Lake Winnipesaukee is a special place for our family with many wonderful memories, and we hope you can enjoy a memorable vacation as well!

The house was just what we needed. Private, cozy with all the amenities close at hand

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Alton Bay. The house was perfect. It was Wonderfully appointed and stocked with anything you could need for a quiet family getaway. Janice was more than receptive to my questions and needs. The cottage is located right on the water and affords you beautiful views morning, noon and night. The cottage is located on a quiet road that is located close to town and attractions but away enough for quiet. You have room and space to sit outside and enjoy the beauty of the Lake.

My family enjoyed reconnecting while enjoying a new tradition of listening to the stereo every night as we made dinner and then watching a movie after a fun filled day of activities.

We can't wait to come back next year.

Exactly as it is presented online! Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Cottage is very comfortable and convenient. Many cottages have numerous steep stairs to get to water. This one is perfect, some stairs but easy and gradual. Beds are clean and comfy. The kitchen is extremely well stocked with kitchen/cookware. The lake is beautiful and so clean. Only downfall is a week isn't enough!

Perfect Family Get-away.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! Our group included three generations, ages 6 to 70, and everyone had a delightful time in their own way. Beautiful water. Refreshing swimming right from the dock with gradual deepening for the little ones from the shore and good depth from end of dock. (Bring water shoes for the pebbly lake bottom.) We loved using the canoe to explore the lake and fish. Caught a bunch of (little) bass on black wooly buggers, but my friend said worms and bobbers work best. Bedrooms were comfortable, and the sound of lapping waves at night was so calming. The grill works very well, and there is an outside dining area, with lake-views of course, where we ate almost all our meals. That was a special highlight. A big common room has a huge window facing the lake, so even in bad weather you can still be part of nature. The house sits on a quieter street off the main drag; we barely noticed any traffic at all. We went walking along the road from the house with pretty birches and pines along the way. Easy drive to little shops in Alton Bay, and the trailhead for Mt Major is just a few minutes drive away. (Fantastic hike with rocky top and 360 views; the kids grooved on mountain blueberries.) And finally, Janice and John were friendly and helpful hosts. They texted or called back whenever we had questions and were lovely on the whole.

Relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property in the beginning of July, 2016. The house is relatively small but very cozy and was just enough for our family of 5. We managed sharing a single bathroom just fine. We enjoyed the dock area and access to water. The boys (7 and 9) were playing in the water every day and went fishing with their dad in the dingy or just from the dock. The "beach" access is convenient but it is rocky and you need to wear water shoes to really enjoy it. The house was well-equipped with all you might need. The kitchen had all gadgets and everything else you could use for cooking and serving. Janice was very kind providing recommendations to a great breakfast place (Kitchen Cravings) and asked if we needed anything else and was accessible for questions by phone.

I would bring your favorite card/board games with you if you like playing games as a family. There's a TV and DVD but we didn't bring our DVDs with us, so we couldn't watch it. My husband really liked that but I feel that it could be nice to watch a movie in the evening.

The area is very nice. We went hiking, fishing, jet-skiing, and took the kids to play mini-golf and have some ice cream. Hannaford supermarket or Walmart are 17 minutes away if you need to get something. We went to the movie theater a couple of times too. Overall, it was a great, relaxing vacation. I would stay there again.

it was a great home and worked out perfectly

  • 4 of 5

The stay was wonderful and we enjoyed it very much. It was perfect for what we were looking for! The owners were very nice and the house was exactly what we needed. My only suggestion would be to have a small firepit for outdoors. We would have loved to have made snores by the campfire. Loved it all. Would definitely rent again!

Clean, Cozy, Classic Lakeside Cabin

  • 5 of 5

5 of us enjoyed our stay at Lake Winnipesaukee a few weeks ago. The cabin is located right on the water. We were able to enjoy our morning coffee out on the dock and we were able to walk down a few steps - right into the lake.

The cabin was very clean and spacious - it easily fit myself, my husband, my mother and father, and baby very nicely. We would have been able to accommodate at least 2 more, given that we used one of the rooms for our crib. Bedrooms were clean, with fresh linens; 2 of the 3 bedrooms have views of the lake. The layout of the cabin is interesting, as it provides lake views from almost every room.

The downstairs has a cozy sitting area, we were able to thumb through a few books and play one of the board games provided in our room. A pellet stove provided just the right amount of heat during one of the nights when the temperature dropped below 60°. A large window provides uninterrupted views of the lake all day long.

The kitchen is on the floor above the sitting area with all of the essentials one would need to cook for themselves. We hosted a dinner for 6 guests and were able to use pots, pans, plates, utensils etc. There is also a drip coffee maker available for morning coffee. There is a big table in front of a lakeside window that sat 6 of us (+ a baby on the floor) comfortably. The kitchen opens out to a patio with additional dining table and seats - another nice place to take in the view!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be returning again next September!
