“Classic rustic Maine cabins (emphasis on rustic) right on Lake Sebago”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2011

Beautiful spot on Lake Sebago - the "campus" of cabins is literaly right on the water set amid the trees. Docks with canoe/kayaks, picnic tables, grills and fire-pits all right there and ready to go. The pro's are definitely the location and the scenery - canoeing, fishing off the docks etc. The con's are the cabins - built in 1920 or so - cheaply furnished (furniture, towels, linens, kitchen supplies), no A/C (not that you need it but gets damp when it rains) and in need of repair (holes in screens, missing screens). Great for what it is (i.e.,rustic cabins on the lake in Maine) - but if you are looking for a hotel type arrangement/quality you are going to be disappointed.

Lots of fun stuff to see/do in the area - all out door oriented (boating, hiking, fishing) and easy access to Freeport (Lands End and shopping) and Portland (try 555 in the Art District if you are a foodie). Challlenge we found in the area is that the hotel choicdes seem to be limited - super high end (Migis Lodge at $1K/night for a famiy of 4), generic looking motels off the lake or cabin type arrangements.

We came over to Ireland to stay and had a fabulous time! Thank you to Deborah, (and to Blaine for the lasso lessons for the kids) Lovely, friendly, amusing, lady made our stay just perfect. The cottages are comfortable and have everything you need. Exactly the right standards for the price we paid and the lake was really warm and pleasant to swim or boat on. The neighbours in the other cottages were great - lots of interesting chat! We'll go back again for a longer stay.

We needed a place to stay to retrieve our daughter from her sleep-away camp located nearby and this was certainly the best of the bunch. Situated just above Sebago Lake, it's actually a nice spot. It's also located on Route 302, but being that it's Maine, this was really not a problem. The owner keeps the place as pretty and clean as possible with potted flowers all around. We stayed in the "fishbowl" room which was extremely clean, but overpriced! There were no curtains to pull shut, so at night you sure did feel like a fish in a bowl. Also, the guests above us were very loud and we could hear every footstep and word spoken. The continental breakfast was o.k. I enjoyed the old, rustic feel of the place - but would not recommend it to anyone who prefers luxury accommodations. Some of the information on the website may lead you to believe that you could swim there off of the "beach". Truthfully, there is only a small patch of sand that my kids stood on and threw acorns into the lake from, so don't book this inn assuming you can lounge by the water. They do provide kayaks to explore the lake.

If you're looking for a large, charming place with water on 2 sides, great views, a big friendly common room and lovely family pets, this could be for you. Deborah, the proprietor, is super friendly, has been running the show for 26 years, and upgraded us to a better room when it was clear she wasn't going to have a full house this week.

Only knock against this place is that our room was outdated and a little tired ... looked like it could have used a refresh sometime in the last 10 years or so.

Recommend, canoeing and / or kayaking on the lake with the boats and paddles the establishment provides for free. Lots of great waterfowl to see and hear out there!

We enjoyed a long Labor Day weekend in one of the lake cabins. The cabin was just what we expected from the photographs. It was cozy and clean with easy access to the lake. We had our boat in a slip in front and that worked out very well. We enjoyed the fire at night and also using the charcoal grill. We would go back in a minute. The lake makes for a terrific getaway.

Decrepit. Cheap. Hodge-podge furnishings. Paper thin walls. Dirty. Expensive. Cheap breakfast. A total rip-off.

I've stayed twice here, once in the lodge itself and then in the guesthouse next door. I especially enjoy the classic c. 1940s-50s style of the place: simple and rustic, in the down home Maine camp aesthetic. The owners are committed and helpful, and the location on a lake inlet is convenient. It has its own tiny swimming area and a dock, and canoes and kayaks are available to guest for free. It is on a small road, and during the day one hears much sound of motorboats coming and going from the lake, but the nights are peaceful and the local loons will serenade you at dusk and dawn.
It's a great base for seeing other parts of Maine, and as a frequent visitor to the area, I can't think of anywhere else on that side of the big lake I'd rather stay. Breakfast is continental, but if you yearn for ham and eggs and the like, there is Chute's in North Windham, and in Raymond, Danielle's Sebago Diner and great breakfast sandwiches at the Good Life Market, all on Rt. 302 just a short drive away.
