Sebec Lake Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Two cottages, 6 bedrooms 5 full baths, sleeps 14, great for large families

Spectacular sunsets, total privacy, peace and quiet await you at this impressive lakefront property on 10 mile long beautiful Sebec Lake in central Maine. Here you are likely to see moose, deer, and hear the call of loons on our 30 acres and 1000 ft. of bold shore frontage. Spend your days relaxing in the sun, fishing for lake trout and salmon, exploring the lake by boat or kayak, swimming, waterskiing, wakeboarding, hiking, or mountain biking. The cottages are rustic knotty pine with fully applianced kitchens including washer and dryer. A large screened in porch along the west end of the cottages make for incredible sunset dinners. Other features include a gas grill, a campfire pit near the water, and a protected boat dock and swimming area. Boat rentals-Party barge, fishing boats, kayaks, and jet skis are available for rent at nearby marinas.

Other Details: Most of the time, especially summer, people rent both cottages at once. It is great for large families. Plenty of room to spread out. In the summer the main cottage is always required to be rented as part of the rental agreement. In the Spring or Fall periods, the guest cottage can sometimes be rented alone. Never are the cottages rented simultaneously to unrelated parties. The fishing is best in the Spring and Fall. The foliage is spectacular beginning Sept 15-Oct 15. The lake is also very quiet and peaceful during the fall as well. Boat rentals--party barge, kayaks, fishing boats, waterskis and wakeboards are all available at Tim Merrril & Co across the lake in DoverFoxcroft. Water temperature reaches almost 80F degrees in the summer months, so great for water activities. The water is unbelievably clean and clear. Daytime temps in the summer months range from 75-90F, with the evenings 50-70.

Property Overview: This impressive property consists of 30 acres of woods and 1000 feet of bold shore frontage that extends out into the lake,(Canoodlin Point) offering southern exposure (all day sun) with both quiet morning sunrises and truly spectacular sunsets. There is a fire pit out on the point that is perfect for evening campfires under millions of stars while listening to the call of the loons. The photos just can't capture the spectacular setting of the whole thing. Although the cottages are somewhat rustic, they are very comfortable with all the modern conveniences except internet access. There is no air conditioning because it is rarely ever needed. There are ceiling fans in almost all the rooms for the warmest days. The water from the 475 ft well is safe and excellent for drinking.

Other Activities: There are 4 nine hole golf courses within a 25 mile radius. Eighteen hole courses, some very nice about an hour away. There is great fly fishing and whitewater rafting on the Penobscot river 1 1/2 hours away. Shopping and restaurants are in Dover Foxcroft 1/2 hour away. Great hiking can be found at Boarstone Mountain, Baxter State Park, and Gulf Hagus. Also within a half hour are tennis courts and horseback riding. Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor make for a nice day trip from the cottages about 2 hours away.

Autumn at Sebec Lake

Before heading back to Florida, Mom wanted a taste of Fall. We actually got in a last swim on our first day & then we got FALL! The owner helpfully stopped by to make sure the heater was working for us. It was great for hiking and we bundled up for our rides in the rented pontoon boat. It's a great unspoiled lake that we didn't have enough time to explore all of.
The kitchen had everything we needed as we switched to hot apple pies and hot chocolate!
There was plenty of room for everyone, but when it was whittled down to just three at the end, it didn't feel too big either.
Everyone looking forward to a return trip. The plan is to tackle that mountain!

Wonderful Place

My wife, my 12 year old son and I stayed a little over a week at the start of the 2010 season. The entire experience was great. The owners were very accommodating, down to earth, pleasant, and easy to deal with. The property was in excellent shape, and the caretaker was wonderfully attentive. Photos don’t do the place or the surroundings justice. It was our best vacation to date. When it rained, we spent time playing fooseball in the fully screened porch (no bugs—not a one!), and we played cards on the huge table on the screened porch, and in the dining room. We also did the puzzle of Maine that was on the porch. That brings me to our biggest complaint. The puzzle was missing one piece! That’s right, we all compared notes and we have identified that as the biggest problem with our vacation-a missing puzzle piece. That should give you a good idea of how much we enjoyed our stay.
We took turns swinging on the hanging swing on the screened porch which was one of my son’s favorite spots to read. When it wasn’t raining, we were outside doing all kinds of stuff. We fished from the floating dock. Great night fishing when the thin layer of fog blanketed the lake and we heard the distant cries of god knows what from across the lake. You could see so many stars in the night sky. My son caught his first eel, his first catfish, and his first perch. I didn’t get snagged on the bottom while sinker fishing a single time. During the day we rented a pontoon boat from the marina across the lake for a very reasonable price, and that was great fun. My son absolutely loved climbing the rocks along the edge of the lake (we kept him from the water’s edge and there are plenty of huge rocks). We had 2 weenie and marshmallow roasts in the fire pit which was a first for our son. The bugs really weren’t bad, but the cabin was stocked with head nets and plenty of bug spray anyway. It was very private, peaceful, and a wonderful place for us to reconnect as a family. I think my favorite parts were after showers and before bed when we sat in the TV room (with the TV unplugged) and just talked about whatever. No cell phones ringing, no email, no distractions, just the sound of the woods coming in through the open (screened) windows and our own voices. We highly recommend this place for any family that wants (or needs) to spend some time reconnecting!

We stayed the week of 7/11-18/09. Our family was a group of 9 (5 teenage boys) .The home upon arrival was more than what we expected , CLEAN , big , everything and more you could want. The grounds are amazing , sunsets and thunderstorms amazing ! Would recomend to you , but only you , as we dont want too many people to find this gem (LOL).One thing I would recomend is to bring a cooler of food from your favorite big store , as the local grocery store is supplied but limited. Lake is very nice and big and so clean. Have a great week here you will not regret it. Thanks Norm & Terry hope to see you next year
