This 2 story, 2 bedroom Lake Front property has just been completely redone. 27ft x 28 ft (1512 sq ft.) Because the garage and landscaping has not been completely done, the rental price on the little gem is a great bargain. Ten feet from the pond with its own dock and one canoe, this special spot is owned by an artist and has a contemporary gallery feel. When people with houses on the pond drop in to visit, they often comment that this place has the best view on the pond. First floor is all open with spacious feel with 1/2 bath and kitchen with all new stainless kitchen appliances. 6ft. high windows all across the front and glass french doors afford a view of the pond that is constantly beautiful. I am always inspired to take photos of new variations of the views. There are two bed rooms and a small full bath upstairs. The front bedroom spans the width of the house with lovely views of the pond. A queen in each bedroom with additional double and fold out in the back that could be placed in the landing outside of the bedroom. High speed internet and phone included. Summer season check in Sat. 2:00 pm check out following Sat. by 10:00 am. Rental rates are $1,150.00 / week starting June 14th through Sept. 13. No partial weeks. Full payment is required to secure the cottage for each week. A $200 Damage deposit is required and will be refunded in full within 21 days of the last day of rental if there is no damage. (I have never not refunded entire deposit.) A written notice will be provided if there is any deduction from the deposit. There is also a 9 % NH State Sales Tax and a $75.00 cleaning fee. A rental agreement will be sent to you when you book your time.
I am an artist and love my place; was to be my year round home; but I moved to California to help a friend recently diagnosed with terminal cancer. Decided to rent my place because it is too special for it to sit unused.
Kim Christiansen purchased this cottage in 2006
I bought this property because of its beautiful views.
The pond is considered a warm water pond and as such it affords great swimming and play and good fishing if interested. Many fun things to do in the surrounding area.
This house is a primary residence and not a vacation rental property. The owner leaves when the house rents.
Upon arrival I noticed the house had not been vacuumed. I mentioned this to the owner but he said he cleaned. I pointed out some dirt on the floor and he stuck to his story. I didn’t want to push the matter, but I need to inform other renters. It's unacceptable to charge a cleaning fee and not have the house professionally cleaned before renters arrive. My wife and I are very easy going, which is why we let it slide. I’m just very happy I brought a rubber floor mat for my 7 month old to play on.
Examples of what needs to be cleaned. The floors should be cleaned, cobwebs removed, bugs removed from window sills and all dish need to be clean. We cleaned every dish/glass before using them. Even decorative items need to appear clean.
Also, beware that there isn’t a usable grill. I specifically asked if there is a grill before committing to the rental and I was told there is. Yes, there is an old Weber charcoal grill, but the grates are rusty and the grill hasn’t been cleaned in ages. I was very disappointed by this since I had purchased a lot of grillables.
There is also a strong smell in one of the bedrooms. We shut the door and didn’t use the room.
I don’t mean to come down hard because the owner seems like a very nice man and I’m sure I would enjoy an evening of conversation with him. There is a level of cleanliness people expect when renting a property.
Perkins Pond is a beautiful 154 acre sheltered lake (pond) located near Lake Sunapee which is one of the largest lakes in New Hampshire. Sunapee is located about half way between Concord and Hanover (where Dartmouth College is located.) One half hour to either and about 1 1/2 hours to Boston. Because of its special location it is considered one of the quietest ponds in the region.
