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

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.

An Overall Pleasure!

  • 4 of 5

We brought 2 couples with 2 kids each Kids ranged in age from young middle to senior middle schoolers and one high schooler. Plus a dog. Everyone had a blast. There is so much to do. You never have to leave the property. Great beach to relax or kayak for a little adventure. Nice dock to swim to. Moorings and dingy if you brought boat, like we did. Also beautiful sunsets. We highly recommend it and we have stayed at many spots on the lake.

Great place for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in as many summers. So nice to stay in a place that is clearly a family treasure, not just a rental. We are already planning our return in 2019.

Thank you, Peter and Matt!

Very nice property

  • 4 of 5

Very nice location. Owner very helpful. Very good experience but would certainly have preferred a TV in living area rather than in a bedroom. Great to have fire pit, swim float, tubes, kayak and beach. Quiet location.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you had a great stay! Having 2 living rooms, we have always designated the upstairs great room as a room to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet while overlooking the amazing lake views. However, the living room downstairs has two couches, the bar and a flat screen TV with cable and a DVD player! If you plan on making the trip again next year we'll guarantee a large flat screen TV in the upstairs living room for you! Let us know, it'd be our pleasure!

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!
