Location Details

Set on Bear Pond, this cottage offers unforgettable times for everyone in your group! Head over to DEW Haven Zoo to see - and even feed - the wide variety of animals who live there. Wallingford's Fruit House has apple orchards and local produce for the perfect snack afterward.

Hit the links at Turner Highlands Golf Course, set only 6 miles away. If golf's not your game, visit Cranberry Valley Disc Golf to play a round or two on the scenic course. Relaxing days await on Bear Pond with a peaceful ride in the paddleboat or in your own small boat launched from the ramp just across the lake.

Travel back in time with a ride on the Conway Scenic Railroad, which has dinner rides and in the fall, showcases the vibrant autumn leaves. Androscoggin Riverlands State Park boasts 22 miles of trails and 12 miles of river frontage with peaceful forests, colorful blooms and historic building foundations.

  • Beware…


    No heat source, no drinkable water, cracked toilet, dangerous access to the water, poorly stocked kitchen, no place unpack clothes, no tv service, could not access the dock. The cottage needs lots of work be rentable. We left two days early.

  • Not rustic - broken


    The beach and lake were beautiful. The cabin was a mess. Many things broken, lots of dry rot around sliding glass door, holes in towels, etc. The list goes on. I would not have continued to stay here if it wasn't for the lake where I spent most of my time when I was there.

  • Beautiful Spot


    My family stayed here over labor day weekend. Very cute cabin with all the amenities of being at home. This was perfect as minimal packing is great with a 2 year old 10 year old. The kids loved the little beach and the views from the cabin were amazing. We enjoyed our stay and will likely go back again.

  • Nice Lake and Beach Cottage Needs Work


    The beach is very nice and there are a lot of toys for the kids to play with. The lake is really beautiful. The cottage is not in great condition. The old, stained carpets are unsightly and there were many cobwebs and insects in the corners where the ceiling meets the wall. The house has lots of potential but definitely needs work. It does have a good air conditioner.
