Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cabin in Errol - Akers Pond Get Away

3 bedroom, 1 bathroom with shower stall, sleeps 6, pet friendly

Located at the end of the road, it's very private & quiet. It overlooks Stump Cove, which is un-swimmable. Akers Pond, however, is easily accessed by kayak or small boat or a short walk to one of it's public beaches. Included for use are two kayaks, an aluminum row boat and a paddle boat. There are plenty of life preservers available for use while boating. Relax on the deck, by day, to enjoy fabulous mountain views, as well as wildlife. You'll be certain to hear the soothing call of the loons during the season. By night, sit by the cove's edge and enjoy a fire in the pit.

Winter season offers great activities, as well. One highlight is that you can hit the trail with your snowmobile directly from the cabin.

A sunroom, with a sliding door to the deck, faces the cove. There are two tvs with 'satellite', one in the living room and one in the first floor bedroom. The first floor bedroom has a queen sized bed. The second floor has two bedrooms, one has a full sized bed, the other has two twin sized beds. Both upstairs rooms have skylights & ceiling fans. The bathroom has a stall shower, no tub.

Please note that there is sketchy cell service at this location.

Heidi & Mike,



Thank you so much for sharing your cozy home with us. We had a great time snowmobiling. The direct access to the trails made it very convenient. The view of the cove is beautiful! We had a wonderful stay and hopefully we can come back soon!



Thank you so much!

An absolute gem if you want peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

This place is located in a very quiet spot of a very small and quiet town in a very remote part of Northern New Hampshire. The property is on the outskirts of Errol, NH, right on Akers Pond. It is very secluded, overlooking the lake, that you can see right in front while doing dishes or having coffee at the dining table or on the front porch.

The house is extremely well thought out and built, it has absolutely everything, and it's kept meticulously clean and tidy by the hosts. It is also very warm -- we were there around the New Year when it was 12° F outside during a snowfall with a wind blowing from the lake -- it felt cozy inside while watching the snow fall on a frozen lake; we could easily make the house much warmer if we needed to -- they have a forced air heating system that works very fast. The hosts call it a cabin, but it really does feel like a house. Heidi Palmer is very warm, personable, and accommodating. It may sound like a cliche, but this place does feel as if you were at home.

For somebody looking for a very comfortable peace and quiet with a great view, you don't need to go any further. If, on the other hand, you want to speckle your vacation with some activity, we traveled to the Sunday River Skiing resort (Newry, ME) near Bethel, ME ~40 miles. There is a XC skiing and snowshoeing center on the same mountain, but there is also another specialized place in Bethel -- Carter's Cross Country Ski Center. Between Errol and Bethel, there are two state parks (Umbagog and Grafton Notch), so there are plenty of hiking opportunities there. This is all we had a chance to explore in 4 days we were there, I am sure there are plenty of other things in other directions.

One thing I would recommend for a place like that is to plan the trip ahead. There is no internet in the house, but on top of that, we had no AT&T cellular or data service at all, and no roaming was available. So, looking for information while there was difficult -- we drove to the town center and used the Wi-Fi in the public library (the library does not need to be open, the network and password are written on the front door). On the other hand, may be other providers would be available there, I don't have the experience to comment.

In conclusion, we really loved the place and enjoyed our time there. I would gladly recommend the place to any of my friends.

Peaceful and sooooo cozy

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and dog and I stayed at this wonderful secluded cabin for 5 days and it was just wonderful. It was everything we hoped for and more! The cabin was very cozy and clean with beautiful views. I thought I brought everything we needed, but found I forgot a couple of things......no problem......Heidi (the owner) had us covered. She thought of everything! She provided all kinds of paper supplies, as well as ample linen supplies. There were even many spices, condiments, canned goods...even spaghetti! We had left behind our dog's blanket and she mailed it to us (after she washed it). She is a very kind and considerate host. It was a wonderful experience and we look forward to going back next year!

Amazing, relaxing setting

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this place just says peaceful. Amazing views, quiet surroundings and a cozy house. My boyfriend, my dog and I spent 5 days just relaxing and watching the winter melt away. Heidi was extremely friendly and welcoming and the house was exactly as described and clean and well kept. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking during our stay and then some! I don't recommend making a Winter or early Spring trip here without 4-wheel drive or at least some good snow tires as the road to the house was not recently plowed. While Errol is definitely in the middle of nowhere, if you take a ride an hour in any direction you won't be disappointed with the scenery and there are a ton of hiking and scenic views to explore on the main roads. We are already planning our next trip! Definitely dog friendly and great for a family with older kids (I would be wary with small children due to the open staircase leading upstairs and the large pond on the property) I would recommend this to anyone looking to just get away from it all.

NICE AND PEACEFUL

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 days in this lovely cottage. If you like solitude and wonderful views, we highly recommand this place. Heidi, the owner, was nice from the first contact my mail to the last one when we went away.

We had pleasure in snowshoing on the pond and all around, to take the road 3 until Canadian border, (following the Connecticut lakes), and so on...

The must : we met a lot of deers, very closed to us. No moose so we have to come back ...

Such A Beautiful Setting!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this cozy cabin! We treasured the quiet location and view across the cove. We enjoyed both the kayaks and paddleboat, and spent a couple peaceful evenings by the campfire. Heidi was a very attentive host, making sure that everything was in order and even sending a kind note with our security deposit. We certainly hope to return someday, and highly recommend this home to anyone seeking beautiful scenery and solitude.

The cabin is located at a dead end, on Stump Cove, around a corner from Akers Pond. It is very private for these reasons. There is no end to hiking, biking, 4 wheeling, swimming, boating, as well as skiing & snowmobiling in and around the area. You can park your trailer and snowmobile to the trail system directly from the cabin.
