Mended Oar Outpost offers peace and solitude in a beautiful and secluded setting, part of the 250-acre Lakefalls Lodge estate. The view from the enclosed wraparound porch of Chandler Meadow and the adjoining 10,000 acres of conserved land is truly breathtaking.

You can go swimming, hike for miles in the woods, or spend the day canoeing or kayaking from your private dock as you watch Chandler Meadow's otters, beavers and blue herons . You might even see a moose grazing at the water's edge.

The space
The cabin, built in the 1950's, has been totally modernized while keeping the 50's aesthetic.

With a wraparound deck, screened-in porch, beautiful lawns, wool blankets and fine linens, you'll feel like you're in a five-star resort rather than deep in the woods. The fully equipped kitchen will suit serious cooks, and the deck has a propane grill.

Radiant heat will keep you cozily warm year-round, but you can also enjoy the wood-burning stove inside the cabin and an outdoor fire pit overlooking Chandler Meadow.

Guest access
You're free to walk and hike around the 250 acres of the Lakefalls estate as well as trails through the adjoining 10,000 acres in conservation easement.

Other things to note
You'll find Mended Oar at the end of a well maintained dirt road, two miles into the woods from Granite Lake.

While Mended Oar is located deep in the woods, it's just a 25-minute drive to Keene, NH which offers lots of great shopping, as well as good restaurants and bars.

If you're a nature lover, the setting of Mended Oar Outpost is hard to beat. Overlooking a two-mile-long marsh and 10,000 acres of conserved land, you'll have the opportunity to see moose, beavers, otters, black bears, wild turkeys, hawks, blue heron, bald eagles and many other critters.

There are miles of hiking trails and you can enjoy a very private swim by the covered bridge at Chandler Meadow. A canoe and kayak are at your disposal to paddle the length of the marsh.

I am semi-retired from a large sign and display company based in New Jersey, which I founded 30 years ago. I love traveling and have been to many countries around the world. As I eased into retirement, I took up mountaineering with a passion and have now climbed the highest peaks on seven of the eight continents (7 + Oceana), including Mt. Everest. I hope to be climbing the eighth (Mt. Elbrus in Europe) in the near future. Other likes are biking, music of all sorts, great food and meeting new people.
