About the property

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 9

Incredible family home with private frontage directly on peaceful, relaxing, crystal clear Thomas Pond in South Casco, Maine. Many great amenities, including large deck overlooking the yard and an oversized dock for swimming, relaxing, or launching your canoe or kayak! (Rental includes the use of two single kayaks. Larger boats that you bring or rent locally may be launched from the private association boat launch right down the road.) Southern exposure provides all day sun, or retreat to the shade and privacy of the nicely landscaped, level back yard.

Wonderful large open concept main living area with stunning views of the lake afforded by an entire wall of windows/glass doors. Cable TV, DVD player, wireless internet, and plenty of comfortable seating for the entire family. Washer/Dryer located on main floor and Central A/C and heat throughout the home. Fully stocked kitchen with granite counters, gas range, and dishwasher. Propane BBQ grill on deck and firepit in back yard.

Plenty of space to accommodate extended families or friends! Four bedrooms upstairs with beds for 9 people (1 King, 2 Queen, 3 Twin). Two full bathrooms (one upstairs with shower and bathtub, one downstairs with shower).

Quiet, peaceful, secluded setting nestled in the trees with abundant nature and nearby hiking opportunities, the house is located on a dead-end, private association road, yet is also very convenient to local shopping, restaurants, golfing, and entertainment/attractions (less than 15 minutes away) and less than 45 minutes to Portland and Freeport for even more opportunities for fun and adventures! Also a great base for winter activities, including snowshoeing/cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, and downhill skiing -- approx. 30 minutes to Shawnee Peak Ski Area and about an hour to Sunday River Ski Resort!

Book now and look forward to creating lasting memories with your family and friends!

****Notes: Please contact owner for pre-screening prior to requesting a booking. Online booking/payment option is available upon request, with a signed rental agreement. Stays shorter than one week (minimum 4 nights) may be possible, subject to availability, except during peak summer periods. Thanks for your interest!****

The property was just as described. The lake house clean and set up nicely for entertaining.

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Todd, was pleasant to work with and very responsive to any questions we had. There wasn't anything we needed. Thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful lake and lake home.

perfect for us....

  • 5 of 5

We commend Todd for the accuracy of the information in the listing for this lake front home. After a really nice two week stay here, we can affirm that he didn’t leave anything important out, either. Thanks!

Everything works! A/C, heat (on few nippy mornings!), stove, d/w, central vac, fridge, grill, etc. Ample hot water for four adult showers in an hour, but don’t expect that result if you do three loads of laundry before starting! Good water pressure.

Plenty of cooking/eating supplies, cups/plates, utensils. Paper goods, too.

Pictures accurately show open first floor plan, plenty of comfy seating, plenty of room at the table and a generous kitchen. Wall of glass lake views, too! Comfortable beds/mattresses in the three BRs we used.

In early summer, the deck and the dock get the morning sun about 7:30, perfect for morning coffee! Plenty of comfortable seating in both locations.

Swam and used the kayaks from the dock. About 5 feet deep off the end to mostly rocky bottom. Works just fine for the kids, and for adults to cool off. Sebago has three sandy beaches within 10-20 minutes, each with fees – Nason’s, Tasseltop and the State Park.

House sits on a dead end street. Speed limit of 15 is respected! Quiet, yet friendly neighbors and neighborhood.

It’s about 15 minutes from the house to Naples or North Windham – barring traffic delays. Downtown Portland is usually less than an hour. Great golf within 10 minutes. Watercraft rentals everywhere.

This is a very nicely maintained, furnished and appointed home in a really nice location. For us, it was just about perfect.

The house was clean when we arrived. We made sure that it was at least as clean when we left. Todd e-mailed us the next day to compliment us on the job we’d done. We’ve left the many homes we’ve rented over the years at least as nice as we found them, but Todd is the first to acknowledge our efforts. Thanks, Todd!

Excellent Home and Lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Thomas Pond. The house is very clean and nicely updated and decorated. The property and lake are amazing. We had a small issue when we blew a fuse, and Todd was very helpful and had it fixed very quickly. All in all it was a great vacation. We definitely will rent this home again.

We would recommend this to anyone who is interested in booking this property. It is fully equipped with everything you would need for a great vacation. The décor is beautiful and so is the view. We were very Happy. Very clean and well maintained. The owner was very accommodating to any questions we had.

Nice week on the pond

  • 5 of 5

The listing description was accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, etc. The property was clean and well-maintained. The house is very quiet, but there are also a nice range of activities (water sports, hiking, lake beach, etc) and local restaurants near by. We hope to return next summer!

Great Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home on Thomas Pond for a week and we were not disappointed. Our group ranged in age from 81 yrs to 2 yrs old. We did experience an issue with the AC during our stay but Todd worked with us until it was back up and running (which we only needed a few times during our stay). We hope to revisit this spot in years to come.
