About Dana Keegan

We fell in love with New Hampshire after buying the property and eventually moved here to raise our kids. As the kids have gotten older we don't have the opportunity to visit as often as we would like and want to share our experience with others who want to create lake memories with their loved ones.

Dana Keegan purchased this house in 2005

Why Dana Keegan chose Lakes Region

We fell in love with this property ten years ago when living in Washington, DC. We spent a number of years coming up during the summers and holidays with our young children. We have created so many wonderful memories at 'Moosehead Lodge'.

What makes this house unique

This is a great home because it is very easy for two families to rent it together and feel like you have your own space. Two master suites are located on the top floor and in the walkout basement. We get the most beautiful sunsets over the lake, and we have fantastic neighbors too!

Lovely house, quiet lake

  • 5 of 5

The house was located on a lovely, quiet lake with beautiful views of each night's sunset from the spacious porch. We enjoyed s'mores in the fire pit, canoeing on the lake, catching fish off the pier, listening to the loons, and observing sunfish "nests" at a nearby island. We also rented paddle boards from a store that delivered. The house was very nice with a large, well stocked kitchen and comfortable beds. The house was kid-friendly with a small kayak, blocks and other toys enjoyed by my 3 year old grandson. The house was easy to find off major roads. We enjoyed a nice seafood dinner in nearby Concord. Ice cream shops, grocery stores, liquor stores and farm stands were nearby. It was a little challenging getting all the linens washed and dried prior to our checkout time. The $60 trash removal fee seemed a little excessive. This was the nicest house we have ever rented. Dana Keegan answered my emails promptly.

Honeymoon Memories can be made here!

  • 5 of 5

My new bride and I selected this property for our honeymoon and we couldn't be more pleased with the results. The house itself is beautiful and the location on the lake with Fall evident everywhere around us made for a wonderful stay. The location is remote, yet you are less than 30 minutes from virtually anything you might need. Its proximity to the coast and Boston and Salem make for great day trips. In the area as well is a wonderful and quirky restaurant known as "The Crystal Quail" which we also high recommend. If you are staying in, we can attest that as amateur "chefs" the kitchen is a dream. So much space and high end appliances to boot. Certainly you can look at the pictures, but they honestly don't do justice to the lodge, either inside or out! If we every make our way back to the area, this will be the first place we look to for a great stay!

I've just completed my stay at Moosehead Lodge and I cannot say enough nice things about the whole experience:the house, the view, the lake and the owners. A++ on all of these. Very rarely is a place far better than you expected. Moosehead Lodge is gorgeous. It's beautifully decorated. The kitchen is huge. The beds are so comfortable. The lake view is exactly what you hope it'll be. And the owners went far and beyond to be helpful.

There's no doubt I'm returning as soon as I can!

Beautiful property - Gorgeous views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fabulous time at Moosehead Lodge. The house is lovely - clean, well-maintained and very comfortable. The kitchen was perfect with premium appliances, large island and beautiful views. The deck/dock are excellent spots for a morning coffee or glass of wine in the evening while watching the sunsets. We enjoyed jet skiing, kayaking, swimming, hiking Mt. Major, and picking blueberries. The fire pit area by the lake was great for evening campfires. The owner was very helpful and responded quickly to texts if we had any questions. Highly recommend this property and look forward to returning next season!

Amazing Property - More than Expected!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from a week at this lovely rental. It was an absolutely beautiful home with everything you could ask for in a rental. The property was so well maintained. The kitchen was spectacular; everything you could need and more. We had more than enough space for ourselves and two adult children. It was so relaxing enjoying the views from the deck, floating on the lake, sunning on the dock, fishing from the dock. playing board games in the evening overlooking the lake, canoeing on the lake at sunset, etc. The owner was helpful if we had questions and returned texts immediately. Overall I would not hesitate to recommend this property and I would go back again in a minute. It was a great, relaxing week away!
