"Absolutely loved this house! 3 couples that have known each other forever rented it together. Expected a cottage, and found it to be a house! Tremendous amount of room. Had everything we needed. Clean, comfortable, beautiful views. The owner was a pleasure to deal with. Had all our meals there, and only went out for ice cream at Alton Bay which was a great place. My buddy loved having his boat feet away at the dock. Enjoyed days on the water, and evenings on the shore. Would love to go back, and highly recommend this rental!"

"the Sugdens cottage are fantastic . The view of the lake and the water is special. We stayed in the first cottage and it was very clean . They added a new dinning table and we cook inside and out on the gas grill a lot when we stay there so that was a plus when we had our family eat inside. We also set a table on the huge dock and have dinner on the Lake. Jack Sugden is more accommodating and was always available if we needed anything. I really enjoy my stay there . The night they had a comic shower we lay down on their comfortable lounge chairs and watch the show from the dock. I kayak a lot while I was there and enjoyed going up the
I really enjoyed my stay at the Sugden's cottages. Jack Sugden was very accommodating. The view of the lake and the mountains are fantastic. I enjoy the lake and kayaking up the Fowler river. The gas grill by the dock, dinning on the dock and watching the meteor shower from the dock was special. We will return next year"

"This is the second year we've come to Swain's Lake and we wondered if it could be possibly be as wonderful as our visit last year. Stepping onto the deck to see the lake was like coming home and when our last day arrived we, again, didn't want to leave. Mary Ann and Ken met us upon arrival to make sure we had everything we needed; they are wonderful, thoughtful hosts! We enjoyed many moments on the upper deck, eating meals, reading, sipping coffee and watching the changing light on the lake. We explored the nooks and crannies of the lake in the kayaks and cooled off by bobbing just off the sandy beach in the warm lake waters. Swains Lake is very clean so you get to see lots of wildlife: loons (our favorites), great blue herons, ducks and geese, hawks and fish darting in the clear waters. Every morning I watched a muskrat make her way along the shore right next to the house leaving a glassy V-shaped wake behind her. The dogs LOVED fetching their toy sticks into the water from the beach and the human swimmers in the family swam across the lake several times. In addition to several Barrington hikes, we took a day trip to Pawtuckaway State Forest and were rewarded with a beautiful hike to the top of North Mountain. Must tries are the Stonehouse Baking company (donuts! bagels!), the Calef Country Store (delicious sandwiches, homemade dog treats and the famous CCS aged cheddar cheese) and Zampa Restaurant. We've already made reservations for two weeks next year!"
