Bob Mohr purchased this house in 2007
This is the perfect home with a quick drive from many tourist areas, airports and major cities. less than 2 hour drive to Boston or 45 minutes to Manchester and in range of the mountains of NH
Northwood has a great lake, schools and our home is settled in a private setting with the beach at the beginning of the driveway. It is a year round home with the feel of the lake and the woods of NH
Owners were right when they said it was located close to the beach; it was just a short walk away.
Unfortunately the living quarters were not as expected. We were not expecting luxury but we were disappointed in how sparsely it was furnished. The top floor bedroom only had a bed, nightstand and a few hangers in the closet. The middle bedroom had a dresser but it was not usable due to linens in all the drawers. The TV did work, though. The first floor bedroom again had no dresser. The family sitting area only had seating for 5 with a sofa and love seat and a broken TV. It is advertised as sleeping eight but the only gathering place for that many people was the dining room table. On the deck was a small plastic table with 5 chairs and a small table between 2 loungers which were in dubious condition.
The house needed a good cleaning. The first thing you noticed on the first floor was the strong smell of mildew. There were Damprid containers but they were full of water and needed to be replaced. My daughter who stayed in that bedroom said the closet smelled like mold and did not use it. It had rained one day and you could see a sheen of water on the floor making it very slippery. My daughter said she woke up couple times during the night and felt very damp from the moisture. It was nice and cool but had a severe moisture problem.
On the main floor the floor did not look like it had even been swept before we arrived. The dishwasher was also broken and we could not increase the temperature of the stove above 350. The ceiling fan worked but had quite a layer of dust on it. The toilet had a 2" black ring around the top of the bowl. My daughter-in-law and myself made the mistake of looking at the actual pillows; definitely not a pretty sight! The airflow in the dining room was non-existent. It could have benefitted from a ceiling fan and/or fans in the windows.
Internet was slow but did work. There were kitchen supplies as promised and some personal items in case you forgot or didn't bring your own. The washer and dryer worked. Initially I didn't think there was an adequate supply of towels, but my daughter discovered that the majority of the towels had been left in the dryer.
Again we were pleased at the closeness of the beach and spent the majority of our time there. The house was a good size for us but we were disappointed in the cleanliness and furnishings.
Had a great few days with friends here. The deck is awesome for hanging out when not down at the beach which is about a two minute walk from the house. The kitchen and dining area are large and open which makes for easily socializing. One bedroom on each floor allows for a lot of privacy and personal space.
Only downside was that the dishwasher was broken. Owner is aware and may have even repaired it since we stayed during the last week of July.
My family ( 8 off us) enjoyed this spacious house, with plenty of sleeping space. the house had everything we needed including towels, sheets and kitchen ware. I just have a few suggestions. One thing that would make it more comfortable would to provide more fans since there is no air conditioning. There was only one small fan for the whole house. A larger grill would have been helpful. There was only a tiny charcoal grill there, which we did not use. It was inadequate for cooking for 8 people. The owner was very responsive during the booking process and answered any questions in a timely manner.
This was an amazing place to stay, the house was beautiful and well kept. Bob was very responsive and accommodating in every way. We had a wonderful time in the house and the short walk to the beach was a very nice feature. The people in the community around the house were very friendly and welcoming! We had a wonderful time and would rent this property again in the future! We would recommend the property to anyone looking for a peaceful and comfortable place to stay in Northwood. Thank you Bob for everything!!!
The house was terrific! Great yard for our tents, large kitchen for grill prepping. large bedrooms, deck and dining area. We all had such a great time. Lots of swimming, fishing, boating. Only lacking a mop to wash the floors. Can't wait to go back again! Thanks!
Home is close enough but far enough from daily activities, any essentials and great food not far from home
