About Amy Milo

My husband and I purchased this home in 2005 as a vacation home. We spent many summers and winter breaks in it and enjoyed every minute. My husband is originally from Maine and all of his family are still in the area. We have moved to a new home in Maine and are not ready to sell our original hilltop home.

Why Amy Milo chose Sebago Lakes Region

My husband's family lives in the area and from the first time I visited, I knew I wanted to spend more time here. The village of Harrison is reminiscent of times gone by with its friendly residents, family-owned restaurants and shops, and small-town feel. It seems every road leads to another lake or pond and the smell of pine trees fills the air.

What makes this house unique

This is a beautiful home in a friendly village with fantastic year-round views of long lake. It sits atop a hill and the minute you enter the front door you feel yourself relax. Swimming and boating are a short walk away, yet the distance allows for peace and quiet from the bustle of the lake. In the winter, our hill provides great sledding in your front yard, gorgeous views of the lake and Mt. Washington, and nearby family-friendly skiing. When the lake freezes, outdoor ice-skating is available on Long Lake. Our radiant-floor heating in the house keeps you warm and toasty while enjoying the snowy view outside.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

I cannot even begin to give sufficient positive feedback regarding our mid-October stay at this location. It was truly a family haven for all of us! We had 6 adults occupying the 4 queen-sized bedrooms and 2 youngsters nestled in the loft futon. The house is very spacious, yet very comfortable and cozy. With the warm, sunny days we even got to take advantage of the roomy deck with beautiful views of the autumn leaves, lake and wildlife (lots of wild turkeys scurrying around). Amy was very responsive to questions prior to our stay, as well as during our stay. Our overall experience has us planning a return as soon as we can!!! Thank you, Amy, for a wonderful week!

Gorgeous Home w/ Gorgeous View

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I with 3 of our friends stayed in the home for a week and were completely satisfied. It had everything we needed and was very nicely decorated. It was centrally located to all the places we wanted to visit on our stay. Amy was very helpful, easy to work with, and was available anytime I needed to reach her for anything, though we had no problems at all while we were there. At one point we thought we might not be able to make our trip, and she assured me it would be no problem with refunding our money. Luckily we didn't have to cancel and had a great time! I would recommend this beautiful home to anyone, and if we ever get lucky enough to come back to the area we will definitely stay there again! Thanks to Amy and her family for sharing their home with us!!

Great rental !

  • 4 of 5

Overall our stay in this house was great.

First, the interactions I had with the owner before our stay was pretty great. Amy is responsive, she answers very quickly to all the questions we had before our arrival. The pictures reflect exactly the reality, bedrooms are spacious and the deck and grill outside are very nice ! The master bedrooms upstairs is huge and the bathroom is gigantic ! The only thing we did not like so much was that the master bedroom upstairs is open on the mezzanine. This can be bothering if you are a group of people and if two of them want to sleep upstairs whereas the others are in the dining/living room talking with the lights on. But, this was not a big deal and it did not impact our overall good experience.

We had an issue during our stay with hot water that was not working in the shower. The owner resolved this issue in less than 2 hours after we reported it. Someone came to repair it while we were away and everything was fine after that. We appreciated this great customer service. We felt that the owner really wanted to please their guests.

I recommend renting this house for families or a group of friends. The location near the Lake (10 minutes walk) is great. We enjoyed relaxing on the little beach close by and running around the lake.

Thanks to Amy and her husband for everything,.We will come back for sure !!

Beautiful views of Long Lake and Shawnee Peak

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our ski weekend at this hilltop A-frame. The home was clean and well maintained. The photos on VRBO don't do it justice. The views are just beautiful and its just a 20 minute ride to skiing at Shawnee Peak. We look forward to returning with our family next year.
