Have stayed at Cabin #3 (Drake) for 9-10 days over Labor Day weekend for many years and love it. All four of our grown "kids" and a herd of grand-kids and great grand-kids come up over the weekend and we have a family reunion with up to 23 persons involved. The fact that we have all seven cabins reserved for... More

There are little side roads everywhere to explore and walk on trails. Moose Allley, Route 3, is right there for your moose watching and exploring!

I love living here. Right now the foliage is probably right at peak and it is breathtaking. With the sun shining, there's a splash of beautiful fall colors with Magalloway Mt. looming in the distance. You can now walk around some of the lakes since the water is being pulled for the winter melting. Ride the logging roads and see... More

The lake was much bigger than I imagined and it was so nice to see all the trees around the lake changing colors for the fall.

After over 50 yrs of vacationing here, I moved here! We wake up every morning with a smile. We travel the fire roads & ck out the remote ponds and wildlife. We love fishing the brooks and river (can easily walk from our home to the Connecticuit River) ! Our closest neighbor is 1/2 mile away although we are only... More

We hiked the trail to 4th Connecticut lake and it was beautiful. We didn't see any moose but walked along moose prints most of the trail. When you get to the lake it is pretty cool to see how the huge Connecticut river starts in this little pond. The trail is steep in some spots and could be challenging for... More

The views and just being out in the Northern woods is the best. Pittsburg is the nicest place to visit while! The people are the nicest you could ask for, real friendly and more then happy to help out with any question you may have about their great area.

Plan on at least a week to visit the First Connecticut area - and bring your fishing pole and your camera. Leave your phone at home (you won't have service anyway)! The lake water is clear and cold with plenty of lake access for those of you with boats/canoes/kayaks. This region is beautiful any time of day!
