About the property

This is a four season home on a quiet secluded spring fed 100 acre pond. The views are beautiful and the swimming and fishing are great. Close to 3 major cities for things to do. The perfect get away for the stress of city life. Week rentals only in peek season June, July and Aug.

Soon to come: We will be having new cabins built sometime in the future. They will be in a very private and quiet location in Warner NH near MT Sunapee for skiing in the winter and Lake Sunapee in the summer, only a 10 min. drive. With hiking and fishing near by. You can email for further info. Thank you, Wayne and Autumn

New deck, views: We have added a porch across the front of the cottage. A great place to sit and take in the sun set and look over the water only 10 feet away.

Artesian well: No need to bring your own water the water is great

Wonderful place.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time here. It was so much better than the pictures. The owner was wonderful and welcoming. We felt right at home. It had everything we could have wanted or needed. We hope to go back next summer for a week.

Fall Colors w/Peace & quiet

  • 5 of 5

We arrive during a rain storm, cold and damp. Not the best way to start a vacation.

Wayne was a great host. He put lights on for us to find our way upon arrival

The next days lifted our spirits even with some rain.

The cabin was even nicer than the picture, warm and comfortable.

All the amenities for a gourmet cook or not.

We love being on the water, listening to the birds...

Fall is a magical time and you are not to be disappointed.

Rain hitting the metal roof lulls you off to sleep

Take a book, your favorite drink and sit on the deck and enjoy.

Phone usage and internet can be a little spotty at times.

You're on vacation, put the electronics away!!

Thank you for a relaxing visit

Great cabin, very comfortable, accomodating

  • 5 of 5

This has been a comfortable repeated stay cabin for us. Wayne and Autumn have a beautiful, well decorated and clean cabin loaded with amenities you might need. A relaxing and secluded area with beautiful views, loons and other assorted wildlife. Definitely a great place to stay

Summers Delight

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome week we had at Autumn and Wayne's summer cottage ! The exceptional hospitality extended to us by Autumn and Wayne was truly outstanding ! The cottage has everything you could possibly ask for, clean and in such a beautiful setting. Our labs Pepper and Riley had tons of fun fetching tennis balls and sticks in wild goose pond. The kayaking was a delight and the fishing was superior ! Thank you Autumn and Wayne for an extraordinary vacation week !! All the best to you, stay safe - Flora and Steve

Peaceful, relaxing, charming, inviting

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this cabin! It was incredibly comfortable and relaxing. We couldn't get enough of the view of the pond. And we enjoyed watching wildlife (loons, ducks, herons and even a hummingbird). Kayaking on the pond was lots of fun! And the owner Wayne was wonderful to work with from start to finish. We can't wait to go back!
