Destination guide

Lakeside life for all the family

Sebago Lake offers an unsurpassed outdoor vacation experience for visitors coming to the area. As the 2nd largest, yet deepest, lake in the state of Maine, its numerous water-based activities have made it a firm favorite with local residents and summer vacationers. Whatever your choice of Sebago Lake vacation rental, there will be much to see and do nearby. Most come for the outdoor experience, but the local towns of Raymond, Standish and Naples, as well as the seasonal town of Frye Island, all offer visitors an authentic slice of Maine life.

Things to do

Theme parks and paddle steamers

With such high volumes of visitors, especially in the summer months, Sebago Lake has exciting attractions for young and old alike. If you head out from your Sebago vacation rental to Seacoast Fun Park, you can putt on the impressive 18-hole mini golf course, race around the go karting track and board the bumper boats. For those interested in Americana, a ride aboard the paddle steamer Songo River Queen II is a must. Setting off from Naples, just north of Sebago Lake, the steamer carries up to 350 people and has, among other facilities, a food court and cocktail bar.


Boating, fishing or both?

Sebago Lake State Park covers 1,400 acres of forested land, with public camping alongside cottages and lodges. If you manage to get a Sebago Lake vacation rental, you could take boat rides across the lake from either of the 2 launches or charter a boat for the day. Sailing instruction is also available and is a fun activity for families and friends. For keen fishermen, Sebago Lake is a perfect spot to catch salmon, trout and pike in plentiful numbers. The ‘Sebago to the Sea Trail' is a 28-mile path leading cross-country from the lake to Portland in Casco Bay.


A summer of sun and sport

Maine sees its biggest influx of family vacationers during the summer break months. While the weather can be glorious around this time, Sebago Lake vacation rentals can be tricky to get. If you want to avoid the crowds but enjoy almost as good weather, try the colorful shoulder months. The spring is full of blooming wildflowers while the New England fall foliage bursts into color between September and October. During winter, vacation rental prices nosedive and, if you decide to visit in December or January, you'll most likely have the lake all to yourself.

Natural features

Nature trails par excellence

On the southwest bank of Sebago Lake lies Steep Falls Wildlife Management Area. With numerous waterfalls, woodland trails and footbridges, it's a great place to bring children to see Maine's wildlife. A short drive from your Sebago Lake vacation rental, Steep Falls is a sanctuary of upland forest and wetland critters. Among the numerous bird species, the eagle-eyed can spot hummingbirds at play, herds of deer in the forest and beavers at work on their dam in Rainbow Lake. Just be sure to bring a camera and a good pair of binoculars.
