"Last September we spent 3 wonderful, relaxing days on this property. It was a surprise getaway my husband had planned for us. I couldn't believe the beauty of the place. We loved the quiet and tranquility.. It was a very memorable time. We hope to go again this year."
Apr 16, 2011 - Suzanne Cozzi "If you like privacy this is the place to stay. It is a vacation away from technology and a time to reconnect to your family. It is clean and well kept. The fire place is wonderful at night. We stayed there last year and just went again this year for a weekend away. Love it!"
Jun 13, 2011 - Catherine Casey "Beautiful seclusion. Tranquil, renewing and inspirational for anyone with a penchant for painting or writing. I actually wrote 8 poems while there and my husband made several sketches for his metal sculptures. We loved every minute of our week there. Thank you Max for "trusting" Audobon, and thank you Audobon for making it available to us.
Thanks also to Agent Raquel who was warm, welcoming and accommodating. Roberta MacDonald"
Jul 24, 2011 - Roberta MacDonald "Beautiful retreat. The sunsets on the lake were exquisite!
Nov 29, 2011 - Audubon Lakehouse Guestbook "8/24/11
Wonderful few days at the Carr Pond cottage - complete with grilled clams and corn on the cob. Kayaking on the pond, reading on the deck, glass of wine at sunset...the most relaxing few days I can remember in a long time. Thanks for renting a natural retreat in the woods to people who need time away from television and internet!"
Nov 29, 2011 - Audubon Lakehouse Guestbook "8/26/11
This has been a lovely 5 days on Carr Pond. We've enjoyed the lake and hiking the trails. On our last day we were rewarded by seeing a blue heron perched on a rock in the pond! This was a wonderful respite for our family."
Nov 29, 2011 - Audubon Lakehouse Guestbook "9/17/11
We enjoyed our stay here. Last night we heard an owl call directly behind the house and this morning, a blue heron flew across the pond."
Nov 29, 2011 - Audubon Lakehouse Guestbook "10/02/11
Just what we needed and were looking for! Quiet weekend away surrounded by nature! Perfect place for relaxing and getting away from the usual day-in, day-out crazies! Hiking, playing cribbage and doing crosswords in front of the fire; canoeing the pond...lots of fishing and lots of fish (the two don't always happen together!) All and all, a very pleasant weekend!...Oh well, back to the real world today!"
Nov 29, 2011 - Audubon Lakehouse Guestbook "10/13/11
Did not matter that it rained almost the whole weekend - Perfect spot. My book took a massive leap forward! Will be back!"
Nov 29, 2011 - Audubon Lakehouse Guestbook "Brothers fishing weekend, June 8-9 2012. The cottage is comfortable, well kept and includes the necessary "stuff". The fishing is spectacular and the quiet is overwhelming in the best way. Raquel is great to work with and we plan on a return visit. Tim Henry"
Jun 11, 2012 - Tim Henry "A wonderful place. Thank you."
Jun 25, 2012 - Jerry "We treated ourselves to three days and nights here at the end of June 2013 and it was perfect! Despite the weather being a bit rainy for a couple of those days, it was still wonderful...walking the trails, sitting on the dock, enjoying the screened in porch at all hours, accompanied by the incredible music of birds everywhere. When we saw our first fireflies of summer the magic was undeniable. For peace and quiet (but for the birds) you can't get any better than this. Many thanks!"
