Enjoy a 5-star vacation home and your favorite freshwater activities - swimming, kayaking, fishing off the dock, or just sitting by the water. Our dock can handle large boats, and if you don't have one to bring, a rental boat can be delivered to Little Sebago so you can enjoy lake cruising, water skiing and boarding, tubing, and fishing.
In terms of location, the property is less than 20 minutes from a commercial area with numerous restaurants, the beautiful Spring Meadows Golf Course, Seacoast Adventure (mini-golf, aerial, games, rides, and restaurant with music on weekends), a good lobster pound, and a relaxing spa. And it's less than 40 minutes to Freeport and Portland for great dining, shopping, and cultural experiences.
The fall is a great time of year to be at the lake with apple picking, hayrides, nature walks, and a great foliage season. Rattlesnake Mountain is 30 minutes away and has beautiful hiking (and no rattlesnakes). During the winter months, snowmobiling, ice fishing, cross-country-skiing, snowshoeing, and ice-skating (if the conditions are right) are all available out the front door, and we are within reasonable driving distance of some great downhill skiing.
The home (we call it “The Lakehouse”) sits close to the water and features a large dock, float, two kayaks for your use, and a private sand and pebble beach with a very gradual descent into Little Sebago’s great water. The lower level walks out to a large flat grassy area, ideal for sunbathing and lake-watching. The home was completely rebuilt in 2009, and it’s been a great place our family and many others since then.
The property has beautiful landscaping and mature trees. The waterside of the property has an outside stairway with a stainless handrail that winds down from the main level to the waterfront. At the water there is an ideal spot to spend time, lounging or lake-watching. Nearby is an extra-large dock, a storage cubby holding life jackets and paddles, and two sit-on-top kayaks (one double and one single), and nice small-pebble beach with a very gradual descent into the great water of Little Sebago Lake. A float completes the waterfront, and the swimming is excellent in both directions.
The main level of the Lakehouse features a large great room with big windows on three sides that enable nice summer breezes and provide an unparalleled view of the lake. (And there is a retractable awning to provide shade when needed, and a propane fireplace for chilly nights.) Also on the main level is a modern kitchen designed for multiple users, a full bath, and a bedroom with a Queen bed and a beautiful view of the lake. The lower level includes two additional bedrooms with Queen beds and nice views of the lake, and a fourth bedroom with a Queen sleeper sofa, two partially elevated Twins, a good-sized wall-mounted TV, and a view of the sandy beach. All four bedrooms have built-in cabinetry for storage, and there are wood floors throughout. Also on the lower level is a compartmentalized bathroom - one room has a sink and long countertop plus a stacked full-size laundry set, a second room has a toilet, and a third room has a tub/shower and another sink with long countertop.
The view of the lake from the home is to the west, so there are fabulous sunsets. The home sits on a peninsula on the southeast edge of Little Sebago Lake’s large central basin and close to Spider Island. The top part of the driveway is paved and is fine for parking for up to 4 vehicles. From there, the driveway slopes down toward the Lakehouse, where there is parking for up to 4 more vehicles nearer the home. Parking is not allowed alongside Qualey Road. The driveway, which slopes down from the road toward the home, is paved, and there is abundant parking. You can walk from the parking area to the home entrance (and further down to the waterfront) by either stairs or a paved ramp. The driveway is shared year-round with a neighboring (but much smaller) home that our extended family also owns but doesn’t rent. During winter rentals, the driveway may also be shared with a larger third home (just beyond the smaller home) that we also own. (It sleeps 14 and is available as HomeAway #3859415.) Although it may sound a bit crowded, there is both space and vegetation between the homes, and the overall layout provides each home with a nice sense of privacy.
