Guestbook comments from the owner
We received your letter and check today for the deposit. Thanks so much. We had a wonderful time. We loved the cabin which was so clean and comfortable. The first night there was a short rain shower and we saw a double rainbow over the pines trees from the deck. We swam a lot and also enjoyed the rowboat and paddleboat.
We gave the children masks and snorkles, so they kept busy checking out all the fish including one they named Chester (probably about 10 different ones that look alike). My son caught his first fish which we released. Then, the children decided they would rather feed the fish than catch them. From the dock, they impaled japanese beetles on the latch which usually fastens the hook to the line. It was amazing to watch the fish come up and gulp down one after another. (The beetles were collected from the poor Cherry Tree which seemed to have a lot on it at mid day). We rowed across the pond a number of times and swam at the little beach to the left of the inlet (without the swing set/playground). We liked it because it was quiet, had a nice sandy bottom, and we often found frogs in the rushes. We wondered if a beaver was building a house or simply stockpiling sticks in the lily pads at the mouth of the inlet. Twice we found freshly cut tree branches over there that had been gnawed off by a beaver.
My husband and I also appreciated the wireless. I had to bring a bit of work up with me,and this made it much more convenient. We ventured out a bit to Hillsboro where we stopped for ice cream and Henniker where we found the St. George Cafe which had wonderful bagels. We explored a section of the river coming down from Hillsborough into Henniker past the sporting store where we picked up a package of night crawlers and found out that the children did not need fishing licenses. The river was neat. We waded around, looked at minnows and frogs, and saw a very large beaver lodge on the far side.
I loved your little kitchen which was so well stocked with various cooking pots and utensils. We mostly cooked and ate out on the porch. The children ate enormous amounts of food due to all their swimming.
In short, it was a great week. A very nice experience for our family. We mostly spend time on the ocean in ME where I grew up, so the chance to be on a pond and swim and explore the fresh water habitat was a treat. We would love to return and even see the pond in the fall or winter.
