Cozy camp in picturesque location
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).

Classic NH Camp Experience on "Golden" Thorndike Pond
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!

Sweet, old-fashioned cabin in the woods
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!

Another great week in Nh!
This a rustic little cabin with it's own private and lovely beach, with a view of Mount Monadnock. If you are looking for a quiet and rejuvenating weekend in the woods of Nh, but near good restaurants, this is the place. We loved it!

Beautiful and peaceful getaway
Amazing setting. Great area with dock and bunk house on the water across a well maintained dirt road from the cottage. Well equipped kitchen. Very comfortable large living room with wood burning stove for cool evenings. Close to Jaffrey and Peterborough. Kitchen and bath a little outdated, but functional. Overall if was homey and comfortable and the getaway we were looking for. Although we didn’t need anything from the hosts, Sarah and Paul, they offered assistance if necessary and I have no doubt they would accommodate anything we needed.

Restful Week on the Pond
This spot was perfect for me this week! It is a charming cabin with the pond and beach right across the dirt road. I am from this area originally, so I knew what to expect, but this was even better than I expected. So peaceful and quiet day and night. With the wi-fi I could get my work done easily and then head out for a walk around the pond, a swim in the pond or a kayak ride exploring the perimeter. The owners were very helpful and responsive. I loved having the kayaks inflated before I got there and the logs ready in the fire pit. For most of the week I was the only guest but some family visited for one night and there was plenty of space. The temperature was in the high 80s all week, so we enjoyed sitting out on the deck for meals or down at the waterfront for a glass of wine. The enjoyment was so self-contained! My whole drive back to NC, all I could think about was this get-away and looking forward to doing it again! Thank you!
