Description of the Casco vacation cottage rental
In the Sebago Lake Region of the Western Maine Mountains, the Crooked Cottage is absolutely adorable. Maine Western Mountains and Lakes Region waterfront cabin cottage on the Crooked River, from here you can paddle to either Sebago Lake or Long Lake/Brandy Pond through the Songo Locks. A short bike ride to Sebago Lake State Park. Point Sebago Gulf course is minutes away (less than 2 miles). Better than renting hotels or accommodations in Maine's Western Mountains and Lakes Region, which force you to leave to have fun! You don't have to leave Crooked Cottage in Maine to have fun!

Have fun hiking in the very nearby Mountains of Maine and New Hampshire. A nice and easy hike at Jocket Cap in Fryeburg Maine will give beautiful views. We call Crooked Cottage the "Illusion of Seclusion"! It is minutes from most attractions & restaurants but nestled amongst the towering pines (which we have been told by a tree expert are 1000+ years old). Shop at the Outlets in Freeport Maine and outlet shopping in North Conway New Hampshire, both about 35 - 40 minutes away. Ocean beaches within 40 minutes but why go there when there is water everywhere here! Go antiquiing all over the place. See beautiful Maine and New Hampshire fall foliage. Kids park (Santa's Village) in Glen NH is only 40 minutes! Lakes Region fun park is less than 10 minutes away. Excellent and very reasonable restaurants all very close- how close - within 2 minutes drive! Or even walk to a few in less than 10 minutes.

The cottage offers Barbeque gas grille & firepit. Very nice wooded walking trails within 5 minutes walk. Leave your car in the driveway if you want. Get groceries on the way to the Lakes Region of Maine and enjoy the full kitchen with oven, stove, microwave and all kinds of appliances- pop corn maker, blender for those frozen umbrella drinks, toaster & waffle maker! Outdoor dining area & gas grille, Adirondack chairs & water toys for the kids. A nice floating swim raft make a nice place to sit and enjoy the water rolling by. Perfect for families or for a romantic vacation for 2. Outdoor shower with hot water too! Hiking, kayaking & outlet guides are all in the cottage along with area maps & directions. Safe area for kids since the water is not swift & there are many shallow swimming areas. Want to get a bit more wet-go dip in the deeper swim holes! Great river fishing or head over to Long Lake or Sebago Lake- both minutes away. You can walk to Long Lake in 1.5 miles! ride your bike or drive. Canoes & kayaks can be rented locally & even delivered. Paddle from the back door over to either Lake.

There is satellite TV/DVD player/CD player & stereo, music, games, books, etc. All rentals can come with full linen & cleaning service after you leave (for additional fee). Dogs allowed with prior permission & additional deposit. Only one close neighbor otherwise just you and nature amongst the towering pines! Come & have a blast. Here you have the "Illusion of Seclusion" yet are very close to everything. Or just hang in the hammocks! All here in the Sebago Lakes region & Western Mountains of Maine!

Other Vacation Rental Amenities
Please read thoroughly as this area further describes the property amenities. Boxes above are generic boxes & I give you more thorough descriptions here. & in other text areas. Large outdoor shower with hot water too. Kayak & canoe are by rental only- it is not a free amenity- these rentals are not on site-there are rentals nearby which will deliver & pickup. I can give you the information if you'd like to arrange this in advance.

There is an optional linen package available if you don't want to haul all your own- includes European feather beds for all beds, all sheets, comforters, beach towels, bath towels & bath mat, all kitchen towels & paper towels & TP. Linens listed above in the description are only available with the linen package for an additional fee. The indoor woodstove is closed for the summer & fall season. There is a firepit & an outdoor woodstove. Please note that Rt 302 is seconds away and very close to getting everywhere. During daytime you can hear quiet hum of traffic but at night it is very quiet. Traffic sounds like the ocean waves (no kidding) and does not obstruct sounds of birds or wildlife. Seldom heard are sirens or voices!

There is an amusement park about 10 minutes away which features bumper cars, bungee jumping, speedway racing, all kinds of games & fun & in the winter is also a tubing park! outlet shopping is also very close - about 35 min to either Freeport Maine or N Conway New Hampshire. Lots of rock climbing at Cathedral ledge in N Conway NH. Hiking, canoeing, kayaking, sailboats etc as this is in the Lakes region of Maine. Very fun authentic Mississippi style paddle boat 2 minutes away on Long Lake.

Crooked Cottage

August 13, 2012

Nice cottage, well furnished and neat. Outside area very nice to relax around firepit or to walk to river's edge. Also very private with only one adjacent neighbor on the opposite side of a very large privacy screen

Cozy cabin in the pines

August 1, 2012

A great spot for a quiet get-away. Best of all, the dog can come, too. My husband and I loved morning coffee on the front deck watching the river flow. The hummingbirds are a delight, and, in fact, we were inspired to install our own feeders at home. All in all, it was a wonderful week that will long be remembered.

