Boat rentals--party barge, fishing boats, waterskis and wakeboards are all available at Tim Merrril & Co across the lake in DoverFoxcroft. Water temperature reaches almost 80F degrees in the summer months, so great for water activities. The water is unbelievably clean and clear. Daytime temps in the summer months range from 75-90F, with the evenings 50-70.

Other Activities: There are 4 nine hole golf courses within a 25 mile radius. Eighteen hole courses, some very nice about an hour away. There is great fly fishing and whitewater rafting on the Penobscot river 1 1/2 hours away. Shopping and restaurants are in Dover Foxcroft 1/2 hour away. Great hiking can be found at Boarstone Mountain, Baxter State Park, and Gulf Hagus. Peaks-Kenny State Park is part of Sebec Lake. Also within a half hour are tennis courts and horseback riding. Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor make for a nice day trip from the lake house about 2 hours away.

More on Sebec Lake:

Located in central Maine's Piscataquis River Valley, Sebec Lake is surrounded by a land of recreational opportunity. Whether you come to relax in New England's rural countryside or accept the challenge of the Appalachian Trail, Sebec Lake has it all. Boating, fishing, hiking, hunting, canoeing, scenic drives and wildlife viewing are among the many activities found in the Maine Highlands region that surrounds Sebec Lake.

A scenic 45-mile drive northwest of Bangor takes you to the rolling hills and wooded shoreline of Lake Sebec. The 11-mile long lake is formed on the Sebec River by the Sebec Dam. Twice a year Sebec Lake's water level is lowered from its average depth of 42 feet to encourage the salmon spawning.

More than 800 properties are tucked among the trees surrounding Sebec Lake. Whether you select a lakeside or countryside vacation rental, the lake will provide the perfect home away from home. Here you can wake to fresh mountain air, plan your daytime excursions, and relax to the calling of loons at the end of a perfect day. Visitor needs are served by the quaint communities of Dover-Foxcroft, Bowerbank, Milo, Willimantic and Sebec.

Peaks-Kenny State Park is near the community of Dover-Foxcroft. Here you will find 813 acres offering campsites, picnic areas, restrooms, showers, a bathhouse and beach. Several public parks and ramps can be found along Sebec Lake's shoreline, concentrated in the communities of Dover-Foxcroft, Sebec and the village of Sebec Lake. The Milo Public Boat Landing provides access to Sebec Lake from the Sebec River.

Maine's Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Department places Sebec Lake in Region E (Moosehead Region). They state that the pristine waters of Sebec Lake are one of the original homes of landlocked salmon in Maine. Stocked lake trout can also be found along with smallmouth bass and white perch.

The dramatic view that spans Sebec Lake's horizon includes Mount Katahdin. At 5,267 feet, it is Maine's highest mountain and the end of the Appalachian Trail. To the north of Sebec Lake is Borestone Mountain. Here you can hike the trails of the 1,640-acre Borestone Mountain Audubon Sanctuary or visit their interpretive nature center. Located within the shadows of the mountains are Moosehead Lake, Maine's largest lake, and Baxter State Park, where you can enjoy hiking, climbing and camping.

Whether you choose to canoe, kayak, bike, hike or drive into Sebec Lake's countryside, the scenery is spectacular. Not to be missed are the nineteenth-century Katahdin Iron Works State Historic Site and two National Natural Landmarks. The first is Gulf Hagas, a 3.5-mile long gorge that is part of the Appalachian Trail. In contrast to the rugged bedrock of the gorge, "The Hermitage" holds 35 acres of Maine's oldest white pines and is protected by the Nature Conservancy.

Summer is not the only busy season at Sebec Lake. When "leaf peepers" arrive to view the spectacular color around Lake Sebec, thoughts turn to camping, hiking and the chance to hunt. Among the wildlife to be found in the forests or game preserves are black bear, moose, deer, elk and game birds. During the winter, Sebec Lake residents can expect to see temperatures approach zero with area snowfalls averaging 85 inches annually. This is the season for ice fishing, snowmobiles, skis, snowshoes and dogsleds. No matter the season or choice of recreation, a stay at Sebec Lake will place you central to it all.

Why Rafal Subernat chose Maine

Lake house has all of the modern amenities, but also charming rustic feel to it. It has a beautiful stone fireplace, hot tub, and is luxuriously appointed. Waterfront location allows for amazing views and spotting of wildlife. Listening to loons and peepers at night is very relaxing while sitting by the fire at night time.

What makes this house unique

Quiet, private, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, wildlife, amazing views to name a few...

Wonderful cottage right on the water.

  • 5 of 5

Lucky for us, this cottage was available for a last minute get away. There were 7 of us and we had plenty of room for comfy sleeping. The kitchen was absolutely spotless and fully stocked with dishes, utensils, pans etc. There are two sitting areas with couches and TV's for gatherings. One on the main floor and the other one in the daylight basement. Deer visited us daily which we all enjoyed seeing. There was firewood cut and ready for use . It made it nice as we had nightly fires on the deck.

Home Sweet Home

  • 5 of 5

We came to Sebec for our annual family and friends ice fishing weekend. It's always hard to know what you are getting yourself into when renting a place. We were pleasantly surprised. It had all the luxuries of home, was clean and had ample room for our 2 families. We will definitely come back next year!

What a beautiful house and a gorgeous property!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a wonderful long weekend at this beautiful house on Sebec Lake. The home is cozy, nice and open and just perfect for a group to enjoy. We had deer in the front yard each morning and were right on the water. We spent the days ice fishing on Sebec and landed some very nice lake trout. All in all we had a wonderful experience and would definitely recommend this rental. Raf was great to work with and we will definitely be consider staying here again in the future.

Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

No complaints here! We were stunned by the amazing view of the lake as soon as we walked thru the door! We were overly impressed with how clean and nice the Camp was! This is the nicest place we have stayed over the course of 10 years coming to Maine! We will definitely be back late spring, summer or early fall! We enjoyed the peace and quiet and the wildlife! Only complaint on this trip would be no moose sightings:) Overall, we highly recommend this Camp to anyone! The owners are quick to respond to questions and have been very accommodating, courteous and professional! It was also amazing at night to stargaze from the warmth inside thru the wall of windows! We never realized how cold it was outside until we walked out the door! This camp is super warm and cozy and they didn't leave anything out! Thanks for sharing your little piece of Heaven with us!
