Rindge Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Called 'A little slice of heaven' by one renter, this scenic property captures the beauty of rural New England. The cabin is a modernized 1903 cottage with 1100 square feet of comfortable living space that includes three bedrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen and one full bathroom. Fully furnished and delightfully decorated, the living room contains an American Leather sleeper sectional (in fabric and a queen plus size bed) with maximum seating for relaxing. The sizeable screened front porch is also furnished and a great place to watch the exquisite sunsets or enjoy the lake and mountain views. Other amenities include washer, dryer, iron, stove and microwave. Outside, there is a wide 1300 foot hiking trail down to the private lakefront beach. Two inflatable kayaks are available for fishing or recreation. There is a great sand pile for the kids as well as a wonderful place to swim, have fun, picnic and relax. With an occasional chime of church bells from Cathedral of the Pines the property has become known as Higher Ground to those who have stayed and enjoyed the beautiful creation.

Higher Ground is owned by Ryan and Heidi Townsend. It is a retreat home that is used for meeting family and friends. We own a furniture and design business and have a passion for creating spaces people will enjoy and love. We decorated Higher Ground with the goal of making it functional as well as serene and beautiful. We hope you come and enjoy this little slice of heaven as much as we do!

Ryan Townsend purchased this cabin in 1996

I (Heidi) was raised in Rindge and while returning home to visit family, I stumbled on this beautiful property in 1996. It was nostalgic and reminded me of a summer cottage my parents had owned when I was young. Higher Ground was originally built by a professor from Boston College in 1903 as a summer home. It still had some of his original belongings in the barn in 1996. I instantly fell in love with the charm of the cottage and the beauty of the landscape. Since it borders Cathedral of the Pines, the first day I was there I heard the chimes playing. Instantly, I felt a heavenly tranquility that is still there to this day. It holds some of my most treasured memories raising my children: horseback riding the many trails nearby, canoeing on the lake, hiking, campfires in the evening, swimming in the early mornings and just relaxing! It truly is a retreat from the hustle and bustle of a fast paced life. We hope it will be that for you too. Blessings!

This property is on a paved road but is completely secluded. It has a 6 acre field as well as beautiful woods to explore. The lake has a 50 foot cleared beach area and has no public access, making it quiet and serene.

ANOTHER GREAT STAY AT HIGHER GROUND-WE'LL BE BACK!

Another great stay at Higher Ground-we'll be back!
  • 5 of 5
As usual, our visit to the Rindge/Keene/Peterborough area was great. Higher Ground was a perfect home base for all of our adventures. Jessica made sure everything was in place for our arrival, answered questions during the week and we had a wonderful stay. Could not recommend this property more wholeheartedly. I spoke with Ryan after our stay and I told him he and his wife really got it right with all they have done to make this place even more special than it naturally is. The new paddle boards and kayaks were a big hit. The towns of Keene and Peterborough are our favorites. Lots of great restaurants and things to do. We are already looking forward to our next trip to Higher Ground.

FANTASTIC PROPERTY AND LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We were stuck for a place during sons lax tourney and we came across higher ground...we are so glad we did. The house was great..great original looking cabin from outside and modern on inside. The owners and manager have done a great job keeping it in great condition and well stocked. The trail down to the water was a great hike and the two kayaks, row boat, paddle boards kept the whole family busy. We spent all of our of lax field activity on the pond fishing, paddling and swimming. The owners provide everything from fishing poles to several water crafts...we invited a couple of lax families over for BBQ and again owners came through with a great weber grill...our friends didn't want to go back to their hotels. The manager was great and they came right away to fix the wifi. The only trying part of the weekend was the uphill climb from the water (great work out) and having to leave.....this place blew through our expectations and I would recommend to families or anyone who wants to get away....it made a long lax weekend secondary to a great family getaway..higher ground is a must stay if you need to be in the Keene area...

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND

  • 4 of 5
If you want peace and quiet this is the spot. House is very nice and plenty of room for 6. If you have small children be advised that the water is a bit of a hike. The screened in porch is great for relaxing and reading with your morning coffee. The two things I would add are a picnic table for outdoor eating and a real deal fire pit near the house not a portable one. Other then that I would stay here again without question.

WONDERFUL LITTLE GETAWAY.

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was just as described. The exterior is quaint, and the interior is immaculate and beautifully decorated. We were very comfortable -- the cabin had everything you could need. We cooked an elaborate meal one night and didn't want for any kitchen tools or utensils. We enjoyed a hilly jog to the nearby Cathedral of the Pines one morning. The sunsets over the lake were gorgeous. We even had pretty good cell reception from the cabin (though it was nice to be mostly unplugged), and the tv got the Golf Channel, which was very important to certain members of our party.

3-GENERATION FAMILY VACATION SPOT

  • 5 of 5
We had three generations staying at Higher Ground for a week. The Pack 'n Play was a helpful surprise and lightened our packing load. This cottage is clean, comfortable, well-provisioned and easy to live in right from the moment of arrival. The photos hardly do justice to the incredible view of Mt. Monadnock, the broad grassy hilltop that surrounds the house and the private sandy beach. We brought our croquet and bocce, and used the outdoor fire pit for s'mores one night at sunset. The kayaks are fun for a paddle, and provided a sense of adventure for a nearly two-year old. Turning into the driveway is like passing through a door to a real live New England post card, and when you turn the corner to see the field and cottage it takes your breath away. Jessica, the local property contact, is efficient and available to answer any questions that might arise. We walked to Cathedral of the Pines, had ice cream at Kimball's, and two of the guys hiked Monadnock early one morning.
