Beautiful cottage and a great location.

  • 5 of 5

My kids and I had a great time and Rick and Sherry's home in Sebago. Loved the location, easy access to the lake, marina, good bar and restaurant, grocery were right down the road. Neighbors were friendly. Place was beautiful. Rick was very considerate and checked in and called to see how everything was going, and was helpful in giving guidance regarding places to go in the area. Really hope to come back.

Wonderful relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time ever renting a home from home away. I could not be more happy with our experience. Rick met us at the property and went over every detail which was more than helpful. He even left brochures of nearby restaurants and activities in the area. You could tell he was very maticulous with the way he kept his home which made our stay all the more comfortable. It was clean and well kept and had everything we needed to feel comfortable for the week away. My family and I had a wonderful vacation and would love to go back and stay at Rick and Sherry's home again in the future.

Thank you again,

Wards Cove Sebago Lake stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Wards Cove was wonderful! The property was nice, clean and well maintained. The owners Sherry and Rick were very nice people to deal with. The view of the lake from the property was awesome, we hated to leave when our week was over. We love being on the lake so we rented kayaks for the week which is fun. Also enjoyed going to Naples to play mini golf at Steamboat Landing. We would recommend this property to our friends and relatives.

We came back home today from the most relaxing, fun vacation we have had in a while. The day we got there was our 50th wedding anniversary and Rick and Sherry had champayne waiting for us, they are 2 of the nicest people we have met. The home they have made for the lucky people who get to rent is awesome the pictures dont show all the little things they do , the sparkling clean rooms, the sweet smelling linens, hand soaps at each sink, lotions in the bath, I could go on and on.

The only drawback was the beach that is across the road and a short stroll away is very rocky I would advise that you bring old sneakers or water shoes so your entry into the water is easier on the feet.

I am sure that we will be back.

Just Re-Wards house Sebago

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from a fabulous vacation on Sebago. We had 2 adults and 3 16 year olds traveling with us. The house was beautiful and clean upon arrival. The views from kitchen and deck are stunning. There is no direct lake access at house however you can easily walk too water and deeded docks; only takes 2 minutes. The bathrooms and kitchen have all tastefully been updated and decorated. The air conditioner wasn't necessary but available as well as a washer and dryer. It was very nice to have linens provided. The beds were comfortable although one room only has a futon-my kids were fine with that.

There are countless things to do in area from kayak rentals, jer skis and boating. Portland is reasonable drive for a fun night out.

The owners were very timely in response to emails and very accommodating. It Was an absolute pleasure to stay in their home.

One word to decribe this house and the owners--AWESOME. My family and I were honored to be the first renters. We felt at home. Rick and Sherry are two of the nicest people you will ever meet. We felt like we were home and not in a rental. Location is great. Pictures do not do this place justice. We have rented many places and seldom return to the same place. I can honestly say we have found a place we will rent again. Thank you--Rick and Sherry--you did a great job renovating this place into a true home. We will be back for years to come.
