Bob Smith - Tam - Entire Staff
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.
The day that we were suppose to leave the staff came back to our room and again carried my husband down the stairs and brought him to the Pilot House for breakfast. The food both at dinner and at breakfast was perfect.
I would rate this Resort 100+++++++ and hope that soon we can go back.
Bob - Tam - Crew ///all perfect and the room again perfect and the food once again perfect.

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!
Memories Made by Maine
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.
This is a peaceful resort that has the just the right recipe for a relaxing vacation. The staff at the resort have the friendly and unassuming disposition you would expect from people of Maine. It's simple hospitality.
Having stayed in a variety of the accommodations offered by the resort, I can attest to the inviting charm and uniqueness of each. Our family of four particularly enjoys the cottages. Each one is situated for privacy with picturesque views of the surrounding grounds and oceanfront. The cottages are very comfortable with all the necessary amenities (some even have large stone fireplaces that are great for cool Maine evenings and toasting marshmallows). All of the cottages are within a short walking distance to the resort's facilities.
The resort offers an array of activities for all ages, but nothing compares to an afternoon at the resort's salt-water pool which is surrounded by the ocean. The buoyancy and healing properties of the salt-water does wonders for the tired and weary.
The resort has excellent restaurants. My family enjoys the restaurant with outside, oceanside dining: this option is relaxing for parents and accommodating for children who just can't sit still.
If you like to plan your vacation days by sticking to a strict regime of activities, then you probably won't enjoy the relaxing, stress free environment at this resort. This is the type of vacation where you don't worry about the time, waiting in line, finding a parking space or losing your children in a crowd. Probably your most difficult decision will be whether to order Maine Blueberry or Moose Tracks ice cream for dessert.
The only thing I regret each year is not being able to stay longer. A trip to Disney couldn't even compete with this resort (so my children tell me).
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?
Best kept secret in Maine
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!
Can't wait until next season
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).
I'm looking forward to our stay next year. OH- and ask for a room in the main lodge with a view of the lake. It's beautiful.
Good food, the rest mediocre
For the money ($200+/night in the main lodge, more for the cabins), I expected MUCH more.
The accomodations in the main lodge were dated, at best. On our first night, we experienced the following: 1)the heat stuck "on", driving the room temperature up to 85 degrees, 2)which caused us to throw the windows open, whereupon we discovered that the screens were missing, which 3) let in the mosquitos, since 4) the drapes would not close completely due to a broken closure mechanism. (In all fairness, once we complained, the heat and the screens were fixed.) However, the shower was fiberglass, the drinking cups were plastic, many of the rooms were small, and the room TV was compact.
I was glad we did not leave a tip for the maid, because, upon checking out, we discovered that a $20/night surcharge had been added to the bill for "gratuities and hotel services!!" I figured this must have covered the "free" coffee and donuts that the golf pro shop places out every morning. Every amenity comes with an extra charge in this at this resort!
On the plus side, all three of the restaurants at the resort provided good food at suprisingly reasonable prices. The setting is very pretty, and the wedding seemed to go off without a hitch.
In conclusion, I would not stay here for a personal vacation spot. Much work needs to be done before Sebasco Harbor can be considered a resort worthy of the prices charged.

We spent a relaxed morning looking out to sea and reading. We explored the local area, stopping at Popham Beach. A beautiful beach which was exactly how we both pictured Maine. We had lunch by the river at Bath, a small ship builder town. We then explored further up the coast to Boothbay. Another relaxed evening at the resort, including some games like ping pong and shuffle board at the resort.
We left Sebasco, stopping at Freeport which to my amusement is also a outlet shopping town (same name as the one at Braintree). We shopped and had lunch here before driving on. We drove back to Boston leaving Maine, going into NH and driving via the coastal road. We made a quick photo stop at Wallis Beach and saw the surfers along the coast who …
We left Jackson, heading East crossing from New Hampshire to Maine. A huge state, which is bigger than the five other states together. We drove past Sebago Lake and then onto Portland where Michelle sampled the local lobster. Lobster is huge here and a massive part of the local economy. There are apparently three million lobster traps off the Maine …

It was a culture shock when we arrived in Old Orchard Beach to walk the old pier where an arcade draws families throughout the summer. It was the Del Mar Fair on steroids!

Our first lobstah roll was consumed (inhaled) at The Lobster Shack at Cape Elizabeth. Oh my, yes it was wonderful and sweet and ...
