About Matthew Ames

My grandfather purchased this camp when my dad was 7 years old. They lived here every summer until my dad went away to college. After an extensive renovation my grandparents made this their year round home and have now retired back to their Westbrook home.

Matthew Ames purchased this house in 1968

Why Matthew Ames chose Sebago Lakes Region

After seeing the views and enjoying the property you will understand why our family chose to rent the property rather than sell. How can one sell a piece of heaven? We look forward to many more years of family memories here at the lake including our next generation.

What makes this house unique

The lake is so peaceful and beautiful. Escaping from the real world and reading a book on the hammock is heaven. The kids will say heaven is anytime they are at the lake jumping off the dock while catching the tennis ball, water skiing, tubing or toasting marshmallows with their cousins and friends. Equally as important, our parents can experience family gatherings at the lake enjoying the fruits of their labor. They watch their kids, grandchildren and now their great grandchildren enjoy the same games and activities they once played and loved.

Great house, prime location, excellent host!

  • 5 of 5

We visited with our extended family, 7 people 3 generations. Everyone loved it. The house was nicer and larger than the pictures on VRBO made it seem. (A first in my experience.) This house is comfortable and the design is well thought out. Many places to be, either as a group or for private time. While staying I had some questions. Each time I contacted Matt he responded very quickly with clear answers. We are already planning to return next year.

One of Best Values on Sebago Lake

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this great house on the northwest end of Sebago Lake. In many years visiting the Sebago region, the Ames family have been the most gracious and accommodating renters I have ever encountered. The location is great for swimming, boating, sunbathing, or just sitting on the balcony and enjoying the breeze off the beautiful lake. Whatever your favorite summer activity, this house will accommodate you, and if it doesn't, just let Peter know and he will do his best to fulfill your wishes. We will be taking an alternate vacation in 2017 otherwise I would be putting my deposit down to come back here again next year. Rent is a bit on the pricey side, but it is worth it.

Amazing vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Our week there was awesome, the property is even more impressive in person than it is in pictures. Amazingly clean and they thought of everything we could have possibly needed. We would definitely stay there again if everything fell into place again with the family. This was better than we could have hoped for.

Thanks very much Peter and Matthew!

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

Awesome vacation home on Big Sebago lake... The pictures don't do it justice, the first thing you see when you walk into the house are 2 large sliders which picture-frame a stunning view of the lake. The house is also much larger than you'd expect, you could fit more than 10 people if needed, easily. There's tons of deck space to hang out on and there's a new picnic table that overlooks the lake that you can enjoy lunch/dinner at while staring out at the awesome view. Also...there's a new permanent fire pit that we made good use of, kids loved it. Peter and Matt were great to deal with, they were very accommodating, efficient and professional. Like the title states, I'd highly recommend this home for larger families...hopefully we'll be able to make it back there again next year.

Great. Perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this house and the view. We had 6 teenagers and the downstairs was perfect for them. Lots of different hang out places and room to spread out. The house has everything you need and was super clean. The yard and beach were great. Two boat hook ups plus a great big dock was nice. Public boat launch a few miles away and plenty of parking for cars and boat trailer. I can't say enough about this place, except we will be back next year!! Thanks Peter and Mathew!!

Fabulous house, fabulous owner

  • 5 of 5

I have been vacationing in the Sebago region since I was 4 years old and have stayed in dozens of houses on big Sebago and the surrounding lakes. All factors considered, this may be the best house we have ever rented. The swimming is phenomenal, the view is spectacular and the house is large and well maintained. Having linens provided was a huge plus. The location, just a minute or two off of route 114 - but still very private - was another huge positive. The owners are friendly and helpful and a joy to deal with. When we had extra trash from a family gathering, Peter made a special mid-week trip to take care of it for us. The rent is a bit high compared to similarly sized properties but it was worth every dime! We will definitely be back next summer!
