Our cabin is rustic and wonderful and amazing! There is no running water or electricity. We have waterfront on Concord Pond which is especially perfect for children. We have loons and moose. A sleeping porch. A kayak and a canoe. An island to paddle to and a rock to jump from. Wild blueberries to pick. A propane fridge and stove. Solar lanterns. A composting toilet. There is a large loft upstairs with three double beds. Downstairs we have two bedrooms (one with a queen, the other a double bed) and a sleeping porch with a twin mattress. There is also a double futon in another screened porch. The pond is beautiful and relaxing. We spent entire summers here until our four children became young adults! We'd love to share our little piece of heaven with folks looking for simplicity, beauty and a place to gather with friends and family. We are thirty minutes from our hometown of Bethel, and it too is a wonderful destination!

The vibe at On Concord Pond
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
It was magical. The house was sweet and welcoming. The view of the lake from inside the house was breathtaking. Standing outside felt luxurious for me and my family. It was clean and the bed I slept in was very comfortable. The extra blankets provided were a huge help as it got cold at night.
It takes time to get used to working with propane, if you never had. I learned during my stay that propane has a not so great scent when using the stove. But it didn't change my experience at all. I was glad to learn it wasn’t my food gone bad. So don’t fret! It’s just the propane. Just be careful lighting the match to turn things on. It is a little startling. But you get used to it. The grill only worked for us twice which was a bummer. It might have needed more propane. I had to light it manually as the battery for the igniter was singed and not working.
I’ve lived off the grid so not having water and using a compost toilet was easy to adjust to. Come up with your own dish cleaning system and you’re good to go. It’s like camping but with beds and screened in porches. Having access to the canoes and kayak was AMAZING! We all really enjoyed outselves. We will be coming back. Take care, Nat from Western, Ma
