Since we came from a distance by air, we had to travel light. So I sent an email to MLC in advance to make sure the cabin was equipped with essentials like towels, cutlery, dishes, etc. I received a prompt answer that all those items were provided; what a shock it was upon arrival that this was not the case. Towels and washcloths were there but nothing for drink or food preparation and consumption. Without any cups or bowls we could not even use the microwave upon arrival.
One window could not be closed completely until we reported that fact. The caretaker found a metal piece on the ledge, removed it and voilá - the window could be closed.
The shower at first was only inter-mittently producing warm water and eventually only cold water. Brrrr! This flaw was taken care of upon our request. When we got back to the cabin in the evening, we were shocked to find the cabin door had been left open and even unlocked by whoever had done the shower repair. Not good!
Although we didn't intend to use the pool, every day there were children in the pool and we noticed that the access door to it was frequently wide open in spite of the sign asking users to close it. That is a dangerous situation which could easily be taken care of by installing a secure, self-closing attachment to the door.
Regular checks, maintenance, and necessary repairs as well as the above mentioned security installation at the pool would make a big difference. Until that happens, we would definitely not recommend MLC to other travelers.
The location is super: close to shops (not your fault that the supermarket in Lincoln needs some competition; it's expensive and not short-time visitor friendly), restaurants, and points of interest, be they hiking trails, natural or man-made attractions.
We came to NH to do some hiking. All trail heads were easy to reach from N Woodstock. The only long drives we had were from and to Boston Logan Airport and even that wasn't bad.
The coffee that was made available in the mornings in the office was much appreciated; a nice touch.
