The SpaceSand Pond is one of the ten cleanest lakes in New Hampshire. Loons have been coming to the lake for decades. There is a state boat landing, with a lake host to monitor for invasive species, for easy access. While there are some motor boats, most lake residents and visitors prefer to kayak or canoe. Sailing is an option, but is often challenging.

The NeighborhoodThe lake is inhabited by year-round residents as well as seasonal residents. Family gatherings are frequent during the summer. A number of families have been coming for generations and relish their memories here. Getting AroundThis is a rural area and a car is necessary. General stores and gas are about 10 miles away. Breakfast and sandwiches are available at the South Acworth Village Store, as well as Saturday night pizza during the summer. We recommend guests get gas, groceries, and supplies before arriving to save driving a half-hour or more to get to a supermarket. Keene, Walpole, Newport, and Claremont all have supermarkets, pharmacies, gas, and restaurants.
