Maine native. Grew up on a lake in Maine and wanted to recreate my childhood for my children.

David purchased this cottage in 2007

We put a lot of thought into the location of our vacation home and this is a secret gem. I grew up in Maine and never knew these lakes/ponds existed. Close to EVERYTHING. Beach, Boston, Outlets, Airports, Restaurants, Antiquing, Amusement Parks.... we were looking for a property on a private lake (no campgrounds, no public boat launch). Water quality was a major priority (everyone comments on how crystal clear it is) and we had to be on the East shoreline for the fantastic Maine Sunsets (you have direct sunshine for more of the day). Being situated in the middle of the lake provides views of the entire lake so you can always keep an eye on your kids. A smaller lake means the water never gets too choppy and is typically warmer than a large lake.

The views are spectacular. There's nothing like waking up, sitting on the deck with a coffee and listening to the wind and the loons... well, taking a nap in the hammock (listening to the wind and loons) is pretty special too.

RELAXING RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
Living in coastal RI, my family thought I was crazy for booking a lakeside retreat as our vacation spot. They quickly learned what a gem this place is. It was everything we needed as a family to rest and regroup from the stresses of everyday life. The house was well stocked with anything we could have possibly needed, and was very clean upon our arrival.We all enjoyed the kayaks and the paddle board.The evening visits from a pair of owls kept us entertained at our campfire. It was all we had hoped for and more for our lakeside vacation. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes, the owls are new this year. They're very active and super fun to watch. They have a nest up in our back acre. We think there are about 3 babies.

You were the perfect guests. You're welcome back any time. Please keep us in mind for your future trips to Maine.

A FANTASTIC SOUTHERN MAINE RENTAL!!

  • 5 of 5
We traveled from Florida and enjoyed every minute of our time at this family friendly lakefront home. It was very clean and had everything you needed. The kids enjoyed kayaking the pond and fishing from the dock. The sunsets were breathtaking (especially from the hammock).The large fire pit was wonderful as family came to visit from Boston and N.H. We enjoyed trips to York Beach, Kennebunk and even took on a live play of Grease! Travel Route 1 and you will find plenty of restaurants, shops and movie theaters. The owners are very friendly and give you personal access to contact them for any questions you may have. I would recommend this property to a family or couples looking for a quiet getaway.

WE COULD NOT HAVE PICKED A MORE PERFECT VACATION !

  • 5 of 5
First of all, this house is on the most beautiful, pristine lake. Of course, being there during peak foliage in New England certainly added to the beauty! The house is so cute and homey. It was well equipped with everything that we needed ( except laundry facilities). My entire family came on Saturday as a reunion. We had so much fun fishing, canoeing,playing basketball, playing red light/ green light in the field, making s`mores at the fire pit, barbecuing, etc. I plan to return again and hopefully stay longer. On a 10/10 scale I rate this place 11!

CLEAN & COZY PRIVATE LAKESIDE COTTAGE

Clean & cozy private lakeside cottage
  • 5 of 5
I just recently spent a week at this lakeside cottage with my family. We loved the 1/2 mile drive down the private dirt road to get to the house. The lake is perfection and the backyard is set up so you can enjoy roasting marshmallows over a firepit, taking a nap in the hammock, or enjoying a lazy kayak or paddle board around the lake. It's located within 30 minutes of the Kennebunkport and Ogunquit beaches.

We had a fantastic experience. The owner is really nice, very organized and accessible for any questions. I highly recommend renting this house if you are looking to rent a fun lake house with your family!

BRIGHT AND SUNNY COTTAGE ON SWAN POND

  • 5 of 5
Just spent a wonderful and relaxing week at the cottage on Swan Pond. Cottage was very bright, clean and beautifully decorated. Very nice amenities including a wonderful open kitchen with lovely views of the lake. Location is perfect for fishing, kayaking and swimming in a very clean lake. Local attractions were ideal for keeping a family entertained.
I would absolutely recommend this cottage to any family/friends and look forward to a return ourselves sometime in the near future.

GORGEOUS SETTING, GREAT HOUSE...TERRIFIC VACATION

  • 5 of 5
The house met all our expectations and more, extremely comfortable with a great kitchen for prepping food and enjoying family meals. Swan Pond was even more beautiful than the photos and description. The water access allowed us to spend the majority of our time swimming, canoeing, kayaking, using the long-board.....Accommodated eight of us easily, the youngest (13 years) and the oldest (64 years) only had good things to say about the stay. We used it for our family of four as a base to travel to York and Windham to visit family -- both about 30 minutes away -- and to have room to host family who could stay overnight. We would recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable house in a picture-perfect setting. The owner was pleasant and helpful, he and his family obviously love their home and have set it up to take advantage of the terrific setting.
