Whether you are seeking adventure or relaxation, we have it all - and more!
While no one can guarantee the weather, summers in Maine can be magical! Almost never too hot or too cold, Maine summer weather makes all types of outdoor activities even more enjoyable. It is a perfect time for walking around, going on boating excursions, or even just for lounging around and taking in the beautiful scenery that surrounds you. If you have young children, you want a vacation spot that caters specifically to families. When you choose a Maine resort that has an abundance of activities to keep the little ones busy during the daytime, you and your spouse have ample downtime during which you can relax and enjoy some alone time. Of all Maine family resorts at which you can choose from during your family vacation, we genuinely believe that Sebasco Harbor Resort is the best. We offer you everything that you and your family could possibly want or need for the vacation of a lifetime in one breathtaking, convenient, relaxing – and exciting — location.
Do you have young children? Parents Magazine featured Sebasco Harbor Resort as one of the 10 Best Beach Resorts for Families1. One of the reasons why our resort made the short list included our Camp Merritt program. Our day program offers plenty of great camp activities to keep children ages 5-10 busy and entertained, such as hiking up Merritt Mountain, golf and tennis clinics, live animal demonstrations that make learning about Maine’s unique wildlife fun, scavenger hunts for the whole family, pirate adventures, Maine lobstering demonstrations and blueberry picking/exploration expeditions. Not only is it a great way for the kids to have fun and explore, they also get the opportunity to bond with other children who take part in the camp. And because so many families choose to come back year after year, they might very well end up making lifelong friends!
Lots of kid friendly activities at Sebasco Harbor ResortIn addition to the daily excursions offered by Camp Merritt, we offer plenty of fun family activities that the whole family can take part in. Family Golf gives you an opportunity to introduce your kids to the game of golf – either on our 9-hole course or on our 3-hole Lake Course. Our Family Campfire Sing-a-long (complete with S’mores) is always a vacation highlight. If you prefer spending time on the open water, our Maine Lobstering & Fishing Cruise teaches you about the daily lives of Maine lobstermen and fishermen while cruising through local fishing villages. This adventure is uniquely a Maine experience, and it is a great way to learn something new while creating lifelong memories. Our Parent/Child Kayak Introduction lesson will teach you the basic paddle strokes and rescues in the safety of our saltwater pool and will prepare you for our family Guided Kayak Excursions which take place most days during the summer at 9:00 am and at 1:00 pm. You and your children will bond as you paddle alongside harbor seals, ospreys, eagles and a variety of other wildlife.
When the little ones are gone for the afternoon, you can take advantage of our luxurious Fairwinds Spa. Recognized by the Spa Index Guide in 2011 as one of the Best of Family Spas in Maine2, our full-service spa will pamper you as you listen to the serene, relaxing sounds of the ocean. From aromatic facials, therapeutic massages, and pampering pedicures to restorative body treatments, you can enjoy one of our many signature spa treatments that use only the finest organic ingredients. No matter which treatment you choose, you will leave feeling completely rejuvenated!
In addition to our wonderful resort amenities, our Pure Maine Accommodations (designed especially for small or large families) are equally as impressive! Sebasco Harbor Resort offers Maine resort cottages, rooms in our classic Main Lodge, family suites, and more. Many of our rooms have spectacular oceanfront views and we have two great restaurants on premises; one that offers a children’s menu your kids will actually like, and one that is perfect for a romantic evening without the kids! Ask us about our affordable Modified American Plan (MAP); a great value that includes a full breakfast and dinner each day.
When you stay at Sebasco Harbor Resort, you will discover that it is possible to have a relaxing vacation with your children, and make it a wonderful, memorable experience for everyone!
