Welcome to our little cottage about 200 steps away from our community beach where you can do nothing or if you are in a mood of being active you could go Kayaking, fishing and swimming and maybe enjoy a BBQ in the summer or ice skating in the winter. Enjoy our Adirondack chairs and firepit for relaxation. If you feel like being competitive we provide some outdoor games and board games.
We have WIFI and smart TV's so although you are tucked in by the pond you can still connect with the world.

Our space is big enough for 4 but not 5 or 6. It is a small cottage with a septic and well for up to 4 people. It is the perfect space for a small family or a couple. I will consider ONLY 1 dog per reservation up to 75 pounds with a non refundable $50 fee for the whole stay.

Our Living room is open with a dining table with a flat screen smart TV with Netflix account (no cable) game boards under the tv and an electric fireplace for ambiance or extra heat. We also have an air purifier for a better air quality  and AC window unit for the summer.

Our bathroom has a shower no tub and we provide body wash/shampoo/conditioner dispenser, hand soap and of course toilet paper. We provide bath towels, hand towels and wash clothes. If you are staying longer than just a weekend please feel free to use our washer/dryer if you need to freshen up any towels and linens as we do not provide this service.

We have a master bedroom with a queen size bed and a small desk if you need to work from home. All linens are provided but no extra linens so feel free to bring extras or use our washer/dryer if you have any accidents during your stay.

Our second bedroom has a bed with a twin and full size mattress. All linens are provided but no extra linens. We also have a pack n play you can use but please bring any covers/sheets for it. We have portable fans for summer months.

If bringing an infant, please keep in mind we do not have outlet covers or anything appropriate to make child proof so feel free to bring whatever you might need.

The kitchen is small but has almost everything to prepare a meal including an air fryer, microwave and different pot sizes. We have a regular coffee machine (we provide tea/coffee/cream/sugar) and we have a regular Keurig machine (we provide a few pods). We also provide dish soap, garbage bags and paper towel that will get you through a few days. Note: We do not have a dishwasher so feel free to bring some disposable cups/plates/ cutlery if you don't feel like hand washing.

Our backyard is not fenced in but backs to the woods where you can enjoy our firepit, play some games or seat by our picnic table and have a meal outside. We do have a grill in the warm months you are welcome to use it but please clean it. I HIGHLY recommend our guest to bring mosquito spray and if you are planning on using the firepit either bring some wood and you can also buy it down the street at the convenience store and bring lots of water as I do not recommend drinking water from the sink. I do have a water bottle in the fridge with a filter you can use.

 

CHECK IN: Contactless, keyless check in. Access code will be provided to our guests the morning of check in BY EMAIL, please check your email after 8am and you will get all the check in info.

PETS: Please do not bring a pet without my permission.

PARKING: Maximum 2 cars and you need to park in front of the cottage or next to the cottage but do not park on the street so you don't block the traffic.

SECURITY CAMERAS: We do have one security camera in the front of the cottage. We do not have cameras inside or in the backyard as we do respect our guests privacy.

IMPORTANT: This is not a party house, not a place to host a birthday party or baby shower… only registered guests are allowed in the cottage however I understand you might have family/friends that live close by and I will be happy to accommodate them if you let me know when you make the reservation.

GUESTS WITH NO REVIEWS ON A BOOKING PLATFORM: Must email me a picture ID directly to me and must be over 21 years old or older.

 

Windham is a small town about 3 miles north of Massachusetts that offers a variety of local attractions such as municipal parks, golf courses, tennis courts, bowling facilities, youth recreation programs, fishing, hunting, boating, snowmobile transits, bike trails, and waterfront access. The Windham Country Club golf course is an 18-hole premier course voted four stars by Golf Digest. Griffin Park, built in 2005, offers three baseball fields, a soccer field, tennis and basketball courts, and a playground. The Windham Rail Trail, which extends from Windham into Derry, is 4.1 miles of level, paved trail for walking/biking. Tons of trails around the area.

Historic landmarks in Windham include the Searles School and Chapel, Searles Castle, the town center, and the Armstrong Memorial Building. Searles Castle is one of Windham's most prominent landmarks. Edward Francis Searles, an interior decorator and antique collector, built the castle.

Castleton is our biggest venue for banquet and conference right off the highway and Canobie lake park is about a 10 min drive where you will have a lot of fun with the family/friends.

Cobbett's pond is where locals enjoy the summer boating, water sports, fireworks.. In winter months when the pond is frozen residents will be ice fishing, ice skating, playing hockey or any sort of snow toys.
Cobbetts Pond is primarily a spring-fed lake. Water from the pond flows via Golden Brook and Beaver Brook to the Merrimack River in Lowell, Massachusetts.

The cottage is tucked in by the pond in a pretty quiet community but still super close to anything you might need. Groceries, convenience store, restaurants, gas station, banks etc... not walking distance but about 5 min away. Easy to walk around or use a bike once you get there.

Our kayaks and beach chairs are only available in the warm months. Please read the house rules prior to booking to make sure our place fits your needs.

Fifty percent (50.00%) of the total booking charges will be refunded if the cancellation is made more than 30 days prior to the arrival date of the reservation.
