Exceeded our expectations. House is great and clean. Beds comfortable. Kitchen has everything and is up to date. The pond was a huge hit and the view from the porch having a morning coffee was a great way to start the day. Nightly fires at the fire pit was a perfect finish.
Nice Retreat on Songo Pond
This past Columbus Day weekend, I took our family to Bethel, ME to do some hiking. The cottage we stayed at was in a great location, right on Songo Pond. The accomodations were great, the trails fantastic, and the events at Sunday River fun (though we missed the Fall Festival). We had plenty of room in the house for five adults and one child, and ample room for our three Australian Cattle dogs to run and play in the yard. We took full advantage of the dock (a little tight for our group) just enjoying the quietness of nature and the pond. I recommend this place for anyone that wants to get away and relax.
Songo pound is quiet, warm and perfect for families.
We loved it!
Family friendly, away from the hustle, but enough fun within a beautiful drive
This selection was left up to my wife, with one stipulation....must be within an hour of a couple of 4,000 footers in NH. Have to say this place is that and more!
Sitting on Songo Pond this home was perfect for our young children. On a typically day during our visit we would spend 1/2 the day out and about and the rest of the time relaxing, giving the children time to take a dip in the pond.
Everyone loved the set up of this home. Open kitchen to the living area allowed us all to congregate and talk. Separate seating area to enjoy the view of the pond could be opened or closed off with the sliding doors. Plenty of room upstairs in the bedrooms and the 2 bathrooms made sure it was easy for us to get ready each day. I don't remember a single complaint.
This place is about 40 - 45 minutes to Wildcat Mtn and the Mount Washington auto road. Easily meeting the sole stipulation set. It's just under an hour to Storyland and about an hour to North Conway. We also took a quick 30 minute ride down to Norway, where there was a comic and card shop for my son to explore. We also ate at a wonderful vegan restaurant there that satisfied my mother in-law.
Bethel was a quick 10 minute ride, where we would grab coffee at the only place we know in town, Di Cocoa's. I also picked up a fantastic sandwich for my hike up Wildcat Mtn. and highly recommend. Couple of shops on the main street here as well. Having stayed in the area before there are some great restaurants throughout the town and recommend picking up the tourist map. If you are in the need of a budget friendly and extremely casual night out (think local pub/dive bar, live music) there is Sudbury's Pub, just tucked behind the Sudbury's Inn (you will see the OPEN flag on the side of the building).
It the junction in town, there is a great park with an enclosed playset for young kids and a skate park around the corner, and a walking path.
Sunday River is only a 15 minute ride and a great place to explore during the summer (if you mountain bike you can look into getting a pass to ride their trails). This is was my favorite place to snowboard in my younger years and I hope to return when my children are a little older. We took the kids up the Chondola for the 1st time. My daughter wasn't a huge fan, but the next morning and on our ride home she kept asking to go to the top of the mountain.
Cozy place on a very clean pond
Really enjoyed our stay. Would love to return next Summer. Very clean place and quiet. The cabin was stocked with everything imaginable. The pond was very clean and only had non invasive pickerel weed and water shields. Mussels can be seen on the sandy bottom which is a good sign. Only complaint was the occasional speed boats and water skiers that disrupted fishing from the kayaks.
Wonderful stay, exactly as advertised.
We just completed a two week stay with no issues. The house was spotless and exactly as pictured in the photographs. The location was very quiet and local neighbors were quite friendly. We had a few questions during our stay and the owner responded immediately.
We would highly recommend this property.
