Once you've arrived you're on vacation, right on the water. This 2012 new construction lake house overlooks the Dingley Islands on Big Sebago Lake. It has a private gradual entry waterfront and deep water dock.
Large mature trees on both side of the property give you privacy. The 70+ feet of level grassy lawn allows for additional outdoor activities. There is a fire pit w/ Adirondack chairs so you can sit around the fire roasting marshmallows after watching the sunset. Bring your boat and/or use our (2) kayaks and canoe to explore Sebago Lake. This home features all the modern amenities yet the pine board interior gives it that classic Maine lodge feel. There are five bedrooms, one located on the first floor, and three bedrooms upstairs with additional kids or single room. The fully finished basement has two queen beds, a large couch and an 8' pool table.

Greg P. Gooch purchased this lodge in 2011
I'm originally from Falmouth, Maine and my parents had a camp in the Lakes Region when I was young. My husband and I wanted for our children to have a similar childhood experience at the lake. We had been researching the market on Sebago Lake for a couple of years before we jumped at the opportunity to buy this property. We've rented homes on the lake and learned that we wanted first and foremost to have southern exposure so it would be warm and sunny all day plus we'd get great sunset views off to the west. We also wanted to be in South Casco near Migis Lodge where we were married in 09. The Dingley Islands protect the Kettle Cove area from the wide open water. Not only are the islands beautiful but they provide you with a destination for kayaking and canoeing and loons and other wildlife love to hang out there! We also love that the property has it's own sandy bottom lake front and is also within a short boat ride to the State Park Sand Bar. All of this and the property is not far from Portland and the airport in one direction and the ski mountains in the other.
My family and I just got back from a week stay at this gorgeous Sebago Lake home. We traveled with our almost 3 year old son, parents and friends. The house had plenty of room for all of us. My son loved the sandbox, toys and games. The large table on the deck accommodated all of us for dinner. The house is newer and is incredibly clean, tastefully decorated with just about everything you could need. The master has the best views of the lake and at night you can hear the loons and see the moon sparkling over the water. Off the master is the nursery which is really a 5th bedroom, just doesn't have a closet. You can access it from the master or from the hallway. It was perfect for our son and he loved reading the Goodnight Maine and Goodnight Lake books that were provided. The yard is large, grassy, and shaded, perfect for relaxing. But if you wanted sun you could just sit out on the dock. I recommend bringing beach chairs for this. The dock is great, and since it is new you don't have to worry about splinters. We rented a pontoon boat and were able to pull the boat right up to the dock for easy on and off. The lake in front of the house was calm the whole week except one day. I would recommend bringing water shoes as it is a rocky bottom. We enjoyed canoeing along the shore and paddle boarding (we brought our own paddle board, the house provides a canoe and 2 kayaks). We also loved the location of the home. You can easily get to Sebago Lake State Park and Sand Bar by boat or go over to Frye Island for lunch. By car there is much to get to quickly, including the Good Life Market, a great place for lunch sandwiches, salads and groceries. Bob's Seafood was great for ordering lobsters to eat on the deck, and their lobster mac and cheese is to die for. Mosquitoes Ice Cream was the perfect place for an evening treat. We also drove to Portland a few nights for dinner, not too long of a drive. Amazingly enough I didn't get a single mosquito bite even though we were there in July as the owner sprays the property. I do wish we were given a heads up about the company coming to spray while we were there, but I would rather have them spray and enjoy the outdoors than have to stay inside or cover myself in bug repellent. Gregg, the owner, was very pleasant to communicate with and very responsive. I hope to be able to rent his beautiful lake home again in the future! Highly recommend!!!
We had an excellent time at this property and the house was in wonderful condition. The owner Greg was very friendly, helpful and quick to respond to any questions. The view was amazing and there was more than enough room for 12 adults. Excellent camp fire space out front, large deck to dine on, and a great dock to sun bathe and dock a boat at and golf courses near by. Greg also provided kayaks, canoes, life jackets and wood for the fire place. I would highly recommend renting this property to anyone looking for a wonderful getaway.
Beautiful home inside and out. The house is well equipped with just about everything you should need. Lots of cook ware of every size. While there are some very nice restaurants in the area we all choose stay in to cook and enjoy eating on the patio over looking the lake. The lake front is perfect. Deep water dock that you can drive right in off the end and not worry about hitting bottom. The water is very clean with a rocky and sandy bottom. The backyard also had a very nice fire pit right next to the water that we enjoyed every night. Greg keeps a nice stack of firewood too so we didn't have to worry about going out and getting our own. Sometimes it's the little things that make a big difference.
Awesome home with an amazing location right on the lake. The dock is gorgeous and the kayaks and canoe are a blast to go out and relax on the water. The house itself is very modern and has all the amenities you would need. Greg has the place ready to go when you arrive with linens which makes your stay even easier. The pool table in the basement is an added fun element at night. Loved staying here and would certainly go back. Thanks Greg!
Had a wonderful fall getaway. Stayed for one week. Accommodation and finishes throughout the house are superb.
Owner was great to deal with, very accommodating and was very flexible with our plans. Thanks Greg !
Outside: Yard has a sandpit which our daughter loved and a fire pit together with a small beach, dock and mooring.
Inside: Lots of room inside. Master suite has amazing views! There is a childs room that can be accessed from the master. Two other bedrooms on the second floor with separate bathroom. First floor there is another bedroom, great living room area, fireplace and superb kitchen. Basement has games room and a large bedroom area.
Everything was very clean, nicely laid out and well finished.
Loved staying at this property.
We had a large group of 16 (8 adults and 8 children) with another 5 family members visiting during the stay. This house is not short on space and comfort for both daytime and sleeping accommodations for everyone. The interior is very well done, with excellent attention to detail obvious in the construction and finish work of the home-- if you go with a large group, the master bedroom suite has incredible views to greet each day and will be a popular spot to check out on day 1. Terrific kitchen. The lower level is an excellent recreation area with a TV, pool table etc. The main level has plenty of seating both for dinner and just hanging around, with a beautiful fireplace and ample seating, with an obvious focus on people enjoying spending time together-- thank you for NOT making the TV a centerpiece in such a beautiful spot! Even with 1 rain day during our stay, and every one of 16+ folks that day hanging around, people weren't getting in each others way. The property has an excellent backyard, with space for smaller children to play outside with a good standoff from water if that were a parents concern. The dock, waterfront and lake location are quite ideal with regard to wind, weather and lake traffic. We rented a large pontoon boat and the mooring ball was very easy to approach and connect to. Out in front of the house there is excellent lake room despite the islands for tubing and water skiing. We enjoyed everything from the boat, to standup paddle boards and kayaks. The water was only choppy on the 1 day of rain we had and otherwise was excellent for all of the above water activities. Temperature wise, Sebago is an excellent swimming lake. When we chose to venture out around the lake whether by kayak, canoe or boat, there were excellent places to explore and interesting spots to anchor swim and enjoy. Each evening we relaxed with the whole family around a very safe, spacious fire pit area with an excellent position right by the water, which everyone enjoyed sounds of both the fire and the water in the background. Within a 10 minute drive we had terrific dinners, when we chose to head out -- The Lobster Pound in Naples, ME was awesome! One night we took some of the kids into Portland to watch the Sea Dogs AA baseball team and the drive was a surprisingly direct and convenient 30-35 minutes from door to door. Bring your camera as both the house and surroundings are full of memory making opportunities -- this house might set the standard
