Beautiful Swan Lake Cottage

August 1, 2016

I highly recommend vacationing at this beautiful relaxing cottage! You can tell by all the amenities that are included and how clean and nice the cottage is that the owners really care about you having a wonderful vacation. This cottage is very high quality.There is wireless internet and lots of channels available on the t.v., although we spent most of our time outside!There are plenty of bath towels, beach towels, dish towels, all bedding plus extra blankets and pillows, dish machine soap,( and it is so nice to have a dish machine!) dish soap, all dishes even a lobster pot, which we used! Yummy! Plenty of books to read, even one of my favorite author's, Danielle Steele, games and puzzles, cribbage board and cards. Also binoculars, which would be great for the eagle we saw and the mother duck and baby ducks who came right up to our beach! There is a daily newspaper delivered. Washer and dryer were convenient to have. One of the things we loved the most was the large screened in porch with a large table facing the lake. We ate almost all our meals out there. There is also a nice picnic table outside, a gas grill and charcoal grill. There is a nice sandy beach area with a large fire pit that we used to all sit around and talk and make s'mores at night.(bring your fire wood). There is a dock that we anchored our motor boat up to for a few days. The public ramp is across the lake, you can google for a map to it. The owner Lisa was very nice and wonderful to deal with!! We all had a wonderful vacation and our family members that visited loved the place also! We will definitely rent here again! Thank You Lisa for letting us use your beautiful cottage and making memories we will always have!

Wonderful Lake with great fishing, our week was very quiet even without neighbors the whole time. Property itself is fine, nice cabin/house, everything worked (within reason, it is an older house in the woods so don't expect all doors to close quietly :), everything was clean, do not expect the beach to be sandy.. we were little disappointed by that but made the best of it, you won't be making lot of sand castles, but the pebbles are smooth so as long as kids have some sort of crocs/shoes they'll be fine and have fun, by no means is that fault of the owner, that's just how the whole lake is including the public beach which is about a mile away. Simple fire pit & great outdoor area, beautiful view, very clean lake.. as proof of that on our last day we were treated to snapping turtles burying eggs on the owners private beach by the firepit. For activities, we did some antiquing, visited the observation tower at the bridge (forgot the name), visited couple old forts, of course did plenty of swimming, playing, fishing, kayaking, BBQing and stopped by the shore at the nearby state park. 0 complaints. Only suggestion for the owners or potential renters: maybe have couple baby gates available for the spiral staircase or notify people to bring theirs, we engineered something from various things to get by which was fine. Only an issue if you have little ones that are big enough to maybe open the upstairs door at night.

We came with our motorcycle and little girl (dalmatian), and had a wonderful, relaxing week at the cottage. Plenty to do and see in the area. But our best time was relaxing at the cottage. Lisa and Mike are very friendly , and EVERYTHING is at the cottage. If you are looking for an A+ cottage , privacy, and down time to recharge, please consider this cottage, you won't be disappointed.

We had a wonderful week at Swan Lake! It rained a good amount, but could still enjoy the view from inside the screened porch. Watching movies at night with a family of six adults was a little cramped but cozy. We had to bring over chairs from the kitchen and re-arrange furniture to all get a seat, but if it wasn't raining then we would have been down at the fire pit anyway. The lake was very clean and large. We really appreciated the outdoor seating that was provided. Loved seeing the view of the lake from all the rooms in the house! The only thing that was lacking, was a sharp knife for cooking, and a wooden cutting board. They had one of everything else you could need though. We would definitely rent this again. Owners were very helpful and nice to deal with. Thank you Mike and Lisa for being so great to rent from.

The cottage was so peaceful. We met Lisa & Mike shortly after we arrived, they are the friendliest couple. The cottage was well stocked with linens and everything we needed including a gas grill with propane. The loons swam by every morning with the young ones. Mike gave us information on renting a kayak and a canoe for the week . Everyone had a great time. We ended our evenings by toasting marshmallows over the fire pit. We had a nice peaceful family vacation. If we decided to vacation in Maine again we will definitely be contacting Lisa and Mike for this rental.

Our 2d stay and everything was just wonderful. As a kid, I learned to swim at this lake. The state park was walker's beach when I was young. Heard the loons and one bald eagle and geese. We now live in California and would stay here again and again. Cabin has everything you would ever need. We'll be back soon.

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.

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.

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!

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!!!

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!

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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 :-).
