Coming from further away? Our recommended airport is Manchester, NH (MHT). From there we are 3 1/2 hours away. Manchester is a nice airport and getting a car rental is easy as is accessibility. Other choices would include Burlington, VT(3 1/2 hours), Montreal, Quebec (2 1/2 hours), or Portland ME (4 hours). Logan airport in Boston Mass (5 hours) is the preferred airport for international travel.

Wonderful, cozy cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We have been snowmobiling in Pittsburg for years, and usually stay at Lopstick or other cabins, but decided to try this cozy A-Frame. We were so happy we did! Easy trail access, great accomodations with big screen TV to watch the Patriots! (Only downside of the whole trip was they lost to the Broncos!) - HIghlight was the 8-10 deer that greeted us in the driveway every evening. We are trying to find another weekend yet this season to go back to this great place. Thank you Bob and Theresa!

Fantastic Place To Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We all had a great time staying at the A-Frame. It was in a perfect location, very clean and welcoming. All of the amenities were taken care of making it a nice transition into vacation. Overall, we had a wonderful weekend away and Theresa & Robert were great to rent from.

The only downfall is there is only 1 double bed. We had two couples and one more double bed would have made it perfect.

The A-frame was just right for two of us.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the A-frame and found the owners and the caretakers friendly and helpful. It was nice and quiet and private. The building in the photo is a garage/storage shed belonging to the A-frame, not a nearby cabin as we thought it might be. Everything we needed was provided and the place is in great shape. We hope to stay here again in the future.

Best Cabin Rental!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Theresa and Bob's cabin! The pictures are accurate but it's so much better in person! The cabin is clean, comfortable, fully stocked and easily aaccessible. We have been vacationing in New Hampshire for many years but we usually stay in Jackson or Conway. This trip we decided to venture up North more and visit "Moose Alley" I'm so glad we did. We saw two White Tailed Deer, a Moose with her baby and a black bear running away from us into the woods. What a great adventure we had! If you rent this cabin you will not be disappointed. It was great to come back after a long day, have a cup of tea and relax. There is also a fire pit outside where you can just sit and listen to the stillness of the woods......perfect place!! And thanks to Theresa for being so easy to work with, you are the best!! We will be back as soon as we can get some more time away!!
