Waterfront Camp on Sebec Lake Maine


Property Details

Updated: Jul 29, 2016
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 7-8

Welcome to Ridge View Cottage!

This cottage has a large covered porch providing outdoor dining and lounging for family and friends. It has both a gas grill and picnic table. Indoors, there is a glassed in porch with a sitting area and a queen sized futon for extra sleeping. The living room is equipped with a TV and DVD player. There is a half bath with laundry on the first floor, along with a kitchen is recently renovated and well-stocked. The upstairs has one bedroom with a queen bed, one bedroom with a double bed, and one loft area with a twin bed. The upstairs bathroom has also recently been remodeled and a walk-in shower was added. This wonderful vacation home sleeps 6 -8 comfortably.

The view is spectacular: glorious sunrises in the morning, and beautiful sunsets in the evening. Enjoy both from the full length glassed-in porch that faces east to west and out to Sebec Lake. There's also an outside fire-pit for cozy evening fires and outdoor relaxation (wood is not provided). Boats and kayaks are available nearby for rent, as well as hiking trails and public lands.

The water frontage is clear, with a pebble beach area. A dock site is also available for those who choose to bring their own boat. WiFi is also available for those who want to stay connected! (But if you want to 'unplug' for the week - that's fine too!)

Ridge View Cottage sits at the edge of Sebec Lake in the heart of the Maine wilderness. While quiet and rural, you’re never too far from civilization: Dover-Foxcroft is 15 minutes away, and Bangor is an hour’s drive South-East. We’re also close to Gulf Hagas, Mt. Katahdin/Baxter State Park, Borestone Mountain, and Greenville. All the peace and quiet of the Maine woods, with the comforts of home!

We do require that there is no smoking, or pets allowed. Thank you!

Great house beside a great lake.

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely and spacious with a nice wrap aound deck. I was thinking that Joe (thw owner) really needs to update his images as the house is way nicer than the photos show. It was well equiped and our family was very comfortable for the whole week. The nice gas grill and two lake kayaks was an added bonus. The lake was wonderful and there was a gravel beach access point which made swimming and puting the boats into the lake real easy. Gulf Hagus is a short ride away and a must see for hikers who love waterfalls. We also took an hour horse back ride at Cedar Winds stable which was fun and different. The week was a wonderful break away. Thank you Joe and Hillary (the owners)!

Idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

All-in-all Joe and Hillary's place is one of the most beautiful vacation properties we have ever been to. The beautiful view from the front porch and the gradual slope into the water are incredible. We kayaked until our arms were no longer co-operative and barbecued until we could eat no more. We spent 3 nights at Ridge View Cottage and it was utterly refreshing. Life in Sebec Village is slow and a visual treat no matter which direction you turn. Joe and Hillary are responsive and helpful hosts. We are very happy with our experience.

A perfect escape from city life

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is incredible. We had a great time drinking coffee on the porch while watching the sunrise over the lake, kayaking with loons and bald eagles, napping in the hammock and hiking all over central Maine. The cottage itself was cozy and came with everything we needed - especially the kitchen, which was better equipped than my own at home. Truly a haven away from the big city, and we can't wait to come back!

50th birthday getaway

  • 5 of 5

Wow... is Maine beautiful. The rental is a beautiful space to get away from the hustle of life. Awesome porches! We loved the screened in section as well as the open porch, enjoying every meal on them. We were celebrating my husbands 50th by hiking Maine so sitting by the fire pit in the evenings and kayaking on non-hiking days was lovely. The space is great! The kitchen is open and welcoming...might need a few more pans with lids to cook with. We hiked Gulf Hagus and Katahdin and found the drive distance fine. I wish we had more time to enjoy the area. Apple trees, apple trees, apple trees... they were every where. We stopped on the highway and picked some. YUM.

Perfect Getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

This was a great rental for a short getaway after the labor day weekend. Lots of space, clean, and all the comforts of home while at the same time being away from it all. Close to Dover-Foxcroft and Milo for food and shopping and it gets you in the region of Gulf of Haggis and Baxter State Park.

The place is near the end of the lake, so there is not a ton of boat traffic and it was generally pretty quite. The fire pit and screened in porch were among our favorite features, but wi-fi and gas grill very nice as well. All of the dishes and linens you need are right on hand along with a full kitchen.

The owner was very helpful and good about communicating and addressing questions and concerns. I would stay there again and recommend it to anyhow how was looking for this type of getaway.
