Quiet getaway.
We enjoyed our week on beautiful Thorndike Pond. The cabin was as described. Lots of wildlife viewed from shore. It was fun to watch otters, Kingfishers, eagle and loons.

Dream Location
My husband and I had a restful time at Sarah and Paul's cottage. The view from the waterfront of Mount Monadnock is amazing. We saw a bald eagle soaring overhead, a family of loons teaching the young to fish, and young raccoons eating blueberries by the water. The cottage is rustic and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay!

Wonderful Summer Vacation!
We were guests at a wedding in Nashua, but decided to stay somewhere we could also spend some vacation time as a family. We stayed for 8 nights, and could have definitely stayed longer. The cabin itself is a charming, unrestored but lovingly maintained mid-century log cabin. It’s a true gem— comfortable, homey, and full of warm wood and authentic touches, but with modern amenities as well. TV and WiFi are available, though we spent most of our time unplugged. Sarah and Paul thought of everything when stocking the cabin. When We needed to iron a shirt, there was an iron. There were toiletry items, appliances, some basic food staples, kayaks and water toys in the bunkhouse, water shoes, and more. The gas grill on the wraparound deck is perfect for easy summer meals. The lake was the highlight of our stay. It’s quiet and peaceful, without a lot of loud motorized watercraft, and the view is fantastic. The water is clear, cool in the summer, great for kayaking, canoeing and swimming. Our dog retrieved balls from the lake all week, and our son explored the lake in a kayak. We had fires in the fire pit at sunset and made s’mores. The bunkhouse was perfect as a home base at the lake. Communication with Sarah and Paul was easy, prompt and courteous. We had no major issues during our stay, but appreciated knowing we were taken care of if anything came up. The location itself is a refreshing getaway from city/suburban life, but within an hour of Nashua and Manchester if you want mall and big box shopping. Brattleboro, VT is also within an hour. We loved Kimball Farm and hiked both Mount Monadnock and Pack Monadnock. If we had stayed longer, we may have taken some daytrips into Boston (2 hours) or even the White Mountains (2-3 hours). All in all, we had a great stay!

Perfect vacation for us!
Our time at Sarah’s cottage was just so lovely. The cottage was just what we wanted, cozy and warm. It’s location on Thorndike Pond was perfect for kayaking and hanging out by the water’s edge. We loved the wood fired sauna contrasted with the September chill of the lake water. My husband actually dove in! We made multiple trips from the sauna to the water and back again, so renewing! Our dog Wren loved her vacation too. She waded around the water’s edge and we walked every day along Thorndike Pond Rd and other nearby locations. Sarah was so helpful and responsive, answering my questions with mirth and humor. Plus, in response to 2 questions about supplies at the cottage, she generously provided them. Thank you Sarah, I hope we’ll be back!!

Spectacular sunsets at the beach over Mount Monadnock!
My husband and I enjoyed three weeks at the cottage with our children and granddaughters visiting during our stay. The lake was gradual and safe for our grands. The bunkhouse was a nice asset to have at the beach. The nights were filled with quiet and the occasional call of a barred owl. We spent our days kayaking, motoring on the pond, swimming and floating. The road was perfect for running/walking and we discovered it was 5 miles around the pond. My husband and youngest daughter hiked Mt Monadnock and Pack Monadnock. The area has many great restaurants and convenient supermarkets. We have been vacationing in this area for 11 years now and still find new things to do! One morning while paddling the lake we counted the motor boats and found only 15. If you like quiet this is the place for you. We loved our time at the pond and enjoyed the tranquility.
