About the Property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Study, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Summer Cabin For Rent
The Knoll Camp at Tolman Pond, Nelson, NH

Tolman Pond, in Nelson, NH, just ten miles north of Mt. Monadnock, offers a country retreat two hours from Boston. The Knoll Camp sits on a wooded knoll overlooking Tolman Pond: a 40-acre pond wooded on three sides, perfect for swimming, fishing, canoeing, kayaking (no motor boats allowed) and watching wildlife. There is a shared beach, swimming dock and clay tennis court. There’s easy access to local trails and dirt roads perfect for hiking and biking. It’s ideal for those looking for a slower pace and a friendly environment with room for privacy. It’s a welcoming place for children to play, explore and wear themselves out.

The camp was very well built in the 1920s as a summer camp and has remained a summer camp ever since. It has been modernized for safety and convenience (technology) without losing its rustic charm. The camp is one of five seasonal cottages, along with three Tolman households, making up a close-knit neighborhood dispersed among the trees and fields. The Tolman family, including many of their tenants, spans multiple generations, with some tenants renting into their third, fourth and even sixth generation.

Location

Car: Necessary

Tolman Pond is in the town of Nelson, which, in and of itself, is very interesting. Music of all sorts is our middle name: Monadnock Music, Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music, Monadnock Folklore Society (upholding our contra-dance capital of the world moniker!) − all have their roots in Nelson. In addition to being a destination for “summer people” (we have lots of lakes in town), Nelson is home to many artists, craftsmen, small business owners, a growing number of small farms, as well as those who commute to our neighboring towns for work. But it’s still too small (700 people or so) to have its own store, telephone exchange, or post office. We like it that way. But, we can find some of these things in the neighboring town of Harrisville (a five minute drive or an hour’s walk), a largely preserved National Historic Landmark early 19th century mill village, that’s shy on promoting tourism, but boasts the best General Store in the State of NH. We’re also within half an hour of Keene and Peterborough − towns that add a taste of reality to our lives here − banks, food, clothing, laundry, medical, etc.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1969

About the owner: We are fortunate to have inherited this 8th generation property in the 1960s − five summer rental camps centered around an historic 1790s farmhouse and a 40-acre pond. It is our job now to manage and care for this property in order to pass it along to the next generation.

Why the Owner Chose Nelson, NH, USA:
“Tolman Pond” is of historic significance in our small town of Nelson. Our history is robust and very interesting − from farming to boarding house, summer cabins to year-round resort with ski tow. The ski tow is gone, but the five cabins survive today and it is these that we rent out.
