About Tom Daniels

Shelly and Tom Daniels grew up in the Boston area. Tom from Medfield and Shelly from Newburyport. We lived in Newburyport before work took us to Minnesota and Maryland and then back to Newburyport. After vacationing with our 4 kids at multiple lakes around New Hampshire and Maine, we just fell in love with Pine River Pond, the crystal clear water, and the outstanding views of Mount Shaw (Castle in the Clouds) from our property.

In fact, we liked it so much, we bought the house next door and now live there year-round.

Tom Daniels purchased this house in 1998

Why Tom Daniels chose Pine River Pond

Great 4-season house. Whether you are looking for a weekend getaway, winter ice fishing, fall foliage, snowmobiling or looking to ski.

The water here is crystal clear. Not to scare you, but if you look off the docks and into the water, you'll see fish swimming around. Sandy beach, great views. Location, location, location.

What makes this house unique

This is a great 4-season house for that multi-generational vacation. Gentle sloping property makes it easy to get around. Adults can sit on the deck and keep an eye on the kids playing on the beach or in the water.

Amazing and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Our weekend away was perfect in Tom and Shelly’s home. It had everything we needed and more. The kitchen was fully stocked with all utensils and tools you could possibly need. The house was clean, warm and inviting. Tom came by to say hello, which was nice because we typically don’t get to meet the home owners when we rent a place. There was 10 of us and we fit perfectly in the space. Even though it is winter, the house has a beautiful view of the pond and it’s surroundings. Thanks again Tom and Shelly for a wonderful birthday weekend!

Owner's Response: We are so glad to hear that our home was a fit for your group. We absolutely love the view as well and find that when we use the house, it's hard to get away from sitting at the kitchen table and just taking it all in. We hope that your group comes back again soon!

Great place to decompress, relax and connect with family.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing visit at this well-stocked, roomy, peaceful lake house. The weather was chilly and rainy, but it didn’t matter because there was something for everyone. Our kids played in the water, fished, kayaked and canoed all day long. The closet full of board games and toys kept everyone entertained, in spite of a wide range of ages and interests. The bonfire at the edge of the lake created the perfect atmosphere for conversation and laughs that will be treasured memories for a lifetime. Tom and Shelly were excellent hosts. We hope to come back for a longer stay!

The definition of relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and nieces recently stayed in this home for a girls weekend and it did not disappoint! Everything about this house was amazing. The views, the amenities and the owners. They were very helpful with recommendations. We did venture out one day but would've been happy to never leave this home. We loved sitting on the deck taking in the views, napping in the hammock, sitting by the fire at night and using the kayaks. The only bad part was not staying longer. All we did all weekend was talk about when we were coming back! Thanks to the Daniel's family!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your weekend. We always think we are biased when we say how much we love Pine River Pond. It's always great to see families come away from there visit with the same feelings. We hope you come back again soon!

Thank you Tom and Shelly for opening your home to us to celebrate a 40th birthday with a girls weekend. The home was very clean and well stocked. We cooked meals and enjoyed the beautiful outdoor area. We couldn't of asked for a better location, thank you!

Perfect family get-a-way!

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic week at the Daniel's lake house. The weather was touch and go, but Tom helped direct us to some fun hikes and things to do about town, so we were never bored.

The house is lovely and set up perfectly for a large group or multiple families- as was the case with us.

The grocery store and amenities were only a short drive away and made it convenient to stock the house and enjoy big family dinners all week long.

The kids loved the beach, swings and hammock, and the adults loved racing in the kayaks and checking out the gorgeous lake. Overall a lovely spot and everyone agreed they had a blast!

Thanks again!!

Tremendous Vacation / Retreat Property

  • 5 of 5

What a great time we had this past year (2017) at the Daniels rental home. The property is fantastic for large groups of 12, including kids of all ages. Lots to do for everyone. Very accommodating.

Home: Classic lake front home/cottage, well maintained, clean, functional. Appliances and furniture are in updated. Kitchen is fully stocked. Large table for groups to sit down. Plenty of bedding to spread out. Deck is more than adequate for dining, lounging, with deck lighting and outdoor speakers to kick back and relax. Downstairs, is a bar with frig and counters. Leads to the deck and beach. The water is literally 10 yards from the deck. One of the few properties with a beach. Again, very nice.

Property: So much to review, but here's the deal. We planned on leaving the property to visit local attractions. We never left the vacation home. Plenty to do. Horse shoes, tether ball, rope swing, swimming, sandy beach, lounging, boat dock (bring your own if you wish). We were lucky enough to have the water trampoline, which was a huge hit for kids. They literally spent hours on that thing every day. The lake/pond is a private community, so boat traffic was minimal, water was extremely clean/clear. Again, second to none.

Landlord: Tom and Shelly are two of the nicest folks that you will ever meet. They are next door, but give you full privacy for are not intruding in the least bit. They were very responsive to any request, and quite honestly, not sure how they could improve as an owner.

Finally, to Tom and Shelly, thank you for you hospitality and generosity. You welcomed us into your home, and we left with a great experience, wonderful vacation, and memories that we will never forget. Heck, we even got to be part of a movie casting at the general store. You are very lucky to have a great piece of property.
