakfast while taking bookings and commuting from Ma. Then our first child was born in 2003, Kylie and from then on they began full week rentals, year round by turning the lodge over to larger groups and the extended family, sleeping up to 15 persons. John continues to be a full time police officer in Reading, Ma. while Andrea practices her trade of hair dressing and raises their 3 charming little girls. The snack bar is open from Memorial day to just after Labor day and run by 'Missy' a Naples resident and a great short order cook, selling tasty sanwiches ice cream and cold beverages.

John McKenna/Andrea McKenna purchased this house in 2001

Why John McKenna/Andrea McKenna chose Naples

John was attracted to the property because he vacationed at the Sebago State park grounds as a youngster with his parents and 4 brothers and sister. The memories were permanently engraved as kids and the beauty of the area has not changed much. John and Andrea enjoy having the extended family get together and reminis about the old days of camping at Sebago Lake and Brandy Pond.

What makes this house unique

This lodge is ideal for the larger group of professionals for business retreats or festivities and the extended family right down to the grandkids. Everyone can find something unique to do that fits their personality, from swimming, canoeing, relaxing in the hammock, watching the boats go by or just finding a private place to read, nap or relax. There is always a ping pong game challenge going on in the 2nd floor screened in game room. The winters are picturesque and serene. Again a place of peace and tranquility. You can also choose to find any number of winter sports such as skiing, tubing, snow shoeing, or other favorite winter past times. The lodege has been modernized with new carpet, wood floors, windows and general interior improvements. The exterior was professionally landscaped and a beautiful brick patio was added in 2009. We have planned on pasing the lodge down to the next generation, so the improvements will continue as needed and as funds permit.

This is a beautiful lodge for any larger group to create some fond and lasting memories.

Great place for a family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

From the start, the owners were friendly and helpful to assist in planning the vacation. They were eager to share their knowledge of the area and help you find closest grocery stores and area activities. When we arrive we found the lodge to be very clean and welcoming. There are lots of activities for all age groups (our family consisted of ages 4 – 85 years old). We held card and ping pong tournaments , canoe the river, swim off the dock, fishing, bike riding and relaxing around the great fire pit roasting marshmallows. The place is large enough that if you wanted to just relax and read a book, you are sure to find a quiet place. I recommend this place to anyone!!!

GREAT VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5

we were nervous renting a home without seeing it first but we were pleasantly surprised. the lodge is very nice and big enough for the 13 of us! Not only was there plenty of space but everything you could need is there. The house is on the river but the Sebago state park is right down the street. the dock is lovely to sit out on and watch the boats go by. catch some rays, read a book or enjoy a cocktail! the canoes were great for getting around on the water. we enjoyed the fire pit almost every night! Loved the antique stores everywhere and the closeness of any kind of store you need. would recommend to large families or a group of friends. if you have a boat it would be perfect!
