Couldn't ask for more!
The place was everything we envisioned and more. First off, communication with Elaine was easy and she was very responsive to any questions we had before arrival. Due to our uncertainty of arrival time, being able to access the house without physically meeting anyone was very convenient. Upon arrival, the house and yard was completely cleaned and well-manicured. The interior of the house was well laid out, and well furnished. It had all the modern conveniences without losing the backwoods feeling of the cabin’s location. Every day we used the kitchen and outside propane grill to cook breakfast and dinner. We had just completed 3 days of hiking in the Presidential Range, and being able to do laundry at the house was a much appreciated feature. Elaine left out take-out menus for the local restaurants, and we took up her recommendation of JL Sullivans Irish Pub, which was the best food we had during our vacation. We spent almost every waking hour at the cabin within the screened-in porch. We ate all our meals in the porch, took in some sun, and played board games (which were stocked in the cabin). Outside at night the bugs were sometime brutal when near the water (which was expected), so the porch was where we enjoyed most the sunsets and late nights. The fire pit was well stocked with dry wood, and was another great spot to watch sunsets while treating ourselves to s’mores. The cabin is VERY private, which is exactly what we wanted. Located off a dirt road, you rarely heard a passing car, and trees lining the property prevented you from seeing any traffic. The neighbor’s house can barely be seen from the cabin, and the pond is set at a lower elevation and is completely private. We enjoyed taking the paddle boat out, swimming in the pond, and lounging on the dock in the middle of the pond. We counted 11 turtles that sunned themselves on the rocks every day. We also saw a Great Blue Heron by a pond. AMAZING views from every window the house. Every night we were treated to some of the greatest sunsets we ever saw. Took too many photos to count. Upon leaving, we were already talking about coming back. The pictures of this place do not do it any justice, it needs to be experienced. It’s such a beautiful piece of property, and our short hiatus at the cabin was a breath of fresh air.
