About Kyle

Hi, I am Kyle Rhoads and I usually respond to rental inquiries. The cottage is family-owned with my parents, Cathy and Rich Rhoads, as the caretakers. My wife, Carrie, and my sister, Lynley, often help keep the cottage maintained and cleaned. We are family of educators with my parents both retired educators. I am a Principal of a local elementary school and my sister and wife are both counselors in schools. We love this location for the family memories, the peaceful living and our love for watersports. My Dad loves to fish and often helps renters know where to find the best spots to catch 'the big one' that did not get away!

Kyle purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Kyle chose Sebago Lakes Region

Our family bought the cottage to have a place for present and future generations of our family to relax and enjoy the summer months on the water in Maine. Because of taxes and the mortgage payments, we rent the cottage so we can keep the cottage owned by our family.

What makes this cottage unique

The enclosed porch is a great spot to sip coffee and read a book without the worry of a mosquito! The natural smell of pine needles helps you relax and remember the true beauty of the Maine landscape. The cottage is well-maintained and kept clean but the interior makes you feel that you went back in time!

QUIET True Maine Place!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed here several times and truly enjoy the cabin. It is very well made up and has a wonderful screeened porch to enjoy the cool night air without the bugs. Kyle is a great host and very friendly. They are pet friendly and my pet loved it here. The cabin has everything you need, just bring sheets and your clothing and food. I would definately come back!

Just the place you need to unwind!

  • 5 of 5

Kyle and his family were very friendly and accomodating. Cottage is nestled in a grove of tall pines and is very quiet at night. Although there are cottages close by we were never disturbed. It is very close by to nearby towns and Sebago Lake. It's a beautiful part of Maine to visit and this cottage was an affordable getaway for us and our two dogs! Thanks again!

Relaxing and enjoyable get away

  • 4 of 5

Very peaceful, relaxing get away on the Crooked River. The cabin has everything you need. Best for a rustic, low key vacation with great access to the water and the many connecting lakes.

this property is just about perfect.

  • 5 of 5

The owners are great. Helpful with information , and always available if you need them. The river sis beautiful,and great for swimming, boating and fishing, and you can get down river right into Sebago Lake,though we found the river more relaxing.

I really can't think of anything that the Rhoads Family didn't think of.

In short this place is relaxation personified.

Absolutely beautiful spot.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage had the exact rustic feel I was looking for, from the wood walls to the smell. I loved it. There is lots of room and had all the comforts you need. Kyle and his family were friendly and quickly responded to our needs when necessary. I highly recommend.

Camp was unique in a charming way. In a beautiful spot with all comforts of home and more!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying due to a place with Poor communication we were left stranded with two dogs a packed truck and nowhere to go on the eve of my husbands 51st b-day. KYLE AT THE VERY LAST MINUTE saved us and my husbands surprise. We were in touch recently before that day and he accommadated us. AND THE STAY WAS WONDERFUL. Our favorite part was our dogs and us on the canoe. You wont be sorry renting from this wonderful family. And we will be back😊?
