HOW DO YOU MAKE A WISH COME TRUE?
[This is our WISH JAR. What are your vacation wishes for 2017?.]It has long been tradition to provide loyal guests with first-pick of cottages and dates for the upcoming season. We do not take reservations until after the New year to ensure that you have time to drop us a line with your preference for week and cottage and room(s) in Hostel@Acorn.

We are on our winter break now and our office hours are rather sporadic so it's best to send us an email with:
  1. Your cottage and room preferences from first choice to third choice.
  2. Your preferred arrival and departure dates. If you have some flexibility, let us know that as it will help us make your WISHES COME TRUE

    EMAIL US NOW to let us know your WISHES.

    Memories and Wishes for 2017 - January, 2017

GUEST COMMENTS AND REVIEWS
If you have been a recent guest we invite you to comment.


OUR OFFICE HOURS ARE SOMETIMES SPORADIC.
[The Oakland House office is reopened.] New! Yay! We finally reopened the office in the old hotel.. This will be a great help to everyone. We are in and out so if you miss us there be sure that we are not far away. If we are out, your calls may be answered by a machine. You might find emailing us at relax@oaklandhouse.com more satisfactory. We will return both as soon as we can either from home or from our off site office.


SPECIAL EVENTS AND SHOREFRONT WEDDINGS IN 2017.
[Family reunion group dinner in the barn.]We've gotten request after request for weddings here. While things have changed, it's possible to reserve all the cottages for your guests and "tie the knot" in our cathedral field. Give us a call if this seems interesting.
We can save a weekend in the spring or fall for an "all colony" rental. You bring your friends and family here. If you book all 10 cottages you can celebrate your wedding in our cathedral field or on the shore. In this way you will not disturb other guests AND your friends and family will have the entire complex to play, visit and celebrate.

[A catered lobster dinner at the beach
.]During the busy months of July and August our facility is normally being enjoyed by families who come here year after year for a week at a time. Thus a July or August Wedding is generally not possible unless it's arranged much in advance.

The details of food and other things will be catered as we don't have our restaurant open. We can arrange for a bartender as well if you provide your own beverages.

Our rustic barn is available for small groups too, so please inquire.


Welcome! Would you like a "Breakfast Basket" or other items awaiting in your cottage?
[Welcome] Ask about a Welcome Breakfast Basket for a special event or if you expect to arrive after the local grocery stores close.

Honeymooners, guests with special events to celebrate? We can prepare a special welcome basket, fresh flowers or another item for your arrival.

This is but a sample of what we can arrange for you. Please enquire.


Complimentary WiFi at Oakland House Cottages by the Side of the Sea.

This will help those who want to work while away from home. It's a bit of a trick here but our "Campus wide" network is set up for your convenience. Each cottage guest will have its own log on code. This free service is available to you at considerable expense and complexity. We do not have DSL or high speed available via the phone or cable in our location and so we ask that you help us keep it working for all.

The system will be good for:
Retreiving email, and browsing on facebook.
Viewing of low res Youtube videos that might be posted on facebook or a news channel.
For general web browsing and consultation of the weather channel for the latest weather reports.

The system cannot be used for:
Netflix or steaming video or streaming music.
TV station streaming requires more than the system can handle.
No up-loading of large digital photo files to Flicker or Picassa.
No bit torrent or file sharing through our system.

Do have fun and stay in touch with your family, friends and business associates!



Our Favorite Fairy Houses Stories and Photos of Fairy Houses on site (ever changing as the Fairies come and go through the season):
You'll need Adobe Acrobat Reader (FREE from www.adobe.com) to download these pages.
"Are there Fairies Living at the Bottom of my Garden I?" flier. Large file will take quite a bit of time to download...but, with great detail.

"Are there Fairies Living at the Bottom of my Garden II?" flier. A quicker downloading file but with less detail.

"Yes, there are Fairies! Here's the proof. We've had fairy house sightings throughout the property. This is fun!
