As our economy continues to move toward recovery, we at Sebasco we are thrilled to be embarking on a new season of renovation, restoration and revitalization. The past few years have been difficult for many, including Sebasco – but thanks to our loyal guests, and all of the new families who have just recently discovered our resort, we are now moving forward and making some much-anticipated renovations across the property.
Over the past two years we have invested more than 300,000 dollars in the property – including these most recent improvements, which will be completed by opening day this summer, our 84th season.
The Cornelius Ballroom is where we hold many of our grand events, including weddings, banquets, conferences and more. This year it has undergone a floor to ceiling renovation – literally. We refinished the antique oak floors, added new window treatments and wall coverings, and replaced the ceiling, including updated ventilation and new lighting. Every square inch has been renovated to make the space truly grand. In addition to the ballroom, we also renovated the lobby to match with new carpet, wall treatments, paint and classic finishes.
While shiny and new is always fun, here at Sebasco, we also love a little bit of classic charm. So this year we decided to take the old Coveside Cottage and restore it in a new location. The 2-bedroom cottage will be completely remodeled, and now sits lakeside (appropriately named the Lakeside Cottage). It will be ready for occupancy this July.
In addition to the renovations and restorations we completed during the off-season, we’ve also been focusing on revitalizing some of our signature amenities, including our Lighthouse guestrooms, saltwater pool and oceanfront golf course. The lighthouse guest rooms now feature new carpeting, linens, window treatments, and lovely new Maine cottage style furnishings. Our famous outdoor saltwater pool (the largest in Maine) will receive an automatic lift to make it fully handicap accessible. Lastly, but certainly not least, we will replace all of our golf carts with a newly upgraded fleet.
This off-season has certainly been a busy one, what with all the construction and remodeling, but we couldn’t be more excited to open our doors this summer, and welcome back all of our loyal guests who call this place “home away from home.” We’re pleased to offer all of our guests the opportunity to book your vacation to Maine before opening day, May 17th at rates that have remained the same, or even been reduced, over the last few years. This will give you the opportunity to experience the new and improved Sebasco at the same affordable cost. Visit our “Packages and Specials” webpage for value promotions, or give us a call, and we’ll help you plan a dream Maine vacation that fits your family and your budget.
Here’s to a summer filled with sun, sand, ‘lobstah,’ and to a season full of growth and revitalization for all.
