A beautiful and spacious lodging for family and friends.

  • 5 of 5

Because I had never arranged a stay in such a spacious cottage before, I had no idea what to expect for my family and I,

as I planned our surprise 40th Wedding Anniversary weekend. I needn't have worried. The layout of cottage and its grounds was everything I had hoped for, and more. The peacefulness and beauty of this place, and the welcoming attitude of our host, Steve, made this event so memorable. We are already talking of returning.

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Took me a while to write this review, but now that I'm looking for a rental for this summer I'm remembering how amazing this house was. Private and spacious, it fit our family & friends perfectly, allowing everyone to have their own space as well as bond together in the family room/outside. The water area is wonderful as well. Thank you!

Wonderful home with amazing lake access!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The home was very welcoming and we were all very comfortable here. The best part is the private beach with a dock and kayaks to take out on the lake. I very much recommend this place!

Fantastic vacation rental on Sebago Lake!

  • 5 of 5

The description of this property was very accurate regarding the location, layout and all the amenities! The privacy of the lot was fantastic! The lot is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! The firepit and all the chairs provided were also a delight to use in the evening hours. Location to local stores was also very convenient. We loved the large open room on the second floor as well as the bathroom. Great extra space! The 2 patio tables came in very handy, and the deck was a terrific extension to the house! We used it with much delight. We loved the ability to put the air conditioners on when and if we needed them.....a big plus. We also loved the fact that we could bring the pets too. We would definitely recomment this vacation home!! Thank you to the Cowan family!!!

An excellent "home away"!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more comfortable or pleased with our "home away" from home. The house had everything we needed to relax and re-energize. A clear, unobstructed view of Sebago Lake was as calming as we wanted it to be or inticing us to swim, kayak or sunbathe.

Steve Cowan was excellent with answering any and all questions we asked of him.

Our choice was to stay on the property and enjoy everything the lake had to offer. We did, however, buy seafood from Fisherman's Catch" only minutes down the road for my family's annual seafood feast!

We highly recommend this retreat and guarantee you will not be disappointed!
