My fifth summer here and always such a relaxing and fun time. My whole family loves to visit and we even have our own kayaks just for this vacation. The new dock is great and kids love fishing from it. Fun to see the various lake wildlife such as the loons and baby ducks, and some turtles. Sarah and Paul are fantastic to respond to any questions. Already booked for 2024!!

This was our second trip to this truly special spot on Thorndike Pond. What a treat. We had stunning weather most of the time, but even the few rainy days were spent well in the cozy and classic cottage. It has everything we needed. And while nearby areas were scorching, we stayed comfortably cool in the house under the shade of the massive pines, and enjoyed the pleasant breezes at the waterfront. We spent our stay staring out at the water and watching the heron and loons, and reading for hours. We took the kayaks out to the island to pick some of the most delicious blueberries ever. Almost all of our meals consisted of delicious, fresh food from nearby spots like Rosaly's farm stand. The addition of the ladder on the dock was a huge hit!! We didn't even know we were missing it last year, but it makes such a difference! This place is so peaceful that it's actually a little baffling. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

We had a great time staying at this log cabin on Thorndike Pond. The cabin is very cozy and had everything we needed. Our family enjoyed kayaking, fishing and swimming every day. It is very quiet on the lake with the call of the loons during the day and the owls at night. The view of Mount Monadnock is stunning. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us!

The property is lovely. A cabin built in the 30's retaining its true north country lake cabin feel. A fireplace insert for taking the chill off the evening, nice (recently rebuilt) deck overlooking the lake with great afternoon breezes. Gas range, firepit, wifi. No reliable cell signal (use wifi calling), no cable TV so bring your login/password info for access to your favorite stuff. Great selection of DVD movies (for adults, though) and family games. Two comfortable bedrooms (we slept like a rock) and a generous supply of linens and (especially) towels. Also a well-stocked kitchen with great pots & pans. A thoughtfully selected collection of tea, pancake/waffle mix, s'mores components, mac & cheese, etc. Great selection of inflated water toys, kayaks, and water shoes. Only negative comment: the cleanliness could be improved. Kitchen and bath fixtures were clean, but floors and walls and ceilings and windows were in need of a good once-over. Host was very caring and responsive, and felt like a friend after our visit.

Tucked in among tall trees, on a small hill, is this charming, cozy log cabin. It’s like a step back in time, except for the great WiFi and streaming TV. The beds were comfortable, the towels were fluffy, and the owner had filled it with lots of thoughtful touches – like ponchos and umbrellas – that came in handy during some of the rainy days. Drawers filled with anything you might have forgotten (shampoo, bug spray, sunscreen, beach towels). There was also delicious coffee and an assortment of teas and the makings for s’mores and kitchen necessities. It’s only a few minutes walk across the quiet dirt road to the beach and the lake, with a shed full of every possible water toy. We even took naps in the bunkhouse on the days where we stayed by the lake. While there is no AC in the house, we stayed cool even on warm days with a fan and shady trees. The house is wonderfully quiet, too, as is the entire neighborhood. One note: the stone “steps” leading to the house are uneven and there’s no handrail, which might be a challenge for someone with limited mobility. We loved it, and can’t wait to go back! The perfect Lakeside vacation!

Great location on a secluded, quiet lake, yet 10 minutes to town for restaurants, shopping/ice cream. Property was spotlessly clean and well stocked with the basics. NH Camps are unique - a back to the 50's family vacation. The owners made sure we had plenty of games to play each night, and some fun DVDs. But honestly, TV was the last thing we wanted to do. We brought our own lake toys (two inflatable kayaks were also provided). Paddleboarding each morning and each night at sunset was fantastic. There is a small island managed by the Nature Conservancy that makes for a fun destination. Also, you can walk around the lake - about 5.5 miles. Oh, and Mt. Mondadnock is just about 2 miles away. Everyone on the lake was very friendly. The only power boat we saw was a couple that took a 5mph cocktail cruise each night! Otters, Loons, Great Blue Herons etc. Great, relaxing getaway at the end of the summer. Thank you!

This camp was exactly what we were looking for. I loved the nostalgic/retro feel. The owners were very thoughtful in everything they provided which was more than we expected, we loved that our dog was welcomed there, and they had a helpful folder of things to do nearby. Extra linens and other things visitors might need were nearly organized. The cabin had enough comforts of home including comfy beds, wifi and roku, but maintained the feeling of getting away from it all. We were surrounded by nature and saw so many cool critters. Amazing views from the new deck and shore, close to hiking. We spent a lot of time lounging and kayaking on the water. It felt very private with few neighbors around. Our only negative comment is that we think the people who rented before us were a little less careful than us with some things around the cabin than we were, and we worry about being held accountable for their damages. Both doors need minor repairs, as does a chair and shower panel. So we needed to be extra careful entering and exiting the cabin as to not damage the doors further, and just avoided the chair and shower panel. We'd love to stay again and are so grateful for this week to relax as a family (including our dog).

There aren't enough words to describe how lovely our stay was. We explored Thorndike Pond and looked at the mountain every day, saw loons and even a bald eagle, swam, kayaked, and just stared at the beautiful view. The cove where the beach is located is so peaceful and perfect for the many hours we spent reading by the water. The dock is a particularly magical spot. The cabin was lovely. We love the traditional feel and how shady and cool it is. I wish I had spent more time in the hammock!! Sarah was incredibly communicative and clear leading up to our stay and gave us total privacy during. They supplied everything we needed in terms of linens and towels, and even some extra things like bandaids and extra sunscreen! Thanks so much!!
