We loved it, but expect rustic

  • 4 of 5

The living room with fireplace was one of the coziest spots we have ever encountered, especially with feet of snow outside. We were looking to unplug for a few days and this cabin requires it because there are only a couple tv stations and no wifi (cell service was fine though). The cabin overall is rustic and old school, but the basics are all provided and everything functions just fine without modern frills. Cabin sits on a dead-end road that we found to be far enough away from route 16 that we felt quite secluded and never once worried about our dog making her way into traffic. The stream is literally feet from the cabin and is beautiful, and there are some expansive woods at the end of the road that offer some short hikes. As other reviews note, there are some signs that a couple mice are around (very minor signs), but we expected a bit of that for a cabin in the woods in the winter months. When you're looking for the place, note that it's on the same side of the road as Tanglewood motels (the pin on the map was a bit misleading). Well water has some iron in it, but I trust is safe and the owners provided some bottled drinking options. Owners were also very accommodating and available, despite being in the middle of going through some health issues. We'd go back.

Christmas in this cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this cabin in the woods for Christmas weekend. We loved having our dog with us. The fireplace was my favorite part as well as the beautiful stream right outside you could see from the couch. The cabin is close to all attractions. We had a wonderful time and the host made sure we found the place and that we were all set. She even offered to let us stay another night for free due to a snowstorm on the day we were checking out!!

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

Dear Paul,

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving at your place! Thanks for letting us have this experience.

Pros: The house is very charming, all the supplies provided, fire place/pit with all the fire wood.

Just perfect! We did some short walks around the house and had great time inside too!

Cons: No one was waiting for us. Therefore we had some negative first reactions because we didn't no what to do: 1. Founding the keys. 2. The house alarm was on, no idea how to disarmed it. 3. The house was freezing, I started the fire but the smoke alarm also triggered. 4. Where to keep the trash until we were gone because we saw a mice inside the house and didn't want to leave outside because of bears. Even though we had this negative first impressions, that cabin was amazing and this did not compromised our staying. I am just stating here as you asked for feedback.

Lovely cabin

  • 5 of 5

It was a perfect home base for our weekend of hiking. Although the weather had other plans. We enjoyed fires every evening in the fireplace and cooked outside on the fire pit as well as a few in.

The dogs loved swimming in the creek and we enjoyed how close we were to town.

Thanks for sharing your space with us.

Wonderful, cozy house by babbling brook

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the house by a babbling brook was wonderful! The owners were extremely nice when we met them for the key and a tour of their property. We were 4 adults and a dog staying in this cozy house in august. It was very peaceful being in the woods and listening to the water run in the brook that was behind the house. Our dog loved that he had plenty of room to run and play fetch and that there was a crystal clear brook he could swim and wade in. After going on many hikes and exploring in near by towns, we really enjoyed coming back to the house to relax by the fire place. There was also a little fire pit outside with a picnic table. The house had everything we needed. There were extra quilts incase it got cool at night, extra towels, plenty of firewood, coffee and kerig maker. We were mainly in NH for outdoor adventure such as hiking, canoeing, and fishing. There are plenty of places in close driving distance from the house. Their was also many stores in close driving distance to shop on a rainy day. We definitely plan on renting here again. Thank you to Paul and Barbara (the owners) for renting to us. The Dwyer's and Murphy the dog🐾�
