All the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

I can't imagine staying anywhere else if we returned to the Pittsburg area. This rental was everything we had hoped it would be and more. The camp had all the comforts of home but still had the rustic charm we were looking for in a vacation rental. We loved being able to make some of our meals at home and then relax in the recliners in front of the gas fireplace. The camp and yard were spotless and is obviously very well cared for. The location is perfect - easy access to restaurants, food shopping, hiking trails and Moose Alley (also the ATV/snowmobile trail access is just across the road). Nikki could not have made the rental process easier or more pleasant. She checked in to be sure our stay was great before we even made it home!

For dinner we highly recommend Tracy's Hillside Grille - it was fantastic and very reasonably priced. Their cheese battered fried brocolli appetizer was easily the best vegetable dish I have ever eaten! We also ate at Buck Rub Pub (not so good but it might have just been what we ordered) and at Rainbow Grille at Tall Timber Resort which is just a short walk from the camp (dinner there was fabulous and a little more "fancy"). We heard that breakfast at Happy Corner Cafe was delicious but never got there ourselves.

We recommend the hikes to Fourth CT Lake, Garfield Falls, Mt Magalloway Tower, Falls in the River, and Johnson Memorial Forest (this is an easy "woodland walk" just across from the fire station on Rt 3). Easy access to Colebrook and the Dixville Notch area via Route 145. Also make sure to visit the East Inlet (especially if you plan to kayak). We saw a moose cow with a calf right on the side of Rt 3. We also saw a grey fox, deer, and tons of cool birds. The dock was great for fishing. If you love bird/animal watching, hunting, fishing, kayaking, beautiful scenery, waterfalls, etc. this is the perfect place! Make sure you get a map of the area that includes the logging roads so you can really get out there and explore (we bought ours for $3.50 at the Tall Timber Resort just down the road).

Relaxing, peaceful, kayaking paradise.

  • 5 of 5

Property was exactly as presented. Incredibly clean, everything was available that was required to have meals, perfect cottage for a couple, enjoyed the canoe that was available for renters' use. Went to Scott's Bog for a relaxing canoeing experience. Also spent the day on 1st Connecticut Lake with our motor boat. Lake levels had been dropped so unable to launch at Lake Francis or 2nd Connecticut Lake which was somewhat disappointing. Loons, eagles, herons, ducks, Canadian geese were the main attractions on the water. Sunsets were gorgeous from the deck. Ate out only once due to enjoying the relaxing views from the deck each evening. Liked the village of Colebrook and drove Route 26 east toward Errol. Stopped at several falls areas and just a beautiful drive. LLCote Store in Errol was very impressive for anyone interested in making any sporting purchases. Awesome week!!!! TGreen

We enjoyed our week at Westwood very much.

  • 4 of 5

The place was immaculate upon our arrival. Lack of hot water in the kitchen was remedied within a day upon notification to the owner. The sunsets were just gorgeous. The shallow water made for a great swimming spot. The cleaning lady was very friendly and helpful, especially when we locked ourselves out of the cabin. Having both a large deck and a sunporch made for two great places to relax and enjoy the view. Beds were comfy and cable TV and Wi-Fi were much appreciated.

Small but cozy. Great location.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a very relaxing getaway on Back Lake. The cottage is cute and perfect for a couple. Bedrooms and bathroom are very small and would not have been spacious enough had we brought our two teenagers along. The sunsets are beautiful, we very much enjoyed the fire pit and the garage storage space was perfect for keeping our UTV out of the rain. We would certainly consider staying here again.
