About Kevin Lapierre

Our family has owned this house on the lake since it was built. Our relatives have lived on this cove for almost 100 years.

Kevin Lapierre purchased this Cottage in 2015

Why Kevin Lapierre chose Acton

This is one of the most relaxing vacations you can take. Kids can play all day on the beach and lake, swin, tube, fish and play. Parents can watch the sunset while relaxing from the patio or lake front. Lots of family games to play.

What makes this Cottage unique

Private family location. Not many properties have a clear lake front with sandy beach sitting area and dock. One of kind with the view.

                                                              Clean and organized inside and out.  Beds are in new condition and super comfortable.  Great spot!

                                                              Great location on the lake... Accommodations Very Nice

                                                              Nice to unplug from real word and enjoy some time away for rest and relaxation. Had a romantic weekend. Dogs had so much fun on beach. Evening fire on the beach was nice touch. Place was clean and accommodating. Spacious. Loved the porch and swing. Thank you so much. We will bring the family next time.

                                                              Cottage with great potential

                                                              Linda A.

                                                              This house was beautiful. The lake was clean and close. There were some minor down falls. We couldnt tell if the linens were clean, we ended up washing them again to b sure. Nothing was organized. The place needed a huge cleaning. The owners left their things out, shoes, clothes, open food. I would have thought that this would have been put away somewhere. The AC upstairs didnt work that great so it was hot up there. The basement had everything you could think of, however it was not organized so it was hard to find things. The neighbors had a dog that had free roam of everywhere including our yard, this made it difficult for my dogs. Overall this place has so much to offer with a little TLC. We made the time to clean, wash lines, and vacuum so our stay here was comfortable.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              First, I am sorry we didn't see this review earlier. We would have immediately responded. We had no idea you had issues that affected your stay. The good news is that we don't disagree with many of the items you mention and have made many changes for 2017. 2015 and 2016 were our first years renting the cottage and we did have some issues. Here is what is different now:

                                                              - We added two sheds. One in back to store beach equipment and one in front to store misc tools and typical garage items. This has allowed for a wide open basement with extra play area and sitting area for guests.

                                                              -We changed maid service. The previous company was not executing to the level we wanted. The new company has much improved the cleanliness and experience.

                                                              -The upstairs AC is window unit based. One works great and the other did not. We are in the process of changing that our for 2018.

                                                              -Not sure what to say about neighbors dog. The only dog we know of is an other, very friendly lab that has been there for over 10 years and we have never had an issue with other dogs or their dog.

                                                              -We have also added boat storage for canoe, fishing equipment cabinet and organizer, new beach chairs and a TV downstairs in basement for kids...
