Living in Maine allows for coastal living or lake life- the best of both worlds.

I’m featuring our clients’ favorite lakes: Sebago, Long Lake, and Brandi Pond.

Sebago Lake

With 6,800 feet of shoreline, Sebago Lake is the largest and most well-known lake in Maine. It spans through the towns of Casco, Naples, Raymond, Sebago, Standish, Windham, Cumberland, Maine.  Available activities include boating, fishing, and BBQing. Sebago has other activities for summer fun: Seacoast Fun Park, an amusement park in nearby Windham,  and Point Sebago’s Championship golf course.

Long Lake

Long Lake, in the Sebago Lakes region, is an 11-mile lake ranging from Naples, Maine to Harrison, Maine. Fresh, clear water, coves, and rocky shores, Long Lake has one of the most scenic views of the mountains and calm waters. It is connected to Sebago Lake by the Songo River and has a steam powered river boat, The Songo River Queen.  Long Lake is also usually less crowded than Sebago Lake.  Restaurants speckle the edge of the Lake for a scenic dining experience.

Brandi Pond

Nearby Brandi Pond, in Naples is a much-loved spot for Mainers and visitors alike. With 740 acres of water for everyone, it is the passageway between Sebago Lake and Long Lake.  You can find exciting summer fun like parasailing, windsurfing and seaplane rides.   This little pond has lots of fish to make great sport of fishing, too.

Square Pond

Western York County boasts its own hidden gem: Square Pond, a spring-fed lake on the border between Shapleigh and Acton. Square Pond is known for its great fishing and off the beaten path summer fun across 877 acres of water. This lake features a water ski course, a fixture on the lake since the 1960s. Square Pond also has its own improvement association.

Maine’s Lakes region provides oodles of summer fun, but winter allows for just as much outdoor activity. Snowmobiling and ice fishing on the frozen lakes and ponds are as popular as the multiple ski areas nearby.  Read more about winter fun here.
