Excellent vacation

Situated in a quiet wooded area, the period cabin is just a few feet from a picturesque lake. The use of the canoe and rowboat was a major plus, which we used to successfully fish for bass. The hosts were very accommodating and friendly and made our stay a pleasure.

Memorable Vacation

We have rented many homes in New Hampshire over the years, and this lovely rustic home on Jenness Pond ranks as one of the best. The house was large and roomy, the kitchen was very well equipped, the beds were comfortable, and the fishing was great! The only negatives were the tiny shower with low water pressure and the slight traffic noise from the highway across the pond. We loved the daily visits and unsightly chorus from the loons, as well as the hammock and canoe. The fire pit for roasting marshmallows was great. There were too many chairs for summer reading to count! We also appreciated the close proximity to the sea coast and the big lake. A very memorable vacation--wish we could have stayed longer.

Fond Memories

My family rented this cottage last summer. My husband and I have two children, 12 and 9 at the time. My mother-in-law also joined us for the week. The cottage is rustic, but adorable. It was clean, quaint and quiet. The setting is lovely if you are looking for peace and quiet. It was nice in the age of electronics to unplug just a bit although there is a t.v. and we did get limited cell phone service. Instead of video games we played cards and board games. Our kids and dog had a fantastic time swimming in the lake. The location is good as Portsmouth and Manchester are both within a reasonable drive. I would recommend a trip to Portsmouth as it is a lovely little city. The only down sides to the cottage were that the grill was not in working order so we were not able to bbq, and the places to eat in the area were somewhat limited. In spite of that we had a fun week and left with some fond memories.

A Place to Make Memories

This cottage, on the shore of Jenness Pond, was absolutely lovely. Filled with ambiance, we especially enjoyed the antique furnishings, the plethora of books ranging from the 1920s to today, and the games. The basics were definitely taken care of...the beds were comfortable, the place was clean, and the kitchen was well-stocked w/ every cooking apparatus you could ever need (plus, a propane grill) . It was perfect for our multi-generation family of 7, ranging in age from 7 to 83. Something for everyone. My husband and I slept on the bed on the screened in porch. How divine to fall asleep to the sound of loons and frogs! Our girls loved the lake and jumping off the floating dock. So did our dog! My 83-year-old mother-in-law mostly watched us from the screened in porch during the day, but then spent her evenings whooping us at various games. My two active sisters-in-law, who took full advantage of swimming and canoeing. My wild blueberry picking expeditions led to many mornings full of blueberry muffins and blueberry pancakes. We also enjoyed roasting hotdogs and marshmallows at the fire ring. Janet and Doug (the owners) were very welcoming. Janet let my daughters feed her horses and Doug gave us a wonderful tour of their lovingly renovated bed and breakfast. A place to make memories, for sure. And to go back to year after year.

Charming lakeside cottage

We stayed here with our 2 small children in a lovely old cottage. The best features are it's wrap around porch with a bed on it where you can listen to the loons and bullfrogs at night. It is lakeside with a great little beach and very private. For our kids the water was great, it's shallow quite a ways out so the kids could play and we didn't need to worry too much about them. A lovely place to stay where we created great memories.
