About Debbie Bartlett

Betty & Richard Bartlett created this magical place 25 years ago when they retired. They put together 550 acres of unspoiled woods with a family home and 2 comfortable cabins. Exeter has always been a family gathering place and we have had numerous family holidays, get-to-gethers and two weddings here. The younger generation of our family spent their childhood exploring the woods and streams, watching wildlife, eating apples and blueberries from the trees, sledding, etc. Stewardship of this property has passed to the adult children and we feel a sincere desire to share this beautiful, 'good for the soul' place with others who will enjoy it. Debbie Bartlett is the current resident and manager of Exeter Nature Cabins and environs. She is shown in the picture with her brother, Chris.

Debbie Bartlett purchased this cabin in 1995

Why Debbie Bartlett chose Exeter

Our family has enjoyed this property for years, we are now opening it up to the public to enjoy.

Picturesque, Peaceful, Relaxing Space!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home after spending 4 nights in the Main Cabin with our 2 dogs and 6 1/2 year old son (when not at his grandparents). Debbie is a super sweet host. The cabin was very spacious, more space then we needed probably but it didn't matter. It would definitely be a great space for family/friend gatherings. We were able to entertain our parents each night with cookout, badminton and fun! The view from the deck was just so breathtaking. Enjoyed sitting out with coffee every morning while the dogs played in the spacious yard. Enjoyed daily walks on the trails. Visited the many lakes near by and enjoyed swimming and even fit in some horseback riding at nearby stables. Everyone we came in contact with, was so friendly. If you are looking for a place to just get away from it all and unplug and rejuvenate, I highly recommend Exeter Nature Cabins. You won't be disappointed. Thank you Debbie for being an amazing Host!! Looking forward to coming back next year. May bring more folks with us next time... The Walkers..

Beutiful October week at the cabin 2017

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week at the cabin Oct 16 thru 20th with family and friends. The weather was absolutely beautiful. We loved drinking our coffee viewing the wildlife in front of the cabins in the morning. We also loved lounging around on the sunny front deck every afternoon. We logged a few miles on the hiking trails and saw some deer and turkeys. We heard owls, hawks, and coyotes in the evening. It's a great place to unwind relax. This is our fourth stay at the cabin and plan to return as long as Debbie will have us.

Quiet Cabin in the woods.

Beautiful, quiet cabin in the woods but still close enough to town. Debbie is very hospitable. This is our second time staying at her cabin. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
