Great weekend getaway with the family

  • 5 of 5

Very nice cottage right on the water. Outside had everything needed to relax and enjoy the lake including kayaks. The lake was quiet and clean. Inside was an open floor plan and well appointed kitchen to cook in. We enjoyed eating while looking over the lake. This rental had all the “small things” that make it a great place to vacation. Make sure to pack everything since other than the small general store the nearest grocery is about 30 minutes away.

Contemporary, comfortable and cozy lake cottage

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Bordulac Cottage twice now and both times absolutely loved it. The house is furnished in a contemporary and comfortable way. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking, and it's a lovely place to stay even when the weather turns grey and rainy. The lake is beautiful. And it's quiet and private while still being close enough to grocery stores, etc. I grew up in that area of the country and there's so much to do in the surrounding area. Si is always super helpful and nice. And our deposit was returned promptly.

Stunning lake views, charming home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a relaxing week here and we were sad to leave! Even with 2 adults and 4 kids (ages 10 - 2) we found the cottage roomy enough for the limited time we spent indoors. The small beachy area and shallow water gave my kids hours of entertainment and made it easy to get the kayaks in and out of the water. The property owner is thoughtful enough to provide everything you need for the week, from life preservers to a well stocked kitchen. This was one of our favorite vacations and will absolutely be returning.

Multiple kayaks, canoe and clean modern life vests were enjoyed. Easy entry into the water and shallowness would make this an ideal spot for youngsters to spend hours. Morning sun for July, but tall trees shaded in afternoon private beach and deck for the most part- so this encouraged us to venture out on rafts or boating during those times where the venturing was pleasant and carefree! We had some cool cloudy weather so thankfully we were warned to pack sweatshirts cuz we certainly needed them, and when it was sunny the deck blazed us with hot early sun.

We had a very peaceful and relaxing week. The house was very clean and nicely decorated. The lake during the week was quiet and great for kayaking. Loved the raspberries!

About Si

As a U.S. Foreign Service family often working overseas, we love to return to the lake in New Hampshire as often as possible.

Si purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Si chose Stoddard

After renting summer homes in southern New Hampshire for years, we finaly bought our own and turned it into the place we would want to rent. We hope you'll find living on the lake as relaxing as we do.

What makes this cottage unique

The 180 degree view of hills and trees across the lake from our front deck and nearly all the rooms makes doing a lot, or nothing, equally worthwhile.
