There is a full kitchen for those who enjoy cooking and wood stove for cozying up, as well as an outdoor hot tub for total indulgence:) if you don't like to stay home you are less than a half hour to basically anything you may want to do: shopping, restaurants, movies, minigolf, ice cream, funspot (bowling, arcade etc.), gokarts, golf, ropes courses, riding, downhill skiing, and more.


                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2010

                          About the owner: We have three children 13, 11, and 8 and live on the North Shore of Boston. Our eldest has Tuberous Sclerosis, Epilepsy and Autism and had a complicated brain surgery that, resulted in five brain surgeries, two brain hemorrhages and a brain infection , the cost of which is necessitating our renting our beloved vacation home. We all love being up there so much that most of the time we're there we never leave the property:) There's so much for everyone to do, and nothing and all! SOOO relaxing!!

                          Why the Owner Chose Alton:
                          Our little cabin has it all. You are less than two hours from Boston, (1.5 from our house) and you feel like you are completely away. As I've said before there are tons of outside activities and plenty to do inside as well. Sometimes you want to hike, swim, boat, down hill ski, or play games, and sometimes all you want to do is look out on the lake, read your book, drink your tea and listen to the loons.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                          This cabin is right on the water in the summer and less than a half hour to down hill skiing and just about anything else you may want or need to do all year through.
