House rules

This two story cottage with its historic shingled exterior and a large screened in porch and well-appointed interior is located on beautiful Sand Pond, one of the cleanest lakes in New Hampshire with very clear water, loons, good fishing, and beloved for kayaking and canoeing.

There is a full kitchen, dining room, living room, screened porch and bathroom on the first floor and a large bedroom, bathroom, and office area upstairs.

9% NH Rentals and Meals tax applies.

The space
The cottage has two stories, with living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom (with washer and dryer), and large screened porch on the first floor. Upstairs there is a master bedroom(queen bed) with adjacent bathroom. There's also additional space for a home office, with a twin bed. It's a quiet place to work and enjoy nature or restore your equilibrium. The sloping lawn goes down to the lake, with access to walk in to swim or launch your canoe or kayak. There is a gas grill outside. There is a TV (but no reception) with VHS player and a collection of old movies for a quiet, nostalgic evening. There is also cards, games, and books for entertainment.

While children are welcome, the house is not toddler-proof. Parents need to decide if the house, hillside, and proximity to the lake are appropriate for their child. Please let us know if you have a child in your group.

Pets are welcome. Owners are responsible for cleaning up after their pets, for any damage the pets create inside or outside the cottage. Please let us know if you are bringing a pet.

Guest access
There is an area to walk into the water. Canoes and kayaks can be put in here. This site is delightful for swimmers, boaters, and fishers and those who just want to sit and enjoy the scenery. It is not ideal for very young children or for those who have difficulty walking up and down hill or walking on uneven ground. The state boat landing is .3 miles away for launching a boat from a trailer.

Other things to note
Sand Pond is one of the cleanest lakes in New Hampshire. The residents and locals are partial to canoes and kayaks, though there are occasional motor boats. Loons have been returning to Sand Pond for years and grace the residents with their calls.

There is good cell service, but no WiFi. Free WiFi is available at the South Acworth Village Store, about 10 miles away. The Store serves a simple breakfast and lunch, has an ATM, good selection of beers and some wine, local crafts, and the basic necessities.

We have a notebook with information about the cottage and the area and provide suggestions and information for hiking, scenic rides, places to visit and to eat. There is also emergency information .
