Cottage, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps
About Karen Hutchins-Keim
I am an archaeologist living in Philadelphia, PA with my husband (also an archaeologist) and our dog Genesis.
Karen Hutchins-Keim purchased this Cottage in 1940
Why Karen Hutchins-Keim chose Tuftonboro
My grandmother purchased the land where our rental property is now in 1940 from a neighbor. There she built, often with her own two hands, one of the houses on the property with wood from trees felled during the 1938 hurricane that hit New England. She passed away in 2008, but the home remains a central feature of our family. I, my sister, and four cousins have been coming to 'the lake' for our entire lives and my aunt even lives down the road.

Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property that is caused by you or your party during your stay.
You don't give enough space to lsit the prolems.
Negative. The owner needs to do some updating. and make access to the home and water SAFER. Beds are comfortable, that's the only positive. The DVD paler died 2 days into our stay. simple fix, the coffee make requires filters you can't find anywhere, simple fix. Its a nice cabin, make access safer, Personally I have a walking problem, Bad knees, had trouble getting to the house and getting to the water is almost o.k. but there should be some guards or posts for people to help them get down the path. The owner is very nice and seems to care about this place, hopefully she will update a few things wrong. It is a perfect "ice fishing" cabin. The cabin is small, but that's was not a problem for us. The access to the house and the water needs to be fixed. The kitchen needs a little more space. Like the wall between the living room and the kitchen needs to go. another easy fix. I won't be back, not because the dvd player broke and the coffee maker was difficult, but because access is difficult. The view was beautiful, like I said this is a hunters or ice fishing persons cabin.
Thank you for your comments and I am sorry you and your family did not enjoy your stay. We encourage guests to contact us if any appliances break during their stay so that we can fix them or if any basic amenities like coffee filters are not at the house when you arrive so we can deliver them within 24 hours. As for the paths to the house and the water access I am sorry you had difficultly. Our house is in the woods and the deck is accessed by dirt paths. The stairs that lead directly to the waterline do have a railing. I try to be transparent in the advertisement and additional information I send out as an attachment that there are dirt paths to the cabin and to the water and that the water entry is rocky and that individuals who may have difficulty in such conditions may not want to stay at the house. The cabin is certainly as you rightly observe is rustic and minimalist. Over half of our guests each year are return guests who rent for that very reason: simplicity, excellent location with scenic views, and quiet seclusion in the woods. I will work to make it clearer in my advertisement the conditions of the access so that future guests are disappointed or feel misled. We strive to have happy, return guests.

We really enjoyed this lake front cottage. We have stayed there before and would not hesitate to stay there again!
Perfect location for swimming, canoeing/kayaking, and relaxing. Bring your kayaks or use our canoe and tour the lake shoreline and countless bays and coves.