FANTASTIC - 2nd year in a row

August 24, 2011

Love this cottage - away from it all & only 2 minutes to Naples. If you want to be away & close to the Lakes Region, then Crooked Cottage is for you. Great kitchen, cosy living (w/ cable & DSL), awesome property on Crooked River, excellent eating w/i minutes & a perfect cottage area... Location, location, location.

Get Away Experience

We had a nice relaxing get away. Brought bikes and all sorts of games, but just laid around and enjoyed the peace and quiet. And walked over to the ice cream stand!

Serene Getaway

June 25, 2008

This was my fourth year staying at Crooked Cottage. My two Beagles and I absolutely love the tranquility and simpleness of the cottage life. My dogs and I enjoy a swim in the river or just laying around in the hammocks. There is a feeling of being in the woods alone and yet the security of civilization being only a minute away. The cottage is comfortable and cool. The fragrance of the woods, the vision of the quiet river flowing peacefully by the back yard, the smell of hamburgers on the grill or breakfast on the stove in the kitchen, coffee on the front porch in the morning, the shade, the sun, the gentle breeze - all help to make my stay so relaxing and restful. And oh, the hummingbirds are absolutely delightful! The cottage is cute and cozy with all the amenities to make it comfortable and easy and yet still have the feel of camping. The outside shower is unbeleivable! The hot tub in evening is a perfect way to end the day. Can't wait until I return again (and again, and again,...).

Absolutely ADORABLE

March 24, 2007

OK this description is apt! The owner told us the cottage is small but sleeps 5 in 2 bedrooms & that is correct. It was better than described in the listing! Complete right down to a waffle maker the place was charming. Decorated in Maine rustic style with moose & pine cones- the beds were all furnished with feather beds- which I had never slept on before!! Nice touch. All linens were pretty new & all in great shape. Quiet neighbor (there is only one) since they live in another state & we never saw them. We woudl go back again- we had 2 adults & 2 kids with us. Place is perfect for families or couples alike. You'll be happy at how you feel far away but you can get anywhere quickly- you have to take teh River Queen- Mississippi kind of paddle boat on Long Lake- about a 2 minute drive.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

We loved Crooked Cottage. Aug 2006 week . We had a 7 yr old with us who had a great time splashing around on the small private beach- it really is just a 1 minute walk for easy access- Crooked Cottage was elevated above the water which made for nice evening camp fires! The place was spotless & had everythign the owner said and then some! We found a box of outdoor toys & water toys for kids which our kid loved. There is only 1 nearby neighbor who we did not see at all & lots of space with no traffic for our child to ride the bike. We found the place small as we knew it was and charming & indeed "adorable" as the owner called it. We'd definitely go back again.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Are you right on the water?
A: Yes, we are waterfront with easy access on the Crooked River. You can paddle right from the back door to Brandy Pond, Songo River, long Lake and Sebago Lake. If you paddle to Long Lake, it is a 2 minute drive back! The Crooked River is definitely crooked but at the end if you paddle to either Brandy Pond or Long Lake, you can ride your bike home!
Q: What is the max number of guests allowed?
A: We prefer no more than 4 but will accept 5 if the 5th is a child (it is a twin top bunk over a double bottom).
Q: How close to activities?
A: You can walk to the Naples boardwalk, a few restaurants, country frozen custard stand, minutes to a fun park, antiquing, Portland, mountains all a very close drive or walk
Q: Canoe or kayak/ jet ski/ boat rentals?
A: You can rent less than 5 minutes from the cottage. Kayaks and canoes are delivered and picked up right at the door
Q: What is the neighborhood like?
A: We have one close neighbor and seldom hear anything from them as the outdoor activities are on the other side of their property and away from Crooked Cottage. There is a very tall privacy fence on only that side which blocks any view of the house. We seldom see or hear anything. Other than that, it is a private road with no through traffic. We find we get complete privacy and so do our guests
Q: Early departure refunds if we have to leave early?
A: We do not refund for any early departures for any reason.
Q: How does cleaning work at the end of our stay?
A: We can keep the rate lower by allowing our guests to do their own check-out cleaning. If you opt for us to have cleaners come in at the end of your stay there is $100 fee taken from your security deposit and you must inform us when you make your reservation so we can arrange for the cleaners schedule.. If you opt to do your own, you have an additional 2 hours for check out (12 pm check out instead of 10am check out) and there is a check list to follow. It must be in "check-in" clean condition for the next guests. We have never had to keep the cleaning deposit from any of our guests who opted to do their own cleaning.
