My wife, dog, another couple and I spent labor day weekend up in the great north. We spent 3 nights in the lakeview cabin, which turned out to be a good spot. It is about the hill from 1st CT lake, but this cuts down on the loons at night and road noise from rt 3. I've never heard loons before, and found them really amusing. I'd like to note that the proprietor's maintain a large lawn around these cabins, which is really nice touch.

I enjoyed having the comforts of home (reliable wifi, tv), but seldom used them because there are so many other great things to do. We did most sight-seeing excursions recommended by the desk. This included both falls (garfield and beaver brook), 2 of the covered bridges, 4th connecticut lake, stargazing (amazing!), and a failed attempt to find moose.

I had a great time and can't wait to go back. The wifi was reliable and fast, so working from the cabin could be considered.

Thank you for your recent stay in Lakeview. I am glad your Labor Day experience with us was all you expected it to be, and that you were able to experience the eerie call of the loons at night, and all the other natural beauty that makes Pittsburg such a special place. These are truly unique experiences, which should not be missed by any one. I am also glad you appreciated having Wi-Fi and the ability to connect with the outside world. This amenity was added this spring, and it has been greatly appreciated by all the guests who have stayed at Lakeview. Thank you again for choosing to stay with us. See you again soon.

We came across the listing for The Cabins at Lopstick on Trip Advisor and were impressed by how positive the feedback was. Now we can add to it. Although we only stayed for one night, we had an excellent experience. Our Magalloway cabin was large enough for 4 people, spacious, and very clean. Every aspect of the accommodation was pleasing. Staff was friendly and helpful. And the view of the Connecticut Lake simply cannot be beat. We recommend The Cabins at Lopstick without reservation!

We booked a last minute deal and stayed in the Hillside cabin. It was just up the hill from the office but felt like we were miles away. The cabin was very clean and well equipped.It was was cozy and decorated with a mountain lodge feeling. The upstairs master bedroom had a very comfortable queen size bed. The windows at the foot of the bed gave a view of the lake and mountain and we could hear a loon calling on the lake. The desk staff was very pleasant when we made the reservation and at check in. The website was very informative-giving accurate info about the various cabins and their locations. We would definitely come back to the Cabins at Lopstick on our next trip to Pittsburg,NH

It is nice to hear that your first experience with us met your expectations, and that you are planning a return trip at some point. I would like to thank you for giving us the opportunity to host you. I also thank you for your kind words and compliments, they are always appreciated. Hillside is a cozy cabin and does have that "disconnected" feeling. The fact that you were able to hear the loons calling at night must have made the experience all the better.

Thanks again! See you soon!

We stayed in the Serenity Cabin at Lopstick with our two grandsons. The waterfront log cabin was even more beautiful than the pictures posted on their site and the view as breathtaking, day and night. The kitchen had everything needed from appliances to utensils and cookware. We used the outside charcoal grill too. We were fortunate to have clear night skies...so many stars, it was hard to identify constellations. The lake itself was calm so boating with the boys was wonderful, even if we didn't catch any fish; cruised Moose Alley, saw a deer but no moose. We used the wood stove to warm the cabin at night instead of the gas heaters and loved it. One of the boys left a game cartridge case with Nintendo games in it and they are mailing them to us. We definitely enjoyed our weekend getaway and hope to return in the near future!

Room Tip: Serenity is away from the main cabins...offers privacy and a stunning waterfront view of First Connecticut Lake.

I hope you received your package safely. On behalf of all of us at Lopstick, thank you for staying with us in Serenity. As you mentioned, the scenery from the cabin during both, day and night, are breath taking. I am also glad to hear that the cabin had everything you needed making you like you were at home, this is very important to us. Perhaps on your next trip the wildlife will be more cooperative, but it is great to hear that you still enjoyed your experience with us.

We booked a rather last minute long weekend in PIttsburg, and chose the Cabins at Lopstick because they still had cabins available. We rented the cabin closest to the office, which is one of the older units. It isn't fancy but was clean and had a great kitchen which was newly done. The cabin was comfortable and convenient to everything. We rented kayaks and took them up to East Inlet after trying them out across the street. We had plenty of space, hot water, fresh towels; it was a great weekend and a reasonable price. The office staff was very helpful and even made dinner reservations for us.

It's great to hear that your last minute get away went so well for you. Angler's Roost is a unique cabin, and is enjoyed by many of our guests. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your kayaking adventure. Kayaking is a great way to get out and explore, and the places you chose are probably some of the best in the area. On behalf of the staff I would like to thank you for choosing us, and giving us the opportunity to make your experience all that you expected it would be.
