"My teenage son, his friend, and I enjoyed a week at Pocumtuck in June -- we wished we could have stayed longer/forever! This comfortable lake house was perfectly situated in a quiet cove with a wonderful, protected sandy beach area that would be perfect for smaller children. The dock, swimming raft, and deck overlooking the lake were favorite spots, as was the screened sleeping porch. Beautiful sunset views! It is on the "rustic" side, but everything you need for a wonderful vacation is here, in a way that makes you feel like you have stepped back into a quieter, more civilized time. Appliances were new and in excellent working order. We used the wifi but seldom felt the need to tune into the news of the larger world, so happy were we with our little life on the lake. We loved the historical touches throughout the house, which made us feel part of the family and the overall story. A nesting pair of loons and an occasional visit from a murder of crows added to the happy ambience and our contentment. This is a camp that is conducive to lounging, reading, doing puzzles, playing board/card games and doing what people used to do before tv and computers. We didn't want to leave, and we will be back -- hopefully for longer than a week next time!"

"I couldn’t say enough great things about this property. I made the unfortunate mistake of booking the same week as the Laconia Motorcycle week, but since the property contained everything that we needed, we didn’t have to battle the crowds in town for entertainment! The kids were able to fish w/o an Out of State fishing license, but the adults got theirs to that they could fish off the private dock, too. It was so nice to have everyone in the same area but also participating in different activities. The back of the house is set up in tiers so people on the top deck were able to yell down to the people on the dock if needed. The boats were regularly used for fishing as well as a relaxing paddle out into the cove. Once you go through the culvert pipe to Paugus Bay, the water was a bit more choppy, so it made it hard to paddle. We were able to see the train go by a few times, but since they weren’t on a regular schedule due to Motorcycle Week, we were unable to ride it. The kitchen had everything we needed, the dining table and bar counter fit 8 adults and 3 children perfectly. We ate together for every dinner that entire week. It was wonderful. The property owners were extremely accessible and friendly as well as professional and knowledgeable. The house sits at the end of a sort of hollow, so you don’t have the constant back-and-forth traffic that you may have at other properties. The laundry was a nice added feature since we decided to pack light on the clothes. We were able to re-use the same articles of clothing over and over as well as drying out bathing suits/beach towels before packing them up to come home. We experienced one rainy day but were kept entertained with all the Wii games and movies that came with the downstairs rec room. The one funky thing that we never got a hold of were which of the house’s switches went with which lights. Needless to say, there were some lightshows going on before bed each night as we tried to turn everything off J
We would love to come back as our family from Arizona was able to fly into Boston and take the short 2 hour drive into the property as well as it being within driving distance for all of us coming from Ohio .
Unforgettable memories had by all ages!! Thank you for lending us your home for that time, Allison and Robb, and have a great summer!"
