Why Patricia Freeman chose Georges Mills

We purchased this cottage knowing extensive renovations were needed-but also knowing that when completed we would have the home we were looking for! Warm and relaxing. A spot the family would love to retreat to!

Better than advertised!

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect for a family or to use as a ski cabin among friends. Very quiet road on a pond that seems almost private. There is a corner store with gas and a deli about 1/4 from the cabin. And the place had everything you needed from linens to even some condiments and new dishware. Also a bunch of board games. The fire place is large and wood is provided. The only downside is the TV is tiny and old. They have every channel but it's not in HD. Overall it is the best rental I've had on Air bnb or VRBO. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Otter Pond Cottage is simply perfect! The cottage has been beautifully updated but still has it's wonderful historic charm. Patricia has made sure that everything you might need is there. And, if there are questions, requests or problems Caretaker Rick is quick to respond. There are endless places to visit and things to do in the area. Or, just sit on the porch or dock and enjoy the beautiful and peaceful view.

Charming in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We just loved the cottage on Otter Pond. We were completely relaxed with an hour of arriving. The amenities make this truly a home away from home. It lacks nothing for a comfortable and easy to manage vacation. Patricia makes the rental process painless. She is great to work with and communicates in a timely and thorough manner. The location is so close to Sunapee, New London and Dartmouth/Hanover.

Beautiful Location and Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Cottage was very nice, quite location and enjoyed the stay.

Friendly neighbors, easy access to local attractions and shopping.

Boat access to pond was excellent via new dock; however kayak access a bit more challenging due to rocks.

Excellent stay would recommend to others

Perfect blend of rustic with modern amenities

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at Otter Pond Cottage. It was the perfect blend of rustic with modern amenities. We were attending a family reunion at a cousin's house across the pond. Other relatives came to see the cottage and wished they had stayed here instead of a local B&B. The kitchen had everything you would need. The beds were very comfortable. Our favorite spot was the porch with our morning coffee and muffins from the local market within walking distance. We would definitely stay here again.
