About the owner: In New England, many families own what they refer to as a 'camp'. A retreat from whatever east coast drudgery is foisted upon them during the work week. Having grown up in Maine, the tradition was deeply rooted in my understanding of adulthood. After years of longing, I finally found a spot less than 2 hours from my transplant home in Chicago. The place we all now call 'the camp!'.
Why the Owner Chose Buchanan: We chose the Buchanan cottage for it's quaint New England feel. Cedar shakes, a big screen porch and short skip to the warm swimming lake. The big back yard for games, green lawn and dirt roads, make it feel like a true New England lake camp. We added the little studio cottage in back, to give my boy and family kiddos a 'camp' to call their own. Something I always wanted as a child.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Peace and quiet. Nature walks. Long bike trails. Large open fire pit. Warm lake swimming. Association beach. Canoeing.
Nearby we have Horseback Riding. Golfing. Wine Tastings, Breweries Tours.
Year-round sports including Cross Country and Downhill Skiing, Ice skating within easy travel distance. The cozy fireplace makes the camp a perfect place for a summer or winter getaway.
