Boat rentals--party barge, fishing boats, waterskis and wakeboards are all available at Tim Merrril & Co http://www.boatsebeclake.com/links.html 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: http://www.lakelubbers.com/sebec-lake-983/

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.

About Rafal Subernat

Jenn and Raf are Maine lovers who enjoy spending time at this serene and peaceful property. Bringing their twins to the lake house is one of the most relaxing times and they cherish the memories made at this beautiful spot. Jenn is originally from Maine and spent most of her life in the Bangor area. Raf fell in love with Maine many years ago and calls this property a "piece of heaven".

Rafal Subernat purchased this house in 2012

Why Rafal Subernat chose Bowerbank

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...

Quiet, peaceful, perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect! Everything you need is here which made traveling from PA so much easier. The ducks on the lake were entertaining to listen to. Two loons made their way to our end of the lake every morning but didn’t have anything to say. (I love the sound of loons.). We were able to travel to so many places within a two hourish drive. Acadia/Bar Harbor, Greenville (moose searching-saw two near Shirley) Monson( hiking), Bingham ( Atv Rental), Baxter State Park, and Wiscasset for the famous Red’s lobster roll ( get a side of scallops...omg!) In all, great property. If you are considering to rent this place....DO IT!

October Vacation

  • 5 of 5

There isn't much more I can say about how fantastic Camp Subernat was that hasn't been mentioned many times in previous reviews. We were 3 couples who have traveled together before and it's a great luxury that everyone has their own bedroom and bathrooms. Really makes life much easier. All of the rooms in the house were very comfortable and well appointed. The house is much bigger than it appears in the photos....lot's of room. Couple of nights the guys were watching football upstairs and the gals took their wine and went down into the large spacious rec room and chatted for hours. We had fires every night....the firepit on the deck was used each night and we made one bonfire down in the yard which was a lot of fun. All the firewood was supplied...if you would had to have paid for the amount we burned it would have been expensive so this is a great benefit to this cabin. The view on the lake was beautiful.....early October and Maine was in full color, we lucked out. About 20 minutes from town and groceries...no big deal. All the houses in this part of Lake Sebec are beautiful....nothing run down or old. Good drives into Moosehead Lake/Bangor/Katahdin Iron Works/etc. Don't miss the B-52 memorial in Moosehead; sad, creepy and different all in one! HIGHLY recommend this cabin.

Great place

Stayed for a weekend while in town for a wedding. The house was clean and exactly as described. The view in the mornings was nice. The yard was perfect for our 4 year old to run around. Would definitely recommend.

relaxing in cabin with a lake veiw

  • 5 of 5

Cabin has plenty of beds for guest and kids. Very clean and comfortable with all the amenities you will need to stay for as long as you like. Price's are very reasonable and rented a pontoon boat as well. Had a very relaxing week and cannot wait to go back maybe next year. Firewood for a camp fire outside was a nice add on for the grand kids to cook marsh mellows in the evenings. Fishing great for kids as well.

Heaven

  • 5 of 5

First time we stayed here. As we pulled up to this red home nestled among the tall pines .... it appeared so small! We walked through the door and WOW! Nothing small about it! Just pure cozy roomy warmth. Very homey and welcoming decorated. Designed so well for gathering inside and out. And spotlessly clean. The pictures on line do not do this perfect place justice. The views of the lake , the sounds of the loons, eagles and the fishing was great. A Marina near by to rent a boat as we did. We loved Camp Subernat and will go back in a heart beat.

Thank you for your hospitality
