A Charming Escape

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with your two young children spent a glorious week at this cottage on Kimball Pond. The cottage immediately felt like home when we arrived. The rooms were neat and tidy and decorated beautifully. No detail was overlooked: little bud vases with fresh flowers adorned the bedside tables; pancake mix and syrup awaited us on the kitchen counter; a hidden closet full of board games... we all enjoyed discovering every bit of the house as soon as we entered the door. Every room had a view of the peaceful pond. The beach was sandy and clean and the water was crystal clear. The kids enjoyed playing in the water and jumping off the swim platform. North Conway is a cute town that we ventured to on occasion, but spent most of our time relaxing at the cottage. Our favorite parts of the day were the quite mornings enjoying coffee and watching the loons swim across the pond, and our family kayak rides in the evening. We made wonderful memories here and can't wait to return for another visit!

Owner's Response: Thank you Julie for taking the time to write such a wonderful review! I love hearing from guests about the wonderful memories created with their children. I am glad you enjoyed the bud vases filled with flowers from the garden, which has been maintained by the same gardener for 15 years! I do hope you and your family can return again soon. Thanks again, Krista.

most amazing honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had booked this place even before we picked out any details for our wedding. When I found this camp online I knew it would be perfect. This cottage exceeded our expectations. When we pulled into the driveway we couldn't help but be in awe. It was absolutely breathtaking. We stepped out and couldn't stop looking at the gorgeous view. Going inside the cottage I felt like a small child in a toy store running from feature to feature. "Look at the fireplace, look at this kitchen, look at this shower!!" The details that went into decorating this place must have taken forever. You feel at home here. My husband and I love fishing and the outdoors and being so close to the water was a must. We caught so many fish and they were huge!! Best part of it all, was that we were not even five feet from the house. The hot tub was very clean and relaxing. The only thing that I could possibly say that I was unsatisfied with was the size of the shower door. It was really hard for us to get in and out because it was so small. The weather that we had during our stay was good and bad but it didn't matter. The house is stocked with any board game you could imagine. We spent hours sitting in the living room with hot cocoa and playing games. If you have children, this is a great place to go. You have views of the entire property from inside the house, firepit, and hot tub. The water is unbelievably clean and clear and is shallow for a good distance. If you are reading this review and your planning on coming to this cottage then I honestly hope you enjoy every second like we did. If you are reading this review and you are looking at other properties then I strongly suggest you stop and pick this place. There is no possible way you could be dissapointed here. It is the most perfect place to stay, in all honesty.

Owner's Response: Thank you Annie! I am happy to know you and Joe enjoyed your stay, and were able to create such special memories on your honeymoon. Your review was a perfect description of how wonderful it can be to relax and spend time enjoying the fireplace and coziness of the cottage. Our family has created many wonderful memories, just as you described. We’d love to have you return someday soon - perhaps for an anniversary. Thanks again for taking the time to write such a wonderful review!

Beyond Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The only reason I'm giving this property 5 stars is because 10 stars was not an option! We had such an amazing week hiking in the White Mtns and spending time on the coast. Our favorite memories, however, revolve around our time sitting out by lake watching for (and occasionally trying to call) loons or stargazing, or sitting by the fireplace. We were so comfortable and felt so at home. The kitchen was better stocked than my own! Usually, after a week of vacation, we're ready to get home. This is the first place we've stayed where I could have stayed forever! Thank you Rob and Krista for an unforgettable celebration of our 25 years together!

Owner's Response: Thank you Laurie and Troy for such an amazing review! We are honored that you chose our cottage for your 25th anniversary. It’s always so great to hear from our guests about their stay and activities. You truly enjoyed the best of both worlds; days trips to the coast and hiking in the nearby White Mountains. Our best wishes for many more years of happiness together and we hope that you will return again soon! Thanks again…Krista and Rob.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was the most wonderful family vacation. The house is beautiful, comfortable, and the views breathtaking. The home is so well appointed. It had everything from a cook's kitchen to a large book and dvd collection . We swam, paddled, fished, watched the loons, and lounged. There is plenty to do nearby but we did not want to leave. The kayaks and outdoor shower were a wonderful surprise. We cannot wait to come back. Worth every penny!

Owner's Response: Thank you Talya for your review! I am so happy to know you and your family enjoyed your time at the cottage. I agree with you, some days it’s hard to leave the peacefulness of the lake. We designed the kitchen with that in mind – for our guests to have everything they need to prepare a meal at the cottage. I do hope you and your family will return again soon! Krista

A perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

We should have known when we pulled into the drive and 3 loons were swimming across the lake to greet us that this was going to be a magic experience. As we walked into the cottage, I thought I had stepped into a photo essay from a high end decorating magazine. There was not one thing lacking from the kitchen, the bath, to the outside recreation.

It was so peaceful that the leaves falling from the trees and beating of the birds wings at the bird feeder were the loudest sound we heard. My husband is a "wired" person, Wifi was a must. By the 3rd day, he had picked up a hard back from the bedside stand and actually finished a book before we left.

The fog lifting from the lake in the morning unvailing the mountains and the fall folliage was breath taking. Only to be trumped by the sunsets and stars at night.

If you need to be active there is so much to do within a short drive to North Conway and the White Mountain National forest.

I was very hesitant to write a glowing review because it's the type of place you want to keep to yourself so that you can come back again and again.

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful cottage with us.

Owner's Response: Thank you Beth and Jim for this great review! I am so glad the loons were there to greet you; many guests who arrive have never seen or heard loons before. They truly are part of the quintessential Maine experience. Thank you for also mentioning how peaceful the location is. With North Conway and the surrounding Mountain Washington Valley just a short drive away, it allows our guests to fill their days with activities then return to the cottage for a beautiful sunset by the lake. We look forward to having you as guests again next year! Thanks again, Krista.
