I just read the posts. I remember the tree house, the glider. Does anyone remember the glider?? lol. And I was staying at the cabins when that forth of july when the live free or die float was in the parade.Sooo beautiful. The park across the street was alot of fun on the 4th.of July.And to this day,I still havent seen a fireworks display like that. The best.t Does anyone remember me.I met alot of good people there. Id love to revisit there. I probably wouldnt want to leave though. I wish the cabins were still there.

I was a hippie back in the day. Full on afro and leather moccasins! I was hitchhiking from Plymouth to Ashland and Mr Ober stopped and gave me a ride. I recognized him, we introduced each other and had an incredible conversation. Philosophically we were night and day, but by the end of the
ride we sort of respected each others position. I shook his hand as I left the car and to this day, I will always remember how two people so far apart could drop their preconceived notions for a few moments and discuss things as gentlemen.

George over and his wife used to create works of art to sell when they wintered in Florida. George and Ruth owned and operated Ober's Knotty Pine Cabins in Ashland NH and ran it throughout the summer and in later years Fall.

We'd look forward every summer (during the early and mid 1960's) to the couple of weeks that we could get away to Obie's. Dad used to load us up in the station wagon and drive the 330 miles from the Bronx to Ashland. Over the years we'd introduce extended family members to the cabins and they too had a ball. In addition to the Obers, we met many good people on those vacations.
Was your dad Sal?

After pondering childhood memories from going to Obie's for several years over the summer, I always wanted to revisit the sight once again. So I began to do my research only to find a video as well as this sight. It struck such an overwhelming emotional cord with me. Happiness to find others who also shared in these special memories , utter sadness I'll never be able to visit Ober's again. Oh how I cried. I shed tears as I write this now! Bruno may have purchased the cabins , but this will always be Obie 's cabins. My father took the family once after Bruno purchased it. It was not the same. We never went back although years later my parents had planned to revisit missing the cabins but my fathers untimely death at the age of 51 put a halt to this. I remember everything about this place. I loved the rec room and the treehouse, mini golf course, running around at night with the other kids. The bug zappers! Oh the sounds of the bug zappers hanging from the trees near the cabins! I'll never forget that sound as we sat outside on the metal lawn chairs that are now sold as vintage chairs. So peaceful! I loved everything about this place and I am grateful for the opportunity to relish in these special memories! And I thank those of you who have also shared yours! They were definitely the best of times and there will be no other like......" Ober's Knotty Pine Cabins! " Forever in my heart always !

I recently visited the area while bringing my youngest daughter to school at Plymouth State. My family vacationed there in the early 70s. I was hoping it was still there. Disappointed th at it was long gone. Great times from a simpler day. Fondest memory was a trip to the office to buy an ice cream sandwich. Also have memories of George's protest display on the front lawn for Eastern European countries trapped behind the iron curtain.

No . Actually if you google obers knotty Pine cabins a video shows up . Some guy went there in like 2006 to revisit the sight which remains an empty lot with remnants of only the crumbling pathways. But u can still envision everything about the place and I sobbed my eyes out when I watched it. It was such a special place to my family with the fondest of memories. I would so love to just go see the lot one more time. I know I'll cry once again tho. I just miss it so much. Maybe cause my father has passed on. I don't know. Just were some wonderful happy times.

Yes exactly! Simpler times! I couldn't of said that any better! We went in the 70's too! My father was a state trooper. Does that ring a bell with you or sound like someone you may have knew? Did u see the remnants of the sidewalks remaining? A man took a video and posted it on you tube in like 2006. U could see all the remnants of the walkways. It really broke my heart. I would love to just visit the sight once more.

Omg. That makes me so sad. I always just wanted to walk that property just ONCE more. Walk the remnants of the remaining pavement. Recently on Ebay I purchased an old postcard ariel view of Ober's. It was before the pool had been installed and before the pines grew in and filled the property. It means so much to me to have this old postcard. If there were more available of the property I wish I could find them. I'd buy them all up. We have some family photos inside the cabins with family visitors. They are precious to me.
