About Roxanne Moore

Kelly & Roxanne Moore have summered on Sebago Lake for 14 years. We loved the lake life so much that we built our dream home here in 2011. Recently we purchased the charming cottage next door and are excited to have it available to family and friends so they too can enjoy this gorgeous lake, and make some lasting memories...

Roxanne Moore purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Roxanne Moore chose Standish

This 'Twin Rocks' cottage is right on the lake, has a beach, with sun and perfect spot for swimming, boating, kayaking, fishing (salmon,bass,trout), water skiing, and jet skiing. The water is crystal clear and deep water for mooring any size boat. Certainly a must see...!

What makes this cottage unique

A Simple Thing in Life: Take a precious moment, take some valuable time and make some 'Lasting Memories' to share and reflect back on...!

Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

Superb!! The ultimate lakefront experience. The owners have done a splendid job of restoring this quaint cottage to the original.....perhaps even better than the original....Fully equipped and functional kitchen. MBR has a wonderful mattress and full lakefront view. Lovely breezes from the lake... Cozy indoor and outdoor seating.

Lake water is crystal clear and perfect for swimming....if you like a refreshing dip. :)

Owner is attentive, friendly and ready to assist if necessary.

Owner's Response: AWWWW... Thank you for the lovely words about our "dollhouse". We enjoyed meeting you and hope to see you again next summer. I know we talked about the eagle that you didn't see. Yesterday morning I watched him pick a fish out of the water and fly back towards my picture windows, I thought he was coming in. He perched in the pine tree between us and the cottage. Amazing sight. You would have loved to see that !!! Have safe travels, Roxanne

Comfortable, immaculate vacation abode in an ideal lakeside location!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed a refreshing week of activities on/in the waters of Sebago!! The cottage is very comfortable, well-equipped, and meticulously maintained*. Situated approximately 20 meters from the shoreline, the cottage provides beautiful views up the length of Jordan Bay...to survey boating activities, and the ever-changing 'moods' of the nearby hills, as well as the more distant White Mountains!! The cool, clear Sebago water allowed frequent refreshing swims and sight-seeing kayak tours of the shoreline. This quiet, relaxing neighborhood is conveniently located only 2 to 3 km from the shopping and restaurant district of N. Windham.

We are really happy that we discovered "Twin Rocks".... to form lasting memories with kids and grand-daughter!! -Bruce & Betsy

* One suggestion- for "safety" purposes- would be to install a railing next to the front-porch steps to avoid a possible tumble to the left-hand (downhill) side.

Wonderful cottage in best location!

  • 5 of 5

Our second summer on Sebago - family of three with an almost two year old loved this location and cottage. Roxanne was fantastic and ensured we had everything we needed. We planned this visit around a family reunion and were able to easily get to other cottages in Windham/Standish via boat or walking. The dock with the small rocky beach was great for a toddler (in a life jacket). No stairs to navigate in the house for a toddler, but we kept a close eye on the outside stairs and it was totally doable. We were able to host family for beautiful lakeside visits and the incredible sunset.

We loved the low-key "campish" feel of the cottage, but it is SO clean and comfortable - not an easy balance to strike, but this is it....we know Sebago well and wouldn't hesitate to return to Twin Rocks! It truly is the best.

Beautiful lake views

  • 5 of 5

Roxanne and Kelly thought of everything/we absolutely loved our week on Sebago Lake . The cottage is clean , roomy , and the location is perfect . We were able to do days trips up the coast of Maine with ease. The property is well maintained and easy to find . The views of the sunrises and sunsets over the lake are breathtaking..Our children spent many hours on the private dock fishing and catching smallmouth bass. Twin Rocks Cottage is a great place to slow down, relax and make memories...

Twin Rocks is a charmingly comfortable lakeside cottage. It's perfect spot to enjoy smaller groups of family and friends or just kick back and enjoy some quiet moments. Roxanne is a great host!

The title is very accurate. A nice sandy beach with easy access; gorgeous sunsets; loons!

  • 5 of 5

This Sebago Lake rental is a little gem. Cozy, Maine 1920s camp design with authentic waterfront camp feeling; but, at the same time, it is immaculately clean, well-maintained, has wonderfully easy access via a sandy beach into the water. Even toddlers would be able to enjoy the sand & water's edge (as long as a rare big-time windy/stormy day wasn't making waves that look like the ocean...but those are exciting days to sit out on the glassed-in/screened porch and just watch all the action on the lake). Well-stocked kitchen & the grill is conveniently right outside back door. Room a/c in living room & front bedroom were welcome on days/nights when temps went up over 90 degs. Most rooms also have ceiling fans which help greatly with cooling. Owners Roxanne & Kelly are very welcoming, helpful, have local info, and will go out of their way to help in the out-of-the-ordinary task (they provided support/assistance when my sister & her husband, while they were staying with us, bought a pontoon boat at Richardson's Marina...now that's way and above what you expect your renters to do for you!). At the same time, the owners are not intrusive and get their sense of how much privacy you want from you. Plenty of lawn chairs, beautifully designed campfire ring in nice location between house & beach for quiet summer nights, and we spent/enjoyed spending a lot of time sitting out on the deck that extends just over the beach/water's edge. There's always plenty of boat activity to watch. And mustn't forget the loons...almost every night without fail, we hear loons crying their spiritual cries. And sometimes they're in front of the house during the day; my photographer sister was able one morning to get two incredibly beautiful close-up photos of a loon out on the water...floating in the riffles and then cleaning/preening with wings spread. You should check with the owners if you have problems with knees and stairs...I'm in the middle of physical therapy for a badly injured knee caused by two different falls (no cartilage left between tibia & femur) and I had to limit how many times/day I climbed up the stairs to parking lot. Stairs from house to beach much easier. Stairs to parking lot are doable, but not too many times each day. We've had a wonderful two weeks staying here. Thank you so much Roxanne & Kelly for having such a wonderful summer home on the very edge of Sebago Lake and sharing it with all of us who love to come to Maine for a summer vacation.

Have a wonderful rest of the summer and enjoy Harpswell. :)
