Why Hal Stansfield chose Acton
This property adjoins property that was originally purchased by a family member in 1935, when the entire lake area was still pastureland. This cottage was built by another family member, and passed to the current owner when the original owner passed away. The entire property encompassing two cottages and about 1 acre of land has been in the same family since 1935. It is now in the 4th generation of owners, and the desire of all is to maintain the property in its current useable state for many years to come.
What makes this Cabin unique
As a vacation location, it is ideal. 2 hour drive to Boston, an hour drive to the seacoast at Wells, York, or Portland, 2 hour drive to the White Mountains of New Hampshire. An easy day trip to Acadia National Park. The best fishing on the lake is right off our dock. Enjoy the calling of the Loons at night, the cool, breezy nights, and misty mornings.

Our stay was the perfect getaway. The lake is beautiful and our dog just can't get enough of the water. We will definitely be back!
A great place to disconnect and relax. Stayed July15-22 2017
Rustic, cozy traditional lake camp - exactly as advertised. Lots of noise/fireworks on our first night (Saturday) and then things dialed down. The loons were the loudest noise for the rest of the week but there is something about that sound, at 3 a.m. when you're in you're bed, that you can't get enough of.
Lake is clean and warm. Spent hours floating out there, watching sunsets. Wish the fishing was a little better but that's not a reflection on the camp and maybe more a reflection on the fishermen than the lake!
This is the perfect place to disconnect for a week and relax. (Although there is good wifi throughout the camp and in the yard.)
Stove/microwave/refrig and charcoal grill, a good chopping knife and pots and pans. We only ate one meal out all week. Beware, though, a place like this makes you hungry. I think my family of four went through about $400 in food in a week!
It's not fancy but, for us, it was just what the doctor prescribed. And the price was right! Highly recommend.
Beautiful! July 1- 8, 2017
Just got back from a week at this gem, we loved it, cant wait to return. It's exactly as described, lake is beautiful, neighbors are very friendly. This is going to be our Family getaway from now on, already booked for next year.
Thank you so much for your comments. We're looking forward to working with you in the future.
Beautiful rustic get away camp on cleanest lake I can recall and I swim constantly. Owners perfect!
See above -got carried away with property description. Wonderful get away!
Bridget, we're glad you had a good time. Hope to see you again next year!
Peace and quiet, comfortable.
Rented 7/30-8/6/16, just my husband and me. We've rented on many lakes all over Maine. Wilson Lake water is clean, bottom is a mix of sand, rocks,moss, tall weeds but not bothersome-water shoes came in handy. We brought kayaks and spent most of our time on the lake.Cabin is cozy, everything is there that you would need.The queen bed was very comfy, the porch was wonderful, the breeze was heavenly.Loons were a welcomed sight and sound, saw an eagle swoop down for a fish. Owner Joanna was next door at the main house for most of our stay and was very helpful. We ate Teds 3 times for dinner and Mels Raspberry Patch once for breakfast. Went to Willeys and Iron Tail Saloon for wings and beers. Willeys is more family friendly. All good. Shopped at Hannefords for groceries. Check out Mardens on a rainy day - they have EVERYTHING. We picked blueberries at Blueberry Hill. Its a nice ride from the cabin. All that we wanted to do was within 20 miles.It's a great location., and the quiet on the lake was just what we needed. We hope to return again.
My wife and two kids had a great time last week. And received our full deposit back while still driving home! The teenager took the bedroom and my 10 year old daughter colonized the front porch space to sleep in. The camp has a great feel to it. A converted boxcar with exposed structure, cool nooks, nails for hanging things up where needed. Right on the lake, but with a screen of trees for privacy. Plenty of pots/pans, etc. for cooking. Great location on a lake, but close enough to seacoast. Fishing ok for smallmouth at dusk. (No avoiding the jet skis and water-skiers, fireworks, and ATVs, alas, but the noise ended at 10:00. If the loons could handle it so could we.) We loved it -- the sun rose behind us and we watched the sunshine move towards us across the lake every morning. Lovely. We canoed and swam every day, walked about the lake, and my son ran his 3+ miles per day. We ate great -- close enough to seacoast to get soft-shell lobsta and steamers. Close enough to NH lake district to explore there as well.
