The Camp is situated on a three acre wooded site on Metcalf Point in Rattlesnake Cove at the foot of Rattlesnake mountain. There is three hundred feet of lake frontage.
Although in a secluded location, the Camp is only two hours from Boston and closer to the Maine coast. Shopping, restaurants and theaters are only a short drive away. There is an abundance of wildlife, particularly birds. Loons nest in the cove and are seen and heard daily. There are two buildings so guests and kids have plenty of living room.

The Perkins family lives in nearby Center Sandwich the village closest to Camp Wickasee. John is a School librarian and runs an antiquarian bookshop in the summer. Anne runs a craft business. We have lived in Sandwich full time since we married in 1975. John opens, closes and maintains the Camp.
The Camp has been in the family since 1899. We did a lot of work on the property when we were first married.
We particularly like canoeing down into a cove filled with water lilies, reading on the porch and stargazing on the dock.
