Beautiful and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was beautiful and there were many activities for the whole family. The beach was also a short drive away and there is a kayak and canoe available to explore the lake. The lake has a large variety of fish and a private dock to fish from. I would recommend renting this property to anyone visiting the area.

Tranquility on the lake

  • 5 of 5

I would rename the lakeside wooded retreat Tranquility! It was very peaceful, serene and beautiful! We had a wonderful welcome from Nancy & Dan complete with a bottle of wine to celebrate our 30th anniversary! We enjoyed a kayak trip across the lake and a great sunset tour courtesy of Nancy & Dan. Enjoyed meeting their great dog Beckett also! It was only a short ride over to Portsmouth. We would definately stay again and would plan our trip upon the availability of their cottage which was adorable with a wonderful porch overlooking the lake!

Exceeded my expectations!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I arrived, I felt relaxed and "at home". Nancy made sure I had everything I needed, and showed me the "lay of the land". The furnishings were comfortable, and there was plenty of room for 3 adults. We all enjoyed the patio area, as well as sitting by the lake (which I did EVERY morning and afternoon!) If I make it back to NH, I hope I have the opportunity to stay here again! OHHHH, one of the highlights was the evening boat ride. I think Dan and Nancy did a fabulous job of ordering one of the most beautiful sunsets I've ever seen. Simply stunning!

A Great Mini Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I feel so lucky that we found Dan and Nancy’s Lakeside Wooded Retreat. Their home is nestled in a wooden area not far from Rte 125 and Rte 111.

From the moment Nancy took us down to their apartment I was thrilled. Nancy and Dan utilized their space so well. Once we unpacked we settled in so quickly. There were plenty of drawers and closet space for our clothes. I always enjoy having a place for my personal items next to the bed and in the bathroom. We really appreciated their attention to detail. In the morning we couldn’t wait to make our coffee and have the pleasure of looking at the lake. It didn’t take us long to relax while we enjoyed the lake atmosphere sounds.

We had plans for most of our weekend but we decided to take the kayak out to explore the rest of the lake. The kayak was right by the water edge so it was so easy to put in the water. We are so happy we took the time to explore the lake.

Thank you Nancy for recommending the Kume Sushi Restaurant in Epping. It was so delicious we are still talking about it.

Owner's Response: Dear Karen and Frank: Thank you for your thoughtful and lovely review. What we hope is that people feel that this is their home away from home. You both made us feel delighted with your love of the space and the restaurant; we do enjoy seeing people be so happy. It was interesting to hear some of the history of the area from former Kingston folks too. Sincerely, Nancy and Dan
