About the property

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 that has been 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!

Waterfront Camp on Sebec Lake Maine
average rating of 5.0 based on 18 reviews

Impecably clean, peaceful, all ammenities needed/wanted available. Wonderful week in Sebec.

  • 5 of 5

There's a good deal I could say about this week on Sebec Lake, and I'll try to share the highlights of a perfect relaxing week. Now, Joe (and Hillary) are deserving of a good deal of the credit, but I'd be amiss by not mentioning their choice of a cleaning staff should also be credited, and if you don't mind me saying so (and even if you do), God, too, played his part as well. As noted, the camp couldn't have been neater nor cleaner - that's important to me! And no necessary kitchen implement was wanting. All big points for the Carusos!!!

The weather was perfect the entire stay. As the fog and mist burned of the mirror-like lake each morning, the foliage on the south side glowed while reflected in the water. Big points for God here. I'd credit Joe, but I just can't do that, now can I? Early morning proved to be an excellent time to grab a canoe paddle as the sun hit the northern shore. Wow!!!!

Value? This was quite the bargain particularly considering my wife and I shared the expense with our daughter and family. I believe this was after peak rental season, the place was deserted both on and off the lake - I saw one pontoon boat only, no neighbors, only some squirrels, chipmunks, and a lone loon. Sad to say not a nibble on the line nor moose in the surrounding environs. But the foliage was peak or close. We'll give God a small ding here, I suspect He can handle it.!?!?!

Finally, let me say as an upstate New Yorker, should I have ever moved, it would be to upper Maine coast.

So, thanks for sharing this piece of heaven with this old coot and his daughter and family and grandsons ( 4 and 1.5 yrs.) .

Amazing and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This camp is a dream come true. It has everything you could possibly need both inside and outside of it. The available canoe and two one person kayaks were a great bonus. My ten year old son absolutely loved cruising around the cove in the kayak and I loved joining him. The spot is beautiful, with good swimming, a lovely view and plenty of places to curl up and read and play games. We needed a week away from busy life and this gave us exactly what we needed. Thank you so much!

Lovely, peaceful week on Sebec Lake

  • 5 of 5

Joe's house is very comfortable and clean and was a great place for us to spend our first week in Maine. We enjoyed the kayaks, canoe and fire pit. The kitchen is well equipped with all the basics. The covered porch was a great place to relax and read in the afternoons. While there are other camps close by we were pretty much alone in that part of the lake during the week. We only saw 2 other families on either side of the lake.

The lake itself is beautiful and Chris caught lots of fish including a very large small mouth bass.

This is our second year coming to Joe and Hillarys camp. We truly enjoy every minute on sebec lake and the surrounding towns. The camp is very clean and has a nice kitchen equipped with everything (pots/pans etc) that you would need! Can't wait until next year!

Great little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and another couple enjoyed our stay at Ridge View Cottage. The weather wasn't the greatest but we kept ourselves entertained. The cottage has all of the basic needs. We even left a lobster cracker and pick for the next occupants.

Tranquil lake getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great camp with beautiful views of the lake, especially as the mist rolls over it as the sun rises in the morning. Clean and comfortable for two or for the whole family. Conveniently located for hiking in Baxter State Park or Borestone Mountain.
