Great cabin with a spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

Sandra was kind to accomodate my family when we needed a place to stay. The cabin is located right on the lake. The view is spectaclar. Sandra is a great hostess and made sure we had everything we needed during our stay.

The location is great because it is 15 minutes from Keene, NH which has so many restaurants to choose from and they are all excellent.

I highly recommend this cabin to everyone and would rent again from Sandra with no hesitations.

Great getaway!

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I wanted a peaceful getaway. That's exactly what we got. The lake is a beautiful serene place especially this time of year. The cottage was comfortable and a very affordable place. The owner was very easy to work with and we got our deposit back in less than a week. I recommend this cottage for anyone who is looking for a relaxing getaway while taking in the breathtaking view of forest lake.
