New England summer

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the greatest summer, we have had in a long time. We spent 4 weeks in Nirvana, our host Jane was the best. Jane gave us all the historical back ground on the pond. the best places to purchase groceries, fresh produce, and great seafood.

The house is comfortable, has plenty of room and has the best view of the pond. Fishing off the dock for catfish was a hit with the kids.

We had a great summer thanks to Jane and the pond!

Great vacation at a wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have rented this property. There are many updates and was very comfortable. We had a great time enjoying the beautiful clean lake, swimming & kayaking & visiting with family. It was a very quiet and peaceful vacation. Jane, the owner, was very friendly and accommodating and was a huge help when we needed assistance. I would give this property 5 stars and highly recommend it to others.

Property was very nice, with beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's first time renting a house on the lake. It was our best vacation yet. The house was very spacious and clean. Lake front could not have been better. Nice clean Sandy bottom lake. My family loved swimming, fishing and going out in the kayaks everyday. Jane is a very lovely woman who went out of her way to make sure our stay was fantastic. Would absolutely recommend and would love to get my family all together again to do next year.

Perfect vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in the beautiful "Nirvana" with our two daughters and in-laws. The house is equipped with all of the necessities to make anyone feel at home. We were able to easily prepare and enjoy several meals in. The view of Island Pond is beautiful and there are several kayaks, a paddleboat, and floats to enjoy the clean, clear water. While the spot is perfect, what really made our week was the kindness of our hostess, Jane. The years of love and attention that Jane and her late husband have put into Nirvana is what really makes the cottage special. If you are looking for a spot to simply relax or as a home base for seeing the local sites, Nirvava is a great choice.
