Peaceful cabin with exquisite view

October 7, 2014

The view on the lake is pure tranquility, we saw a bald eagle and loons daily. The sounds of the loons are the only noise we heard at times. The cabin is laid out extremely well capturing lake views from all rooms. It's done in a rustic comfortable motif. It entertains easily due to the great layout. Lisa left plenty of towels and the kitchen was well equipped even with all the necessary tools for cooking up live Maine lobsters. Lisa was very accommodating in helping us get settled in with locating a boat ramp that serves the lake. I would love to return to this cabin in the fall again, the colors were gorgeous. Swanville Grocery located just 3 miles from the cabin had an amazing selection of everything we needed. Belfast Maine on the coast was just a 15 minute drive to some excellent restaurants and Bar Harbor was a very aesthetic drive an hour and 20 minutes away.

Heaven on the water.

August 1, 2014

Bring your bathing suit - and not much else, because this fantastic home has it all. The lake is pristine, the private beach sandy, and the beds are comfortable. The house is perfect for our family, with the big bedroom and bath downstairs and two more up, so the adult kids have their own space. There's a country store just a few miles off that's far better than the average, and you're within half an hour of the coast. The lake is quiet - very little boat traffic. The owners are amazingly responsive and helpful. We'd go again.

Best place on the lake!

July 14, 2014

We rented this lake house for the first two weeks in June 2014. It is spacious, extremely clean and cozy! We had a large beautiful private beach with a nice sandy bottom for swimming. We are local residents and love Swan Lake because the water is so clean and great for fishing. Lisa and Mike Tripp are wonderful Landlords! They were very accommodating and they are exceptionally nice people. This house is fully equipped with everything you will need or can think of. I would highly recommend renting this Lake house if it is available! Thank you Lisa and Mike for providing us with such a nice, comfortable, clean rental this year, it was a pleasure to rent from you!

Perfect Lake Cottage!!!!

September 15, 2013

Just returned from spending a week at Lisa & Mikes cottage, truly a small piece of heaven! Ducks, geese, loons and 2 bald eagles throughout the week. This is a well thought out vacation home, everything you could need is here. Beautiful lake and surroundings, excellent private location, but close to everything! The cottage is awesome, a perfect blend of traditional and modern, very comfortable. We will definitely be back!!!

Vacationland at its finest

September 3, 2013

This is our third year in a row staying at Mike and Lisa's cottage. We bring our children and granddaughters every year and have an open invitation for friends and family to visit. Our granddaughters love it and are excited every year to go to the "camp" in Maine, as are we. It really doesn't matter if the weather is warm, cold, sunny or rainy, Mike and Lisa have everything you would need: games, cards, puzzles, books, children's books, toys and floats for the beach, and so much more. We would highly recommend if you have young children or grandchildren and would like to have a relaxing vacation on a lake, think about staying here. You will not regret one single day. Listening to the loons while you are having your morning coffee, watching the bald eagles soar by, kayaking or any boating activity, swimming, toasting marshmallows over the campfire, having a lobster and clam bake makes this a perfect vacation, Thanks Mike and Lisa. See you next year!

Great location

July 19, 2013

This was the second year that my family and I stayed at the cottage. We found it to be as clean and comfortable as we did the first year. Mike and Lisa were very accommodating with any and all issues that we had and always available if needed. The beach is clean and a gradual slop into the lake which makes it save for small children. It would be nice to have a small dock from which to fish with my Grandsons.

Amazing week we had! The peace and beauty of this location was just what we were looking for. Swan Lake has everything that you will need to enjoy your stay. We felt like we were home as soon as we walked in. So warm and comfy. The house was very clean. Lisa, the owner was very nice to deal with, if we had any we can just call her. They live down the road if we needed her. If I had one thing, it would be that there was more light in the downstairs bathroom..other then that.. it was perfect. We are hoping to come back next fall.. Thanks again Lisa for a wonderful place for our vacation.

The best vacation ever!

September 23, 2012

The property was impeccably clean, and charming. The owners thought of everything! There were Lobster feed supplies, loads of extra towels, entertainment, fully equipped propane cookout grill, washer, dryer, dishwasher, and a large camp fire pit. All we needed to bring was our food, clothing, and personal care products. The beach is private, with a nice gradually increasing depth. The only regret I had, was that I had not booked more time! I felt so at home and was really able to relax. When family and friends dropped by, they all fell in love with this property.

