Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Enjoy peace and tranquility and the call of the loons. This lovely cottage is at the end of a well-maintained dirt road, has 120 feet of lake frontage and a half acre of mostly wooded land--very private. There is a red cedar dock with bench for enjoying the beauty of the lake. A cedar swingset and slide can entertain the kids. It is only a 20 minute drive to Portland.

There are 3 BR and a 3/4 bath--maximum occupancy 4 adults and 2 children. It includes a fully equipped full kitchen, both a gas and a charcoal grill, 2 canoes, 2 kayaks, and a mini-fish sail boat. Bedding and towels are included. This is a NO SMOKING property. I will decide about pets on an individual basis. There is internet service and a TV with a DVD player (no cable TV) and lots of books to read. There is a heat pump which will provide you with heat, AC, or dehumidifier. You must bring in drinking water as all the water in the house comes from the lake. Below is an email I received from one of my last tenants.

"Jean, I have been meaning to write to thank you for the use of your cottage. We had a great time there. We absolutely loved your cottage, its location and the lake. After driving around Sebago, I was very glad to be where we were. It was just about perfect weather and we spent most of our days in or on the water. It was just what our family needed. Thank you again for letting us use all your boats. The kids loved it for boat rides and exploring the lake."

The Perfect Vacation Spot

We loved everything about this adorable lakeside cottage (including the lake). Jean couldn't be any nicer. She was always helpful without ever being intrusive. Five star rating for sure!
