About Audrey Hickman

We fell in love with Tucker Pond when looking to find a vacation/retirement home. We wanted something directly on the water, within an hour and a half commute of our home in Lynnfield, MA for our three children to enjoy.

Audrey Hickman purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Audrey Hickman chose Salisbury

The home is spacious and open, letting family connect. It is directly on the water-with sandy beach and fireplace at water's edge.The pond is quiet, and has extremely clean, clear water.

What makes this cottage unique

The water view is so beautiful-especially with autumn's foliage surrounding the pond. The cottage has ample activities nearby, making it a wonderful retreat year round. Plenty of privacy, yet a short drive to Concord, NH.

Winter Escape

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin to escape to for the weekend! Although there is no WIFI or much of any cell service, Audrey has a wonderfully stocked closet full of board games and a wide variety of DVD's available to watch. Located about 30 mins from Pat's Peak, it was convenient to go skiing/snow boarding for the weekend. With all the snow, Audrey keeps the driveway well plowed to get in and out of! Thank you Audrey for sharing your Cabin with us!

Beautiful and convenient lakeside location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week of vacation with the kids, grandkids and poodle-mix. The cabin is on a large lakeside lot by beautiful and peaceful Tucker Pond. The location is very convenient for grocery shopping and sightseeing plus it is less than an hour from Manchester and Concord. The hike up nearby Mount Kearsarge was very nice and highly recommended. We enjoyed using the provided kayaks on the lake. The kids (and dog) really liked swimming in the warm and clean water. The floating platform just offshore was hugely popular. The cabin is showing its age and could stand some renovation but was fine for a vacation week. Note that there is no internet, tv, landline or cell phone reception at the cabin but ten minutes away in Warner there is a cell phone signal and free wi-fi. Audrey the owner was helpful and easy to work with. We recommend the property and hope to return!

Owner's Response: Thank you, I am so glad you enjoyed your time at the cottage. What a wonderful review. I agree, the cottage is showing it's age-but like a fine wine, it gets better, right? Seriously, tho, renovations have been done, and are planned as the rent schedule allows. I would love to have you again!! Again, many thanks for your input and staying at the pond. Audrey

Family vacation in July

  • 4 of 5

This place was perfect for my family of 5 plus a friend and our dog for a week. Kids loved catching frogs & salamanders, swimming and kayaking. Great location for hiking and not too far from Weirs Beach and the Polar Caves. It was nice to be "off the grid" for awhile with no wifi or phones ringing.

PS- Mom loved the convenience of having a washer and dryer on site!

Nice family time!

Peaceful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our weekend escape! So quiet and peaceful here! The woodstove was perfect to take off the morning chill & to curl up with a good book & play board games (so many provided!). Sunday was a beautiful 83 degrees and we enjoyed kayaking & gathering salamanders! Great country fun for the kids!

There is so much room in the house, it's perfect for a large crew or a couple families to enjoy. The new carpets, bedding & leather couch were very nice. Highly recommend staying here. Thank you so much!

Owner's Response: Thank you Carol! What a nice way to start my day. I am so glad that the weather cooperated, and you were able to enjoy some time on the water-the weather has gone back and forth between cool and hot. I am thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and would love to have you and your family again sometime. Audrey

Great Ski Location

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I plan a long ski weekend for New Years every year, This year we wanted to try some different slopes. So we found this place and are very happy we did. It easily slept 10 people, and the two bathrooms made it even more manageable.

The new carpets added a nice touch to the place. We had a great time playing cards and cooking dinner. We did venture out to the Flying Goose Brewery for dinner and it had great food.

As far as location it is about 20 min off the highway to the cabin. There is a Market Basket, Dunkin Donuts, and gas right off the highway. the Cabin is about 30-45 min to Pat's Peak and Sunapee. Very awesome location and I am sure it is as good in the Summer with the lake right in front!!

Would happily rent this place again!!
