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!

The cabin is perfect for anyone wanting to get away for a while! Kyle and his parents were very helpful throughout the whole process. The kitchen has almost everything you need, and the house was immaculate when we arrived. Would definitely come back!

A great place to kick back and relax

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a relaxing place to go on vacation and we found it. The cabin is very cute and loved the enclosed front porch, a great place to have morning coffee. We were able to take our dogs and that was a plus for us. Not too far the town and only a 45 minute to the city of Portland where we had a great boat ride. All in all a great place to vacation!

This is the Real Deal for a Maine cottage

  • 5 of 5

The "real deal" in a true Maine cottage experience. Location is excellent....on a quiet wooded oversize lot, over looking the Crooked River and conveniently located ...very short drive into town. The cottage was extremely clean, well appointed and exactly as described on the rental site. Comfortable, cozy, and

rustic with charm. I personally enjoyed the screened porch...it was my first choice for sleeping /bedroom area and a great place to enjoy morning coffee or evening conversation.

I love to cook and found the kitchen well stocked. I do bring with me special knives, favorite spices and particular cookware that I know I will use. All basic cookware and utensils are supplied and in good repair.

We had some "senior" relatives join us and as they were in the first floor bedroom, quite easy to navigate and easy access to bathroom. The upstairs bedrooms could be challenging to a senior due to the rather steep stairs however not an issue for active adults or kids.

This cottage surely exceeded my expectations and the owners were extremely responsive and helpful when booking the rental and during the stay offered many times to "be available" should we have any questions or concerns. Easy access to wi fi a plus!

We did encounter some fairly heavy rain while at the cottage and the local "road crew" were extremely prompt to ensure the road was "groomed" to eliminate ruts or rough spots.

You cannot beat this wonderful cottage at the perfect Maine / Sebago Lake Region.

Thank you so much to the Rhoads Family for sharing your home with others. Will definitely rent again if in that area.

The "real deal" for a Maine cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, quaint and very comfortable cottage set in an outstanding setting. The owners are some of the most responsive, helpful and welcoming I have ever dealt with and I rent from VRBO and other sites on. A regular basis.

The cottage was spotlessly clean upon arrival with more than usual thoughtful touches especially in the kitchen area. The setting on the Crooked River - perfect. I personally enjoyed sleeping on the screened porch the whole week...great experience.

Although we visited a bit before "tourist season" most restaurants and sights were open...some on a limited schedule. Park is close by and very convenient, going to one of the few remaing manual locks in Maine a great outing.

If you are looking for a local pub/restaurant, Bray's Brew Pub offers wonderful local craft beer and a nice menu selection. Dinner at Merceds was a lovely evening with truly outstanding food...the Haddock dinner definitely five star. For a casual bite to eat check out the pizza at the Umbrella Factory Grocery store. The grocery store was a very pleasant surprise offering just about everything you find at a Hannaford store in larger cities.

Quiet setting, eat in or dine out - lots of small towns to explore in the area. You will not be disappointed with this rental. Thank you Rhoads Family!

The cottage is approximately a 2 hour drive from Boston. The cottage is a 30 minute drive to Pleasant Mountain, 45 minute drive to the ocean and an hour drive to Sunday River Mountain.

If the week you want is unavailable, please inquire about the sister property.
