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!

The camp has deeded rights to the 'shores of Sebago Lake.' It is less than 140 foot walk to the sandy beach which is visible from the main cabin porch. 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!

A wonderful family friendly home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I grew up in Windham. We were so happy when we found your home online. We had been searching for a long time to find a location on the lake that would accommodate our own family (we have three children) as well as visits from our large family and close friends. Your home allowed us to enjoy every moment during our stay at the lake,l. We had several generations gathered around the fire pit almost every evening. Even on the rainy days we loved spending time together in the main house. Thank you so much for providing everything that we needed to make our visit enjoyable, and truly hassle free!

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 Vacation on Sebago Lake Basin

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our vacation at the Gene's property..great place to spend a week. Close to swimming area for the kids . Cottages very neat and clean. Nice fire-pit to sit around at night and roast marshmallows.. I would highly recommend this rental . You also have Patrick who is the caretaker. He is very helpful with all your questions, and is there whenever you call. Cutos to Patrick.

And the owner is also very much interested in your stay, calling to see if anything is needed. Great time....

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.
