About The Sirkin Family
We are 4 siblings who grew up spending summers, holidays, ski breaks and many wonderful gatherings of friends and family at this classic New England house. Our mom bought the property when I was a baby. Three of us now live on the West coast and my sister Susannah lives in Boston. She is pictured here between the 2 lovely daughters of our caretaker, Lisa.
The Sirkin Family purchased this Farmhouse in 1961
Why The Sirkin Family chose Acworth
Our parents both have New England roots, on our mother's side going back to the Pilgrims, and our father was born in Vermont. Our dad was a US diplomat and we lived in Washington, DC when our mom went looking for a place to have as a New England base for the family. The property was just what she was looking for; a charming old colonial era house down the end of a dirt road on 100 acres, outside a quaint historic town, with a gorgeous lake and skiing nearby.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Peace and tranquility, rustic antique charm, lovely private swimming pond, birch trees, nearby lake, hiking, skiing, and boating.

Sports & Adventure Activities
Had such a great time!
Our whole group enjoyed the farm so much! Everything was exactly how we wished it would be. Such a nice serene weekend!
Beautiful house, it had everything we needed!
Thank you for the wonderful weekend away! We stayed there with four families and it was great. Big kitchen table and separate area for the kids to play upstairs.
We did all have trouble finding the place, our gps took us to a different address and there isn’t great service in the area, so I would recommend you get solid directions BEFORE you leave!
Great stay with friends!
We rented this home with 10 adults (5 couples), a toddler, and a small dog and were very comfortable. We had a great time! The owner and caretaker were very easily accessible by phone/email for any questions and left detailed information about the house and how to work everything. Despite unusually cold temperatures, we were comfortable inside. The house was well stocked with kitchen supplies, linens, and extra blankets. We’ll definitely consider returning in warmer weather when we can enjoy more of the property!
What a great place!
We are a group of old friends who love to get together, and this was a wonderful place for the eight of us. Plenty of room to all gather - with a lovely large table in the kitchen and a very comfy living room - yet enough privacy, too. Even in mid-October we were able to spend quite a bit of time on the back porch, which has a lovely view and it also very comfortable. The kitchen is extrememly well equipped. This is a comfortable, well-loved and cared for place, and we could feel it as soon as we walked through the front door. Lisa was very accommodating and the info book had everything we needed. This would be a great place any time of year, and we'll be back!
Wonderful Historic Home
Excellent Location with Lots of Privacy. The area is great too with lots to do. One can really unplug and relax on the property. The House is Cozy and unique in it's Layout, the owners are responsive to inquiries and the cleaning staff were very friendly and accomodating. We plan to return again.
This property is wonderful. My family and I loved being there. The mornings are spectacular! We loved having meals together around the farmers table in the spacious kitchen. The kitchen was a great place for the family to come together. Our dog loved the screened in back porch and we all absolutely loved the swimming pond. The house was clean and filled with really cool antiques. I would absolutely rent this property again. It is a very special home that is well taken care of. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
