ALL SEASONS in Maine are everything you'd expect and even more.

MAINE IS SPECTACULAR!
Sebago Lake is one of the cleanest bodies of water in the world. It is a large open lake, and the water is so clean it provides the drinking water for Portland, and surrounding towns.
The cottage is located on one acre of grassy land that gradually slopes to a sandy beach and incredible views. There is shallow water for bathing, and deep water for boating.
It is CENTRALLY LOCATED in a quiet, upscale neighborhood, yet is minutes away from shopping, activities, and restaurants. You may bring or rent a boat and moor it at the dock, or use the boat. If you like to fish, there are plenty of salmon, bass, and trout. Watch and listen to the loons from the comfortable rockers overlooking lovely perennial gardens. The cottage is attractively decorated, spotless, and completely furnished. There are two bedrooms, and a sleeping loft with ladder access.One bedroom has a bunk bed, and the other bedroom has a queen-size bed. This is a no pet property due to guests' allergies. Check in time is 2 pm on Saturday and checkout time is 10 am on Saturday.
Maximum occupancy - 6 on the property at any one time. No gatherings.

September 20 - October 4, 2014
Marian and Bob - Thank you for making this heavenly secluded spot so perfect. It is like "On Golden Pond" , even with loons on the lake. We enjoyed so many sunny days sitting by the lake, as well as watching the foliage grow more colorful each day as we drove around the area. We enjoyed fresh steamed lobster three times - Hannaford's is a great place to get whatever size you want. Had delicious sweet Italian sausage from the butcher next to the laundromat. Ate haddock chowder and sweet treats and great quiche from Chipman's (farm) as well as sandwiches from the Good Life Market. Ate twice at Black Bear Tavern in Naples - great Shepherd's Pie - and a good steak at Rustlers. Loved the play in Oqunquit (playhouse), the Portland Museum of Art, and shopping in Freeport.
One of our most unique memories will be the sound of acorns falling on the roof! This cottage is homey and fully equipped. You have thought of everything including pie and wine! Thank you to both of you. John and Priscilla - Texas
August 30 - September 20, 2014
Marian and Bob: Well, another summer has come and gone. As in the past years we have had a delightful time. The weather was great and the fishing for Rich was outstanding. The pie was delicious and the gift lovely. Looking forward to next year already. Have a great holiday season as well as good health. See you both next year. Rich and Pat - Connecticut
August 23 - 30, 2014
Dear Bob and Marian - Once again we've had a wonderful vacation here on Sebago Lake. How many years has it been? 15? And, now, since we have moved to Maine , we won't be back, but we'll still visit....as often as possible. Thanks, as always, for the great pie and ice cream, and the lovely cottage and amenities. We love it. All the best and see you next summer - We'll drop by - Carolyn P.
Although this was our last time as regular guests, the perfect weather made it a fabulous week. Thanks for everything. We'll always think and dream about this cottage! All the best to the both of you - Paul V.
August 16 - 23, 2014
Thank you so much for offering your cottage for our summer vacation. The beach, grassy yard, and deck are fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed the views and peaceful surroundings. Your hospitality certainly didn't go unnoticed. You treated us like friends, and for that we thank you. Fondly, Danielle, John, and family - Massachusetts
August 9 - 16, 2014
Marian and Bob - Thank you so much again for our super week in your cottage. Always looked forward to and remembered all the year after. As we told Bob, our first paddle in the canoe is always around Shively's Point to be sure my parents' place is in good order not wanting our youthful days to completely disappear (smile face) I guess. Time moves on but our stay here is never changing from welcoming bouquet, yummy dessert in the refrigerator, and a special gift - all with our special thanks. As always we walked our remembered walks and paddled the shores we used to ski by, not to mention the afternoons of having nothing we had to do. Pure luxury - and very much appreciated and enjoyed. Until next year - Lorraine and Ted, Massachusetts
August 2 - 9, 2014
Bob and Marian - We had a great week and thank you for your hospitality. Your cottage and grounds are so well maintained and the location is perfect. Our kids loved their first visit to Maine and we hope to be back every summer in the coming years. You have a great place but the hospitality and maintenance make it even more special. We hope to see you again next summer. Dave, Alexia, and family. Rhode Island
July 26 - August 1, 2014
