What makes this house unique

Even though we are 'away from it all' we can take a short drive over to Lake Winnipesaukee and enjoy all the dining and shopping and hustle and bustle. The kids enjoy going to Funspot on rainy days. And after we have had enough of that, we can come back and enjoy our peaceful lake.

This place is a great place to stay. Loved the lake house. The lake was perfect for the kids. The water was sallow and it had plenty of sand area for them to play in. The yard was nice and big to play ball. The house was very spacious ,love all the rooms where they were and nice Kitchen with lots of cabinets and counter space.

This house was PERFECT for us, if you are considering booking, you don't have to have any doubts, it is all it is advertised to be. We were two families with a total of 4 young kids staying for 5 nights and had a wonderful time. The house is very well cared for and clean and met all our needs. All the bedrooms have air conditioners, the cabinets are stocked with games, and with everything there for the lake we only left the house for one outing, otherwise the kids were in the water. Great that there were kayaks, life jackets, fishing stuff, floating stuff, plenty of outdoor chairs and umbrellas, and firewood provided. The beach is nice and sandy for the kids to play, and the water is pretty shallow (only about waist deep at the end of the dock) which isn't great for adults running and jumping off the dock, but perfect for kids. We saw a mom and 2 baby loons several times, caught lots of fish right off the dock (the magic bait- sandwich bread), and the adults loved the hot tub once the kids were in bed (super clean).

The layout of the house was great for two families- the bigger of the queen bedrooms is actually on the other side of the house from the loft, upstairs bedroom and other queen bedroom, so when the baby of our group had to nap it was very easy to close off the doors to that side of the house so she had quiet and still be running around the kitchen, living room and other bedrooms with no disturbing her. The two living rooms provided lots of room for the 7 of us, and nice that the kitchen opens right up to the living room. The deck is huge - I can't say enough about how great it was.

The one surprise was that there is a plastic fence that is up all along the shore line that you have to put up any time you're not in the yard to keep the geese out. A SMALL price to pay for a goose-poop free lawn that we happily ran around in bare feet. The owner was super friendly and responsive to any questions, a delight to deal with. I hope we are able to return next summer.

Fall family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this house. We stayed 3 nights. We were two families, each with two kids under 5. There was plenty to do outside in the yard and pond. Beautiful views of the pond from almost every window. Indoor fireplace was delightful. The kids love the upstairs "kid" area. I only wish we didn't have to bring all our linens and covers. We also would have liked to bring extra pillows (if you like fluffy pillows). I hope to be back here someday.

The perfect family escape

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a lovely week at the lake house on Shellcamp Pond. It was exactly what all of us were looking for. My husband and I could unplug and enjoy the serenity of the pond (which was totally still and felt like it was all ours except on the weekend), as well as the hottub and kayaking. Our 5 year old son made fairy houses in the woods, played on the swings, and loved the little beach and swimming in the shallow, warm lake. In the mornings, mist covers the pond, and birds and fish thrive there. We shared the house with another family, with 4 and 7 year old girls, for the first half of our stay and we all fit very comfortably in the house. It was also well-located, near good ice cream, attractions, and restaurants. We hope to make a visit there an annual family tradition.

paradise on shellcamp pond

  • 5 of 5

As a family of five adults and two small children the house perfectly met our needs. Plenty of bedrooms, two living rooms, two bathrooms. A very amenable kitchen. The spacious yard and private beach worked out great for the kids. Fishing was great fun! We caught perch, blue gills, and (almost) a large mouth bass. The owners are a lovely family who couldn't have been nicer. Five stars and we'll be back!

Great Rental for the Whole Family

  • 5 of 5

The house is very spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. This is the perfect rental for a family with kids. The owners are extremely friendly and very accommodating. The lake is quiet, shallow and warm. Great fishing. OK for swimming. The location is perfect if you want a peaceful great away but close enough where you can get to Weirs Beach in under 30 mins. I would highly recommend this rental. It exceeded my expectations!
