Thomas Pond in South Casco and Raymond is only minutes from Sebago Lake. It's much, much smaller than the big lake, yet large enough to provide great boating and fishing. The mood on Thomas Pond is relaxed. In fact, this is where Nathaniel Hawthorne, the famous 19th century author of The Scarlet ...
Only twenty-two miles northwest of Portland and 2 1/2 hours from Boston, you'll find a two-for-one special for lakefront property buyers in the Sebago Lakes Region.

Sebago Lake is Maine's second largest lake, with water so pure that it provides drinking water to the greater Portland area. Before you head out on the lake, you should stop by the Good Life Market in Raymond, a one-stop shop, and grab a picnic lunch. It's located right on the beaten path at 1297...

If you were spending a little vacation time in Maine this Memorial Day weekend and were fortunate enough to spend it at a camp or cottage on Sebago Lake, you know what I mean when I say that for some lakefront property buyers only a big lake will do.  And when you're in this neck of the woods "bi...

Acclaimed Maine author Richard Russo described Maine as a serious place masquerading as a summer paradise. How perfect a description.Mainers must put up with a lot to live and work here - a high cost of living, high taxes, a paucity of good paying jobs and long, harsh winters of often mythic prop...

The big question that I have for you today, dear readers, might seem trite. But please indulge me. Will granite countertops make living at the lake more enjoyable? The bigger question is: Does a vacation home here in Maine have to have all the conveniences and lavishness of one's year round home ...

In a blog post on April 14 I questioned the timing of a legal action taken by a jetski owner who was challenging the state's right to prohibit jetskis on a particular lake. At that time I said that he was kicking a sleeping dog that might just turn around and bite him. I said this because I sense...

As a listing agent I often ask myself "What were the sellers thinking when they built this house?"Often times bright, sharp and savvy people will build a home to their individual tastes and singular specifications never thinking that someday they might want to sell. Now, those of you who don't ca...
