We loved it!

June 2, 2015

My husband and I loved the lake house and Swanlake. The house included all the amenities necessary for an enjoyable and stress free stay. The deck and easy/private beach access were great – we spent many hours on the deck, dock, and lake. We didn’t need/want to go anywhere else but Belfast, Camden, and Bar Harbor are all within easy driving distance. Looking forward to future stays!

Nice place, good value

August 27, 2013

The cottage is in excellent condition. The owners live 200 feet away and were right on tap. When I asked where I could get a propane tank refill, he brought one over and installed it instantly. the water is good for small kids with a slow drop-off in depth. Not deep enough for bigger kids. The only negative is there is terrible phone and no internet connection. The location is one of the best on the lake. But if connection isn't important, this is a great spot

Graduation gift deserved

July 2, 2013

I gave my 18 year old daughter the choice of Cancun or this house on the lake. She chose the house to celebrate with family. We all had a great time. Everything you needed besides cloths and food was all there. We could not have asked for a better vacation going again next year.

First time renting

June 23, 2013

This house has everything you will need, including kayaks for use on the lake. The upstairs master bedroom has a comfortable bed and there is more than enough space to spread out as the kitchen / sunroom / dining and family rooms are all very open to each other. Plus the Brown's are fantastic hosts! They were very attentive to our needs without being intrusive. We opened the season by coming in early June which made for some very variable weather but there are plenty of indoor things to do in the area. Our last day was the best weather with the lake looking like glass for the whole morning. We paddled all the way to the state park (about 2 miles each way) and only came across one other boat on the lake during the whole trip. Getting out on the lake in the early morning is your best bet to keep from battling the winds that come up later in the day.

Beautiful Relaxing Vacation

August 22, 2011

We stayed at this lake house for a family vacation with our children and grandchildren. The area offers something for everyone. The boys went golfing while the girls went to the many art shops in Belfast. We also visited the Penobscot Bridge and Observatory, very nice, and while we were there the kids explored Fort Knox. The area was also great for my training for a 10k that I have in the future. Sunsets at the lake house were just beautiful.

Morning Lake

September 13, 2010

We spent a week on Swan Lake and were very happy with the cottage. The view of the lake in the morning was beautiful and sitting on the porch with a glass of wine watching the sunset on the water was outstanding. It has everything that you need for a relaxing vacation - we're used to a more secluded spot, but even with the neighbors close by, you get a fairly good feeling of privacy. We really enjoyed sitting on the deck reading. Loved Belfast - interesting walking tour and be sure to visit Youngs Lobster Pound - BYOB and sit outside at night to see the lights of Belfast - what more could you want!
