Overview

Sebago Lakes Region House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom with gorgeous views of lake and private beach. Sleeps 8-10

Beachfront Property on Sebago Cove Sleeps 8

Our four-season home is located on Sebago Cove, on the northern end of Sebago Lake. Our cove is not only peaceful and quiet, but the rare boat traffic makes for more enjoyable swimming, kayaking and other water activities. We are but four miles from the causeway where you'll find local restaurants (many featuring live music), outdoor bars, a large public beach area as well as boat tours.

Our home has just undergone a full renovation this spring. We have three bedrooms (queen, double, 2 twins and a trundle bed), a large, open kitchen with dishwasher and fully updated bathroom. In addition, our home features a large comfortable living area with a heart warming 10-foot wide fire place. A sun room off the living area makes a nice get-away spot or cool sleeping area for guests. Two of the bedrooms, as well as the kitchen and living area, have lovely views of the lake. There are new wood and/or marble floors throughout the home.

The kitchen is stocked with everything you'll need to prepare for your summer parties; however, if you prefer cooking by the lake while listening to the loons, an outside grill is provided. At water's edge, you'll find a private walkout sandy beach, as well as a dock to play on or hitch a boat to. There are several marinas around the corner that offer boat rentals.

For your enjoyment and convenience, we have books to read, games to play, and plenty of firewood for late night campfires under the stars. We also have an LED tv, cable, wi-fi, DVD player, and telephone service.

**Please note that we only rent out by the week during the summer. Thanks! **

About Kirsten Evans

Hello there! My name is Kirsten and my fiance, Adam, purchased this home this past winter and have been renovating it ever since. I grew up in central Maine, in the Belgrade Lakes region and have been looking forward to owning a home on the water since I was a kid. We love to buy old neglected homes and bring them back to life...almost as much as antiquing in this area. Its a gold mine! I am a pediatric nurse and Adam is an epidemiologist by day, and handy man at night.

Kirsten Evans purchased this house in 2013

Why Kirsten Evans chose Sebago Lakes Region

If you are looking to vacation on a lakefront property, but don't want to compromise on the luxuries of your home, this is your place! The whole house has just been renovated and will be sure to please even the toughest of mother-in-laws!

What makes this house unique

We love this home because of how peaceful it is to sit on the outdoor sectional on the deck with your feet up, drink in hand, and the loons singing in the background.

Beautiful home, great location!

  • 5 of 5

I have to admit that at first glance from the front of the house, I was concerned the house would not live up to my expectations. I was wrong! Once I opened the door and saw the open and updated kitchen and living room my concerns were eliminated. We are a family with five teenage boys and we had plenty of room and never felt cramped, plenty of space. The bathroom is also newly updated. By the dock was a hammock and a fire pit. Though we could jump off the dock to swim due to milfoil, there were plenty of other water activities to keep us busy. The owners went way above and beyond to fulfill our needs and requests! I highly recommend renting this property!

Absolutely GREAT place! Everything you need to enjoy a week or more at the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

Although we had a few days of rain, we absolutely enjoyed this great place and will come again year after year! Despite the fact that we had a few problems with trying to get away for a long weekend, (our problems, not the owners), they did everything in their power to help us plan a much needed getaway and were helpful in letting us extend our vacation to include a Monday morning departure. As soon as we opened the door, we knew that we had booked the right place. The place is tastefully decorated with adequate, comfy furniture including cable TV and phone service. The bedrooms had comfortable beds that were covered with higher end sheets, comforters and pillows and the mattresses were so comfortable that we all slept late into the morning! Everything was spotlessly cleaned when we arrived and the cabinets were stocked with just about any condiment that you will need. The bathroom was spotless and had a great assortment of towels including beach towels. There is a hairdryer and other toiletries under the vanity. Basically, you don't have to bring anything except I noticed there was no iron or ironing board, but there is a full size washer and dryer if you don't want to go home with a bunch of dirty laundry! I don't even think I can say enough good things about the location! Just walk out the back door and you are at a beautiful dock and a little private beach that the kids would love! There is a place on the dock to tie a boat or just spend the day swimming and fishing! Sit out by the fire-pit or swing in the hammock or take the canoe for a spin! It is a beautiful, peaceful view. At days end, there is a barbeque to cook on and a picnic table to sit at if you want to eat outside. The owners are absolutely great and very responsive to our needs. They have a great list of things to do next to the telephone and the code for the Wi-Fi is listed here. ^You are very close to the Causeway where you can go for ice cream, food, sporting goods like fishing gear, water rafts and you can rent just about anything you need to have fun on the lake like a speed boat, jet-ski or a pontoon boat! The location is great. There is even a supermarket and a post-office within 5 or 6 miles. This place is great for families. Rent this place. You will not be disappointed!

A perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

This great house has everything you need for an amazing Maine getaway! It sits perfectly on a quiet cove, providing for amazing sunsets and easy access to the water for swimming or boating. Because of the ideal location, there aren't many others on the lake and it is extremely quiet, especially during the week. The house is great for families with kids, and provides easy access to Naples, Portland and the Maine coast. The owners are extremely responsive and did everything to ensure we had a great week. I highly recommend this great house!

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

The hot forecast in the city called for a couple's retreat to the cooler waterfront of Naples, Maine.

We arrived to the house to find it clean and welcoming. The entire house looked was remodeled with a beautiful bathroom and a very new, open, and functional kitchen. Within hours we received a call from the owners to check that everything met our expectations and if we had any questions or concerns. We felt welcomed and truly at home from check-in to check-out.

The outdoor space was divine. The cove is a quiet part of a typically busy Sebago Lake. The dock recieves great full sun, so bring your sunscreen! When you need a break, the shaded back deck will provide a reprieve from the midday sun. The back deck was a great place for the to sit and have a cocktail, grill a nice salmon fillet with a side of asapargus, and be at peace while looking over the water.

During the evening we laid in the hammock while a fire burned in the pit. The setup of this property is great for entertaining while enjoying the many different amenities. The house met every need for a couple. The owners were responsive, friendly, and accommodating. We look forward to renting again when a weekend away is in order!

Our view

  • 4 of 5

We had a fun time on our stay at this house. Despite a poor first impression left by the inadequate cleaning service, the owners bent over backwards and made up for it. They were grateful for the feedback and immediately took responsibility and did what they could to remedy the issue. The owners could not have been more understanding!

A boat at this location is almost mandatory as there is not a whole lot else on the property to do except sit on the dock and swim, or relax in the hammock.

We had small children ages 5 to 9, and it worked out perfectly. The weekends are certainly a lot louder and more crowded on Muddy River Pond as compared to the regular week, but the week nights were nice and quiet.

Great house for boating vacation, on a quite cove.

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun staying here with 6 adults and 3 kids. There was plenty of room. We put our 20' cuddy cabin in at Sebago state park and had no problem docking it at the house. Also caught a few fish at the dock. The owners are great and stayed in contact to ensure everything was ok. The kitchen table is the perfect size for cards and board games. We plan on returning next year!

There are many great family friendly restaurants just four miles down the road as well as a huge public beach for the kids to play on, if they get bored with the private beach right in front of the house! There is also an amusement park in the next town over that has bumper cars, mini-golf, and much more. There are also several outdoor bars with live music on weekend nights. If you like to golf, the Point Sebago golf resort is right down the road. There is also an amusement park for both the kids and adults that has go karts, mini-golf and much more just a few miles down the road. Portland and the Old Port are only 45 minutes away if you like great restaurants, nightlife, and shopping. Also, if you like nature, the Sebago Lake State Park is only 2 miles down the road.
