“Sebasco Harbor Resort”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

I first experienced Sebasco Estates as a kid and it was such a great experience I've returned with my wife and daughter. The staff are exceptional and were so nice at the golf course and the restaurant. The course is beautiful and the lobster rolls at the restaurant are the best I've had this summer. Golf and lobster rolls will now be an annual event on my daughter's birthday!

Dear ‘pgs02’:

Thank you for returning to Sebasco after so many years – although many things have changed, I hope you especially enjoyed all the things that haven’t!

We look forward to your annual trip for golf and lobster rolls (could there be anything better?)…

All the best,

Our stay at Sebasco Harbor Resort was top-notch all the way. We stayed in the Harbor Village East accommodations which were clean and beautifully decorated. The room had all the comforts of home+ which made for a comfortable stay. Each morning we enjoyed our coffee on the patio overlooking Sebasco Bay.
The staff was friendly and worked well together to provide their very best service. Meals in both restaurants, The Pilot House and The Ledges Pub, were delicious! Our compliments go out to the Chef and team.
We will definitely make this Resort a yearly destination and highly recommend it.

We decided to spend a week at Sebasco Harbor resort. It seemed like there was a lot to do. Looked like it had a nice pool as well....restaurant on the premises, etc. Our room was clean, and had a fridge, sink, and microwave, plus a nice little balcony with two chairs. There were three of us in the room, so that was a little inconvenient. What we miss are lounge chairs, it would be nice to have some handy. The only ones we have encountered are at the pool, which is a little bit of a walk away from our room.
They have a neat little bowling alley (from 1939) which appears to have never been resurfaced, but that goes along with the old "campy" builiding that houses it, along with a few other games. We tried the horseshoes (I told you this was old fashioned), but one was broken. We played croquet, but there was a missing stake, and we had to set up some of the wickets. We also played golf, but had not brought our own clubs, so that cost $120 for clubs, balls, cart, etc. There is a kayak tour, but that is for an extra fee.
We tried the special "Blueberry Pancake Breakfast" our first morning here. Family of three, about $45. It was disappointing at best. The resort could not control the breeze that cooled of the food before you got to your table, but they could make better pancakes, especially if it's the specialty. They also should have servers manning the buffet tables, as we watched a child reach her hands into the blueberries to scoop up a two fisted handful.
If you don't like the food at their two restaurants (chicken tenders are the frozen sort), and don't like the prices, there are only a couple of other choices nearby. One we were going to try, but left after walking in and seeing their brunch choices sitting on a counter with flies crawling all over the food with a staffer standing there, not paying any attention. The other choices are about a 15 minute drive. If you want more of a selection, then you have to drive into Bath or Brunswick. We have been afraid to try their more upscale Pilot House restaurant, as we are wary of the quality of the food, after trying the food at the Ledges, and the Pancake Breakfast.
We probably will not come to Sebasco Harbor again, as we have found it to be expensive for what you really are getting.

We thank the reviewer for taking the time to offer these comments. We want every experience to be special and it looks like we fell short with this family. Unfortunately, we can’t seem to identify who this was and we hope the guest will respond to this posting so we can discuss their stay.

We appreciate the kind comments about housekeeping and we will pass then along.

Many of our cottages have decks large enough for lounge chairs but most balconies with our individual hotel rooms and suites do not. We should have brought a third chair for the balcony but wish we had a request from the guest.

The Quarterdeck, which houses our bowling alleys and other games, is one of our more popular features. The alleys get refinished regularly, but they get a lot of traffic during the course of the year. We’re proud of the “campy” tone around the resort and the old fashioned game offerings that are a step back in time. Most parents who come here appreciate unplugging their children from modern day electronics and watching them play ping pong or one of our classic pinball machines.

As for golf, we’ve not found a single resort in New England as affordable as Sebasco. We offer free golf clinics, a regulation sized practice course, free use of the range and putting green, and a free weekly junior golf outing. Thousands of beginners have learned the game here over the years and we are proud of that but there are some costs associated with playing on our signature course.

The Sunday morning Blueberry Pancake Breakfast on the pool lawn beside Sebasco Harbor has been a tradition here since the 60’s. Guests come in by boat from all over Casco Bay to join our guests at the resort for this event. Elbert has been at the grill making those blueberry pancakes for over a decade and those returning guests look forward to enjoying them. We have four to six servers constantly manning and replenishing the buffet, which features an extensive variety of breakfast items, but we do allow the guests to serve themselves.

