About Troy Brown

Blessed to be a resident of Pawtuckaway Lake, a slice of heaven. Purchased this home in 2017. Made improvements in 2018. Long-time resident of Nottingham, New Hampshire.

Troy Brown purchased this cottage in 2017

Why Troy Brown chose Nottingham

We love our home on Pawtuckaway Lake, and know others will enjoy staying here too. Being near the water is a kind of deep therapy that is hard to explain and must be experienced. And if you are looking for some additional day-trip adventures, their is much to see and do at the ocean, White Mountains, Kittery Outlet Shopping Malls, and more.

What makes this cottage unique

The views, especially at sunrise, can be breathtaking. I think we most enjoy the wail of the loons piercing the night air as we sit around a fire relaxing with friends and family. Or, watching the bald eagles glide across the lake to a perch atop a tall pine tree. Nature is full of life and amazing detail, and it is wonderful to slow down long-enough to notice the intricacies.

Loon Lake Cottage - Everything we hoped for and more.

  • 5 of 5

We are two retired couples that live local and that were looking for a nice, quiet place to rent for a week on a lake. Loon Lake Cottage looked to be exactly what we were envisioning. And as it turns out, that assessment couldn't have been more correct.

Although there are many things to do in the area, we spent our time at the cottage relaxing on the patio, down by the water or in the enclosed porch, playing cards, reading and building puzzles. Our grandchildren visited us for a day, and they had a great time playing in the water and on the playground at the Pawtuckaway State Park beach (a short drive from the cottage), and doing some fishing from the dock in front of the cottage. We took advantage of the canoe (included with the rental) to paddle around our area of the lake, and to pick blueberries from the many bushes that lined the islands and overhung the water. And we also did some hiking to the boulder field, located within the state park. Pretty amazing array of huge boulders dropped by the glaciers during the last ice age.

We saw great blue herons, a bald eagle, song sparrows and of course, loons, which were amazing to listen to in the evening and early morning.

The sunrises were varied each morning, from brilliant as the sun come up over the horizon, to quiet and subdued, with the lake as still as glass with mist rising up from the surface.

While this was perfect for us local folks, there is also much to do in the area for both kids and adults, with none of it more than maybe 45 minutes away.

Food shopping is maybe 10 - 15 minutes away, making it very convenient to stock up for the week.

The cottage itself is very clean, and includes all the expected linens, towels, kitchen items, games (played our first game of Monopoly in more years than I can remember), a gas grill, and a fire pit. The cottage also has a dedicated WiFi router with a strong, fast internet connection, and a TV. Cell phone service was also good (we have Verizon).

And finally, we cannot say enough about the owners, who are very friendly, local to the cottage, easily reachable, and very responsive to any requests that we had.

The cottage is perfect both for those just looking for a little peace and quiet as we were, or to use it as a focal point for all the many things to do in the seacoast area of New Hampshire and in southeast coastal Maine, including the best seafood you'll ever taste.

Definitely consider Loon Lake Cottage as a your next vacation spot.

Peaceful and Clean

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Loon Lake. The long dirt road in can be off putting at first, but once you arrive, you have found a hidden gem. The cottage is lovely. Updated and clean, with all the basics you need. When we weren't out on the lake taking in the beautiful sunrises and sunsets, we spent time in the screened porch or on the patio, both overlooking the lake. There are plenty of day trip destinations close by, like Concord, Portsmouth and Kittery. The Tuckaway Tavern is very close by and a must visit for delicious food and excellent service. Troy and Kris were gracious hosts and made us feel very welcome. We would highly recommend this property!!

Extraordinary Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We are sure going to miss the beautiful sunrises with coffee. The cottage was updated and comfortable stocked with everything we needed. The beach towels was a definite plus with littles. The area is quiet, and gorgeous. Our family had the best time! The kids loved the sounds of the loones especially in the morning.we are going to miss our breakfasts overlooking the lake. The location is prime to grocery stores, restaurants, shopping and beaches. The owners were friendly, and so very courteous. We can’t wait to book for next year!

A hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

My Mom and I experienced the relaxed vacation we had both been searching and hoping for at Loon Lake Cottage. The cottage was open and extremely clean. It was wonderful waking up at sunrise and going on a canoe ride or watching the sunset from the enclosed front porch that had two wonderful windows that opened to allow the lake breeze to flow through the cottage, as well as, allow you hear the loons on the lake. I enjoyed reading at the nook on the front porch and my Mom loved sitting outside at the picnic table getting some much needed fresh air. This was a great place to make some lasting memories with my Mom. Troy and Krista were very responsive and provide you with all the amenities you need have a comfortable and relaxing vacation. Thank you for providing this little gem of a cottage. My Mom is already asking if we are going back next year...:-)

Awesome vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was immaculate. It had been newly renovated and was bright and cheery. I was impressed by the use of space. The cottage had lots of storage space for food, etc. The upstairs is amazing. Lots of space for sleeping and a play space for children. The owners, Troy and Christa, live next door and are very accommodating and helpful. The outdoor space is great, between the patio and decks by the lake. We really enjoyed our vacation there!

A hidden gem of a vacation cabin.

  • 5 of 5

Best vacation ever. Excellent cabin and really nice family running it. The cabin fit our needs perfectly. It is right on the lake with a private dock and sitting patio on the water. It has an enclosed patio where we could watch the loons and many boats. My 7 year old grandson spent everyday fishing off the dock and caught 2 largemouth bass and numerous large hornpout. Every day we went swimming off the dock in clean warm water. The owners could not do enough for us and were really nice people. We made numerous day trips to the beach and water/amusement parks. This truly is a hidden gem and anyone would be happy to stay there. We loved it. Plan to return next year.
