New Hampshire Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bath Full shower, sleeps 6

This is a four season home on a quiet secluded spring fed 100 acre pond. The views are beautiful and the swimming and fishing are great. Close to 3 major cities for things to do. The perfect get away for the stress of city life.

Soon to come: We will be having new cabins built sometime in the future. They will be in a very private and quiet location in Warner NH near MT Sunapee for skiing in the winter and Lake Sunapee in the summer, only a 10 min. drive. With hiking and fishing near by. You can email for further info. Thank you, Wayne and Autumn

New deck, views: We have added a porch across the front of the cottage. A great place to sit and take in the sun set and look over the water only 10 feet away.

Artesian well: No need to bring your own water the water is great

Wonderful place.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time here. It was so much better than the pictures. The owner was wonderful and welcoming. We felt right at home. It had everything we could have wanted or needed. We hope to go back next summer for a week.

Clean house, great location and sunsets

  • 5 of 5

Wayne was a great host and very flexible. We had just moved and were unable to get our check to him at check in and he worked with is to send it by the end of the week. Kids loved swimming, canoe, kayak and dragging the tube behind the pontoon boat. Fishing was good overall. Pond is quiet with very little boat traffic and loons were about the only sound you would hear most of the day. Great people and a great house.

Quiet, secluded and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here at Wild Goose Pond. This was our first time using VRBO and had a great experience. Wayne was very accommodating and the camp has everything you could possibly need. Our dog loved swimming everyday, as did we. We created a lot of great memories and hope to return next Summer.

Amazingly Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

What can you say about a 5 day trip, totally disconnected from all of life's usual distractions. No email, no cell, no internet... but PLENTY OF BEAUTY! Our return trip was again nothing short of amazing. The view sitting on the deck watching the leaves turn colors during the week was great. While the wind kept us off the pond much of the week, the dogs (and I) both loved sitting on the dock, with a beverage in hand, watching the days go by. Day trips up to Concord or just out driving around peeping the fall colors were welcomed by the return trip down to Merrill Roads end. Its amazing that a day without power due was hardly even noticed as an inconvenience, since, well, seclusion was the only order of the day. The dogs loved barking at the chipmunks or wondering what those things swimming in their water around the docks were. And they definitely miss the hikes down the dirt roads and camp trails. Thanks again to Wayne & Autumn for a great stay, and the updates made since my last visit were great. If you ever install internet or get cell service there, you might have a summer-long renter haha. Thanks again! -Bucky, Sarge & Mia

Another great stay............

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to the Northwood Cottage. Again we enjoyed the seclusion and peacefulness as both neighboring cottages we vacant when we were there. We didn't get out on the lake this year, the weather didn't cooperate, but nonetheless another enjoyable stay. Wayne is a great guy, very accomodating. And yes, that sunset is your view from inside the cottage!

Relaxing and perfect :)

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was wonderful. It has a relaxing and comfortable feel to it, where we felt right at home and everything we could have needed was there. The sunset over the pond was breathtaking, I've never seen anything like it. We enjoyed the fire, the peace and quiet, and hope to return sometime. The guestbook was a wonderful touch :) Thank you for the much needed getaway!
