CLEAN COTTAGE ON BEAUTIFUL SEBAGO LAKE

PLEASE SEE SIXTY-NINE GUESTBOOK COMMENTS - STAY ON OVERVIEW PAGE - scroll down, and on left-hand side CLICK-ON 'About Marian'. Then click on GUEST BOOK COMMENTS FROM THE OWNER.

Welcome to the great state of Maine! Will Rogers once remarked 'Did you ever see a place that looked like it was built to enjoy?' That's how Maine looks. It's the beautiful scenery, the fresh air, wilderness, friendly people and pristine bodies of water. Our cottage is located directly on Sebago Lake, the seventh cleanest body of water in the world. You can fish for trout, bass, and salmon from our dock or take the rowboat and explore the lake. The gentle sloping acre of land and lovely gardens provide an ideal spot. On a clear day, out on the lake, you can see the White Mountains in New Hampshire. Sit on the porch or on comfortable rockers and watch the bald eagle, humming birds, loons, and ducks pass bye. Swim from the dock or sandy beach and enjoy a cookout at the beach. Our cottage is located ideally for day trips to picturesque light houses, L.L. Bean and Freeport, North Conway, and Kittery shopping outlets, fabulous dining in Portland, (one of the ten best cities in the USA for restaurants), island boat trips, entertainment, and so much more. Just let us know what your interests are and we will provide information and a calendar of events. Maine is truly a scenic wonder. We are taking reservations from April to November 2015, and we'd love to have you spend some time enjoying the natural splendor of Maine.

MAINE IS SPECTACULAR!

Sebago Lake is one of the cleanest bodies of water in the world. Sebago Lake is a large open lake, and the water is so clean that it provides the drinking water for Portland.The cottage is located on an acre of grassy land that slopes to a sandy beach and incredible mountain views.

It is CENTRALLY LOCATED in a quiet, upscale neighborhood, yet minutes away from shopping, activities, and restaurants. Your may bring or rent a boat and moor it on the mooring ball, or use the canoe. AT NIGHT, ALL WATER CRAFT MUST BE ON THE MOORING BALL OR BEACHED. If you like to fish, there is plenty of salmon, bass, and trout. Watch and listen to the loons from the comfortable rockers overlooking lovely perennial gardens. The cottage is attractively decorated, spotless, and completely furnished.

We consider this location on Big Sebago Lake as 'Paradise', which is why our home is located next door.

Please read the many reviews by guests who have stayed at the cottage.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Marian and Bob - Thank you for making this heavenly secluded spot so perfect. It is like "On Golden Pond" even with loons on the lake. We enjoyed so many sunny days sitting by the lake, as well as watching the foliage grow more colorful each day as we drove around the area. We enjoyed fresh steamed lobsters three times - Hannaford's is a great place to get whatever size you want. Had delicious sweet Italian Sausage from the Butcher next to the laundromat. Ate haddock chowder and sweet treats and great quiche from Chipman's (farm), as well as sandwiches from the Good Life (market). Ate twice at Black Bear Tavern in Naples - great Shepherd's Pie - and a good steak at Rustler's. Loved the play in Qgunquit (playhouse), the Portland Museum of Art, and shopping in Freeport.



One of the most unique memories will be the sound of acorns falling on the roof! This cottage is homey and fully equipped. You have thought of everything - including pie and wine! Thank you to both of you.

Happy Family of Five

  • 5 of 5
In July of 2014, my husband, three children and I spent an absolutely perfect week at this beautiful lakefront cottage. It is one of the most picturesque properties on Sebago Lake. It is surrounded by multimillion-dollar homes on a quiet dead end road. The cottage is immaculate and is perfectly maintained. The property has it own private beach where we played, read and watched the sunset. It also has a dock where we tied the boat we rented from a local marina. Each day we could walk out our front door one minute and be driving off for a day of skiing the next. The owners are always available to answer questions and to make you feel at home. I would absolutely recommend this lovely cottage to a couple or a family. I know many people come back year after year and make this beautiful stop a family tradition. It tends to fill up quickly, so if you want a perfect week on Sebago Lake, I wouldn’t wait too long to make a reservation.

Owner's Response: We enjoyed having you and your family stay at our cottage. The children told us that they enjoyed the boat trips and surfing on the doughnut. Even on rainy days they enjoyed being in the loft reading or watching the many channels. I remarked to your oldest daughter that we once had a family who was checking out Saturday morning, car packed and the engine running. The kids were still up in the loft reluctant to depart. Bob and I also enjoyed your stopping on your way to visit some college. Our grand-kids enjoyed seeing your daughter's fabulous art portfolio. She motivated one of our young grand daughters to continue her passion for drawing. We hope you and your family stop in any time you are in Maine.

