Beautiful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My family had the best week ever. This home had everything I could possible need for a relaxing vacation. Lakefront area was clean and had a quiet area to sit, read, and enjoy a cocktail while taking in the wonderful scenery. Outdoor living area is large deck with gas grill, lots of comfy seating, multiple umbrellas, and what a view of the lake! Spectacular! Inside the home was spacious. Kitchen is well equipped, bedrooms comfortable, downstairs living area great for watching movies. Thank you for a wonderful week.

Wonderful Lakefront Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Shelly the caretaker (very nice) met us at the house & went over all the instructions needed for T.V.’s washer/dryer, A/C, etc. She made us a welcome basket that was most appreciated. Very nice touch. Beautiful home with everything you would need. Well equipped kitchen & comfortable beds. We were 4 adults that spent half the time on the large deck relaxing & enjoying the lake view as well as grilling our meals on a huge gas grill. The rest of our time was spent at the lakefront beach swimming & kayaking. The sandy beach area was great and had plenty of chairs for taking a break or working on your tan. Water was very clean & clear. Sandy bottom under the water & no lake grass or lily pads to spoil our swimming. We would end our evenings in the downstairs family room to watch some T.V. to unwind from a very active day.

Thank you Paul for sharing your home. Highly recommend vacationing here!

Forest Lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. This house is amazing. Everything we needed and more.

The lake is beautiful. Very clean and peaceful. My three little granddaughters love the beach. They spent all day in the water jumping off the raft and dock.

We kayaked everyday. Everything was perfect

Perfect for family fun

  • 5 of 5

This rental was beautiful. The beach area is perfect for young families. I was amazed at everything the kitchen had, not the usual hodgepodge of rental utensils. The game room had plenty for rainy days that my son loved. Our only complaint was we found out upon arrival of a renter above the garage. We feel this should have been disclosed before hand. She was quiet and gone a lot, but it still felt awkward. Had it been a male renter I would have been furious. With paying that much, you don't want/expect strangers coming and going around your kids.

five stars absolutely

  • 5 of 5

clean, modern, amenities, responsive caretaker (even though we needed nothing). Great little private beach the grandkids loved. We have already booked next year (our fourth)

Very private location yet close to Keene and anything you might need.
