Ponderings at White Pond

1 site · Lodging1 acre · Concord Ma, MA
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.

Turtle Path Camping Site

1 site · RV3 acres · Hopkinton, MA
Our driveway is located about 3 miles from the start of the Boston Marathon, 8 minutes from 495, but, down a country road. We find our property to be quite peaceful. We do have crickets to lull you to sleep and early birds (and sometimes a neighborhood rooster) to greet you in the morning.  Keep an eye out for turtles! We are a few hundred yards from either Upton State Forest or Lake Whitehall. Lake Whitehall is popular with boaters (speed limit enforced) and is stocked with fish. No swimming. There is a public boat ramp on the other side of the lake. We often put in our kayaks at the entrance close to our house. We hike, mountain bike and picnic in these parks. It's really beautiful.  There is a 24-hour grocery store 2 miles down the road.  The gravel campsite is located at the barn end of our driveway in front of the red barn. There is a little privacy from the house, but, we may need to get into the barn from time to time. We have a 30amp and water hookup at the barn. If planning on using electric please add one "electric hookup" extra to each night of your stay BEFORE finishing the request to book, it's really difficult to add it after. Please plan to bring 50' of hose and/or 25ft of electrical cord if using hookups. There is wifi, BUT, it's pretty weak at the barn. Definitely not strong enough for streaming! Our Ibex camper may or may not be parked next to the barn depending on if we are out camping!  We do not accept car campers. Turtle Path also has a Guest Suite. Find us on that other website! Shortly after we moved in we discovered a large snapping turtle on his way from Lake Whitehall to the creek at the back of our property. Our neighbor told us that's the turtle's usual route. Turtle won our hearts that day.

The best camping near Adams National Historical Park guide

Overview

About

You'll feel yourself enveloped by history the second you set foot in this park, home to our second president. Definitely take the tour (the only way to get inside the homes), and don't miss the video (you'll recognize Paul Giamatti and Laura Linney, who starred in the award-winning miniseries—and Tom Hanks, too). You'll get a real understanding of what life was like at the turn of the 1800s, and if your kids are with you, they'll immediately be offered a chance to be a Junior Ranger.

The grounds at the park are stunningly maintained. Stroll through 13 acres of grounds—but take advantage of the trolley that carries you from the house John Adams was born in to the Peace Farm to the Stone Library on the 2.5 hour tour (well worth the time!). Those houses date to the 1600s—now that's old!— and the Stone Library is a true gift to any book lover. Don't miss looking at the entire wall of dictionaries that Adams used when he was writing letters in different languages. Yes, you can take photos, but no flash, no tripods, and no videos.

The tour guides and park rangers are amazing here. They really know their stuff, and they help bring all that history alive. You'll get a real sense of how hard life in the 18th and 19th century really was, and realize the uphill battle that our Founding Fathers faced.

There's no camping and no restaurants here—but there's plenty of inspiration to be found.
