My cottage is literally surrounded by the White Mountain National Forest, restaurants and dining in Woodstock and Lincoln, family-friendly activities at Loon Mountain Resort and Waterville Valley, hiking, biking, kayaking, tubing, fishing, hunting. The cottage is cozy and whimsical, and the views and sound of the brook are relaxing (especially from the hammock). The cottage is good for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids). The cottage is basic, think of grandpa's camp with paint!

The space
The cottage was originally built in the 1940's for the good ol boys to go hunting. In an effort to modernize without destroying the cottage camp feel - I brought the toilet inside the cottage. The original outhouse is still there but I have upgraded to an indoor flushing toilet! Also, I have a hot water heater for hot showers, and a water cooler for drinking water. I tried to respect the 1940's vintage feel by using colors and artwork from that era. To promote family time and the feel of 'yesteryear' I have many board games and a record player. There is no cable tv, but there are DVD's provided. There is no WIFI - but there are playing cards, a hammock, and a firepit to gather around.

Many people including myself love the 'rustic whimsical elegance' and are drawn to the eco-green vacation. The kitchen is basic, but I have supplied all of the cookware that you should need for a long weekend away - including a crock pot and plenty of pots and pans.

Guest access
The entire cottage is yours!! I ask that you respect that the shed is used for storage and is not really meant for guest use.

Other things to note
The cottage is literally in a valley within the White Mountains so cell service and WIFI can be spotty. Also, the cottage is located on a very remote private dirt road. It is narrow and bumpy, so please take your time.
