About the property

lake views, but not on the lake

Adorable small cabins with two double beds and a kitchenette. The kitchen has a microwave and frig. It is stocked with dinnerware and utensils, coffee pot and toaster. They have a large screen porch. The cabins are simple, no TVs, heat or AC, but you get a clock radio and a big fan! Outside we have grills, fire pits, chairs and picnic tables. These cabins are excellent for an affordable family reunion for as little as $450 (before 9% tax) you can rent all three cabins for two nights! Think about the possibilities!! Birthdays, anniversaries, etc... spent with family and friends at the lake! MR# 034674

Good but,

  • 4 of 5

I have given a rating of four out of five because it was a nice cottage but…

We have the whole place to ourselves no other guests which made it nice. However I think if more people were there it would almost be crowded. Not a lot of privacy between cottages. Would be great for a family reunion where you rent the whole place out.

Also found the cooking facilities difficult. A toaster and coffee maker and that's it. Even the barbecue was not propane so to cook something on it you had to get charcoal heat it up, not very convenient.

I have stayed at a lot of places using this website and enjoy them all this one was just a little underwhelming.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you found our accommodations “underwhelming.” In fairness to us, you asked for privacy and I clearly told you the cabins are not far away from each other (15' +/-) You were clearly told there was no stove, only a microwave, toaster, coffee maker, dishes, utensils etc... that is also clearly listed in our ad. It is also clear in our ad there is no propane grills, only charcoal grills. During your stay, we had 6 of the 8 cabins rented, you were not the only guests there, I think that speaks to the privacy. This is our off season, during the summer all the cabins are rented each weekend, and I have never received a complaint of lack of privacy. I offered you a more private cabin with a full kitchen, you refused the offer. My cabins are $75 in the Bay, the only way to keep those rates low, is to Keep Life Simple, and all our loyal returning customers like it that way. In the future please read the correspondences and descriptions better, so you can enjoy your vacation. We are what we are, Clean, Simple, Cabins and we enjoyed catering to those folks who love to get back to the basics.

Cute and cozy

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean. The water pressure in the shower was amazing. Close to everything. It was nice to be unplugged for a few days. Family friendly. We would definitely stay there again!

A very lovely spot

  • 5 of 5

The cabins are simple but very well-organized and laid out - we brought a number of kitchen things that were actually already there. All the furnishings and utensils are thoughtfully chosen and in nice shape. The shower stalls were particularly impressive - cleaner and more nicely appointed than you might expect. Hosts are very friendly and responsive, not that we had to ask for much since things were so well set up to begin with. As is made clear in the description, there are no stoves, but we were looking forward to cooking everything we could think up on the charcoal grill outside and had a wonderful time doing just that.

Alton Bay is convenient to driving up and down the whole west side of the lake, the bay itself is lovely and one of the two town swimming areas and few convenient shops are in short walking distance and it's a short drive to a well-stocked supermarket.

We certainly hope to return!

Better than expected!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was very clean and bigger than I expected. Great screened in porch too! The picnic tables and fire pits were right outside which was great! Also right across from the lake and right down the street from restaurants, grocery stores, etc. will definitely be returning!

We are walking distance to many seafood restaurants, ice cream shops, Chinese food and bar. Nice quiet setting for everyone. The Mount Washington comes in for cruises, we have mini golf and kayak rentals also a walk away. We have a cute clean public beach area, swim hole and picnic area a short walk away. The tip of the bay has a nice country store with old town nostalgia.
