Myself, my husband and our two boys, aged 14 and 12, had a fantastic week at Faraway Pond. The accommodation was perfect and pristine, as was the lake. The location is stunning, and ideally situated for exploring the surrounding area, Mount Washington, Flume Gorge, the Mountain Tramway and the town of Littleton are all within easy driving distance. Faraway Pond itself has so much to offer, we spent most of our time there - kayaking, paddle-boarding, swimming, fishing, and exploring the trails around the property. Mary could not have been more welcoming and helpful, and it was nice to have her, (and her dog Gracie!), close by. Mary was very busy putting the finishing touches to an Events Barn being built on the property, but she always found time to answer any questions we had. When our 14 year old asked about fishing, Mary quickly arranged for two fishing poles to be dropped off at the cottage for us. We wanted for nothing - on arrival there was a cooler filled with soda out on the deck, tea and coffee were provided, milk, butter, all the basics, and so much more!
Our boys slept on two cots which were provided, and were very comfortable. Easy to put up at night and take away again in the morning.
My favorite thing to do was to get up with the sunrise and take my tea out on to the deck to take in the views of the lake waking up. It really is breathtaking, and so tranquil.
Not an easy place to leave, and if Mary will have us we will most definitely be returning - the sooner the better!
Thank you, Mary, for making your home available to us, and for making us feel like we belonged there.
