Joanna and Andrew have a real gem here. The Log Cabin is Rustic, yet modern, and full of all the amenities you could possibly need and want. Communication with them was really great from our first inquiry about the property all the way to promptly receiving our deposit back after we arrived home.
We were a family with 3 generations looking for a special place to spend some time together. The layout of the cabin enabled us to all have our privacy. 86 year old grandma was in a bedroom on the main floor so she didn't have to climb any stairs. Grown children enjoyed their own space in the loft. We (the parents) had our own suite on the ground level.
The openness of the common areas gave us a place to gather, prepare meals, play games at night, and just hang out. It was very comfortable.
Another reason we chose this property was the Lake front, dock, and swimming area. We wanted Grandma to be able to make it down and sit on the dock. The gentle slope from the house to the water made for easy walking. We enjoyed many hours together by the water, summing, kayaking around the pond, sunbathing on the raft, reading, or just enjoying the peaceful setting. There are only a few houses on the Pond, and no big boats, so it is really quiet and peaceful.
The setting of the cabin on Sandy Pind is amazing. I have never seen such incredible sunrises and sunsets in all my life. One morning before 5 am I sat out on the dock and enjoyed the light show happening before me. Before I knew it, an hour had passed. I love photography and captured it all on camera in an incredible sequence.
Town is about 20 minutes away where you can find anything you need. We tried Ken's Family Restaurant twice. The Fried Scallops were so delicious, we went back a second time later in the week. We also frequented the Ice Cream Parlor a few times.
We waited for the perfect weather and took at day trip to Mt Washington. The drive was a little over 2 hours but the amazing views were completely worth it!! We were brave and drove our own car up. All I can say is WOW.
We highly recommend Joanna and Andrew's place on Sandy Pond.
