Announcing Our New Website: – The Rust Pond Retreat

After a recent post announcing upcoming lodge-based courses, a few of our readers contacted me wanting more information. Before I could provide it, I had to publish the new site about our camp for rent in New Hampshire where the courses will be based. I got it online today. More information on the lodge-based courses is coming in a few days. I’d have it up sooner, but will be spending the next few days scraping and braintanning deer hides. 

Announcing – The Rust Pond Retreat 

Four-Season Lakeside Lodging And Recreation On Rust Pond In Wolfeboro, NH

When you need to get away from it all, come to a quiet lake surrounded by woods and restore your balance.

Our three-story guest house is open and relaxing with a full kitchen, bathroom with shower (no tub), and a large sleeping area on the top floor with two twin beds and one queen bed. This is a perfect retreat for a couple or family with children. It’s designed for four people, but can accommodate up to five.  It also features a heated workshop and exercise room, large library, and wifi.

Have a look at the website and let me know what you think. Our goal is to share a comfortable, modern space with direct access to the natural world that’s ideal for families or small groups. We’ll be adding more photos and videos in the coming weeks.

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
