RDC is hard to explain, because it's something a little different to everyone who goes there. A rustic place on one of the most beautiful lakes in New Hampshire, it is host to many families who return year after year after year, including my own. It's a place with wonderful old traditions, but which does a good job keeping up with the times just enough without losing its beauty and charm. Most of all, it's a relaxing and wonderful place to shed the bustle of everyday life. Each cottage is close to the lake and each has its own dock. Whether you want to hike a local mountain, play tennis, swim, sail, fish, or just sit on the dock and read a book, it's a welcoming place that inspires a great sense of relaxation. Each family has an assigned table in the dining room and there is an abundance of well-prepared food, with choices for every taste. It's normal to see 3 or 4 generations of a family enjoying each others company. It's a unique and wonderful way for families to connect. It definitely harkens back to a simpler time - between the antique ice boxes in the cabins, with daily ice delivery to the Friday night square dance to the talent show - it helps you remember that there is more to life than the internet and smart phones. (Although there is wifi in the cabins now for those of us who must.) The management and staff are very accommodating and will do their best to make your stay enjoyable. Although small motorboats are in evidence, the ethos is one of kayaks, canoes, and sunfish, sunning on a float, rainy-day jigsaw puzzles, and so on.