Dear Marian and Bob - Just wanted to express our thanks for all of the hospitality. From the moment we arrived, we felt right at home and part of that was due to meeting you both. The whole family enjoyed the lake and we took the canoe out every day. We know that the girls will always remember this lake house and all of the fun we have had here. All the best, Christine, Chris, Grace, and Emily S.
July 19 - 26, 2014
We have thoroughly enjoyed our peaceful retreat here at this lovely cottage. The hospitality was top-notch. Thank you ever so much for the pristine clean home, the yummy lemon-meringue pie, and the spa treat! We enjoyed the view, swimming, biking, and boating most of all. We will enjoy future opportunities to stay at this amazing cottage. Happy summer and all the best. Andrew, Heather, Adam, Emily, and Jonathan
July 5 - 12, 2014
Dear Marian and Bob - We are so sad to head back home tomorrow after such a wonderful week staying at your lovely cottage! The grounds couldn't be more perfect. We enjoyed the beach with the kids during the day and the dock was perfect for enjoying a drink after they were in bed. Your flower gardens are beautiful and having the flower beds makes an amazing spot that much better! We thank you for the delicious pie and ice cream and for the gift - such a nice surprise when we arrived, If only we could spend all summer! From all of us, thank you for everything and we hope to be back again next year! The "T" family
June 28 - July 5, 2014
Marian and Bob - Walking on to the grounds and into the cottage feels like entering a four-star resort! Our every need was anticipated! We could not have found a more beautiful yard or beach - sandy and private. Listening to the birds sing while relaxing in the cushioned lounge chairs was a pleasure I won't forget. Having the chance to canoe with my daughter was so much fun! Our first trip to Sebago has been very special. Thank you for your many "kindnesses". Colleen and Sharon - Maine
June 22 - 28, 2014
Thank you for the wonderful cherry pie and welcome gift. Hope you have a great summer with your grand children. We enjoyed our stay!! Chris and Ralph, New Hampshire
May 31 - June 14, 2014
Marian and Bob - Thank you for the wonderful hospitality you provide, in such a beautiful place. We have enjoyed being here again this year, and of course look to be back next year!! Though we were busy, we were still able to get out and enjoy the water, walk and go hiking, and my favorite...sit down front in the mornings with coffee and relax while watching the birds, geese, ducks (along with the little ducklings) and butterflies. You truly have a blessed area/location. One that brings peace to all. Thank you as well for the fabulous pie and ice cream. along with the muffins. You all truly spoil us!!! Take care.
Jason and Karen (Maine)
September 28 - October 5, 2013
Dear Marian and Bob,
We could not have asked for a more enjoyable experience with our first trip to Sebago Lake! Had a wonderful time, absolutely beautiful accommodations at your lovely cottage, and weather was fantastic! Thanks for the cake, ice cream, and gift. We will definitely be back! Many thanks to our hosts! Cathy and Rich, Connecticut
September 21 - 28, 2013
Bob and Marian - What a lovely place! It was great staying here and we enjoyed all the perks. So clean and beautiful. Thanks for the gift, cake, and ice cream. Have a great winter. Norm and Claudette - Florida
Bob and Marian,
As they say time flies when you're having fun and these three weeks certainly did that. As always, we had a very relaxing time even though the weather didn't cooperate. Staying here feels like home - comfy and cozy. The pies were delicious as usual. Rich and I are already looking forward to next year. Stay healthy both of you - have a great Thanksgiving and Christmas, and we'll see you next year - Take care. Rich & Pat, CT
August 10 - 17, 2013
Another memorable and enjoyable week - no, perfect is more accurate - in your lovely cottage again this year. It always makes Sebago feel like it's still our vacation home again - good memories brought back and good times again - feel good "stuff" all 'round.
Also, can't thank you both enough for all your special touches - garden flowers inside and out, apple pie, ice cream, and your hostess package to bring our stay to mind all through the winter months. All good wishes for a restful and happy end to your summer. The Sebago calendar and pictures will remind us each day!

Dear Marian and Bob,
Thank you for the welcome gift and delicious cherry pie with ice cream, Your cottage is lovely, and the gardens are beautiful! We enjoyed our stay very much, it was peaceful and relaxing. We stayed by the lake during the day, water is very warm here! In the afternoon we read books on the porch and would get a visit from a humming bird every evening. You have a very lovely place! Thanks again for everything!

