The accommodations were great, the location overlooking the lake is awesome.
We enjoyed our stay. From day one it fit like a glove.
I has been great to have you.

Very Cosy Place
We stayed here for 2 nights for my daughter's wedding in nearby Henniker, NH. There were 5 in people in our group. There was plenty of room for all of us. The extra room on the first floor is adorable, with sliding glass door bringing you directly to the lake.
The view from the upstairs master bedroom was stunning. We really enjoyed our stay, and would recommend your spot to anyone.
Charles reached out to confirm we got in w/ease. The lake was beautiful quiet & secluded.
Tucked away on a country road, a cozy cabin with good books, kayaks, quilts and cast iron skillets is ready for a weekend of simple living and loon song admiring.
Thank you for your inspiring description of our lake house retreat.
Your words are moving and we share your sentiments.
Serene retreat by the lake
We had a wonderful vacation away at Emerald Lake! We were very pleased with the rental. Mary and Charlie were great. Enjoyed coffee in the morning on the deck, heard the sounds of the loons at night, and watched the osprey fly overhead everyday. Last but not least we cannot forget our buddy the chipmunk that came out at 5pm everyday for a warm welcome and of course some peanuts.
Thank you so much for a great experience.
Perfect cozy winter retreat!
Enjoyable and relaxing! Great time with close friends and family. Couldn't ask for more.
I enjoyed our correspondence please that you enjoyed your stay.
We hope you’ll have a chance to to come again.
We had a great stay... the quiet and beauty combined with the great home was ideal!
We came from eastern end of Long Island via the ferry... with our two Cairn terriers (who enjoyed their many many walks).
The serenity of the house and the lake side presence and view contributed to my future writing project.
The house had all the amenities any guest would need or want.
We all enjoyed our stay... yes our doggies told us in their way that they enjoyed themselves.
The area is rural with some quaint towns nearby. The house is on the Hillsborough side of the Hillsborough/Henniker line.
Hillsborough has an old Historical Center; a visit there is like taking a trip back in time. There is a one-room school house, some old churches, grave yards, and an Art Gallery. You can also visit the barn workshop of the Gibson Pewter Craft and see cups being turned.
Hillsborough also has a more commercial district with an old fashion ice cream parlor, Peter's German Bakery, and Tooky Mill's Pub & Restaurant. Down on Main Street, you will find a Shaws Market, among other amenities.
Henniker, home of New England College, boast some excellent restaurants including the Colby Inn, for special occasions; the Country Spirit, for that local feel; and Daniel's Restaurant, which over looking the Contocook River.
Pat's Peak, in Henniker, is a wonderful family ski destination. Mt. Sunapee, another wonderful ski destination in Newbury, is also just a short drive away.
