Lake Regions of Maine
The Greater Sebago Lakes Region
Stretching from the Maine Turnpike in the east to the New Hampshire border in the west and from the Standish/Cornish area in the south to the Sunday River/Bethel area in the north, the Greater Sebago Lakes Region offers a complete package to vacationers and relocators alike - a multitude of lakes and ponds, a variety of amenities and attractions, and easy accessibility from the Boston area and points south. For over one hundred years the Greater Sebago Lakes Region has been the premier destination for those who want to enjoy clean recreational water, lake and mountain vistas, and four season fun in Maine.
The lakes and ponds in this region come in all shapes and sizes. More than fifty have a surface area over 100 acres. From the quaintness of Coffee Pond at 106 acres to the mighty Sebago at over 30,000 acres, this region has a body of water to fit every criteria. The main attraction is Sebago Lake, with its great size and depth, and its two sisters, Brandy Pond and Long Lake. These interconnected bodies of water form our own version of an inland waterway stretching 35 miles from Harrison at the north end of Long Lake to Standish at the southern end of Sebago Lake. In between are the 11 miles of Long Lake, the Naples Causeway with its swing bridge, Brandy Pond and the Songo River, the old wooden locks on the Songo and, finally, entry into the northern portion of Sebago Lake. This stretch of water provides some of the best recreational boating that Maine has to offer. Other notable lakes in the area include Thompson Lake in Otisfield, Poland and Oxford, Kezar Lake in Lovell, Highland Lake and Moose Pond in Bridgton, Pleasant Lake in Casco and Otisfield, and Panther Pond in Raymond.
Aside from the water related activities, the Greater Sebago Lake Region offers a wide variety of other things to do depending on the season including golf, skiing, snowmobiling, hiking, hunting, horseback riding, antiquing, summer theater, historic house tours, museums, and shopping. There are many interesting places to stay in the area with an especially good selection of B&Bs. Area cuisine runs the gamut from the very modest to dining at its very best. The city of Portland, Maine's largest city, is an hour or less away providing an assortment of cultural and entertainment activities as well as historic buildings to tour and some of the best restaurants in the country. Portland also serves as the gateway to the Casco Bay Islands and the Maine seacoast. The White Mountains of New Hampshire are just to the west with North Conway, a mecca for outlet shoppers, acting as the entry point to all that this nearby region has to offer.
