About Patricia Watson
My husband and I bought this property in 1990 when our children were young. Over the years, it has been the place of relaxation, solitude and great memories for our family. It is a truly special place.
Patricia Watson purchased this House in 1990
Why Patricia Watson chose Sweden
The cottage is situated in a cove on an acre of land. It is very private because of the distance between the cottages and the lake itself has fewer than 50 cottages. We are miles from the nearest highway, so you never hear traffic sounds. We have several return tenants, love our house as much as we do.
What makes this House unique
There are loons on the lake, sometimes with babies, and you can hear their haunting calls in the evening. We are on the southern side of the pond, so the house has beautiful sunsets, and boast one of the best views of the lake. We also have a great gradual sandy beach, which is perfect for small children.

We loved our stay, it was quiet..relaxing. the cottage was great , had everything you could want or need. Gated to have to leave !
Thank you for your kind words! We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your vacation! Hope you'll consider returning next summer.
A wonderful cozy camp
What a lovely time we had. We planned on an end if summer week at the lake and had an Autumn getaway instead. The weather was cool and breezy, downright windy at times so we spent much of our time indoors. The Camp is well appointed with comfortable furniture , lots of good books , puzzles and entertainment for those less beachy days. I snoozed in the hammock while my husband fished from the canoe. The loons were entertaining and we did get a glimpse of the Bald Eagle. We also heard but didn't see the Ravens. We are at Macks Place in Bridgeton where pretty much everything they offer has a gluten free option. Quite delicious. I will definitely be returning in the future!
This was our 2nd year going to the cottage. We leave feeling very blessed. It really takes you away from everything. In the morning we like to sit outside and look over the pond. It is so serene. The only sound you might hear are the loons.
The cottage is clean, cozy and has all you would need. Pat we are very grateful to you for sharing your cottage with us.
We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. The cry of the loons is one of the special things about Stearns Pond. Seeing the loon chicks ride on their parent's back is also wonderful. Hope you will return again next summer.
Piece of Heaven on Earth
Your cottage was so much more than expected. It was cute, clean and well maintained. The beds were comfortable and the cottage had many extra amenities that made it nice for good days and if it was a rainy day. It was very peaceful and quiet.
The water was crystal clear, which we all loved. My dog Meadow, played with the ducks and chipmunks all week. We fed the hummingbirds and went to Remy's for regular bird food. We did see and hear the loons. The area had many trails to walk with our dog. It was a perfect vacation for my dog as well as us.
We absolutely loved our stay!!! We would definitely like to return. Thank you for sharing a little piece of heaven on earth.
