Once written about by Henry David Thoreau in Walden. He called it one of the "emerald eyes of the world" . A magical place yet so close to Boston. Learn more about this land: This winter we are offering up our cottage with an additional winterized tent for studio or additional guests.  You need to walk about 100 yards down a gravel path to get to our secluded home. It is heated with two pellet stoves. One in the bedroom wing, the other in the livingroom/kitchen.  Skating, ice fishing, and crosscountry skiing right outside your door when the weather is right. Peace and calm when the weather is harsh. The house is fully stocked with cooking. linens, and a bathroom.  During the summer, glamping in our greenhouse-tent for peace and tranquility.  It is under a canopy of trees with a cool pond breeze prevailing. The bed and linens are first rate for a very comfortable stay. There are shelves, potable water and a desk within. It is heated in the cool temps and fan cooled in the warmer days.  There is a canoe and paddleboard available to borrow. The main house is attached by decks, the bathroom is shared with the main house and there is a kitchen for you to use. The 40 acre pond is 65 feet deep. It is a kettle pond which is spring fed with no river inlets to pollute it.  Access is a little tricky with 100 yard hike from the parking area down a steep slope.  The pond is stocked with bass and trout for great fishing. The birds are amazing.  Henry David Thoreau wrote about White Pond in his book, Walden as the "emerald eyes of the world."  This is a place that magic happens.Please note: There are two sites. One is mostly for winter which is the cottage.  The second summertime offering is a tent/cabin with outdoor heated shower, private compost toilet, and outdoor kitchen.  You need to walk about 100 yards down a gravel path to get to these sites.  During the summer, glamping is offered in our greenhouse-tent for peace and tranquility.  It is under a canopy of trees with a cool pond breeze prevailing.

Hosts were nice and kind. Tent/cabin was cozy, pond is beautiful. For the price and to be considered “glamping”there should be a little more effort, place has a lot of potential and a little more tidying to outside would make a huge difference. Fire ants in the plants. Grills and fire place were dirty and used from past renters. (Not propane, coals that were supplied didn’t work.) Bought our own. Call me biased but preferred it to be more private. This is my opinion only, you very much share the communal space with owners. Freezer does not work. Toilet compostable which means you need to change toilet bag after every use is not what I was expecting. Again not a horrible time but unfortunately we will not be returning under these circumstances unfortunately.

Great escape for artists!
Beautiful, comfy, close to a farm that had all the food one could want (prepared and the best blueberries we’ve had in ages) Thank you Claudine for opening this magical place to us!

We loved staying on Claudine’s cabin, it was very nice, quiet and we enjoyed refreshing ourselves in the cool and very clean waters of the lake.

Lovely Honeymoon Spot
This was a perfectly tranquil stay. Claudine was very nice and helpful. We chatted for a while on our first morning and we could tell she holds a deep appreciation of this place. I recommend searching for 1 Tracy St in order to find the driveway, as we had some trouble getting in after dark. The walk down to the cabin is steep! The nearby town of Concord was adorable with friendly people, good coffee, food, and antiques. We wish we could stay longer! Looking forward to returning.