Perfect cottage for nearly 20 years!

  • 5 of 5
We have enjoyed this wonderful Deep Cove cottage for probably 20 years, and have never had anything but a FABULOUS experience. From the quality furniture and window treatments, to the well appointed kitchen, to the cable and Internet, to the welcome gifts, including a home-made blueberry pie and ice cream, this is a great place for a relaxing lake vacation. The location is wonderful and the views are lovely. We kayak, swim and enjoy the outdoor gas grill too. The owners are attentive but never intrusive, and they have become personal friends over the years. We used to live in Chicago, and this experience helped us to decide to move to Maine. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Dear Carolyn and Paul,
We have so much enjoyed welcoming you folks for so many years. Just as you look forward to your stay in Maine, we look forward to your arrival. You have shared with us the places and restaurants you always visit, but we haven't yet eaten at Moody's. Sometimes our guests leave a small gift for the next renters like apple butter or local fruits, but your CD of concerts which you attended has been shared with so many guests. One guest mentioned enjoying the sounds of the loons and listening to your CD. Thank you for sharing.

SUPER!!

  • 5 of 5
We had another completely perfect week of nothing to do but relax and do just what we wanted and when we wanted. Your cottage is always a pleasure, so carefully kept and full of welcoming flowers inside and out, and the lovely view down Jordan Bay never changes.

As we’ve told you over the years we’ve enjoyed our stay in your cottage (eleven now?), we felt so lucky to have found your lovely spot just a short walk from the familiar spot where my family had their retirement home they shared with THEIR kids and grandkids on summer vacations when Deep Cove Rd. and Jordan Bay were all those years younger. Now the first thing OUR grandchildren do before their first swim when they stay with us is to take a paddle to see what Nana and Poppie’s old place looks like today to compare with the tales they’ve heard.

Things always change yet remain much the same. We love our week of paddling the shores around Jordan Bay and walks along the familiar roads of Sebago--always make us sad to leave but are filled, as well, with happy and fun that will last all year.

We can’t thank you enough--a delightful stay.

Owner's Response: When we first met you folks you shared that you loved our cottage because it was so close to your childhood home. We have enjoyed your stories and photographs of what the cottage and surroundings looked like so many years ago. It has been fun to see your grandsons grow over the years, and to see them enjoy swimming and boating just as you did as a child. It is amazing how each generation is able to appreciate Sebago Lake for its scenic beauty, clean water, and recreation. We look forward to seeing you and your family each year. Bob and Marian

Warm, charming, and a great place for grandchildren!!!

  • 5 of 5
Dear Bob and Marian. Here we are back home again and missing the lakefront view we so enjoyed for a week!!! Our granddaughters thoroughly enjoyed swimming and fishing and the loft was a BIG hit. Your warm welcome made us feel right at home and the pie and ice cream was much appreciated, as was the gift of bath items. You go out of your way to make renting your cottage a wonderful experience. We will remember our stay with fond memories. Wishing you the best.

Owner's Response: Dear Chris and Ralph,
We are so pleased you and your family had an opportunity to enjoy the beauty of Sebago Lake. Our young guests love the loft. It has its own unique character. For us, it's fun to observe how the children of returning families have grown over the years, and yet always find something to do at the lake. They start out with sand pails on the beach and several years later we see them boating, water skiing, and fishing. Our family has enjoyed this piece of paradise for years, and we are so pleased to have had the opportunity to share it with you folks. Best wishes, Marian and Bob

Great owners, great cottage, great view!

  • 5 of 5
I will keep this short: owners are great and went out of their way to make us feel at home. The lake and its' views are gorgeous. The yard is huge. The cottage, although small, is cozy and inviting. If you have kids (especially younger ones), they will LOVE the loft! It has everything you need (appliances, entertainment, dishes, phone, internet, etc). Perfect for family vacation. Only 12 min from St. Joseph's College. Restaurants, laundry, and shopping are within 7-10 minutes. Just 40 min to Portland and 60 min to Brunswick.Overall, we loved everything and plan to return! Thanks!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments. We are always so pleased that our guests enjoy the beauty of Maine, Sebago Lake, and have the opportunity to relax and have an enjoyable time at the cottage. Indeed, the cottage's loft is a special place for kids and adults. Several summers ago we had a family from San Diego, CA, and the parents had to be very persuasive to get the kids to come down.
