Overview

Northwood Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 6

This is a four season home on a quiet secluded spring fed 100 acre pond. The views are beautiful and the swimming and fishing are great. Close to 3 major cities for things to do. The perfect get away for the stress of city life.

Soon to come: We will be having new cabins built sometime in the future. They will be in a very private and quiet location in Warner NH near MT Sunapee for skiing in the winter and Lake Sunapee in the summer, only a 10 min. drive. With hiking and fishing near by. You can email for further info. Thank you, Wayne and Autumn

New deck, views: We have added a porch across the front of the cottage. A great place to sit and take in the sun set and look over the water only 10 feet away.

Artesian well: No need to bring your own water the water is great

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered

Wonderful place.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time here. It was so much better than the pictures. The owner was wonderful and welcoming. We felt right at home. It had everything we could have wanted or needed. We hope to go back next summer for a week.

Amazingly Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

What can you say about a 5 day trip, totally disconnected from all of life's usual distractions. No email, no cell, no internet... but PLENTY OF BEAUTY! Our return trip was again nothing short of amazing. The view sitting on the deck watching the leaves turn colors during the week was great. While the wind kept us off the pond much of the week, the dogs (and I) both loved sitting on the dock, with a beverage in hand, watching the days go by. Day trips up to Concord or just out driving around peeping the fall colors were welcomed by the return trip down to Merrill Roads end. Its amazing that a day without power due was hardly even noticed as an inconvenience, since, well, seclusion was the only order of the day. The dogs loved barking at the chipmunks or wondering what those things swimming in their water around the docks were. And they definitely miss the hikes down the dirt roads and camp trails. Thanks again to Wayne & Autumn for a great stay, and the updates made since my last visit were great. If you ever install internet or get cell service there, you might have a summer-long renter haha. Thanks again! -Bucky, Sarge & Mia

Another great stay............

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to the Northwood Cottage. Again we enjoyed the seclusion and peacefulness as both neighboring cottages we vacant when we were there. We didn't get out on the lake this year, the weather didn't cooperate, but nonetheless another enjoyable stay. Wayne is a great guy, very accomodating. And yes, that sunset is your view from inside the cottage!

Relaxing and perfect :)

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was wonderful. It has a relaxing and comfortable feel to it, where we felt right at home and everything we could have needed was there. The sunset over the pond was breathtaking, I've never seen anything like it. We enjoyed the fire, the peace and quiet, and hope to return sometime. The guestbook was a wonderful touch :) Thank you for the much needed getaway!

Wonderful Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much to Wayne and Autumn for a truly wonderful weekend! Our group had such a relaxing, enjoyable couple of days away from it all. Wayne was wonderful with our schedule, and made us feel right at home. The cabin is delightful (and stayed nice and warm even when the temperature took a dive), the grounds and lake are breathtaking, and we had plenty of room for 6 adults for both sleeping and daily activities. The pictures on the listing are exact and perfect, and the amenities list was spot-on.

We would all highly recommend the cabin for just about anyone in just about every season! We're very excited to try and book some time for the summer - the lake is gorgeous, and right at the edge of the property, and we can't wait to give it a go when it's warm :)

Amazing & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing week, despite 4 days of rain! Talk about relaxing. If you want to get away from it all, then this is the place. With no cell or internet service, I was in heaven (although I will admit, a few trips into town to check emails and messages were required). The last day was the best with the great fall colors over the pristine pond, the loon welcoming my last day, and a trip around the pond in the pontoon boat. My puppy absolutlely loved watching the chipmonds playing hide and seak with him, long walks and our big trip to Mt. Washington on a crystal clear day. Every comfort of home was there; all I needed was food & drink. And all so clean. Thank you again! Hope to see you again next year this week.
