About the property

Sleeping loft (2 twin and l Queen bed), 1 bath Sleeps 4

If romance and privacy are what you desire, or a private place for you and your family to take a vacation, then look no more! We have a charming post and beam cabin with breathtaking views from every window and a wonderful screened porch to enjoy during the summer months. The cabin sits on almost 10 acres with an acre and a half, spring fed swimming pond which is 25 ft. deep. During the summer there is a pedal boat on the pond and swimming is magnificent!

We also have a mountain stream that flows the length of our property.

We can see our neighbors' homes from our cabin, but they are not close. You will have all of the privacy you desire!

The sunsets and sunrises are AMAZING!

Leaf peeping in late September, early October is breath taking! There are several places for the kids to enjoy . Close by is Santa's Village, Six Gun City, and about 45 min. away is Story Land and Clark's Trained Bears.

We are located in the Great North Woods surrounded by the White Mountains. There is a 4,000+ foot mountain practically in our back yard.

Logan Airport is approx 3 hours away. There are smaller airports close by (Burlington, Vt. Manchester, N.H)

We have snowshoes for use.

There is no tub, only a large shower in the bathroom. Leading to the loft is a library ladder where there are 2 twin beds and one queen bed. In the living room is a very comfortable double futon.

The main source of heat is a wood stove. There is a gas stove in the basement used to keep the cabin at 50 degrees when the cabin is not in use.

There is NO dishwasher. The kitchen is well equipped with spices, pots, pans, microwave, crock pot.

We have linens and anything else that you might need, along with a washer and dryer.

We are NOT connected to the internet and do NOT have cable TV. There is a library in town for internet. We have a TV and DVD's.

There is a patio with a barbecue grill and a short distance from the cabin is a fire pit for bon fires.

About Elaine Agnew

We are both retired school teachers who designed the cabin ourselves and had the cabin built in 2007.

Why Elaine Agnew chose Lancaster

The cabin is a romantic place no matter what season you visit! Bring a good book, relaxing clothes, kick back and enjoy the peace and tranquility that abounds. It is the perfect place for a couple, or for a small family.

If you are an early riser, the sunrises are beautiful! The evening sunsets can also be breathtaking!

What makes this cabin unique

One can not help but be relaxed at the cabin. It is the perfect place to enjoy beauty, solitude, nature and make wonderful memories.

Relaxing in one of several hammocks either star gazing or or reading a book while listening to the babbling brook is pure Nirvana. I must say, floating around in the spring fed pond, or swimming in it is an experience not to be missed, either.

Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fantastic Thanksgiving at Elaine's charming cabin. The cabin and property are gorgeous and Elaine went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable and well taken care of. We were able to venture out for some gorgeous late fall hikes but also enjoyed sitting around the fire and relaxing. Highly recommend this place!

Slice of heaven for sure!

  • 5 of 5

As you as we pulled up the driveway I was in love. From the welcoming from the cows and the horses to the beautiful flowers and pond. To the beautiful well appointed cabin. Cozy and comfortable with everything you need from pots, to silverware, to games, dvds and books. We had an incredible time. We are looking to book again soon and taking our five year old this time :). Thanks so much for sharing this amazing place with us!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying at our cabin. I am sure that the foliage was pretty awesome about the time of your stay. Your 5 year old will love it! Santa's Village is about 5 miles away and between that and catching frogs and playing in the brook, surely, great family memories will be made. We are so very happy you enjoyed your time at the cabin. Thank you.

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We only had two days at the property but our souls were fed by the tranquility and the beautiful vistas of God's creation. It rained one day but that didn't matter: we read and rested, watched DVDs and after the rain stopped we caught 5 brook trout in "our" pond. Loved walks along the pond paths and discovering the seating area in the cool of the woods at the stream.

We found Garland Mill, the home's builder, a mile down the road and enjoyed a tour by the owner.

The home was well outfitted with anything we would need and provided more than the typical rental property.

The property was great for us 50 somethings and would be a perfect place for kids to enjoy nature and explore.

Our only regret was that the resident moose did not visit us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at our cabin. In your 2 days' stay, you surely packed a lot in! So sorry that it didn't end in a moose siting for you, but at least you got to relax and enjoy the beauty of the cabin and its surroundings.

Our cabin is in northern N.H. approx. 50 miles from Canada. Montreal is 2 hours away. The road we live on is a well maintained dirt road with spectacular views! There is a hospital and grocery store in town as well as some restaurants and antique/specialty shops. There is cell service from the cabin!!!!

Mt. Washington is the highest peak east of the Rockies. It is over 6,200 ft. We have a 4,000+ ft mountain at the end of our road. There is a summer theater in the next town over that has several plays on going throughout the summer. Also, in the area are many places to hear chamber music, Celtic music, as well as participate in Scottish dancing and Contra dancing. The Colonial theater in Bethlehem is one of the oldest theaters in the country and plays independent and world cinema as well as live musical events. For children the theme parks of Santa's Village and Six Gun City are within 7 miles of the cabin.

We have several mountains for skiing, biking, hiking, as well as zip lining.

The air is clean and the skies are beautiful! In the summer we have long days.
