The space

One of the oldest plots in Hollis on Silver lake, formerly known as long pond. This rustic apartment used to be the old hunting cabin from the early 1900's. Although it's attached to the house (separate entrance), 100% private. Entry way Deadbolt is motorized and keyless, we provide you with a custom entry code to use during your stay. A harman p43 pellet stove will help keep you warm while providing that perfect ambiance

It's unique location in the middle of the lake and extensive lake frontage makes this a unique waterfront getaway! The grounds are landscaped and there are a ton of nature opportunities locally including hiking, biking, fishing, apple and strawberry picking (in season) and fantastic bird watching.

This is a memorable place to stay. The lakeside setting is perfect for relaxing and is close to some wonderful woodland walks. Eric was welcoming and friendly, yet very respectful of our privacy. We would certainly return and highly recommend the cabin.

We had such a great stay at Eric's beautiful place on the lake. The apartment felt like you had your own space even though it was attached to the house. We ran into Eric only a few times and each time, he was so friendly and gave us tips on what hiking trails to see. We followed his advice and the trails were just beautiful and only a stones throw away from the apartment. We spent the afternoons relaxing by the lake and enjoying the birds and wildlife that were surrounding us. There were plenty of restauraunts nearby but we chose to bring our own food and cook in, the kitchen was fully stocked with everything you might need! We had a wonderful time and would love to make it back in the winter to try the cross-country skiing!

Eric is a great host. The cabin was lovely and it was a perfect retreat for the weekend. It's close to Nashua if you want to experience night life and great food.

Eric's place was the perfect home for a getaway with my girlfriend. Upon arrival, Eric greeted us and made us feel at home. We were thrilled with the amenities on the property. We had an amazing time on the raft, the canoe, and the dock. The home was well stocked with anything that we may have needed during our stay. The entire home was very clean from the kitichen to the bed linens we had no complaints! Eric was a very considerate and helpful host. This was the first time I had ever used airbnb and Eric has set the bar very high! We will for sure be back next summer!

Perfect place for a getaway-- easy access to highway and amenities, but beautifully peaceful and quiet at the same time. Everything you could possibly want in a small package. We absolutely loved staying here, enjoying the lake, the private deck, fire pit, and full kitchen. Eric was a perfect host-- super friendly and very easy to communicate with. I would highly, highly recommend this location!
