Sebago Cottage Rental Photos and Description

- 8 bedrooms - Sleeps 16

Newly renovated - large gracious rooms - 600 acres of private trails, hayfields, gardens, orchard and blueberries adjacent to Douglas Hill (highest point in Cumberland County). Beautiful views! It is very private...surrounded by a large lawn. Hayfields and forests beyond the lawn.

The cottage was an annex to a 19th Century Inn. On February 15, 2005 this Victorian Cottage named 'Dyke Mountain Annex' was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

This property is perfect for family reunions.: Many families have returned year after year. Not only is the property half way between North Conway, New Hampshire & Portland, Maine but also the immediate region has many activities: swimming, boating, hiking, golf, antiques, summer theater, music, etc.

There are 4 large bedrooms on the 2nd floor & 4 on the 3rd floor and a full bath on each floor. .

About Martha Timothy

My father bought this property as a vacation spot. The property includes 600 acres, a large Victorian cottage, and an early 19th Century farmhouse with a connecting barn. In the summer my husband, a retired surgeon, & I live in the farmhouse. We rent out the 8 bedroom cottage.

I grew up in Portland, Maine. I have a Masters in Theological Studies & would love to have the cottage used as a retreat. There is a beautiful private meditation hideaway included.


Martha Timothy purchased this cottage in 1952

Why Martha Timothy chose Sebago Lakes Region

The property is very beautiful and secluded yet near many activities. It is a fabulous location.

What makes this cottage unique

Dyke Mountain is a section of the Saddleback Range which is part of the foothills to the White Mountains in New Hampshire. Guests at the cottage are invited to pick flowers, herbs, and vegetables from the gardens and strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries from the fields. The wild flora & fauna are abundant & varied.

Peaceful, restorative idyll in a special place

  • 5 of 5

My family loves this magical, quiet house in a green corner of Maine, close to lakes and ponds, hiking trails, rivers to canoe or kayak, and great antiquing, with a hill full of blueberries to pick in season. The large kitchen is perfect for family gatherings as meals are prepared. The dining room table expands to seat quite a large party. The fireplace is often the focus after dinner. And then outside a sky full of stars, and even shooting stars if we are lucky. We always rejoice to arrive here again, and leave at the end of our visit rested and renewed. We feel very lucky to have found this summer treasure.

If hotel-grade facilities and cookie-cutter furnishings are your cup of tea, this is probably not for you, but you are missing out. A big, rambling place high on a hill with room for lots of friends and family (and the occasional spider) is the perfect place for our type of low key vacation: badminton, reading, grilling on the porch, day trips, lake swimming. Equidistant from Conway and Portland. Friendly owners.

Wonderful, quirky, BIG house--lovely hosts!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed many summers now at this place--it's just so charming, perfect for a big group and for people who are looking for something very special rather than a week at the holiday inn. Staying at the Dyke Mountain Annex is kind of like living for a week in a museum! It's quiet and serene--but also comfortable and not too far away from towns and grocery stores and attractions. Definitely have Martha show you the path from the cottage to the top of Douglas Mountain--it's a fantastic little hike.
