Dennis' home was exceptionally clean and comfortable and Dennis was extraordinarily welcoming to us. There was even a "welcome basket" waiting for for us when we arrived!
It is situated beautifully on Maranacook Lake so you can enjoy the evening sunsets from the house, the upper deck, the cabana or the dock. It is a nature lover's paradise. During the day, we saw a bald eagle flying overhead. We also saw numerous Great Blue Herons and many loons.
This lake truly has something for everyone. The lake is crystal clear and one of us enjoyed an 8am swim across the lake each morning. There is also a ladder into the lake with a sandy bottom. Our six-year old grandsons had a great time swimming and they told me that was their favorite part of our vacation! Water-skiing and tubing are excellent also. Kayaking and canoeing are truly enjoyable with so much to explore on Maranacook. Our family had great fishing here too. Bikers and walkers enjoyed the 14 mile loop around the lake.
Grocery store is only 10 minutes away. The Lighthouse in Manchester, also about 10 minutes away, cooks lobsters, steamers and mussels to take out. Their lobster roll and crab sandwich are excellent too.
We highly recommend this house for those seeking time away from it all but with all the amenities (and more!) of home! To top it off, there are even blueberry bushes on the property so you can enjoy fresh, organic blueberries for breakfast!
