Relaxing, peaceful location

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful 2 week stay at this cottage. It reminded us of our former cottage on Lake Winnipesaukee. It was so nice to wake up to the sound of the loons. Because it is a no wake area it was perfect for using the canoe and kayak. The cottage had every amenity we could want including skewers for toasting marshmallows. It is a beautifully landscaped and serene location. Tom and Deb were very welcoming.

Absolutely Perfect Lakeside Cottage!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our week was amazing and went by way too fast!

Tom and Deb are just great. They made us feel right at home and were available for anything that we might have needed as well as suggestions for area hikes.

The cottage is very comfortable and has everything you need from a large refrigerator to skewers for kabobs (which turned out great on the charcoal grill....the view while cooking was quite relaxing). My 16 and 21yr old kids loved the loft, it is roomy and spacious enough for both of them.

It was so quiet it was hard to believe that we were so close to so many things to do. We hiked to the Fall of Song at Castle in the Clouds, the Loon Center and a great trail just down the road. Also close by are restaurants, great shopping and Weirs Beach.

Being on the north end of the lake and a no wake zone makes it very enjoyable for using the paddle boat, sitting by the water, swimming or as my mother loved to do, sit on the dock enjoying the view and waiting for the loons to swim by. There is a loon sanctuary just down from the property so the opportunity to see and hear them is often. This was the first time I had heard a loon and totally fell in love with them.

The icing on this perfect vacation was being able to bring our Shepherd. He is very much part of the family and it wouldn't have been a family vacation without him....he too enjoyed sitting on the dock!

Tom and Deb just couldn't be any nicer and we had such a good time that we've already booked our stay for 2015!

Looking forward to seeing you and Ari next year,
Tessa, Alex, Mary Anne, Sonya & Drake

Amazing Place with Amazing Hosts!!

  • 5 of 5
Another wonderful stay! We absolutely love this cottage and I love the fact that we can bring our dog with us. The cottage has everything you need from a TV, full fridge, coffee maker, fans, and dishes. They have a wonderful dock that you can walk out on. We really enjoyed being able to bring our small fishing boat. They even have a canoe, rafts and noodles you can use. Tom and Debbie are amazing hosts and I couldn’t have met nicer people who really care about your stay. They are always giving us tips and suggestions on what to do and see. Tom even took us on a guided hike to Piper Mt. The views were wonderful!
On our last night there we enjoyed a glass of wine, some marshmallows and many laughs by the bon fire with Tom and Debbie. We will definitely be back!
This cottage in Meredith on Lake Winnisquam is the perfect place to stay because it is close to everything but secluded enough to have peace and quiet at night. There is a wonderful country store only 5 mins away that has a deli for sandwiches and also a meat dept. (you have to try the apple smoked fresh cut bacon) they also have fresh baked slices of pumpkin bread (so good)
A couple of things we did there and places I would suggest: Weirs beach has fireworks every Friday night, Paradise Beach Club (Weirs beach) for live entertainment and dancing, Pirate’s Cove mini golf, Meredith town docks (get the watermelon bowl), Anchor Marina at the Winnipesaukee pier, Weirs Beach (we rented a ski boat for the day) Canoe restaurant, Center Harbor (the best calamari) The Naswa beach bar, Mt. Major (beautiful views of Alton Bay)
Thanks Tom and Debbie for a wonderful stay! See you soon!

Relaxing Lake Getaway

  • 4 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our week away at the cottage. The owners were the perfect hosts - friendly, yet also giving us privacy. My 3 boys ages 14, 11 and 6 enjoyed the lake immensely. The canoe, paddle boat and water toys provided for use made it tons of fun. The shallow sandy area was perfect for our youngest and jumping off the dock in the deep water was the highlight for our oldest. I would highly recommend the cottage to anyone looking for a quiet, cozy cottage on the lake. The only surprise was that the owners cottage was in front of the rental cottage (which you could not see from the angle of the photos provided in the listing). But all in all, a very nice place!

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
Tom and Debbie are perfect hosts. My wife, daughter and I stayed for a week in this perfect cabin. Tom and Debbie made sure we had everything that we needed. They have water toys and let everybody use them. The landscaping in the yard is done perfectly. We didn't use the fire pit but it was there if we wanted. Perfect location on lake Winnisquam but just minutes to Winnipesaukee. Hope to come back next year!

Loved the Winnisquam Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the Winnisquam cottage was so relaxing and fun! We loved playing in the water off the dock, pedaling in the pedal boat, and taking fun day trips in the area. The Murphys were fantastic hosts and we would recommend this property to anyone looking for a fun stay on the lake. Thank you Murphys!
