In New England, many families own what they refer to as a 'camp'. A retreat from whatever east coast drudgery is foisted upon them during the work week. Having grown up in Maine, the tradition was deeply rooted in my understanding of adulthood. After years of longing, I finally found a spot less than 2 hours from my transplant home in Chicago. The place we all now call 'the camp!'.
Wendy purchased this cottage in 2008
Why Wendy chose Buchanan
We chose the Buchanan cottage for it's quaint New England feel. Cedar shakes, a big screen porch and short skip to the warm swimming lake. The big back yard for games, green lawn and dirt roads, make it feel like a true New England lake camp. We added the little studio cottage in back, to give my boy and family kiddos a 'camp' to call their own. Something I always wanted as a child.
What makes this cottage unique
Peace and quiet. Nature walks. Long bike trails. Large open fire pit. Warm lake swimming. Association beach. Pedal boating.
Nearby we have Horseback Riding. Golfing. Wine Tastings, Breweries Tours.
Year-round sports including Cross Country and Downhill Skiing, Ice skating within easy travel distance. The cozy fireplace makes the camp a perfect place for a summer or winter getaway.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Stayed at this sweet little cottage with 3 teenagers over spring break. It rained for much of the visit, but that did not bother them one bit. They took full advantage of the DVD collection (all 3 Spiderman movies!), turned on the heater and hung out in the private studio cottage in the back yard with their game system, played with fun lasertag game from the garage, played basketball in the driveway and biked around the lake in the mud.
I snagged a great book from the shelf, took a trip for wine tasting and binge-watched an entire season of the Sopranos on DVD. Best spring break in recent memory. Will visit again for sure!
