"The Podunk Cabin was one of our favorite cabins that we've rented over the years. Off a remote driveway to your own side of the lake. Breathtaking views (we were there at peak foliage time) and a nice little private island. The owners had stocked us up with wood for our indoor fireplace/woodstove and for the outdoor firepit. We cooked our own meals in a fully stocked kitchen. The furnishing is very cozy. My wife and I had a great time there just the two of us but I can tell that this would be a great place to bring my family in the Summer as well. Thank you Cathedral of the Pines for providing with a great vacation!"Guest: David C. Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: October 23, 2014View listing
"Four winds was perfect for our annual summer family vacation with grandparents, parents, and five children ages 6 to 12. We all enjoyed the pool and the fantastic views. The home is arranged so the whole group can congregate or so that anyone wishing some time away from the whole group can find a place to retreat to. We took several hikes, one of them easy enough for the older folks, spent time playing ball outside, enjoying the pool, playing some of the many games available, watching movies, admiring the beautiful surroundings, making use of the game room, and relaxing. We hope to visit it again, and highly recommend this place."Guest: Grammie Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 15, 2014View listing
"Paul and Ann's Lake Forest home was wonderful and exceeded our expectations. It's a spacious home and each room is cozier than the next--there was 7 of us and we felt like there was plenty of space. The decor is classic lake home with shelves of books, movies, and nicknacks that are interesting to look at. The house was clean and smelled fresh. The lake views were beautiful, especially after the Thanksgiving snowstorm came through and knocked out power through the weekend. Paul had his electrician out right away to get his generator started so we were powered back up except for the oven, which made for a fun challenge to get Thanksgiving dinner on the table. We cooked our turkey on the grill -- it was one of the best we'd ever tasted -- the dressing in the crockpot -- and everything else on the wood burning stove. We all loved it and the whole experience made for a wonderfully memorable Thanksgiving. We enjoyed the ping pong table in the basement and long walks around the neighborhood. It's in a very beautiful area. Keene and Brattleboro are close by and interesting towns to explore. I think everyone in our group left something at the house and Paul and Ann were extra sweet to get things back to us (thank you!) We hope to be back again some day and highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a vacation lake cabin."Guest: Ace Date of Stay: November 2014 Review Submitted: December 8, 2014View listing
"We had such a wonderful weekend at this lake house. We decided to host an early Thanksgiving Weekend so our children would be free to visit the rest of their families on Thanksgiving Day. We were a family of 10 ranging from 2-59. The beds were so comfortable and there was no shortage of blankets and pillows. The kitchen was completely stocked for a complete turkey dinner as well as all the family size meals prepared over the course of the weekend. From large soup pots, to casserole dishes, platters, you name it, it was there. Paul and Anne event took the time to make sure the table was set up for 10 and plug in a second refrigerator located downstairs. We enjoyed the hot tub, the kids rode bikes, skimmed rocks on the lake, played ping pong and pool. We were fortunate to hit over 50 degrees on Sunday and the big kids took the paddle boat out on the lake. We were so happy to have that wood stove since Friday and Saturday were extremely cold (18 degrees one night) We hope to make this a yearly tradition as everyone truly enjoyed being together for a whole weekend instead of a few hours on Thanksgiving Day!"Guest: Norma F.

Monadnock Region Travel Tips
Comfortable Monadnock Region Vacation Rentals
The Monadnock region is located in the southern part of New Hampshire. Known for its scenic beauty, historic covered bridges and rich cultural and historic heritage, it's a welcoming haven for vacationers. Monadnocks are unique geological features. They are so named because they are characteristically hard rock mounts made up of quartzite and volcanic rock that has remained after the surrounding softer rock has been eroded away. Scenic roadways and beautiful mountain vistas make fantastic photographic opportunities, especially in the fall season when the leaves turn all different shades of rusty hues.
In line with the beauty of the surrounding area, many of the rentals are stately homes set in beautiful gardens and mountain settings. Some are quiet cabins on a lakeshore where you can fish and boat in the lazy summer days. Others are tucked away in forest groves, offering tranquil seclusion and great opportunities for bird-watching. These homes may be in remote locations but almost all have full amenities of hot and cold running water, comfortable furnishings, cozy fireplaces, fully equipped kitchens and a host of modern conveniences. Many can accommodate small groups and extended families, and are often used for family reunions or small weddings. The Monadnocks is a region that you want to be able to explore at leisure and having a vacation home allows you the freedom to do just that. While out on your explorations, you can stock up with delicious fresh produce from one of the local farmers' markets and enjoy a home-cooked meal at the end of a busy day.
Changing Seasons in the Monadnocks
It's difficult to choose which season to visit Monadnock region cabins, for each has its own unique attractions. The summertime is great for exploring the lakes, quaint towns and villages, historic sites and hiking the forest trails. The fall is spectacularly beautiful with the foliage turning golden and red colors and creating a royal carpet on the forest floor. The season has its own magic and is a photographer's dream. As the cold winter months arrive, so does the snow, dusting everything in a sparkling white blanket. The towns and ski resorts are transformed into to a hive of activity, especially over weekends and holiday periods. As the snow melts, the forests and mountains once again become filled with vibrant colors and sounds of nature. Spring is an almost dream-like season in which to visit the Monadnocks.
Traveling in the Monadnocks
The Monadnocks are just a short drive from Boston, Hartford and New York City. Many visitors that come from other parts of North America use one of these cities as a hub to fly into and then travel to the region using a rental car. Because the towns and many of the Monadnock lodging options are quite remote, it's a good idea to have your own vehicle in which to explore the region.
Monadnock Region's Attractions
The area is famous for its beautiful covered bridges and there are route guides you can find at the local tourist centers which will guide you to the various sites. Well preserved and each one unique, it is well worth taking the time to seek them out. Throughout the year, there are festivals and events in the various towns and villages. A hot air balloon festival takes place each year in July and the colorful balloons can be seen soaring above the treetops. The Monadnock State Park has some excellent hiking trails. Maps are available from the park entrance points and hikers must be adequately prepared when heading out on the trails.
