Rustic Beauty On Quiet Pond: 3 Bedrooms, Sleeps 5

Ideal spot for couples, families and friends to escape from the buzz of civilization and just relax in the private, wooded setting or experience a whole host of area activities and sites that are just a short ride away. After visiting our cottage, we think you'll want to make it an annual vacation destination.

Summer guests may enjoy swimming, fishing, canoeing and frog catching in the quiet, trout stocked pond. In the fall, you'll find a dazzling display of fall foliage and plenty of festivals and community activities. Winter skiers and outdoor enthusiasts - bring your ice skates, skis, snowboards. Pat's Peak is only 5 miles away and many other ski areas are just a short drive.

The rustic beauty of our getaway on French Pond has a peaceful ambiance and relaxing charm, but offers easy access to many area sites and activities.

Here is an email we received from a previous guest...

'Our time at the pond was heavenly and provided a rest that we all really needed. Thank you for giving our family such a beautiful place to unwind and reconnect. My husband had been hesitant to leave his busy practice but after a couple of days realized he was in the exact right spot.'

Less than 1.5 hours from Boston, Henniker is a charming college town nestled along the Contoocook River with it's own covered bridge right at the village center. As you familiarize yourself with Henniker, you'll be delighted by the warm, small town atmosphere. Explore the quaint eateries, the century old pharmacy/toy shop or grab a bite at Intervale Farm Pancake House & Ice Cream Stand. In the colder months, you can enjoy winter fun at Pat's Peak Ski Resort just 5 miles from your doorstep!

Entering the cottage, guests are greeted by floor-to-ceiling windows providing a panoramic view of the pond. The rustic entryway features the cabin's original hearth (decorative only), vaulted ceilings and a bookcase filled with games, books and DVDs.

Off the entryway, there is a full bath with shower. Moving into the cottage, the entrance opens up to a Great Room with open concept. The living room, furnished with a comfy overstuffed couch and chair, features a TV, stereo and BluRay/DVD player.

Facing the pond is a bright and airy sun-room with wicker couch, chair and settee. The sun-room flows into the fully equipped kitchen with an expandable dining table (seats 8), refrigerator, stove, microwave, and coffeemaker.

An oversized deck extends the entire length of the cottage with a large staircase which leads to the small, private beach area and dock. Below the deck are a canoe and paddle boat for guest use.

Master Bedroom (sleeps 2):

Queen bed, water view, attached 1/2 bath, walkout to deck, ceiling fan, TV/DVD player, closet and antique dressing table.

Twin Bedroom (sleeps 2):

New Hampshire's state capital is less than 15 miles away with interesting shops, eateries and site-seeing. Shopping: Main street has a few cute shops and a rather large quilting store. Large retailers (Walmart, Target, BestBuy) can be found in Concord along with a shopping mall and movie theater. Outlet shopping is less than 40 minutes away in Tilton, NH.

Restaurants: Intervale Farm Pancake House is a favorite stop for Sat or Sun breakfast. Housemade maple syrup is available to take home. Daniel's Restaurant and Pub, located right on the Contoocook River, offers a nice selection of entrees and an extensive cocktail menu. For a very casual meal, St. George's Cafe is a great sandwich stop.

Henniker is a great place to relax and get away from it all or enjoy an action filled vacation. Stroll the streets or trails along the river, enjoy a summer concert on the green or spend an afternoon playing golf, take a hike through the lush trails or ski one of the area mountains. There is a lot to see and do around Henniker. Its central location makes it a great place to use as your home base while you explore New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont or even Maine.
