My daughter was graduating from Franklin Pierce University and we were coming to her graduation. This cottage is only a few miles from the Rindge campus - and to top it off, its on the lake! Infact, you can see the campus from the deck of the cottage. There were 5 of us who stayed at the cottage. There is two bedrooms that are adequate size. Dbl bed in one and bunk beds in the other. The Dbl bed in the main BR was comfy. Nice closet and bureau for putting away your clothes. The other BR had bunk beds. The three 20+ year olds said they would recommend bringing a foam mattress as the beds were a bit hard. However,not terrible. Nice size kitchen. We cooked all of our meals there. The living area was an open concept and worked great. There was a card game going on at the DR table, someone playing a guitar in the LR, people on the deck.... perfect for entertaining. The weather was cool and although the cottage had electric heat, we never turned it on. The cottage stayed very warm. Loved the deck and watching the wildlife on the cottage. Now - remember, this is a cottage!!! Its not a luxery apartment. Hence, if you expect a New England Cottage, that is what you get - not alot of frills but it had all the necesseties. The only downfall was very small driveway and the neighbors are all very close to the cottage (camps on both sides and across the road). So - not alot of privacy. The stairs going from the driveway to the cottage were steep and the landing at the bottom of the stairs was pretty slippery after some rain - so just use caution. The homeowner was exceptionally nice!! I would absolutely rent this place again. You will want to bring your own toilet paper and towels. The kitchen has all the necessities you will need (just bring your food). They let us use their canoe which the kids loved. Grocery store is very close by along with a Walmart. Directions were easy to find the cottage. It was a wonderful weekend and staying at the cottage verses a hotel was fantastic!
