My daughter and I spent 4 days here in August. The setting is very special, nestled in the foothills of the White Mountains, with it's own private lake, forests and wildlife trails. The lake is very pure and clean, and historically was the source of bottled spring water sold from the site. If you're lucky, when you kayak, you can see loons and herons, and more commonly, ducks and turtles. There's something for everyone here: waterskiing, tennis, hiking, swimming, boating, arts and crafts, games, even an indoor pool and fitness facility, and an Audubon Sanctuary. I also treated myself to a sublime massage in the repurposed antique Spring House, bordering the brook.
The accomodations are simple, and somewhat old-fashioned, but I find that adds to the charm, especially as they are scrupulously cleaned and very comfortable.
Rebooked for next year!
