Private Cottage with large beach and sun all day, gorgeous sunsets, very clean
About Craig Johnson
This gorgeous property is what I call home. Situated on two very private acres yet very close to all shopping and restaurants I could not have asked for a nicer spot to have grown up in and now raise my own family here. My Grandfather bought this property in 1901 and it has remained in my family ever since. Family means everything to me and my fondest memories are with my family right here and I know yours will be too.

Why Craig Johnson chose Laconia
Located right in,'the heart of the lakes region', water-sports and shopping are within a very short distance. Tanger outlet mall is only fifteen minutes away, Weirs Beach is one mile away. Christmas Island Steakhouse is walking distance. Great hiking, golf, restaurants, shopping and fishing all nearby. Boat, jet ski, sea plane rides and motorcycle rentals are available at extra cost nearby.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is like stepping back into quieter more peaceful time on the lake. Very rustic with knotty pine walls makes this the perfect vacation spot. Short walk down to the private beach to enjoy a swim or work on your tan. With its western views you will see the most gorgeous sunsets and area fireworks too.

FABULOUS place to stay!!
It was just the way the pictures showed it! Lovely and super clean! We will be visiting again, and want to stay at the other cottage that is on the water!! This time was just a brief stay and we felt so cozy and comfy.
A pleasant mid-week fall get-away
The cottage was as advertised, with everything needed for a very relaxing, no-stress stay. The only thing we had to supply was food. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was small, but certainly adequate. Location was quiet and secluded, but also convenient to stores and restaurants. Craig, the property owner, was friendly, helpful and solicitous of our needs and comfort - and we appreciated the two apples that awaited us on the kitchen counter at check-in. Unfortunately, we didn't get to spend time on the beach due to the chilly weather. Don't have a bad word to say about anything, and would recommend this property without hesitation.
VRBO listing failed to mention that “lakeside “ was many, many steps down a hill. Anyone with any mobility issues would not have been able to enjoy the lake’ s view. I had back surgery 3 months ago and had trouble traversing the landscape. No mention of this in the listing? Otherwise, lovely place.
I am very surprised by your review as I talked with you and your husband many times over your stay and you seemed very happy. The description of the cottage is this "Cottage sits on top of the hill on private property with a very short walk to our private sandy beach" There is also a road down to the beach? The cottage does have 180 degree views of the lake. I take these reviews to heart because I 100% care about you having a 5 star stay and certainly try my hardest to make this happen for all my guests. I am sorry that it didn't live up to your expectations.
Cozy & Quiet
My lady and I stayed in this cozy cabin and thoroughly enjoyed it! Craig and Maria were very nice and welcoming! I would highly recommend staying there and look forward to staying there again. It's close to Weir's Beach and a nice spot to wake up at.
Loved the beach
Great cottage and quiet neighbors and comfortable bed, all we needed was to buy food they had everything else. The owner was super nice, would go back again next year.
