... didn't take long to lose our Florida weather. We had such amazing weather this past week. That is how winter should be everywhere. I was born in the wrong climate and as you probably know by now, I am NOT a fan of cold, snow, ice or any combination of the three. We made a lunch stop in Edgewood, New Jersey at a strip mall complex. There were a few restaurants to choose from including Friendly's, Subway, Papa John's and Popeye's Chicken. We chose Popeye's since we hadn't had a ...
It's that feeling of I must do this now. Heading northbound from Logan Airport in the storm delayed on a bus as it passes 10pm. One bag contains all the warm gear I own or borrowed.

There are some terrific shops in the Commercial Street area. I haven’t checked everything, so there’s always something new to visit. Commercial Street is a unique in that it's part working waterfront, part tourist destination, part business district, part residential area, and part Main St. USA. In a way, Commercial Street is Portland in a nutshell.
On a stroll down Commercial you can see lobster boats, fishing boats, ...

If you love beer this is a place for you. The Great Lost Bear has over seventy plus beer on tap, sixty or so of them being brewed in Maine. I myself wanted to try as many as I could but opted to go with a five ounce tasting sampler of five options. When ordering, you fill out a small card with your five choices. This sampler was $6.25 and well worth the ...

Karen and I had a quiet night at the WalMart in Houlton. We awoke to a foggy overcast morning but the temperature was a nice 14C. We had no problems driving along the Interstate towards Bangor, in fact, Karen drove for about an hour. This was the first time that Karen drove the motorhome on a proper road, with other cars on it. We stopped for lunch at ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sebasco Harbor Resort Sebasco Estates
My husband and I were invited to stay at the Sebasco Harbor Resort as guest. My husband has pancreatic cancer and is unable to get around very much due to swelling in his ankles and legs. The entire staff went above and beyond for our comfort. We were given a room at the Lighthouse which was totally awesome. The view was breath taking to say the very least. Well, since we were on the 3rd floor of the Lighthouse the staff carried my husband wheelchair and all to our room. The delivered our dinner so that we did not have to leave the room. At 7:45P that evening they came back and carried my husband back down and put him on one of their golf carts to take us to the John Arthur Martinez concert. When we got to the Clipper we found that they had set up a special chair for his comfort as well. The entertainment was perfect as we expected.
My wife and I spent three nights at the Sebasco Harbor resort over the 4th of July weekend and enjoyed everything about the resort. Our room was in the main lodge, and it was a nice room with a completely new and very nice bathroom. The grounds are expansive and pleasant, and we had several good meals (don't miss the blueberry pancake breakfast on the lawn.) There seems to be a lot to do there, and we enjoyed renting a sailboat for a few hours.
We would definitely go back - it is an easy drive from Boston and you know you are in Maine!
It has a good location but if you want to visit local attractions it can feel a bit of drive. c 40 minutes to Freeport. At the time of our visit the Hotel appeared to be opening up for the season. The swimming pool was not yet filled. The location is good if you want to escape for a few days as a couple not really family orintated.
Classy But Relaxed
This resort is reminiscent of yesteryear vacations where the kids are safe, each person receives individual attention, and the staff interested in each and every person. The food was good, the accomodations pleasant, and the views of the ocean and nature fascinating.
Sebasco Rocks for a Family Vacation!
Our family went to Sebasco last summer on the Wie Woods golf package and it was just great. The golfing was terrific, the kids got instruction from the pro, our rooms in the lighthouse were spacious. There were lots of kid friendly activities in addition to the golf. We brought three generations of our family and everyone had a great time... In fact, we have reservations for this summer!
Our family thinks of Sebasco Harbor Resort as the place where childhood memories are made. We look forward to our annual vacation at this resort where leisure, exploration and entertainment is plentiful.
I can't wait to go back with my family
I just spent three nights at the Sebasco Resort with a friend. We played a lot of golf on their very nice 9-hole course and enjoyed great food. The Resort is located right on a scenic harbor and has a lighthouse right on the premises. We stayed in the "Bay View" cottage which was a perfect little cottage with, as you might guess, a view of the Bay. They also have a bowling alley which was fun.
I am looking forward to returning next fall with my entire family - the resort is very family friendly. The staff was extremely friendly and the owner was omni-present -- like a cruise director who learned my name and said hi whenever I saw him. Did I mention the food was delicious?
Sebasco Harbor Resort is nestled between the quaint rural villages of Phippsburg and Sebasco Estates and will offer the weary traveler a respite uncomparable in the 'real world'. The peace and tranquility truly affords us the opportunity to contemplate and reflect in quiet solitude. For the energetic, activities are endless, including on property golf, swimming in a salt water pool cove side, sailing, pirate, lobstering and sunset cruises aboard the Ruth, old time Brunswick candle-pin bowling, canoing, kyaking, pier fishing, tide pool exploration, three distinct restaurants(with amazing menus and fantastic desserts) with optional outside dining, bike paths and hiking. Evening murder mystery and USO shows are entertaining. Well organized childrens camp is available daily. The surrounding villages also support the best beach in Maine(Popham) with smooth sand and views of the lighthouses, shopping, rock climbing and lagoon swimming at nearby Reid State Park. Having traveled extensively throughout the south, and well versed on the accomodations of newer southern resorts, I can say that nothing has given our family more of a sense of peace than the removed Sebasco Harbor Resort. Don't choose Sebasco for the newest, most decadent accomodations, as you will be disappointed. Embrase the simplicity and beauty of life at Sebasco, and you will surely not be disappointed. We are three years strong in visiting with our four children, and could not recommend another place more!
My husband and I have stayed at the Sebasco Harbor Resort for the last 3 Labor Day weekends, and it's been wonderful. If you are looking for a place to just sit and watch tv, this isn't the place to be, but, if you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy Maine, then you should definately look into Sebasco. There are a lot of activities to do in and around the resort. There is shopping in Freeport, (about 30 minutes away), there's a sandy beach (Popham- 5 minutes away), restaurants, boating, so much to do. Some of the activities on the resort grounds are free, like shuffleboard, canoeing in the lake, the ring toss (which was much better before they padded the ring).
