About Karee Rhoades

I was very lucky to have grown up in this home. I spent every summer outside swimming and water skiing. A few years ago I did a complete renovation/remodel which opened up the living space and added modern features.

Karee Rhoades purchased this house in 1976

Why Karee Rhoades chose Sebago Lakes Region

Beautiful on the inside and out. This is more of a lake house vs. Camp. If you are more into comfort/beach house rather than woodsy roughing it, then this is your spot.

The open floor plan is perfect for spending time with family in a comfortable setting. Most of my guests have been grandparents spending time with grown children and grandchildren. The house is perfect for this type of vacation.

What makes this house unique

Waterfront Property with steps into sandy beach. Private dock with boat slip or mooring is available. Large deck with gas grill. Walking distance to an ice cream shop & variety store.

Excellent Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 and another family of 4 stayed at Karee's lake house property in August 2015

It was an excellent vacation for many reasons: 1) the house is out of a home design magazine and better than the pictures, with a beautiful open kitchen, a family room with wrap around windows and a multi-level deck with amazing views, 2) the backyard is awesome for families - lots of green space for playing games outside but nice and close to the water, 3) the lake is perfect - it's pretty shallow which is great for kids but deep enough to jump, plus nice and clean, 4) the house has a store and ice-cream/pizza/hoagie shop across the street - what is better than ice cream and hoagies!!! plus, the store has lots of supplies and great pizza, 5) Karee stocked the house perfectly - beach towels, toys, games, TV, wifi, etc and 6) the location is excellent - it's a quick drive to Naples to rent boats and get on Sebago lake.

Thank you Karee. We had an awesome time and would definitely return.

Fantastic Maine Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

I am a repeat client of this wonderful lake house. The house is beautiful and the lake view is spectacular. We fished in the morning, swam all day, went out on our paddle boards, floats, and kayaks. My teenagers rarely were inside playing videos games, but instead we were playing games or cards, laughing and communicating. The house is very spacious. All four of the bedrooms were charmingly decorated and the perfect size. The master bedroom downstairs has its own private bathroom and the front bedroom upstairs has a fantastic view of the lake. It was beautiful to wake up to every morning. There is a large dining room for indoor dinners and the kitchen is perfect for gathering, cooking and creating with friends and family. We didn’t spend much time indoors because the weather was so nice, but when we did we all gathered in the family room with the fireplace. There are three outdoor decks all on different levels and more outdoor dining to enjoy the beautiful Maine weather and the view. The home has a perfect “remote” feel, but is also only about 10 minutes away from a great little town with fun restaurants and more outdoor activities. We couldn’t have asked for a better vacation.

Lake House vacation

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful camp! Breath taking decor. Great big yard space on the water. The lake's water was like bath water. Very clean, calm, and quiet. We felt very comfortable and right at home. MANY of the camp's amenities were provided for us, which was HUGE. I thought that was smart, so we didn't try to bring in our own soaps etc, and end up messing up the dishwasher or washing machine, etc. We vacationed with a baby, and everything being provided for us made our stay so much smoother, and relaxing, because I knew she had everything we would need. It was a pleasure to call that camp "ours" for a week, and celebrate family and friends all week long. The entire week went very smoothly. It was great!!!

Magical experience in a little Maine town setting

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was the dream vacation. We had everything we needed and much more. I have rented a number of houses through VRBO and I can say this one out does them all. Lovely setting with clear views of Pleasant Lake and tastefully decorated. A great place for a couples get away or a family gathering The boys loved swimming and playing on the big floating tube.
