Three of us spent 5 days in Cabin 5 right on the shore of First Connecticut Lake. The cabin has a very comfortable queen bed downstairs, a full bed, and 4 twin beds upstairs, a large living room with 2 sofas, 4 chairs, a desk, chair, and a table with 2 chairs. The kitchen has a full size gas stove, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, dishes, silverware, pots and pans, coffee maker, picnic table in the kitchen along with 2 more chairs, and more.....linens, towels, etc. All you have to bring is your food!
Rustic, clean and comfortable.....my idea of "roughing it" and a nice change from the Ritz, Hiltons, Marriotts, etc.
The use of the paddle boats is free and life jackets are required. For a reasonable fee, you can rent small power boats and kayaks.
The view around and across the lake is so peaceful and relaxing. You can see and hear loons, ducks, and more. If staying at the campground, you might even see a bear.
If you like the outdoors, fishing, hunting, snowmobiling and more, Pittsburg is the place to be!
There are surprisingly good restaurants in the area. Just a short drive down the road there is Young's Market that has a deli and almost anything that you might need or have forgotten to bring.
Daisy Dog will greet you.
Many thanks to everyone at Ramblewood for making our stay memorable!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestled in 170,000 acres of protected forest, Ramblewood Cabins and Campground offers a scenic and relaxed destination for all four seasons. During the winter, snowmobile enthusiasts value 200 miles of groomed mountain trails accessible from their doorstep. In the summer, our guests appreciate the stunning views of Mt. Magalloway and First Connecticut Lake as much as the hot showers after a day of hiking, hunting, fishing, or kayaking in one of our rental boats. After they've played a game of pool in the game room and bought a treat from our office store, kids especially enjoy our high speed wifi and cell service with most providers. If you're looking for something with the comforts of home, our cabins boast queen sized beds, kitchens equipped with cookware and appliances, as well as satellite television. ... more less
