Our rustic cottage is a wonderful place to relax, unplug and unwind in a quiet nature filled environment. The cottage boasts a screened in wrap around porch, private beach and private dock onto the lake. Reconnect with loved ones or nature in this picturesque natural setting.
Our charming family cottage is as unique and special as the amazing panoramic views it provides. The wrap around porch is fully screened, with large windows to enhance the view from inside. The porch also invites guests to enjoy sleeping next to the lake with three single beds and a double bed. The porch is also where the main dinning space is. The heart of the cottage offers a living area space, with a queen sized raised bed and additional day bed. In the back are two bedrooms, one with a queen sized bed and the other with bunk beds, perfect for our younger guests! There is one bathroom complete with shower and tub, a kitchen with gas range, oven and refrigerator, clothes line for wet clothes and electricity.
Outside is a private sandy beach, that even the smallest guests will enjoy. The water is very shallow and tappers of slowly. There is a full sized volleyball court complete with volleyball net (or badminton if you prefer).
On the other side of the cottage are rocks for climbing or sitting, canoe, and a private dock. The dock may be used for swimming, fishing (with license). Then when night-time rolls around, enjoy the stellar views of our universe with the use of the fire pit to light your night.
The road surrounding the lake is quiet and excellent for family walks or bike rides.
This cottage offers the perfect space for families to reconnect, have fun and adults to unwind because there is no internet, TV or very good cell service (unless you go outside to the end of the dock) making nature, fun and yourself the full focal point of your visit!
There is a maximum of 4 cars parked allowed parked at the property at any one time.
Please no parties and observe quiet hours between 10 pm and 6 am. Though it seems secluded, there are neighbors that will be disturbed by excessive noise and parties.
Guests will have access to the complete campus including cottage, gas barbecue grill, private beach, private dock, canoe and fire-pit

Water Craft: Use of canoe is included for guests. Canoe, paddles and life-jackets will be provided. Guests assume responsibility for canoe and care of canoe during their stay, ie: put it back and don't sink it.
Life-jackets are required and provided for the canoe. The NH law is ANYONE under the age of 13 MUST wear a life vest at all times on a water craft (that means the canoe).
Beach: The use of chairs and firepit are provided. Please return beach to condition you found it in. Please fill in all holes, smooth out sand castles, and dispose of trash. Please help children refrain from throwing beach sand into the lake, our beach is slowly eroding and every little bit helps. Feel free to play on big rock, at your own risk.
Fire-Pit: Please use common fire safety when lighting, using and tending to a fire. Please DO NOT harvest wood from the forest, wood for one fire will be provided for you, after that you can purchase more firewood at the grocery store or at the convenience store at the end of the lake. Please do not use wood found around the property. Also, DO NOT pour water into the fire-pit or put sand in it, it is made of metal and will rust and the sand makes a mess! Plan your fires so they will be close to out when you plan to go to bed, but don't worry too much since the fire is contained within a heavy, metal container. In the event of rain, guests are responsible for covering the fire-pit (with it's included tarp) again to prevent water damage and rust.
Trash: Please place trash bags recyclables inside appropriate barrels provided. Please dispose of your trash and recyclables at the town's transfer station, only if staying a full week, which will be explained upon arrival (or pay an additional disposal fee of $100 for a week).
Additionally, there is no washer or dryer on site, in town New London does have a laundry mat only 5 minutes away.
All boating, swimming, activities inside and out of the cottage are at your own risk!
