Beautiful property & Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location-nice and quiet serene getaway in the woods with a BEAUTIFUL waterfall and swimming area for the dogs! Cindy was great to deal with, very responsive and helpful! Location was perfect too-close to Polar Caves and Ruggles Mine. Great restaurants right nearby also!

Relaxing, Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Cynthia helped make our little time away, smooth and easy! The house is adorable, beautiful much to do around the area, but you might not want to leave the house/brook/property to do anything else! Can't wait to come back. Thanks so much! :)

Wonderful relaxing vacation experience

  • 5 of 5

My husband, adult daughter and 2 dogs and I stayed at the house for a week in August. Our other 2 adult children visited as well. We had a wonderful vacation, and really enjoyed the waterfalls and brook. Our dogs especially loved splashing and playing on the sandy beach. The brook had ample running water when we arrived. Midweek, we had a day of rain, which quickly replenished the waterfalls, making for big changes, much faster water and awesome sights. We enjoyed exploring up the brook as well. We hiked almost every day. Rattlesnake Mountain, Cardigan Mountain, Stinson Mountain and the Quincy Bog Trail were maybe our favorites. We loved the pizza at the Tavern in Rumney. Ripple Pottery on Rte. 25 had lovely handicrafts for sale. There is also a good quilt store and a nice yarn shop on Rte. 25. Cindy and Bob were easy to work with and responded quickly to any questions. We really enjoyed our vacation!

A little piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to have a relaxing vacation. The waterfall is awesome. You can hear it from the downstairs bedroom and the deck. Cindy, the owner was wonderful and responded quickly to my emails about bringing my elderly dog. He had a wonderful time and loved the river. The house is quite lovely and well maintained and had everything you needed for a vacation. The front of the house is close to the road, so you do hear traffic occasionally, but it is not a distraction at all. And be sure to use the fire pit by the river- it's great. We will definitely be coming back again.

Unplugged Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We booked this as a relatively last minute getaway in July 2013. Cindy was more than awesome to work with to iron out the details. She gave us tips on what to do in the area, too! There are brochures in the house for anything you might be interested in doing (based on season).

The description of the place listed cannot really describe the beauty of the waterfalls/brooks on the property. My fiance and I went with our dog, and not only did we get to have a relaxing time, our high energy dog was pooped everyday from frolicking in the brook and playing fetch in their generously sized backyard! Can't beat 8 acres of private property...and the trails on the property!

Although I was a little hesitant at first to go somewhere that didn't have Wi-Fi or cell reception, we didn't have any qualms once we arrived and didn't even care about not being able to be reached (except via the house landline). Upon our arrival, it was 90+ degrees, and since there is no AC at the house, the property manager/cleaners had turned on all of the fans and opened the windows so that the house would be manageable to be in! Thanks Bob!!

And even though it's very private, it's also very convenient to a Super Walmart where we got everything that we could need for the trip, only 6-7 miles away. Loon Mountain is also only about 35-40 minutes away for any activities such as Zip-lining/Hiking, etc.

TIP - you will need a calling card to make outgoing non-local phone calls. Unfortunately that Walmart and Dollar Tree did not sell calling cards, so make sure you buy one before embarking on the trip!

perfect return visit

  • 5 of 5

We first visited Cindy's great rental last winter and were excited to return this year. We were not disappointed - everything in the house was still perfect and with this mild winter instead of last year's piles and piles of snow, we got to see a bit more of the beautiful woods and brook near the house.

I cannot recommend this place highly enough - it's beautiful and relaxing and Cindy is a joy to deal with. You will definitely not regret visiting here.
