About Janice Lashnits

Our family has owned the property for about 50 years. My father finished building the cottage in 1970, and we have enjoyed summer family vacations there ever since! Lake Winnipesaukee is a special place for our family with many wonderful memories, and we hope you can enjoy a memorable vacation as well!

Janice Lashnits purchased this house in 1970

Awesome location

  • 5 of 5

This was great! We had so much relaxing time, kayaking, walking, playing games. We never found ourselves with nothing to do. We were close to family so visiting them was never a problem. The place was clean. The beds were so comfortable. Really enjoyed our stay here. Thank you!

Can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second summer renting this fantastic cottage. The space is perfect for our family and we love bringing our boat and spending time on the lake. Family game nights, BBQ, swimming, and Fourth of July fireworks on the bay made for a perfect week. The cottage is clean and has everything we need. We'll be back!

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!
