“Pleasant stay”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

The good: a nice welcome from a very professional smart reception desk. Nice touch adding guest names to the tv PowerPoint display for the day. Really felt like a getaway. Well equipped cabins and cosy. Lovely location. Felt like a very safe place to be despite being out of the way. Nice bathroom. Electric digital clock in bedroom was helpful as could see it easily in the night. Quiet.
The bad: LCD tv would be nice but only a personal preference as the tv worked ok. Rustic. Again a personal preference for something a little more modern but the cabin was ok. Felt a bit dark in some rooms. No wi fi. No cell phone reception which is not their fault but to make people aware.
The ugly: weird smell throughout cabin. Very pungent. Believe it may have been a previously used paraffin lamp. Went to bed with a spray of perfume on the covers near my nose to smell something different!
Would I recommend? Yes.

Room Tip: Choose a lake view cabin.

Thank you for your recent stay with us. I am glad to hear that your overall experience with us was enjoyable. Several of our guests also enjoy seeing their names on the welcome screen, and compliment us on how much of a welcoming effect this adds to their stay. We aim to provide each guest with a well equipped and comfortable cabin so that they can feel completely at home, but at the same time like they are truly on vacation, during their entire stay. Thank you for your feedback on possible suggestions for improvement. We appreciate all suggestions, as these help provide a guideline for us to use when reviewing and improving on the services we offer. I hope that we will be able to host you again in the future.

This is the second year that we have spent a long weekend at the Cabins at Lopstick and both times it has been outstanding! The cabins are clean and equipped with everything needed to prepare meals if you choose to. The view is beautiful overlooking the 1st Connecticut Lake. The staff is always pleasant and helpful. We have already made a reservation for another long weekend next fall and are planning to cross the border into Canada (a short drive up the road). Because there is no cell phone service, they offer phone service at the office free of charge. If you want a relaxing weekend away from cell phones and internet, this is the place to go!

Thank you for your words of encouragement. I am glad to see that consistency in our services has been one of the primary reasons you return to us. Our staff takes great pride in hearing that the work they do is noticed and appreciated so much. You are correct in saying that the view is great, in fact I sometimes joke with guests about how I have the best office view of anyone. Choosing to venture into Canada is always a good idea while visiting the North Country, especially if you have never been. The culture available there is different than that experienced here, and that's what makes each visit unique. I look forward to seeing you again next year, and would like to thank you for your continued dedication to the Cabins at Lopstick.

Spent an extended weekend at the lopstick in the anglers roost cabin with my boyfriend and dog, we all loved it! The cabin kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed for our stay which was great. The cabin was clean, cozy, and just the right size for the two of us. The view of the lake from the front porch was great. The staff we spoke too were very friendly and helpful. We had a great time will defintely stay again. Nothing negative to say, I would recommend these cabins to anyone!

It is great to hear that you enjoyed Angler's Roost and your stay with us so much. Angler's is a cozy little cabin, I am also glad to hear that you felt at home during your stay. Just as you mentioned, the view from this cabin is spectacular, and has been complimented on many occasions. On behalf of the staff I would also like to thank you for your kind words of encouragement, it is our mission to ensure that our guests enjoy their stay in its entirety, and I am glad we were able to deliver. I look forward to seeing you again soon, and would like to thank you for your recent stay with The Cabins at Lopstick.

I looked for weeks for a place to stay near "Moose Alley" and I stumbled upon Powderhorn. The price was considerably lower than most cabins in the area, so I booked two nights. I'm so glad I did. The cabins are spotless and have EVERYTHING you need. Barbara was so incredibly friendly and helpful. We forgot our flashlight to go searching for moose, so she quickly got us one. She also made sure we had everything we needed for cooking at the cabin, and told us if we forgot something she probably has it in her own pantry. She was beyond helpful, sweet and very accommodating. Moose Alley is a short distance away and we were fortunate enough to see four moose. It was an amazing experience and we can't wait to return! I highly recommend staying at Powderhorn. Ya' won't regret it!

My husband and I have visited Pittsburg, NH many times and this was our first stay with Powderhorn. We came with a group and rented both Loon's Nest and Mallard's Retreat. Both homes were beautiful and both were spotless. Barbara and Tom our hosts were very attentive to our needs. Babara made sure we were able to get dinner the night we arrived and also had a roaring fire all ready for us when we got back from our meal. We will most definitely return!

I was looking for a quiet getaway that was scenic and completely away from noise & drama! The cabins at lopstick is the perfect vacation spot for any type of vacation (solo, couples, family, friends). The scenery is like out of a movie with a beautiful lake, mountains and plenty of nature to explore.
The MorningView cabin was extremely clean and had all the amenities I needed for cooking and grilling. The outdoor fire pit was an added bonus and a great place to sit and toast marshmallows!
I felt very safe and comfortable in the cabin! So very cozy!
The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Because there is zero cell phone service in the area, there is a phone available at the main office 24-7 and a computer in the office which is available during operating hours. I would recommend the cabins at lopstick for everyone considering visiting this area. Wonderful experience!! I hope to visit again very soon.

Dear Cathy,

It is great to hear that you completely enjoyed your experience here. We are also glad to hear that you can't wait to return. Morning View is a great cabin, probably my personal favorite here. The outdoor fire pits were added last year, and they have received great reviews. It is nice to know that you were able to enjoy yours as no cabin vacation is complete without a campfire and roasted marshmallows. I would also like to thank you for your compliments regarding our accommodations and staff, we all take great pride in our work and this establishment and appreciate it when a guest notices the time and attention we dedicate to making this all work to the level of quality our guests have come to expect. If there is any thing else we can help you with in the future, please do not hesitate to ask, we look forward to seeing you again soon!

We have loved coming back to Lopstick. Our 4 night stay in early August was great! Nice to get away from the traffic, crowds and polluted air! We relaxed on the porch while watching the
lake view and listening to the loons. We were in White Tale, lots of room, clean and comfy. The staff is great. Appreciated the wireless internet in the office as well as the courtesy telephone. Great place to relax and enjoy the beauty of Pittsburg. Thanks Lopstick!!

Room Tip: Ask the staff to suggest a cabin for you to fit your needs.

All of the things you said can not be truer. Each of the characteristics you listed make a stay in Pittsburg unique from anywhere else in the State and it is the primary reason most people get away and come to this area. While we are remotely located we still believe that it is important for our guests to communicate with their family and even work places, and so this is why telephone and internet access are so important. It is great to hear that your stay in Whitetail was also enjoyable and that you were able to relax on the porch and listen to the loons, this only adds to the experience. If there is any thing else we can help you with in regards to future stays, please do not hesitate to ask, we look forward to seeing you again soon.
