Overview

Frye Island House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 8

Wicked was custom built as a classic Maine 'camp.' The interior of the house is entirely pine and the outside is covered with cedar shakes. Situated on the southern shore of Frye Island at the end of a cul-de-sac of upscale homes, Wicked is nestled among the trees on an acre of land with over 200 feet of waterfront and expansive views across Sebago Lake.

Wicked has four bedrooms which accommodate eight guests comfortably. There is a master bedroom with queen bed, walk in closet and private bath on the first floor that opens to the lakeside deck. On the second floor, there are two large bedrooms, each with two twin beds and a smaller bedroom with bunk beds. The second floor bedrooms share a full bath. The bedrooms on both floors have ceiling fans.

On the first floor there is a living area with a vaulted ceiling, with stereo and satellite television, that opens to a lakeside deck. The kitchen has modern appliances, a large walk-in pantry, and counter with seating for two. There is also a dining table that seats six. Like the living area, the kitchen/dining area open to a lakeside deck. Off the dining area, there is a lovely sun room with windows on four sides with a vaulted ceiling, with wicker upholstered furniture and an additional dining area for four. There is a powder room and laundry on the first floor.

The second floor has an open loft that looks down into the living area, with a desk, printer and wireless internet access.

A large deck, with a gas barbecue grill and additional dining space, spans the entire length of the back of the house (lakeside) for outdoor living and entertaining.

There is a deep water dock with a platform large enough for sunbathing and reading. A mooring for your boat is also available offshore. A shoreline retreat of four chairs and side tables is available to sit, relax and listen to the sounds of the lake and the cry of the loon.

Frye Island offers a great life style with 22 miles of roads for walking or jogging. There are multiple public beaches, a nine-hole golf course, tennis courts, basketball courts, play ground, community center, swimming pool, café/bar, general store, town office, post office, and ball field/park. There is a private marina with in-water boat docking for property owners on the Island; some slips are available for weekly rental for visitors and renters staying on the Island.

The island is open from the last week of April to the first week of November. The residents range from young families to retirees.

Frye Island is located in Sebago Lake approximately 25 miles west of Portland, Maine. There are two ferries that provide transportation to and from the Island and Raymond, Maine on a scheduled basis. The trip takes about ten minutes. The Island is easy to find, just head towards Raymond, Maine on State Route 302.

A popular place on the Island for both Islanders and boaters on Sebago Lake is Frye's Leap General Store and Cafe. There is also a cocktail lounge at the club house at the golf course.

Wicked, Frye Island and Maine, 'the way life should be.'

Glorious views from tranquil waterfront home

  • 5 of 5

Tranquility envelopes you as you walk through the front door of this Maine Retreat. Set on approximately an acre of waterfront land on what probably is the most private (and upscale) portion of Frye Island, this home is the quintessential Maine camp. The home is well-crafted with a solid pine interior and comfortable New England style furnishings. The living area is airy, having a double-height ceiling and french doors opening onto a deck with a glorious view of the lake. The Master Bedroom also has french doors leading out to a deck overlooking the lake -- a perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee. The home is purposefully low- key (no granite in the kitchen) but is well-equipped for everything from a Fourth of July barbecue to an intimate dinner party to a cozy family meal.

We had one minor problem with the gas grill but the owners were very responsive and solved it.

I would highly recommend this home. It would be ideal for a family vacation or for two couples to share.

Amazing vacation home on secluded Frye Island

  • 5 of 5

"Wicked" amazing vacation home set on private section of Frye Island (the whole island is quiet...but this home is super tranquil). Wake up to the sound of lake water, birds and serenity. My favorite room in the house (besides the dock) is the room off the kitchen. Great place to view the lake and have your morning coffee. This luxurious vacation home has everything you need from a washer and dryer, to a well equipped kitchen to towels and linens to wifi and premium satellite TV. The lake is super clean and offers endless opportunities to enjoy your kids. Great little golf course, general store and other sports activities including basketball and tennis. Will definitely be coming back in the future. If you're looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, then this is the place for you and your family.

Wicked - Summer Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely cottage, set back a bit from the waterfront, but an easy stroll to the dock. (We were here in August, plenty of blueberry bushes on the property.) The cottage is beautifully decorated, providing lots of private space as well as family space. We had a couple of folks needing to stay 'connected', which worked easily, and the cottage provided for lots of separate space where you could conduct phone calls, check emails, without ever losing a view of the lake. The cottage was VERY clean, well appointed. We brought a couple of favorite pans and casserole bowls, but we never needed to use any of it. Plenty of good glassware, etc.

The owners went out of their way to accommodate and fix anything that went awry. They have a dedicated maintenance man, who was terrific. I would definitely recommend this property; from our observation, one of the best rentals on the island! We would definitely recommend this and/or come again ourselves.

I'll be back every year!

  • 5 of 5

First...Michelle was wonderful! So efficient, so knowledgable, and so nice, I almost wanted to bring her along for my vacation! Wicked (named, I'm sure, after the smash Broadway Musical!), was incredible! Just minutes from the little General Store in "town", and only steps from the lake! Bring you canoe or kayak! Bring your fishing poles (not my thing...but have at it!) Grill out, or cook a fancy dinner in! Eat in my favorite room! It's like a little light house attached to the house (without the light, of course)! Watch TV! Read! It's so quiet here, I literally lost all track of time, and was able to actually relax!!!

Also important...laundry! The washer/dryer is great! Lots of bathrooms...you could come with several people...or alone! The master bedroom has it's own bathroom...and opens onto the deck!

I cannot say enough good things about my time here! In short, the area is so beautiful, and the house so grand...your only issue will be deciding whether or not to go outdoors, or stay inside.

Serenity Now!

  • 5 of 5

I have had the pleasure of vacationing at this home for 2 years now and I crave its peaceful surroundings all year long. The views here are so fabulous that I have photographed them to hang in my own home, so that I am reminded of their serentiy when I need it most. The house is beautifully kept and Frye Island is just such a unique place to visit. From the ferry ride, to the rocky beaches, my favorite local shops, and the beautiful birch trees. Everyone on the island uses golf carts to get around which I love. Its a private island, quiet, and tranquil. A nice change from the hustle and bustle of tourists on east coast beaches. This place has been an excellent haven to escape to with friends. we have had so many laughs here! The weather has been wonderful both times I visited...but even the rain here seems beautiful. My favorite room is surrounded in windows, perfect place just to read a book...the breezes throughout this home are magnificent. My only regret is having to leave. I highly suggested escaping to this house! Hurry!
