Editor’s Review of Sebasco Harbor Resort
North of Portland, the long stretches of sandy beach found in southern Maine is gone, replaced by rocky shores, grooved and roughened by the endless battering of surf and wind. This is the rugged Maine coast that has lured fishermen, shipbuilders and artists to its shores for centuries. As soon as you pull off Route 1 onto one of those peninsulas that jut into the Atlantic like fingers on a glove, surrounded by the salty sea, you realize you're in for a treat.
'This is certainly true when you drive up to Sebasco Harbor Resort, perfectly set at the end of one of those peninsulas, overlooking the great expanse of ocean. The 600-acre retreat is truly a large playground for families. The reason why you meet people from all over
North America who return to Sebasco year after year to get their dose of New England tranquility topped with a good dose of lobster and chowder. The view alone is worth the price of admission, looking out over the rocky shores past lobstermen in boats picking up their traps to pine-studded islands and then the wide open Atlantic. Yet, it's the following category, family activities, that truly separates Sebasco from the rest of the pack. less

The mix of accommodations at Sebasco include houses along the shore, ideally suited for family reunions, cottages in the woods, rooms in the Main Lodge and the two-story Harbor Village, even rooms in the black-and-white Light House. We stayed in the second story of the Harbor Village, newer than the Main Lodge rooms, with a balcony overlooking the wildflower garden and the harbor in the distance.
The spacious two-room suite had a large king-sized bed for the parents and a pullout queen-size bed in the second room. Each room had their own bathroom. The master bedroom had a shower, Jacuzzi tub and tiled floors. The bathroom in the kids room had a second shower. The second room also had a kitchen with refrigerator, microwave, toaster and coffee maker, great for having breakfast in the room or on the balcony each morning. Each room also had flatscreen TVs, a fireplace and desks with free WiFi. The warm tones of the room were welcoming and the breeze coming off the water was all we needed for air conditioning.
