About The Owner

We are a family of four (with two grown daughters) now spread between California and Florida, though we raised our children in Boston with summers in our Vermont house. Having retired to Florida, the house does not get as much use, and we decided it was time to share our special home on the Connecticut River with others!

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1970

Why The Owner chose Waterford

Within easy reach of Boston, the setting was perfect for a peaceful weekend out of the city. With small children, the ability to let them roam the woods and river was priceless, while the river sports, hiking and tennis proved relaxing for adults as well.

What makes this cabin unique

A morning swim in the river, when the water is like glass and the birds are out, followed by coffee on the porch, is the perfect summer morning.

Foliage season is spectacular in this area, with the woods surrounding the house ablaze with color. Crisp morning hikes with leaves underfoot is a fall treat - try to take in the fall colors from the lookout point at the top of Chamberlin Mt, a 45 minute hike you can start from the front door!

A great time

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at this cottage. We were 3 adults and 3 children (all under 3 years old). The cottage was spacious, secluded, clean and very well-equipped. We particularly loved the screened in porch for dining. And while some aspects of the cottage were a bit dated; whatever, it generally just added to the charm of the place.

The property itself was great for children with a lot of open space to run around and play games. It was a short 5-min walk through the woods to the community area with tennis courts, basketball net and a games room with ping pong and foosball. The beach area was great too with lots of chairs, toys and canoes / kayaks to use. And while it is actually a river, it is very much like a lake in that there were no strong currents - again, good for the kids. And it was quiet... only a handful of powerboats over the whole Labor Day weekend.

We look forward to our next visit!

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5
This place was absolutely perfect! Right on the river, great layout for our kids, the clubhouse and community beach/boats were great. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation spot. I would highly recommend this place to anyone, and I certainly intend on going back next year!

Beautiful and restoring

  • 5 of 5
I am rarely moved to write reviews but this house and its location are simply spectacular. Eleven of us celebrated my friend's pre-wedding girls' weekend here and it was perfect - clean, quiet and just the right size. I arranged the rental and each of the bride's friends (all different women with different backgrounds and tastes) loved every minute and every aspect of it (and I got to take credit, which should really be reserved for the friendly owner, Liz!). We swam, we went on runs, we lounged at the house, we cooked lots of food in the well-equipped kitchen, grilled on the picturesque porch, danced to music in the Great Room, took kayaks on the river, did yoga at sunset on the grassy point in front of the house....

The nearby beach is the icing on the cake. We spent all afternoon lying around, taking dips, and jumping off the dock.

I was so restored when I returned home to my family and hectic job. Bravo, Waterford! I hope I have a chance to return!

The Best of the Best

  • 5 of 5
We were 2 adults with 5 children and this location provided us with everything we could dream of for an amazing family vacation. Location is breathtaking and offers many different ways to connect with nature, from just sitting on the riverside and taking it all in, through, swimming kayaking and hiking. We ate most of our meals at the house and had everything we needed to be able to cook our meals easily. The house was so warm and welcoming and we are already dreaming of the next time we can go up there.

AMAZING!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
This place was really great. I never write reviews, however this place was phenomenal that it deserved a good review, hence I decided take some time and write one. There is not a single thing that I could complain about. The house is maintained really neatly. Well stocked with all the necessities. The kitchen is well equipped with pretty much everything you would need, there was even a popcorn machine. There are convenient stores and a Walmart only like 20 mins away.. There is a large deck out in the front porch for just chilling or if you want to enjoy a meal. The view from the porch is priceless. You can go fishing just by taking few steps from the porch. Our group caught a lot of fish.. I believe they were small mouth bass. There was an old fishing rod at the house; however we bought a rod from Walmart which we left behind at the house for future visitors. So now there are two rods.. There is a recreational club house very close to the house which was nice to have. This place is great for family or for just bunch of guys to chill. I definitely see myself coming back here. I give it 5 out of 5..

NOTHING BUT SPECTACULAR

  • 5 of 5
The house was incredible. This was my second time going. The first time I went with my girlfriend and her family. We had a wonderful time. The house comes equipped with everything. All we needed to bring was food. The house had new sheets, towels, pots, pans, plates, cups, wine glasses, everything and anything that you can think of, it was at the house. WiFi works like a charm. The house comes with a flat screen and cable. We had used full advantage of the grill at the house and we even had a dinner party at the clubhouse a few feet away from the house. The club house has a community grill that overlooks Connecticut River and the view is spectacular. There is a beach right by the club house and it was filled with kids. We went canoeing on the river and fished but didn’t have any luck with the fishing. The canoes are free and so are the row boats. The club house also has a basketball court and tennis courts. And the club house is only 50 feet away from the house. It’s just a walk thru the woods and you are there. The first time I went, we had an elderly person with us, and he couldn’t have been any happier. He was over whelmed with beauty of the river, morning sunrise, the glassy view of the river in the morning, he was extremely, extremely happy. The house has enough space for 14 people, and they could sleep COMFORTABLY. The deck is the best part of the house. In the morning, the glassy, serene view of the river is phenomenal, and having breakfast while enjoying that view is priceless.
The second time, I went with 7 guys. We had a great time. All my friends planned on coming back again. We had fished on the river and caught about 20 fishes. We actually grilled them on the grill that overlooks the river. We had a great time canoeing on the river and since it was early June, we had the entire river for ourselves. We loved the fact that there are no other houses in the vicinity so you have all the freedom in the world. No one is there to bother you. There are no cops that patrol the area, so you have no disturbance from them. We even went to Montreal, which was about 2/12 hours away. It was grand prix weekend at Montreal, so we had a blast. On my next trip, and yes I will be going there again, I will be bringing my own family.
