"What a fantastic week! This house is beautiful. Pictures don't do it justice! It was so clean and comfortable with many amentities. We stayed with another family, kids ranging in ages from 4-15.
There is something for everyone.
We enjoyed days spent relaxing by the beautiful lake. There were no shortage of stuff to do! Fishing, boating and swimming made the days great!
Ken, the owner left us very detailed information about any questions we might have and made himself available to answer any questions we had.
We highly recommend this house and are looking forward to returning next year!!"

"Our vacation was wonderful and mainly due to the accommodations. Prior to our vacation the owners was so helpful and responded to questions immediately. We knew exactly what to bring, which wasn't much because everything is there except the lining and towels. The home is huge for a lake rental and although we had 2 days of rain there was plenty of space and lots to do for everyone from the toddlers to the grandparents. The game room is great!
The beach is clean and sort of blocked from the neighbors which makes it seem very private and there was not a lot of traffic in the lake which was nice for paddling around. Fishing was excellent.
We saw plenty of wildlife, but nothing that had me concerned about the little ones playing outside. In fact they were very excited to see some deer through the windows on one of our rainy days.
Clean, bright, and large enough for our crew of 14. I am already booked for next year!"

"My husband and I just returned from a week on the water in this beautiful home, spectacular views. We are a boating family and bring our 26ft boat with us. The dock provided with rental is well kept, deep water and simple perfect. The house was super clean and a bit unusual with the upper and lower living levels, but great for older children/teens. The Holland Family were wonderful to work with and we highly recommend this property."

"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!"