As for our restaurants, both the Ledges and the Pilot House get rave trip advisor reviews from most of our guests but we are not always perfect. However, there are five other restaurants close by and over three dozen more in nearby Bath. I’m not sure which of the local nearby received the negative comment above but I wish this guest had given us another opportunity to please them at one of our restaurants.

The Main Lodge is our original inn building and a classic, which opened in 1930. With views of the harbor, golf course and village green, we have many guests who come back every year to the same inn room for the same experience and love the large screened in porch with the beautiful rocking chairs. This guest didn’t stay there so it is hard to understand the comment.

I’m certainly hoping this guest will call or write us. We reach out to every guest for feedback after their stay but haven’t heard from anyone with these comments.

The drive from NY to Sebasco was a beautiful start to an amazing 4 day stay in the 4 bedroom cottage. Each room had a private bathroom, there was an huge common living room and the room we gathered most in was the screened in porch. The kitchen was large enough to accommodate all our foods & snacks & our morning coffee and buffets. The activities were endless and you could participate in any or all OR none. We had an amazingly, relaxing time. Just perfect to catch up with our family and friends !!

Room Tip: Beautiful views from Harborside, The lighthouse and the 10 bedroom cottage next to the spa

My family of 5 stayed for a week in the captain's cottage at Sebasco Harbor Resort. Overall very good experience. It was like having your own cottage without the cost and commitment of ownership. The recreation center with the 1939 (according to staff) candle stick bowling was an enjoyable experience my kids with never forget. Thank you!

Green Features: Housekeeping was mediocre. The 2 improvements I would suggest to improve the experience would be to update the cottage and hire better housekeeping that actually clean rooms. At $450/night I expect clean updated rooms.

Dear ‘Phillip H’:

Our sincere thanks for staying with us last week and for noting that overall it was a good experience! The Quarterdeck Recreation Center certainly is a fun place to ‘go back in time’ and enjoy great family games and bowling.

I am very sorry that our housekeeping was ‘mediocre’ – we strive to be great each and every day so it is disappointing that it didn’t happen during your stay – my apologies.
We hope that you return in the future – thank you again for staying with us and sharing your views on TripAdvisor.

Dear 'ErikJSO':

Thank you for your review on TripAdvisor and for staying with us this summer. Maine's largest outdoor saltwater pool certainly is fun - thank you also for noting the beauty of the grounds.

We pride ourselves on consistency in our two restaurants, so I'm sorry that you didn't feel as though the portions were large enough in the pub.

We hope to see you again if your travels take you to Maine in the future!

My family gathered at Sebasco Harbor Resort the first week in July 2014 to celebrate my daughter's wedding. I cannot say enough about this place. The hospitality is certainly top on their list. The staff was friendly, greeting you where ever you went and always ready to help.
The food was outstanding. We arrived a few days prior to the wedding and enjoyed delicious meals at the both the Ledges and the Pilot House. The view is phenomenal. The accommodations were reflective of "Old World Charm". We had a balcony room over looking the water. The room was very clean and the king sized bed was very comfortable. The screened porch in the Main Lodge was a favored spot to gather. Some of our guest preferred a more modern look for accommodations and chose to stay in the rooms at Harbor View. There were varied accommodations to suit every ones needs. There were also all types of activities for all age groups. The paddle boats and canoes provided some relaxing time on the water, while the younger set preferred the "Rec Room". Golf, kayaking and paddle boating were also available. A children's camp also provided additional activities such as face painting and T-shirt dyeing. We were also delighted to have some wonderful Fireworks. These were some of the best I have seen in some time. We were there to celebrate a wedding and I would be remiss if I didn't mention the wonderful job the wedding planner, Justine, did. She was on top of all the festivities and made sure everything went off without any issues. The rehearsal dinner took place at "The Clipper. It was the perfect setting for a New England Clambake. The wedding reception was held in the Cornelius Room. This room was set beautifully and I must mention that the food was very good. The guests at the wedding all complimented us on the venue, food and the staff,
What more can we ask for then a venue that provided us with great family time and a spectacular wedding celebration. These memories will be with us forever.

Room Tip: For a beautiful view, chose a room with a balcony overlooking the water.

Dear Terri-

Thank you so much for your kind and gracious words, both on TripAdvisor and the letter you sent to Sebasco. Our Team appreciates the feedback more than you know and for you to take the time to share your memories of your daughter’s wedding, means so much to a small-family owned and operated resort!

I am so glad you enjoyed the fireworks – we went a bit ‘above and beyond’ this year to help celebrate Phippsburg’s 200th birthday – it was quite spectacular and the rain lifted just in time.

We look forward to seeing you and your family again soon – they certainly know how to put the ‘fun’ into a destination wedding!

All the best,
Michael Lynch
