Overview

Monadnock Region Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, Sleeps 6

This lake home is all about location. Sited broadly on the east side of White Pond (43ac), perfect for the early riser who wants to see the sun peek over the mountain edge or glide silently across the water to watch the loons play. Tranquil beauty barely describes the location of this camp. From the moment you leave the pavement an over whelming feeling of peace and relaxation is in the air. Water quality is the best possible – weed free and crystal clear. Perfect for swimming, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, and sailing. Horseback riding rentals nearby with great trails. Nice sandy beach too! The stargazing at night is spectacular. This cottage is unpretentious and low maintenance for the discriminating lake house renter who is looking for serenity with drop dead gorgeous views. Very private too! Originally built in 1957 and remodeled in 1986. Call 203-834-9595 for more information.

Suitability:
  • children welcome

Lakefront Gem

  • 5 of 5

My stay was everything I was hoping for at a New Hampshire lakefront cabin. It is truly a very special place for reflecting on and enjoying nature. The lake draws you out to kayak and swim as well as offering quiet observation of this woodland gem. I particularly took advantage of the hiking as I am an avid birder. There are hikes for all abilities with many challenging trails nearby. Ending the day watching the sunset while sitting on the dock was the perfect way to close out a peaceful and relaxing day.

loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was the most beautiful, sweet, carefree place we've ever stayed in. Our three kids loved the lake and the freedom the kayaks gave each of us. The cottage itself was so perfect for our family of 5 and the deck and raft were where we spent most of our time from the moment we woke up. The pond is the cleanest we've ever swam in. This is a gem of a place and the sweet pond we will miss so much. Thank you to the Hawk family for letting us have a week of peace fishing, kayaking, picnicking, hiking and enjoying everything around us!

This cottage is prefect blend of peace and charm!

  • 5 of 5

We are looking forward to another wonderful visit at this perfect oasis of peace and charm. We rented this adorable cottage last summer and can’t wait to go back! The minute you walk through the door you completely relax. The pine wood paneling throughout, the main bedroom with its sliding glass door that looks out onto the lake and mountain, and the cozy guest room all create a fabulous retreat. The spacious deck overlooks the lake and the sandy shore is just steps away. We loved the quiet settings around us that allowed for complete tranquility. The kayaks allowed us to explore this awesome lake, which was fun. We are counting the days until we can get up there again. THANKS!

Great cottage with just few minor setbacks

  • 4 of 5

This place is just so nice if you love peace and quiet. To get to the place you have to drive down a pretty tough dirt road which has big rocks to avoid. But once your there it is so quiet because they don't allow motorboats on the pond. Who likes to wake up to boats speeding by? Not me so this was perfect.

The one downfall of this place is there is no shower inside. There is an outdoor shower. The shower has bugs and spiders living in the enclosure and they also pump up the water from the pond.

There was on thing that bothered me about the place. There is no indoor shower, only outdoor pumping pondwater. It's enclosed but open space on top and a good amount of spiders and bugs. My husband didn't mind that part but I was very uncomfortable.

It is very nice and well maintained. They even supply towels,washcloths, sheets and a whole lot of blankets is you need them. We only used the double bed. The mattress and pillows are just so comfortable.

I had invited a friend to come up with her 3 kids for the day. Then I texted her after we got there"

Owner's Response: We are thrilled that Tiffany and her family had a lovely visit to our cottage. And we are happy she recognized how peaceful it is. We are of course sorry that the dirt road was in poor shape when Tiffany arrived but unfortunately it had been compromised a bit at the time because of some serious rain run off but it has been smoothed out and is in much better shape now! Yes, the shower is outside (actually we love showering under the sky and pines!) but we are sorry that it was not bug free when Tiffany was there...although our housecleaner is supposed to do this task perhaps this one time she had forgotten. We are sorry that Tiffany was in any way disappointed but are pleased she found a quite oasis in NH!
