More about Sebasco Harbor Resort
The Highs and the Lows of Sebasco, circa August 2007
-Newest lodgng rooms are spaciious and clean; the rest is bleh.
-Nice Spa Setting - hot tub at 5pm!
-Harbor views nice
-Some very nice, hardworking and eager-to-please staff taking care of rooms, table service, etc.
-Restaurant service was fine.
-Salmon on the menu was very nicely prepared.
-The front office, expecially the front Desk can be very rude and of no help. It would be comical if it wern't so shocking.
-Booking activities is a nightmare.
-Policy contradictions everywhere. You cannot get a straight story from the Front Desk. It was The Topic of conversation at the Pool.
-Speaking of the pool; nice location, but looking way too sad with low maintenance very apparent.
-The shower at the pool was a joke.
-For a family friendly place, no lifeguard at the pool. Yes there was a sign, but you ARE a family vacation spot.
-We booked vacation including our dog. They put us in a room. Next day they tried to kick us out for having the dog. They tried to shuttle us into a nasty old cabin to 'keep us', The front Desk approach and attitude was one of denial and a real affront to us.
Sebasco screams out for new ownership with a fresh perspective and a real notion of the word 'Resort'. Again, location is very nice and it could be world class.
Highly recommended for couples!
My wife an I decided to try Sebasco for an overnight escape. We know that Sebasco has a reputation for being a family resort -- but we felt the off-season might be a great time for a quiet retreat for the two of us. We could not have picked a better location. The resort's location is perfect for a mini-vacation. We enjoyed the room -- we stayed in a spa suite. What a great view -- and the amenities such as the fireplace, the flatscreen TV robes -- and an i-pod stereo dock/charger were nice touches. The food in both the Pilot House and the small pub was excellent. Great staff throughout -- everyone was very friendly and attentive. The hot tub overlooking the ocean is a nice touch. We highly recommend Sebasco Harbor Resort to any couple looking for a relaxing (and romantic) getaway!
First time visitor to Sebasco Resort, and loved our 3 night stay. The resort has everything for a relaxful visit - harbor, pool, golf, boat cruise, games for kids, etc. The regular lodge rooms are in the original building of the resort (about 70 years old), but the rooms seemed updated recently. We chose to upgrade our room for a room in a former lighthouse and loved the room and the view of the harbor and ocean. No AC in any of the rooms, but we didn't need it in September. Mild days and cool nights. The food in the resturant on the property was excellent and not overpriced. A beautiful ocean beach is about 15 minutes away. Sebasco Resort is a great choice for a relaxful and stressfree vacation.
My Husband's Business Trip / The Highlight of Our Summer!!!
For the third year in a row we had the great pleasure of staying at Sebasco. The first two years we stayed in the lodge and this past summer we had a "suite" in their newest building. The lodge was comfortable and cozy - always clean and enough space for our 2 small children and us. The suites were really nice - note we booked the smaller one - 1 huge room with a kitchenette and table. We loved sitting out on the balcony and enjoyed the sunset while the kids fell asleep. And sleep soundly they did thanks to the awesome kids camp they attended during the day. We have also enjoyed several trips out on the resort's flat-bottomed boat the Ruth. Our son still remembers the Pirate Cruise from 2 years ago! The work-out cottage is well equipped and with windows on 2 sides catches a nice breeze and lends a wonderful view of resort compound. The food at both the Pilot House and Ledge Pub is very good - the onion rings are worth extra time on the treadmill! The first year we stayed our daughter was an infant and of course an early riser. I have very fond memories pushing her in our stoller around the "loop" past the cottages and golf course. We have made it a yearly ritual of going for our early morning walks now - much easier with a jogging stroller. My husband and his colleagues were happy with the meeting facilities and the resort's atmosphere is very conducive for the families (who wouldn't miss tagging along) to catch-up on the past year. Needless to say we love Sebasco and look forward to going back again next year!
What a place!
After working in Maine 17 years ago - I returned for the first time since for a weeks vacation with my family. Sebasco is a fanatastic place to stay to experience a Maine vacation. The web site undersells the resort significantly - we stayed in one of the new harbour view appartments which have stunning views of the water front. The accomodation was comfortable, well equipped and clean - although there is so much to do there is no time to spend in the rooms. The staff were extemely helpful, polite and spot-on with recommendations of where to go offsite. The restaurant was excellent - we decided to not take the meal programme but did eat breakfast most mornings. My wife used the new spa which was superb and again has views to die for. We also tried sea kayaking with Corky and his team which was a real treat. The location is great and you are only 10 mins from Popham beach which is just fantastic. This is a real family resort which was a great experience which we will be booking for next year. Many thanks!!!