Wonderful Cottage

September 12, 2012

We had a wonderful week in Maine at this cottage, It was the best stocked rental house we have stayed in (3rd) the owners included everything needed to settle right in, including hand and dish soap, tissues, TP etc. They even replaced the propane tank on the grill within 20 minutes when it ran empty. We had a wonderful week, there was plenty to explore and do in the area and we had fun just relaxing at the cottage. The only thing I could complain about is the beach and water line are a little rocky so bring water shoes

Lisa & Mike Tripp

Owner's reply:

Am glad you enjoyed your week at our cottage! The water level was unusually low for the end of summer 2012. The water is normally several feet higher and you would not have had any problems with the small rocks.

Wonderful Vacation

August 26, 2012

Beautiful, quiet lake with plenty of space for your vacation. Owners provide everything - even wood and fire pit and gas and charcoal grills; and even the morning paper. Lots of room in the house and loved the screen-in-porch for times when the bugs are out. And most surprisingly thing of all - the beds were very comfortable. Usually complain about bad beds in most hotel rooms. You meet the nice owner after you get in and never see them again even though they live around the corner but they are easily accessible. Would definitely return.

Perfect place for our Honeymoon

July 25, 2012

My husband and I spent a week here for our honeymoon and it was perfect. The house had everything we needed if we wanted to stay "home," but was also a great location if we wanted to head out. The house was exactly as described. We loved it!! Can't wait to go back!

September 29, 2011

Great Stay! They've thought of everything and I mean everything. I would highly recommend to anyone needing a place in this area. 2 small nitpicks 1) need a bigger TV I know I didn't come to watch TV but we do watch news weather etc. and a bigger TV would be appreciated. 2) Towel hooks or a towel bar in the bathroom as there was nowhere to hang your towels.

Lisa & Mike Tripp

Owner's reply:

New 32" television is now at the cottage!!

Maine family vacation

August 18, 2011

We stayed at this cottage just last week. We had a great time. It was very comfortable and cozy. It had everythig you will need, including linens, beach towels and alarm clocks. There was a inexpensive place near Swan lake Grocery, which sells lobster. We had lobster 3-4 times that week, not including in resturants. I woke up to beautiful views of the lake right from my bedroon window. Just to let you know the beach is technically private but does adjoin the neighbors. This should not influence your decision to stay here though, as it does not impact your space or good time. You can even have bon fires on the beach. We did have to buy wood since the wood in the area was wet from the rain, but wood was cheap. Close to Belfats and Bangor. Bar Harbor and Acadia only ailttle over 1 hour to reach. Lots to do and see. Very relaxing and was the best vacation we have had in years. Would recommend booking for a GREAT time.

Back to Maine in Style

September 28, 2010

We come back to visit our family in Maine about once every 3 years. We have always wanted to rent a place on Swan Lake so everyone could come visit us during our stay. This was our first time to do so. We were not disappointed in any aspect of our week. The cabin was roomy, beautiful, homey, and very well-equipped. Frank loved having a daily newspaper delivered to him to read as he listened to the loons. This was a perfect time of year for us since the mosquito population was almost nonexistent! The cabin exceeded our expectations. We would recommend it to everyone...in fact, Frank's brother from New Hamshire says he is going to try to rent it next year for his family vacation.

This trip was amazing. It was our first time in Maine. WOW! The cabin was perfect for us. Completely stocked kitchen, right on the lake beach. Our boys loved the rocks to climb on. We had bon fires a couple of times. Great location to explore the coast as well. Don't miss Acadia National Park. Lisa, was wonderful and right there to help us with dvd issue. They went right out and bought a new one that same day. Great location and Great people.

Perfect getaway!

June 15, 2010

This cottage is so lovely hidden between trees right next to the lake with private beach. Everything is in the cottage you need to cook, play, relax, bbq... We loved and were not happy to go back home as the week had ended way to early! The owners are so friendly and always available with any questions. The location is great, short distance to Belfast, Camden, Rockland,... The cottage has been updated and renovated, feels like your walking into a summerhouse from the movies. Definitely a recommend for everybody!

We stayed at this amazing lake house in July for a week. The owners have left no stone unturned: loaded new kitchen with everything you could possibly need for entertaining including a lobster pot, crackers and serving dishes. Did I also mention the stainless steel appliances and dishwasher?? The beach is quite big and the view is gorgeous. The property is large and great for entertaining. It is also quite private and quiet. There is a fire pit on the beach and they even supply wood! We have already booked for next year :-).
