Why Lisa Morse chose Sebago Lakes Region

We've been renting through VRBO for many years enjoying different lake front homes in Maine until 2012 when we found our perfect 'Little Piece of Heaven' on Watchic Lake. The owners, Patti & Eric, were fantastic and what they did to their little Victorian cottage was priceless. We rented their cottage two years in a row creating some pretty amazing family memories. We often kayaked around the lake admiring the existing camps and promised each other that we'd own one some day. Our 'some day' came sooner than we thought! Our piece of paradise was not so peaceful when we purchased it. It was a very dismal short sale property that had been empty for over 10 years and the lack of maintenance and care was definitely present. After months of going through the waiting game and months of demolition and construction we finally have what we can now call our 'Watchic Paradise'! Welcome to our little Piece of Paradise! We hope you give us the opportunity to make some wonderful family memories.

Lovely Place with all the Amenities of Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely place. The home and grounds were beautiful and clean. The layout was conducive to time together or apart. We had a wonderful stay, and even with seven people, no one felt crowded.

Perfect Family vacation get away

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family vacation here! Truly is a home away from home. The home is beautifully decorated, beds were comfortable and the house had everything that we needed and it was nice having meals at the large table that fit everyone comfortably.

The property was perfect for kids with a great big yard to play in. We had two toddlers and the beach was clean and shallow for them to enjoy hours of fun in the water.

We enjoyed kayak trips especially watching the sunrise and the loons.

The fire pit was nice to unwind from a busy day down at the water to relax and enjoy the quiet nights, the sounds of the loons and the stars.

The owners are friendly and communicated in a timely manner.

We would definitely come back to this paradise!

Lake House

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the Lake House for a mini vacation on July22 and left on Thursday evening of July 24. It's a home away from home. It has all the comforts of home and then some. Quiet evenings by the fire pit found to be very relaxing, after a day at the beach boating, kayaking, floating around on the tubes and swimming. Having coffee out on the deck overlooking the lake and listening to the loons was a plus. Will be going back for sure. We were there with another couple and had friends drop in for dinner and plenty of room for every one to sit comfortably. That's the place to go for some R & R.
