Relax in our charming cottage while resting your eyes on peaceful Lake Arcadia. Slip into your suits & jump in across the street and use our kayaks or walk 8 minutes to bask on the town beach (open July and August only) with a concession stand, life guard & paddle boats. Take in the sun & fresh air as you picnic under tall pine & oak trees. Get away from it all as you lounge in our three sided screened-in porch. Picturesque Lake Arcadia is perfect for swimming, canoeing & kayaking (no motor boats allowed). For serious boating & fishing, nearby Lake Metacomet (5 minute drive) has a public boat launch. Our fully furnished cottage was built in 1950 complete with knotty pine & fancy scrolled wood trim. There are three levels overlooking the lake: the main floor has an open living/dining area...Relax in our charming cottage while resting your eyes on peaceful Lake Arcadia.

This was perfect for our women's get-a-way. The house was immaculate and had all the amenities needed. Being right across from the lake we had such a peaceful view. Dot was a great hostess and I will recommend this to all my friends. Nice location...More
