“On golden pond”

Reviewed 25 Jun 2015

We had a lovely week--well equipped,charming ,comfortable cottage--dog loved it too-we hoped for a slow, relaxed time by the water in the woods--had exactly that!

“Remembering the old days!”

What a wonderful quiet place to relax and get back to nature. Loved our time at the cottage. All was very clean and had all the comforts of home. The fireplace was great on the cold evenings with a glass of wine. Day time was fun going to all the antique places that are within minutes of the cottage. We are hoping to return in the summer time next year so we can enjoy the water more than in September.

“On Golden Pond, but much better.”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2014

We were unplugged, wet from swimming, warm by the fire, and full from eating all day! How wonderful to have three generations present, in every sense of the word, and getting to know each other again after years apart. Perfect.

“Excellent vacation”

Reviewed 6 Sep 2013

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”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2013

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.

“A Place to Make Memories”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2012

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”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2010

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.