Stayed in a lighthouse
We had a room in the lighthouse on the ground floor which was very spacious and comfortable with fabulous views over the bay. Reception staff were extremely helpful and friendly.
The Pilot House Restaurant was a sad disappointment. The service was slow (ionly about 6 other diners in, so no excuse for tardy service) When we got the food it was undercooked and barely warm. Our waitress did not respond to complaint about it - she just took our plates away and didn't say a word. The dinner cost over $100 for two indluding a bottle of wine so it was hardly cheap.
Next night we dined at the Ledges Pub 9 situated below the Pilot House) and the experience could not have been more different. The service was cheerful and helpful and the food was very good and hot. Hard to beleive that there should be such a difference.
We stayed there after Labor Day and no other dining options are availiable in the vicinity so I would not stay yjere again unless assured of the quality of the restaurant.
We would rate this as a four star resort - but alas the Pilot House let it down.
Stayed for two nights for a work-related conference--my husband tagged along and we stayed in the Early Bird cottage. Since this was a work-related trip, I didn't get a choice in room, and didn't realize until I got there that there seems to be a vast difference depending on where you stay (the Main Lodge, for example, looked much more in line with what I was expecting from a "resort").
That said, the room was clean and quiet, but outdated and really small. Part of a cottage with maybe ten rooms and a common room with fireplace and deck. The TV didn't work properly and made strange noises all night even when turned off (to the point that we had to unplug it to get some sleep!).
The staff was VERY nice and friendly, and the on site pub had good food with reasonable prices and HUGE portions. The location is great (right on the water), and I'm sure there are a lot more activities going on once summer is in full swing.
All in all, it was charming, but I'd spring for one of the rooms in the Main Lodge (or even the townhouses that I eyed with envy). Would be a great place for a family vacation a la Dirty Dancing. My husband and I would consider coming back with friends. (Also, make sure to bring some snacks--we arrived late and everything was closed and not a vending machine for probably ten miles (seriously); thankfully, the kitchen cranked out a couple of sandwiches for us.)
We stayed at the resort in late August. The reservation staff was very unpleasant and not helpful. Our room was very small in the main lodge but we were quickly offered an upgrade to the family suite which was very nice!
My two children loved the pool but I was disappointed that there was no lifeguard. The location of the pool was beautiful but it did need some repairs and paint. Sections of the pool actually looked rusty.
The food was good but expensive. I would recommend this resort but be sure you budget a considerable amount of money for meals.
Way over priced seem to cater to sailboats looking for a mooring and shower
Great location but be warned way off the beaten path. Property for the most part is dated with the exception of some recent buildings. Service in the restaurant is slow and if you stay in the Lighthouse watch your head on the stairways. They should have red tape on the headers because they are so low. I know it's an old building but come on have at least 6 foot of headroom. I think we go boned. We paid $288 discounted for one night at the end of the season, Sept 2nd, look up cold.
Perfect Anniversary Weekend!
We were looking for the perfect getaway from Boston without the kids to celebrate our 10 year anniversary and found an absolute Gem! Situated on a "finger" of Maine, the setting was absolutely beautiful. The resort is very serene, friendly, and comfortable. We love the outdoors and got our share with the beautiful 9 hole golf course with challenging greens - and to cap it off, a bald eagle was flying overhead at the 3rd tee! We did a 2 mile hike just around the corner from the resort to a beautiful beach. We loved the 90 min. boat ride from Captain Phil aboard the Ruth around the harbor and in and out of really neat inlets and basins - his knowledge of the area and stories of lobstering were fascinating. The rooms were very nice with a fireplace as the heater (my husband thought that was very cool), and the food was delicious - from the tuna melt lunch to the salmon dinner. We look forward to returning and will probably even bring the kids next time. They will love the candlepin bowling and other fun games at the "Quarterdeck" on site.
Sebasco resort - wedding!
My friend of 24 years are getting married in Sebasco resort Sept/Oct 2007. Haven't been to USA at all myself, I have no idea where I could stay. The price of the resort accommodation is far too expensive for me. I wonder if anyone know I could get cheap accommodation? The resort is near Brunswick, Maine.
Thank you for your great help in advance. I would really need a cheap accommodation as I don't plan to travel 10 hours flight just going to the wedding! So my budget needs to be able to stretch longer.:)

Re: Sebasco resort - wedding!
There is Spinney's GuestHouse in Phippsburg...not far from Sebasco. Also take a look at hiddenmtn.com, I think she is open into October.
And Sebasco is closer to Bath, Maine then to Brunswick.....there are some motels in Bath including the Fairhaven Inn.
