Love nature? Watch humming birds, cardinals, woodpeckers, goldfinches and other feathered friends at our feeders. Our bunny we fondly call Tippy III is a daily visitor. You may DEFINITELY see a pair of Bald Eagles. They've become regular visitors to the lake below. An Osprey diving for fish, a Cooper's hawk on the hunt -- complete the 'National Geographic'-like picture. Relax with a book from our extensive, eclectic library, play board games or pop a DVD in one of 2 players – one is portable.
Pontoosuc Lake is a water paradise. Swim, picnic, power or sailboat ride (A boat rental is down the road.). Fall brings spectacular foliage reflecting off water, powerboats disappear. The lake becomes quiet. Graceful kayaks and canoes appear serene. Later, eerie shadows and sparkling snow bestow a magical landscape.
