The Surrounding Area

Phoebe’s Patience is located in a setting ideally situated for quick access to many wonderful attractions. The possibilities for fun and adventure are endless. Rafting, canoeing, swimming, skiing, ice climbing, bicycling, horeseback riding, and snowshoeing are some of the sports you can enjoy. On our own property, you may hike, snowshoe, sled, and crosscountry ski. Our three sledding hills are fabulous, with one of the runs being 200 feet long! We have snowshoes and sleds for your use. Several outfitters located in Plymouth rent every possible type of sporting equipment you might need. In addition, the nearby area hosts artist galleries and collectives, museums, nature preserves, and many other opportunities for your enjoyment. We have put together binders chock full of activities, maps, and phone numbers that may be useful during your stay. Some of the attractions you might visit include the following:
  • Magnificent Lake Winnipesaukee is a short 20-25 minute drive from the house. On the opposite end of the spectrum in size, lovely Bog Pond (shown at right) is only 1.4 miles from the house and is the perfect place to spend a lazy day canoeing. Squam Lakes (the movie “On Golden Pond” was filmed there) and Newfound Lake are about 15 minutes away. View of Bog Pond
  • There are public beaches at Newfound Lake (Wellington State Park) and Lake Winnipesaukee (at the Weirs).
  • The Baker River is only 5 minutes from the house and is a locally popular rafting river.
  • There are a number of science and nature centers nearby including Squam Lakes Natural Science Center in Holderness, Quincy Bog in Rumney, and Paradise Point Wildlife Sanctuary in Hebron (on the north shore of Newfound Lake)
  • Skiing is available at several nearby resorts: Tenney Mountain is within 10 minutes of the house and is the mountain seen from the house. Waterville Valley and Loon Mountain are within 20 minutes' drive, and Canaan Mountain is 25-30 minutes away.
View of Blair Bridge Do you crave “scenic” adventures? There are four historic covered bridges within 15 minutes of our house. The Smith River Covered Bridge (rebuilt in 2000 following the arson of the original) is less than 10 minutes from our cottage. The photo at left shows Blair Bridge crossing the Pemigewasset River. Lake Winnipesaukee has the grand tour boat, the Mount Washington – take a ride and see up close one of the loveliest lakes imaginable. The famous Kancamangus Highway is within an easy drive as well as Mount Washington (with its famous auto road and Cog Railway), Lost River Gorge, and all the other White Mountain attractions. Close to home, a drive up over Stinson Lake Road is going to cause you to stop the car and stare at the incredibly beautiful vista of the Presidential Range in the distance. It is truly awesome. Any drive you take in the area is sure to take your breath away!
