The cabins have been fully modernized and were renovated in 2012. This location represents the closest point to Portland's downtown and travel centers on Sebago Lake.

It is a wonderful family location. Nearby for rainy days are movie theaters and on sunny days adventurous activities from hiking to swimming to boating and the amusement parks. For parents, the cabins are nearby the JCC day camp.Maybe a little bit more of a vacation for you?

The guest cabins can be used for a separate family or as a bunk house for the kids.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This home on Sebago Lake not only has three bedrooms, a kitchen, bathroom with shower, living/dining combination, and a deck shaded by trees, it has a one-bedroom guest house. It’s a perfect combination for a couple with children who want to include their parents or in-laws. The home is modernized, spacious, and streamlined with everything you need (including washer/dryer, charcoal grill, canoe). The beach is within a short walking distance and is private, peaceful, and gorgeous. It doesn’t get much better than this!

Great family retreat!

  • 5 of 5
We visited from Texas. This property was a great retreat from the August heat. There are three very comfortable and well appointed buildings on the property. All are situated under old growth pines surrounded by maples, oaks, etc, the lake just a few steps away. There is a great beach which was very private. Often times we were the only ones there! The cabins are incredibly equipped, complete with incredibly high speed wireless that was also enjoyed all the way down on the beach. Other amenities that can be enjoyed include a huge fire pit for memorable evenings sitting around a fire, starry night skies, the call of loons coming off the lake, fishing, boating, and swimming. While there you get the feel of a very secluded and remote location, however a full service supermarket and Walmart is just some 5 or 6 minutes away. As well a number of restaurants featuring the best of seafood that Maine is famous for can be found within a short 10 to 15 minute drive. Even so you'll most likely never want to leave the serenity and comfort of the property. As for the cabins, all are very comfortable and accommodating. The main cabin can easily sleep 7 or 8, while the smaller cabins can sleep up to 5 or 6 adults and children. Scott, the owner also checked with us to make sure all our needs we're satisfied. I highly recommend this location as your next vacation destination! Thank you Scott!!!

Great Property in Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5
This property has three separate units equipped with their own bathrooms and living areas including TVs, perfect for providing a little privacy during a multi-family visit. With the peace and quiet here, you wouldn't know that you were only two minutes from the bustle of Route 302. The property is a 30-second walk from a very nice beach. The owner and property manager are extremely attentive and keep the property in excellent working order, assuring your stay will be a wonderful one.

First Stay at Gene's Lodge

First Stay at Gene's Lodge
  • 5 of 5
This was the first stay at Gene's Lodge for our family. There were 8 of us all together. All adults and still plenty of room. Shortly after picking up the keys, Patrick met us at the property and showed us around-made sure we had what we needed and checked in with us during our stay - as did Scott. It was great to have access to a boat ramp pretty much next door. A short walk down the path was the association beach where we spent the majority of our days. We had wonderful weather all week. One evening of rain but we all were able to fit comfortably in the main cabin and play cards. We used the outdoor fire pit every night except the night it rained. Everyone enjoyed sitting around it and making smores! Well equipped with all your needs for cooking and eating (pans, plates, silverware). Clean cabins-a few spiders and cobwebs, but would expect that in a lake side cabin. Great grill-we cooked out almost every meal. Linens, pillows, blankets and towels all there. Walmart and Shaw's around the corner. Thanks for making our family vacation one of the best we have had. We will definitely be back! Cheryl from Mass.

Our family had such a lovely time at your compound

  • 4 of 5
This property fits out families need so well. With older "adult" children needing their space, the separate lodging works best. The camps were clean and tended to. Our only recommendations would better bedding/mattresses and a more convenient method of getting the key, ( especially since the key is unnecessary). The drive to and from Krainin real estate can take an hour up and back due to heavy traffic. Thank you for having us as renters. Our children look forward to this ALL year long!!

Owner's Response: We'll work with Krainin to devise a better method for checking in next year. Also, we have 4" memory foam mattress pad liners available upon request. Many guests do not prefer these so we keep them in our storage area. We hope to see you next year. Thank you for your business!

Great family holiday!

  • 5 of 5
This is our third year renting from Scott and each year gets better, our children and our grandchildren are growing up with many wonderful memories of being together as a family at camp. We love the beach, the cabins and how close is it for anything you could want that you forgot! We had beautiful weather, fun filled days on the beach & tubing and winding down by the campfire! Thanks Scott for sharing your cabins with us!!

There are no houses between the main cabin and the lake. Renters have access to the boat ramp and a mooring is available. All cabins have undergone extensive modernizing with new roofs, decks, windows, carpets, tile, etc. New furniture and other modern amenities have been added. The location is about 20 minutes from Portland. It is a perfect summer retreat. Features to keep you connected with the ongoing world include cable and high speed wireless internet. A new firepit was added Summer 2012. There are chairs nearby to enjoy an evening by the fire. An optional back up generator (pull start) is available upon request. Amazing afternoon sunsets with unobstructed, natural western view of the west shore of the Sebago Lake Basin!