July 20 - 27, 2013
Dear Bob and Marian,
Here we are back home again and missing the lakefront view we so enjoyed for a week!!! Our granddaughters thoroughly enjoyed swimming and fishing and the loft was a BIG hit. Your warm welcome made us feel right at home and the pie and ice cream was much appreciated as was the gift of bath items. You go out of your way to make renting your cottage a wonderful experience. We will remember our stay with fond memories,. Wishing you the best. Chris and Ralph - New Hampshire
June 22 - July 13, 2013
Dear Bob and Marian -
How many years has it been?.... 12 - 13? We love coming here every summer and dream about it all winter! Even with this summer's up and down weather, it's been wonderful here, as usual. Your cottage is great and we hope to return again next summer. Thanks, too, for the delicious blueberry pie and ice cream - we loved them. Have a great rest-of-summer and the winter! Thank you for your hospitality and thoughtful amenities which have made this an ideal stay. Carolyn and Paul, Chicago

Bob and Marian,
Thank you very much for sharing your lovely cottage with us. The cottage is simply beautiful inside and out. Inside, every little detail has been taken care of which allows the cottage to feel like home. Outside, all the beautiful gardens only add to the wonderful beach and lake-view the cottage has. We also appreciate the honeymoon/ wedding gift, pie and ice cream that helped in making our honeymoon perfect. Thanks again,
Tim and Anne, New Jersey
June 1 to 15, 2013
Bob and Marian - Thank you for your generous hospitality in allowing us to enjoy and relax at your lovely cottage. You have such a beautiful location, and all that you've done on the grounds just makes one want to stay forever. I love your perennial gardens, and wish to say thank you for allowing me to work in them a little. It is so peaceful and relaxing, just to hear the birds and watch the humming birds go from one flower to another. We also feel very blessed to have been able to stay the second week - it was just what we needed. Also, thank you for the fabulous pie and ice cream, as well as your welcome gift for us! You spoil us all!! We are grateful we had the opportunity to come and we look forward to future years ahead. It was nice meeting you both and enjoyed our conversations. You are both gracious and dear people. Fondly, Jason & Karen, Maine
5/27 - 6/1, 2013
Thank you for sharing your cottage. Peace and quiet and the beauty of the lake, gardens, and birds made our time to rest and relax wonderful. Doug loved the pie and ice cream and thank you so much for the welcome gift. Again, thank you. Doug and Kathy, Maine.
May 19 - 25, 2013
Your cottage is all we needed for our most wonderful and relaxing honeymoon. We are sad not to be able to stay longer, but we are looking forward for the years to come! The lake is so clear and beautiful. Marcos and I were able to go boating a few times which was so nice! Thank you for the welcome cake and the spa gift! God bless you guys! Love, Amanda and Marcos
May 4 - May 11, 2013
Thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy your cottage! The house is cozy and inviting, the grounds are spacious, and the lake is peaceful and beautiful. The graduation cake, album, and card were very nice and warmed my heart. This is our first vacation in Maine, but probably not our last. We hope to come back to your cottage soon.
God bless you both! The "B" family, Massachusetts
May 4 - May 11, 2013
I love the cottage. The lake was so much fun. The cake was good. Yard was wonderful. The rooms were nice. We hope to come back soon! The (cloth) lobsters (on the loft beds) were adorable. God bless you and your family. The "B" girls, Massachusetts
October 20 to 27, 2012
Dear Marian and Bob - This was just the perfect retreat at your lovely lake front cottage. Your warm welcome and generous hospitality was greatly appreciated. The cottage is darling, so well equipped and comfortable in everyway. Loved the blueberry pie and ice cream too! The weather was amazing and let me enjoy the last "hoorah" of summer before (Hurricane) Sandy! Best wishes with appreciation,
Phyllis P. Cape Cod, MA
10/6 - 10/13/2012
Dear Marian and Bob, - Thank you for sharing your beautiful cottage. We had a wonderful relaxing week, starting with the Fryeburg Fair, then Acadia, Ogunquit, and finally the White Mountains. We had the perfect place to return to each day. The view of the lake which is seen through most of the windows was amazing. The perfect place to read and just settle in. Thank you for the many gifts and surprises! The pie, ice cream, pillow, apple butter, and fresh flowers throughout the cottage made us feel so welcome and special! It is going to be hard to leave. Thank you again! - Tom and Marie, Pittsburgh, PA

2011 SEASON - Some more comments passed on by a number of our guests: LIKED: THE LOCATION, THE PRIVATE BEACH, THE DOCK, AND THE COTTAGE WAS IMMACULATE. IT HAD ALL THE AMENITIES WE NEEDED - INTERNET, CABLE, DVD. THERE WAS EVEN A PIE IN THE FRIDGE WHEN WE ARRIVED! THERE WAS FURNITURE INSIDE AND OUT, A BEACH TO PLAY ON, A CANOE. IT WAS GREAT.

