Lower Falls in NH


Maine is a great for all forms of recreation!  In the summer, Hancock Pond is the perfect size for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, fishing, and water skiing to complement land-based activities like hiking, mountain biking, or simply relaxing and enjoying the view.  Keep going through the winter with world class skiing nearby, ice fishing on the lake, snowshoeing or cross country skiing, and snowmobiling.  Stay warm after your winter adventure in front of one of the best fireplaces we've ever seen or used!  Look below for links to some of our favorites, then let us know which are your favorites after your visit!

Edgeset currently has a canoe, two kayaks and a rowboat (although, I admit, the rowboat leaves something to be desired!).  Guests are welcome to bring sailboats, motorboats or jet-ski personal watercraft.  A mooring is available to the south off of our pier and there is a boat launch where you turn on Wabunaki from Hancock Pond Road.  We ask our guests to be respectful of the people and wildlife while observing local regulations for operating watercraft.
Fishing on the lake is superb.  Cast your line for large mouth bass, pickerel, lake trout and perch.

Here are some great summer activities nearby:

Lower Falls on the Swift River along the Kancamagus Highway in NH.  Good swimming and fun sliding through smooth rock channels created naturally by the river.

Lots of local hiking:
        Holt Pond Preserve
        Bald Pate Mountain Trail  
        Pleasant Mountain Trails  

Watch the loons "dance" on the lake, dive for fish, and listen to their eerie calls !

Keep an eye out for Bald Eagles.  Fall 2016, we saw a pair in the trees right in front of the cabin!
