Perfect vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here last summer and it was the perfect vacation getaway. As soon as we walked in, were were blown away by how spacious the home is. Three floors of living space, plus incredible wrap around decks. Everything was very clean, and decor is warm and welcoming.

The sandy beach is ideal. No need to pack up the car to head to the lake - just walk out the back steps! We relaxed on the dock and kayaked around the lake using the owners' boats. Our toddler loved running in and out of the water - very family friendly house.

We also appreciated the tvs and wifi but spent most of our time lounging in the hammock or in the GORGEOUS screened in porch.

The owners were wonderful. Made the rental process so easy and were available via phone during our stay for random questions.

Can't wait to head back this summer! Thanks for a wonderful stay!

What a wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

I wish we could make this a regular vacation spot. We were in New Hampshire for our son's wedding and this was the perfect place for us and our extended family to gather. The house has LOTS of space. The great room with kitchen, fireplace and views is fabulous. Our sons and their cousins loved the lake and all the activities available.