We really enjoyed the short time we were here. Unfortunately, Hurricane "Irene" had her own plans. Thank you so much for your hospitality, the flowers, delicious pie, etc. Hopefully, we'll meet again. Doris and John
Owners' note - We had John and Doris back later in the 2011 summer to complete their vacation. They were pleased because it was their wedding anniversary. Marian and Bob
Thank you once again for your hospitality (the pie and ice cream - hostess gift were perfect). We enjoyed a relaxing, wonderful week on the lake and look forward to coming again next year. Fondly, The "C" family.
Three glorious weeks! It went by so fast. The lake was warm, the wearher great, and as usual, the cottage was perfect. It will be hard to get back to work. Thanks for everything. C.R.
What a pleasure! Another lovely week - your perfect cottage filled with special thoughtfulness - fresh-cut flowers, apple pie a-la-mode - even muffins for breakfast - and a hostess gift that will remind us of Sebago Lake all winter long. Good thought about the loons at our beach - but by the time the camera was in hand , we literally could see only the wakes they left behind as they swam out of sight. Already looking forward to next year. LP and TP
Thank you for sharing your bit of paradise. We had an amazing time. The view is breath taking, gardens exquisite, and the yard is perfect for the kids to get their energy out! See you next year! The Zimmermans
P.S. Thanks for the pie & ice cream _ we arrived on Father's day so it was a perfect surprise.
What a joy to have been able to enjoy the cottage for three weeks this summer. You are adding little touches in furniture and decor which makes it even more pleasant. Thanks for everything VERY, VERY MUCH. Can't hardly wait for next summer! Paul - Niles (Chicago)
I echo my husband's sentiments - We LOVE this cottage and can hardly wait until next summer. Beautiful cottage, beautiful decor, beautiful location! Carolyn - Niles (Chicago).
We flew all the way across the country (California) to visit your beautiful cottage and lake, and we couldn't have been more pleased. The cottage and even beach were immaculate upon our arrival. Every possible creature comfort was here, from an ice cream scoop to sand toys to extra pillows. The garden was a very nice touch, as were the cushioned rocking chairs by the water.What a lovely, relaxing, idyllic place...totally worth the trip! Thank you for your hospitality, The Medley family
P.S. Our kids are ready to move in due to the "kids' loft". What a perfect fort for the kids to enjoy!
P.P.S. Thank you for the pie and ice cream!!
Dear Bob and Marian, We had a great time this week! Thank you so much for your hospitality. You two are the best hosts. Have a great year and we'll see you next summer.

Back again this year after 2 years away (So sad!). It was wonderful as always - our 8th summer here! We had a great 2 weeks with lovely weather. The cottage is great as always with lovely decor, amenities and comfort. You are wonderful hosts and we look forward to 3 weeks next summer. "C"

Thank you for sharing your lovely cottage with us. Everything was wonderful. Your special touches make for a very comfortable experience.

We loved watching the leaves change color during our stay. What wonderful memories we will have.
9/2010 Mr. and Mrs. "O", Cape Cod, MA
Thank you so very much for renting to us. My husband searched the internet looking for the perfect place for this very much needed getaway! He got an A++! When we pulled into the driveway my breath was taken away - what a jewel you have here. The cottage is adorable and my husband's favorite pie and vanilla ice cream is his favorite as well. Saturday morning at 0715 we were out on the lake in the canoe for 2 hours! We did some sight seeing - went to Bath, ME and ate at "Red's eats" in Wiscassett, ME. P.S. Thank you for the gift! How thoughtful. We hope to come back for a week next year. P.S.S. Forgot to mention how lucky we were that the weather was perfect.
6/12/10 - 7/3/10 The BEST COTTAGE in the Lakes Region; MILLION DOLLAR view, gorgeous property, incredible neighbors, and priceless hospitality! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us again this summer and thanks for the goodies and TLC! See you next year!

Summer 2008 -
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Wright,
My Goodness! Your cottage is really a treasured spot. I can see why people keep coming back.
Thank you for the welcoming gifts. The spa gift, ice cream, and the pie! Delish! We love blueberries - Jim use to pick them as a Summer job (he said he ate most of them). The pie crust was so flaky, I'd love to have the recipe. Thank you for sharing "Paradise" with us. We'd love to come back. Warmly, Noel and Jim PS - Loved the flowers - inside and out. (Beautiful Landscaping).
