Had a wonderful time at this truly charming cottage. Decorated with care and thoughtful necessities. I spent each morning on the dock watching the sun rise over the beautiful lake. My husband caught a small mouth bass while kayaking. While out canoeing we saw loons, a great egret and a grey heron. Around the camp we enjoyed eastern wood peewees, american goldfinch, hummingbirds, hairy woodpeckers and black capped chickadees. A wonderful retreat.
My wife and I had a tremendous week of enjoyment and relaxation at the Acorn cottage.
Every morning we'd wake up and do a couple of miles walking the lake and exploring. Back for big breakfast, then onto the lake and canoe. It's a good size lake but many times it seemed like we were the only ones on it! Very peaceful. Back on land we would lunch on the dock, or park the lounge chairs in the lake and sit reading and sunning. Always with a good beer; many great craft breweries in the area.
The cottage was great and very homey with some fine "touches". The outdoor patio with the fireplace and BBQing was ideal and a nice view of the lake. The outdoor shower was a big hit and used often. Actually, now that I think of it,we never turned on the inside shower. The kitchen was the right size for the place and all worked fine. We needed time off from the rat race..
This was good. Jen & Jamie are good. This was a good place to get away!
Awe-thank you so much for your kind words! So pleased that you enjoyed the cottage as much as we do. Hope to meet up again some day until then -our very best to you both!
Wonderful week away
When my husband and I got to the house we were overwhelmed with how beautiful it was. The charming decor and relaxing atmosphere was absolutely perfect for our honeymoon week. We are so glad we were able to relax and unwind without the business of the city were used to. Coming from Salem, Ma were used to the average hustle of people around us and city sounds. To hear almost nothing but the sounds of dropping acorns and lake boats buzzing by was undeniably the best part of it. We are so grateful to have been given the opportunity to stay at the acorn cottage and look forward to another if not many other stays there in the future!
Great weekend getaway place!
We had such a great time-- the property was adorable and well-equipped, and very comfortable for 4 friends to share. We particularly enjoyed all the gathering spots - the beach area, the dock, and the lawn all down by the lake, and the outdoor patio lounging/dining area, the screened in porch (where we spent most of our time) and the cozy living room and fireplace! All of that made a small cabin feel really spacious! The bedrooms are small but the beds are really comfortable, and we loved having the outdoor shower to use (though the indoor one seemed fine, too). There was plenty of cooking and dining equipment and everything worked well. The lake was lovely and clean, and we loved paddling the inner tubes out to the shared swim platform, and taking the kayak paddling around the lake. Thanks for a great getaway! (and, though we didn't leave the property but once, that one time was to the very convenient Market Basket just a few miles away)
Clean, cozy, rustic house with great location and very nice owners!
Overall the house was perfect! Very clean, lots of cook wear and linens, great fireplace and fire pit outside. the beach area was also great with canoes and kayak. The owners were so nice and helpful - easy to reach and very friendly. The house had a great location too just 10-15min to market basket and liquor store. Overall it was a great vacation and we're already planning a trip back :) 5 stars!
Thank you, we're so glad you enjoyed your stay! We hope to see you again next year!
Wonderful cottage on Swain's!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cozy and wonderfully decorated cottage. The owners made us feel most welcome; the cottage was well appointed and well maintained.
