I was looking for my review and it seems to have disappeared, here it is again, sorry for the delay!
My husband and I celebrated our tenth wedding anniversary here last summer. We rented the place for 10 days, and had various friends come up for a few days at a time. Our friends (mostly 30's, some little kids, from NYC and Boston) unanimously loved this location. You really feel like you have been welcomed into an extended New England family's warm, lived in, summer cottage. The history just oozes from this place, and the decor, books, games and tchotchkes really make this unique and special (especially the kids room, we though the single beds would be a deal breaker, but people were fighting to stay in there!).
We spent the week hiking on easy NE rainforest trails, swimming in the pond, canoeing at sunset, cooking big family meals, playing manhunt on the grounds and charades by the fire. It was perfectly idyllic. We really look forward to coming again. Thank you!
