Ridge House--Waterfront Home With Private Dock On Pontoosuc Lake

Amazing home, beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about our stay at Ridge House! I took my family (husband & 19 month old), my mom and my sister's family (husband & 2 1/2 year old) with us on this trip. We had an amazing time!

The house is very clean and updated. There was plenty of room for everyone (sleeping, sitting on the couch, eating inside and out) and we weren't on top of each other. The pictures are a true representation of what you will find in the house! Not like a hotel that hasn't updated images in years and you're disappointed when you arrive.

When we arrived we were in awe of the view! I was even more excited when I saw a walk in option to the lake as well as the ladder off the dock. Our little guys were able to stand or sit on the steps before we took them into the lake. We were so surprised to find a welcome card and bottle of wine from the homeowners waiting for us!

The fire pit was perfect for evenings after the kids went to bed and so easy to use. I wish we were still on vacation and was sad to leave.

Thank you Raphael & Chelsea, your home is lovely and we are strongly considering staying again next summer!

Lovely get away in the mountains, lakeside!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting with lake Pontoosuc at the bottom of the backyard hill. Lots to do right there at the house, well stocked with games and kitchen supplies. Important when you have a 3 week old in addition to the rest of the family! For us the weather turned out perfect, making the vacation the best one in memory. “ this is the best house yet! “ according to to my two children and 4 grandchildren. My husband loved sitting by the lake and relaxing, I loved the kayaks and paddle boards. Something for everyone.

An amazing getaway for any season !

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a lovely vacation stay at Ridge House. This house was spotless clean and included everything you would need to make your stay complete. The owners responded quickly to all of our questions and were so accomodating. The view and location is incredible. With only a 10 minute drive to Jiminy Peak, it’s a perfect winter getaway. The lake is in the backyard and i can’t wait to visit again during warmer weather. We are definitely coming back this summer! Thanks Chelsea and Raphael for an incredible stay !

Fantastic Winter Break Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fantastic stay at the Ridge House! 9 of us (4 adults & 5 kiddos) stayed at the Ridge House for 4 nights. We arrived to a spotless and sweetly decorated home. We skied at nearby Jiminy Peak, which was about 15/20 min away. We made dinner every night and found the kitchen to be very well appointed. The lake views were fantastic and the house was warm and cozy. The owners responded promptly to any questions we had. We are considering renting again next year and highly recommend this house for an easy and relaxing get away.
