Why Owner Joyce McKenney chose Alton Bay

Peg and I have owned and operated Winn-A-Bay Cabins since 1991. We take care of all the house keeping responsibility's to assure you have a nice clean cabin. We have guests that have been coming each year since we opened. We may not have all the perks of our competitors, but Winn-A-Bay Cabins has it's charm! Please give us an opportunity to show you getting back to the basics, and simple living can be awesome!

What makes this cottage unique

We advertise "Simple Living" but to be clear, we are not "rustic" our cabins are all recently remodeled, and we have attention to detail. A nice summer night sitting by the campfire with friends, you can't beat it!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

In the military and in town for the Ironman 70.3 Timberman as well as get together with my family from MA. I couldn't have picked a better place to reunite. It had everything we needed and more and super clean. The feel of relaxed camping. The lake just a skip away. The Community as friendly can be. Everything within walking distance. If I visit this lake again, I'm staying at Alton Bay and hope this cabin is open.

Great place, very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights with kids (9 and 12), and it was everything we wanted. Very clean, had what we needed in the kitchen, etc., and it was very quiet and peaceful. Restaurants, supplies, ice cream, and boat rentals were all within walking distance. The kids loved walking down to the dock and swimming in the lake too. Short drives to great hiking, Weir's beach, and just about anything else you need. Joyce and Peg were extremely helpful with absolutely anything we needed. We wanted to go on vacation to relax and spend time as a family, and this cabin provided for that. We spent most of the days out and about, but would come home after dinner and sit around the fire making s'mores.

Thanks Joyce and Peg for being great hosts. Our kids said it was the best vacation they ever had!

A nice place to stay for a family.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin, it was very clean and was perfect for our family and our dog. There was a nice fire pit and the property was very private and was great for our dog to be able to be outside in a safe area. It was also close to the public boat launch, which is free and you can park your truck and trailer at this area. The owners of this property were very nice.

Great Vacation Spot if visiting the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

Joyce and Peggy were a pleasure! I was coordinating multiple things at once and my arrival time was changing non-stop and they were very flexible with the check-in time the day of my arrival. They said "enjoy what you are doing, don't rush, we will be here whenever you arrive". The place was amazing! If you are looking for the most luxury place is the world- this is not the place-that being said, this is one of the reasons that it was such an awesome stay. The two bedrooms are furnished with comfortable beds, nice dressers and bi folding door closet space (all which looks to be new within the past year or two). I mentioned that this is NOT the most luxury place because it gives the warm feeling of being a lake house cabin. You really feel like the time that you are there, it is your place. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a family vacation or getaway with friends for this location. in addition to the front deck, there is a large clearing for a patio set and then a large fire pit.

We originally were not planning on spending much time in this place at all- but since it was so inviting and relaxing, we enjoyed a lot more of our vacation on the property than anticipated.

Thank you Joyce, Peggy, and "doorbell".
