The Perkins House

Resting on the corner at 15 Olive, the Perkins House is a peice of Lakewood Theater history.  Charles F. Perkins was a very renowned and longtime (from 1912-1955) scenic designer at Lakewood.  His son, James, was an actor in several productions from 1932 - 1940.  We purchased this camp in 2020 from James' daughter Barbara, and it is decorated in the spirit of the Perkins eras. We hope to transport the residents of it back to a simpler time; includes turntable and old albums. 

With two and a half bedrooms it will sleep four comfortably. Kitchen, sitting room, bath and lovely screened porch as well, along with a beautiful grassy yard - a portion of which is to be developed into the community flower & veggie gardens - and direct shared access to Hayden Brook.  The community Olive Street bridge over Hayden Brook makes for a very short and pleasant walk to Lakewood Theater, Restaurant, and Lake Wesserunsett.

It would be preferred if the chosen Artist in Residence could stay for the entire season, which runs from late May to mid September, but we are willing to negotiate for shorter (or slightly longer) lengths of time. Please visit the page regarding residencies here
